Barbarian Altanis: The Matmata Caverns

Matmata Caverns (5 x 15m) Geothermal caverns, also worked stone areas located under Lemur Peak.  Passage ways extend under mountain into the earth for untold miles. It was a scared burial spot for Ancient Altanian Kings. Rumor: Fabulous treasures guarded by hideous monsters are said to be here. Barbarians shun it as accursed. No expedition to enter the caverns has ever returned alive. It is guarded by undead and worse. ~ from the Gazetteer of Barbarian Altanis (published 1245CC, City State School of Ancient Knowledge press.)

The Barbarians of Lost Altanis are a vastly diverse and extremely warlike lot amongst themselves and toward nearly all outsiders and there is little they have in common. But there is one cause they are united in- the fear of and protection of their sacred burial grounds under Lemur Mountain- the dreaded Matmata Caverns. It is absolutely forbidden to venture into the Caverns to explore them and especially to raid the tombs of the dead and take anything out. It is an automatic death sentence and the greatest taboo they have.

If even the whisper of an interloping expedition reaches the ears of one their tribal shamans; a bloody vendetta involving all ten tribes will commence against any adventurers who try; culminating in no less than a rising of all the tribes and a barbarian war that will set all the southern borders of the One Realm of the Invincible Overlord aflame up to the very walls of impregnable Fortress Rhamasadron.

For this reason and with very good common sense, the Overlord has forbidden any such treasure hunting as well. If rumors of such an expedition into the Matmata Caverns should be discovered by The Black Lotus, it will result in the immediate incarceration of any adventurers who try such a blasphemous journey.

Nonetheless, rumors and whispers of the fabulous treasures lost within the caverns have tantalized gold hunting adventurers for centuries. Not even evil legends and stories of the hideous monsters living inside the caverns; or reports of countless legions of undead warriors guarding sacred shrines to Mictlantecuhtli (the Altanian Death god) inside the caverns; nor even dire warnings of deific curses of the Altanian gods upon all who dare to raid the lost burial grounds in the caverns; has ever deterred greedy adventurers from trying their hand at being the first to successfully raid and win treasures beyond all imaginings from the darkest depths of  this hideous accursed place. One fact remains. NO ONE who has ever entered the Matmata Caverns to raid the dead Kings tombs- has ever returned alive to the world of men. EVER.


“…Most infamous is cursed Lemur Mountain, in its roots are the labyrinthine Matmata Caverns; whence it is whispered forgotten Altanian tombs lay buried. The mountain is said to be home to a powerful family of Lich Kings from lost Altanian days.”~ (from Barbarian Altanis: Beyond the Border, published 1310 CC, Sages Guild of City State.)

Daily Toon: Space realtors 7. Page 14

Here it is at last! Sorry it took so long to get this out- but last week was an eventful one and I wasn't able to draw as much as i would have liked. I did try to keep up with things here too- but well you all are so prolific as to leave me always in the dust.

BUT I do believe I can project that this comic is two thirds of the way concluded and i can see wrapping up the tale in 8 pages. If i diligently draw daily- that's maybe three weeks! i know- slow out put- But I want to to do it right. If I rush it- it will look like crap.

So in that spirit of midway finishing- here is the Synopsis of the Space Realtor tale The Robot Menace as I see it so far...

Our Heros: the Kozmik Avenger and Cybercat - aka the Space Realtors - have found themselves lost in time, thanks to last issues misadventures involving the vengeful Warpigs and the friendly Space mites ( SR #6 : Spoored. See my gallery).

To get back to their home time of the 42nd century, Cybercat concludes that flying around the Earth at 10 times light speed should get them home in about 300 odd revolutions. However- thier Tachyon based space drive simply runs out of Tachyon energy mid way through their flight through time- and they find themselves stranded- in the mid twentieth century.

Spying on Earth below they discover its is the year 1942- and they know from history- that the technology to recharge the tachyon drive will not exist for another thousand years. They are stranded in this primitive century with no way home!

But wait! In a strange development- sensors indicate there IS a Tachyon energy source on the planet below. Our heros KNOW this is IMPOSSIBLE and yet it is also their only chance at recharging their drive. So the Space Realtors bail out over the energy source in an attempt to locate it and use it.

They find themselves over a place called California in the Tinseltown hills. They also discover the Tachyon energy is being used to power Killer Robots and those same robots are beating up a unusual individual- who LOOKS like a warpig.

Fighhting three killer robots, this pigman is in dire need of aid- so they help him fight and destroy these robots and he thanks them and reveals himself as Harry Hamm - a pig detective from Tinseltown. he IS NOT a WARPIG- but is something else eintirely. When asked, he tells the Space Realtors how he came to be in the hills fighting robots.

Harry Hamm is an infamous, non-human detective, whose beat is 1940s Tinseltown and being an odd person himself- Harry always ends up getting weird cases that the police won't touch. When a series of Robberies commited by Robots hits Tinseltown, Harry is tricked by Inspector Dower of the Tinseltown Police Force into following up a tip that will hopefuly lead to the culprit behind these Robot robberies.

The tip is from a blonde bombshell named Freda Fnark and from her Harry learns that her father- a mad scientist named Doctor Fredrik Fnark - has discovered a strange meteorite in the Gorgonio mountains that pulses with an ancient alien energy. The ingenius Dr. Fnark has distilled this energy to build a Robot army for his own nefarious purposes- probably to conquor the world!

Cybercat interrupts Harry Hamm's story to interject- that this meteorite IS the source of the tachyon energy and that Dr. Fnark has discovered it 1000 years ahead of his time!

Harry continues his tale to end (on this page) where he drives with Freda into the mountains to confront and somehow STOP the insane Dr. Fnark and his mechanical army of robots...

And thats where we are NOW.

************
I hope this synosis clears up any confusion you may have. This story has at least three different narratives, layering each other. Its confusing- but intricate- and I don't think that I could have told the Robot Menace any other way.

I Hope you like the story so far! I think it was a great way for Harry Hamm- my 1940s Pig Detective to meet The Space Realtors from the 42nd century. I can't wait to write and draw out the rest, so you all can read the incredible conclusion. i bet you can't guess what will happen next!

So be patient and stay tooned. I'll try to finish it all up in THREE weeks!
