Blackout a Tale in the 9th World

Maelstrom of Metamorphosis

Storm of Change comes to Boreg

Myeong gets Nevel to talk about the meeting at his house and what he overheard, there's something coming towards town and its not good, he's grabbing his family and going to Qi if Myeong is looking for him.  Talk of people turning into balls of amorphic flesh and wailing from those who weren't instantly changed into something not living haunted the lone survive of the Bandit Queen.  Myeong promises to look after his place in case things turn to looting.

Meanwhile Freya sees people leaving the private room such as the Mayor, Lady Vount and her entourage.  She sees Vount's odd device that winks them out of existence before going home for the night since although odd it's pretty normal for people in the area for traversing long distances.

Bell goes home and notices fishing groups not left for their tour at sea yet.  He gets closer and notices possessions and clothes of female getting loaded.  Which is odd since women only would be on a ship if they owned it or worked the vessel.

Ghost opts after Lady Vount playing hard to get that his best option was to enjoy the festival and to party the rest of the night away at The Casting.  He meets Mavia and dances the night away.  Spending the last hours of the night into the early morning with her is cut short by her noticing boats still loading and more so then normal.  She goes back to her boat and she gets her boss, Captain Bert telling her that they're bugging out and to get all her belongings as if they've not coming back to the city for over a year (more so then the time they'd be at sea fishing).  Ghost gets over to Bell's place with the mention of ruins from where something dangerous is coming towards town.  Profits and glory are to be had and a artifact hunter knows an opportunity when they smell one.

Myeong goes to see Beetle and get a Sit Rep on how the Schism are handling the situation.  Beetle's prepping for the converging anomaly for studying things and wants Myeong to get the the Aeon Priests to stick around to study the analysis.  Hadrian specifically.  This makes Myeong wonder due to the organization's normal MO.  They constantly vie to undermine the Convergence not the Order or Truth… the only thing that comes to mind is if they aren't Anber Priests which isn't a stretch since the Convergence members are a splinter cell of the Order of Truth.  Myeong keeps that in mind and goes to find the others.  Considering he opts to bug Freya first since she's the closest.

Bell goes to find Freya while Ghost went to find his friend Handrian and see what the priests were going to do.  Bell goes to the Thimble to get her and unfortunately breaks Ylonda's window to Freya's room.  Ylonda demands 50 shin for repairs.  Bell is trying to defend himself when the rock used to hit the window knocks him back and over.  Myeong makes the matters worse and instigates a bit and says good evening to Ms Ylonda before the trio head to Ghost's.  Myeong also seeds a plan to throw a party in Freya's room and possibly redecorate while they clean.  Bell doesn't seem to like this plan that much besides just cleaning and repairing the window since it might lead to more violence.

Ghost goes to find Hadrian who's sticking behind to studying this anomaly and is already at his house.  Hadrian is curious if it's the Iron Wind.  Father Brekin was mentioned who was a priest from 300 years ago that was studying it before he was transformed into something that could not administer his duties anymore.

The four friends opts to form an exploration party and take the job in finding out about the ruins where this anomaly was coming from.  Myeong asks if a cut is at least 50 shin or at least enough to repair a window to the standard of Ms Ylonda of the Thimble.  Ghost picks up on what probably happened from Myeong inquiry, his smile, the sigh from Bell and the the reminder from Freya that her room needs to be cleaned.  Myeong asks about the Priests for when they come back if they find something out important or stopping and diverting the anomaly or possible Iron Wind. 

Bell is unsure if the ruins in question are the ones he had been exploring but with a loan of two mounts and a map north towards the possible location the group heads north through the forest and woodlands trying not to die.  Freya tries to figure out the features of the map while Ghost steers the beast of burdern.  Bell is stuck with Myeong who rambles on with ideas for redecorating Freya's room as a surprise.
