Well, aside from Kamilla.

Plus I don't think Isla would consent to being forcefully matchmade, even if it would make life a bit easier."


Aldente: "That's unfortunate."

Entering the Construct R&D facility, you find Bezel, Claire, and Isla inside.

Bezel and Isla are working with one of the stripped-down decompressed cores while Claire is at the large tables, flipping through the collection of textbooks that Bezel acquired back in Castellum II.


Luckily you thought to order four carry-out meals in the event that you'd be faced with this situation - easier to have leftovers than run and grab more food, or make someone feel left out.


Claire: "Ah, there's Ralph to make sure you're fed."

Bezel's muffled voice yells out from the confines of the core -

Bezel: "There's what!?"

Bezel and Isla crawl out of the witch core, both missing the usual labcoats, office shirts wrinkled and no longer tucked in.


Bezel: "Mm, lunch."

Claire: "Kinda late for lunch."

After clearing the end of one of the tables, everyone takes a seat with their meal of pasta. You and Bezel seated on one side, and Claire and Isla opposite from you.

Among the piles of assorted stuff next to you are rough design documents on a compression-core-based construct, with various things stuffed inside and hooked up, as well as a external component to house the compressed core.

Bezel: "Yup. Compression core to contain the important bits. Modified TI-Comp for the telepathic interface. Still need to get a good capacitor that doesn't die from witch-levels of mana. All the load wiring needs to be pretty robust and insulated. At this scale, you can get a lot of mana leakage that messes things up."

"Why stick it all in a compression core if it's for a witch? Protection for the sensitive parts?"

Bezel: "That, and a capacitor big enough to handle witch-mana would be gigantic. And a focus beefy enough to handle all that mana at once, since it needs to generate artifacts that are fairly corruption resistant, being in the Zone an' all.

Do you remember that dragon Ingret lasered when we were flying to Raena?"

"Sure. Mostly gonna be on Ingret for re-finding it, but that doesn't sound too hard, assuming the core is intact. Are there corruption eaters in that region?"

Bezel: "Hopefully not. It's a bit higher up north than Darson, but who knows what sort of things are in the deep forests.

Well.

I guess we know it has manticores."

"Manticore repellent gun, don't fail me now...

Wow, that reminds me of that chest we found on that first expedition. Don't think we ever figured out what was up with that place."

Claire: "There're probably a bunch of places like that - small towns and villages that became overrun with beasts after the Daeli Empire fell."

Bezel: "Lots of archaeology."
