改变 Gǎibiàn / Some Reflections from Mr Star
« on: November 24, 2019, 03:04:40 PM »
As the eclectic group proceeded along the long corridor, a jostling throng approached and proceeded them from an array of mirrors. 'Star' instinctively sited himself inside the small phalanx of his companions, wary lest anyone notice that his reflection wasn't anywhere amongst their myriad doubles. Willing their progress to speed along, his eyes widened... 'He' was here!.. a brief look of surprise flashed into the face of his master who had suddenly joined Star's companions.
It had been stupid to come here, inevitable that He would be present! Star's eyes nervously flicked across the sea of faces as his senses reeled, fighting his reluctance to gaze on the gloating face of his tormentor as he trying to work out just which image showed the physical location of 'Him'. There he was! The sneering, assured visage with the confident air, or was it? Nearby an angry face, near twin to Star's, stared with murderous gaze...or the other which laughing silent mirth..Star was bewildered, unused to seeing his own features or even those of Him, now dozens...No! Hundreds!..an infinity of faces confronted him, one stared pityingly, another stifled a yawn of indifference, another, his true self perhaps, screamed in mute terror. Although seemingly trapped in the same instant no two where alike and, somehow Star knew, none where the same person.
He faltered in his progress along the enchanted corridor, and was fleetingly aware that mirrored image of the young girl at his side was looking intrigued at him. Star willed himself forwards through the sea of phantasms, brooded on what they portended.

Hell Trek / EPILOGUE
« on: June 17, 2019, 08:23:19 PM »
Epilogue.
The Rhand women decide to wait with Atlanta whilst she recovers from her injuries before continuing to a mining settlement where they will, hopefully, meet men whose proposals they accept. Atlanta turns down a proposal from Keef Proctor and Danni turns down a proposal from Vernon Stillwell.
Marty Crane and Irma Markmann become engaged.
The former crew of Freedom 16 are keen to start prospecting.
The Robinovs intend to move further inland into the mountains.
Sybil Moon makes disturbing prophecies about the crew of Canye 4.
'Billie' Band Junior makes a good recovery from radiation sickness, though he is now completely bald.


Nearly half a continent lies ahead of the adventurers who crewed Canye 4 if they decide to continue to Death Valley to scatter the ashes of Canye's uncle at the battle site of the Battle of armageddon, prior to reaching Mega-City Two and the promised inheritence.

Helltrekkers! We admire and respect you. You are following in the brave traditions of our white ancestors, the Boers who sought a life free from interference and the American pioneers who took the torch of civilization across this great continent. They too faced nature's wrath and cruel attacks from feral savages. We mean no harm to our white kin, all our kind are the master race, the true inheritors of a devastated world brought about by a Jewish conspiracy aided by their negro pawns. Cast out those parasites who cling to you, the black and the yellow man. Look for and purge the mutants amongst you.As for the so called 'uplifts'..they are merely a race of inhuman servitors bred by science to serve their masters.
All men, women and children of white race are free to pass through our glorious new town and may choose to purchase a  crossing or can elect to join our growing band as we reclaim our destiny. Do not be led like sheep to be butchered under a degenerate pipedream of so called 'equality'. Come drive towards us with your weapons lowered and a white flag and you will be welcomed. If your fellow travellers question your decision, pay them no heed. All hail the new American Empire!

Hell Trek / Block Channel 101
« on: November 01, 2018, 12:59:55 PM »
[extract from an interview with Myron Mistralle on 'Matt Matters' 04:16:98]
Mistralle: Oh, I think its unquestionable that the new block security droid program is an unqualified success, violent crime and theft are already at the lowest recorded levels for our block. In fact the Gottwrangler Android Company will be showcasing the new droids at the forthcoming Robot of the Year Show later this month and I think all of us in Matt Damon can take pride in our pioneering this technology that will benefit all honest citizens of our city.
Matt Banker [in apologetic manner] Quite...er.. What about these reports of vandalism, threats, harassment and brawling concerning the security droids.
Mistralle: Every project will have a trifling amount of teething problems that can be soon rectified by a skilled company. [leans further to camera] We will always have nay sayers, in some cases motivated by those misguidedly protecting the so-called rights of a criminal element in society.'
