Everything is moving into place in Black Mountain, and Nale is working his way towards the final confrontation. But before he does, he has some other business he needs to take care of.

I can't wait for the new installment, this series is getting better and better.



BTW will there be a continuation of the two stories done for the serpentis earlier (winter came while you were away, and summer breeze) ?

Like always a really good Chron... I also can't wait for the next installment but I have to admit that I'm slowly getting used to having to wait a few weeks every few pages. Wink

Doesn't make it much easier though.

Btw.

WTB Skinner T2 or Faction. Convo if you can provide! Twisted Evil

Edit: Or should I have said "Abraxas' Modified Skinner"?

Great as always. Feels kind of strange to say that at every chronicle :)
Anyway: Would be nice to have some kind of "inventory" of characters, because if this happens over such a lonmg timespan i kind of forgot who is who. Maybe as an improvment for the next longer series of stories.

Agreed... I'm a bit lost on some of the "side characters".
Usually reading on to see how they "behave" to figure out what "side" they belong to...
Not quite optimal

A link at the top of each chron to a page listing the characters would be very much appriciated.

Yea I'd also go for a quick character summary at the top of every Black Mountain chronicle. I had no idea who Zetyn was, or which side he was on, until I figured out he was in the maze (and the bad guy was in control of that).

guh-guh-guh-gu/slams jaw shut.
Wowzers. Twisted, exciting, and yet enjoyable.
Sir Abraxas, this story is astounding. I do hope you have other works on tap, while we impatiently wait for this one to conclude!

it just keeps getting better! Best so far imho..
This one has it all: hope, dispair, faith, anger, lengthy read, a touch of amazement, perfect character play and ambience...well constructed stories like these actually almost make you feel you're running the maze yourself.

damn you abraxas, now i really start getting impatient for the next installment

Fantastic. Easily the best yet.

I particularly loved the way Nale turned the tables by playing the hand he was dealt but changing the rules.

If only the rest of CCP's content matched your outstanding work... you really need to start writing Eve news after you're done with Black Mountain.

There's none planned - the story was designed as a two-parter - though if I find an interesting angle on it, I have no problem with writing more about those characters.

Let's see. On Nale's team there was Monas the brawler, Zetyn the tech guy, Berkhes who died earlier, and Shiqra the traitor. Draea's team had Krezek, Polok, Falau, and Yorlas the traitor.

Other characters include:

Hona, the Angel captain who got drawn into all this
Alad, Draea's recruiter and mentor
Jonak, Nale's interviewer when he was inducted into the conspiracy
Placx, an annoying assistant in Draea's training facility
Alad, a merchant on an Angel station
Riserakko Isenairos, chief advisor for Sisters security.

Some of these secondary characters will return before Black Mountain concludes.

Hold on tight, then. Wink The climax will be published this Monday, followed by two epilogues (kinda).

Well actually the merchant is called Arak.

Again Abraxas... truly truly amazing. It brings the entire EVE universe to life even more!

Thank you!
