Dune - A Different view

Recommended Posts

This is based on Dune, with the same plot - but I've changed it a little - You'll get the idea. It's not going to be finished for some time, so be patient. Oh, and it's broadly based on the film storyboard, because it's shorter.

Arrakis. There's a lot of sand there. Some rocks as well. But what interests most about this desert planet is the spice melange. The spice is quite useful. It can allow prescience, a view of the future, it is used in the manufacture of much organic technology, and it can extend a human's life. But there is a little problem in getting at the spice. The existence of worms which live in the sand and are large enough to consume even the greatest of vehicles, whole, and which defend the spice sands with a vengeance, complicates matters slightly. This desert world that is known as Dune is inhabited only by a scruffy people called the Fremen. They live in caves, and are very superstitious. They cling to survival desperately, even though they could move to a much nicer planet if they paid a small amount of spice, a resource freely available to those so used to the ways of the desert and the worms. But they believe the worms are gods, and no-one has bothered to tell them otherwise, so they stay.

The story, such as it is, begins on a wet, cloudy, planet called Caladan. At the moment, in Castle Caladan, the Duke Leto Atreides is considering his move to Arrakis. The Padishah Emperor, Shaddam IV has decided that Leto should mine spice for him on Arrakis, instead of the current rulers of that planet, House Harkonnen, Leto suspects a trap, and so to avoid it, he has built up a large and powerful army in case of attack. In another room, Paul Atreides, his son, is studying a small object with a picture of part of the galaxy. Most of which is black. He hears footsteps coming to the door, which he looks at in a mirror.
