Zodiac, Highlander, Azago and company, are stranded within the Sigil of Ab Kejil a strange sub-dimension somewhere below the twilight realm.
The chapter begins on the roof-top of Banco Caribe were the helicopter is called in to extract the mages.
Part one – Confinement:
Azago grabs the Hildebrand Recording and attempts to Apportate it into safe keeping however his space magic doesn’t seem to work.
The helicopter rides seems to go on too long and nothing can been seen through the thick fog outside eventually Zodiac Highlander and Azago become suspicious. On investigating they discover the nature of their confinement – they are trapped in a maze like dimension.
As time passes the mages loose hope. When suddenly Filipe is talking to them over the radio, talking them out of suicide and relating information given to him by the Voodoo Mages briefly encountered earlier during the race to the Tower.
Part two – Tower
With advise passed along through the radio the group figures out how to summon the elevator – but the Sigil detects their desire to leave and figuring out how to use the elevator takes a long while.
Later while within an Escher-esque lobby Zodiac scans through the Fate-sphear with his “Sybils Sight” he discovers all fate to be tied to the inner most core of his pattern – a place he considers his inner most virtue. Azago does the same and finds his fate is also tied to his virtue.
Part three – Means of Exile, Virtue
On realizing this the mages meditate on virtue while tracing their path back to the church – were Filepe tells them is the location of the Gateway back to the material world.
