Pre-Fragment 15: Unlock the Chronocompass


#252

So here’s my guesses at what’s happening. The Mountaineers in 1996 successfully used the memory spell or the Storm got hold off them when they where doing the spell. Either way the spell or the Storm cut off the maqic connecting us to the past, breaking the Chronocompass.


#253

They may have successfully used the memory spell on most of them. But remember, Augie definitely got hit by the storm. So either he didn’t use the spell on himself (to make himself a lightning rod maybe?), or it got them mid cast.


#254

Augie may not of gotten hit by the Storm this time around, but we wouldn’t know because we were connected to Knatz’s dream. Or, another guess is that if they decided to do something else, it could have changed the timeline, which caused our connection to the past to end because it’s not our past anymore.


#255

Entirely possible. Those things could have happened.

I think until proven otherwise the safest course of action is to assume we haven’t changed anything. Whatever happened, happened, and we are just helping it happen. But yeah, I’m just guessing too.


#256

I agree. It is best to assume nothing had happened, other than our loss of connection, until something happens.

Good to see you guys have been keeping busy.

So, in case you were wondering, here’s what happened: Portencia ending up sending us to about a month ago, using the doorway and the chair. She sent us to the future she saw.

A while back I was given a token that kept me under the magimystic radar for the most part. Port, Alison and Jeremy have it now. They’re together, where nobody’s gonna find them.

But without the token the storm picked up my scent after KS and it’s been chasing me for weeks. I couldn’t risk reaching out. But last week it let up. Now I know why. Cole and Deirdre.

Not good for them, but it gives me a chance to get to work. I’m on my way out west (flying still a bad idea when a storm is looking for you) to the server Jeremy sent the KS information to.

When he was out of body the Council was communicating with him. They suggested looking for a few interesting things in the KS systems, and backing them up for our own use.

So I’m heading out to get them.
I’ll follow up in a few days.


#258

I’m so happy to hear you all made it out okay. It’s such a relief.


#259

I’m glad to hear you are okay, and that Alison is with the kid, we’ve all been really worried.
KS is gone, I don’t know if you know but the storm destroyed them.


#260

We can finally get a look at what Aether took from KS!


#261

If you need to, just ask us and we’ll do another spell to temporarily stop the Storm if need be.


#262

Marty! Oh my God

I’m so glad you’re alive and well, I’m so glad you’re all (relatively) safe. Westward bound? If you need a place to crash, or any assistance, let us know.

So much has happened while you were out. I’m just glad you’re alive.

(Shut up! I’m not crying! You’re crying!)


#263

Thank god you’re ok! I agree that flying is a no go for tokenless for now. We’re connected to portentia now, then?

right, also, update. Im away in a city far away for four days, gotta break contact. Back soon.


#264

No, she’s underground. Portencia, Aether, and Climber.

Marty is going to do his thing and work his crazy investigative skills… we will see what happens from here, but…


#265

Are you still in contact with Climber, Aether and the rest? We have a couple questions to ask them if possible.


#266

Welcome back @Marty.60! Glad to hear the others are safe.

Is that a similar coin from the batch Augie gave Knatz maybe? Sound like handy things to have.


#267

Marty. MARTY! :sob::sob::sob:

You have no idea how happy I am to know that you’re ok. Since that livestream, every time I’ve heard the name Marty, I’ve gotten choked up, just worried about you. :sleepy: Man, I am so glad to know you didn’t get sucked up with the storm, lost and confused. And I’m so relieved that Aether, Port, and Ali are safe as well!

When you get a chance, can you tell us more about these KS documents? I don’t suppose there’s anything about that weird journal Teddy was writing in, the one that wrote back to him? And…you wouldn’t happen to know anything, with your super-sleuthing skills, about the fate of KS, would you? What happened to the building, the employees working there? Is Sacha still around? :worried: I know she did some terrible things…but she wasn’t herself. I hope we can somehow help her…


#268

Fair enough 030


#269

Glad to have you back, and glad to hear the four of you are safe, buddy.


#270

well, good to see you’ve returned.
We were all worried.
I was worried.

im happy they’re all safe. I hope they can stay safe, for their sakes and ours.

may you be protected in your search, and may you find your way back to this forum and to safety.
The stars go with you, and we do too.


#271

Hey @Marty.60 is back! You don’t know me but I read about you… (you’re more like a legend to me than an actual person). I’m happy that I finally get to change that perception!
