Recounting the full tale of lycanthropic Sebiestor at this point would be excessive even for me.
When Nation reintroduced itself after having eaten some Jovian fortress (so there is some connection to the present topic), there was a big brouhaha. Hundreds of people got involved in yelling at one another, complaining about Revan, and doing research. The research varied, from star maps to the “original” Ancient Factions (out of deference to age): Yan Jung, Talocan, Sleeper, and Takmahl. I moved to Araz, set up… I think five planetary colonies, and began studying Takmahl relics and blueprints.
This produced an infrastructure of wetframe, viral, cybernetic, transcrannial, robotic, whathaveyou. I also spun up a bunch of research agents. It occurs to me they are still going. I should say hi. The first product was an infomorphic sheep colony. They are now all happy as can be in Shesha. I’m not sure what prompted the move. Maybe the research agents. Araz is kind of out there.
Second product was an improvement of Sebiestor by merging them with slaver hounds, e.g. lycanthropic Sebiestor. I also proposed that the Republic improve its balance of trade by selling Amarr the Sebiestor back. Although the Sanmatar is obviously on board, as are the Kru, other tribes are being persnickety - particular the Stark tribe. They are so pious about slavery.
Oh, damn, I’m a nun now, aren’t I? The Starks are lovely people.
The third product was a giant metal eating mushroom grown on the shores of Great Frozen Tekojarvi as a bioremedial solution to the toxic catastrophe of a big space box burning through the atmosphere of Caldari Prime and crashing.
To their credit, the Caldari authorities did respond to my suggestion that the metal eating mushrooms be grown on the wreck itself, though that answer was “no.” At least the lake is beautiful.
Somewhere in all of the that planetary colonies became a real pain in the ass. I discombooberated or moved most of them. I think I am down to only Caldari Prime - of course that colony is basically a giant mushroom, now (one soon to be prowled by spectral slaver hounds and partially improved Sebiestor).
It isn’t that I disagree with replacing all of humanity with a few True Slaves and a blob of goo, but there are just too many spikes for my refined tastes. The lycanthropic Sebbies at least will do just fine in that remote and otherwise bleak future.
