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.
As Diana and co emerge from the hearing room, Bok slides up to question them.
Bok: Senhora Roaz, do you feel the 25,000 Moebit judgment against you was fair?
Alyss: I … well, I think it was a bit excessive but the Arbiters did make a good point about the preferability of peaceful resolutions.
Diana: I will be paying Alyss' debt, out of my award money.
Everyone looks at Diana in shock
Alyss: What? No! That award could set you up for centuries!
Diana: It's only fair, Alyss. I fell into that trap through my own stupidity, and I'm beyond grateful that you came to my rescue the way you did.
Now Bok approaches de Castries and co as they exit the room.
Bok: Senhor de Castries, do you feel the Arbiters' judgments were fair? Will you respond to the allegation you were planning to aid an armed invasion?
De Castries: Fuck off, guttersnipe!
Back to Bok full-panel, in his studio as before.
Bok: Four days after that verdict, de Castries and many of the principals in that contest left the city for parts unknown.
Bok: The venerable Smith & Holder Assurance Agency was dissolved, but some of the staff joined with Sergio Cooper to form a new agency, Caçador & Cooper Assurance.
Bok: Thanks for watching, and for a much more in-depth look at this story, don't forget to view the up-coming docu, 'Le Château Périllieu Mystery,' which you can pre-purchase at this link.
