|Travel||Stargates: Sanguine to Beta Arae|
|Planets and Megastructures||Topia: An ancient and venerable planet, first of the Beta Arae worlds that later became the Utopia Sphere. Colonised and terraformed by Clade Columbia Bartlebel from Ceres Mater and their AI guardian, Chesed the Giftbringer. The surface is 63% water, with two continents, Demeter and Eros. Demeter is an ultratech supported pastoral paradise, while Eros is a land of unashamed hedonism, today mostly populated and administered by liberated erotogini. The Gleaming Pinnacle, an artificial island of smart matter, is the oldest temple to Ceresian Keterism outside Ceres Mater. Though most believers moved to Cyrene in the 4800s, the Pinnacle remains for Keterist pilgrims looking for historical perspectives of divergence. |
The Topia Bracelet: A Banks Orbital constructed around Topia, opened in 5201 to commemorate the thousandth anniversary of Chesed's ascension to the fifth toposophic. It rotates in sync with Topia and is connected to the surface via magmatter braced space cables. The majority of Topia's inhabitants live on the bracelet, with the planet itself being reserved for pilgrimages to the 'original utopia'
Mozi: A swarm of moon nodes powered by a Dyson Bubble at 6 million km from the primary. Constructed prior to Topia-Chesed's ascension to the fourth toposophic to house the growing Archailect. Mozi is now connected to Chesed's other nodes via wormhole buses.
The Splay: A dyson swarm with an average orbital distance of 2 AUs, composed of million of orwoods, freespheres, Bishop Rings and other habitats. The Splay grew organically over millennia as various groups arrived at Eutopia and split apart to build their own ideal world's under Chesed's guidance. The Splay contains over a thousand different polities under Chesed's guidance. Some are continually pampered by hyperturings, others run themselves with only occasional intervention to stop them degrading, and still others are reserves for endangered clades.
Cyrene: Cyrene is a supraplanetary shell built around a gas giant planet at 17 AUs from the primary. Constructed in the 4000s following a resurgence in Ceresian Keterism, it has since become home to a variety of philosophies espousing ascendance hedonism. A number of groups migrating from Cyrene have since joined Keter and the TRHN.
