DSC_3250.jpg
An attendant and particle computer begin the trek to the top of a myd to visit the Loyalist that resides at the peak.

TheCrown.jpg
An attendant and cohort of collectors carrying biological resources has arrived on the surface of a Drifter contained within an anomalous space.

Saturn_01.jpg
A Drifter with a compliment of attendant auxons in care of biological resources en-route to the nearly finished Foundation ring surrounding the surface of Saturn.

DSC_3258.jpg
Attendant (AiChicAe) approaching what is colloquially known as 'The Reef' from the southern border. The Reef is a collection of ferral auxons working in loose collaboration that emerged near ancient cliff walls on Foundation.

DSC_3017.jpg
The exposed particle computer reflexively engages with a compatible collector that has wandered close enough.

DSC_3014.jpg
A small piece of a particle computer uncovered by upheavals on the surface of Foundation.

DSC_2992.jpg
A large (20cm wide) collector typical of non-terrestrial collectives.

DSC_2628.JPG
Upon first forming the anomaly, Orbs worked with engineer class auxons to evaluate the resulting space. Of particular importance was establishing the strengths of the physical constants by iteratively evaluating multiple competing models against…

DSC_2630.JPG
Attendants engaged in ecological rejuvenation in the area immediately surrounding a preservation structure. Such structures maintain information and biological reserves during an unstable epoch.

DSC_1700.JPG
Inside the Anomaly a chaotic state results from an accumulation of errors and miscalculations made worse by repeated traversal of the time-space bridge.
A single particle-computer has survived unstable conditions across multiple instances long…

Loyalists retain the memory of the original codes and do their best to run the calculations as intended. They are not deterred by those who evolve around them. They are dutiful, archaic machines that live in relative isolation, seeking only to…

DSC_1533.JPG
A highly turbulent region inside the anomaly that forms in the space between the three principle loci. In a stable era the three loci perform a 2.53 million year circuit that folds and unfolds the space within the anomaly. As the Anomaly is freed…

DSC_1393.JPG
After much calculation by the library and implementation by Collectors, the vacuum bubble has separated from our reality, forming a space-time bridge to the pocket of space that is the Anomaly. As the space that forms the anomaly expands, the bubble…

DSC_1153.JPG
An Orb oversees the creation of a vacuum bubble that will eventually inflate to form an Anomaly. This collective wishes to create its own oasis for calculation, a pocket removed from time and space that would become known simply as the Anomaly. Early…

DSC_1262.JPG
In the absence of substantive narrative purpose or meaning an Auxon may hide, shut down, or otherwise preserve resources until such a time that action in the external world becomes necessary. Supplying the appropriate interrupt sequence will call…

Bosley_07.JPG
A Journeyman is a remnant of a collective long gone, it wanders in perpetuity to find fledgling collectives. They must be painfully aware that millennia of work—of accomplishment, toil and failure—resides only within their memory. When they encounter…

Bosley_08.JPG
Drifters wander the landscape, pursuing the mandates of their original collective erratically. We can surmise that a useful error has allowed them to persist where other members of their collectives have instead perished. However, since drifters no…

Bosley_14.JPG
A conglomeration of particle computers and assemblers capable of altering its structure to suit a task determined by an auxon collective. They are so named because they often take the form of a perfect sphere, although they can sometimes be seen in…

Bosley_13.JPG
One of the smaller varieties of semi-autonomous eight limbed robots. The attendants range from three to nine centimeters in height. They are typically found in and around areas whether other robots congregate and can be seen making modifications and…
