A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
Several other Quantum Vibe goodies are available for contributing to our campaign. More will be added during the campaign as it grows. So you'll want to stay tuned.

I made a ton of sketches, both on the computer and various drawing pads. These were nearly all discarded but a few general concepts did find their way into the final strip.
The ‘celtic fantasy’ aspect of l-5 City was an early theme, as reflected in the ‘faerie’ character. The ‘Space-monkey’ eventually moved to the Asteroid Belt and became the more gorilla-like ‘Beltapes,’ and I never did find a place for the ‘neo-Dolphins.’ A pity, really. Perhaps some will show up in a future story.
‘Dayate Veraaha’ was an early name for ‘Muc Ar Foluain.’
Mars was not always called ‘huoxing,’ but it did always have lots of robots. This is owing to the way it was colonized, with robots arriving first and preparing colonies for humans to come later.
The Colonists were not originally Asians, until it occurred to me that Asians of various ethnicities comprise half the human race and therefore should be better-represented. So I gave them Mars. I hope they appreciate it.
If anyone recognizes the robot kitty please don’t mention my unsavory past in cartoon pornography.
