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.
Exterior of the Super-flyer soaring through a different sphere, this being the one where Alyss Roaz' mansion is located. Ref the final page of Venus 23.
Caption: Alyss' place was in a sphere getting quite a bit more light. It was a bustling place, full of energetic optimism.
Caption: I wasn't feeling so optimistic, though. I hoped maybe seeing Monty again would reassure me.
The flyer approaches Alyss' home.
Caption: Monty is the 'Cê-esse' of the house.
Caption: The word comes from the acronym CS, or Cérebro Sintético in Portanglish, which is one of their terms for 'Artificial Intelligence.'
Caption: Literally, Monty is the 'synthetic brain' of La Casa Roaz.
In the cabin, angled so that we can see Diana leaning towards the center console on the dash, with the a monitor screen. On the screen is an image of Monty's Python avatar.
Caption: Monty has various avatars he uses to interact with people, and other purposes.
Caption: As I anticipated, we were greeted by the Python.
Monty: Diana! As I live and breathe … well, you know what I mean.
Diana: Yeah, it's been a while. Mind if I drop in?
Cut to a room where we see Diana and Areum on a wall monitor. The Python is on a different screen. A silhouetted figure watches from the right foreground.
Monty: I see no reason why the hell not!
Monty: But who's your friend?
Diana: Oh, I'm building my own entourage, and Areum here is my first member.
Diana: What do you think?
