And then, suddenly, the HCC29 entries made like a convoy of buses, and
all turned up at once.

I confess, the original version of that reference was that it may have
been in continuity for the Superhuman World imprint, but whether it was
in continuity for the LNH was still undecided. But then I realised:
there have been LNH stories that have been explicitly in continuity with
the RACCies, even if there haven't been any that are in coninuity with
the RACCCafe. So I (metaphorically) threw up my hands and said 'Okay,
from the Legion's point of view, the duck with the gun happened...'

Not that I'm aware of. But I assume that there's almost anything in the
Looniverse unless someone says otherwise, because, well, the Looniverse is
that type of place. And it's more a question of *where* the orcs are: are
they living on some lost jungle plateu or in a pocket dimension that's
accessed through tunnels so that it looks like they're living underground?
Or have they made contact with society and living in their own inner city
neighbourhoods? I haven't properly worked out ARAK II's background - all
I know is that he's doing a masters at one of the universities in
Net.ropolis - but the bit about him having grown up in an orcan society
implies that he's a 'country boy' who's come to the city.
My concept of human/non-human/superhuman sciety in Net.ropolis is equal
parts Grant Morrison comics and Terry Pratchett's Ankh-Morpork.
