I take it that this is set in Indonesia?

It's an Indonesia-like country on another planet. Details of geography and history will be revealed eventually.

Rather than search for "page 86" or whatever, I'll mention it here:

Early sci-fi had inhabited planets helter-skelter, but now we recognize some conditions.

(1)A planet must have at least one moon to stabilize its axial tilt -or its wobbling will tax any life to the extreme, to the max ! What survives will be too specialized to work towards intelligence.

(2)A Jupiter-like planet is needed to corrall and herd asteroidal left-overs in that solar system lest constant asteroid smashes into the earth-like world repeatedly make it necessary for life to start all over again over & over.
Two asteroid smashes are confirmed for the early Precambrian and the dinosaurs took another asteroid very poorly indeed...So the asteroid corralling took a long time to become truly efficient.

(3) Earth is water based. If it was AMMONIA based (NH3,instead of H20 -or,rather, H804 as water exists as the tetramer,when liquid)or HYDROGEN FLOURIDE, life would again be taxed to the max. The phase equilibrium triangle of these compounds is much smaller than that of water. Even if temperature and atmosphere pressure permitted oceans to form, it would be TOO easy to swing conditions and cause all the oceans and seas to dry up and life might go extinct.
Aside from all that, the probability of such exotic substitutes for water would be,in my frank opinion,virtually nil.

I'm up to Chapter 86. Should have guessed that it was on another planet when the two moons were mentioned, but I was kinda slow on the uptake, not much sleep last night.

Well, you'll be glad to know I'm presently working on drawing page 89, so there should be more Molly Blue posted before long. I was planning to spend a lot more time on Molly this winter, but the Kim Possible "Africa" story turned out nearly twice as long as I first expected it to be.

Well, it's a very clever and entertaining story and I'm enjoying reading it.
I finished "Africa" and will be leaving a review in a day or two. Are you planning to add more ilustrations to it?
