New Open World: Alien Artifice
Curated by Regina Paul/Natalie-Nicole Bates
Leap of Faith Publishing welcomes you to Alien Artifice.
Imagine a world where at any moment you could be taken from your bed, your car, or even your back yard and forced to participate in gruesome medical experiments. Imagine what it would be like to live in a world where no one believes you, and most people think you are either, crazy, a liar or both.
Then visualize a universe where a race of aliens called the Greys have been hassling humanity all over the galaxies since humanity's earliest origins. Sometimes people disappear forever. Where did they go?
Finally, see in your mind's eye, that the Greys have a hive mentality making it possible for them to use their group mind to create illusions, force compliance, and deceive. In this universe, some planets are aware of the Greys and have developed techniques to stop them, others having stopped them in the distant past, believe they are gone or have left the galaxies, still others are ruled by them causing cult like followings. Can you imagine the chaos all over the universe that they create?
What if someone could save you? Or maybe you're a freedom fighter on a world overrun by Greys. What if in spite of the odds against it you find love as well as safety?
Here's your opportunity to tell the hundreds of stories of abductees all over the galaxies, or maybe your character is one of the saviors and love interests of an abductee. The choice is yours!
Meet Angel Whitedove
Angel Whitedove is from Earth and an alien abductee whose parents were also abductees and who disappeared during a family abduction. Tried for their murder, Angel was acquitted due to the fact there was not enough evidence to convict her; s. After growing up in fosters homes, she moves from city to city in the hopes to keep the Greys from finding her. She is an alien abductee researcher, as well as, someone who helps other alien abductees. She lives on a trust fund left to her from her Cherokee grandparents.
Unbeknownst to her, Angel's father is from the planet Laren, thus making her a "half-breed" according to his culture and as such if her father's people ever discover her, she will be taken to Laren and immediately put to death.
Angel's story, Alien Deceptions has already been written by Regina Paul.
Meet Darek of Laren
Darek is from the planet Laren. He is also a starship commander. His people defeated the Greys in their distant past by using a form of ESP and advanced technology. They drove the Greys from Laren and believe that they are gone. One of Darek's jobs as a starship commander is enforcing his planet's non-interference laws. He goes to Earth looking Angel's father to bring him back to stand trial for breaking the non-interference law, instead he finds Angel, a half-breed marked for death simply because she was born half Larindon.
Darek's story, Alien Deceptions has already been written by Regina Paul.
