The journeys through the lands of the mists continue. I find myself lost after leaving the dark clutches of Inza. It wasn’t my place to fully stop her. While the Black Rose is distant and gone, maybe someone else will thwart the usurper. In the meantime, the strange powers that be seem to carry me, as if they too wish to see my quest for knowledge fulfilled. But, they have an ulterior motive, for they never help one for free.
