After a harrowing crawl through ancient Syrneth ruins punctuated by modern Montaigne sewer systems and various interactions with gems that may or may not steal souls, the crew of the Fantoma Reine now finds themselves face to face with personal Fate Witches of L’Emperor and their only way out of this nightmare to head through his palace, where discovery can lead to beheading. Furthermore, the witches seem to understand the problematic Black Strands bound to the captain’s heart, but will not reveal their secrets until they are free from the palace.
