The players have a very very important meeting to attend at Castle Swoon.
The only problem is that Harmony, the sentient gate, is very very sad, their frown making it impossible for them to open. No one can get in or out, which is a problem for Swoon’s blooming franchising businesses.
Having artificial workers is cheap: the success with Harmony, instead of real live guards with salaries, turned out great. Swoon offloaded workers to replace with an artificial workforce, while the previous employees sought fortune on other islands.
