To fund their controversial Time research, B&E Labs patented a medical process called “Prolongment”, in which very old and very wealthy clients can pay to have their consciousness extended past death.
The process of Prolongment works by projecting the client’s consciousness (called a “replica mind”) into the future, past the point of death. When time is up, the replica mind is returned to the client, filling them with new memories. Postmortem memories. Memories of the future.
B&E Labs has many enemies. Now the city is besieged with non-corporeal beings, more commonly known as ghosts. Some of these ghosts have a vengeance. B&E is under charges of corruption, and their services are seen as a threat to physical safety and the integrity of the space-time continuum.
Prolongment touches all inhabitants of the city, from a vigilante journalist to a haunting victim, from a wealthy client to a rogue scientist experimenting with her own mind. Above all, Prolongment weighs on the conscience of B&E’s CEO, Dr. Ken Muerta, whose moral code grows murkier as he struggles to hold the company together. The fate of the living, the dead, and Time itself is in his hands.
