Keepers of the Veil Evidence Item 616, recovered from stolen cargo ship:

 

We Are All In The Gutter was squeamish about it, but the brains are beginning to pay off. The data they produce is not easy to parse out, but I think I am beginning to see the pattern. If I’m right, this tear is much different than I thought. More of a bleed, like we’re seeing with the other planes. I think the solutions are still the same, but closing it may not be the biggest issue. Something is here. Already made its way through. I don’t know what, oh? A perimeter breach? Well, took them long enough huh?

 

The team has to deal with one of their worst nightmares made real as they descend to the lowest part of the ship, and face Stanton again, maybe for the last time.

Yes, We Are All In The Gutter, I am aware I placed the boat out in the open. Traps need bait, or are the elves that detached that they’ve forgotten how to hunt? I know you see little need in dealing with the… heroes, but I can tell you from experience that they have a habit of finding ways to jam the gears. Yes, the projects are coming along nicely. My use of the siphoned energy is making for some amazing results.

The team descends into Stanton’s ship. It actually goes OK. Like, nothing bad down there at all. Just kidding, it’s horrifying and awful.

It’s been so hard to sleep these last few days. All I can hear when I close my eyes is the clock ticking down. I know Tseer and Awakening are concerned about me. Hell, I think even Tessa is worried. I must be at rock bottom. It’s just, the heart and this engine. I feel like I am on the edge of a break though if I can just get there. I wish I had some fucking equipment.  I wonder if Enix kept up my lab? Hell, I wonder if Enix is still in the city? That feels like a lifetime ago. I was a different person then. Detached. Cold. Confident. 

 

The team finishes a lovely dinner and finally get down to business. They are making their play against Stanton and their plan couldn’t be better.

It’s been so hard to sleep these last few days. All I can hear, when I close my eyes, is the clock ticking down. I can tell that Ada and We Are All In The Gutter are worried about me, but I need to focus. I had to move my lab off-site. It seems like others had trouble finding this place. Mixing this energy with my other work has proven fruitful. It’s versatile in ways just plain flesh isn’t, so long as I can keep up the shipments of new specimens. The fey creatures are proving to be wonderful canvases on which to work, and the delivery drivers are a great source of raw materials.

 

The team prepares for dinner. Just a regular, not-with-an-antagonistic-god kind of dinner. Everyone will be on their best behavior, and not a single outburst will happen.

A speech form Otto Nakamura in font of the shuttered church of the Raven Queen:

 

Most of you know me from when I ran for office, or from the food banks since they locked us in over here. Some of you may know what I do as a night gig, and it’s that last part I want to talk to you about. They have had us under heel for years, but since these portals have started to destroy their homes, those in power have finally decided to try and stamp us out. I want to take back this city. Not just the ruined part they see fit to let us dwell in, but the whole thing. I want to give it to everyone it has failed to lift up and help thrive. I want you to help because, frankly, I can’t do this without you.

 

Some conversations are tough, and this week the team has a lot of them. Confessions, requests, proposals, and heart to hearts as far as the eye can see.

Public statement by Darwin Linkovich A.k.a Newton Zemke:

 

With everything that’s going on The Keepers of the Veil want to reassure the public. Understandably, the incursions from the Feywild are upsetting, but we need to keep from spreading hurtful rumors. Stories of breaches to the Shadowfell, stolen automatons, and sightings of unexplainable creatures are simply that. Rumors. We have monitored the situation closely, and if anything were to happen like that we would immediately alert the public. We have your best interests at heart, and the spreading of the untrue and alarming stories only serve to harm the bond that is so important to the success of this city. 

 

The team keeps trying to relax as they take on important, and surprising conversation about their present and their possible futures.

Front page of the Nightly Post Review:

 

Chaos rocks the quarantine area as explosions rip through the eastern section of the city.  Tensions have been on the rise as the alleged supply shipment disruptions have picked up. Citizens interviewed have said that a fight between rival criminal organizations escalated to a fevered pitch. The official report from the city guard says otherwise, with them blaming a poorly maintained industrial site for the explosions. With the heated situation in the quarantine zone, tensions on the east side of the river have never been higher. 

 

After the battle in the Ash to Ash headquarters, the team takes some down time to try and come to grips with what happened

Where are they now? Still fighting? Good. Yeah I know about the fucking robots. I can’t believe Ada of all people was working with Stanton Slayton. Otto may have lost the way, but they never played us like that. I don’t know if we should move on them and finish them off or what. This whole thing is so fucked. Ok, ok, get everyone quick. We’ll, uh, do what we do best. Play it by ear. 

 

The team’s deadly trip down memory lane continues as they are harried by Stanton’s robots, but as the fight draws close, could there be a bigger threat looming?

The fact that a man as smart as Stanton Slayton thinks that he can fight fire with fire is astounding. I mean, it’s great for us, just surprising really. Ego is such a wonderful tool. It’s versatile and effective in way things like fear, or intimidation don’t even touch. With every one of those new, little projects he brings into this cage of a world, I can feel more of my reality seap in. Soon, our little ember is gonna be an inferno, because the only thing that happens when you fight fire with fire is you make the fire worse.

 

Battered and bruised, the team try to collect themselves and find their lost member, but Ada and Stanton have put together something new to stand in their way.

Intercepted message from We Are All In the Gutter But Some Of Us Are Looking At The Stars:

Archive Item 6041

Stanton, why did you not tell me what you were after? I know this thing has always had an agenda of its own. I'm not saying it is misleading you, but I want you to weigh its advice heavily. Treat it like you treat Ada and myself. I do not begrudge you of that weariness. I just urge you to apply it to the crystal.

It all comes to a head as the team pushes into the heart of the Ash to Ash HQ. Plans are made, sass is thrown, and traps are sprung.
