Chandrasekhar: "Potentials, possibilities. It’s information we didn't already have."

*Phyllis does so, keeping it held away while peering at the man's face and bringing it closer and closer with [Mage Hand], lest the vision end before the shadows fully disperse.*

Zane: "No sense in worrying about it now, regardless."

*Zane‘ follows Garrett.*

Zane: "I suspect that he was dead and Nicodemus had moved on, like discarding a tool."

Aleith|DM:

*The fog parts to reveal:*

"Constables."

*Rock Rackus speaks with awkward solemnity.*"Is that an asteroid I do spy?"

*Through a gap in the forest canopy, you watch a white conflagration barrel through the sky, tumbling end over end as it streaks past you. The air roars with its passage. It disappears from view, but a moment later light flashes through the darkened forest from where it landed. The ground leaps beneath you, and only then do you hear the ear-shattering explosion of the impact.*

"Son of a bitch!"

*Rackus abandons all attempts at civility.*"There’s more of 'em! Follow me!"

Aleith|DM:

*Rock Rackus runs off into the forest, leading you and a mass of other people on a dash through the woods.*

Zane: "… I cannot imagine a future in which I actally feel like following this man is the smart choice."

Garrett: "That’s why we do it now- no consequences!"

Aleith|DM:

*Cracks begin to form in the ground—truly gaping, bizarre rifts that reveal that the ground is a massive hollow shell of crystal. Soil and trees tumble into the chasms, where they incandesce from the white-hot fire of the asteroids that have shattered the surface and ignited the interior.*

Chandrasekhar: "It's a vision, you're supposed to follow the strangest thing you s- good Goddess."

Aleith|DM:

*After a minute of running, Rock shouts,*"we're almost there!"

Phyllis: "Like the stardust we found in the cavern of ice giants."

Phyllis: "Like in the Nevard's prophecy. Stars, literally falling."

Aleith|DM:

*Through the woods ahead, the white fires of five torches illuminate what looks like a massive docked sailing ship.*

Gerald: "This is *bad* batch of feypepper smoke, holy shit."

Aleith|DM:

*Other fires—these quite larger than torches—become visible off to your right, like another group is running toward the same ship they are.*

Aleith|DM:

Chandrasekhar: "Nevermind what I said about the other future's aesthetic."

Gerald: "I've seen a few but they're not exactly cost effective to opperate yet so they don't really use them."

Gerald: "Mostly for dick waving, really."
