Excerpt from The Vulture Men of Waukegan

I'm putting the finishing touches on The Vulture Men of Waukegan's print file today so I thought I should drop a small excerpt from the book onto the blog. I've been posting a lot about Worlds Apart as that's what's caught my fancy most recently, but I'm still working on Sorcery & Super Science as well as on our OSRIC products. So, enjoy!

18. Lake County Court House
An eleven-story building fallen into ruin, the lake county court house appears to contain nothing of value. This is false for within one of the sub-basements, a dozen semi-sentient library terminals jack into a buried and unreachable database filled with all sorts of information concerning the world before the cracking of the moon. After decades of no interaction, the semi-sentient library is quite insane. Making matters worse are the temporal disruptions which have resulted in much of the database being filled with what is, effectively, Heisenbergian information.
    This means that on any particular subject, the database has information from different multiple realities. For example, if Waukegan is searched, the researcher learns that Waukegan is both on the shores of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. This information is doubly questionable considering that the library also believes that Lake Superior is in Uzbekistan as well as in North America. Regardless what subject is searched for, there is only a 2% chance of receiving actual, working information.
