There he is in person, the hiding Axis thinks excitedly. Famed SL explorer Baker Bloch, about to pass into Elderglen and exit Fern. This is my chance!
Then in the Elderglen Infohub, Baker Bloch was again surprised, this time by the clear indication that famed SL explorer Magellen Linden had already visited the newly risen Nascera continent.
On the opposite wall, a frog with an interesting golden orb placed in front of it.
Baker tries his hand at playing a lute sitting on a stage in the corner of the Infohub’s main room. To his complete surprise, he subsequently strums a beautiful, complex tune of short duration. Ahh, but it must just be the magic of the place, and not any latent talent showing through.
A man walks into the infohub. Baker’s complex music grinds to a halt.
Baker watches him pass straight through the infohub, not glancing toward him, and exiting through the back door.
… but there was no one on the back porch. From its northwest corner Baker then spies the broken teleporting machine — one day too early.
Axis’ plan had worked! The black king strikes again.
