Entry 1
The Orochi Underground, In the same room as the final Smiler mech, on one of the subway tracks behind the mech.
A mouldy deck of cards. Shuffle. Lay them out. Minor arcana rip and tear within the Dark Tower. Entry 2
Orochi Tower - Váli, Alpha floor: in the first drone storage room after the red keycard door, accessible from the first room on your right.
Flip the Three of Daggers. Smiles above the table, daggers underneath. Or was it the other way around? What does the Fool win when he unites the Demon and the Goddess? When will his impossible game turn on him? Entry 3
Orochi Tower - Sycoil, Alpha floor: in one of the offices before the first keycard reader.
Flip the Dark Tower. The Tower has always existed, through the Ages, but it was not always a tower. It was always guided by two sets of hands. Say what you will, sweetling, it's the longest running marriage in this reality. But there has been a split. VARIABLE DETECTED! There is an element in the Fourth that was not in the others. Entry 4
Orochi Tower - Zagan, Alpha floor: above a scientist's corpse, surrounded by werewolves.
Flip the Messenger. He and [sic] bubbles and boils and blasphemes. You had a moment, the two of you. Eh, sweetling? How lovely. He has the advantage over us. His limitations more closely resemble yours. Comforting, like a pleasantly warmed poison poured into the ear. He let you in. Do you think that is all he will do? Do you think he has let a little thing like death stop him from his original mission? He still burns with embarrassment over that. You understand. We do not. We cannot blush. He let you in. Don't you let him in. Entry 5
Orochi Tower - QBL, Alpha floor: through the first door on the right, after the first Orochi drone pair.
Flip the Broken Wings. When you hear the snicker-snap crack of their wings, it is already too late. You are already past the agency of screams. They are a glimpse to a distant past and a future. They will give you a gift. You may not like its implications. But you planted its seeds before. Entry 6
Orochi Tower - Anansi, Alpha floor: in a room with four Psychic Sparring Dummies.
Flip the Babbling Cyclops. He will threaten you. He does not make idle threats. He will promise to destroy you. There are more than the obvious ways to destroy something. In the glowing eye of the cyclops, your reality will change. Your identity will no longer belong to you. Cue commercial.


Entry 7
Orochi Tower - Faust, Alpha floor: on the other side of one of the locked doors you use side offices to get around.

The Black Signal

Ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss-I am your Cymothoa exigua tongue-let me in.

Hiya, Chuck.

Entry 1
Orochi Tower - QBL, Alpha floor: in the back of the office with the readable issue of Esteem.
Have I been distant, lately? What is "lately" anyway? Been standing with one foot outside this whole time convention, like being at the edge of a party and hearing all the conversations as one buzz. It's trippy. I get it now. The Zzz-Zzz voice. The bastards. Entry 2
Orochi Tower - Plethron, Alpha floor: in the first accessible office.
Maybe it's time to let go. Past mistakes. Past obligations. Past fears. They are a prison. They handcuffed me to Tokyo. Now...now I'm free. There is a whole world out there of joys and dandies and how-do-you-do's. I'm free to get out there now. Thanks to you.

Thanks for everything.

See you, Chuck ...

Entry 3
Orochi Tower - Boardroom, At the far end of the penthouse balcony.
