Lifestyles of the Rich and Interstellar


Pictured above are two attendants to the Starlight Fantastique's diamond (naturally) anniversary gala in the Fortuna system. Lamorak Uldra, Smaragdine synthasthete (his "Nostalgia for A Love Affair Whose Ending Neither Really Wanted version 2.5" was downloaded over 12 million times legally) and notorious recluse kept his face hidden in simulated shadow but actually showed up in the real rather than sending a simulation. He was dressed in a phoenix fur cape, an iridescent, ultra-fine "scale mail" over spider silk tunic (Arachne, 1800 cred), and an individually sculpted Smaragdine psi-net interface.

Uldra was escorted by his hyehoon bodyguard, Rukh Ysola Ahawi. Rukh was dressed in a vintage nano-tubule strengthened, liquid leather jumpsuit (Kokrum, 2500 cred) able to go from the club to the combat zone--and look stylish in both places. She accessorized her outfit with a chrome-finish particle pistol (Nova Heat, please inquire for price).

If you have to ask the price you can't afford it!

A liquid leather jumpsuit. I gotta get me one of those.

@Tim - Maybe Ivy will get so an outfit for Christmas.

I for one am glad that Glam lives on!

It may never die.

I really enjoy your Strange Stars setting. Which ruleset do you use? I've read back through some of the posts, but didn't see it mentioned.

Trey said...

@Leo -I've written it for Stars Without Number, for the most part, but I could see myself playing it in several different systems, really.

When I read this I heard the entire text in Robin Leach's voice. :)

Trey said...

I think that's appropriate.

I think you meant Robon Leach.

THIS IS THE SPACE-FUTURE, PEOPLE.
