Pyke - Yeah! *sniff*

Now I'm immediately going to start designing pogo sticks!

...nah, wait, I just saw pogo sticks are out... dang, have to go for something infinitely more scary.

Seriously though, this is such a great theme - though true originality will require some realy deeeeeeep thinking. Back to my dungeon-o-horror to figure some stuff out.

I do hope you'll stick to that - looking forward to some crits so harsh I'll need to surf with peril sensitive sunglasses on at all times.

... and I haven't even found my pencil yet. 93 days left - hope I'll find it soon enough

Pufferfish - Thanks a bunch! Looks like I'll need it. There are some fear-inducing challengers signed up this time around...

AND NOW... THE MOMENT YOU'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR (uh? eh... nah... anyways!)

The Story!

THE EXPENDABLE MINE WORKERS OF CERES IX

In 2064 deep space geologists found unexpected amounts of titanium and uranium hexaflouride in the core of several large asteroids. A conglomerate of five of the worlds largest mining corporations quickly assembled a new, out-of-this-world organization to make a good profit by excavating these rocks and bringing home the minerals which since a few decades back had been very hard to come by on earth.

The new organization was called AsteVoids, which was well chosen since the CEO had a bit of a speech impediment.

Unfortunately, as the first excavation on Ceres started, it soon became quite clear that the working conditions were quite inhuman. The mine workers died like flies on a windscreen, and the union went berzerk and threatened to kill the entire board of directors using a pair of old ice skates and piano wire. AsteVoids decided to put the project on hold until someone came up with a good idea...

Around 2070, a team of french prosthetics engineers and surgeons unknowingly provided AsteVoid with an answer as they performed several successful experiments combining death-row convicts and pneumatic mining equipment. They just did that for fun, but the AsteVoid CEO (yes, the guy with the speech impediment) quickly realized the potential of their findings.

From 2072 and onwards, AsteVoids sent heaps of convicts to the french back-alley surgeons to get them retrofitted with pneumatic drills, hydraulic lifts and so on ad nauseam - only to quickly launch them off to the nearest asteroid mining site.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - -

My concept so far is a deeply depressing portrait of two or three of these mechanically engineered mine workers on the ninth site of Ceres.

Refs to get: Anything from a morgue combined with full product sheets and blueprints from Dynapac.
