↓ Unlike, say, the Targari, the Barada faction don’t exalt their elders. Actually, any Barada caught in excess of a certain age is captured and sent to face a no-doubt undesirable fate. 1/8
2/8 One such Barada Elder managed to escape before that could happen. She’s occupied an unassuming dwarf planet for time immemorial. Despite her age, she has an impeccable memory, kept sharp through relentless mnemonic exercises and meditation. But what for?
3/8 Because she knows that one day four strange geckos, one from each faction, might arrive on her solitary planet, having heard rumors of her and the athenaeum of obscure knowledge she guards.
4/8 She will ask them what they seek. The boldest among them, likely the Barada, will growl, “Tell us about the Enigma Crystal!” Recognizing those long-lost words, she will invite them inside her tiny shack.
5/8 After scaring off the Spider-Crickets, she’ll open her vast notebooks and show the Geckos illustrations, schematics for the few thousand unique variants of Enigma Crystal. “Even the Faction which created them was unsure of their ultimate utility,” she’ll say.
6/8 “They had boundless utility”: As keys to great treasures. ✨
7/8 As status symbols for the elite. Some claimed the Crystals could even open up channels to strange dimensions -- meta verses-- allowing bizarre things to leak through.

“But there’s no way to know for sure. All the crystals are lost.”
8/8 The four Geckos will trade furtive glances. Ultimately, it’s the Martu who’ll unfurl a map lay it down flat, point to a star system in the northern quadrant and say, grinning,

“Not for much longer. We’re off to find one now. This was our last stop.” #LORE 📘

It is our view that Alpha Art, by providing royalties to holders of Piggies NFTs from the sale of other NFTs on their platform, such as Geckos, may be in violation of applicable securities laws. 1/12
As such, GGSG is not comfortable with the legal risk associated with being listed on Alpha Art as we are striving to ensure compliance with all applicable laws. This poses danger to GGSG and GGSG’s community. 2/12
NFT issuers or marketplaces claiming decentralization are not above any laws and any such projects found to be in violation of applicable securities laws may face enforcement action from the SEC - 3/12
