It was said that the world used to be a place with both night and day. I do not know if it’s true, nor if it’s real, but I do know that in Revlis, the sky is always dark and these glowing spheres light up our paths. I dream of a day where I could see day.
Hmm how would I describe Revlis?
When I walk on the streets, I always take care not to stumble over the scattered orbs. These glowing orbs don’t just emit light though, but heat as well, it’s always so comfortable because my feet gets warm. Contrarily, my torso gets really cold, but I would just pick up an orb to warm myself up. The red ones are usually the warmest.
There’s no need to work everyday since everyone shares and helps out when needed. Food is picked from the plants growing around the town, and also from the farms within. Animals, such as chickens and pigs, are also bred for food. If we’re lucky, wild boars sometimes appear. Oh, I forgot to mention that Revlis is completely surrounded by forests and jungles. Plants and flowers always seem to be growing insanely out of control, so the edge of the town has to be trimmed daily to suppress their endless growth, and no one dares to venture into that unknown outside either since everything is safe in here.
Not having to work everyday really brings out the boredom in me though. I end up heading to the library to read the same old books whenever I need to kill time. The library only has information books on how to distinguish between poisonous plants and edible plants, and how to kill and eat animals properly, which we were already taught since young. The rest of them are some grammar books and dictionaries, which are real boring once you can understand English, y’know?
I know Revlis is the epitome of peaceful and safe, and how could I have any complaints about my lovely community? It’s just…there’s a constant nagging feeling that this isn’t enough. It’s boring, it’s almost… lifeless. I want to see and know the world, I want adventure.
Facts of the world (the non-narrative version of above)
The story begins in Revlis, where everyone lives in perfect harmony.
It is constantly night, and has been for as far as the oldest person in the community knows.
Revlis is a small town, where everyone knows each other’s names even if they aren’t friends. Surrounded by thick growth, no one has successfully ventured out, nor has anyone, other than wild boars, ever appeared. All attempts to hack a path through the growth simply did not work as the fast growth proves too much to handle. Nor did fire, as the forest contains enough moisture to snuff it out after a while, and it cannot burn for long enough to create any space for anyone to walk through. It is also practically impossibly to climb the trees, and not get attacked by branches from almost all directions.
Survival within Revlis is easy though, food is plentiful, as long as the people know what they can eat. For water, besides the wells that exists, there is always a lot of dew on the plants.
Although no one is discontent with this life, most of them are bursting with curiosity to find out if there’s anything beyond.
