"Thankfully no. Rafflesia is very good at spatial magic, and it seems like her kin are too.
The inside of the core actually has living space too, a small cabin and a greenhouse. It may even be self sufficient, for a few people at least."

Evelyn: "Useful.

What's the plan on searching for the declaration?"

"Start poking around with Observer. There's very little security that it can't get through, so I can pretty much browse until I find it, or something locked down enough that it might be it.
Either way, then I'll... have to figure out how to get Aphelia there. Hopefully it's just lying in a box forgotten somewhere, and not in a high security purpose built vault."

Evelyn: "Okay.

Is Aphelia supposed to be unknown to the others?"


She turns to glance across the room at Bezel.

"Bezel is in the know like you.
The others... Yeah, unknown. Rafflesia contacting me once for Observer is, explain away-able. A second time to deliver me Aphelia, that starts to demand questions.
They said they didn't want to know how deep the rabbit hole goes, and this is firmly down the hole information.
I won't hesitate to use her in an emergency, but I'll burn that bridge when I get to it, not sooner. If it does come to that, eh, Claire rigging something up isn't unbelievable."

Evelyn: "Hm, okay."

That seems to be it for filling in Evelyn, unless if you have more?

The entry into Vellum is smoother than last time - after a quick stop at the border and a talk to the guards, you get a quick escort all the way to Castellum II.

The expedition team, along with Bezel and Lewis, hop out of the transport truck and step out on to a grassy clearing close to the edge of the city.

Large elaborate structures decorate the area, strange shadows in the evening darkness, though there's still plenty of room in a few spots for Ingret to lie down.

A blonde woman approaches your group, who quickly recognize as Ellen.

Ellen: "Isabelle! Ralph! Welcome back!"

”Good to see you again, Ellen. How’s life been treating you in our absence?

Ah, I should introduce you. This is Frederick, a new member of the expedition team, and there’s Lewis, a Whitehawk diplomatic representative we’re transporting. And this is Ellen, Bezel’s cousin.”

Ellen: "Hi, nice to meet you!"

Frederick is about to say something before Ellen turns to Lewis begins to speak again -

Ellen: "I assume you want to find the Whitehawk offices? I can show you where they are."

Lewis: "Ah, yes! That would be very helpful, thank you."

She turns back to the rest of you -

Ellen: "Do you all have a place to stay? Where you planning on staying in Ingret?"

Bezel: "Nothing arranged yet, I don't think."

Ellen: "I'm living in a large condo near the academy, there's plenty space if you want to crash there. At the moment it's just me and one room mate."

"...That's one way to put it. Do you have somewhere large enough for Ingret, as well?"

Ellen: "No, but it's not far from here, about a ten minute walk. Ingret can stay here at the park without any issues."

”Oh, okay. Ingret, would that be okay with you?”
