Home of the Buratreu

  • Linear Location

    In front of 150 Main St., Bridgeport, Nebraska, US (41°39'37"N 103°5'56"W)


It is now known that the claim to be the builders of Carhenge was without foundation, and yet because of their meaningful connections to both Cognate and False Cognate (the Urushiol were among the most famous speakers of that tongue) language groups, the power of that myth to the gwomal community is quite important. The other thing worth noting is that, like the Cnen Fi, the story of the Buratreu has become quite resonant to some people in the linear world.



Park in a safe place to read the story. Look for an old railroad roundhouse, the plaque will be on a stone in the grass.

Public Dedication

Home of the Buratreu

The Buratreu, which means “Builders of Carhenge” in the False Cognate tongue and “Lovers of Growth” in the Cognate, were one of the most materially advanced cultures anywhere in Kymaerica. They believed that a society was only healthy if it was constantly growing, building new homes and structures, creating new wealth from the natural resources, etc. As a result, they tended to use up their natural wealth within several generations, and then conquer the nation next door, leaving the old lands a kind of fallow. Their capital stood here, shaped similarly to the present-day roundhouse. It is believed that the Buratreu are now near linear Denver but will return here by the next precessional solstice.
