Insert Taidan Title

I was half expecting that the metro station access would be guarded by military grade turret installations but as it turns out bullets are still more expensive than thick metal bars. To get on the metro you must enter a little metal cage and present method of paying for the fare.   Looking at the […]

“English really took the flavor out of it didn’t it, Vampir just invokes much more eloquence, more royalty.” The Demon continued. Sari knew they liked to hear the sound of their own voice but she could see why, he spoke with a tone that put her shimmer to shame. “I live here too.” “Oh I […]

“Is that an order?” Whiskey pointed at the box Maeve was holding. “No it’s a delivery.” Maeve held it out in front of her. “I mean is it for a customer’s order?” “Stock it looks like. Were you expecting a customer order?” “Yes, I have been for three days now. Like I have been saying […]

Something something Taidan

It took me a few minutes to get into Hiigara’s sphere of influence, bending space within a solar system has been tested since it was invented with no obvious issues. Often the gravity well of a solar mass offsets any disruption, however the gateways between systems are kept well away from any planetary body just […]

“Do you normally walk to work like that? You’ll destroy someone’s personality.” Hank asked. “Just having a sensitive day. It’s not a permanent effect.” Sari looked but did not sound apologetic. “In most circumstances. But humans have a complex psychology, a single moment of that could irreparably damage someone’s self image.” “If their image was […]

The future is all long hallways

The city’s police department took up one of the largest buildings in the city, not including the housing Agropolises. It doubled as a civil defence base with the firepower of a capital class ship. Capable of lifting off the ground and leaving the atmosphere in the event of planetary emergency. Unlike other buildings, which had […]
