    This is not an opening post.

    This is not a scintillating teaser of the sort of action that awaits a character within a universe of my construction. There is no universe of my construction. There are no characters. There is no action.

    This is all because this is not a roleplaying game.

    You are not sitting in front of your computer reading this. You are not turning away in disgust at the latest pretentious claptrap Ramza has polluted your screen with. There is nothing to be disgusted by. There is no claptrap. There is nothing to read.

    This is all because this is not a roleplaying game.

    Ceci nest pas une pipe. There is no pipe. There isn't even an image. There would have to be an opening post for there to be an image there.

    "The Juwes are the men that will not be blamed for nothing." There is no Goulston Street Graffito. There isn't even text there. There would have to be an opening post for there to be text there.

    "And that's all the note says?"

    "That's all the note says."

    "Suicide?"

    "Unlikely. The angle of entry is all wrong, and there are no powder burns. Gun found on the scene was printless, hadn't been fired, and the calibre is inconsistent with the entry hole."

    "Forged note?"

    "Five analysts have confirmed it matches the victim's handwriting. We've got an expert at Columbia looking at it as well, but he's expected to come back with the same thing."

    "Nothing else?"

    "Well, the victim was found grasping this."


    "This is just a piece of paper with some scribbles on it."

    "According to people close to the victim, he thought it was something you could listen to."

    "How much sting does a guy have to drop to think scribbles are sound?"

    "Hell of a lot of sting."

    Prologue - April 19, 1963: It's All Too Much


    "Yes, sting them. And of course, the ultimate irony is that a scorpion's sting is nonlethal to humans - excepting allergies, obviously, freaking peanuts are lethal if you don't exclude allergic reactions - so its attempt at self-defense iss futile. Just like the government's attempts to weaponize lysergic acid diethylamide. Not going anywhere. But this... whatever this is. I think it's got very real potential. Just as nonlethal, but habit forming. Depravation is biologically destructive over time. Incredibly potent. What do you think?"

    "Uh huh."

    "But still, it took a fair amount of time, and he was at approximately ten times the actual threshold dose of twenty micrograms."

    "Two hundred and fifty micrograms. This was the threshold dose Dr. Hofmann anticipated based on dosage levels for other ergot alkaloids. Ergot alkaloids that would never achieve the certain special level of popularity and infamy this particular compound would reach. But still, it was only two hundred and fifty micrograms, and he had had some experience when some had seeped in under his fingernails. That was bad laboratory safety practice, but you'd be amazed at the amount of things one can discover by endangering oneself and others. It took less than an hour for him to descend into a paranoid, gibbering mess."

    "Uh huh."

    "Magnificent."

    "Sting them."

    "... Sorry, what?"

    "What do you think?"

    "What do you think about the compound?"

    "And in the intervening twenty years - to the date, I might add - the government has been looking for a way to improve its potency. Oh, sure, they claimed it was legitimate medical research, but we all know how they actually work. Claim the research is for one thing. All the while proceed to weaponize something you already know about. But the feds are too stupid to handle it on their own. It's like if you presented a scorpion to someone who had never seen it before - they get that the claws and tails are weapons, but what they don't know is that eventually it's going to-"

    "I think it's... ... ..."

    "You think it's...?"

    "Groovy."
