The parts about being on a mysterious afterlife ship for redemption, that I can understand. As a matter of fact, it seems rather sensible, in half-baked sort of redemption way. Obviously, people have failures, and things they wish they could change, and as such they come to a twilight zone prison ship. All perfectly reasonable!

I suppose what fascinates me about this place is the engineering of it: does the ship create water and food? Does it simply come from nowhere? How is waste disposed of? Most importantly, perhaps, why do we not all suffocate in space, with no apparent protection?

Hmm. All this musing has made me rude. My name is Kristoph. It's an absolute pleasure.

So very inquisitive.

We're on a magic prison boat in space. You haven't thought of chalking a few answers up to "magic"?

They have a library. Or so I hear.

Something to while away the endless hours in transit with. I feel lucky.

Tell me more. I'm inclined at a forty-five degree angle here, elbows on knees. I'm interested in you. What do you like to read?

I don't think any library worth its salt wouldn't have some dramatic tragedies floating around somewhere. Who knows, maybe it'll even have a new stock of dramatic tragedies you've never touched, if there really are a plethora of different worlds providing stock.

Contain your enthusiasm, dear. I wouldn't want you to have an aneurysm.

That might be a slight exaggeration in some cases... but I suppose most of the dead are likely busy with other matters.

Did a little ghost tell you that?

Hello, Kristoph! Welcome to the Barge. I would think most of those questions can be answered by magic, but you're free to ask the Admiral!

Fairly standard! Conjuration for the food and water, either banishment or incineration to dispose of the waste, and a shield to keep the air in. Potentially any mage or shaman could have set it up.

Myself personally?

Not anything, but a great deal is possible. For instance, if a shaman were to make a shield to keep air inside, he or she would do so by calling upon the air spirits, probably from the nearest world and request that they sustain the atmosphere here. They would easily be able to take care of the things you mentioned themselves, and would likely be proud to do so, from what I have heard of the general disposition of Air.

A mage, on the other hand, would need to constantly burn their own magical energy to refresh the air by conjuring fresh oxygen inside the barrier and banishing spent air. They would also have to keep all of it inside - quite the headache, but in some ways it is more reliable than the shamanic method. After all, the shield will not leave if you disrespect it, only if the mage or channeler is killed.
