Chimera Company, Sleeping Legion news, and Legion comms interference

Attention signed up Legionaries… I’m hearing reports that some of you are missing the Legion Bulletins that went out this week because mail servers are deciding they are spam, even with individuals who open every issue of the Bulletin. Gmail may have place the Bulletins in the ‘Promotions’ folder, even if you previously told Gmail that it belonged in the ‘Primary’ folder (which you can do in the desktop by right clicking the email in Gmail, saying it should go into Primary, and then clicking the popup at the top of the screen that says you want to do this for future emails).

Chimera Company is mobilizing

The Chimera Company artwork from Cape Town artist Vincent Sammy is coming in now and helping me the visualize the scenes as I get ready to write the last couple of issues of season 1. The portrait you seeing here is of Militia Trooper Lily Hjon, a disgraced captain busted down to the ranks and placed in a punishment company. Some say Lily holds a few grudges; most know to keep such thoughts to themselves. Lily has an all-body tattoo, but it’s not the kind of traditional ink worn by Lance Scipio and many of the characters in the books from earlier series. Hers is a viral-written bioprogram that writes itself as pigmentation directly into the skin. The color palette of her tattoos depend on the nutrients the bioprogram can extract from her diet. If you want to get in […]
