Miller's Hollow

From XPUB & Lens-Based wiki

Miller's Hollow is a village of approximately 100 inhabitants located in the rural Ohio. Most people live from the trade of phean-fluck, a kind of tall grass from which fibers are extracted and used in the textile industry. The closest city of over 10000 inhabitants is Leesburg. Miller's Hollow has tragically been popularised in the medias after a series of unresolved crimes. The village is also known for being exempted from any American justice law and is following an autonomous model based on villecracy (a voting system during village organized councils)


The landscape of Miller's Hollow is a combination of lush and barren. Nights are longer than days, so some wildlife species develop extreme moonlight vision that allows them to see the through the thickest fog that settles in at 10:30PM.

Because of the overgrowth of the phean-fluck, it is common for villagers to escape to the plains for less visual clutter.

Millians believe in werewolves.


The first traces of human life in the area of Miller's Hollow (previously Miller's Borough) belonged to the 16th century. Remains of agricultural tools were found during the construction of Mr Grimber's house (the village's hunter). Miller's Hollow was created by Daniel and Gemma Hollow, the first farmers succeeding to cultivate Phean-fluck. Due to Gemma's noble origin, the land on which she conducted her agricultural experiments was a land earn by her ancestors before the USA became a country. The decree was signed by Lord Sebastian and mention: "The land of Miller's Borrough shall never be part of another country".

Millians are known for the cultivation of phean-fluck but despite a great demand from the textile industry, has never ceded to industrialise their lands. In June 1937, the murder of Oliver Lutsbeigh followed by those of Barbara Drander and Anthony Silth in just a few days brought the attention of the medias to the small village. Four people were accused of the murder and judged according to the rules of villecracy in place at Miller's Hollow. Those four people were sentenced to death and killed immediately after judgement. Later on, it was found that two of them were werwolves and that the two others were innocent villagers (Mrs Andrea Gullborough and Mr Erik Featen).

Villecracy is a type of government that was established in 1862 by the inhabitants of Miller's Hollow. Until today, it is the only place that has adopted this constitution. Prior to the villecracy, Miller's Hollow's government was based on herotony (a government where a hero is elected and has power on all decision). After the last hero of Miller's Hollow committed suicide due to a burnout, the Millians established the villecracy's constitution. Miller's Hollow is legally not part of the USA despite the fact that the territory is located on the American land.


At Miller's Hollow, all Millians only consume plant based diet. Millians traditionally believe that good quality of water plays the crucial role in deciding the quality of the food. Millians have developed elaborative vocabulary, describing different textures in food. Some anthropologists suggested that this is because of their humid climate, affecting the crunchiness of the food.
