The Universe, they say, began with a word, and the word was … BANG!!
And in that moment the Universe and all that it contained … Space, Time, Matter, all that would go on to become everything in Existence, was created. Then … a split second later, there was another … BANG!!
(Typical … it’s like buses isn’t it? You wait billions of years for a Big Bang to come along … and then two come at once.)
But I digress. First there was a Big Bang, which created the Universe and then a Second Big Bang that split that Universe into numerous other Universes, a Multiverse, all very similar but not exactly identical to the one either side of it.
The reason for the Second Big Bang was that a man called Rufus Cobb jumped back through time to the very beginning of Creation, carrying a piece of the original Dark Matter that had exploded and created the original Universe and the Space Time Continuum contained within it.
And now, that self same Rufus Cobb is simply trying to make his living as a private detective in the city of Londum, the capital of Albion, the centre of the Victorian Era British Empire. But needless to say, life is never simple is it?
