Status updating…Time and Space breached…Data leak detected…
The archives of The Numbered Entity Project have opened in this membrane of existence for the very first time. Inside the, at once both infinitesimal and infinity-spanning, data stores wait the tale of rogues, outcasts and 'others.' Those whose time was numbered but refused to 'know their place.' Those who tried, for better or worse, to change their respective worlds of swords and magic, steam and musket, or nanotechnology. The Project records all, in tribute to Time and Space.
To this end, we have two more tales.
The first, a fairy-tale of machines and magic. The Machinist-Sorcerer War had left the world a wasteland of ash and orphans. Yuan struggles to come of age in a land built upon broken childhoods. When invited to perform her own brand of magic for the Queen of nearby Mirror City, Yuan jumps at the chance to leave behind the small mindedness of her village. But a terrible secret lurk behind the façade of Mirror's City's beauty.
The second story is quite different, something lighter. Randal, failed space trader and pilot of the cargo juggernaut Spice, finds himself, after a few tequilas too many, stranded at the arse end of the galaxy. In order to fund passage back to viable trade routes he has to make that one elusive sale. Problem is the only trading station within any reachable distance happens to be a moon inhabited by a half-loony 'Teaching Earthling as a Second Language' teacher and utterly, unfathomable natives. Suffice to say, things don't look good…
