Let's go. I after he'd encounter, I had over the woods. And it was last time where I saw a very similar encountered What happened? My backstory. I went to go question them. Her too. I'm proposing that I found a lead to the man that I'm looking for. Okay? Before what? For
I for Leo.
Okay, so you go to question and he runs away.
Jason, my wings.
You do lose him in the woods, but, you know, you catch a glimpse of money,
and they're so that Is that the guy? No. Catching a glimpse of the guy was
the guy you're going? Yeah. Yeah. You notice that he has some sort of, like, insignia, and we're patched. That doesn't seem to be like the old patch, But you have no idea what it really looks
like. You just outside and you're like, I don't know. Okay, so that was that
Could have happened
in, like, a day. I propose that I looked into this insignia. Sure. Okay,
So what did you do to look into
go to the gills library?
How long do you want to spend two weeks? Okay, two. So you don't find it and where you just can't remember exactly what the insignia looks like. So you can't remember whether you forgot? Not as you're looking through it. Another guild member comes through and sees the different types of books you're looking at and asked if it just ask what you're doing.
They say I'm looking for the meaning of a specific symbol, but I can't remember. But it looks something like this
roll. See if you can draw it out.
o U. So you draw symbol and she flips to a page in the book and points out the symbol that you drew this person actually like is they work in the library? Sure. Personally, they walked up to you, but they do specifically like they They're very much into symbolism and history. So they, you know, they look at all these books. Look at all the different guilds. They like looking at how people choose their symbols and stuff. And they point out a page for a guild will call it The girls will come the crystal Japanese
crystal So intimate.
So what do you do with this information
thinker? Extensively. He's been do last month researching everything I can about the crystal s.
So, uh, when do you research the crystal daffodils? What were some of ways that you research
research by subtly asking bars taverns around the guild hall? I start looking at books and magazines or books and squirrels. I go to your books and scrolls in the Guild library as well as the books and scrolls in our library. Yeah, is mine so impossible? Maybe I took a trip to the main city. There's a bigger city, right? That's not where the Guild hall is. Like the regular library.
There's three, since that they're kind of like city countries. Halstead is the one that the policy in Sour Stead, which is the home of the great Evan well, fortress, where the greatest minds of the space she had come to create progress of all manner or the country the highest of their order. The evidence All stages are creators, all new magic and technology. Since the forming of this nation,
I go there
Yeah, for reference. The other one is well, instead, it's a location of king arteries, and he is the one who deals with society, morals and justice. When this station
Probably only feasible, even get one. In fact, Probably couldn't even have spent too much time there. But so soon you're gonna go to Southside.
So you go to sell instead and bring up everything that you've learned about something in about the crystal back bills. And finally there, eh, Gil? That existed a little more than 50 years ago, but they didn't meet there kind of suspiciously. They never have that much for now, so they weren't looked into, but they give you the location of where they were last. That's all you get for it. All right? Who wants Thio do there? Two months or
so? I've been
working for help. Our our place more. And I've also been spending a lot of time in the new by force. Like my God, this is the fort thing. So I travel light, get back.
Also keeping tabs on Israel's and following her.
Which one do you want? A role for grace? Well, you said you were trying to get back in touch with you for that.
Oh my, You
How do you How do you try and contact her?
Definitely being in the forest
like So how are you? What are you doing?
I'm like sitting under a tree, just sacrificing.
Okay, so you do that. And you you sacrifice whatever small creature you found and sit and meditate. And when you medicate, you see anything exaggerated version of the PTSD dream you are. Except this time I don't recognize the people that they're part of standard. But everything seems to stand out way more and be way more gruesome. And it's just like it's being thrown back in your face.
Okay. And then I'm rolling Thio. Hello, Adrian. Counter roll toe spine. I think
her role will decide whether or not you try to follow her. But this happened. You don't Daniel doesn't know this, but you tried to follow her during. So you spent what I'm gonna say. An entire month's trying to commune with Alana is only getting those awful, more vivid. And, like sometimes different, like, different, like things change every time you see the vision. Mostly it's the people that are being represented changing, and you're don't you recognize any of them? But you spend a month trying to, like, really get it. Try and get anything other than that So when you decide Okay. Never mind. I wanna follow Adrian around, see what she's up to. What reason? Revolved around.
I had an awful dream of her. She was like a
drill was the tray er was, like that of my dream. So I was like, Okay. And like, I still don't really trust her. So I think like her kind after, like being rejected over and over all the streams of alarm is just like any more more paranoid. And it's just like, who
girl? Even like we don't know about that. We don't even never sleeps like she could
be anyone. And I
feel like this. What along is trying to tell me?
Okay, So, uh, while you're thinking about that, you think that you've got the exact right time You're staying up late. Like making sure that if there's any movement, you'll be able to spot her. And you're just You're very ready, Thio. You got everything. Chances you've been staying back. So there's no way there's gonna be a noise. None of that. If you never see her, leave the compound ever like you're sitting up in your hand and never seen any you should be able to see everything around the tree. But unknown to Anya, that is when atrial left for Sacristan. So she had left while you were on your last day. Yeah. So you
have nothing. You will
say that you spent like, oh, like trying to catch her moving around before you realize that she's absolutely not anywhere near the compound. She's not practicing anything down. Hideout is like she's not. She would have come out at some point by now. So what do you do for your last few
weeks? I guess helping your stop making place.
Okay, rolls of that. But you guys called Stick. But his This actual name is
Every sticky the door he's guarding. Okay, so you spend most of the time gardening with everything before you decide to work up the courage to be like, Hey, could you help me with not a gardening project? And he agrees. And your last week is just kind of setting up. It's it's not exactly what you wanted it to be, but it's kind of like those those logs that you can put like an ex formacion so that if there was mounted combat it's sick. Mounted on that hard time getting through. But you have powers. Yeah. You guys have a small perimeter. The small fence that could potentially stop mounted combat, but probably pretty easy for, like, Cingular people to get through. Look, there's nothing better. It's a job for the most part. You're next. Like, you know,
I get out
and nothing was real in here. Now you just tell me. Oh,
yeah, Killed every existing mermaid. You just got really cold. You feel like feel like like I slobber like,
Yeah, I know. It's just a new turn. Next
I double check that. I did it. You just like you went to the desert. And, like, blacked out there for so long age. Oh, the thing that happened with you is you You were the one who found after a few days trying to get back in all that stuff. You're walking back and you started to see that small transference in creature rubber banding backing for again. So you were the only spotted that the risk or you thought like figures were bending back that specific rift in broad you get Yeah, hold on. He's not back yet. This is after you guys seal the rift and you just have imagining that at least right away. You're kind of just sitting there like thinking about that stone. Yeah, they turned into roaring out of here meter, right? Yeah. I would like to spend my whole time trying Thio opening riffs. Thanks, Ma. Let's put him through. Like trying to figure out what's going on in the rift. Like what the world is like and seeing if I could control any of the river monsters. Okay, so rolf it six 15. Okay, so you're sitting there opening small refuse, even likes through It is what I'm saying that you're going to the polls. You said like you can't really see also much like starting
figure, and you
notice the bigger you keep making it that no matter how did you making it, You can't see You see this like weirdly jagged world That's all this, like purplish blue is and but has very not defined features. So, like you look out and you're like, Oh, maybe on the rise and over there, maybe that's amount. But it could also just be like one big slope of land mass, whatever it is. It's like it's not quite in the shape of a mountain. It's just abstract. Everything's kind of abstract Here. Is your like around? Okay, welcome. So you also noticed that there are no creatures there from what you can see and do you decide to step for and see if you can walk down any thing, See if you can see anything further than just your little portal. Yeah, I'm gonna scribble on the ground, went into rift, Becks. And then I'm gonna just walk in and see if I can see it. So you walk in and you definitely can walk on the ground. And everywhere you look, there are there's it's just large expanses of they land, that's all. And your voice doesn't even like space. Okay, so then I'll try to make another rift inside the rift. So, like, I'm in a world, is it like I, like, see through our world again after that 16 you go to make another and you can hear your ripped closing at the same rate that you're opening. You
state I doing Ugo the gas. You know what? Yeah, I know. You did the video. You
like the odds must be able
to. But also, if I'm in the roof and something happened, you wouldn't even be able to get
th s So pretty much the
last guys already
do it for science. Or do I not do it? Do you want You're the Celtics turns intelligence.
If I don't. If you do it for science sentence ice if you want. I just don't know because like I let you roll. Plus, you're in your intelligence modifier, so you it's you
You know what? No, no, I won't make another Reds does my other riff closer. No, no. All right, so I go back to doing that. And then is anything happening with my ring at the moment while I'm inside? Referral. I think when you're in Rift World, it's always look okay. Where is, like, it only blows the real world When your year in open rift. Or if you're currently opening a rift, that's that's when it close. So I'm not sure I'm holding my fist with a ring and try and like, green lantern. Imagine something like giant fists, Nothing. All right. So I can look project things. Can I? No, I didn't even look for it, right? Taste memory. It rocks. Okay. And then if I touched the rings of the ground or nothing happens stays, We'll see when you do that like that, when you open a rift, he's kind of, like, not really sparks. Like I'm not going to, like, strange. Like that thing you like. You can you kind of almost, like shock zone. But like, it's almost like it's like Ritalin in the area that you're giving it. So when you touch the rim to the ground, that kind of like same ripple just kind of exists around where
you're touching it. All
right, I will light a small fire before bringing stuff from the outside. Yeah. Six. Some of my bed, that's Hey, you light a fire, and then I'm gonna go back out into my real world and closer rifts open the rift and, like, see if fire still burning, Okay? Yes, of you. You do that. You are able to let it fire, close the rift, and when you open it back up, there's not even any evidence of fire there. Okay? So either time passes differently or I'm in a new rift zone. I will say the landscapers, Okay, but But you don't know if that's because it's so big or if it it's the same, actually. So then what I'm gonna do is get the gardener, get a bunch of wood with him and then light, like a mile strip like it ruined scheme. Just Yeah, I can go on, then. Not my campfire, but still this super. So you're gonna after roll 16? Yeah. So everything has not been informed that you guys have been able to do this. Uh oh. No one's talked with ever. Even like he knows riffs exists. You have no idea. I grabbed every by the scruff of his neck. You tell no one, okay? You sufficiently intimidating your girl, but he's doesn't need to be intimidated. Okay, Next urn. Yeah, Scare me, actually. Use equal. Okay. Attorney eyes gave me this'll is amazing. Not not your hand stroking my face. This Rix. Yeah, this, uh, it's pretty, Neto. I'm gonna try and close the rift while you're in here. You? Yeah, Yeah, I'm just trying to figure
out all these
roofs work. I let a little a little fire closed the roof when I opened it back up in the same spot It was gone. Fire was gone. So we're gonna make this mile of torches and see if when I closed this rift opened it up again. I'm still within a mile radius, and it's gonna be a pretty bright light, so I should be able to see in the distance from far Away, unless you have a different idea. No, no, that's sounds clever enough to me. I mean, I have no idea. L riffs Where you guys going to go out in like Daddy's clothes? So I've never even seen one. Put my hand on his shoulder, relate least for, you know, And I just looked sport in this school's hell, yeah, well, let's let's do it. So you and every and literally spent the rest of your money? Yeah, making this giant chain. We'll say this happens in the first month. So that way, when he goes to help on you, he already knows. Yeah. So this is there in the first month, and then he'll help you with your fence and we'll say that That's why it was so hard to get a good fence going since hymen ex turn made so many fires that all over the like a lot of the excess wood that he stepped down from expanding your base. I got used to making extra mile of fires. So you do it and you make it January of fire. Or it was just straight line. Yes. Yeah. Just big mile long line of fire as we're out there, You still don't see anything Every time you've been with these risks before. There's always then some sort of creature. There is no here and come back and close the rift and you open it. We'll say, we'll say, you see that you see far in the distance, you can see white. And are you gonna follow up with them to the light? Um, go. The distance from art are coral to the ember. That wasn't it. We're still here. Everything. You get it. I'm sending this so you don't even you get about half of the mile long fire before you realize that there are, like, small piles of ash. Better building up and you're in the same place just walking down a line of inspires. They're almost almost out, is it? They didn't exist for your first length of eyesight, then this. You've got, like, half your half mile out. You started seeing these little piles matches. Okay, like the last camp fire goes out. How long would you say it can fire? Last popular, too. Well, I see making fire walk away last hours. I'm just thinking, like, close. The rift opened a and then I came back into the world. But it seemed like two hours past. Well, this would have been in cities. Yeah, because you definitely didn't do that. So it's like time is moving faster. Rift World. That it is our worlds, by the way. All right, so that's it. Pretty much. Don't make another Gregson said What now? Um, I'm gonna take some of the ash and go back. Okay. Does anything happen? Actually, it's It's still with you. Is it like purple issue now? Scoops of dirt from There's no dirt so sick. So it's just salt. And suddenly it's cold, So it's not ice late. Great. Good. Is it okay? Yeah. Also, I'm gonna relay everything that happened to me. You guys. Well, I guess you
two unless you disappear somewhere because you're gone, right? For the month
no, Can I just say like, months? We're all back together. Really? Yeah. So you won't be able to relay it until after Malard. Yes, please. Because you're stupid.
I think during the east, for at the beginning of the once I think I started researching, like looking into that, your lord Tagore. Now we'll learn more about him and like his family history, like, I didn't do a lot of, like a backstory somewhere Go kind of like up until, like, recently I've tried to war what happened,
like, very down under and not think about
traumas. So now that this happening is like that game re enter
your life looking into more,
you could do it. And
he should serve a visa, view life, okay, and assume that our way
gets a big
thinking that Laura's like I'm violet can. So you're constantly adding what I
the Lord is from It's part of you, remember? 10. But then so you're quickly starting to run out of. That's a little
That's fine. I'll just start
eso roll roll again? Kind of. Okay, So, uh, you're reading through all these books and you bought a bunch of books, but you haven't really? What? You're Are you singing? Yes. Yeah. Okay. What would like your focus and being safe? There's probably not like an actual thing for it. I'm just asking. You're not like a professor of everything,
e. I feel like he's in what happened in my childhood. I would probably the right national. Okay, so last history of the land and more like history magics like the
street, like the magical
races like Origins of magic. So life, I don't know who the king was two years ago, but, you know, like high
diversity served. So that's that's the reason why you don't find anything you're reading through all of the books that were previously intrigue power from when a fine, bright lived there and he studied tons of magic. He actually had a similar background to you. But that's why you don't find anything. Because Lord Montador, as far as you can tell because you have a fairly expansive library is not magic important.
Okay, so I guess the other thing that I realized that I think the next thing that I would start researching with me by what? Okay, Because she's not like mashable late.
No, you have no idea
what it does. Uh, silly. I'm going trying todo But what
is it about this thing that let's
roll the final? How long? Study
So? So you'll be able to have one more action after you study your long you're setting your walking. Okay, So what is your locket look like? You've never described it.
Now it's getting late. Smallish Lee cameo kind of size gold would like a little time like Jim decorations, No big honking gem or anything like that. But I think it's going to have like, uh, Callie, Go, I guess. Next made out of little impressive Jen's on Friday.
Okay, so you can't open. I mean, you said on the inside, so
Okay, well, you won't
be able to open it or not.
What makes you a more fun story? I feel like that. You know, I
can do whatever it is you're No, it's your lucky. Can you open it? Well, you're trying to research about Yeah, it makes us. You can't. You can't. Yeah. That's basically what, like we could go down. It's like you're trying to figure out what's inside the locket or what it represents. or what? What? That like? He didn't symbol on the inside, so
that's like the driving scenic
designs on the inside. So Well, actually say that you in your research, cracked it. This is the first time that you've opened it. And now you're seeing inside is just this or gates. Very small gemstone. Um, Phoenix. And you're looking through all of your what did you rule again? 11. So we'll just say that when you're looking through all of the books you find a lot of, like, similar artifacts that are all, like, how, a least 100 years or older. Actually, we talked about your guys his age. Are we doing, like, just normal human years? We're doing like
because I'm a Yeah. Yeah, me too.
Yeah. Okay, so we'll say it's been not 100 years of saying, like 202 100 years. Yeah. What? I think they ages Incidents. I think that's what it was. You're seven. I'm I could look at us, Fry. Let's see. What Nice umbilical yet? Oh, Tea, please. Actually have kind of like a short life. Yeah, 35 years is their middle age, 53 years old age Yeah. Okay. You're approaching middle. H
G signed 20
that the walk. It is like the external design of the locket. Definitely looks like it's at least 200 years old. Okay, It's like there's some of the ways that it's you. You can tell that it's also it's magic meat. It's not like someone before Jin, like, created this like like silver Smith ing or whatever. Like it's there's, like, different ways, like metal like turns. That's not a natural way for the brain
metal Thio with the crystal structure on the move so you can tell it's magical made and very. But there's nothing in any of your books that even remotely looks like the way the inside.
Okay, I think
I'm training conventional. All right.
Gonna try magically expand your library
like a bag of holding
like a pocket dimension.
Yeah, three option
Noah's pocket workshop pocket spot. Just
like no, but they were You thinking of options you didn't teach from some Oh, yeah, One of the library. Right pocket. Like role 10.
Okay, so you're researching and you go have any books upgrading poppy dimensions,
right. Was exclusively a transformation specialist so he doesn't have anything about pocket dimensions. But you go out and you go out into the hall said, and you go to a bookstore and find like, Oh, almost like the you know, dimensional Magic for Dummies book. So you you can have, like a small. You have a small understanding of how to approach that kind of magic. But even as you're reading it, you know it noticing that that kind of magic isn't well known to begin
David, what are the odds that I'd be able to find some
of your cells
from what you're seeing in this book, that is like a you know, like a little info graphic with like a little bubble being right there. Yeah, it's like we see you're interested in this, but the rest of the world doesn't know much about this either. So welcome to studying with everybody else.
I have to be like my equals, learning more about pocket dimension myself. Pocket library.
So now we're back at present time, and everyone's back in tree tower, and you couldn't decide what time of day this is. Really. One wanted to tell everybody about your discovery. Noon. There is No way you're gonna lead since you want. Okay. Greetings. Are you making this like an official meeting? How do you like that? Blown back by what you discover that. Let's all sit down. I've constructed a round table, and now we're all sitting at it. Yes. Yes. Okay. All right, everyone, very big news. Oh, um, what's nuts ever is? It ever is. Not sitting on it is you get older. Is is that I'm gonna rule
against him. I rolled in 11. Let us drink. Plus five girls 16. We'll be adding anything to
know, struggles to get out of Nick's turns on Does. And he's a little irritated. Me. Oh, you are that life anymore.
I want you out of my life
anyways. All right, Everyone being asked the last few months I've been screwed around the portals and I discovered that time moves faster in reverse world than it does in this world and that when you make a rifts, it'll be was a random within a mile radius. Just about
not many saying they used you opened into the same spot. It's just time to advance so much here that your tires on
if you want me to answer? I'm gonna say roll intelligence to see if you were just trying to think like that. I thought the first time I opened it. You said when I came back, there was nothing, and it was gone. So that's that's mean. I was in a different place. Yep. And then, the second time, he said the fires were far away. I could see the distance, you know, it was if that's what makes certain things,
that's everything. I'm still thinking it. Now, tonight. Really?
To you guys. When you open up, a rift is gonna be, like a mile a mile and 1/2 radius from the last point. But I didn't check to see if, like, if I move 10 feet to the right where I didn't check it, move 10 feet to the right. Where would I put my ribs? Where's your round table? Outside. Just like you. Okay, um,
I'll make every few years right now, and bigger is. Yeah. You ever see a second? Something? Your
horses. I do not think you should since it Gil messenger comes over. Says how you
you go to open the rift and your stone Just starts vibrating and don't open it. You know, you make the correct. You know
what that means. Someone else is there. There's someone is spying on us.
Our baby. Somebody's something's in the way of my wrist. All right. So I tried to make a roof. Nothing happens. That was weird. I'll see you guys later. But first I will say
nothing is all I learned. Also, there's
no creatures in the world. My entire point was to try and tame one so we could slaughter our enemies. There was nothing spent like a month. You sound almost two full months in the older Now. My two months? Yeah. I'm holding this roundtable. Biggest now I am senior to you all passing my old man was no you You are,
like, visibly older, like us
know. Maybe he has
a few more gray hairs.
How is that? Any time we're gonna I don't like you. Don't
feel like you're that much older. So So something different happening because if you spent two months in there and your current assumption is that it's at least two hours faster. But you don't feel as old as you should. I like doing that mental math. You're like, something's not adding up here. I also want to know that I tried to open another rifts inside of the world and it started to close the rift behind these. That's why
I didn't do that. But I kind
of want to try it involved.
You guys were all together. Now
that I know what age is, you don't know that you really Yeah, gives him. She's gonna die before we get out. Well, regardless, that's what I learned
about the rifts. And, um, yeah, I'm sure you guys the rift. No, she's guys. So you guys go toe build an ex turns room, and I'm gonna have your row. Perceptive.
Yeah. Six. Wait. No perception
in what? So Lara, you know, it's like when he was doing that presentation like you can not like, visibly saw his hand. Shapley. He probably sounds like a little bit of home from on the British oak and do work. And, um, you notice that it's not just shaking every once in a while anymore, but everyone's allows swings his hand back. You could see that it almost like lips like it's like turning on the light starts flowing pointed
out. Hey, look yet, Lars, losing your mind. Wait, What? You say you're thinking Adriana Flower? Yes. I
mean, before, as you're looking at it again, you can feel the vibrations seem like they're coming from your
actions. Is a blip stronger in a certain direction?
Let's just by reading
next, stick your arm in that direction.
So take a slow 360. You tell me when it's so you're doing that, uh, as you're doing it, you're go around like this way is really strong, and then you'll start walking that way you'll never feel get in return. It's like, Oh, that was really strong. Let's keep walking, you don't feel and you stand still and even standing still after you decide that's down. It pulses in that it doesn't for a long time, and that pulses again. It doesn't for a long time, and it seems to be vibrating in different directions. If anything, what you're feeling almost feels like. Something is hitting the ring and even and hitting the ring and even like it almost feels like an impact rather than internal things were ever planning to marry.
Oh, good. So I try and
open up a rip, then the river monsters will probably be there. So should I open it? No. So something. Actually, some someone for everyone. Roll history. That was them 2014. So everything so marry you. Get that money So you instantly like when he kind of is like, thinking about the rebound. I'm assuming you mutter something, or at least say something about the rebounding. Um, when you're thinking about that, you immediately look to the sky because every time you guys have seen creature rebounding, the alarm has gone off the nest. That and the alarm is, if you remember, is like this giant cloud of like yellow smoke. The Cuyler covers, like most of the size. That's like the fires that they like. There's
nothing. So the beautiful hands notices. But how does the Guildhall notes the other? Uh, I think you were determined.
You've never looked into that. All right, that room, Everyone run. Yep. Go
Remember. He's not,
Is he is. He is my lover. I think the road that it's like a road at least our tree, right? Yeah, there's there's like one like there's, like, some trails that us play explored in Isaac. Did you build like a gate to our thing. I think you guys just had enough material and time to make that expense lot should be posted. Musical art. Lover Probably. Yeah. Go stand guard.
Never does she know anything? Wants another in? She
doesn't know why you keep calling her a whale.
She isn't. Well, she's a literal Well, this ButI know anything
that's going on with the ring
on the whale? Is that what you're talking about? Yeah. Okay.
Is that what you're doing? Great. Okay. What are you asking?
Do you know this?
She looks at it and doesn't. Doesn't 100. Doesn't really know. Like you guys haven't informed period of what the ring does. Check this out
and try and make it. Okay, you open. So the
rift is open, and you immediately noticed there's something very wrong. Uh, because when every time you've opened it before and every time you've seen a riff before, you can see like that weird, like, really sterile landscape. This time there's just It's so like, you know, that wavy like exterior thing that it makes when you open the rift to see that it is, it looks like someone just like dragged that way. Venus forever. Oh, that. So I'm next lose that Jesus. Flabbergasted. She like I I don't I don't know. I don't I don't think I've seen anything like this. This issue must be celestial. You
guys use less happens. She's
elemental. Just I asked Isaac. Never. So wait. Your person. Zegna? Yeah,
I've been okay. She left you guys a note saying vaccine, You could find out if she's who Zegna. Our as ours, Laura. But
you have to.
I didn't put a lot of people in my Isaac ever bodies. And you in it. He'll start. I love hanging out with mud. Hey, I
forgot to write down
syndicate. So now I will. Most of Sonam Shay were the people that you found in the rabbit area that were also being held prisoner with where they weren't with his any wasn't like a high security spot. And they were just kind of business. So you're asking, is it? Isaac says that he's seen rips open before, but never like this. So, like, he's he's running trips before because, like, five he had he had a guild at one point, But they all died to the Bali logs there, guys, do you
think it through? I know
he was your first recruit. He was the first.
What is wrong with you? I want to find out what's going on. If we put somebody in there, I open.
My best guess is that that will just glasses. Maybe. And that's why it's just like darkness and why everything was gone.
Theo, something I'll
give you guys. Just recap. What you know right now from what's going on is you know that the rain is doing some sort of pulsing. It seems like it's might be directional, but it seems really inconsistent. And you also know that you just open this up.
Q. We throw something in Amon, and
you also know that the national guilt I have no idea what
I say doing. How about we throw something in animal and unlike, be killed in their first and wait like 10 minutes and make sure it doesn't like crushed during that time passes. Still, when the rift is open, when you have a little bit right, so like 10 minutes and there is like 30 minutes or 10 minutes up here is like 30 minutes. Okay, it's a commissioner like Rocky Shore right along the inner
quarters, in case
Okay. Sure. Yeah. Real
Yes. Also could tell any of your
Oh, yeah. You don't like
it? Leave it. Leave a note for them to find their all kind of standing around, except for an analyst. 9 11 Moses. Now. Okay. You have not talked that way.
Put the flour in close. It really happens, all right? Because you close it might somewhere out speak enough. No, she's not. She's not coming. Way for them to stay here so that anything happened to us.
This is a celestial being. She is. This is a noble
family, not her normal sized body. You
haven't given me time to answer that question. How long does a little
you know, I'm a little Wait, as long as it takes an hour
shift. Interesting. And it's not that law, I think. I think I
OK, so one hour passes. Two hours pass. Anyone leaving? Come here.
I'm gonna practice.
Does anything happen? Not yet.
I e t o say
nothing is gonna happen. Then it gives it away. What?
want you to go with what we have
while we're gonna close and open.
So close it now.
Wait, wait, wait.
Yes. Eso Yes, you guys, wait another hour. Nothing happens. Didn't he have a plan? No. All right. Still, I guess largely was still on the way to watch the flower.
Nothing happens. Wait, How confident are we that we can get back?
Not that I didn't try to close. If I opened another rips while inside Earth world the one behind closed
So we'll just not up. What? Is there other people in there? I say we go in. I didn't have a gust. Which the trip and Blue flower Sensing a way for me just to make sure nothing else that
you're pushing people. You really want these spells lot to do that key and trails can trip. Okay, I now could
be useful to, but I just push the flower 10 feet down the tunnel.
Okay, so you push the flower. Nothing happens if it sounds like everyone wants to go in other than Lara, this
terrible is if
you I want to watch the flour for another hour. It sounds like you're gonna have to do like a charisma check against them, not to
Well, Now that
I've pushed it farther, anything that's happened sign. Okay? No, You know what? I'm time being last season. Maybe.
So you've got things all
die. I last him first. Anything really should. He happens and you guys go in.
They're bringing any of the others with you. Are you leaving him?
Carry on our legacy Carry on your legacy. Do they have
any cool gets to know is a narrow tunnel that we have to be alive. However big you made it is how big it is. Big. You guys
can edit it now,
Like paintings. We know we can begin to say that. However you made it like Well, well, Bret, I just I guess I just needed regular. So you don't like you is enough to walk single file. You
guys see anything? It's not
like a tight single file like you're very large. So, like, it might be kind of tight for you, but for no one else. But you guys can't see past Yeah, because I'm first.
Yeah. So that means anything like this.
So should I go
Everyone's that next. First? Yes. Okay. So you walk in and upon be in the tongue. It's like not being in the town like originally. It looked like it was just kind of like that. You'd be like material that's the edge of edges of the wrist looked like. But the tunnel itself, So like the walls, the walls, air stretching. Why
in stretching, lighting
up like a certain point like touched the ball is something I can feel it moving and one hander notes. You can feel the ring pulling in the directions that I say directions. But this seems like a straight tunnel. But when you put your hand that has the ring on it on all, it feels like maybe there's another direction. Okay, I'm gonna relay that information. I don't know where they are. Guys, I can't tell what way is straight
way. Can't see any other way. So don't try to move forward. Let's just keep trick it. I'm gonna turn around and look to see. Probably chase. Okay, I have a good idea. Is it dark? It's hard to see your
proceed. All it's that right, like is not right so overwhelming. It's like natural light, purplish blue stuff. It looks like the
should use some of our road and all hold on to it so we don't get separated somehow. You know what? Let's drift. Yeah, who gives a really tight But that only allows by 50 feet. We all have 50 beats. 200 feet. That's not very far. Create magically
she Come on. Can't you do anything? Sex? She was like a genie. Yeah, really gets the less you. Yeah. You guys grab friendship? Yeah, she's trapped
forever. If you just living a normal life.
Yeah, just garbage. Yes, I are
we doing this If we don't get separated so we can find a way back
like you were pining for both, but doesn't sound like
before. Just not be separation.
Yeah, because, I mean, if there is a tunnel there No, I can't really tell which way. Straight, Mike get lost. So, yes. So just just to be clear, you're eyes only. See, you put your hand on the wall. You feel like there's a hole from another direction Through. Go through the wall. I moved towards the wall. Do you go see? Oh, Okay. All right. I don't see anything in front of me, right? It's just It's just all right. I feel some weird Cool. I know my rights. Yeah, I'm trying. All right, Uh, and you put your hand. How do you go through the wall? Well, I'm gonna feel where the pulse is, like a white whatever. Direction as you do a new branch of the hall,
you should turn around and try to do it on the other side.
Yeah. Can I turn on this, little honey? Yeah. So? So I'm gonna actually see where the strongest vibrations. Yeah. So you were the strongest rules. Find out. Differentiated. Okay, 14 yet short. So you could find the strongest pulse. Okay, So I'm telling you, I'm trying to be the strongest pulse, and we're going that way. Yeah, and it's not down the tunnel. That was It's often Teoh. One word. You guys. You guys going? I'm running, He's running. So as you guys are running along,
let's behind that way. I'm never gonna know I was
Oh, wait. Do you write about 50? You wait,
I e I remember general layout stuff. Okay, look really good. I can also create Doesn't charge. Yeah, I chanced apology that for about pants until forces saying probably left him out so
I'm missing you, like Discover. Does anybody have a night? I
Can you, like, mark the wall and see if you
solid cool? Yeah.
How you figure? No, Mark. Mark Wallace even getting like,
yeah, if she could work nice.
Can you? Yeah. Then I just kind of like this.
Okay, um, have a future. That's palm, sire. I'm just gonna at the intersection. I'm just gonna train a bonfire. Just leave it like I'm gonna start marking intersections. Fires.
So whenever whenever we make a turn, make a bonfire.
Yeah, and make it from the so I'm gonna make it sitting in the direction you came from. So, like we went, we took up, right? Right. So it f or coming to like what? You turn around in the left tunnel. You see the bonfire to write marking that? That's the way
it's like walking
right. The bonfires were right in front of where we have to go.
Okay. So you have to cross
over the bonfires to go back, because otherwise it's just talking bonfire,
right? There's also not really like an intersection like udacity terms. You're not like you're not like finding other roses they open up. You're just following. Next turn one single. So? So the only time will be an intersection. Is it? For some reason, next turn overlaps ism. So you leased that at the entrance area when you first walk in his next year. Exterminated right and left. There was There's intersection. Definitely.
Yeah. So I marked it so that we know now. Sure. How about it? Like a walk, not a Hello spring, New York. Do perception check.
Yeah, I didn't think about that.
I will say that you're receiving as you guys are walking. Yes, I like it. This, like, all almost kind of feels like water. That's what doesn't. It just feels like you're running your fingers through the water, but there's no love particles or anything English. So you you're 16. So you guys were walking. You're receiving Probably to your sides. Can't really seeking car passed next turn. Looking around trying. Probably also assume you're also touching walls. Just tryingto figure anything, and eventually you decide to walk backwards and see that the walls are closing in.
No, no, no.
So there is no path back. It's It's something that a certain amount of feet that the walls just have and
can't see You guys are running in a straight line. Dexterously. You
finding that the strongest there is no going back now. Something street. I don't I don't know. I don't deserve it. You
run faster. No,
you guys. What if we just murder him here? No one will ever
I will eat the ring.
Just a way
to destroy the ring before you. Murphy. Oh, way
back is still there. We just don't know which way to go.
because you're running like a madman.
No. Do you know, like like I'm feeling the vibrations? She's like this'll. I accepted your deciding that you're going to live after we're going. Tell us, Father, do we have to go?
I know you guys are going to anyone else or do anything in this
way transported to space
so no one's doing anything different. Jesus. Just nagging in the back and you're just like you guys. Okay? This is happening. Yeah.
Haven't you got so far away? I don't know
how far back was
closing from next.
Probably like 500 feet. Okay, so you has been gradually follow in next picks up his pace and then next turn. Just trips.
Wait. You have a role for that?
No trips and falls through a rip sick. And you're now on top of a mountain. So, like so I'm on top of the moment. Are they, like, above me
Yeah. Yeah, it was like, Yep. So everyone falls just a little bit, but definitely on top of Nick Stern. He
should have to be. Yeah, I just wanted to die. I'm gonna check my race. You would
never give that up for
you, right? You guys are on top of a mountain and you're outside, and there's definitely like a rift by you. Is it like our world? Yes, it is a little world,
right? This works open is casually open.
As you're observing, that is, you get up and turn around looking like, Yeah, there is a rift there. You start noticing all these other riff Start popping up as your have you someone do it
So I'm just definitely the water notices first. But you didn't see Yes, our stead. And you can see how instead and you can see it instead. But you can see all three of the major kingdoms from this point on the mountain and overhaul. Instead, you see a large plume of reds start coming from the national. Has all these rifts started? You've never seen
it. Must have been.
Yeah, probably. So red is just a high alert level. And as far as you were told, they kind of lost over what exactly red means, because it's never happened.
So what's yellow?
Yellow was like, more like this is a normal amount of Chris Fend as you're looking around riffs or just dotting the countryside. Research? No, Just like as you're looking down like you're there's your rift that you just came out of the wrist closing above us. Open a bar in front of us. So you close the one of you and a monster tries to get out of it and kind of like, cut it in half in a little one of those blue. Those stones like balls. No, not like it's the ones that you exchange like you open another riffs is another time.
What if we What if we went through? I tried to tell in the direction of the Guild hall waken measure where we were first affair be enough if we just go in a straight line. That's true. We were going to twist. He's go
in a straight line. How do you know what a straight line is? You know
you can't walk a straight line, right? No, you can't. You can't. What that was proven on this bus is if you try and walk straight in any sort of like unfamiliar terrain, you will walk in spirals. It is a military too. That's how we do it.
I have a map and a compass. What did you do
that thing? Where you like. You look at a tree?
Yeah, basically, we have to do. But since we're in a tunnel, not for long distances,
why go like, runs our seats and see where we end up? Okay. Not like go the whole fucking leg. I'm in. No, I want to see if, like distance is different in there too.
My only concern now is if we're on the top of my feet now. 100 feet in the year. That way.
No way. No way.
We're on the ground and you fell down. Not for no far, but you still fell down. Way Live would not have been a higher altitude.
This is, if anything, it may have described three. Power is being about s O. Any objections is right. You're opening a rift. Open up arrests, and then we're all gonna go feet straight. Yep. So we can still see the portal behind us. That's gonna be our point of reference.
What if we're only going in the yard under feet? What if we laid the road behind us? Talked like, tie the rope to like, is there anything on up there with us? Like a
like a stumper
s. So, what have we tied it to? A stop? Walk the 100 yards with the road. Who's airport up and open a portal Because the portable. Yeah,
well, just feet. Using the back portal is a reference to watch Street Never open up another one of rivals. You're opening one. Yeah, right. You do that. And when you open up this portal, you are in the space, not the road where
like two. Six slows your other
Wait in space.
No, no tunnel world is separate from Griff Space.
What the fuck have you done? What if we
don't River rolled out? Try again. Close
it. Walk a couple more feet in the dragon. That rift
will go into
from Rift World. Where was the first way solved? How did we saw from Tunnel World into our world?
He never opened a rift. He found open rift.
This is a ring.
I'm doing this with their bottles because we have
opened risks from riffle into real world.
No, you have a thing. Do you want this? I want a role, like with number Intelligence or
something. So I
can tell you something that you guys already experienced. Okay, that's definitely
I got a 19 flush. Three up.
Enough. So you, as at least you two since you were into that role, if someone else lost it also have, like a So you two immediately remember that you could only close riffs from the way they were. So whichever direction you put together that you have now closed or opened a rift from inside and your world's rift has been closed. Yeah, that's all. That's all we'll give you traps? No, just r r ripped his clothes. And now wherever. All
right, where are we? Really?
So when you try when you tried Thio When you guys were in the pit the first time and you tried to close the portal from the outside, you could you could only get close from beans. Decided was me the world of decided
really world Rick World Open it here to go into ref world only close it out here also.
But next turn opened another rift and the rift behind you guys did close
open rest in tunnel world Is that this one closed?
So you so you guys opened a rift to tunnel world right in the tunnel area. Next turn opened another rift and what I described next and during his time off was if he opens a rift, it closes the one that he opened originally, you could only make one rift in time, Right? Rich aren't supposed to close from another direction, others
and the way
so it is really special. But he didn't create the other second rift that we fell through.
No, he just created this
whole just created this. So what? We're in our world? No, that goes against So way were on the mouth. Open it Now it's a little like the 100 feet be opened Another one And so now?
Yes, and we're
world, but we can't get back to our
Well, Well, I mean, I should to make another portal
feel like stealing from Rift World Lighter.
So what happened? What is if you open? Yes. So you're realizing that all that the rips from Rift World your world, you open a rift in risk world, it will go to your world and it cannot be closed except from
well, he opens another one.
Right, That's all. That's all I need to
have. You guys know Everyone go back to our
world. This doesn't exist. Thank you. My heart dropped next. So this is a big thing. I literally just scrap the rest.
Because the time is
different Now we're We're off the relativity where we are now is passing time wise. Significant. Why don't we So say this could be our power.
We could just wait out like two hours
and then get
the O or show up in the whole world. Theo Way. You said you worked really hard on This is way. Fucking thing. One thing I didn't
plan for and that was for you actually closed opening a new river from
you totally could have just
glossed over it. No, I
just wanted you guys to think about it.
Well, it's too fucking light, you know, it's it's like a really good
idea when you said it like, Well, maybe it'll be distance
relationship. You should have said something there. I just see a little disappointment on your flight. It's stress in your body weight. We realize that
the one went to a restaurant. We needed the over another one horrible way saying that we should just stay out of character. I feel like we would be like, Oh, shit world,
Look around. What's around this? Well, do you think about our timelines? I don't think
we should just get our world.
It's a lot of character
we've only been in, like, it's only
the closed for very like it.
So So just so you know. Well, Lara, atrial are the only ones having this, like, eureka moment right now, So they have to decide how they're going to relay this information.
I'm gonna immediately tell them because I need to get back to the real world. Yeah,
Yeah. My life is over.
So yeah, time in. There are monsters at free
wait time out, wouldn't we?
So just, like always understanding, like, two sets. So, like we're in the tunnel, I don't make it natural, cause Yeah, but now that we're basically
first portal that opened
that he erased by opening another one when that one closed. I'm saying you guys at a body because you were in that world and that you had remembered you remembered being in the pit and not being able to close things from different directions. Okay, so we'll get described to you with the round table meeting. What happened when he went to try and open a portal in the rift that has started closed? That is way up.
Certain clothes. Okay, wait here. If we go through this one. Oh, good one. Really quick. From where we are in, Rift World goes through it. Open a new one from our world to whatever's next. We'll close one behind us. Yeah, way immediately.
Close that one from the side. It was a
bit were hypothetically in the clear. Right.
So I get good enough. Maybe we will, too. Streets just open the tunnel
from tunnel world to reform. We realize that we that were in the wrong place, right? Bunched up, run through. They have next turn over a new one from wrist worlds Our world So we were were in Rift World. Now we'll know 10 you could be having gone through it We're still intelligible looking out looking at So we stay and no go through rest ueno the portals from rest open into our world Our world currently opens it to total other options So this is gonna be good. Yeah, like
it's just a video So
but then we have an open rift are right So you usually open a new one when we are in all to the next. Whatever. And then immediately close it again because we're closing in front of the way.
Are you ready? Yeah. Time and explain to that
way. Have to close. You
refer to it. We're going into the world,
you know, way back from way. We all sweet, You explain. We open in risk
because we can't get back on track forever.
There are no open portals. No, I could not
explain to me what you got.
So I hate this. So you're since we can only is if it can on Lee close riffs on the side that they're made from. We have now cut off our access to our world So we have to somehow will open a portal in giraffe Being rich world goes through a living another Why open another one in to run our world and then open another one into town A roll from our world to close the one The floor's the monsters s So it's gonna have to be there's Yeah, really
No, You do it
because we're losing so much time. We're agents wear not aging. Well, we are world aging. No, we're not agent. No
time. Who's faster here? They would have been older than next.
Er, it's relativity. It's relativity. So that where we are the time we're not ageing quicker. But the time that we're here relative to where
top of the timeline on air world is different. But we're not aging faster. Have you seen any interstellar? Well, then how come he said when he said two months in the day, he looked older. You're aging faster. So
you're just doing it So you do it. We're doing it. We're doing it. You go through. We
jumped into the river rolls loss ever making.
It does open back to the regular work. You open another one, you open. So you open the other one. Yeah, and that stays open. And I have two ports.
Eyes. What is wrong with you? Why? All right,
well, now there's monsters behind this and this poor right here. I'm gonna close this portal in front of us. The So just so your original plan, Liz, you're gonna make a portal out. Yeah, make a portal and hope that one closes and then close this one. This one stayed open in this one.
Maybe it's 1/4 portal. Her worlders may be okay, but we're on our road. Yeah, proceed it. See what? The world. Our world. What it looks like
I want to be like in the middle of the woods. Yeah. Where's the mountain? How far do you want to have gone?
I just want Eo. If distance is different, I
more than 100 seats. What? You find it
more interesting? If it was different, not different. Would you find that this is what I planned? It would be more interesting.
No, I feel
like it would be easier since
same distance failed. So, like the basement? Yeah. Yeah, you can see that. There's, like, battles, like starting your summers. Okay, closing fast. Shoot. Okay, here's what I want to do. Let me stick my hand in the portal, try closing it. Right. But obviously, I can't now my hand stuff like this. And then I was gonna make it really small. It's only re sizing. Okay, so you're gonna try and do that
or what you're making us.
So you're you're making this. So, like your bull portal Small. There's only one portal behind that's possible right now. So we're saying that you guys came out and are facing There was a portal here. You try. Just make another portal's. We're just gonna say the right thing so that this one goes to monster rib world and this one is what they both go to monster. Okay, so I'm gonna try and close the one that I made just now in our world. Okay. So close. Yeah. All right. Now, whatever, you I put
into this rip and then try and close it like that, but then I obviously can't close it all the way here is like this? Yeah, maybe Like this. Okay,
why don't you just make it one finger size weight? Question go. Why don't we do what we did before we went through One closed it from the inside. Came back out. Clothes that one. Forget how he
did that. So you back in the pit. If you open the rest, went in, closed the already open rift and came back out and then closed.
Yes. Why don't we just do that again?
You go do that again. This guy. So you make you say it into the little small. So you walk through your portal that you created from your world from station. You walk through that portal and start to close the wondrous world and your
way before. No, You don't know. I
don't know your characters do not. No, I'm not. Should I know? Just pull this.
So you have
you. So you having close these? You saw it. Start closing itself and you stop. And then should I close this? You're about to be attacked. Do you think there's only one portal? It is just a small wow. I mean, sure, they have a pretty big thing. Yeah, All right. So what do we do? Guys, there are monsters trying to Lex, please, their way through. I'm
going out. Okay. Cokie,
they're getting hurt. She
Yes. Wait. It's like, right. We should just go.
It was red, but don't write you. So I could still use still, right?
I mean, that cloud of smoke coppers like most of this.
It's still red, though. So you didn't lose any time. Well, we may have lost a little bit of time, but not like
so should we just start getting over the whole thing?
well, as you're running, you guys are actually extreme. Farley, remember? You see, in this two piece from the tops of mountains, Yeah. So I'm knowing Shouldn't you get is to do, which is a perilous journey? Yes. So I'm basically what perils Yuri's. You guys have some amount of rations on you that you're going to have to make
last few days. So long, child. Love doesn't push.
No. So So this is this is the part that I was since I had can scrap some notes here. Just combine two different things that could have happened. This is the part I was telling you before finally like you might have been able to you start, but now
Oh, they're so promising. Quality time with my pet. You could
you could have spent most of dark, eh? So what's gonna happen is I'm gonna need you guys to pick someone who's going to be a Trailblazer. Some who's going to be a scalp and
someone who's going to be a quartermaster.
What's that? Travel is there.
So the Trailblazer he is the one who gets to decide how quick you guys make it. Two to your destination. The scout. Make sure that you guys don't get ambushed by anything on your way to your destination And the quartermaster. Make sure you have enough rations for interest. So
but I plus 10 stuff.
So one second, their stats associated with this
I can always remember. General
out of land can always find food and water while
you wait. I am a survivor in the woods.
So you know the rations. It was a rational. Okay, the Trail Blazers will roll. Intelligence still rules wisdom and the quartermaster Rolls Constitution. Not me. So
wait. Can you? What's constant charisma? Constitution? It
should. It's your house. Hello? No,
that's called Constitute. You have Constitution doubt a lot of under dexterity. My station's plus to minus all supposed to. Actually, my intelligence is plus four.
No, you find your
way out of the three Constitution wisdom In what intelligence? My intelligence is plus three guesses that size better.
Dex, strengthen charism.
I think I could take an argument for troubles of
Index because I'm, like,
really well living. You try. Awesome. If I do, um, your scout wouldn't you say that uses a lot of stealth and acrobatics?
Nope. It's just straight was
living anymore about seeing you around
you. But I'm not even doing like perception like this is just
going straight with him.
I was sorry, state it wasn't just You can't read it. My I don't have anything good except
intelligence of plus three. So So
you should. So the intelligence one was the Trailblazer, But I'm told Laura that she could give me that dexterity. Works for you. Well, there's three girls, right? Yeah, There's rules. There's gonna be more than so. This is gonna be a day's travel. And if you guys had dark, it would have been two days travel. You don't have dart
It's for travel. You're
gonna have to do this four times. Well,
then I just won't
do anything for this. I don't understand how we could have had dark in the first place,
but you could have not gone through the rift and just followed
the compass of the ring.
No, you didn't. I You
didn't open the portal and decided to follow the ring without going through the rift. You could have scrapped art done the perilous turn. That way.
I did not want to go through that fucking risk. All right,
so first things for this establish Elliot puts one. Intelligence is the 1st 1 you said you had. Plus two wisdom.
I trust you. All right,
Kindly you lose someone. Mary, what was your intelligence
was one plus three intelligence. So you have your costume
is too Will make this extra fun and said you can't do the same one twice in a row that way. Okay, So which one are you going?
I'm whatever the wisdom Waas, You're still okay. Mary is being and Nixon cooking. Rationing passion. Okay. One thing. No.
So we add Okay, failures. Would you? I'm probably too. It's considered a failure
Okay, so on a 15 the Trailblazer takes a normal day. So you did you one day's travel. See, only three days away from the the place you have a whole group is a long three days away from the national. After a full day, there are still riffs. Open this, guys. Okay, so next we'll do food. Eso You failed, right? Yeah. Okay, so, you guys, you overfeed a day's ration. So now you have one less day of rations, so you only have two days of rations for a three day trip
hoops, and then you have a nice meal
this time. And then the last one is scout, which was tightly rate. Okay. You think everything is going fine and that you kept a watchful eye on and deals as your trail blazing? Uh, Lara doesn't notice that there's in, unquote, you don't actually see it, but there's a monster that this conference sideswipes you when you guys just see a purplish blue creature that is about twice the size of Nixon.
Just knock age real to the side. She's bleeding. Really? Don't you damage? Yeah, because on this expedition,
we've killed rift monsters before. For the most part. Smallest.
Did I see it coming? No. You should use sticks.
Oh, I'm trying to script, See if I want describe it. It was just kind of a big mass right now.
This is It's hard to tell. It's
way. Just try toe. I think this is right. Let's just book it. But then we're all just be really unfortunate if we get hurt by it. Yeah, it is. It's like attention on us. Yes. Can I play
my phone and try to, like, make it
really distracted? Nothing short. Yeah, district. It's lucky I love my mom. Oh, no. Play. Nice to know you are able to distract our way. Okay, so now you're
on, like two of your perilous turn. Who will do it? Rolled? You cannot do the same room is just
randomly assign. Wow,
This is the same sets. Get the same stats I take. I'll take arguments for each one. My intelligence was himself, so I'll
do the decks, right? You know you wouldn't let me do that.
I literally said that you could do that. You said it was your intelligence.
You said Laura could use dexterity for scouting.
Know anyone could. I said I could.
Do you think there's any way you want?
If anything again, wreck on it and say that the reason that Laura can use Dex instead is because she has the notary?
That's true way were nomadic. So, like it makes sense that I could really write Ugo I Constitution Is this one? No intelligence, all of us. One.
Did you really do for some ground? So we had a quartermaster and Lara a little oily. What are you doing? Trailblazer, she asked.
You can probably row Hell, you 15. Okay, okay.
So you're pleasing. Yes. 16.
So you reduce the number of days travel, but so you guys will get there on your next journey.
16. 16. We did not eat all the right
amount of Russians and you've got a 15. So as you're going, you notice there is a group of There's another guild that is currently trying to fight off um rift monsters coming out of there ifs You can tell everybody about this
and you can decide what you want then yes,
I say that we should
go around going
last day is really starting. All right. Last a seam. Same stuff. No, you have to switch it up. Yeah, well, I mean, my prostitution is, too. That's the only visitor. Only victory. Sure. Any nice. All right, that was your
intelligence. Plus three was already did the wisdom one.
Ooh, but my intelligence is one of my wisdom is zero,
I think lets it out. Because my only other one that I have this constitution, which is minus one, I could do Constitution excited. Okay, So they didn't. You do? I did this getting already. So I guess I
have to do a trailblazing, Which is
that intelligence? Is that the one that could be just there in your house,
I think. Did we just decide that I've got a guy dexterity because of her?
Is that stripping and Fuzeon? All right,
then I guess I'll do what I did. Just roll, please.
Yeah, she's okay. Then I will do wisdom. Wisdom for zero. I already did. All
right, so that I am
OK, but my only
one is either intelligence or wisdom. But Kylie already did. Was yeah, her intelligence has hired in mind. My
intelligence is a wonderful way to do it. Okay, 17
eso. Okay, so I noticed that someone from from what? You could see the first paradigm spot you or is about to spot first Paradigm cuts ahead. Kind of often there's a first paradigm that's off the side of us. And there is there, like, about to turn and spot you guys.
And that would
be no need to say,
Well, no, because it would be bad. Could be killed
as we were going to do. Um, I don't remember. C I yes, just one. No, no, but we shouldn't know that Sneak up on you. I guess she just call up in the distance. Or can I like, pause nine
and see what happens?
Wait. Do we really want to say
Well, he said that he's about to turn around noticing that's anyways so,
like, I might as well just call out to
I mean, you could you could prevent him from noticing you guys if you like, take a sharp turn. Oh, should be away. First paradigm. I guess
that's just like the main way. Shouldn't avoid that. Might get information. That's way. Yo, yo, yo,
yo, Yo, what were the other ones again?
Trailblazer and, uh, quartermaster. Okay, so normal did get normal reactions. Normal time. So you were basically there because it's it is only one more days. Yeah. So you're That's what he said. Yeah, like, you know, like, right over here. It's in the distance, but not a day's travel. Yes. So you're no longer in your parentless. Oh, So you're showing up to the first paradigm, Yo. Yeah, exactly that. Okay, Exactly. You should out and they turn around. And this is someone who's extremely recognized it. Because she is one of the officers of the first paradigm. The guilt leeches off her
hair. Is it our car keys? No, it's not.
What do you know? I only told you. The first guy, the one that you hate so much is named Dorian. Yeah, ee. Yeah. I didn't tell you anything. Names like there are, like statues of them through populistic. So, like of the five breaking guild members. And this is Laura Stina. Sand sock. She's She's a dragon born. She's like this really deep purple color. And she wears this like silver and gold plated armor. You say? What a purple suck. Suck. Yeah, She used one of the leaders of She's one of the first officers of the first things first. And she's just like doing work toe like some of these roofs by yourself. Just like sleep. Everything she shows. How
many have you killed? Too
many to count. Well, get over here. There's more reps to close
that. They've been open.
What days? Where
it's It's been a long time. We've never had risks like this before. I
was doing When did they open? They opened a week ago through the last two days. No. Lost for three days, right?
Yeah. Traveled three days.
Well, four days. Yeah.
Last one. Okay, closes again. Excuse me. I just just give you a
refresher. She just says, Like like this. And she takes, like, turned to that thing that she uses like these she uses too long. So it's not what you are. She doesn't like, say, like, like this. But she
gives you a look. Like
Washington learned anything. Like she's enjoying herself along with me
to the oh, she she just like hills.
Like five or six creatures at ST Licking. Once on, then you don't
know she's very strong. Just six
boulder long stores and just kind of, like slices across like a next. And yes, it just plows right through these creatures. They're always there, like, mid jump Look about to get hurt. And they'd just all cut in half and disintegrate into those little drop it
skip somewhere. I'm hoping she she what is this Terror? You have three
win. So, yeah, she kills them and must've been, like, the last of that riff, and it closes. And as that one closes, two more
way should help you should. I think we should help. Because if we get in trouble with the guilt for not being there, when they gave up things, you could be like we were on our way because over super far away Yeah, yeah, she'll get out.
You could say that. You guys have, like, an extra stone for you Just tryingto kill a little gas popping out of that little need. Yeah, sure. Just
like we were. You know, we were doing some like, we're bonding Guild bonding on the mountain. Like you.
I'm gonna say something is you have never not been able to see the Reds.
No saying like that's why it took us so long to get back. Okay. Is that we were on the other side of that, Do whatever works, trust. We saw that in. Like by the time the red smoke got there, we were immediately broke and came back. But it still has a long time because we're so far away. You didn't go to Yale tall because she told us
she hasn't paid attention to like any of this. She was just fighting those tour up those humorous?
Yeah, we're, like, huddling Public way should help. All right, over and like, I mean, it's not like
So you guys say to help. Yes, the second you guys start like and that she didn't get close up to that next trip to riffs over me
eyes distracted. Yeah.
No use fighting you guys this way. Okay?
Any animal at all? Ever? Well, it has to be below challenge Rating. Yeah. You
below your challenge. Greeting. They are
really I I don't know. Where is it?
Must let me see. They're Children.
Damn it. I just thought of the biggest. Well, what's the challenge training you do Unless there's a reporter into it. You're drew level divided by three three. So it goes down too.
I mean, a real is only half the aschen grating. I kind of think what else? It could be
draft horse. I was just thinking of a creature to block him was really. But
I mean, a draft horse is only 1/4 draft. Horses are pretty big gears up to a big course. You like a Clydesdale? Wasn't Alice or that's a dinosaur. That actually two or less.
You did that, too, is it? It's a large.
That's weird because it considers a draft horse to be harder. You're on a large beast.
I can also become an ambush streak. But that's from the border dragging. You
know, we're doing
this thing doesn't filter. Yeah, and they just turn into a horse. You awake history? Oh, you wanna be? I'm just gonna join
into a bay horse.
Okay, big forces just blocking the view of Nick's turn.
Yes, I was blocking him.
Okay. You do nice. Okay? Yeah. One of one of the gems like falls when it closes on ice. And you doing another Jim Falls. Well, why don't we just keep walking around So, like I was like, stand to the right of way. Are you guys gonna do
that? That's, like, literally Okay, So I just realized
that uplink dog is 1/4 so
you could be
nice. I think it would be a running joke that ever so often I become him and person eight hands. So you never know. I
should tell you. You accept you will actually wear pants and not a sweater because you forget sometimes. Uh Sachi All right, you guys. Yes, you're just Just keep rolling and try not to get caught. Because the way I do this is you guys get in, hit someone to actually, you have to close it. If you're not getting rid of you're going be aiding by trying to be the draft horse. And I'm assuming you two will aid by trying to fight things that are coming out of the rifts. Okay, so So the main role is Lewis's, and you guys are adding a plus one. You see,
I I'm gonna change into a cave bear, which is also a large That kid like it's okay. Yeah.
So what, are we rolling? Going?
Yeah, we'll make the most sense. They're just trying to block his vision. for other people's vision dexterity. Just be quick about it, because is that 12 actually get 12? You two are just fighting. So you use whatever you need to fight
dexterity. Just 11.
I think all of you give a plus one. So if you ever get well, is it nine? Plus my dexterity? I guess it's just trying to quick so 10 11. So I know what you have in 11 plus three. So keen. So you close the risks. You
Are you going? There's a lot
of riffs, but he's left. Received were basic. Basically, What I'm doing is you guys can keep closing risks. As long as you keep succeeding, you fit. You'll have to do with Constance, and then you won't be able to close any more weight before.
How's that? He is. So basically it's way other failed. Our we fail in 500 turns. Yeah, what's
or we could just run. It's to go far. Yeah, where you could run the guild home. Just do that. Don't do that. I mean, the closed door.
that's true. We didn't help. Yeah. All right.
Hey, we goes. Four of them were gonna rent us the dildo
did your policy for? Is it? No. So it's like that implies that we have
control over it. Funny, because them just
say they close monsters and foreclose. Okay? She's still fighting. She closed her, too, but more of open. Okay, we're going to go all right. Doesn't mean there's, like, no real reason, Albert.
She's like she got statues and stuff. I feel like the cop like
consequence of someone much
higher loathe. Cost the pros and cons of this not laying out for me.
Waiting. Good enough? Yes. Now let's ditch. What were you doing at the polls? Say, there's, like, two more riffs that air, like right in your path area closer where you can receive to see around. Yeah. I mean, I'll give it to you. I'll say that there's no there's no one around all very busy fighting. You still have to do the like block thing,
just in case. I Kate, are you all right?
Yeah. Close 12. Okay.
the last two So six. 13 but plus three, right? Yeah.
Okay. You got a plus two. So your total working again? It's
more. That's like right in your pack. Explosive. You okay? So you close.
It knows that we feel bad things happen, and I want it feels equals
one purple lady. Can't fix the other one. Another drop.
I'm just carrying. All these bluestones
were gonna ditch that one. Getting North Island yet. Get off the road, Bends around it. Okay, so you guys get back to the guild hall. What do you say? You're Brokeback Mountain, and we just finally out here with situation. So the secretary is just like, losing her mind. Like a woman always gives you your little, like pamphlets or anything. And she starts like jumping. That usually here, like this is probably all you can handle, and she hands you five contracts. Um, it was easy closing Rex.
Okay. So, literally. All we need to do is close your wrists.
Yeah, I think Laura would probably the more intelligent You guys have five stones?
She only wants you to close fibers, so let's go outside. And this turned back around.
D'oh! You go. You're doing
I don't like this deception. Well, we're not starving. Oops. Yeah, You keep closing them
well when we already have five Still very close.
Right? But the world is going to
be overrun by these creatures.
We're trying t o decide. If we want Thio, give five blue Stones to prove that be closed Fibrous because the clerk to get all gave a spot on Max Those bricks like that or
I'm pretty sure the stones. I'm pretty sure it's a back and give her still she just That would be like,
Why don't we just go home, come back in like, a day or two out of five stones? It's
I think we should go close. Five more Keep sounds we have for analysis. Okay, now, that's true. Even though reacted analyzed it really fast. Does it go right?
might be, like, just hereafter.
Stokols more? Yes. How, like party disclosing ones, they're like, right around the guild hall. Or you're gonna go out and, like, go to like the specific ones that you have, like she has something like far away is what you kind of got because they like the first paradigm, has done a lot of the like keeping the Gill policy. So there's not many riffs on contract that are near just one. You too,
Well, I don't know
if they go to where we were supposed to close arrest and the arrest of not closed? I don't know. We didn't do it.
let's just close this. You? Yeah. Are you guys gonna close them the same way? Just bring it. Yes, but first, you basically will do the same thing. Hiding the fighting closely.
But it's like no one's around
in case there is someone around. Like the All these battles are happening like in the woods. Essentially, this'll really high risk. It is high risk. It's very high risk to keep doing the right thing. But but easy is
also bad. Because if we don't, then we're immutable. Run. But creatures, what's risky about it getting overrun or failing?
No. If you fail, something will have to click. Something will happen with the knowledge of you closing dress with a ring. You know, I know that, but if we fail closing one, people will find out.
So we're just deciding whether are
you going to fight The castle are gonna be fighting
the way that everyone else is, or you're gonna be taking advantage of your
Let's see if we fail, then people will most likely learn about that advantage
which we can use to our advantage. High yield status, more money.
also just pull in Iron Man and be like, Yeah, I know that people could become
No, I say yes, Right?
It's not If you eventually
okay Less. Let's just looking. But I don't like how many people are gonna fight. Fight a rift two. But he has. Do you want one tranquility? So let's there's too low.
worried. Yeah, I Yeah. Apparently I have way lower each bead on what I should have right now. Well, no, I think you really know what you should
have. Just how
much do you have
before? 56. That's very she is 80.
She is Constitution. Yeah. You have 84 fighter. You're a road. You don't get a lot.
Okay, so I was worried I'd do it since I was just, like, wait to do that every time she Yeah, right. Yeah. All right. Well, I'm gonna vote that we try to use the ring. Good. Let's do it once.
Okay, here we go. Unit for this is this is what happens when you can eight. Okay,
What secrets? Here.
I got this. I got six.
He didn't meet the 14. So I get paroled to find out if someone notices. No.
So you you close this one? Yeah. You drop it.
What are you gonna do now? Yep. We can go and play musically. We close five down and keep one for
experiment. But dare we say that if you don't close all I mean, she
did also, like, panic and just be, like, here. This is what I think you could close. What? Did you just say it? Yeah,
It's a long five gyms. What?
You wanna try one? One?
Press our luck Your way, please. 15.
No, you made it all right? Yes. You keep
rolling, Keep rolling. Well, but
like, it's how many will we have to kill before we satisfy? Wait three more. Okay. Yeah.
Huh? This 13. So I need you guys juices 40. Weight. It's close to you. You're good. Okay. You're you're solid.
Okay, two more. What if I What if we, like, set up a distraction for anyone? Area Way. Did that
turns? D'oh! Do you have a smoke bomb? I have a candle. What if you do one of those so we don't You? Yeah. Yeah. Can you roll?
This has a role to do. Father notices.
Rather see that the McCandles only have three ever. Actually only have to look
for one. We don't really have to roll up. Works at Marie's.
Yes. For the last. Yeah, just
get free. One way, one, everyone. Cool. Cool. Yeah, really close.
Is it cancer way
Go. 12 plus 2 14 So you guys close them and head back to the Guildhall, the turn of in gems. You guys are walking back up and start to see that there are other. It'll start to walk back, turn on some. You can kind of hear that. Like the flyers? Not as much. It seems like it's dying down. And like, everyone's hurting everyone around
like you're in pain. I just straight up. I didn't head
where you just perched on your shoulder
for days. E o. I literally didn't he come himself? Okay,
So as you're walking back, you see that the red smoke starts to recede. Yes, sir. Almost back in, I think I described the National People Hall of having like a big like courtyard those kind of like a bit in the middle, right? So you get back, you turn having turning in moves here, your stuff. You have all our Jimmy's, right? You have 10 toe. Five.
Wait. Yeah, I just gems Alpharma. Oh, my. Okay,
So as you guys are about Thio, give over your tokens. There's a bunch of people trying to give over to open so much different like secretaries. Like the collectors essentially said, those boots, that different level gets go to good, he's You look up and there's like, some light coming as like, the as the red receipts. And that's when everyone notices that the red is not receding because the color is like that. They're not burning that smoke getting or the readiness proceeding because there's a giant rift.
Hey, well, I think we're gonna run it like I want
you to be. Oh, wait,
no one. Here's how
it's above the game. You could pose a very
could you scale it,
it's just me, and I actually close it. Let's try
to understand, like
how, But it's probably above the building. Slam your fist into the building and parole broken wreckage and then
I think it's close enough. How close is it to the ceiling? Right where the roof racking actually do that move? It's, like, not too far above the roof, so I could maybe close
try. We'll let the first paradigm take care how big one size rating with Louis
Lucy Large? Because I think regular great people. So, like the margin? Yeah. So, like, regular people are medium like happening nose and Forbes or small And, uh, he's large.
Well, I'm trying to see if I could be something
that would carry me
You need to be a large the leader of the guild holes in copper who has
way all carry you like a big
way to negotiate with Peter.
As you guys were discussing, the rest of the first paradigm shows up. And that large dragon mom that you would see in the first trip you credit close starts coming down from the top. Okay, so it's either a scale a building and we close it or talk to the d
o give leader flies in the
air, fly me to the Rift
way of telling him. Either way, you're
you have this all right.
So I'm gonna run up to the guild leader. Let's say what You're right. There's a lot of people
just look for people with wings. Yeah,
Who's in news person
beside you Find people
I think. Yeah.
Okay. You know what, Carrie? Let's do it. You know, that is sure. I could just give you that.
I think we did that for Yeah,
I make you wings, right? I take my ring and close the rift. Yes. No
one heard that.
I whispered, you guys,
you guys were like, You think you're moving fast, But really, you guys are, like, panicking. And you're
you're not, like,
Not like we're still flustered around. There's a lot of people around. It's hard to move this fast, hoping Yeah, and you see Laura Steven again, just, like rush up to the front and start killing. Like everything that's coming. There's more than this is dragon Ma, but that's, like slow, sir.
Okay, well, I'm still gonna fly out there right now. Okay. What would be useful if I turned into something so late? I e tried to keep the monsters away from me. That was good.
I was gonna be to limit thumbs in the crab. So you're just acting a little bit for her.
I think she's gonna try. I'm trying Starts to, like, catch her if anything
s so you guys get up to the top and, like, some people are, like pointing and these smaller riff start opening around large one. So you guys go. You're, like, just about to use the ring to close the large one, and it shuts.
Oh, subtly. Stop. Excellent know, since I'm up there ready, I'm gonna look around to see if they all
they're all shut it. Yeah, okay. They there were definitely some creatures. Like, as you guys were on the way up. So it didn't look like you guys were also said, You come back down and everyone's just kind of sitting around. Now the old give falls like a triage center. This actually is everyone's very beat up. And you guys go turning your, uh, yourself. Yes,
I you know what do you guys think That the Dragon lady
is doing this for opening yourself so she could close.
We were getting close.
Well, first, maybe. Yeah, that's probably true. First paradigm, I don't think they're like Yeah, Ginny. Because they can lie close. All of them in this was
there when they first, they're always there.
So they probably
do know how to control the ribs. Superstition?
Yeah, but how did they have they closed? Maybe she has also, but she would have had to spend. Maybe she just as
well we'll turn in our stuff, right? Talks leaked gems do this month. Okay, so you do. And they give you, give you the points that you actually give you double, because that was a red alert. You know that? It's double. That's the last time you guys turned in when you got five points or 18. 19. He was like, Yeah, we'll go with you. Five points every time you close a rich. So she was Waas Michael. So that's 20 100. You guys are under guilt console
split between the four of us. We want to split five ways, but
wait, what? Did you do? The math. Yeah, and you know, so it's too much because you close five riffs. So there's four of you times five riffs. This funny has five coins is 100 times too for red alert is to under 25. There are four of you.
Yeah, well, those fibers explain. I was doing it
for getting 200 round. We each take 25 field coincident with the other 100. Yeah, Yeah. Then
37 wait, Other 100. And the things you know, joint
accounts. No. You want me? Oh, I bought the heroin.
Yes, you desire.
I was speaking with 10.
I would like Thio talk to Claire
in exchange. Wait,
you? 50. Thanks. And I think collectively you guys also hear
something fresh for being. I've seen Greece.
I have updated all here,
you know? Yeah, I e
so literacy machine here. You want toc? Laura Stina. You see, she's also just kind of relaxing. She's not nearly as she's still pretty beat up like he's got a bomb.
I flex my muscles result contest each other first. Okay. Well,
um, charisma is minus one, so I'm gonna do intimidation.
Okay. Intimidate Thio. Harold. Uh, 18. It is my time to show your go posing. Blistering 19. Don't you have a husband flexing my
boots? She'll murder you. You were You were the ones that I saw out there. Weren't you? A little in there take it. Yeah, well, no. But you seem to have held your own a little bit, so
I don't t o there.
What did you guys? There was something you guys said. Now I'm regretting Forget it. You said something first, right?
I mean, that's like that.
No, you guys mentioned that you only that that you had already closed much to her. Yes, I was exaggerating. You did? So she mentioned that you already closing budge, and she noticed that you only turned into five. Yes,
way enclosed a lost.
Yeah, he did. Now, just admitting that I was I didn't want to see we weren't doing much. We're just She mentions the sea you briefly and you're still flirting with her? Yes, yourself. So she kind of the struggles and puts her hand on her shoulder and, um huh, her shoulder and goes and whispers in your ear. She was using your some of us in Aerodyne We're watching what you're doing, and, uh, you seem to have closed. A lot of reps today is that some of the lesser members are even going thio calling you the voters of this. I'm gonna do hand signals behind me. do you
understand? I'm saying that role. We have a secret
way. Okay? Yes. Yeah, All
right. Really. She she's not like like she's whispering, But it's not like people right next to you can hear the lake. Everyone's kind of like spread out a little bit. And when they say what he says that one other water picks up on a little bit of what he said us all kind of hear the mumbling spreading and what you hear.
