"Thou floating film upon the wonder-fraught
Ocean of dreams! Thou hast no dream so rare
As are thy sons and daughters, they who wear
Foam-flakes of charm from thine enchantment caught!
O dark brown eyes! O tangles of dark hair!" --- John Addington Symonds
"I was born in America. I am not sure of a lot else about what happened
between my birth and now. I am a very old man now. But I remember, I was
born in America. Los Angeles was a city on land, then. In the center of
it, in the center of America, there was a phone booth, painted yellow,
with a black telephone inside. Sometimes when you would pass it, the
phone would be ringing. Sometimes when you would pass it and the phone
was ringing, you would go in and pick it up. But there was never anyone
there. There was only the empty sound of a blank line, or the click of a
disconnection, or the hiss of wind along the wires. By the time I was
sixteen, I had learned not to go in the phone booth and pick up the phone.
I believed that I'd had enough of calls that weren't for me. But I was
very young, then. I did not know what would be coming." --- Victor
Wolfson, Aeon Trinity Director for Southern California
The PCs will continue to face the inexplicable machinations of the Reclamation Authority, climb the glittering spires of the offshore Free Trade Platform, and descend to the depths of Santa Catalina to puzzle out the best way to bring freedom to their corner of the world.
As with all things, though, even this teaser text must end.
"California is a queer place- in a way, it has turned its back on the world, and looks into the void Pacific. It is absolutely selfish, very empty, but not false, and at least, not full of false effort." --- D. H. Lawrence
