Testimony of Teddy Hubble regarding the events of TD+16
From the best understanding I have, Bernadoni has occasioned for himself a pocket of escape through the mid-zone. I knew the Estanzione Council had allowed him to board due to some special circumstance or conditional arrangement, but much of that group’s workings remained mysterious to me. The organizers of organizers, they said little that could remain unsaid. Do I feel tricked or betrayed? I was only a visitor, if for all of my adolescent and adult life, but really, only a visitor, anyhow… I do not know that resolving the perhaps drunken vision of a myriad ships reported by Anteas Rowe would lead to a useful explanation as to what has occurred. It is also doubtful that Bernadoni’s vanishing was merely a physical transfer to another ship, as some on the crew are beginning to suggest. He was standing there before me, and into a slip of blue light he stepped and was gone. Not just gone, though, but with Zincovovich standing in his place, utterly calm, as if no other event in his universe had been plausible. Even stranger that he greeted me by name. Far less than a little clean-cut, despite his otherwise military bearing.
I have played many games, and give very little seriousness to much that others might credit, but his arrival disturbs me some.
