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.
IGG Campaign Concludes [ Jul 6, 2021 ]
A Message From Alyss
So, we fell just a few hundred short of our goal, but that's okay, because it's a "Flexible Goal" meaning we still get the funds raised (minus Indiegogo's cut) so we can and will fulfill the promised perks.
We are grateful to all who contributed, and yes you are all now founding members of the "Free Cosmos Project," with all the privileges membership entitles you thereto. (Unless you don't want the honor, we'll respect that too.) Which for now means we'll be whipping up a spiffy little Certificate for each of you, physical versions sent out with the physical books requested, and PDF versions for the rest.
Indiegogo will disburse the funds to us soon. And we've already got the ball rolling printing books, and postcards, as well as the above-mentioned FCP certificates. And we'll be talking a bit more about the Free Cosmos Project in the coming weeks.
Diana and Lester at the table looking not conspiratorial at all.
(all soto voce)
Lester: As I mentioned, there is a secret gateway to the city's instant-transport network, where records of all uses are stored in a coded block-chain.
Diana: Wow, really? All those transits are supposed to be confidential.
Lester is holding forth his index finger.
Lester: They're supposed to be, but for safety purposes records must be kept.
Lester: If something goes wrong – someone gets misplaced, or just disappears, Deslocação Dinámico needs to track what happened.
Lester: Here, take this key.
Diana touches her finger to his, and a small glow results.
Lester: We use this back door from time to time, in secret.
Lester: We can't use what we learn from this in court, but we can learn where to look for stuff we can use. It's a real time-saver.
Diana is looking at her finger like it's brand new. Lester picks up another rib and prepares to eat it.
Lester: There's a secret address, and a temporary password that will get you in within the next 40 hours.
Lester: Don't use the company's gear. Go home and use your private node. Be discreet.
