EOW#74 Real World: Your Neighbors Backyard
bc: 60 years ago, this island used to be home of a religious fanatic. One day he abadoned all his statues and just disappeard... A rumour says, that he died of hearth attack, when walking along his garden and his staues, because they loved him, burried him on the top of the hill under the statue of archangel...
Gardens of the Running Man
After the dimensional gaters where opened, this weird little plane in a backyard dimension hardly stable enough to build on was discovered. The island is surrounded by a lake which ends in nothingness. Sail or swimm to far from the coast and you fall over an edge. The statues in this garden paradise all give the strange feeling that the are running from or to something yet unknown. Frozen in their movement, these statues look almost human was it not for the absurd proportions and shapes.
This little paradise, unspoiled by modern machinery like the steampowered locomotives and petrol powered cars, is now used a holiday destination for the rich upper class of society.
Rinoculous was the center of power and knowledge for many thousands of years before the dawn of humanity. It's residents were the inventors of grand technology which would later be discovered and claimed by the thieving humans. But despite the Rinoculians power, their city began to crumble and so to did the morality of its inhabitants. Civil war broke out, nearly obliterating the Rinoculians entirely. The survivors fled the planet in search of new life, leaving behind some of their offspring to watch and wait for the time to rise and take power once more....
"Deep into the furthest regions of the frozen sea, lies some strange structures emerging from the water. Made from an unknown and undestructible material, these walls are always warm to the touch as if an everflowing energy radiated from the heart of the massive city. Nobody has ever discovered neither the purpous, nor the origin of this strange place, and it is so huge and inhuman that mariners called it island of the absurd.
In the east side of the island is the garden of sculpture, a set of structures of more human proportions that are lined as a grid. Lately, a confrery of monks settled there. They walk among the inhuman sculptures, admiring their perfect shapes and meditating."
Treasure hunters journal= entry 21- "Well, I've been out here on this absurd island with strange statues. I have dug up practically the whole island and still nothing... I have eaten the last of my food rations. Today I was forced to devour a turtle. It was awful. And the worst of it is a goddamned parrot is drinking all my beer...."
Loki The Wizard of Lies endulged himself with a beautiful landscape, and filled it with images that evoke frantic action and mockery at the same time, naming the place "the Island of the Absurd". This garden the most attractive place in the Island, and is tought to have been Loki's favorite hiding place from the wrath of both Odin and his fellow gods.
Marked as insane and exiled from Rapa Nui, the inhabitants of Rapa Nel ("Island/rock of the Fools") kept on builiding Moai's their own way...
Not only were the monolithic sculptures ridiculous, but the garden was also absurdly large. It took days just to walk from one side to the other, and even though the Major had dropped me off at the farting statue, I wouldn't be able to make it to the Great Bull of Ludiocracy until sometime tomorrow. At least I would have some time to spend at F*#$ You Hill and Ass Mound Valley.
