As the ancient Eldan proverb says: All things that are must one day cease to be. What is now shall be past later. And as we say at Eternal Vigilance Acres: Now is the time to prepare for later, with new ceremonial plots on the planet Nexus.
Naturally, everyone wants to know what happens if one doesn't make it back from their journey beyond the Fringe. Accidents happen. People age. Realists make bold yet obvious proclamations. That's why we at EVA have prepared this Funereally Asked Questions list just for you, Dominion citizen.
IF I DIE ON NEXUS IS MY SOUL LOST TO THE GODS?
Dying on Nexus poses many unique problems for the spiritually minded, and we at Eternal Vigilance Acres have anticipated them all, and cleared any sticky religious issues with the High Sentinel herself! And reset assured, as it is the lost planet of the gods, your immortal soul could not be in a safer place upon departing your physical body. If it was good enough for the Eldan, it's good enough for Dominion citizens!
WHAT IF I AM NOT CASSIAN AND MY CULTURE HAS ITS OWN DEATH RITUALS?
Ha! That is really very funny. Of course all cultures of the Dominion are part of the Vigilant Church, and may participate in the church's death rituals as a matter of course. However, Eternal Vigilance Acres recognizes that not all citizens will be comfortable with this arrangement, so we are happy to announce full support for Draken ancestor rituals, Chua disintegration chambers, and Mechari disassembly chants.
WHAT IF MY BODY CAN"T BE RECOVERED?
We at EVA have never met a body that couldn't be at least partially recovered, even if what was recovered is little more than a few isotopes and atoms. And that's all it takes to arrange a proper burial, whether your eternal rest takes place in a wooden coffin, a ceramic urn, or the cold vacuum of space.
CAN I JUST HAVE MY BODY SHIPPED BACK TO CASSUS/BEZGELOR/MIKROS/OTHER HOMEWORLD?
Of course you can! But be advised, such a prospect can be prohibitively expensive for all but the wealthiest citizens. And we at EVA would urge anyone thinking along these lines to consider this: The emperor himself has declared Nexus the new capital of the entire empire. There's no need to have your body sent anywhere else - you're already home.
I'M AN EXILE. CAN EVA HELP ME?
Yeah, that's going to be a no. Please don't write in again.
