Book: Vengeance of the Lump-Being
Prologue

Gun-Loc was a remote and primitive world. Its location at the edge of the Akuzus Sector meant that it was more than twenty thousand light years from the core systems - over six months travelling time at maximum sub-space speed. As you would expect, Gun-Loc’s great distance from anywhere important meant that it had been completely overlooked by explorers and traders. Only when Gun-Loc’s inhabitants finally invented rapid space transportation just over a century ago was it finally noticed and put on the map. And only in recent years had regular trade routes been set up.

As usual, along with the positive benefits of interplanetary trade came the negative benefits of crime and corruption. Smuggling, murder, espionage, rape, car theft, shoplifting, and name-calling had all become commonplace, and with all the competent crime fighting organisations so far away Gun-Loc was left to fend for itself. A feeling of paranoia and insecurity swept through the planet’s population.

Over many decades Gun-Loc’s leaders set in motion procedures to quash the crime wave, and they had remarkable success considering their limited resources. The leaders soon became satisfied that their world, although still suffering from annoying transgressions, was generally in good shape.


They really had no idea.
