C/W: violence, death
“The instructors taught us this trick. When a remnants influence begins to cause things to slip, build constants. Mark the world, use them to observe and comprehend. That’s the purpose of this record.
This is waking 11 or 12.”
– Oken nim Sharif
This is the final part of our special Shards & Fragments: Eolith – focusing on the Jackal’s attempts to bring down Relict. We’re playing The Harder They Fall, a game of final battles for the fate of the world, by Jay Iles and UFO Press.
Finally united at the edge of Eolith’s petrified forest, the Tender’s Oken and Flint launch their assault on Relict. Its envoys, the gestalt consciousness led by Mell, swarm to protect their remnant.
Sensing the threat that the Jackal’s pose, the envoys petition Relict to release their fearsome sibling, Hongeo. A gigantic fermented stingray, with a dangerous relationship with entropy.
