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.
The Pillars and 'Nancy' have arrived at the other side of the portal. The space is low-light. Here we just see the characters standing in front of the portal and looking around. The portal is flanked by small statues of cherubim on pedestals, as a hint of what's to come.
Enrique: Is this supposed to be the Ambassador's office?
Lorelei: Looks more like some kind of art museum.
Reversing view, Mordy appears, walking towards them from several meters away. We get a good look at the room festooned with statuettes, chandeliers, paintings with ornate frames, vases, and other decorations. Another figure can be seen in shadow behind him.
Mordy: My friends! Welcome to my ambassadorial parlor.
Cut back to view the Pillars, exchanging side-eyes while Alyss speaks for the group
Alyss: A parlor? Well, it's certainly not what I expected.
Alyss: Anyway you don't look much like a spider, so I guess …
Cutting back again, we see Mordy's 'secretary' is a tall, male, very athletic 'spyder.' We can see a bit of Alyss' head from behind in foreground right
Alyss: Ah … my mistake.
Mordy: Ah yes, this is my secretary, Miles Stacey.
