From the description:
25 Chapters, 117,122 words:
"Secrets which span solar systems from days, wars and races gone by are sometimes best left to die." - A maxim of the Arglois people.
A family of Xeno-archaeologists uncovers an ancient evil which threatens to bring about a new regime of darkness. Legends of demons throughout the planets could be traced back to this menace. It tears this family apart on its way to reclaiming power. The hidden truths behind the legends and the current mysteries and horrors of the galaxy are revealed on the tortuous and often betrayal filled path to saving the galaxy. The two youngest members of this family, and a fallen paladin of the church, are all that stand in the path of this evil. They will be helped by new comrades, and hunted by new enemies. All will walk with pain and no one goes unscathed...
Riana Conlan and her little sister, Laira, make their way through the galaxy in pursuit of the evil sentience which destroyed their family.
The secret of that evil lies in the history of a planet which is covered in a semi-intelligent mold which raises the dead and enslaves the mind of the living. Those enslaved whether alive or dead are referred to as Zom-Becks. Zom-Becks are a cross between the word zombie and the name of the planet: Zembeckis. The Zom-Becks and the mold itself acquire a new leader with a force of will which reigns it under control. That willpower belongs to Joshua Hughes, a former paladin of the church, who is a true believer in God. Joshua Hughes must come to grips with his faith and his own status as a true zombie lord.
Meanwhile Riana resurrects ancient alien technology and becomes a force of legend, despite her permanent wound which festers in her flesh which threatens to kill her on a day by day basis. To stop the constant necrosis of her own flesh, she is forced to burn it away through fire every few weeks. Riana becomes the legendary Freelancer through her acts as a bounty hunter, an assassin and an enforcer. She knows the end of everything is coming and she is too weak and in too much pain to hope to live things through so she prepares and trains her own legion of super commandos.

I love Penny Arcade, It had me @ For the Vin
I'm a newbie on these boards, so far I've been scolded, told to shut up and felt lost in a new and somewhat hostile environment - it's a lot like high school. Well I learned somethings in high school so I plan on learning things here.
