Good afternoon, folks! Next up on our Luminaries program, we've gone the whole nine yards and brought you the Twelfth Hour's star crimefighting team: the Interminables. That's right! Edmund Templeton is the Hour Thief, complete with hat, cape, and bitchin' sideburns (come on, ladies, you know you love 'em), and he is in the studio right now side-by-side with Dr. Istvan Czernin, better known to our hypothetical European audience as the spooky Devil's Doctor. When we make a promise, we deliver!
Now, this is no ordinary program! The two of them have graciously agreed to answer a few questions about each other - questions asked by you, our

Oh, species? Human, naturally. Or I was. Being dead seems to muddle things. The technical terminology holds that I'm a sundered spirit, which is what happens when you tear a man's soul to tiny pieces and then recombine it with something suitably awful. The Great War
This is to inform you that life as you know it has been binned. There were a lot of complaints regarding life as it had been, so it was decided that a new system be adopted, which will hopefully be pleasing to everyone. As of now, life is an RPG. There is no need to worry; this letter outlines everything you need to know.
First things first. You will not age! That does away with the whole search for everlasting youth thing. No need to bother scientists with genetic research and the like. Convenient, huh? Instead, you will gain experience points as you defeat monsters on the field, which will allow you to move up from level to lev
Wow it's been a while.
So I guess I should mention I've now published two books - The Interminables and Immortal Architects - and that they're available on bookshelves most places!
Also I've started a Patreon, like the cool people do-
-and I'm working on another book in another universe now. :D
