The Clockwork Turn
Disaster / Destruction
Two weeks after awakening, joy and hope turns to fear as it seems the clockwork begin to follow new directives.
Souls, new and old, used to be free in Synthacrosia to live unburdened as they choose. It was their chance to live a second life.
However, when the clockwork turned, souls once again became burdened. The clockwork began systematically scouring the floors, starting with floor 1, collecting those who lived there. It became known as "processing". Those collected and processed were given crystal bracelets to mark them as survivors. But not everyone made it through processing -- seemingly at random, nearly half the souls brought through processing were murdered, and their soul coins were collected.
