Arrival To The Port Of Riches
Why hello there friends, family  and watchers! I have a gift for you all.

My project just turned eleven years old today, and I feel that it is time I commemorate the project with a redone view of my planet.

Keosteyon, the setting and home world of the majority of Pulse of the Universe, hasn't changed since I made it's last map iteration back in 2007 or 2008.
The planet won't change again. I've become too familiar with it. ;)

Now, many of you might be wondering why and how I came up with the username The Port Of Riches.
Well, you can thank my heritage for that - with a little help from my story.

I mother's family comes from Puerto Rico - a small, spicy Caribbean Island just south of Hispaniola (Dominican Republic and Haiti) and Cuba. This isn't to say that it's all there is to my user name.
I invented the title because of my currently thirteen year old city project which became the basis of my story.

This city has gone through three different names since 2001 when it was first planned. The city was first name City of the Moon, then it was named The Port of Riches, and finally, finally, I settled on Amani Unus - which would lastly be translated into my new language, as Olqa-Saoka. Interesting, huh?

In part, I have soundwave3591 to thank for those changes. We are great personal friends, and he's even advised me a lot on my projects. So without further adieu, here are some links!

The software I used to render my planet is:

Interstellar Researchers by The-Port-of-Riches
Interstellar Researchers
The famed Costra class envoy ship Oroqi-Eqez stopped over a potential colony world.
Once arriving, the crew found that the mysterious Gray-skins had not only captured their drone, but had significantly advanced to the point that they were no longer hunter - gatherers, but living in the bronze age. They were revering the captured unmanned drone as a god, and had been given insight by local pirates. Regardless, the crew of the Oroqi-Eqez conducted their experiments, learned about the culture; and moved on. After traveling the Kasimir system, they found the wet world of Kasimir IV. Local wildlife hadn't advanced past cat-like creatures and their prey, so the crew set up a research base in orbit, and now prepares to head home.

Under Way by The-Port-of-Riches
Under Way
The envoy ship Oroqi-Eqez leaving the Siqiwima star system, where she was built and maintained for her deep space mission.
After months of training and studying what they knew of the primitive gray-skins, the crew of the Oroqi-Eqez left home. Over twelve scientists and fifty troops - designated for the ship's protection against celestial pirates and marauding Atlantean privateers - left home for the five month deployment.

Manned Deep Space Exploration by The-Port-of-Riches
Manned Deep Space Exploration
The famous envoy ship Oroqi-Eqez orbiting home, as she prepares to head out on a deep space mission.
The stated goal of Olqa-Saoka, and her alliance the Interstellar Covenanted States, is to study primitive life forms for advancement, or find new intelligent colonies to trade with.
Recently, commander Tolzap, one of Olqa-Saoka's best military minds, sent an unmanned probe light years away from home to explore a distant terrestrial planet. His findings were conclusive: Life has indeed been found on that distant world, dubbed Kasimir III, after it's star system. As part of her expedition, the crew of the Oroqi-Eqez is to find out more about this life, but not interfere in it's development.

  • Mood: Cheerful
Sorry, all. I've been absent as of late because I'm busy working on my novel. Once I complete the first part of three, which, god willing, is done by Friday, I'll celebrate by uploading some new artwork! Wish me luck!

The-Port-of-Riches
Isaac Thomas Riley
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.

I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)

For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.

College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.

In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.

I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.

My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.

But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.

So I leave you, my friend, with this. What's in a name?
I = Innovative
S = Smart
A = Accepting
A = Accomplished
C = Caring

T = Talkative
H = Hopeful
O = Outspoken
M = Musician
A = Able
S = Safe

R = Respectful
I = Impressive
L = Loving
E = Explorer
Y = Youthful
