Quantum Vibe

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.

Quantum Vibe: Château Périlleux - By Scott Bieser

Not-Safe dot Kickstarter [ May 6, 2024 ]

Not Safe Comics logo

The big news this week is that Scott is preparing to launch a Kickstarter for his other comic, the very much NSFW Not-Safe.Space.

This over-sized (8.5 x 11-inch), 48 page book contains Chapter 1 of this naughty sci-fi spin-off, featuring Eithne Lamdagan, who happens to be Alyss Roaz' 7th-great granddaughter, in case you didn't know.

The story picks up roughly 2 years after QUANTUM VIBE: Assimulation left off, as Eithne and her K'Tagon boyfriend Ralff, wander through the Galaxy of the Gamer Godz, playing as the CUSH Queen, working to re-balance a real-life RPG that her travelling companion Hugo Galvez left in a bit of a mess.

Only instead of Eithne's CUSH turning people into techno-zombies, as the Godz originally intended, Eithne wants to make them techno-Succubi/Incubi, spreading what she calls an "Erogene" factor rendering them too busy making love, to make war. And of course, Eithne gets wrapped up in her work.

The campaign will start on May 14, and the link for the pre-launch page is here.

Transcript For Strip 708

Panel 1
In a booth with a long table, six men meet: Gus Mann, Rep. Hugh Stockyard, Senator Bud Ringo of Luna, across from the three 'creepers' from page 3: Julio Ortega, Stefan Robert and Henry Shoji of West Terra (GENSAXWAL).
Ortega: So, what is your impression of O'Murchadha?
Ortega: Is he a threat?

Panel 2
Stockyard, flanked by Mann and Ringo.
Stockyard: He's an arrogant prick, a real smart-ass.
Stockyard: I wouldn't mind taking him down a peg or two, but I don't think he's interested in the xenotime mines on Io.

Panel 3
Focus on Ringo, with Stockyard and Ortega in the frame.
Ringo: I agree with the latter point.
Ringo: He was close-mouthed about his business, but I got the impression the Jovian System is just a way-station for him.
Panel 4
Focus on Shoji, with Ortega and Robert
Shoji: I think I've confirmed that.
Shoji: There's a transport scheduled to depart Tros Spaceport for the Saturn System on the 15th. That only gives him four days.
Mann (OP): How do you know he's taking that transport?

Panel 5
Looking past Shoji across the table at the Lunans, who are smiling knowingly.
Shoji: Well, the transport is owned by an L-5er outfit. Damned tight-lipped.
Shoji: But the assistant dock-master is a cheez-head it wasn't hard to turn him, and get access to ships' manifests.

Panel 6
Focus on Mann.
Shoji: What of the Sun Diver girl, Oresme?
Mann: I wouldn't call her friendly to Lunar interests, no. But she seems entirely anti-political.

Panel 7
Focus on Ringo:
Ringo: You gentlemen spoke with the gynoid, Murphy.
Ringo: How likely is it that she's an agent for Huojingong? They've been nosing around Io quite a bit lately.

Panel 8
All 3 Terrans in frame. Ortega and Shoji are looking at Robert with sly grins, while Robert looks sullen.
Ortega: Well, Stefan here tried nosing around Murphy, and didn't get very far.
Shoji: I doubt very much she's anyone's agent, except O'Murchadha's.
