I couldn't remember who Arbalest was, so I went looking and came across the intro from back in update #91.
Which leads me to believe I know what's going on, even if I'm not sure who the dark figure is... I think I know who it's talking to.
Fun update though!
(Even if every single Lore update makes me itch for player created NPCs to get folded into the mix as soon as possible. But I get that that depends on the stand-alone character creator.)
Very Interesting bit of Lore.
I like the idea of CAP and not so secretly hope it's a nod to "the guy in the hat" from Stan and Lou.
