Earth is being destroyed, to make way for a new hyperspace-Bypass
This is like the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy, except only in concept. You cannot become any of the characters from the book/radio/or telivision version. Okay? If you became one of the characters, you would have to follow that characters set path through life, which defies the purpose of an RPG.
Its an ALTERNATE HHGTHG.
There is a small planet, on the unfashionable western spiral arm of the galaxy. It is a small blue green planet, which orbits a wholly unspectactular sun, but the residents of this planet call it THE sun. The native species are infact rather dim, and they still think digital watches are a cool idea.
Kenji Teradoc, a roving reporter for the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy, was sitting in a small Islington flat. The Guide was a remarkable book, which had long replaced the Encyclopedia Galactica as the standard repository. The book itself is ill informed and fulled with all which is false or at least wildly inaccurate on nearly all subjects, but it out sells the E.G. for 2 reasons.
1) It is slightly cheaper
2)It has the words DON'T PANIC written on the cover in large friendly letters.
To cover for the bad info, the guide mantains that where they are
wrong, they are definately wrong. It is infact the universe which is the variable.
Kenji was worried. He could finally leave Earth, which was good, but the Earth was going to be destroyed, which was bad.
After drinking an awful lot of vodka, Kenji decided to go visit someone and tell them the news.
People who call me 'paranoid' are probably in on the plot.
