Heath is getting close. He stands there, at the edge of the world, memories gathering behind him like the wind at his back. Terra firma is just within grasp. He can feel the breeze sweeping up the walls of the dam, the earth rising to meet his steps.
But as he gazes at the embankment slopes, he pauses. His old bones hurt just looking at it.
‘Damn that man,’ Heath thinks. If he wants his apology, he’s going to have to work for it.
Coming back up to the real world… This is the last prompt, but second-to-last page. Hopefully the transition between Conservatory and earth is ok, hah.
More info that’s only relevant to me: the architectural draft overlain on the first panel is for the Old Waddell Dam (previously Frog Tanks Dam,) an arched concrete dam constructed on the Agua Fria in the ~20s. The earthen embankment dam is modeled after the New Waddell Dam, which was constructed in the 80s to increase the capacity of Lake Pleasant. You can look at the original blueprints here (thanks, Beardsley)
For the Conservatory Event – Soulsong quest. Prompt is “Something Gained,” which is part of the Temple of Silence route.
