Our heroes having been taken hostage by the Technocrats of The Hive and given an ultimatum, decided to grant themselves a third option and made a visit to Rose.
On providing her the terms the Technocracy had decreed in exchange for our heroes lives, Rose simply whisked away into the house stating that she would assist them in dealing with both the Nephandus at large and The Hive.
Several members of the party became lost within Rose’s home and learned that it is truly labyrinthine in nature, regardless of how it may appear without.
In the mean time, Rose created a powerful effect, leading many government agencies to discover The Hive which had only recently been re-established. Red tape came up like a wall, leaving our heroes with a 48 hour window to breathe and think; however, Rose did not stop at simply providing the team with time to think.
Leading everyone (now reassembled after their misadventures) to another room, Rose created an effect that caused a Technocratic Satellite to fall through Earth’s atmosphere, mostly dissipating from the descent. One fragment of this Satellite fell on the corner apartment of the Nephandus’ hide out, causing a large portion of the building to collapse injuring many people, and killing just as many, including the Nephandus himself.
At this juncture, Rose declared that she would fill open the ground beneath The Hive and swallow it in Molten Rock. Kaiden, fearing the spiritual repercussions of such a grand scale event occurring in a Void Engineer facility, proposed a contract with Rose to stay her hand for 1 day in an effort to avoid a catastrophe in the Umbral Realms.
Rose agreed on the terms that our heroes would also deal with The Hive to her satisfaction within that 24 hour period, or she would move forward with her plan.
