Journal Entry 340
Jason comes running into the house and drags me outside by force and points in the sky. The invisible airship is over Aeyllin. The Hind is out of town. We grab Alex, Cherri and Ian and beeline for the sun church. Nope, no strange priests there, so we make for the university. Sure enough, there's that asshole with the long rifle watching the steam train ring around the campus. I didn't even give him a chance. I mindlocked him soon as he was in range. He put up a fight but fuck that noise, I hit him with enough juice that I lit my hair on fire. After putting out the flames, we dragged him inside for a nice little chat without words. Well, he is in fact a priest of the sun church, but from a branch from a mostly isolated foreign city across the desert. It's his job to go around on their invisible airship and keep tags on technological growth. He's the one that sent the cannon ingredients to Wolflake, he gave Winterfield plans for the mortar and was going to deliver cannon plans to Hebiry, but we ended the war before he could. He does it to keep established civilized cities civilized. After the situation was resolved, he was going to return a few months later and erase that knowledge. He came here to look into sudden technological developments and limit their growth by force if need be. He also knows what we are. Before I could get more out of him, he up and vanished, Spymaster style. Jason ran outside and sure enough, the invisible airship was leaving. Well, soon as the Hind returns, we'll go pay him a visit. I know where he lives now.
