    Hey buds, my concept I’m working on is as follows:

    A university funded expedition to an uninhabited planet finds ruins of something they were neither searching or prepared for, the fountain of youth. Due to an unfortunate mistranslation of the dead language littering the tomb the intrepid explorers don’t see the danger lurking in the dry fountain before it’s too late. This isn’t some fount to drink from to regain your lost youth, this is Remigius Lafontaine and he drinks from YOU.

    I’m notoriously bad at making things elevator pitch length and I have such an urge not to spoil my own story haha so this was hard enough to get out without my usual ambiguity. It’s basically about a space vampire and the look is something like Treasure Planet with less humans.

    The main character will be Samander, a salamander looking alien and one of the cooks in the expedition and as such she doesn’t have much say in the where or why things are happening, she just gets pulled along and in the end is the only “survivor” of the ensuing massacre.
