Said it before. I’ll say it again. Some people can’t take a joke. If it’s dangerous why would you use it in the first place? On a positive note, it forced a resolution to some of my trust issues. (addl comments to be added based on outcome)
Alder and Happy went to sleep again. Benolaa is still asleep. Spencer seems unaffected so maybe it really does have something to do with the Markaan experiments. Intended control effect? Unintended side effect?
Ganta confirmed that the Black Hand will be testing us (toying with us?) to determine our strengths and weaknesses. It seems that he (she?) leaves no loose ends and we have seen the Black Hand’s native form. He never fails once a target selected, but he apparently has an ego the size of ప్పటా నికిసాక్షి క్యాచ్ . Calling cards. Snubs towards his hunters. Graphic termination of a copycat killer. Incredibly thorough in his investigation abilities, and we assume scrying/eavesdropping is coming if not already present.
We’re back in the Gemini Cluster on Aventus Bonus so Quesix can do some research. I did research of my own, figuring what worked once on the Black Hand is worth trying again. I added some extra functionality in case a particular annoyance pops up again. I suppose it has other uses.
