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

End Of The War [ Jun 3, 2024 ]

Today's strip wraps up Part 3 of QUANTUM VIBE: This Means War, and also wraps up the whole story.

Still, there is cover art to be done, and I should have a draft ready for next Monday's update, if not the finished art. We plan to run a crowdfunding campaign for the printed book in September. And, after that?

Afterwards we start with a new story, set almost 400 years before This Means War, as Alyss tells her grandchildren the story of how she helped establish an early colony outside the home solar system.

We will see some older characters return, and some new characters populating this story. In the weeks before I begin this new story (I haven't settled on a title for it yet,) I'll post some character designs and development art, so keep coming back.

See you soon.

Transcript For Strip 2417

Panel 1
Falstaff is delivering his newscast, Noticícias Increditável

Falstaff: … three dramatic turns of events in just one day.

Falstaff: First a failed assault on the IGC Legation, where the Pillars believed was the entry point for the so-called Libérateurs.

Panel 2
Over Falstaff’s shoulder a replay of Alyss’ ship Eva Jeanne getting destroyed.

Falstaff: Which resulted in the destruction of Alyss Roaz’ private battleship, as she led the assault.

Falstaff: Roaz has not been seen or heard from since the battle and she is presumed dead.

Panel 3
Falstaff

Falstaff: The other Pillars are tight-lipped about this shocking loss to the city’s leadership.

Falstaff: The Legation, in the meantime, has relocated to an undisclosed location, presumably to avoid future assaults.

Panel 4
Over Flagstaff’s shoulder, a shot looking outward from one of the outer spheres … the sky is reddish and a pair blurry, organge stars can be seen.

Falstaff: The next surprise was a blackout followed by … a change in the sky.

Falstaff: Scientists are theorizing that the city has been enveloped in a thick cloud of charged plasma, possibly to thwart the Libérateaurs.

Panel 5
Footage of Polyphemus kicking ass near the Schildhaus

Falstaff: Moments later, a new, powerful battleship has appeared, defending the Schildhaus ...

Falstaff: … the no-longer secret location of the city’s Oresme and Miyagi shield generators.

Panel 6
Now just Falstaff

Falstaff: But despite these surprises, the Libérateurs continue making advances through the city’s spheres.

Falstaff: Eventually, even the SchildHaus will fall.

Falstaff: Will the Pillars finally negotiate an end to the fighting, or will new leaders emerge to solve this crisis?
