LATMA Commons

LATMA-COMMONS_DESC: LATMA Commons — Welcome to the Matrix!%r%rElaborate animated graphics and tinny advertising jingles fill this enormous marble chamber. Centered around a huge directional compass that indicates the cardinal vectors of Matrix propagation, the Commons is the doorstep of the surrounding virtual area, a somewhat overwhelming introduction to the festival of commerce that is the Matrix. Rival virtual tourism programs simultaneously scream for your attention while more conservative corporate advertisements loom in the background, passively reaping their daily harvest of patrons. Participating in the mad dance of images are legions of shoppers, automata, and a steady multi-directional flow of gem-like network packets- the pulse of the Matrix is frenzied in the Commons. Any number of keys and links blossom out of this room into the remainder of the Matrix.

COMMONS-BASEMENT_DESC: LATMA Commons — Trash Room%r%rDefault blue walls, interlaced with vertical and horizontal white stripes, box off this virtual trash bin. Heaps of rubble have accumulated here, compromising discharged applications, fragmented icons, perhaps the occasional image that still twitches… service automata routinely push this detrius (and curious dumpster-divers) into their final terminus, the de-rezzing funnel.

COMMONS-SUPPORT_DESC: LATMA Commons — Help Desk%r%r"Welcome to Matrix Kindergarden. Welcome to Matrix Kindergarden…" a soft female voice reiterates tirelessly. Soft peach walls and yellow carpeting frame this comfortable, if alarmingly friendly, room. The sheer realism of the room suggests its orientation towards first-time users unaccustomed to the more abstract localities of Matrix space. Bright, childish poster-graphics rotate through cycles of frequently asked questions while service automata drone out the maximally useful response to endless queues of baffled inquirers. A variety of tutorial services are available for the neophyte and the professional alike.

Various displays line the walls of the egg-like chamber you find yourself within.

COMMONS-SECURITY_DESC: LATMA Commons — Security Complex%r%rThe low-ceiling and close quarters of this chamber resemble the bridge of a battleship; however, the large rectangular windows overlook the primary arena of the Commons, not the sea. The analogy is otherwise sustained in the inordinate amount of monitoring, targeting and computational machinery that abounds in the room, and in the perspicacity with which on-duty officers man their posts. In addition to the massive windows there are several smaller displays which monitor various links around the Bright Matrix, especially within the Corporate Zone. Links branch out from this chamber into the other departments of the security establishment.

COMMONS-BRIG_DESC: Commons Security — The Brig%r%rThe worst thing about this detention chamber is its lack of definition. Sheer and indiscernible blackness surrounds you, no sign of any links or icons. Nevertheless, you have a horrible feeling that you are being watched… perhaps that your thoughts themselves are no longer private. Movement in any direction is possible, but yields no result. You have little alternative to waiting for someone to release you.

A plush oriental rug supports a glass table on which popular contemporary magazines have been artfully arranged. Seated in an paisley armchair next to the fireplace is a young woman with a notepad who eagerly awaits your comments or suggestions about LATMA Commons.

Corporate Consortium Firewall — "hadrian-gw"%r%rAcross the ceiling of LATMA Commons shimmers a wide, slightly curvate red sheet of energy that ripples as icons and datastreams meld through it. No visible conduits or links are demarcated on the surface of the firewall, but a solemn black sign, shaped like diamond, announces the conditions of transit in a multi-lingual monotone. Although no obvious security oversees the entrance to the Corporate Zone, you can't help but feel that vigilant eyes and ears surround you…

A semicircle of enormous globes, each distinguished from its fellows by color, hover just above the surface of the platform, nearly obscuring the turbulent sky through which clouds roll with unnatural fleetness. A finely carved obelisk prefaces both the spheres and a circular gap in the platform that appears to be some kind of chute.

Within the paved courtyard of its cloister garth, a bristling fountain sprays sparkling, clear water into a basin from which many passers-by drink. The calm breeze blowing through the pillars of the ambulatory is belied, to some degree, by the flimmering beams of datapaths that trisect the cloister. The usual press of icons rocket through any of several adjacent links.

T818-02_DESC: Cultural Zone — Welcome Mat%r%rSeemingly mile-long movie advertisements wall off the flat blue 'sky' beyond the Abbey checkpoint, dwarfing the considerably smaller (but no less imposing) earthbound marketing graphics. Wildly gesticulating automated hawkers for concerts, sensies, and theater productions abound, as do tourists whose icons are literally frozen in wonder of the spectacle before them. A virtual road, known in the Cultural Zone as the 'Main Drag,' meanders north through the thick of the Zone's activity. The sides of the road are lined with the links of resident entertainment and business services.

T818-03_DESC: Cultural Zone — SpreeShop 2023!%r%rThe rhythm of commerce on this block of the Main Drag is almost blinding, a gyrating blizzard of datapackets, icons, and advertisements obscuring any clear path to most available links. Prices are boldly announced by one vendor only to be answered and undercut by a dozen more within moments. Shopper-icons flicker with enthusiasm and squeal with delight as they bounce from storefront to storefront in a never-ending ecstacy of consumerism.

Several Matrix-denizens have halted along the sides of the road to enjoy intimate conference with an old acquaintance, or perhaps a new romance. Virtual dance-halls, dating groups, and chat systems encompass the majority of the available links of this area, each openly advertising the clientelle, and the price-range, to which it caters.

Flat-screen films of all eras are available for instantaneous digestion within any number of second-run screening houses, while hourly soap-opera sensies are played out before slavish audiences who rarely, if ever, enjoy a life of their own. While the street is unusually free of browsers, the venues themselves are crammed full of overlapping icons.

Realies Amalgamated

T213-20_DESC: Realities Amalgamated — Lobby%r%r%tA pair of double doors, their backs upholstered in tanned and buckled Corinthian leather, exit this comfortable seating area into the Matrix proper. A floating slab of marble that interposes between the doors and remainder of the room supports a duty roster, a number of glossy digital pamphlets, and silver tea set complete with Wedgewood china cups. Several automata, rendered as attractive and conservatively-dressed young women, circulate around the room, greeting newcomers and providing information about RA Online.%r%tThe room itself is cast as a comfortable study, fringed by oak wainscotting and carpeted with two spacious and carefully coordinated Persian rugs. A set of leather sofas corral a wide fireplace before which a glass coffee table lies. Four Tudor windows give on a peaceful woodland scene; in one of their berths is a ring of chimes that sounds, periodically, from a gentle draft. A short corridor leading out of the room is prefaced by a gold plaque reading 'Conference Room,' and a full-length mirror across from the fireplace is also demarcated as a link.

Icons propel themselves between patches of diffuse floor with careless ease, oblivious of the mile-long plummet to the checkboard ground below. Many of the patrons have donned icons that mimic cherubic wings and haloes. Next to the bar, an unmanned harp plucks out a soothing and unassuming melody that obscures more intimate chatter from prying ears. At some distance from the patrons rests a turbulent black funnel cloud whose spire leads down towards the earth.

No drinks are served in this area- the patrons seem to have other pursuits in mind. Pitchforks flash and stab randomly at passing icons; cauldrons hiss and boil as they are scanned. Many of the patrons have donned icons that mimic demonic horns and tails. The downstairs appears more popular than its celestial counterpart.

An Easter basket materializes beneath your icon, cradling you for the duration of your shopping experience on a bed of translucent plastic 'grass.' Snowflake-shaped cutouts of NuYen gently fall from the ceiling of this chamber, swarming with scores of elves, white rabbits, and roasted turkeys. Levitating pedestals of varying size and import flaunt a wide range of commodities for your consideration; from watches, cellular phones, and jewelry to pewter statuary and foil-wrapped chocolates. Tinny Yuletide carols resonate in your ears, and twisted throngs of pine-branches and mistletoe inch across the ceiling like chinese lanterns.

RA Fiberopticon

T213-21_DESC: Realities Amalgamated — The FiberOpticon%r%r%tStructured like the interior of a hollow polyhedron, this area is literally a panorama of contiguous flatscreen images derived from various locations around the Bright Matrix. From low murmurs to high-pitched carrier exchanges, innumerable sounds emanate from unseen and untraceable sources. Holovid news feeds, Construct security cameras and satellite imaging photographs contribute to this ceaseless deluge of information; the chorus is too rich for any human mind to assimilate, but statistical and filtration automata flitter across the room from scene to scene, composing their summaries. Periodically, one of the automata will race through the conduit to the database, regurgitate its findings, and resume its post without missing a step in this maddening dance.
T213-22_DESC: Realities Amalgamated — Virtual Conferencing%r%r%tBoasting a surface that might easily suffice for a banquet, the grand mahogany table that dominates this subdued but fine conferencing room is starkly clean and clear. Two dozen or so high-backed chairs have been meticulously arranged around the table, facing a rectangular two-dimensional screen that displays the Realities Amalgamated logo proudly as it hangs improbably in space.%r%tIn one of the corners of the room, a semi-circular counter cordons off a wet bar, copiously supplied with libations for visiting business officials. A single bay window, fringed with retracted lace curtain, looks out on a quiet rustic scene: rolling hills, a distant forest, perhaps the occasional deer sampling the local flora. A broad and well-lit corridor returns to the RA Online lobby.

Next to the pool is a table on which a touch-screen computer monitor displays a series of help files. Although the walls and ceiling (and floor, for that matter) are invisible to the naked eye, an archway, standing alone in space, leads out of this area into a busier chamber that houses some sort of large blue sphere.%r%r(OOC: For assistance, type: scan computer)

T213-27_DESC: Realities Amalgamated — "chrome-gw"%r%r%tYou are free-floating in the periphery of a grand spherical chamber whose curvate walls are coated with blue steel, knobs, flashing displays, and writhing coils of virtual energy. In the center of the room is a dull-blue globe that occasionally strikes out at the walls with bristling licks of electricity. Gravity and even direction seem to be outmoded concepts in this area; although the room appears to be gradually revolving around its centerpiece, the distance between yourself and every other point in the room never really seems to alter… The six conduits that exit "chrome-gw" manifest as little more than white discs affixed to the walls, labelled with their destinations.
