The Syka Commons

Postby Gossamer on July 24th, 2016, 10:52 pm



The Founders of Syka decided that one of the worst things about their new settlement was that there was often an extreme sense of isolation. To remedy that, they decided to create a sort of Commons area for the settlers to gather. The first thing they decided was to give it a lift, putting the area up in the trees along the beach to take advantage of the breeze. Because the sun is hot and the rains in the wet season can happen in a few showers a day, its multiple purposed. First is a huge deck lofted into the trees that have common tables and chairs forming small gathering areas.

The second section of The Syka Commons is the roofed portion, smaller than the deck section but still open to the weather with only the roof for shade and to shed the rain. The roofed portion has tables and chairs, but by and large the majority of the seating is along the edge where railing has been turned into seating.

Residents often wander to the Commons to work on crafts, fix nets, gossip, weave, write, paint, or just socialize. Often extra food will be left here if someone has a bounty or has harvested too much meat (such as killing one of the jungle deer) to eat before it spoils.

Settlement festivities, parties, and smaller more personal rites of passage are hosted here. The Syka Commons are accessed by a wide wooden stairway leading up. There are, however, slide poles to exit if people want to leave fast. Someone also hollowed out a washed up log to make a long section of an actual wooden slide for children to enjoy if they want to play in the Commons. Beneath the deck there are several swings. This is not surprising since the Commons is near the Mercantile and Swing Beach.
