Being part of the Tarnished Coast, Elwin and I were excited to explore the tropical paradise that is Magus Stones. It didn’t take us long to prepare inside Rata Sum and we only grabbed a few essentials before rushing outside into the monster infested wilderness. But Elwin’s happy thoughts turned sour once he caught sight of the wind riders.

While I waited for Elwin to meet me in Rata Sum, I decided to talk to a few asurans about their recent movement to the surface and the quick construction of their new city. I hardly learned anything of importance. Most of them shooed me off saying I was interrupting important research. Perhaps they were worried I was spying on their research, but I really just wanted to compliment them on the architecture their people have designed.

After killing enough time, Elwin showed up and we left the eastern gate to fully explore Riven Earth.

Reiko and the Ministry of Purity have been gaining momentum, but Miku and I have been exploring more options to dissolve their organization. One of Miku’s goals was to track down Jinnai and find out what actually happened on the day the afflicted attacked Tahnnakai Temple.

When I last left Miku, we had infiltrated Tahnnakai Temple to rescue her younger brother Ashu. He refused to come with us, which forced us to flee and rethink our strategy. In this brief moment where I have time to myself before reuniting with Miku, I took on a few of the Lei Jeng’s troubles. Firstly was to deal with the arrival of a Kurzick and a Luxon emissary to Raisu Palace. They had come to complain about the Kaineng gangs that still roam their lands, and since this is the Ministry of Purity’s fault it is also naturally Emperor Kisu’s responsibility to remove the gangs. If only the Kurzicks and Luxons could stop fighting each other for one minute and deal with the problem themselves I wouldn’t have to intervene.

Eager to get rid of the gangs and the emissaries, I headed off to the Silent Surf in the Jade Sea. With all the fuss made about the gangs I expected to be easily outnumbered, but the Am Fah posed little threat to my group. When I spotted the last couple of groups, they were already in combat with the local (vicious) wildlife. Perhaps if the emissaries waited long enough the problem could have resolved itself.
