There are many universes, all branching out of the great torus which binds the multi-verse together. The Z-Verse is one such universe - a tiny, micro-universe, comprised of a handful of micro-galaxies and the jostling empires which make their worlds tick.
This Universe may be small, but it's got a lot of heart. If you happen to find yourself here, you might run into any number of mysteries which need solving, and the ambitious detectives determined to do just that. Or, you might make a new friend, much like yourself, in a nondescript diner by the beach. Look a little deeper into the Z-Verse and you might end up discovering something mortals-were-just-not-meant-to-know, and then live to tell the tale by candlelight (because, after all, they may be Gods and Monsters, but you've got chutzpah, and around here, that counts for a hell of a lot).
Yes, the Z-Verse is a very small place, and it has its fair share of quirks. But for the good folks of all species who are simply putting one foot in front of the other, day by day, the Z-Verse is home. If you want it enough, the Z-Verse can be your home, too.
