PHAEDRAN and the VIRTUAL WORLD
The project is the brainchild of Shai Khalifa, and was originally conceived of and partially realised on the virtual world of SecondLife. However, circumstances led to the project relocating to Openlife Grid where it had a far better chance of reaching its full creative potential.
Shai now does most of the exploration of Phaedran and Zanith alone, but has occasional help from others, particularly for the more complex tasks involved. She also constructed the Museum of Phaedran Antiquities on Creek.
WHAT IS KNOWN SO FAR
The two regions of Phaedran and Zanith appear to be the central location for what survived of the Phaedran people (the Phaedrani) who found themselves transported through timespace and across realities.
Some remnants of the original home world civilisation can still be found above the waterline. However, it appears most of the area originally cast to Grid in the Dimension Experiment is now below the seas of both regions. It has yet to be established whether this is as a result of later destabilisation or was the original fall location. Indications tend to substantiate the theory of instability.
The area below the sea surface on Phaedran has proven to be incredibly rich and interesting to the project team, although only a small area has so far been explored.
Zanith seems to have been the home of the later generations of survivors, as there appear to be several different building styles and futher research has supported this theory. Found relatively early in the project was the village, however it required discovery of the manner of transportation used to access it before a visit to the site could be made.
The village is located some 250metres above the land surface and extends to at least 6 huge floating “islands”. The houses and buildings all appear abandoned, though some have recently seen occupancy again. It is hoped more people will bring life to Zanith Village over time. It's truly a remarkable place.
At this time, no exploration of the Zanith sea has been undertaken though it is planned for a later part of the project.
