Thank you for your patience, everyone. I'm almost back up to 100%, so you can expect a post by Monday at the latest. In the meantime, I figured I'd share a little bit of what's coming up with you all.
Aura and Cascade's actions will both yield results. Aura's discovery will make the coming battle easier, while Cascade's discovery will be more of a hint towards what will be coming up in future chapters. A tiny hint, perhaps, but a hint none the less.
As for the battle itself, we won't be playing out the whole thing turn by turn in initiative order. I have something planned which will speed things up a little while also keeping things entertaining too.
