World's Worst Day Ever: A Kurtherian Gambit Supplement


Craig Martelle - 2017
    Plausible. Scary in its simplicity. Horrible in its effect. Set in the Kurtherian Gambit Universe, this story explains how a few mistakes can have grave consequences. Unfortunately, the technology in the following short story is real. Yes, this could happen. Dammit. Who wants to really dwell on these things? This story was written by Craig Martelle, based on the original WWDE Document as authored by Jeff Morris. Otherwise, I would label this, "CrapI don't want to ever, ever, ever think about."
