To think, no one had ever seen a blue sky before…
In those days, the last days of what was the Interdependency, of what was Shard, we stood defiantly against our own end.
Shoulder to shoulder, as ever in the Interdependency. Staring down the inevitable. Staring down the end. The Miasma. That once dormant sentient mist who had snuffed out all the life that came before us. Across Shard our communities, our friends, our families were safeguarded away, should we fail in this our last-ditch effort to secure all our futures.
And in the First University we toiled and built and worked ourselves to the bone, unaware of just how close we skirted calamity with little more than hope and the leylines to guide us. This would be it. All or nothing, this would be it.
We stared down our inevitable end, and it stared right back.
And one of us was about to blink.
In today’s episode, we’ve reached the final chapter of the story of the Interdependency Shuffle. For better and for worse, whatever happens inside the strange otherworld of the Shuffle will change everything. This week we consider giving in to astonishment, strike a few deals, and close out our story.
