The Eternals would
have made an appearance in the CCG had the game continued far enough. They were always intended to be an isolated element of the story to be revealed gradually. There's a part of me that would have preferred that option - and there's a part of me that's really sad I never got to write the Day of the Bullet
storyline the way it was originally intended (the details are no different here - just revealed all at once and with none of the great bluffs, misdirects, and other surprises). The Poole and Alex reveals, especially. I loved the outline for those parts of the fiction cycle soooo
much. Ah well...
Glad you like the dark, the twisted, and the grey. It's all exactly as I wanted for the setting and that's one of the most gratifying things about Crafty - that I'm finally getting to show off the setting that should have been.
And yes, you're supposed
to root for Century. He's the ultimate underdog.
