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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
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.
