Edward kept sitting on the sidelines. The motivation came and went, but never stayed as it once had. With Kvothe gone, what was his purpose? He had felt at home at the old Chantry. The first time he felt at home in the Material for a long time. And now, even his refuge, The Web was taken away from him. He no longer had his computer. The Web was still dominated by the Mirrorshades.

Computers were his tools, the Web his world. He had neither. He had lost so many friends as well. And the living ones... they were in trouble but he managed to do very little to help them. He... he was dead weight.

Edward had isolated himself in his room now. It didn't really feel like his room. He had one last escape. Magic. He lay idly in his bed, and absent-mindedly input the commands for God's Eye in his tablet. He wanted to observe all of the spheres at the same time. He could do that. Few in his group could. He enjoyed seeing the way the essences flowed and intermingled, how code mixed itself into currents, taking the form of lights, streams, outlines, all to be examined and read by the mage.

That was the one thing that made him different. He could see how Space interacted with Time. He could see how Mind altered Matter. He could see the Forces that governed Luck and Life. He could see the wandering of Spirits, and how many objects had their own. And he could see how the Mana permeated everything, giving it energy, giving it motion, giving it cohesion.

It was... calming. He hoped his will was still strong enough to do at least this one thing as he hit the "Execute" button on his pad, closed his eyes and swiped his hand over his eyes. Going though the motions helped.

He opened his eyes.

Cada vez menos Xang se dava ao luxo de vaguear pela Chantry: quando não estava a dar aulas a Kote, certamente estaria a treinar com Lief, um dos seus "alunos" - se é que alguém como o monge conseguia ter alunos sem um Dojo da Irmandade - mais determinados. Certo que não era tão capaz como Kote, mas Kote é um génio, um que facilmente superaria Xang. "(Um desafio à altura, deveras...)", ponderou, com um sorriso no rosto. "(Tão semelhante mas tão diferente de Kvothe... Quase parece o Karma a troçar de nós, a ferir-nos o coração desta forma...)", Liu suspirava, a sua introspeção já havia sido há mais de um ano, mas laços destes, de lealdade, dificilmente se dissolviam para quem tivesse sido ensinado pela Irmandade.

Havia pouco mais que Liu quisesse que visitar as cinzas de Kvothe, perto do Node da Chantry, mas esse local era secreto, e para o manter secreto o monge resistia à tentação. Teria de pedir a Natalie que o deixasse aceder à área, e todo o processo arriscava que mais alguém descobrisse esse local. A memória do seu amigo e antigo líder teria de chegar, agora que Xang se havia decidido a crescer e a usar o seu poder para ajudar, como havia dito no seu encontro com a manifestação da Justiça.

Edward era a sua mais recente preocupação, e o motivo pelo qual Xang divagava pela Chantry, Sshas'kah seguindo bem próxima, no seu passo leve e destro. "Cheiro magia, muito leve...", sibilou, ao passar perto do quarto de Edward: "Ele deve estar no quarto.". Antes de Xang sequer levantar a mão, Sshas'kah batia à porta: "Edward, querido, estás aí?"

((Assuming a 7, 8, 3 is enough to overcome the difficulty))

Edward sighed. At least he could will himself into seeing magic. At least he had that. At least he hadn't become completely lame.

Code.

Beautiful.

Magical.

Ever-changing.

Reality shows itself.

Someone's at the door. Edward sighed again. He input the symbols. Transform, Hide, Mind, Life, Prime. Encrypt Thoughts. Whoever it was, they wouldn't get to pry on his thoughts, so he thought, and released the spell.

((Rolling Arete for the spell))

(OOC: Ignorando o efeito do feitiço porque ninguém está a tentar ler a mente de Edward)

A tentativa de Sshas'kah não teve resposta, e Xang tenta de novo, batendo ele à porta desta vez: "Edward, estás aí? Precisava de falar contigo."

The spell barely worked. Edward sighed. He recognised the voice on the other side. Xang. He mutely groaned as he lifted himself from his bed and grabbed his tablet. He unlocked the door and sat on his chair. -"Come in"-he typed-"The door is unlocked."
Heavens, what did the monk want?

Xang fez uma curta vénia antes de entrar no quarto de Edward, e passando a porta procurou um local no chão para se sentar, o que veio com facilidade, dada a arrumação do quarto. Sshas'kah rapidamente se apoderou do "puff", esgueirando-se por trás do monge para cair sobre o saco com um bufo suave e contente. "Recentemente King resgatou os pais da Harmony e da Ashling, e dois tecnocratas que trabalhavam com eles. As suas vestes tinham um X bem proeminente. Não sabia de tecnocratas a trabalhar com magos, fazes ideia de quem possam ser estas pessoas? Alguma ideia sobre o seu grupo?" Enquanto Xang falava, Sshas'kah passava os olhos pelo quarto, e reparou nas malas feitas: decerto que os tempos têm sido precários, mas já há um ano que a cabala estava na Chantry... O monge fez uma nota mental do que o seu Familiar notou, para abordar mais tarde. Por enquanto, esperava uma resposta do Virtual Adept.

Edward reclined on his chair. Exers. Huh. -"That sounds like Iteration X. They're the ones that hunt the VA most relentlessly. They are our biggest rival when it comes to the fight over the Net Realm."- he typed and sighed, deep in thought -"Still, like with the Void Engineers, they're known to make truce with VAs and Etherites when shit hits the fan or when the Web needs some extra hard exploring..."- he smirked -"Those are the occasions when we don't kill each other on sight."
