In this episode we’re continuing our long-ass Scenario of ensuring the independence of the main characters of this story. It’s going reasonably well so far, but we’re just about to get to the hardest part: a Payout 15 Extraction Scenario!

It’s high time to sort out the situation in the Warrens and restore the natural order of the Universe: with Tomorrow being on top of any pile, Wheeler at her side. At least she considers it the natural order of things. Other people might not agree, but they’re not the protagonists here.

Bored Tomorrow is not a good sign. Tomorrow, whose life was more or less thrown upside-down by learning that her lover was lying to her for almost a year (even if not entirely on his own volition), is a bad omen for anybody she picks as her enemy.

Who’s up for a treat? The brand new and reworked scenario generation system?

I am! It was literally just put together, and we’re taking it on the maiden journey.

As we’re working our way up the campaign finale, there’s a lot of scheming, planning, plotting, and strategizing. On all sides.

Things are heating up in the Warrens as we take a short break from the main campaign and make sure that our protagonist’s life goes on outside of her current quest. You can’t wage a war 24/7 – sometimes you need to make sure nobody brings a second one onto your doorstep.

In this episode, we’re returning d’Venescu’s spell back to the sender (with some freebies attached!). He, unlike us, will not enjoy it. Also, there’s a lovely surprise at the end.
