Cardinal Mosque

L2 sub8

Version of location
Layer 2

The cardinal mosque is the second-layer representation of the location in Submachine 8: The Plan.


This location consists of a kind of mosque or church with Arabic design. It is unknown if the zone was used for religious purposes. In the upper part, there is a white stone structure resembling an igloo or a dome. The background contains a landscape showing a big white star in the left illuminating a cloudy atmosphere which disperses the star's light creating an orange colored sky. In the right, the orange color disappears revealing some less bright stars shining over a black void.

There is also a beamer that opens access to the cog trees.

The interior rooms contain a white floor and walls, decorated with a repeating pattern of symbols. The interior part is an archway, whose columns separate the scenes. There are two rooms above the extremes of the archway, that consist of hemispherical domes in the center of which there are pedestals representing a compass rose.

There is a ring post in this room that has a link with another in the same position of the third layer: when this post is moved, the other post moves correspondingly.

Below the floor, there is a room, accessible only through other layers, whose walls are chipped and broken, and where the blue pyramid is found inside a black stone box. There is a square in the floor of the room above it, indicated that there may have been a ladder or some form of link between the two rooms. This is also shown in the ceiling of the room underneath, which contains a blocked-off opening.
