The Sol Stones is a collection of woks by Sarai Mannolini-Winwood, Elizabeth Baca, Jib Harper and Madeleine Dobson developed from (and still currently running) the desire to stay in touch during the CV-19 pandemic. Inspired by regular sessions using the Uncharted World mechanics it is a science-fiction space opera of three coworkers who are thrown out of their time and place and must find a way home. Each session is represented by a collection of "artefacts" collected by an author of a later period and work together to tell the collective adventures of the three women in narratively fragmented format. These are constructed by various members of the groups and supported with images taken from Creative Commons. We hope you enjoy our story-telling.

I brought this story together after a four week research contract for the Galactic Council of Scientific Exploration gave me unprecedented access to their files, both personal and corporate.

Artefact 1: Collection, 14 WC, 3020AD, Moon, Sol

Note: This collection was found in one of the later searches of the archives after finding personal logs of Cal, Sunday and Iggie. We deliberately searched for evidence of their acceptance of the survey job for the GCSE on Europa. We found instead records from those involved in the job application process, including brief psychiatric and photographic records.

Artefact 3: A folk tale from Europa

One of the more esoteric items we found when researching the Europa incident was this folk story that was popular amongst the Mooners, but there is no clear origin of the story or why it would even apply to Europa.

 

Long ago a great act of magic or science occurred on the original surface of Europa. No one knows what occurred to those who created this act, but left behind in its place was a fragile creation, an essence of energy. These ancient creators made light a living being.
