Dien is searching for the Guardian-incarnate—a Human child who is destined to wield the Amulet of Ra—before Malcolm Zfnoc finds them.
Balon Zfnoctewoohi is chasing after the ghost of Hequera to find the Guardian—but only as bait for Malcolm Zfnoc, the being she desires to kill. Spellbinder, Cyclone, King, and Farrco are on the quest to find the final Primordial Essence—the Claim of Containment that devours all reality before it.
Three separate quests that are all interwoven with each other. Whether they succeed or fail independently depends on each other. They may not be alone but will they act like it?
All the threads crossing over and into each other. All the preceding buildup—it is over. The point of impact is here.
This robot rolls up to me in the middle of these rolling plains while I try to seek answers in the all, Dien thought, what else could it be considered except for divine?
Enemies can be so honest with each other.
“You will not,” Spellbinder said, declaring that it would be so. “I have not erred and neither shall you.” Madness will not take us again. Not ever again. Never.
We are here and we cannot go back and change what we have done. We have to go forward even if that means looking back to make sure we are not repeating ourselves. Even if that means confronting things we would rather not.
