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.

In the village of Gruensk, an odd pair walk along: A lumbering giant and a normal-sized man with longish, wavy hair and a mustache. Both carrying the same bags we saw Li and William carrying on the previous page.
Giant: Why do I have to wear this ridiculous disguise, while you look so … dashing?
Mustache guy: Because the disguises work best when they conform to our actual sizes.
Mustache guy: And, I am dashing.
The pair continue walking.
Giant: You know, these holo-disguises can be seen through with the right tech.
Giant: And, our quarry likely has that.
Mustache: True ...
Another angle on the pair
Mustache: … But the locals don’t.
Mustache: This way we look like we come from maybe a few hundred klicks away rather than a few million light-years. Less likely to draw attention.
Another angle on the same scene. A pair of locals walks past, gawking a bit at the giant.
Giant: So you were saying?
Mustache: I said ‘less likely,’ not unlikely.
Mustache: But I guarantee we won’t generate the buzz our actual appearance would cause.
Two-shot of the pair
Giant: So how far to the inn?
Mustache: Pretty much the other side of town.
Mustache: But the route we’re walking gives us a good lay of the place, which may be of benefit later.
The pair approach the tavern. It is fully night now and the inn provides nearly all the illumination.
Mustache: Okay, this is the tavern.
Giant: Do we have reservations?
Mustache: I have a few, but no, I didn’t call ahead.
