“10 Things You Might Not Know About MOON DEEDS”

1.      The Moon Deeds story starts on Earth in the year 2090.

2.      The two protagonists are 20-year-old twins, Cassidy and Torr. Cassidy is studying plant-spirit medicine, and Torr is a soldier (and a lucid dreamer).

3.      Their mother is a shaman. Currently, she practices plant-spirit medicine. Their father is a trader and merchant and has a special connection to animals.

4.      Cassidy and Torr inherited deeds to land parcels on the moon that they inherited from their Great-Aunt Sophie. There is a strange connection between Great-Aunt Sophie and the President of the World Government (Global Alliance), but it is not clear what that connection is.

5.      Prior to the start of the Moon Deeds adventure, on January 2, 2038, a strange-looking craft showed up on the landing field of Rothera Station spaceport in Antarctica. The landing party were humanoid, not so different from Earthlanders. They had a working knowledge of the Globalish language, and it had taken them some effort to prove they were from another planet—Thunder Walker, which orbits Errai in the Cepheus constellation. At that time, Antarctica was a neutral zone. Representatives from each country were sent there to meet with the aliens, who turned out to be diplomats and scientists. Several more Cephean craft arrived in Antarctica over the course of two years.

6.      By 2090, the Cephs are backing a world army on Earth and are supplying it with advanced weaponry.

7.      The only thing able to defend against the alien technology is magic.

8.      At this point in time, the moon has been colonized. There are two interstellar spaceports, and the colonies have the ability to supply their own oxygen and water by mining moon soil and lunar ice. The colonies are still dependent on Earth for food and other critical goods such as medicines.

9.      The third POV character, Ridge, is an inventor and runs one of the interstellar spaceports and the largest mine on the moon.

10.  Palmer Pickering’s inspiration for Moon Deeds was a gag gift from her brother of a deed to a land parcel on the moon. It professes to be legit, and therefore Palmer may indeed own land on the moon.

Thank you
