The Transcript For This Page
Pilgrim continues his lecture.
Pilgrim: Speaking of which, on Vesta the Continental is toilet paper ... just like on Earth.
SFX: [polite chuckling]
Looking at a small group (5 to 8) of people in the audience, most of them pulling some printed matter out of identical manilla envelopes.
Pilgrim (OP): Gold is the most common currency, but in your arrival packets you'll find a list of currencies and their Continental exchange rate.
Pilgrim: Be advised that those rates can change daily.
Looking over the shoulder of one of the audience members at some of the printed material. On the top visible sheet of paper is an image of a mining operation on Vesta, an aerial view of some buildings that look like quonset huts with roundy ends, around a large pit in which various large machines are tearing up rock and processing ore.
Pilgrim (OP): Vesta has a mining-based economy. Primarily carbonado -- or black diamond -- and orthopyroxene, a magnesium-rich ore.
Pilgrim (OP): Everything else here supports that industry.
In the middle-ground, Pilgrim stands at the dais. In the foreground right, we see a hand being raised from the audience.
Pilgrim: You can find more info on the Tanglepedia. Any questions?
Hand: Uh -- Mr. Bone-er?
