It’s like finding Excalibur and handing it to the kid with downs.


Experience: 6


With Fox safely returned to Marcury’s Envy, the Circle returns to the tower in search of the Book of Three Circles and the wedding bands of Fox and Yuki. After slaughtering the remaining protectors, they find both, and 7 other exotic components, before wiping out the AI, attempting to hide evidence of their involvement and then leaving for the Eastern Grove. There they wait for Scarlet to return from Nexus. When she does she tells them that Isabella is still at large, Lucy is still trying to steal council members and Gavin has let himself get captured by Lucy to determine her location. Traveling to Nexus, Zuko confronts Isabella and makes peace with her, learning that she wants to meet with Reaper and that she is Scarlet’s mother.

Like Siracha sauce on a whore.


Experience: 6


Despite invading her home, the Circle is unable to locate Mercury. During the search Scarlet tells Mnemia that Raksi is in Nexus and involved in the hunt for Isabella, indicating that the Tower of the Raven in Mahalanka, the prison of Fox, is not protected by the elder lunar. It’s also during this time that Zuko learns that Caleb is the son of Kadon and Ribbons; knows the secret of the doppelgangers but the half-caste promises that telling the Circle will simply get them killed. Zuko also learns that Scarlet, Silken Sky and Zis are sisters, likely the Children of the Most High. Ioni learns that the blue box everyone wants is a Pandora’s Box of sort; large enough to fit a person and difficult to escape. The Circle reaches Mahalanka and begins the search for Fox.

Focusing on the north they discover a probe of sorts that originated in the Wyld. Tracking it back to its point of origin the Circle discovers a mature solar system where once they encountered the incarations of the Tearing Gale. Their presence there excites Mercury, expanding her portfolio briefly, but seems to enrage Jupiter, which may be connected to the fact that the planet Jupiter seems to be the center of this solar system.
