Book 17: A Little Immortality — Part I


NARRATOR: Aboard the mercenary flagship Breath Weapon...

CDRE TAGON: Lieutenant Flinders, this is the full manifest for the Jogazle's Purse.

KATHRYN: Yup. I already have a copy, Commodore.

CDRE TAGON: I need a full work-up on each crew member. What resources do they have? Where will they go? And most importantly, where do we need to be in order to find them?

KATHRYN: We will need a lot more than just that, but yes, that's the gist of things.

CDRE TAGON: Outstanding. You're our intelligence expert. I trust you to stay on top of this.

KATHRYN:  I passed the manifest to Trevor. He's working on it now.

CDRE TAGON: Lieutenant, you are our intelligence expert.

KATHRYN: There are synth-int suites that crunch, collate, and correlate this information faster and better than I can. All they need is the list, and a quick button-push.

And I trust Trevor to push buttons.

CDRE TAGON: If all he did was push a button, what's he doing now?

TREVOR: It's a retro player-vs-narrative RPG called "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Hobbits."

You know, classic literature riding on a really twitchy button-masher.
