Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.

Scott's home and studio were without electric power for three days after the freak winter ice/snow storm hit Texas last week. That plus needing a day to recover and recuperate has eaten up his buffer of strips and put him a week behind schedule. We regret that a one-week pause in uploads is unfortunately necessary.
Diana, still at her desk, looks contemplatively at her desktop holoscreen
Caption: Roaz said that my having 'fresh eyes' for being from the boonies would help me solve this mystery.
Caption: Maybe, but I still had a lot to learn about the subject at hand – arti-folk and their role in this culture. Time for some basic research.
Diana turns to the big wall-screen on her left, which is now activating.
Caption: Since I wasn't dealing with sensitive client data I could use the wall-screen.
Caption: It's full 3-D holo, full chroma, and gesture-sensitive.
Caption: Well, I'm impressed by it.
Looking past Diana at the full wall-screen, which is showing a search menu with the topic 'Arti-folk In Society' highlighted.
Caption: I looked for a broad overview. But not too broad.
Caption: I have a tendency to get lost in the Redes, so to speak.
The screen is filled with blocks bearing different titles: ARTI-FOLK HIGH, SOCIETY FOR ARTI-FOLK JUSTICE, ARTI-FOLK SOCIAL STRUCTURES, SOCIAL ARTI-FOLK, and OUR ARTI-FOLK FRIENDS. Diana's hand is pointing towards that last one.
Caption: I started with the basics.
