Hang-Out, the

After a long night of hunting vampires and dodging intergalactic marauders in the seedy spaceport known to some as BRC. The glowing crystals that illuminate the city begin to fade as the Day Star climbs above the mountains. It is time to rest. From high and low, everyone knows that there is no better way to chill on the playa than a cool, shaded hammock. Come ye unto the Hang Out.

The playa is a heavy load to carry, we know. There is much work to do. Inter-dimensional neverlands of sublime witchery don’t just dance themselves into existence. Someone has to stack the vibes. Someone has to wire skulls onto shit. And after a day/night/day of labors, you need to recharge. Come ye then unto the Hang Out.

The hammock is an ancient technology, simple and perfect. Tension, elevation, motion. Perfect harmony between ground and air. A dusty burrito drifting through the continuum. The crucible wherein soulmates are alloyed. A great place to take a nap. Come ye unto the Hang Out.
