Thoughts & Intrigue
The princess has been locked in her room for two days now. I hear screaming every now and then in between the tears of anguish. It might be a while before she is ready to come out. I locked myself away for weeks after Ymnir’s death, not wanting to see anybody at all. All there is left for me to do until then is train.
I set-up the simulation room to take on the appearance of the neighbourhood where we landed. It was beautiful and I loved to jog past the beach, the computer doing an excellent job of rendering humans that I’d run past before out in the real world.

Nakaia stepped off the tram with the others not far behind. They’d reached Twin Oracle Point and true to his word, Xenglo had left a plethora of supplies. They materialized out of thin air, responding to Nakaia’s voice as she sang a quick note.
Nakaia rolled her eyes, “Sodding Neb!”
Nakaia looked around and was pleased with the range of supplies around them. She set about commanding the group to organize it all in to logical piles, leaving Orion in charge of this aspect while she read the last part of the message.
“One final warning before I jump into Xaabos Space. Expect some visitors soon, if Korv asks about the Helsian I cannot like. He will likely send bounty hunters, maybe assassins after you. Be ready!”
Nakaia shut off the tablet and set it down. She was always ready, she had expected the Nebula-Runner to betray them – it was in their nature. But was this actually a betrayal or something else?
She wanted to get this base up and running as soon as possible so she could travel to Sixam to investigate this new thread of intrigue further.
