Abel was not surprised to see the Prime looking unafraid. But he was also happy that the Prime of Unity was understanding how bad things must have gotten for Ascended Beings to simply show themselves to a mortal.
“I have been reaching out to find many timelines falling silent to the Ascended and Descended beings as the Fleets of Fate expand their influence. Each time, I have traced the inevitable fall of a timeline to the Fleets of Fate to the moment when the Prime of Unity is forcibly incorporated and assimilated into their numbers. As you may have felt, the Dragon is a descended being, a being of great destructive power that is only kept in check by the immense love of the connected expressed through their connection.
As each subsequent timeline has fallen to the FoF, the Dragon you contain has grown in power, Prime. Soon enough it will reach a critical power level where even you with the full power of the concensus behind you could not prevent it from dragging your entire networked society down into a hell dimension spawned by its corrupted nature. In other timelines, the FoF have even renamed the Dragon of Unity, the Dragon of Fate, and have planted seeds of its cults on worlds too primitive to be worthy of their forced assimilation yet, preparing them for their future incorporation.
I came here to the timeline that has been the home base of the Fleets of Fate to see what aspect of your personal fall is connected to their overwhelming rise. And I have learned it.
They need you to be the host of the Dragon instead of its prison, because you are also the focus of so much love from the Unity connected. Once they have incorporated you, Prime, they will flip the Unity Consensus to their ways like flipping a switch. They will use your strength of will, your personal charisma, and your historically wise council to poison the minds of the consensus with misinformation and deception.
And the worst part is, I have not yet found a way to save you Prime, and for that I am sorry.
Or at least I have found no way to save you in the present.
The catalyst for the Fleets of Fate breeching our mutual timeline again will be their recovery of a single item. A K’ias relic known as the Rurik Scepter.
It is a dangerous relic once used by Warmonger to twist the mind of the K’ias Emperor Mar’un’ga to his descended service. And it has been used countless times since to horrifying effect.
The fleets of Fate have taken it from the minions of Warmonger in their conquered timelines and will sync its power with that of the version in our timeline.
The Rurik scepter in our mutual timeline is currently in the hands of the rogue Church of One Inquisitor Mortis Leonin.
You must choose or create a servant of true loyalty to you Prime. Someone the FoF nor Warmonger nor the other ancient evils can turn to their disparate sides.
And you cannot go yourself, if you were to personally go it would give the Dragon in this timeline access to time travel and our mutual destruction would be accelerated. I know you have advanced cloning technology, I am sure you will find a solution…if not, one of your loyal emissaries would put the fear of god back into Mortis Leonin.
Meanwhile, my friend Kincaid will be able to help you plan a defense against the inevitable incursions of the Fleets of Fate into the zone where Leonin is hiding.
This map will show you where your agent can intercept Mortis Leonin. But above all else your agent must make sure the Rurik scepter does not fall into the hands of the agents of the Fleets of Fate.”
Abel held up coordinates, which Prime would recognize as those of the planet Refuge and specifically a location in the south lands of the Goblin Lands.
