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.

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.
