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.
Several other Quantum Vibe goodies are available for contributing to our campaign. More will be added during the campaign as it grows. So you'll want to stay tuned.

Exterior view of Li’s ship entering the thin atmosphere of the planet Azmodo
William (from ship): Gravity-Drive landing? Why not just ‘Pop’ down to the spaceport?
Li: Folks here consider that rude, and this place has Oresme Shields out the yin-yang.
William is gazing at the approaching rocky landscape in a monitor.
William: So you haven’t explained why these contacts of yours might help us find our target.
Li: Okay, so you’ve heard of ‘Society For Justice?’
William and Li
William: Yeah they’re some kind of bogey-man the Galactic Council has cooked up to blame their for their murders.
Li: Heh. That’s half-right. It started as a psy-op to keep the Council distracted, and to weed out the moles and idiots. Then they found it useful to blame our front group for their own shenannigans.
William and Li
William: Ah … I have two questions.
William: Who are ‘we’ in this situation?
William: And two: keep the Council distracted from what exactly?
Focus on Li, the EPCL logo appears over his shoulder.
Li: This is all confidential, understand?
Li: We call ourselves ‘El Projeto Cosmos Libre’
Li: We’re a network of free colonies scattered across 23 galaxies, operating independently but also pooling information and resources for mutual gain.
Exterior of ship approaching a domed, well, hamlet, with some likewise-domed industrial plant at the horizon.
William (from ship): ‘The Free Cosmos Project,’ eh? That sounds corny enough it just might work.
Li: I hope it does, because otherwise we are screwed.
