From Undercore to ... ?

Undercore is gone. Maybe for good. It's unclear whether the dimensional rift that winked my world out of existence was caused by a black hole. If it was - there won't be any going back.

Shame about the Sapp family. Carolyn lost her husband, invested everything she had into his memorial, and then... like I said. Gone.

I just hope she made it out.

The headquarters of the Blue Sky Mining Company are gone too, but that wasn't their only operation. Companies like that always get compared to the mythical Hydra - "cut of one head and two more grow back." Maybe I shouldn't judge. Heck, maybe I should track them down and ask for a job. Getting off world was expensive.

Not sure anyone will see this, or where I'll eventually land. I've been thinking of living low-tech for a while, maybe someplace fueled more by magic than science. Maybe. In the meantime, I've arranged to have communications forwarded, at least until I find a place to settle.

Wish me luck.
