I just broke 19,000. whee
I got to throw in a little twist of my own--finally! Instead of Akotai being quietly insane for a few days . . . he's tried out his new insanity: Megalomania. He thought he could handle more power than he's ever handled before.
He was wrong.
Unfortunately, he'll be back, and he's managed to destroy about a third of the city.
Barukei doesn't believe Hiyo that the spell was aimed at them. I think he already knows who the culprit is, but just doesn't want to face it. He just can't bring himself to believe that Akotai, who shows him such kindness and attention, could do it. But I think now he's close to being convinced.
