1. Simulation of vampires in 1971 Los Angeles.
2. Presented a simulation of a sub-light tramp trader crew in a quadernary stellar system with dozens of planet and hundreds of moons.

4. Presented a simulation of unhappy characters at the tail end of 19th Century Japan after the arrival of other nations
5. Co-presented simulation of female Soviet night bomber pilots in World War II
6. Speculative simulation of mages preventing Napoleon looting the Egyptian Valley of the Kings in 1798.
