GM- Tod Foley

On the other side of the reality fracture other-Nash yells “That’s live ordnance!” and everybody hits the ground. The group realizes they’re looking at themselves from a few days ago, the day they found the canister. It’s like a mirror into the past, with the canister sitting dead center. Before anyone can do anything, the vortex closes.

As this happens Reggie tries to send a psychic message through the vortex, to himself or whomever is on the other side. He gets the feeling his message went through, but he has no idea who received it. There was something different about that one, and Reggie can’t get it out of his head. It didn’t have the usual “Flux Storm” feeling he and Nash had identified earlier. Much worse: it felt like Frank.

This starts Reggie thinking, and he has a weird sense of time branching off and echoing. He feels like they just created another reality: one where the canister was never retrieved, leaving other-Ulla without her nanobot army. And somehow, it has something to do with Frank. But is it friendly Frank, or enemy Frank? No way to tell. This throws Reggie into a tailspin, and he starts to doubt this reality as he babbles about Frank.

Ulla asks who Frank is, and Reggie gives her a short version. He’s terrified of facing Frank again. Now he can’t stop thinking about it.

About halfway to the city, night falls and they make camp. Trae notices they’re close enough to get a signal now, and he quickly hops online to research local news. What he finds is all bad. He keeps it to himself.
