No, Stanton, they haven’t contacted me. I’m not happy you set me up as the middle man for you little lost and found mission. I don’t work for you, we work together and that is just until we solve this problem. Don't forget that. I need to get odd here, I have work to attend to. Yes, the deer people thing. What? Yes, yeah you can have them once they’ve served their purpose. Should be about a week. Once the trap is sprung, I don’t have any use for the bait. I assume you’ll be at the club tonight? Well, I’ll see you there then.

 

As some members of the team try to forget, other go to great lengths to find something to fight for. Oh, and there is a wonderful family reunion.

Luume Ep. 77 Naked

They have the rock and should deliver it soon. It took them long enough, frankly, after the highway of bread crumbs I left. The rock knows the plan and will put him on the path. Stanton is full of himself, but he’s still scary smart. If we hold his hand on this too much, he'll get suspicious. What are we gonna do about the other ones? They’re on their back foot now, but we both know that seems to be where they do their best work. Maybe they have too much on their plate. Too many mouths to feed, but we need to take some sort of precaution because I think we underestimated them... I know we did.

 

In this week of emotional heart to hearts, many deeply-held secrets are revealed and relationships are put to the test.

When I was arrested, I lost something very important to me. For the longest time, I thought the city guard had it and that it was rotting away somewhere in an evidence locker. Now, I come to find out that you three stole it from me. I don’t care where it is, now. All I care about is getting it back. You three will retrieve it for me. I want this done quietly and, above all, quickly. I am not the kind of man you want to delay or disappoint because, well, two of you have very interesting natural abilities, and I’ve never experimented on an elf before.

 

The team begins to recover from their time in the temple. Things are, to say the least, tense. Some go to find council while others look for stimulating conversation.

They told me you saw something down there. I believe you. I can see it in your eyes. It’s the same look I see in my own. The knowledge of what’s coming and the strength of will to try and stop it. I have more resources than ever before, and backing to do the work needed, but I need one more thing. It was taken from me when I was arrested, and I know you can get it back for me. We don’t have to like each other. If you like, we can go to war when this is over, but there needs to be a world for us to fight over. So what do you say, Ada? Ready to save the world?

 

As the team try and make their way through the temple, they encounter strange machinery and odd architecture, but it’s a face from the past that may pose the most threat.

This week the team dives back into the temple that they ventured into so long ago. Can they stick together as forces work to break them apart, and how will new information affect them?

Just a few more steps, Elizabet. Our new players are almost ready. They just need a few more things, and they will be prepared to finish this. We have issues with our older pawns, though. Seems like they think there is a way out. That’s not acceptable. There’s no running. There’s no hiding. Oblivion is coming for everything here, and they are no different. I want this reality gone. No vestiges of it hiding anywhere else. Strand them here, Elizabet. Do it by any means.

 

The teams dives into the Shadowfell, venturing into the realm of dusk and meeting some old friends along the way. They also make friends with the local folks.

Luume Ep. 72 Just Like Home

I am very familiar with the horror that lurks in the darkness, Mr. Slayton. I was content to run from it once again, but now, given what happened with my son and his friends, it does not seem like running is an option anymore. I will not go quietly, and while others might dismiss your… vision, I appreciate the intent. You need more, though. You’re talented, but your vision is too small. That is not a slight, you just don’t know how big a level to work on. Monsters are well and good, Mr. Slayton, but it takes far more than a monster to kill a god.

 

This week, the team begins to gather information for their next mission. Sights are staked out, files are reviewed, and meetings with your parents never get less awkward.

Luume Ep. 71 Make It Worse

Hello. My name is Stanton Slayton. Though, I imagine that if you brought me here, you already know that. You’ve read about me in the papers, I’m sure. About the brilliant engineer who was driven to the edge by his work and became a monster. You see it now, though. The darkness falling on this world. Other planes spilling into ours. The city tearing at the seams. That pressure in the back of your head telling you to fear the night. And, now, you come to me because you’ve finally realized there are worse things in the dark than monsters.

Makers are met and old friends are visited as the team begins to ramp up for their next mission. One team member dives into their past, but sometimes the past needs to remain forgotten.

Luume Ep. 70 I’d Burn Down The World

Look, I’m just gonna come out and say it. Otto’s lost their vision. The people who pull the strings are at their weakest, and we’re what? Being errand runners for a soup kitchen? I mean, it’s not like these people don’t need help, but we’re, at best, acting as a bandage. At worst, we’re hurting these people further by not seizing the reigns. If this was Otto a year ago, we would be running the city and actually helping, but now...We’re all thinking it. It’s Corra. She’s a great person and has a big heart, but that is not what the city needs. It’s not what Otto needs.

This week, the team does their best to provide for their section of the city as their resources dwindle. Also, a pair of couples have some heart-to-heart talks, as well as a caper revealed.

Luume Ep. 69 I Quit

You couldn’t protect him forever, Elizabet. Like I said, he was bound to put it together. I know you had a soft spot for him. What? You think I didn’t see you pulling punches with him and his friends? I know it’s not the first time. Little moments when your better self comes up for air. With those new Keeper recruits, what, forty years ago? More recently with that whole apartment complex thing you and the elf helped out with. You’ve been using kids gloves with him, but remember, it’s all just ephemeral. It will all go away soon enough, and you will have the peace you’ve wanted for so long. Now, be quick. This will burn up quicker than you think it will.

 

This week ties are severed as some members of the group turn in their proverbial pink slips. Some other forces are waiting in the wings though, waiting to see the fallout.
