The battered Union column returned to the city under the cover of nightfall. The mood was somber, serious. Never before had the forces of Union failed to accomplish their aim. And yet, there was cause for relief, if nothing else. Though some grave injuries were inflicted, none among the Union forces had perished. That, if nothing else, was a victory.

And it wasn’t a complete failure. The Union forces had drawn the Emperor into battle, and had seen the extent of his power and had made contact with the gods. They had also revealed another truth - the Seekers, those claiming to be seeking the gods, were in fact lead from the shadows by the gods themselves. Rumors swirled around the city, as did awe that the gods had chosen them for a sacred task, as it were.

That wasn’t the only surprise to be had, however. The Gigan general Valeria arrived not two days later, under the cover of night. She spoke with the counsel, before making a general announcement. Her face and tone are as stern and sharp as ever.

“Greetings, people of Union. You’ve created quite the stir in my city, I must say. This “emperor” was… not especially well received you might say. We are an old nation, one that survived the cataclysm. We consider ourselves democratic, enlightened. That some old relic has emerged and claimed leadership hasn’t gone over the best, although the fool puppets in the senate are trying to get people to fall in line. Protests are all over Gigas, but in spite of that general mobilization has begun. It seems like you made an interesting impression, however, some citizens have come forward testifying that your people saved their lives. And in this age of social media, nobody can really quell those voices, lest of all the government.”

She clears her throat, and actually looks a bit amused.

“Things have gotten interesting. I guess I owe you some degree of thanks. You saved my people, and I joined the army to serve the people of Gigas, not a dying man in a tin can. I’ve brought something. A token, if you will. With that, consider my debt repaid. I expect when next we meet, it will be on the field of battle, and I expect it will come soon. Don’t disappoint me, Union. I hope we have a good battle.”

[Valeria has gifted Sceptilite, Blazikenite, and Swampertite to Union. All characters, regardless of Event involvement, may select one Mega Stone for themselves. Additionally, characters, as well as all Pokemon that took part in any Event log, will have their level raised to 70. IC conversations are open in this post]
