Overview
Impulse the settlement, was build upon a series of underground networks; a move made to ease the construction, of the facilities which would later be known as the I.R.D.

Around just 10% of this space is actually inhabited on a daily bases though-

What’s to be found in the other 90 are; dizzying series of pipes, far-gone structures of the past, wires, and a source of lighting… if you’re lucky.

It is quite possible to get lost, within these seemingly endless voids of darkness, as such not many are permitted entrance. The task of fixing/monitoring the network of pipes is usually left to high ranking members of the I.R.D.

In the above, Mik can be seen preforming (filling-in for a peer) a weekly check, on parts of the network deemed as “high usage”.

Breakdown
img
Light source
One of the sparsely placed light sources. (...Done on purpose, as not to aid any unwelcomed visitors.)
img
Enki artery
A type of pipe used to move large quantities of enki. Along it can be seen a series of emergency releases whose purpose is to transfer excess enki into light. (...the security risk this poses, was not lost to those tasked with construction. The sections of pipe in-between, can be “let go” to produce a violent release of enki. The pipe as a whole can function with nonconsecutive missing sections.)

A lot of pipes
Not all pipes down here are equal, some are used for storage, and some aren't even real.
