Another chapter from Galenun Hegem's memoirs, the mason that oversaw the construction of Adessa.
Chapter III: The Laboratories
But though or city was born as a place to protect the knowledge that our great race had amassed in all its history, I was determined to enusre that our accunulation of knowledge woulkd proceed, if not grow, once the city had been completed. And so I began construction of the Laboratories.
How curious it was to put up the halls and doorways, with the thought that this skeletal structure might one day house the minds that put an end to war, or make travel between great distances instantaneous, or make the moon shine as bright as the desert sun. It was humbling, yet affirmed my resolve to construct a space of timeless experimentation.
It is in this building that I have sheltered the creativity and ingenuity of our race, the qualities that set us apart from others. Only on completing it did I know we would need as grand a building to foster our diplomacy, and so I set to work on creating the Domus Politica.
