Build-your-own Heaven

Suppose, as a mental exercise, that Sythyry, Saza, Vae, and hCevian (with help from the rest of the crew as needful) were to build a Heaven of their own. Let's call it Altheaven. They couldn't build a whole big universe like the World Tree, but they probably could build something as big as Heaven. (Heck, even Strayway is bigger inside than Heaven.) They couldn't make up special physical laws or species for it, but there's a lot they could do...

I don't think they're going to do it. I don't think they've even thought of it. But it's the weekend, and that sometimes means polls.

Who should live in Altheaven?

Wrongfolk
4(10.8%)
Elfimel, transported from Heaven
1(2.7%)
Sythyry readers from all dimensions
3(8.1%)
Uplifted blossomaries and cats from World Tree.
3(8.1%)
All of the above -- it's the party spot of the interdimensional libertine set!
26(70.3%)

Or, other inhabitants...

Food Sources! Altheaven is obviously all about the food. How should food be supplied?

Several delicacies grow on trees
11(33.3%)
Big kitchen. Everyone takes a turn cooking.
15(45.5%)
Catered from Vheshrame restaurants by transdimensional messengers
7(21.2%)
Bring Your Own Supplies.
0(0.0%)

Or, other food source...

Special physical law: Sythyry and friends can't make something with big laws like Heaven has -- they can't tinker with the World Tree reincarnation mechanisms, or make an inexorable god like Thefefy. But they can tweak laws in one minor way, or fake it with magic items and ritual spells, especially using all those Glories. What should they do?

Clothing is invisible
0(0.0%)
Nobody gets tired

9(26.5%)
What happens in Altheaven, stays in Altheaven.
16(47.1%)

Or, other customs for Altheaven.

Sights: Well, Sythyry et al aren't going to be making 600-foot metal pyramids, but they can do some things. What should one of the more impressive sights be?

A giant, illusionary tree, decorated with many-colored candles, dancing.
2(5.7%)
Move the illusionary porno-party from Strayway to Altheaven.
5(14.3%)
A river connecting all the rooms or places in Altheaven, with cute little boats for those who are not Orren or don't feel like swimming.
26(74.3%)
A repertory theatre playing Ketherian classics
2(5.7%)

Or, other attractions

Service: This will probably take a lot of maintenance, housekeeping, etc. How should that be done?

Healoc spells -- restoring Altheaven to its pristine state each day. (Changes to decor become challenging.)
9(26.5%)
Hire a bunch of primes to do it.
5(14.7%)
Import a colony of Oompa-loompas to do it.
4(11.8%)
Construct a bunch of animated servitors to do it. Hope they stay sane.
16(47.1%)

Or, other approach

How should this project be thought of?

As a really, really bad way to waste a ton of time, money, and magic
3(8.6%)
As a way to get new forms of Doom
7(20.0%)
As an investment for interdimensional tourism
6(17.1%)
As a way to while away the decades before Oixe is ready to see Vae again

2(5.7%)
As a step towards godhood
