2023.06.10 05:42 kashmora Dust of Dreams: general introduction and reminders
Dust of Dreams is the first half of a two-volume novel, to be concluded with The Crippled God. Accordingly, if you’re looking for resolutions to various story-threads, you won’t find them. Also, do note that there is no epilogue and, structurally, Dust of Dreams does not follow the traditional arc for a novel.He's not kidding. But that's not the whole story.

2023.05.08 03:23 TennysonEStead Jump Rangers: A Game Called Conquest - Chapter Five
For the last several years, I've been developing a science-fiction universe for kids and the young at heart called "Jump Rangers." Jump Rangers is about kid space commandos fighting for humanity's survival against an empire of giant alien dinosaurs - as well as giant alien robots, and all the other giant threats that wait for us among the stars. When the Saurian Horde invaded Earth, our world had no interstellar travel of our own. The only way humanity could survive was by colonizing their vast and cavernous motherships, colonizing the worlds where they land, and spreading out amongst the stars like an infestation of bed bugs. While the grown-up refugees of Earth struggle through their ragtag, "bandages and blasters" existence and cling to the last little pieces of human civilization, a number of brave kids have taken it upon themselves to sneak aboard alien vessels and steal technology, to carry news between worlds and star systems, to fight back against the aliens, and to lead humanity into the future.submitted by TennysonEStead to JumpRangers [link] [comments]
Until now, Jump Rangers has been a tabletop roleplaying game for anyone with an active inner child and a handful of eight-sided dice. For the last year and change, I've been writing weekly supplements for that game to support my Patreon... and now, I've decided to use that time and support to write up a young readers novel. The first ten chapters, at least, I plan to publish for free to help people find their way into the universe. If you'd like to find out what else is going on in the Jump Rangers Universe, here's my landing page: https://www.patreon.com/posts/click-here-for-34534795

JUMP RANGERS: A GAME CALLED CONQUEST
WRITER: Tennyson E. Stead
© 2023 Tennyson E. Stead, All Rights Reserved.
Way back in the old days of the Jump Rangers, human people didn’t have all that many places of their own. Colonies were few and far between, and all of them were struggling. People needed better places to live.
Pick and Rookie were the first Jump Rangers. Technically, both of them were Regulars. Much as they both had skills as rangers, and much as they develop the core of Regular ranger training, Rookie was always an explorer. By the time Pick retired, the rangers were starting to pop. Rookie was starting to think about what was going to happen to the rangers past their 18th birthday. Being old and slow doesn’t do you any favors on a jump, so rangers hang up the jumpsuit on the day of their 18th birthday.
To make sure someone wasout there finding places for people to build new colonies, Rookie developed a training program for explorers. The Exo Corps was born. Just a few years later, one of the rangers Rookie had trained - a ranger by the name of Lieutenant Major Hardhead, I think - found a big, huge planet with tons of room and tons of natural resources. Saurians had already started stripping out the planet and building cities, the planet was already starting to show signs of collapse, but this planet didn’t have any stupid, aggressive, intelligent life forms of its own. Nobody had been destroying things before the Saurians got there, so the planet was holding up a little better than Earth did when the Saurians invaded.
In spite of the industrial might brought down by the Saurian Horde, fresh water was still flowing in parts of the world. Greenery survived, here and there. What’s more, the planet had plenty of precious metals and minerals to offer. Why do you think the Saurians were there? Parts of this world were still untouched by industry.
Of course, it was only a matter of time until the Saurians ruined things… but that was time we could use to give human colonies a chance to thrive. Finishing his exploring and prospecting, Hardhead named the planet “Frontier” and started helping human refugees move there to settle. When Rookie finally retired, he founded a colony on Planet Frontier and started helping people build.
Nobody could have guessed what would happen next.
First contact with the Lume. That’s what happened next.
Just fourteen years after the jump where Hardhead discovered Planet Frontier, massive, gleaming Lume motherships descended from the sky. For the first time, humans watched in astonishment and terror as the towering jotun robots marched into battle against the Saurian rexors. Before that day, humans had fooled ourselves into believing that we were at war against the Saurians. War? Hardly!
No. Undersaurs were trying their best to exterminate us. Rexors were trying their best to avoid us. Far from being a worthy enemy for the rexors, we were the pests of the Saurian Empire.
Over the last hundred and fifty years, war between the Saurians and the Lume has burned this world clean of life. Battle lines have been drawn and redrawn, turning mountains into glass as they get pushed across the planet’s surface. Undersaurs have hunted human colonies all the while. For the colonists of Planet Link, staying alive meant staying on the move.
Why do we call it “Planet Link?” Link was the only planet where you could get off a Saurian mothership and board a Lume one. Once people started finding ways onto Lume motherships, Frontier became the link between Saurian space and Lume space.
Two brothers, both of them Jump Rangers once upon a time, started changing things for colonies like Planet Link about twenty years ago. Admiral Ardin Paksis, a former Fight Ranger, has led the human colony on Planet Battleground to victory against the Saurian Horde. Driven off by the colonists at Fort Paksis, the Saurian House that was running mining operations on Planet Battleground has left the planet and the colonists alone. With the help of some rebel undersaurs and a stolen Saurian mothership, Paksis has been fighting alongside some of the other colonies. Word had it, he was trying to build a human mothership. A spacecraft carrier. He’d already built it, but we didn’t know that at the time.
His brother, Commander Sudro Paksis, came up through the Xeno Corps. When he aged out of the rangers, Sudro Paksis started making plans to build a base on Planet Link deep enough to be safe from the collateral damage of the Saurian Lume War, and well-hidden enough to keep away the undersaur extermination teams. Until Paksis showed up, colonists here were too busy fighting to survive to even think about the future. With his help, they dug into the ground and built Paksis Base.
Since then, Paksis Base has grown so big that it supports actual hangar bays. Pilots fly in and out through cave systems. Scouts survey the front lines constantly, learning from Saurian and Lume warfare. Salvage teams from Paksis Base raid battlefields for any alien tech we can get. To and fro, people are moving information and tech between Planet Link and every corner of the colonies. Despite the dangers and the constant struggle, Paksis Base has become one of the biggest and best examples of what a human colony can be.
Once upon a time, Saurian cities were growing steadily all over the surface of Link. Now, the Saurians have fortified their operations in a place we call Blister City. If someone stuck a big, huge straw into a massive pit of tar and then blew as hard as they could, so the black, greasy bubbles piled up one on top of the other, you’d get something that looked a little like Saurian architecture. Drop a handful of antennas and spare parts on the tar so it sticks straight up, and you get Blister City.
Most of the time, the air quality in Saurian cities is so gross that only undersaurs are allowed to breathe it. Inside the actual buildings, purified air gets pumped in for the rexors... but filling the air tanks of all the motherships docked at any given Saurian spaceport would put a lot of pressure on those filters, so they pump in air from outside the city using huge, long underground air ducts that have been tunneled underground. On one end of these ducts, you have the huge, segmented hoses that connect to the mothership itself. On the other end, well outside the city, you have huge turbines with facilities built up around them. “Air cans,” we call them.
Getting on and off a Saurian mothership is easy enough, if you can stay clear of the exterminators and get through the turbine without letting them catch you. Sneaking Melinda into the trash airlock through a service hatch, we hustled her into an undersaur maintenance area. Through the vent and into the air ducts, we crawled our way out of the Vitriol and winched ourselves down the huge, flexible conduits that connect the mothership to the air tunnel. On the spaceport side of the underground tunnel, there’s a turbine and some chemical treatments you need to get through… but it’s a whole lot better than dealing with a whole city of undersaurs, primed for war.
Through the air treatment center, you’ve got miles and miles of walking against some very strong winds. Stopping to eat and sleep, we made the trip in two days. Reaching the air can, I dogged the turbine and shut it down without any blap. Climbing out, the Sarge gave us the all-clear once the undersaur patrols had come and gone. Soon enough, the three of us were on our way across the blasted, blackened surface of Link.
Here and there, hidden in caves and such, the scouts and soldiers of Paksis Base keep safe houses where you can hole up and wait for transport to the colony. Every few days, they send a Hermes with an escort of Hercs to pick up anyone who’s headed their way, drop people off who are headed for the air cans, and to resupply the safe house. If you know what you’re doing, getting into Paksis Base isn’t that big a deal.
Waiting for about three days, eating ration packs that were left behind for people just like us, we caught the next transport to Paksis Base. Checking in with the command center, we let Commander Paksis know we were jumping through. Checking on the quartermaster, we got Melinda Nova settled into a room for the night. Once all that was taken care of, the Sarge and I did what every ranger does at Paksis Base.
Not long after Paksis Base was founded, an ex-ranger named Slappy - Uncle Slappy, we call him - convinced the Commander to let him build a kitchen, a lunch counter, and some bunks for any Jump Rangers who need a grilled cheese sandwich and a place to sleep. Most of the time, rangers work on the move. Having a place of our very own, which just happens to be on one of the only planets in colony space that everyone actually visits? That’s a big deal. Uncle Slappy knew that when he built The Rooster, and it’s why he works so hard to take good care of us.
Because The Rooster is our home, and because Slappy knows what’s going on with all the rangers jumping through, you’re gonna want to stop at The Rooster and have one of Slappy’s grilled cheese sandwiches. Maybe you’ll stay an extra day, and catch up with anyrangers who might be jumping through. What I’m saying is, there’s almost always at least one jump team at Paksis Base. When the trouble starts, someone’s always there to help. If you ask me, The Rooster is one of the top reasons why Paksis Base has done so well.
Me, personally? Not once, but twice I’ve had to trick an extermination team into moving their search and sweep away from the base and all the secret entrances. Once with the Sarge. Once before I met him. If you asked me how many times a Jump Ranger wound up saving Paksis Base because they were staying at Slappy’s for an extra day? It’s a lot.
I’ll tell you something, though. I’ll bet Commander Paksis knows exactly how many times a ranger has saved Paksis Base. Keeping track of information is very much his thing.
So, that’s why the Sarge and I were telling Melinda Nova to go chat with some grown-ups, get some sleep, and do whatever she needs to do so we can hit the Rooster. Over soups and sandwiches, Uncle Slappy was telling us to watch our six o’clock.
Slappy was telling us that more than one ranger had been cornered by Admiral Paksis, the Commander’s brother, so he could offer them some kind of deal. The rumors about Admiral Paksis, it turned out, weren’t half as lost as the truth. Admiral Paksis was taking the fight to the Saurian Horde. His plan was to build up a fleet of space carriers, fighters, and gunships. With some undersaur freedom fighters, Paksis and his allied forces were planning to attack the Saurian homeworld. He wanted full support from the Jump Rangers.
Why does this mean the Sarge and I need to watch our backs? What kind of deal was Paksis offering the rangers? According to Uncle Slappy, Paksis has been building smaller, “Marathon” class starships with jump drives. Some rangers had delivered an undersaur scout ship to Fort Paksis on Planet Battleground, and his undersaur allies helped him reverse engineer the design. Admiral Paksis was giving jump ships to Jump Rangers.
Imagine. No more alien motherships. No more sneaking around. We go where we’re needed, simple as that. For the Jump Rangers, this was a game changer.
So, what did he want from us?
He wants us to help him take Sauros from the Saurian Horde. Conquering Sauros is the fastest way to save Earth. At least, that’s what he’s telling these rangers. Admiral Ardin Paksis, who used to be a Fight Ranger, is asking Jump Rangers to go to war. He’s asking us to take orders. He’s asking us to join his army.
Let me tell you something. Jump Rangers are not soldiers. Jump Rangers are warriors. Know what the difference is, between a soldier and a warrior? A soldier does what they’re trained to do. Soldiers train so they always know what needs to be done, and they never have to think about it.
A warrior does what’s in their heart. A warrior already knows what it is they need to do. Warriors train so they can do that thing well, and succeed. Warriors are always thinking. We just don’t let it slow us down.
The Jump Rangers are not an army. You don’t get to give us orders. You definitely do not, under any circumstances, ask children to go to war. You don’t try and buy us with the tools we need to do our job! Help us, or don’t. I’m good. You understand me? Just don’t play games.
Grown-ups will scoof things up, but this grown-up? Ardin Paksis? He should have known better. Fox and Ferret. That’s what the Paksis brothers were called, when they were in the rangers. Both of them were legends, even before they became big, important leaders in the colonies.
What does this even mean? Was Admiral Paksis being stupid, or power-hungry, or what? Can Commander Sudro Paksis be trusted, or is he working for his brother? What are you telling me right now, Uncle Slappy?
All he could do was rub his beard, and breathe in, and drink his coffee. To me, in that moment, he looked sad.
While I was sitting there at Uncle Slappy’s counter, second-guessing the stupidity of grown-ups under the rattle of ventilation fans and the flickering lights of Slappy’s dogged-up mess hall full of cozy, cramped little dining booths and grated metal flooring, you know what happened? My grilled cheese got cold.
