World 114

World 114 sees the emergence of ALLYSEUM, a society that has recently reintroduced themselves to humanity. Originally the pre-straits Chinese from Malacca, they had hidden themselves underground to avoid colonisation by the Portuguese in the 1500s. They have developed to be a more inclusive, peaceful and pacifistic society. From the emergence from their subterranean environment, they seek to spread their ways to the surface world.

What if …

the pre-straits Chinese hid underground to avoid colonisation, and have emerged to spread their culture to the rest of the world?


fictional societies like Wakanda and ones from subterranean fiction; real world caves, Peranakan Culture and colour blindness
