“The Saga of Dr. Dark”(24) 11/18-19/2017
It has been 6 months since his disinterment from his low temperature stasis on his submarine. He is now fully up to speed even to his ester while contacts across the globe both criminal and in areas of science and academia too. He marveled at the developments thus and made good use of them. He set up a brain trust of computer geeks, money launderers, hackers and others to have his own global syndicate to funnel massive funds for his real operations—-to at least gain a continent to use. First things first, a country so he has been shopping around. Nuevo Germania is a possible, but they are not internally weak. Xuán Peru is truly mysterious. He visited the “hermit empire” in their long time trade city of Xuax and elicited some fascinating possibilities, but they had him cold. They knew who he was and more importantly, what he is and said in no uncertain terms to back off. They will trade, but on their terms. He could do nothing but accede to their demands….for now anyway. The Japanese Empire was much the same way, only they were interested in expanding their market value and would listen to proposals on it.
Africa there were some possibles though the Lygerians were strange—-stranger even than the Sino-Peruvians. But they too would trade. He wonders about their silver eyes. He could feel energies of a more esoteric nature in that place. Never invaded, mostly, but never conquered and yet they have not had any imperial forays either. As far as anybody knows they have been there forever. They, like Ukraine, love spiders. More so than the Ukrainians because he saw plenty of tell-tails of them being around but out-of-sight. Big ones. He will to investigate further. Only Now the real “hermit kingdom” is Wakanda. Wouldn’t give him the time of day. Resisted any and all business propositions from him.
His biggest breakthrough was when he met vampires who want his help.
