I should really explain my own hyper-realms sometimes.  I once started 
to do that, with a story I eventually called "Hypernauts". 
(http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2008/fantasywar.htm)  But this was 
before I conceived of Hypergaard (important to Powernaut stories, and 
therefore retroactively to the whole continuum).  So I may need to 
continue that story.

... See?  We may not see the Pick-Up Team again.  (I, of course, am lazy 
and so I reuse every character I possibly can.)  But you've got plans 
for the whole world.  Sequel!
