Our journey into the cosmos began with a message from a surprising source, Lauren Ellsworth. The new Cagliostro found a message in the copy of Seven Cradle Songs that she ‘borrowed’ from the Morgan Library, and she reasoned it was meant for us. It was quite a shock to the mountaineers to learn she knew all about us, but given the scope of her new powers not too hard to believe. Leaving us the clues to the next fragment and a message wishing us well. We haven’t heard from her since.
Our path ahead lay in six riddles and two journal pages. Each page contained three blank discs on them. It quickly became apparent astronomy and science would play a large part in this Fragment, as all of the riddles tended towards constellations, scientists and their discoveries. With each riddle solved, another missing piece of the journals came into being. In the end we had six circles composed of letters and black holes, each with the symbol for a different planet on it.
Several different ways of stacking these discs became apparent. Testing each method and looking through the black holes on the page to the discs beneath led to the names of six constellations. Following the trail of constellations through the Book of Briars led to the sixth constellation, and our ninth fragment, Galifanx.
