Strength of Steel, Will of Iron
Oh lovely. So how would I pitch this to you? Is there a sheet or something?
That... did not answer my question.@Enki : Okay. So society on board the New Heaven (unless i'm misunderstanding you) differs from normal in that most of the "high tech stuff" goes to interpreting the ship itself. The monastery seers use mostly magic to "communicate" with the vessel, while others, outside the monastery, form a rudimentary economy/community to support the monastery, which is basically a medieval village of passengers waiting to arrive at the Promise land, help however they can. They primarily exist because the monks are benevolent and to supply the regular crew with a sense of 'home'. This is all possible because the parts of the ship that people live in is a GIANT bubble of land like a dyson sphere from star trek (land surrounding a point of light). The rest of the ship is generally not habitable; anyone whose ever entered died of radiation poisoning.
Altathe can eat other foods, he just needs Primal Energy for his body to function properly. The plants contain primal energy, but only because the plants absorb the energy from the ground. However it is possible to bring in hydroponics to grow crops using water treated with Primal Dust, assuming the ship has enough space for a small one.Hm... I like what you got, Chel, but there is one thing that stands out to me: Can Altathe only eat what's found on Ventali? Infrastructure doesn't really exist to shuttle food back and forth, is my thought. Didn't you mention Primal Energy can be extracted from Ventali Plants - Maybe he grows supplementary Primal energy on the ship? (there's lots of space in the living quarters, it's a whole bio-sphere)
