    0x2A757-PRL | Carthium Mines

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A757-PRL While there is no actual mining of raw minerals in virtual platforms such as the //PRL, certain automated background processes have a tendency to manifest visually and become observable by the platform’s citizens. It turned out it wasn’t feasible to patch these manifestations outright, and so the //PRL developers implemented a secondary…

    0x2A756-PRL | Phantom’s Grotto

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A756-PRL After deserting his creators for their weakness of character, the “Phantom” of the //PRL carved a shrine of refuge out of a monolith in the Dustlands. Unable to age like real humans, Phantom decided to spend a century away from the civilisation he could not relate to. Rather, he used this time…

    0x2A755-PRL | Sirivia Dome Lobby

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A755-PRL While Racing is the most popular sport in the physical world, inside the //PRL the trading chip game, Fivemasters, has empassioned the hearts of the citizens. Its name comes from the five core Energies which the game’s Program Chips belong to: Force, Growth, Electron, Shell, and Flow. Fivemasters tournaments are held at…

    0x2A754-ii-PRL | Cricket Garden (Page 2)

    The //PRL influences creations in the physical world, as much as the other way around. For example, the Cricket Garden caught the eye of one of The Weave’s most established concert pianists, Lyna Wish. So inspired by what she called the “Magic Dance of the Crickets,” she wrote an entire symphony of the same name.…

    0x2A754-PRL | Cricket Garden

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A754-PRL The creatures that roam the //PRL are actually source-transparent AI, and so anyone can theoretically copy, refine and extend them. While there have been a few incidents of malicious actors trying to create bioweapons out of them, the open-code nature means that the overwhelming majority can develop disarming patches to return the…

    0x2A753-PRL | Substrate Tachyon Station

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A753-PRL Being a digital platform, many people think that engineering the //PRL is all about writing lines of code. The truth is that many years ago it reached a level of complexity where its own internal physics had to be considered and integrated with the physics of the non-digital world. One of the…

    0x2A751-PRL | Rust Village

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A751-PRL In the extended Divha Industrial Zone, a village was built to support the local manufacturing workforce. With the sweeping shutdowns of factories and most jobs lost, the village is now abandoned (at least on paper). In truth, a few people still choose to hang around the rust-coloured metal-and-sand town, generally developing projects…

    0x2A750-PRL | Taiko’s Digi-Wear Shop

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A750-PRL There are a series of hubs throughout the //PRL which act as town squares, general markets, libraries and other common purposes for its digital citizens. The hub Sirivia contains an exciting marketplace of wearable mods to make day-to-day life more streamlined. Taiko, known equally for his eccentricity and geniusly minimal designs, has…

    0x2A74F-PRL | Window Factory

    Datapedia ID: 0x2A74F-PRL An abandoned factory sits on the outskirts of //PRL’s Industrial Town of Divha. Built as part of one business’ short-lived venture in manufacturing digital aesthetics, it gets its name from the company’s line of custom-made windows for digital construction. The factory remains standing and empty – one of the iconic reminders that…
