It is Week Seven, Mounties! The final week of TMP Vol One will have us peeking beyond the veil into what may be the darker nature of the magimystical world, not for the first or last time. You already know what to expect in these chapters—we’ve been building up to this and I, for one, have been salivating (is that weird? Don’t mind me). Without any further nonsense from me, let us begin.
1. In these chapters is, for certain, one of the most intense and dark displays of power and magiq in TMP on the whole. Describe the impact of this scene on you.
2. Is it possible that the imagery of Lauren melting into snow upon inheriting the powers of the Cagliostro is related to her memory of her first experience using her own adept powers on her sister?
3. The second assessment was tied to a model of the same frightful device that ended the Cagliostro’s life. In iterations past of the Mountaineers, what might the complication of the second assessment have looked like?
