I’m not exactly sure why ‘Clypeus.’ I don’t quite remember. The sentiment’s real, though.
Although I dunno how well this works in real life. Assume “Super Mega-Zoom Call Activate!” exists in a world where the participants wouldn’t immediately start arguing with each other. And, sure, superpowers! Their existence wouldn’t be any less plausible, honestly.
This was a somewhat… stress-filled month for me. I’m not sure why: possibly it’s just because I am reaching the point where I may have been cooped up for too long. I think I can say that I had a mildly productive pandemic, but I’m ready for it to be done now.
With regard to ‘All That The Market Has Borne:’ look, it’s just market forces at work. You have a valuable product that can be produced by multiple sources, thus making it difficult for even a cartel to form; and the production values are both high and restrictive, so strip-mining the resource isn’t going to work. That pretty much means high wages for the specialist laborers who have the most critical role in the enterprise. Straightforward, really.

Sorry about the third-person there, but I’m trying to get my SEO all up in this thing. Anyway: I have a Patreon! Fiction! RPG material! More fiction! And it can all be yours!
Well. The access to it, at least. I still own everything.
