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, Lorelei, Dong and his two nieces confer over tea and cakes in Lorelei's parlor. Diana and Lorelei have seated themselves on a sofa that had extruded up out of the floor behind them.
Lorelei: You should visit Sr. Gómez as soon as possible.
Lorelei: But you should not go alone.
Dong: I humbly offer you the personal protective services of my two nieces.
Diana looks across the table at the two nieces. Areum is her usual reserved self; Wook is still making goo-goo eyes back at Diana.
Dong (OP): They are both highly skilled.
Diana: No doubt they are, but I'm not sure if I can afford your fees.
Wook: Oh, you don't have to pay me.
Everyone looks askance at Wook, who is now blushing and trying to recover from her faux pas.
Dong: Wook! You should not dis-value your services.
Wook: I … I mean … I thought Senhora deClayre was paying -?
Lorelei: Er, not that I would mind, but ...
Dong adminishes Wook as Areum tries to pretend she's not there. Wook's head is bowed.
Dong: This culture discourages allowing someone else to pay for your personal protection.
Dong: This is wise, for such a practice creates muddled loyalties.
Dong: I am sure we can come to an arrangement with Diana, directly.
Wook: Yes, Uncle.
