Description[edit | edit source]

The Dome Hub is a type of Civilization that is found at the end of the Ancient Abyss. Egyptians populate the Dome Hub and, rarely, you will be able to recruit an Egyptian Mummy.
It is a gigantic, towering jade structure with a large glass dome on top of it, the birthplace of the egyptian civilization, as well its last remnant. The interior of the dome is completely dry and inside it, an ancient egyptian society develops in the safety of the dome, built with the help of an unknown force.

The following are the NPCs found in the Dome Hub.

Lore[edit | edit source]

The Dome Hub was the birthplace of mankind, a garden of Eden hidden in the depths of The Living Infinite, created by an unknown, benevolent being, affectionally called "Mother", the original god of mankind. Inside, the last remnants of the ancient egyptian civilization develops in relative safety, hidden away from the rest of mankind, shielded from the need of technological advancements or the further development of their society, and living in a constant state of stagnation, like a living fossil of the ancient societies of mankind. Although they live in harmony and safety, they are doomed to a grim future, and their fates can be glimpsed through the Mechanical Abyss, the alternate biome of the Ancient Abyss.

The Egyptians are the citizens of the Dome Hub.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Egyptians are the remnants of Ancient Egyptian society. Unlike most beings encountered in The Living Infinite, the Egyptians are humans, and wear ancient egyptian clothing and carry swords. They have maintained many aspects of their ancestors' culture, but have not kept their religious beliefs; instead, they believe in an entity simply referred to as "the mother", which is hinted to have been made up by the pharaoh to control the populace and have a claim to the throne.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

When they first see a player, they will wave at them with their sword. They will stand in their positions and if a player interacts with them, they will talk with the player using their native language, which can be translated by the Translation Book. If they are attacked or robbed, they will chase the players and attack with their swords, and may invade the submarine if you try to escape. They are capable of destroying doors, meaning even your own ship will not be safe if you decide to attack them.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

The Dynamite is the best item to use if you want to kill the Egyptians and steal their goods. If no dynamite is available, large crews with healing items may be able to tank their damage and kill them. These enemies can NOT swim, if you trick them down the ladder leading up to the dome, you can kill them at the bottom.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • Behold!
  • Our mighty monuments to the mother beyond!
  • Please behold them.
  • We've worked very hard on them for a very long time.
  • Praise the mother and all that...
  • ... But it sure would be nice if she would stop by to appreciate them...
  • ... Once in a while...

  • Praise be to the mother!
  • Behold the gifts she has bestowed upon us!
  • The sand you walk in!
  • The warmth of the sky!
  • The protection of the dome!
  • To not appreciate such gifts is to not appreciate life!

  • I've heard stories of those who try to venture outside our safe dome.
  • They say the submerged world is rampant
  • with danger and wildlife from your wildest nightmares!
  • Is it true traveler?
  • Maybe someday I'll see for myself what lies outside this dome...

  • Hello again traveler.
  • Oh? I'm sorry, I thought you were someone else.
  • A strange fellow on his circular machine often stops by...
  • ... To regale us with his tales of adventure and comic mishaps
  • I'd ask if you have any tales to share...
  • ... But you don't look like the comical type.

  • Are you familiar with mother scripture?
  • "A day in peace is a day in paradise"
  • Wiser words have never been spoken.
  • Praise the mother!

  • Everyone here is so obsessed with this "mother" figure.
  • Don't tell anyone I said this...
  • ... But I'm not convinced she's even real.
  • Nobody but the pharaoh claims of ever seen her!
  • And I find it hard to trust the eyes of that old man.
  • If you ask me these monuments are in his name, not hers.

  • I can see in your eyes that you do not trust the word of mother.
  • What foolish beliefs you have.
  • Take my advice and stay here.
  • Live with us or else return from whence you came.
  • For scripture says what lies below here...
  • ... Can only lead to the chaos of the mind.

  • Welcome to our dome!
  • The prodigy of the all-knowing mother!
  • ... Excuse me?
  • It’s true!
  • She even knows why your heads are so fiendishly misshapen!
  • No, I will not divulge such information.
  • You are not worthy an audience to such sacred answers.

  • Alas! Another bona fide vision!
  • The scripture foretold this day!
  • “Here, to those gifted few who wear the hedjet, I grant asylum.”
  • My hedjet is here upon my head…
  • And I am safe today, like every day!
  • I can’t imagine anything going wrong!

  • *sniff, sniff*
  • Huh? Oh, no I’m not crying.
  • Really, it’s just allergies!
  • WHAT? Say that again!
  • Am I going to cry to my MUMMY?
  • How dare you!
  • Being insecure of your own disfigured appearance -
  • Gives you no authority to mock the beautiful!

  • Hello there wanderers!
  • I’d advise you take a look at our shop.
  • We profit off of the wanderlust, such as yourselves!
  • I don’t know why anyone would choose to leave this haven.
  • The mother keeps us safe.
  • Anyway, pay up and carry on.

  • The end is near!
  • Or rather... You’re near the end.
  • Save your souls!
  • For a large sum, the mothers scriptures can be yours!
  • Nothing is too pricey when it comes to your salvation!
  • The end is near!

  • Let me guess...
  • You’re looking for the fountain of youth?
  • Your kind is so feeble minded that you misunderstood.
  • Pharaoh was only speaking of the old hang out for adolescents.
  • It’s really the fountain FOR youth.
  • Only for the trendy youngins, that is.

  • A pity that is, truly.
  • Oh, me? I’m not surprised you’d eavesdrop.
  • I was only saying it’s as clear as our miraculous blue sky.
  • The fact that your mother doesn’t love you the way ours does.
  • Why else would she dress you so?
  • Well, you’re more than welcome to switch allegiance.

  • Blessed day!
  • In the name of Mother, I warn you!
  • Though his bones are old...
  • And his rest is deep...
  • That slumbering giant is still a great threat!
  • It will swallow your vessel whole!

  • Shh!
  • The beast slumbers below.
  • Waiting...
  • The high priest said he was put there.
  • By who I wonder?

  • You dare transgress upon us?!
  • Face my blade!
  • The eye is upon you!
  • Your death is certain!
  • Cease your existence, foul one!

The Egyptian Priestess is the Doctor of the Dome Hub.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Egyptian Priestess is the religious authority of the egyptian society, and is in charge of the religious ceremonies and practices, as well as medicinal procedures. She is easily differenciated from her fellow egyptians due to her lack of hair, blind white eyes and unique attire.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

When she first sees a player, she will wave at them with her staff. She and her brethren will stand in their positions and if a player interacts with them, they will talk with the player using their native language, which can be translated by the Translation Book. If they are attacked or robbed, they will chase the players and attack with their swords, and may invade the submarine if you try to escape. They are capable of destroying doors, meaning even your own ship will not be safe if you decide to attack them.

Tactics[edit | edit source]

The Dynamite is the best item to use if you want to kill the Egyptians and steal their goods. If no dynamite is available, large crews with healing items may be able to tank their damage and kill them. These enemies can NOT swim, if you trick them down the ladder leading up to the dome, you can kill them at the bottom.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

  • I sense you are hurt and sick.
  • May the mother grant you health.

  • You've arrived at the right place for medicine.
  • Blessings upon you.

  • Please accept this treatment for what ails you.
  • Better?

  • You cannot continue your journey downward!
  • The mother must be protected!

The Egyptian Mummy is a recruitable NPC rarely found in the Dome Hub.

Description[edit | edit source]

The Egyptian Mummy is the mummified remains of a long dead Egyptian, that has been brought back to life through the use of unknown means. It is visibly rotten and most of the linen bandages have fallen off, exposing its decomposing, rotten body.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

Once recruited, they will join the crew with a pipe wrench and will be able to do many tasks, such as repairing breaches, attacking invading enemies or enemies inside caves or using the Submarine's Turret. Similarly to Crew Bots, they can be instructed through the use of the Command Wheel to order them to do specific tasks.
