Comprehensive Gerosha is one of many narrative universes to comprise the overall Gerosha multiverse, homeworld of The Gerosha Chronicles in Dozerfleet Comics. It is arguably an early attempt at an "ultimate universe," being to Classic Gerosha what Ultimate Marvel is to Classic Marvel. As of 2010, Gerosha and Volkonir-themed universes once again became separate entities. They had been merged in Classic Gerosha, only to be separated later. All in all, Comprehensive Gerosha sought to repair logic errors in its predecessor - while simplifying Gerosha mythos and making it more coherent. The reasoning was that in 2007 - 2009, it became too bloated and tried to do too much bending over to make Volkonir-related properties fit.
Even though it's called "Comprehensive" Gerosha, a more accurate description of Earth-G6 would have been "More-Comprehensible Gerosha." Other than expanding on the Gerosha Legends and adding Sorbet to the overall collection, Comprehensive Gerosha did little to change most of the Gerosha franchises in existence that were not also Volkonir-related. An exception was Ciem: Vigilante Centipede, which got a near-complete plot overhaul from the Ciem webcomic that preceded it. Following the discovery of the real-life Gerosha Stone in 2008, Classic Gerosha was retconned so that Stan and Shalia named their new city after it when rebuilding Boonville. This makes Comprehensive Gerosha the first continuity in which the Gerosha Stone has always been canon.
At some point in the past, the Marlquaan was put in place by God in the event of a event that would happen near the end of time. However, the risk it posed was that it would find ways to invariably be used before its intended purpose.
That happened when a man named Zeras Carpathius was first struck by it and became the first Marlquaanite. This happened because he was fleeing for his life from Roman authorities after he avenged the murder of his wife Catalina Carpathius at the hands of a sadist named Markus Mortikus. He began calling himself "Lord Zeras," and used his new-found powers to invent Zeran wardrobes and Zeran teleporters. He also amassed an army of exiles from Rome who were fed up with persecution. After seeking revenge on Catalina's father for hiring Markus to hunt them down, he established his followers on the world of Metheel, where he first arrived after being struck by the Marlquaan. The Meethlite nation was born.
That's when a man named Shortimo Bokakrast on Metheel first began to discover the possibilities of Marlquaan experimentation: genetic engineering, Marlquaanite rubies, and more. Unfortunately for Shortimo, the government on Metheel seized control of his discoveries and sought to use them for evil. He became part of a rebellion, managing to send most of his work to Earth where it would be out of the reach of the kingdom's nefarious agenda. He and other Meethlites began altering themselves genetically, creating graphite-colored skin for themselves and small noses. It was said the somewhat became a "new subspecies" of man by doing this. Meanwhile, most of the rebels began altering themselves to be green. The Green Meethlites were eventually exiled to a prison colony planet called Phaelon, where they became known as Phaelites.
Both groups sought to take still-regular humans living on both worlds, and alter them in different ways. Phaelite Experiments' Offspring, or "Phexos," became genuinely successful. They were rivaled only by Meethexos - their Meethlite-engineered counterparts. The arms race led to a Phaelite war for independence, which became the centuries-long Phaelon-Metheel War. History told the tales of Dephinol Wilmarik, who helped lead a resistance force against the evil Meethlite Blazarik Kripanol. Eventually, a group of Phaelites and a group of Meethlites would be stranded on Earth. They would form their own societies under the protection of Earth leaders - who sought to keep their existence under public radar as much as possible while benefiting from their knowledge.
A dangerous substance known as "nin-chyo" would be discovered in China, and was a result of Marlquaan storms. It would lead to two radioactive projects in China being created from it - the Ming-Yo and Ming-Cho. Zhoo Lin and his daughter Min Lin would travel to France many centuries later to educate the western world about it. But their efforts proved fruitless when they got caught up in the Reign of Terror.
Several Marlquaanite rubies were also created. Some good came of it, like the Beamer's Ruby guardian Hester Prynne and Miles "the Oraphim" Wealthington being in possession of such rubies. Even John Domeck, Miles' good friend, would get together with his wife Kicked Deer to defend the Marlquaanite rubies. But evil sought to achieve that power too. The Shrouded Entity became one of the most powerful Marlquaanites ever, and even got his jollies by pretending to be the Devil himself. His evil was so great, that he was disowned even by the Society of the Icy Finger. Said Icy Finger longed for world domination - and wanted the rubies for its schemes. John Domeck and his wife Kicked Deer became their #1 and #2 targets for assassination due to their repeated acts of frustrating the Icy Finger's efforts. When Shrouded Entity became too great a threat to ignore, it would take Oraphim trapping him in a block of ice in Greenland to protect 17th-century Massachusetts from the menace.
However, Shrouded Entity during his tenure in Boston also had a very destructive effect on the Umpid family. His corrupting influence led to young Sarah Umpid growing up to become a witch that went by the moniker of "Meshaluta." She would also find a way to bond with the Marlquaan - but only in a way that she'd be able to unlock in the event of her demise. A secret society of occultists and New World Order-aspiring types formed called the Society of the Icy Finger. They sought to rule the world after getting their hands on as many Marlquaanite rubies as they could. Meshaluta's influence would be felt for many centuries after her demise. She is murdered with gunpowder explosions and fire in her own house, after being betrayed by the Rintolin family. She initially worked with the Rintolins to keep the Icy Finger from harming Rintolin stocks and estates. Zachariah Rintolin changed his name to "Robert Rintel," hoping to escape the curse. This only worked for a short time, when Meshaluta deduced the ruse and swore to destroy the Rintels one way or another - even from the grave.
One member of her coven, Sanction Harlem, gave a bone-chilling poem right before being executed for witchcraft. Another of her cult followers, Sam Wrikon, would be blamed in Colorado for a silver mine accident. He'd be executed by being trapped in a cabin and stung to death by bees. He became the ghostly Honeybee Samuel and terrorized the cabin.
When Henry Lohtz was denied a better life, he became a skilled pirate instead. He eventually became the captain of his own ship. He managed to confiscate trillions in wealth, and had his own well-hidden place to bury it. But it wasn't any of these treasures that mattered most to him. He mostly sought after the secret knowledge of "nin-chyo," as well as longing to find a Marlquaanite ruby. His adventures, however, got the Society of the Icy Finger after him. He was able to retire safely, however. But first, he discovered what he later dubbed the "crown" of his treasures. Carved into by a lightning whelk and some oyster drills was a small half of a scallop seashell. That seashell's lightning whelk carving resembled a letter "G" to him. He decided to name it the "Gerosha Stone." He even had plaster replicas of it made, to keep the real seashell safely hidden with his treasure while showing off replicas during his journeys. His pirate flag, which he then used to decorate his home, was modified to include a seashell that looked like the Gerosha Stone. He trusted the secret of his treasure to the man he trusted most - a man who would encode in riddle the treasure's location. Only the bravest, smartest, and most-worthy would get to inherit the treasure. Over time, Lohtz's treasure became the stuff of myth and legend.
In WWII, a reluctant Charles Hammerstein is recruited to put his Centhuen Prototype abilities as "Centipede Charlie" to use in combat on the Japanese front. He becomes one of the first Phexos to be put to use in a joint venture between Phaelite society and the US government. However, he is eventually betrayed by his higher ups and left for dead. Meanwhile, the Meethlites exiled to Earth have formed an organized crime ring known as the Hebbleskin Gang. A man named Tobey Flippo refuses to be silent about what happened to Charlie, in spite this making him a target for assassination by both the Democrat Party and the Hebbleskins. Charlie's limited success spawns inspiration to create a few more Phexos.
After retiring from his initial adventures, Tobey went on to do other things in life. He became involved with the Phaelites for his own protection. However, he fatefully befriended a woman named Alison Ligash. He sought to one day fulfill his dream of finding the lost treasure of Henry Lohtz - particularly the Gerosha Stone. However, his friendship with Alison put him at odds with Alison's abusive boyfriend, Steve McLaine. The two are eventually forced to flee when he tries to have Hebbleskin hitmen come after both of them. They were able to escape on the promise that Alison's baby boy be experimented on by Phaelite scientists. She reluctantly agreed to the tests. The consequences of this were that one of baby Stan Flippo's future children could become a Centhuen Prototype. Also, his prior half-cloning resulted in him and the scientist Insila Murtillo having a child named "Ploribus Murtillo," who would grow up to become Darius Philippine.
Some time before the events with Tobey and Alison, and Stan's birth, another part of the Flippo legacy was being born. After Sadasheeva Cherupara, an explorer living in India, was murdered by Thuggees, his widow Alexis Hood returned to her home in the forests near Boonville, Indiana. Alexis was pregnant at the time of Sadasheeva's murder, and gave birth to a daughter she named Marissa. Marissa took care of Alexis' home her whole life, eventually becoming the sole occupant to live there. That changed one fateful night in late 1956, when she was attacked and sexually assaulted by a runaway fugitive named Dwayne Lloyd. She miraculously did not catch "Dwayne Strain," a deadly disease that had claimed the lives of several of Dwayne's other victims. Instead, Marissa became pregnant with a daughter. That daughter became Shalia Flippo after she grew up to marry Stan Flippo. When both Stan and Shalia's parents were all dead, they set out to find the fabled treasure of Henry Lohtz. They succeeded, becoming trillionaires. However, the government confiscated half their value, lowering them to possessing only $500B between them. They had a child of their own: Reily Flippo. Stan became a baseball player while Shalia went into local-area politics. Their peace and prosperity was disrupted when the Hebbleskin Gang arrived in town and took it over, vowing to establish their own utopia after purging the whole nation of resistance. Boonville became their capital for a nation they sought to establish: Netheel. Stan and Shalia were forced to regroup with Darius' troops , and launch a campaign to take the city back. The battle that ensued destroyed most of Boonville. Stan suggested building a new city atop the remains. He dubbed it "Gerosha," after the Gerosha Stone.
Reily was abducted some time before the actual Battle for Gerosha took place in 1990. However, he was immediately recovered by Darius and his teams. Reily soon befriended a young girl named Erin Wyer, whose parents Geoffrey and Patricia Wyer had been murdered by the Hebbleskins' coup. Stan and Shalia decide to adopt her after the Hebbleskins have been thoroughly ousted. Reily eventually meets and marries fellow survivor Ashlee Kornsdall, and the two of them have a son named Kirby Flippo in 1996. In 1999, Stan and Shalia have three more kids: Candi, Miriam, and Marina. In 2006, Stan and Shalia are murdered when their car is run off the road by Hebbleskins - with the lesser of two in the hit serving as witness being none other than Gunner Soorfelt.
Reily's success as a chef leads him to have no interest in taking care of his younger sisters, so Erin gets custody of them. By 2009, the political scene in Gerosha turns ugly. Erin, having the means to send the girls to a private school, sends them to public schools anyway. She doesn't want the three girls to particularly stand out, afraid that them doing so would draw the Hebbleskins to return to Gerosha. Public school life all the way through to the end of high school proves a very hostile environment for the girls, however. Marina is raped by a classmate quite aggressively on her way home from school. This awakens the Curse of Honeybee Samuel in all three girls. Candi helps Marina cover up what happened to avoid suspicions that could cause trouble with Erin. She then dresses up in a crude vigilante centipede outfit to take revenge on the rapist - without the police or media getting any first dibs. Imaki Izuki, Candi's godfather, intervenes to offer Candi guidance and training in a superhero career when he suspects that she's about to go that route. Candi's healing factor and centilegs manifest in full at the age of 12, when she is attacked in the shower by her ex-boyfriend Don "the Psycho" Mendoza. She becomes burdened inside that she cannot report the rape, for fear of media coverage inviting the Hebbleskins back to town. As Erin becomes increasingly mentally unstable, the three younger girls form a pact amongst each other to look out for each other. However, Marina's sudden, growing nymphomania undermines it. The other two start taking the fall for some of Marina's indiscretions amongst peers at school, resulting in them becoming demoralized by the blow to their own reputations and their need to live a lie. Around this same time, a young Donte McArthur learned that he was a special type of Phexo known as an Emwault. After losing his father, he sets out to find his place in the world. His mother was raped a few years back by an intruder, and Donte's half-brother Khumar was the result. Khumar would later change his last name to "Hamilton," to dissociate himself from the mother that only pretended to love him because of Hector. Donte would befriend a blue-spectrum Emwault named Jordan Reddelwick. As Emeraldon and the Sapphire King, they put a stop to some very dangerous criminals in Evansville. However, their friendship turned to rivalry when Jordan could not control his own greed.
The toll this takes on them reaches a boiling point in their senior year. Tired of being used and forgotten, Marina starts withdrawing from her social circles. However, her cravings don't go away. Finally, a certain Matthew Baret notices and takes pity on Marina. He falls in love with her quickly. Alas, she cannot resist the urge to seduce him. She gets pregnant as a result, and Erin finally discovers that Marina is not the little angel once anticipated. Erin kicks Marina out of the house, leading to her marrying Matt so she can have a place to live. Marina later joins the indie band Turkeybreath Skyline, as a source of income for her new family. Miriam eventually sleeps with her boyfriend Phil Couric, to treat his near-suicidal levels of depression. Candi sneaks off from a tour group in Stratford, Ontario. She battles a giant mantis monster that the Hebbleskins unleashed in town. But along the way, she encounters Emeraldon. The two meet up later, and she learns that he is really Donte McArthur, the out-of-work older half-brother of an aspiring farmer named Khumar Hamilton. Candi and Donte quickly become obsessed with each other, but strive to avoid trouble. Trouble eventually finds the Flippos anyway. Phil, while protecting some dangerous secret information from the Hebbleskins, is at one point required to throw himself and the secrets into a river to avoid capture. The Hebbleskins get frustrated when they are unable to find what they were looking for. However, Phil's body turns up later. He is presumed dead by drowning. Miriam withdraws into her activities as a hacker named "Sniperbadger," to bury her pain at losing Phil.

He is about to head to Kuwait to suppress a major operation by the Hebbleskins there. However, her plan fails. Donte is captured, and things are staged to make him appear to be dead. The Hebbleskins return entirely on their own, and Gunner kills Erin Flippo with the help of Skellig Soorfelt, accidentally while attempting to get Candi. Candi is attacked and raped by Don the Psycho on her way back to Erin's house from a visit to Imaki's house, where she was visiting Imaki and her childhood friend Jack Mercreek.

She returns home to find what remains of Erin. She tries to flee town, but is intercepted by Gerosha police. They work with Darius Philippine to fake her death, so she can start her life over in Evansville as Candi "Stevens."
The ruse only lasts for a time, before Hebbleskin operatives in Evansville begin to grow suspicious of Centhuen Prototype sightings in the area ever since "Miss Stevens" enrolled at Viron University. When Candi attempts to apply for a job at the Hazy Eighties Bowling Alley, she is assaulted by Meethlites. She is rescued by a scientist named Denny Levens, whom she quickly falls in love with. As their lives grow increasingly complicated, the two of them work together to perfect an invention that she dubs "Denny pills," which allow the user a window of time to reattach and immediately heal severed limbs or even their own heads. With help from her classmate Laurie Pegol, Candi begins doing her own investigations into various crimes in the Viron-Evansville area. However, the nefarious Kerpher Gang raids the Hazy Eighties one day and makes off with dozens of children they abducted. They blow the building up. One of Candi's former coworkers, Jeral Cormier, transforms into Botan the Plant-Man. Candi calms him down when he throws a tantrum in public after his car is stolen. She convinces him to flee town. He does so, heading to Florida.
Some time later, Candi and Denny are at a retreat getaway cabin when they survive an attempt on their lives by Gunner. The two of them also soon discover that Candi has become pregnant, so they agree to marry. Candi learns the hard way that pregnancy makes her powers not work. She discovers that the baby is a girl, so she and Denny plan to call her Angie. Around that time, the Malestrom family residence is raided. Duke Arfaas and his minions have Jeraime Malestrom and his wife Dolly captured for use in AI backvisor experiments. Dolly proves uncooperative, and they instead decide to keep her jailed on death row. Jeraime is forcibly turned into a ruthless killing machine in powered armor, dubbed "Musaran." Suspected Centhuen Prototypes all over Evansville are suddenly slaughtered by the menace, and the police chief Merle Hourvitz throws in his lot with the Hebbleskins. A coup is started to turn Evansville into a Hebbleskin-controlled city.
Candi intercepts a plot to have Denny assassinated, since he betrayed the Hebbleskins many years ago. She is unable to save him from Musaran, however. She goes into labor, but Angie doesn't live very long. Candi slips into a coma after giving birth. She awakes to find herself at Jack's reservation, staying in one of Imaki's homes. Coping with her losses, Candi begins an affair with Jack. It is short-lived, as Imaki reveals intelligence that Donte is still alive. Imaki is killed in a raid on the village by La Raza radicals. Jack agrees to stay behind and defend his home, allowing Candi to rescue Donte.
She first saves a small child named Maria Sanmarcos from Victor Nanale of the Kerpher Gang, becoming a media sensation as "Ciem." She soon hatches a scheme to get herself captured, and uses Dolly to cause a distraction aboard Arfaas' doomsday ship. Darius Philippine and a team of National Guard use the diversion to their advantage, and launch a raid to reclaim Evansville. Candi finds Donte and saves his life, but she is soon confronted once again by Musaran. A cancer stricken Donte does his best to function as Emeraldon, and helps destroy the doomsday ship. Ciem battles Musaran in an office complex after that, and manages to separate Jeraime from the AI program. However, her methods blind him.
Once things have returned somewhat to normal in town, Donte begins receiving treatments for his cancer. He agrees that Emeraldon needs a sidekick, and that Ciem is qualified for the job. Candi and Donte resume their relationship. Meanwhile, Miriam has been struggling to find herself and find a path for her life in Alaska.

Seth is forced to put Pilltar into the field once more to confront the threat, with help from Stephanie Barrin and her new feminine Pilltar drone, dubbed "Strawberry." Iowa is not the only place where exciting things happen, however. It is only two years after Candi first becomes Ciem that she must embark on her most perilous journey yet. Pregnant, she starts losing her powers. But she cannot let that stop her. Captain Aardwulf threatens Evansville and so does the Mik-Non terror network. A corrupt NSA agent named Lloyd Kolumn gets involved with the Hebbleskin Gang, and launches an elaborate plot to start WWIII and have Miriam Flippo blamed for it. Ciem requires the assistance of Miram, Emeraldon, Black Rat, and Vienna Dockler to destroy the Ming-Yo and defeat Capp Aard - as well as expose Kolumn for the traitor he is. This happens while Candi and Donte are discussing getting married - and adopting young Charlie Wortell following the deaths of his biological parents. Meanwhile, Rob and Hannah Marrington from Farrenville must help Jake Asawa to destroy the Ming-Cho before it falls into the wrong hands. This is after it ends up in the back yard of Charlie Raymond, following Betty Harmin leaving it there to hide it from Chinese agents and the Mik-Non.

Inspiration and revision
Comprehensive Gerosha was declared in early 2010, as a reaction to a variety of issues that were plaguing Classic Gerosha. The first of these was difficulty developing a coherent continuity and timeline while trying to make the events of The Bison, Grillitan Diner, and Volkonir fit in the same world as The Battle for Gerosha and The Gray Champion: Freedom's Apparition. It seemed fitting to un-merge the Gerosha and Volkonir universes. But after they were merged, it would take a reboot to un-merge them.
A second issue was with Candi's physiology, and a desire to fix issues with it. Her life story needed some repairs as well. Not wishing to remake the Ciem first webcomic a fourth time, it was decided that a novel would be needed to update Candi's story and make it more compelling. Also, a novel would be able to be sold for profit. The webcomics earned no moneyh. Ideas began flooding in for a new tone and direction for telling her origin story - ideas that would come to define the character ever since. A third issue was with Tom Six in 2009 releasing The Human Centipede, which forced Ciem to drop its subtitle. It was originally dubbed Ciem: The Human Centipede in 2005. There was zero desire on the part of the Dozerfleet founder to have any part of Ciem collide with the Human Centipede film franchise. This name issue was viewed as being similar to The Last Airbender removing "Avatar" from its name to avoid a collision with James Cameron's Avatar. Finally, there were enough franchises going on, that there seemed to be a need to organize them and bring some cohesion to them. This came in the form of volumes being introduced. The lineup was figured out in October of 2010 to be as follows:
1. Legacies of the Marlquaan
2. Flippo Clan Origins
3. Gerosha Legends
5. The Meshalutian Trilogy
It was decided that no more webcomics would be made for quite some time. Even then, no feature-length ones would be made. Works would be set up first as novels, then possible as graphic novels. Film and TV show adaptations were the goal. However, concept art was an option. Comprehensive Gerosha is the first Gerosha universe to have the option of taking advantage of The Sims 3 for concept art. The Ciem suit was redesigned for The Sims 2 one last time, before a majority of concept art production was moved to Sims 3. Said new option allowed for sculpting details to be much more precise, bringing the characters to life like never before. Comprehensive was also the first universe to introduce the fully ethnically-accurate Candi Levens, even if she had character flaws worse than her Despair Gerosha counterpart, a problem that wouldn't be addressed until her Cataclysmic Gerosha counterpart restored a small sense of balance to the character. However, her hair and skin were now closer than ever before to an Indo-Persian Mulatto variety of Blasian. Her eyes were now brown. Her centilegs were now retractable stingers that were about 2-1/4 inches long, rather than the ridiculously long tentacles of her predecessors. Ciem was equipped with retractable mechanical whips to replace her tentacle centilegs, as a sort of homage to The Amazing Spider-Man giving Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man mechanical web shooters instead of the organic ones allegedly used by Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man. These were replaced in Nuclear Crisis by centipede venom-laced staple guns, dubbed "dart shooters."
Miriam was also made more rebellious, taking advantage of the Sims 3 tattoo system. Marina Baret was given some more personality, being reinterpreted as a huge music lover. She developed an affinity for "Hipster" dress, and would often be seen performing for a band called "Turkeybreath Skyline." Her son Andy Baret was given orange highlights to his hair, so he could be called "the Pitohui." This is because his other alias, Cyclehawk, was already in use elsewhere. Dozens of other characters were also visually reinterpreted, sometimes out of necessity.
Three other tools became used for the first time, two of them in 2011 and the other one in 2012. Some photographs of models were considered for use, but that would not be carried out until late 2012. In early 2011, DozerfleetWiki moved to Wikia. This allowed for better representation of characters than what was possible at Wiki-Site.com. Since the machine that operated The Sims 3 was not able to find a regular desk space in 2011, it was in storage for a time. Dozerfleet Portable operated as Dozerfleet Main during this same time frame. Since Dozerfleet Portable could not handle Sims 3, UGO's HeroMachine software was put to use. Far from perfect, it still was able to capture the basic essence of much of the Gerosha cast.
Also, while less efficient, MakeTarget's MakeHuman 3D Alpha 6 was put into use for designing book covers for Ciem: Vigilante Centipede and Ciem: Nuclear Crisis. The Creative Commons Zero license for its use proved especially useful. Later upgrades to Alpha 7 proved more difficult to work with, as the built-in poser was gone. Two different shots of the naked Alpha 6 Candi Levens model were employed, and real-life clothes were put on them and altered in Photoshop to create the illusions of Ciem and Miriam. A special 3D model was created just for Vienna Dockler, with a similar set of practices. All hair was painted on digitally, as were most of the Ciem suit effects. Photographic materials were used wherever possible.
Due to the more-efficient way that The Sims 3 was set up, higher-resolution images were possible using the "C" button for screen capture. Files generated were organized in the order they were taken, which made production turnaround time for non-effects-heavy shots significantly faster than what had been the case in Sims 2. As a drawback, the in-game camera proved more difficult to get into position. This was made further complicated by how difficult it proved to put custom items of necessity into the game, since there was no Body Shop tool. Therefore, effects-heavy shots could take up to five times as long to render properly in post for concept art.
The techniques of using pseudo-chroma key that were employed in Ciem 2 were stepped up quite a few notches both for book and concept art for Comprehensive Gerosha properties. That practice would continue long afterward for later incarnations of the mythos. Both the Vigilante Centipede and Nuclear Crisis backgrounds, as well as the one for Condemnation, utilized stock photos of downtown Grand Ledge. A photo very similar to the one used for the Condemnation front cover proposal would later be used in concept art for the Q-Basic Gorillas fanfic movie pitch.
In 2010, as the Dozerfleet founder left SWOCC Studios, access to a station with Avid Media Composure came to an end. Photoshop editing continued as always for stills. However, video became something done almost exclusively in Adobe Premiere. Various effects would be experimented with, including a re-release of Blood Over Water in 3D.
Promotion of Comprehensive Gerosha mostly occurred through releasing non-superhero versions of the reinterpreted cast as available downloads for The Sims 3. Candi was updated for Sims 2, though most of the other cast members were kept the same for that game. Sims 3 downloads consisted of the following:
These together were referred to as the Sims 3 "Gerosha Multiverse Pack" in DzMD, which went by "Utterly Sims" at the time. The reason many characters were released as downloadable files in civilian form, rather than with their iconic suits, was due to the sheer number of custom content downloads required to make those suits - and the end user licensing on redistribution of said custom content. The better part of 2011 not spent on documenting the Dozerfleet founder's history at SWOCC Studios was instead spent on developing and maintaining a DzMD database of files for redistribution and promotion of The Gerosha Chronicles. At the same time, 11 Stationery Voyagers-related characters were offered for download.
Even though not required for novels, it was seen as a novelty and tradition that all Ciem media-related works should have a tie-in soundtrack. Ciem: Vigilante Centipede: The Album was this for its novel. There were plans to make more for each book, but those plans were ultimately canceled with the franchise.
Not even halfway into development of Vigilante Centipede, the story became too bloated for its own good. There were plans in 2012 to split it into two parts: "Birth of a Vigilante" and "The Centipede's Rebellion." However, coverage of the 2012 election cycle had the Dozerfleet founder convinced that a post-Benghazi second term for Obama would make Candi's lifestyle impossible (even by Gerosha universe standards.) Some other issues that were not yet resolved from Classic Gerosha meant that Vigilante Centipede would have to be re-written from the ground up. When Obama was declared the "winner," in spite massive fraud being evident everywhere in the country, the Dozerfleet founder slipped into a depression. It became obvious that the entire Comprehensive Gerosha timeline post-2012 would need to be scrapped.
To avoid this in the future, it was determined that the successor universe would be officially declared an alternate "what could have been" history. That way, assuming God spared America from the fate being predicted, the alternate history tag would prevent the new timeline from losing all credibility. It would continue on the way that Watchmen did, in spite its alternate history about Richard Nixon. Ideas quickly flooded, both from Watchmen and from clips of a canceled TV show called Jericho, for an alternate timeline that would show a worst-case scenario of the United States being invaded and taken over. The new timeline was going to be called "Apocalyptic Gerosha." However, predicting a potentially premature Judgment Day seemed redundant in lieu of how Stationery Voyagers: Final Hope does so. The new continuity was therefore going to be called "Cataclysmic Gerosha." Comprehensive Gerosha was declared defunct on November 7th of 2012. Its replacement was declared official 23 days later.
