Dark plans fall like thunderbolts.
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.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Jerome: Zytemonde? That's one of the so-called 'Venus Worlds,' isn't it?
Sargon: Venus 23, to be precise. But we were so completely isolated we didn't even know about that nomenclature.
Elric: We were told the Murphy Displacement Engine had been banned.
Jerome puts his foot in it.
Jerome: Still, as I understand it, the Venus worlds did away with market economies.
Jerome: No one has to work if they don't want to, and everyone is provided for.
Jerome: Sounds like paradise to me. Why did you leave?
Everyone at the table is looking at Jerome like he'd just grown a second head. (Except Bok, who already knows Jerome.)
Jerome: Um ….
Zander breaks the silence, and everyone except Jerome grins. Jerome just looks confused.
Zander: Because life in 'Paradise' is stupid and pointless. Not to mention, short.
