Actual Play- Spire- The Network

Trigger warning: Spire deals with themes of racial inequality and fighting against social injustice.

Brother Knife’s identity has been revealed to authorities. Already, he has been arrested and executed. Since no one else from the crew has been picked up, it is safe to assume that Brother Knife didn’t break. Given the nature of their work, the crew has reason to believe that it was a fellow drow that revealed their companion’s identity. Loose ends have got to get tied up one way or another.

The strange outages carrying on from the Summer and forces beyond have enraged something ancient, incited by great pain. These now threaten the world of the living, ever closer to home.
