The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Now everyone is seated around the table. Eithne is between Kek and The Dude.
Dude: Ok, here's the short version:
Dude: We are what you could call 'gamers.'
Dude: We like to create scenarios with conflict and goals and play them out.
Panel 2
Show a cloud of swirling colors near Old Terra. The Dude narrates from a cameo.
Dude: About a millennium ago, as you measure time, we were scouting around for some inspiration. You know, to build a game out of.
Dude: We had already found your world previously, when your people were in what you call 'the bronze age.' But now it had just recently entered its age of space exploration.
Panel 3
A tableau framed in a 3:4 television screen of Captain Kirk seated in his chair flanked by Spock and McCoy, looking dramatic. The Dude is again in a cameo.
Dude: Monitoring transmissions, we learned about this marvelous mythological future galaxy positively festooned with different races, having various goals and conflicts.
Dude: It was like we found the mother lode of gaming ideas.

Panel 4
Show Fred, flanked by Kek and Adam.
Fred: So, we moved to this out-of-the-way galaxy, about the same size and age as yours, and set about manifesting a replica of that mythology.
Kek: Of course we had to tweak certain laws of physics here in order to make 'warp drive' and some other stuff work.
Adam: Fred and I set about creating the races, by altering some of the non-sapient animal species we found here.
Panel 5
Eithne, Kek and Fred. Kek is rolling his eyes.
Eithne: What sort of animal did you 'tweak' to make the … ah … gluteans?
Fred: My crowning achievement! I actually melded three different species to get just the effect I wanted.
Fred: I think they're hilarious, don't you?
Panel 6
Elevated view of the table, focusing on Eithne flanked by The Dude and Kek.
Eithne: So … I've spent the last several megasecs living in a simulation?
The Dude: Not a computer-rendered virtual reality, no.
Kek: It's physically real. We like to call it an 'assimulation.'
