You ain’t wrong. I agree with your logic.
One thing I’d like to point out… the last two fragments have confirmed, for me at least, the fact that in the world beyond the mundane, the word “Book” means something more. A period in time, which seems to be the flavor of this fragment. Will someone create a thread to discuss this, please?
I got you.
Some questions and things that I think are important to ask:
- Is Ascender willing to work with us to open the Book? (I’m hoping yes, and it seems likely)
- Has Ascender received an email from the book about Complication 15, and if so, what did it say?
- Does he otherwise have any leads on 15 or any loose threads from previous Complications that might lead somewhere, like they did with Knatz and the suitcase?
- Does Ascender know about the hex? Does he have any idea of what happened to Augie, Knatz, and the rest?
- What exactly happened with him and the Storm? Was he referencing the incident in Missouri or did the Storm attack him again?
I think we should also warn him that the Storm can reach through electronics, get multiple people using phones and computers. He probably already knows this, but it’s worth mentioning. However, that shouldn’t be a problem if he’s only communicating with us, right?
There’s someone online right now. No messages showing up though.
Edit: Nevermind. I’m looking at it on mobile and once I refreshed, Ascender’s message showed up. Nothing new though, and no input field.
Got to the server farm, got the information off of it per Jeremy’s instructions, and spent the night going through it. Most of it’s corrupted, and I don’t think by accident. It probably happened when he was offloading it. Standard admin paperwork and filing stuff is all there, but anything about Fallon’s team and their research is barely legible, or just junk now.
I found parts of his email. He wrote up demands a few years ago, things he needed before he would agree to bring Nate in, who I assume is his son, aka Wanderer, the adept whose power Kemetic wanted to research.
There are also pieces of his journal, and it’s all shot to hell, but from a few entries I get the sense that he didn’t just know about The Storm, he was researching it.
I’m forwarding it all to Jeremy to see if he can salvage any of it, but it looks like this trip turned out to be a waste of my time and your patience. Sorry for getting your hopes up.
Just saw somebody asked about KS. The building’s gutted. The story the business park is telling anybody who asks is KS moved offices offshore and while the building was vacant there was a massive flood.
thank you for the update Marty.
Well, WE know what happened there. Looks like the veil still holds.
Let’s hope Jeremy can somehow coax out the corruption from the files so we can view them
You guys know somebody named Benefactor?
Knatz mentioned him in a response, why?
Did you hear or get something?
We’ve been told of this “Benefactor”.
The past mounties mentioned them, but im not sure how much information we have on the person in question.
anyone got anything?
EDIT: 5 beat me too it
He possibly work for the Council back with the 94 Mounties
“Benefactor” just sent me a text to my phone. I think they’re reading the basecamp forum:
“You don’t have time to comb the files. The Council’s protection is fading. Fast. Go back to the north shore. Tell the mountaineers when you’re there, and I’ll tell you where to find Fallon.”
Guess I was right about the council, man it sucks!
Okay, thank you for telling us this. This is extremely important; but what’s the north shore?
Well I guess it’s time to saddle up and prepare for a fight.
Everyone, we might want to try and find a shielding spell or 50.
and or that lightning rod spell.
Godspeed Marty. Please be safe.
KS was based in Massacheussets, so Fallon probably lives there. My guess is the North Shore refers to this part
Guys I think we need to be very careful about what we say on here as we dont know if we can trust the Benefactor.
