DeepSpaceBanner

Adventures in the grim darkness of the far future continue. Following his successful salvaging of The Emperor’s Bounty, Siegmund Schoenerberg receives a vox transmission that stands out from all the usual spam mail and advertisements. An old servant of his great grandfather’s is somehow, someway still alive, and also incredibly old. But no matter, he’s got an old relic that needs to fall into the hands of the last survivor of the Schoenerberg dynasty. A relic with coordinates to an old treasure ship Siegmund’s great grandfather investigated decades upon decades ago . . .

Mars: 10 years after the Fall. A Firewall sentinel has gone missing two weeks into an undercover mission.

Two weeks is not necessarily a red flag for the scanners and vectors until secret Firewall caches across Mars started being very carefully, cautiously, and skillfully raided.

PROX-E KING has been informed and taps several new, untested agents to track down the missing and presumed dead sentinel, reacquire their cortical stack, and stop the OpSec leak.

But Mars runs thick with blood and betrayal. The sentinel team is setting off on a path whose twists and turns they cannot begin to imagine. Mars will show them fear in a handful of dust.
