Quantum Vibe

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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser

Not-Safe dot Kickstarter [ May 6, 2024 ]

Not Safe Comics logo

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

Transcript For Strip 1621

Panel 1
The Dryhaven, with Causa Sui still tucked in underneath, is at station near an asteroid roughly ten times its size. We can see a force-field bubble enclosing the asteroid as well as the ships. We can see several small flashes on the bubble. The local brown-dwarf star is large enough to show a good-sized disc, but is out-shined by its sister red-dwarf 100 gigameters distant.
Hugo (from Dryhaven):You weren't exaggerating about the 'chaotic' nature of this space.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Without our re-enforced shielding, we'd soon be cut to shreds by all these high-speed micro-liths.

Panel 2
The workshop aboard Dryhaven. Hugo is fussing over a gadget resting on a worktable as Shrack, Krasp, and Murphy look on.
Hugo: Krasp, I'm sorry, but this pento-matrix slicer is still not up to the specs I require.
Krasp: That was my third attempt, Doctor. It looks right to me, and I don't know what else I can do for it.

Panel 3
Closer two-shot of Hugo and Shrack.
Hugo: This is a waste of time. I have equipment aboard my ship that will serve.
Hugo: I must return to Causa Sui immediately.
Shrack: I'm afraid I can't allow that right now.

Panel 4
Another angle that show Krasp and Murphy in the background, looking on.
Hugo: 'Can't allow it'?
Hugo: I had been under the impression that we were guests here, not captives.
Shlack: Conditions here are too hazardous for you to space-walk back to your vessel.

Panel 5
Another exterior shot of the two vessels near the asteroid. A harvester craft from the Dryhaven is at work on the asteroid's surface, cutting into the megalith. The force-field bubble surrounds all, and we see several flashes across the barrier's surface.
Shlack (from Dryhaven): Once we've completed our harvesting runs and return to the comet, it will be safe for you to disembark.
Hugo: But that will be several days from now! And this project has dependencies ...
Panel 6
Group shot of Shlack, Hugo, Krasp, Murphy. Shlack is laying down the law; Hugo and Murphy look unhappy, and Krasp looks uncomfortable.
Shlack: This discussion is over, Doctor Galvéz.
Shrack: I'm the master of this vessel and I aim to be fair and reasonable but my word is law here. Am I clear?
Hugo: As crystal … Captain.
