      To all my Mamas, and Papas, and Uncles, and Aunts,

      The preparations are ready! We already tackled the external “Flesh” vault of The Whisper’s power in the Echo Forest, and assuming that we are still committed to “Plan Egan” then it is finally time to go into the Echo Forest to assault the internal “Mind” vault of The Whisper.

      I’m not going to lie (mostly because Zyra gave me the word of power “Truth” back when we fought the Mar’Ganin Snake-Eye Hags). So, in the spirit of truth, here it goes… honestly, this whole thing is going to to be pretty far out there. I’d advise eating a bunch of fun-time mushrooms before we venture into the forest, like ol’ Hadrianus Raider style, because things might get weird.

      We’ll need to kick down the door to a section of The Whisper’s Mind, which I’ve confirmed is indirectly accessible through one of the Echo Trees in the Gnostic Peaks. The idea is that we’re going to basically bathe in the… I don’t know… mind blood (?) of The Whisper, and then invade his inner…. um… Thought Realm (but its probably also actually an actual planar… pocket… place?) or whatever.

      And then you’ll like… gear up and attack The Whisper’s inner Thought Realm with my Word Power, or whatever… I don’t know. Let’s just say that it might be hard to know if we win… or maybe not?

      Go team NorthWatch! Go Plan Egan!

      P.S. for those of you with a proper education, you will already be aware that the word “aunts” rhymes with the word “haunts”. For those of you without a proper education, don’t fret, it’s never too late to learn!

        And you know what… since I’m worried that you might not believe me about how abstract things are likely to get when we invade the planar mind place thingy of the whisper, I wanted to draw you the following map of my own mind, so that you can maybe make some plans about how you want to deploy the… brain arrows… or whatever, that I’m currently equipped with.

      • Expression: This represents the various ways that The Wandering Shrine interacts with the world. The Words of Power associated with Expression drive his direct personal magical abilities, as well as his personalized style or approach for interfacing with the world around him.
        Intellect: This shapes The Wandering Shrine’s understanding of the knowable world around him, influencing his active knowledge, his curiosity, and his ability to turn abstract thinking into practical comprehension.
        Psyche: This governs the drivers behind the scenes of The Wandering Shrines internal personality. His Psyche is what influences his gut reactions to moral conflicts, and helps to define his emotional response and personal preference in matters of loyalty, trust, ambition, and adherence to social contracts.
      • In closing, the above charts and descriptive text should help to explain…. whatever they help to explain. If you don’t like it, well maybe you should blame Rin for choosing “Analysis” as one of my Words of Power,

        P.S. Critically, I don’t know if the above map of my own mind is helpful, or if it is the opposite of helpful. Just… you know… FYI.

        Hello my lovely family!

        So as you likely know, there is a scary stone… maw… cave place in the center of the Echo Forest. That’s going to be our target for tonight.

        The great news is that our efforts within the Mind Vault of The Whisper were so successful that I now have an internal foothold, and I’m going to be able to portal us straight into this cave-mouth thing, this evening.

        Now that we have implanted Moxie’s Mind Harpoons into the Whisper’s plane-brain thing, the goal is to try to accomplish as much as we can of Plan Egan, where we try to start overwriting the personality/self/essence of The Whisper with… you know… me. At the same time, now that I have a connection to both the Heart/Power Vault (through the Shaper’s Grove) as well as the Mind Vault (plane-brain), I’ll be working hard to divest The Whisper of his raw stores of power.

        I’ll talk about it more tonight, but if we pull off at least most of what I’m thinking we might accomplish tonight, then there is a good chance that I’ll be playing hot potato with a significant amount of magic raw-plane-stuff energy. If that happens, we’ll need to decide what do with it. For example, maybe we decide to just toss it out the window into the endless planar void, or maybe you could ask to me channel it straight over to Valeron and The EvendTide Fields. Or if he’ll be there, maybe Wizard Xisteau and I could try to use his fancy wand to channel a store of that planar magic into the planar Magisterium of The Fated SpellWeaver

        Let’s do it!

        P.S. I’m thinking that maybe, hopefully, this central cave is more like the Whisper’s ear than his fang-filled mouth. Fingers crossed.
