She nods.

It's quite late by the time you return to Castellum, the starry sky greeting you as you exit Ingret's core.



Donovan: "Thanks for the trip. Even if it, wasn't what I was expecting, I know a little more now."

Donovan: "I guess I'll try to set up a proper trip later, spend more time digging around."

He solemnly waves goodbye, and then walks off.

Back in the condo, you flop into bed.

The expedition team still isn't back yet, which is worrying, but you guess you just have to trust them to get back on their own.

You think you're just about out of plans, unless if you're going to explore the Pillar's underground levels.

Decide against it.
Materialize her and try Observing while controlling her. We'll need that for the trip to the underpillar.

You briefly consider popping into Aphelia's core to scream, but decide against it.


Sending Observer into Aphelia, you materialize her body and see if you can perform quick Observer peeks like you can when in your normal body.

With Aphelia, it feels like it's harder to maintain a passive connection to her body when you hop into Observer - in fact, when you try to maintain a passive body connection, it shifts back to your normal body instead of sticking to her.



After a little practice, you're able to walk around with your normal body while still roughly piloting Aphelia, and finally seeing her in motion for the first time. Not exactly what you were aiming for, and she's a bit, eerie, if you have to be honest.

Is it any easier to walk and observe if I'm inside the core?

Yoinking yourself into the core, you try walking Aphelia around again and Observing, but encounter the same issue - you can't maintain a partial connection with Aphelia with Observer up. Moving Observer seems to instantly disconnect from her.

It seems like the Observer "eye" itself is what's required to pilot Aphelia.

> Yeah, thought that might be it. Well that's fine, I just have to tuck her into a corner while I scout with observer.
Hm. I should prepare some insta-deploy supplies before I go snooping in. Have Ingret and Bezel help with some HM forming.
Go find Bezel! As Ralph, not as Aphelia, she can go back in our pocket.

Exiting the core, you deactivate Aphelia's body and holster her before walking over to Bezel's room.

She's lying on her bed, reading one of many magic textbooks strewn about.

Bezel: "Hm?"

Planning on spelunking the tunnels next. I'll stay here, and do it remotely I think. No need to go in person."

Bezel: "Some church robes, maybe? Or were you thinking something more along the lines of camouflage with the tunnel walls?"
