|There is no Planet B|
We struggled for a while because we had two themes, but really needed one foundation for Obelisk Seven.
But try as we might we could not link these two themes into one unified whole.
So we spent many days doing some brainstorming.
|Tardigrade or Water Bear|
And, naturally, with three themes, we found that we could not work with only two lead characters – we ended up with one for each theme: Nick for the global warming challenge; Gliffy for the singing obelisk quest; and Kate for the search for the new microbe that was eating carbon in oil and coal deposits.
Three themes, three characters, and one story.
