It brings great hope to see @Benefactor here and guiding us, and I think there’s an incredible plan in place to lasso Nate the Storm and have him help us. I hope we can have the souls in the Storm surrender like Teddy said, so we can finally put them all to rest.
I’m more than happy to help out working on anything building up to 9/23, spell crafting, stories, organizational skills, or being generally upbeat and supportive, but I’m not going to be able to be there for you guys on 9/23 and it’s absolutely breaking my heart. I have serious obligations in my mundane life that I simply can’t set aside, and I sincerely hope that each of you can find it in yourselves to forgive me for not being there during your time of greatest need.
That being said, if we don’t end up striking at the Storm between now and 9/23, I would happily surrender the gathered energies from Operation Gladitor to the grand casting. 9/23 is also my namesake’s birthday, so I’ll send any extra luck I come across that day your way.
Lastly, if Deirdre is willing to part with it, I think the Little Red House would be a comparable trade across time. I think a story about a little boy and his father are probably where the money’s at for convincing Nate to help us.
