Glossary Entry: Walking On

A mode of transport, developed by Swells’ Bells®, that allows wealthy Gold Card® owners to travel over short (by Multiversal standards) distances without the use of a space-going craft. Swells’ Bells® leases their Walking On Depot® to various upscale venues around and about the settled Multiverse, then offers its Gold Card®, or the card’s niche-market cousins, the Casino and Boardroom cards, to the venue’s wealthy patrons. In order to protect their exorbitant service fees, the company guards their technology fiercely, though some of their customers have found their way around the wallet-rending expense. For example, The Dome, a posh nightclub on Rec Station 97, defrays part of the tremendous cost of this service by placing their Walking On Depot® in the club’s Freebetters Room and allowing their customers to place bets on “who’ll materialize next.” Even so, it is doubtful that Walking On® will ever replace Krystal driven starships as the primary means of transportation in the galaxy, as the cost is prohibitive and the distance one can travel in a single walk is limited.
