The City In the Sky was recently discovered in the Andromeda Galaxy and named a planet. It is not one mass though, there is a giant glowing sphere in the center and many clusters of islands mimicking regions of earth rotate around the sphere. These include diverse regions such as a jungle, river lands, and even a volcano. A species that I will talk about later already lives on this planet and have advanced civilizations, each different island region has their own kingdom and constantly are at war. They have an interesting currency which we will touch on later. In addition they have constructed some islands into a power generator that all kingdoms use, they power all the homes which all are large futuristic towers that are built vertically, it also powers mysterious trinkets that turn into any type of media the user wants to consume like a video game, tv, show or song. The food also is like this and is perfectly healthy and changes the texture, color, and taste. They have also built a complex system of sky trains that they call the “Skyways.”
The atmosphere around the islands is similar to ours consisting of oxygen and the same sorta greenhouse effect only controlled. The sphere at the center is the main gravity well, so all the islands are perfectly angled at it. Somehow all the islands are floating even though the gravity keeps them in the atmosphere, perhaps once all the islands were connected at the center of the planet. We did a scan of the islands and discovered that one of the two species of intelligent life on the planet is called the loocoa and they are the ones who built everything. The other species that lives here is in a region we will touch on later. In our scan we also discovered that there are no moons, only the islands. The Loocoa appear to have the body of a chicken without any feathers and the head of a human but the animal group they belong to is indistinguishable. At least the regular ones are, because the Loocoa adapt depending on the region they are in. For example, the ones in the mountains have feathers and beaks. The river land Loocoa have scales and fins.
All islands used to be united under the king of modern day castle town islands. One day an insane shadow mage blew all the islands apart and created the core, which erased everyone’s memories of the kingdom in the past and they formed separate kingdoms. In the different areas, the Loocoa adapted, for example the ones in the mountain grew feathers and became more bird-like. The different kingdoms had different kings, each being the god of each area. Each god also carries a medallion that grants the holder that Loocoas abilities
As I mentioned before their money is complicated, all the kingdoms have a currency called Looccoin that changes like real crypto currency. But, the currency is worth more the more of it you have and it is really confusing. Now, I will go into extreme detail on each region. The vendors in different areas don’t just use Looccoin, sometimes they trade for other special materials.
The Grumblupop Plains
The plains is a large area where Loocoa form different tribes but are still united under their king and god, a larger Loocoa that wields two bow and arrows at once somehow. The Loocoa in the plains are naturally green colored to hide in the grass because of this. Not many plants grow in the plains so many tribes make bows and hunt down other tribes. Some tribes are peaceful vegetarians that grow their own food. Most tribes don’t stay in one place for too long and travel on their rocket carriers that carry their portable homes. One tribe, the Loocoaarians have settled down and have started to become a village with a shop and everything. Their king can wield two bows and arrows at once somehow and can run really fast. This king’s medallion grants the user the ability to dash in the air.
The Pinesnaplius Forest
The forest is an area that’s islands are close to the plains and do similar things, they also have tribes but unlike the plains, they don’t eat each other because they have more food like mushrooms to eat. The Loocoa in the forest are also green, when the islands were connected at the core, the Loocoa from the plains migrated to the forest and are still green after the regions were separated. Their homes are built into the ground and come out in the bottoms of the islands and it looks really cool. Their king lives in a clearing in the forest and is very peaceful, their medallion does not do much, it grants the user the ability to access the skyways for some reason.
The Shorpledorp Riverlands
The Loocoa here have fins and flippers allowing them to swim through the rivers quickly but they can still walk on land. There are other Loocoa that live there which are much smaller, they are simply a human head on a fish body. The finned Loocoa hunt the fish Loocoa and eat them. The fish Loocoa do not have any civilization, they exist to be eaten by the finned Loocoa. The finned Loocoa have built paths through the rivers with jets in them so they can swim extremely quickly to their destination. These are called water tunnels by the Loocoa. There are many waterfalls that come off of the islands and there are islands below them that catch the waterfalls.
Their king is massive and lives in a lake on the islands, this lake is dangerous though because there are extremely ferocious fish Loocoa who like eating flesh, their king is the only being that prevents them from leaving the lake and harming the other Loocoa. Their king’s medallion grants the user the ability to swim underwater.
In a more distant area of islands, there is a massive volcano with reddish earth all around it with lava flowing everywhere. The Loocoa here have hard shells to protect from falling rocks that fly out of the volcano, these Loocoa are also bigger and stronger. Rivers of lava flow through the lands of the volcano, so the Loocoa make larger draw bridges entirely made out of metal. These Loocoa don’t obey social standards and did not build towers, they instead built huts that are built extremely horizontally because they just need to be rebellious. They have one main settlement called Blorpville named after the sound the volcano makes, there are rebels who have a hideout outside Blorpville that nobody can find. These rebels come into Blorpville every week and kidnap a child. These rebels were rebels because they did want to conform to social standards and they built hidden underground towers.
They primarily mine and did build a system of mine carts that were abandoned because they were a safety hazard, they sealed off the entrance to the mines with these mine carts but there is a legend that there are hidden riches. Many have tried to enter but they all lost their lives for some unexplained reason. They have their own train system that goes over the lava, this was also abandoned but it still works. There is no food there so they take the Skyways to other areas with more vegetation to plunder those lands. Their king lives in a tunnel that can only be accessed by entering the mouth of the volcano. The king has a large shell and wears a mask and armor made out of rocks, they are rumored to be the being who causes the eruptions of the volcano. Their king’s medallion grants the user the ability to withstand the highest of temperatures and the ability to swim in lava.
The Bumbledump Jungle
The Bumbledump Jungle is home to many types of Loocoa like small Loocoas that resemble dragonflies and Loocoas that are frogs. The dominant Loocoa are regular Loocoa size and have small wings that allow them to jump twice in the air that allow them to jump between the treetops. There towers are built into very thick trees that are also very tall that seem like the redwoods of Earth. Their main settlement is called Bumbledumpville. The trees in this jungle bear fruit that are like bananas only they are blue and on the inside there is frozen hot sauce. There are other fruits that look like this but they are all poisonous. A study shows that recently the trees have been bearing less fruit, the Bubledumpians say that their king is angry because of intruders. Their gods medallion grants the ability to jump a second time while in the air.
They built a shrine to their king made completely out of stone bricks. This shrine is inside the underground of the jungle islands. Recently a group of bandits have broken in making them unable to give offerings to their god. They cannot tend to the shrine because of the bandits.
The Snowfall Mountains
As you can tell by this completely creative name. These mountain islands are constantly being plagued by snowstorms and blizzards. This is not a result of an angry king but simply what the weather is there. The Loocoa here have large wings and beaks that allow them to fly between the mountains using the snowy winds. They are skilled in using small feathers like daggers. The mountains are constantly patrolled by guards who have armor that makes their feathers into daggers which they can fire like bullets. They also have steel bird shaped masks which allow them to shoot blasts of icy winds that freeze things.
As you can tell these birdlike Loocoa, are a warrior species, if anyone wants to live in their cozy settlement nestled in the mountains, they must prove their honor in combat. Their king is just a bigger version of the regular bird Loocoa and they live at the peak of the mountain where the bird Loocoa lives. They are sealed behind a large door that only those who prove their honor can enter. Their king’s medallion grants the user the ability to glide off tall objects. As I said earlier, you can earn your honor by doing battle with a Loocoa commander or guard, but there is a trial you must pass as well. The person who attempts this trial must venture into the mountains and find four torches with blue flames. The mountains will be crawling with warriors and the natural conditions of a blizzard. The bird Loocoas also share the mountains with other more beastly bird Loocoas who are wild and ferocious, they crave flesh too.
The Shafty Badlands
These badland islands are not just badlands, they are also next to a desert but they are commonly grouped together. The Loocoa here are only one type. These Loocoa have claws designed for digging so they have a gold mining operation in the badlands. This gold is paid for by other kingdoms because they all want to flaunt their wealth. There is not much to see here except cacti that smell flesh and elongate to wrap around a Loocoa and stab them, they then drain the Loocoas blood and insides. Their king is constantly busy in the mines digging for gold, they dig so hard that the pieces of gold that fly at him have formed gold armor over the years of them digging. His medallion grants the user the ability to dig through walls of dirt. The mine shafts are a dangerous and complicated labyrinth, the cacti have worked their way underground so they have to be wary of the cacti murdering them.
This area is not dangerous at all. The region is one giant city surrounding a castle where their king lives. Before the islands were separated, we theorize Castle Town’s king used to be the king of the entire planet before it was split up. In the castle there is a door that leads to a bridge to the core of the planet. This door can only be opened if all the medallions are placed in the slots on the door. In the west portion of Castle Town there is the retail district or the market. There are many shops such as a weapons and clothing shop. In the south portion where the skyway station is, there is a tourist district for visitors designed to drain them of their money. In the east portion there is the residential district where most of the housing is with a few shops here in there. In the north portion there is the back of the castle where the nobles meet and also the gateway to the core.
This is a good time to touch on how the islands are rotated compared to the core. When they were blown apart we theorize that they were rotated a lot and some islands aligned a lot like Saturn’s rings. They rotate around horizontally, these islands include the mountains, volcano, and castle town. So the gateway that leads to a bridge that goes to the core is possible because of this.
This is where the planet’s TV stations are, the main tv station makes a game show hosted by an extremely flamboyant Loocoa host. His name is Fabio and he promised that the billionth person to visit Castle Town will be put on his game show. That’s about all I have to say about Castle Town.
This concludes my research report. The Loocoa have built quite a civilization, each one having their own personality, but there’s still something I am curious about, what is inside the core?
