Greetings and salutations!
Hope you are all well.
I’ve recently been hard at work putting together the material for a new compilation of…stuff.
Also finished a little story I’d been tinkering with. Now on to editing a story about wizards so that I can finish the last portion of the tale.
This post is a taster of the material that will be in the new release.
(it’s unedited, and only part of it is in this post; don’t want to give the game away before we’ve barely begun, eh?)
It hails alllllll the way from 2010!
Yes, that’s right, 4 years ago.

Study Type: Psychological screening
Item Specific Codename: OUROBOROS
Greetings and salutations from the Science Team! We hope that you fully enjoy the capabilities of the new model from the SN8KE series. Cutting edge bio-engineering has fused with new cyber-augmentation techniques to provide a symbiotic form of boosting brain power, without the mess and fuss of previous installations. This new model has a comprehensive and fully automatic ‘boot-up’ mode that allows it to painlessly and effortlessly integrate with the host user in the least invasive way possible: a convenient nasal spray.
The technology is relatively old in military history, but has yielded significant advances in recent times: Nano-technology. Microscopic S.M.A.R.T. (Smart Motor-powered Autonomous R.N.A. Tank) Modules flow into the bloodstream and gather at the base of the brain stem, where they then discharge their payload of protein strands and encoding sequences to build the symbiotic product, which is based around the brain stem itself, ensuring that the product is constantly able to interact with the brain and body. Once the building is completed, the S.M.A.R.T.’s (minus their modules) are excreted the next time the user sweats.
As we are sure you’re aware, there are approximately 25 of the XRGY SN8KE models currently undergoing field-testing for psychological trials. However, not all of the models are the same. Each group of five has somewhat different characteristics.
Group (a) Increases output of Noradrenaline to ensure the user is more patient, yet engaged with general tasks, whilst enhancing the user’s ability to think logically.
Group (b) Synthesizes a chemical similar to adrenaline that allows for greater control of the body by the mind, effectively allowing the body to be pushed further whilst in sync with the mind.
Group (c) Inhibits serotonin-re-uptake by a small percentage to help remove single-mindedness through relaxation, but is also partially powered through the brain’s interaction with abstraction, as opposed to logic.
Group (d) Interacts mostly with the reward pathways of the brain in a manner which enables the user to regard any task with the same level of consideration, and is partially powered by physical exercise and the endorphins which are released as a result.
Group (e) Interacts entirely with the creative tendencies, enhancing them as the user absorbs more information and strives to express themselves in art form. This model is partially powered by acts of artistic expression.
