When Richard "General British" Garriott goes to space later this year, a little part of Tabula Rasa will ride with him. The mission patch he will wear on his space suit includes the triscalion symbol featured prominately in the game.
"And this small symbol that you see between the two is something called a triscalion. It's like a little yin and yang symbol but with three parts. It is one of the principle symbols of my latest game, 'Tabula Rasa'," he described. "And as Tabula Rasa has been a big part of my life here in preparation for this flight, as it's a science fiction game about traveling through space, and I'm about to take my journey into space it seemed like an appropriate piece to include in this patch."
