TL;DR: We are right on track and doing amazing! Don’t give up, we can definitely tackle this together.
I just want to make a general announcement. We have had a lot of new recruits and mountaineers, which I have absolutely loved seeing. But it is around this time that we can get discouraged or we can start to lose heart that we are ever going to progress. As someone who has been through two previous assessments (I am still assuming this is an assessment?), we are right on track. These assessments are meant to stretch us, meant to make us grow. We wouldn’t be progressing as Users of Magiq if we didn’t have to work through the ugly.
Each previous Assessment has been given to us in order to work in different areas, intuition, recollection (if I recall correctly? see what I did there ;)). This one is likely no different. This one is bending us, and working us, the trick is to not let it break us. We have accomplished many great things as a group, and this will be no different. The Kindly Brew for Finding Hidden Things was eventually put back together and completed. The Tetrahedron was constructed and assessed.
We have a lot of people to do this for, a lot of people to prove that we are capable of being trusted. Deirdre, Cole, Marty, The Late Sullivan Green, Aether, The Council. Countless others that I am sure I am missing. All of these people are counting on us, all of these are “watching” us. Watching our next moves. So, to you new mountaineers, the ones that have come in here ready to go, only to get slowed by 22 “possible celestial bodies”, don’t lose hope. You have the rest of this group beside you, and we will finish this assessment just like we have finished the rest, a little beaten, a little weary, but it has always been together.
Okay, announcement done. Everyone can continue with their days and work now.
