OOC: Many apologies for the lateness of this. I'm trying to finish a
course by the August 24th deadline, as well as having projects
stacking up at work.

Vesper can sense that a rift is opening, or very soon going to open,
atop that pyramid in the complex.

There is still no response from Ted.

OOC: Going to split Vesper and Alex off in to their own posts...
