Illustration Friday: Extremes
On the planet Reginald, the Klyntaan Egg Relay is the fastest growing extreme sport among a race of thrill-seekers. The event requires relay teams to compete with one another, each stealing the Klyntaan's eggs and passing them via relay as far as they can until the angry Klyntaan catches up to them. Scoring is determined by complex calculations, factoring in the distance traveled with the egg and-- as the Klyntaan always eventually catches up-- the number of team members who survive the event before being caught and devoured.
