    Passing through the doorway, Sloane and Cas find themselves inside a large, warehouse-like building. The building is empty save for a lone table position a few steps ahead of them. On top of this table they find three objects - A Hand Mirror, A Crystal Paperweight, and a lit Oil Lamp.

    The message is audio only.

    'Cousin Eisen. If you're getting this, then you've come back and I'm gone. Don't worry, I've just relocated myself. But enough chatting, down to buissness. I've monitored Eden as best I can, and things are....odd. The dome hasn't changed, but there appears to be some sort of distortion that happens once every week or so, with what appears to be an airship leaving the city and landing at a cloaked location I can't observe. Whatever it is, it works like clockwork. I've encoded the coordinates in the message for you. Might be worth checking out. All the best.'

    Deep, deep inside he can see something swirling. A speck of something that appears to grow into focus the longer he looks at it.

    'Yes?'

    "Other than erecting walls, if I am fighting someone in a psychic battle, is there any other way to defend against an attack? You once said that imagination and will plaid a role in this." Rivia asked him.

    "A good question. Yes, it is. A wall is the simplest way of doing psychic defense, and for those without psychic power beyond the baseline or willpower, that's all they can mentally errect. But imagiantion, if you have the pwoer to back it up, can turn your mental landscape into your own fortresss, your own battleground filled with whatever psychic defenses you can imainge. Ships, guns, soldiers, creatures etc........., and teh mroe complex the situation, the harder it will be to break through, even if one is more powerful. However, there is a cost, and having such a complex creation can strain you if you aren't practiced, and can drain your psychic reserves if you aren't careful."

    Rivia spoke thoughtfully, carefully, "So, the stronger you are the more complex and realistic your mindscape can be...? And what happens in the mindscape, it can affect the physical body as well?"

    "Huh." Sloane rubbed his chin. "This lamp seems like something useful."

    He went over and picked it up.

    As he looked at the flame he saw an image of Rivia, trapped in a cage of fire. Then the flame flickered and he saw another image, this one of a red and grey wolf fighting a shadowy demon figure.

    Casimir considers the options, then heads over to pick up the hand mirror.

    Gazing into the polished surface of the hand mirror, Cas saw an image of Rose trapped in a mirrored box.

    "Alright." Casimir took a single step back, then waited for the assault.

    Rosemary was trapped... "Goddamn it Sloane." Looking at the paperweight, and then the oil lamp in Sloane's hand, he understood, or at least thought he did, what each of them represented.

    "Rosemary got taken as well." Now it was just a matter of getting to her.

    Sloane bit back his anger. There was no way he was going to let this slide, no way at all!

    "What?!" He rushed over to take a look at the mirror.

    "I warned you." Sloane fucked up twice now, and now Rosemary and Max were suffering for it, too angry to do much else, Casimir just held out the mirror. "Take it, and give me the lamp."
