Well ... lots has happened
Thought I'd post this here ...
So the book is burned.
There's uncertainty as to whether we can unlock the next part of The Book while it's in this state.
How do we repair The Book of Briars? Where do we start?
Can the Book even be repaired?
Do we need to repair it? We created and effectively did Magiq today. Loads of us thought the Book was a spell this whole time. Can we discover that Spell without it?
Lots of thoughts after today.
I would also like to point out that, yes, the Storm came and destroyed part of the Book and we don't know if all our friends are even alive and KS is probable long gone, BUT despite all that, we're still here.
The Storm came and wiped out the '94 Mounties. Augie and Augernon were the only remnants. They were done.
We are all still here. All of us Mounties. I think that's what the Ocular Eye was saying when it told us we were the strongest group yet.
We chose Hope with the Eye, Mounties, not Despair. Don't forget that. Never give up.
