~ sorry, you don't get the planet back ~ by 

End Game at the Cosmic Casino


Humankind’s been gambling on the Earth’s resilience for centuries. From the oceans to the forests, to the very air we breathe ~ we’ve bet it all! Now our lucky streak is winding down. The slot machine’s quit dishing out the jackpots and the bank is nearly bust. It seems the game’s about to turn. “Every gambler knows the secret to survival is knowing what to throw away and knowing what to keep,” says the song ~ but you can’t win if you throw away the planet! What happens when the Bookie wants his markers back?

(It isn’t clear how many other species in the Universe have wagered their environments and lost ~ but the sucker-bets the Earthlings placed will be the talk around the back-room at the Cosmic Casino, for Millennia.)

The Joker is from WWIT2 ~ hanratty stock
Screaming woman is from vampire in agony ~ sinned angel
Casino Master is from noiromancer ~ jade mccalla
Background (partially) from old place 0586 ~ ecathe
Face in background is from A15S
Cosmic Reaper is from Cloak 9 ~ Ailenstock
