Arc 1: Hazardous Pay

Nothing much is going on at the start of things... Butter gets up, sets out with her friends, whacks monsters that won't go away, gets paid and goes home. She doesn't even do this every day, but as far as the tiny colony of The Civil Speck goes, they're living comfortably.

Right up until their top client's money runs out and they start paying in barter. Discerning the nature of this new form of payment proves to be... Troublesome.

The Effulgent Torus

Life goes on on the world of Beta 4, and the team has a predicament: How the heck do they sell this shiny donut? And more importantly, does it even do anything?

Not Just Any Wall

For Buttercup, the Tomeatorium is a peaceful, if large, public library. Nobody else is quite sure what's in there, though. For all they know, only death awaits...

Putting Out Fires

With Butter caught and the fire fought, she and the gang feel like most everything's settled. There's still a few loose ends to tie, but thankfully nothing much worse than an affectionate mob...

Arc 2: The Ramshackle Heaven

Serendipity: The faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for.
Would be awful nice to be able to seek these things every now and then, but Beta-4 as a whole is used to having to make due with whatever they've got. They, after all, have no means to leave the planet, no means of production, and only just enough means to feed themselves comfortably. Soap isn't even that common!

Sometimes Serendipity makes a crash landing on your planet though, and some assembly may be required...



Layabout Buttercup

Three months later and sure enough, that miracle prediction hasn't come true. Figures, right? Might actually be welcome now- With no pay and no prospects otherwise, Butter's friends have to start thinking beyond mere money and start considering survival.

Or is it in more of a pickle? Regardless, "The Gang" (working title they promise) has finally caught up to the news that there is indeed a robot red panda in distress, and they need to help her!
