One by one, the pieces become aware of the Spectator. A Cataloger seeks to decipher the twists and turns of the game. The Wayward Knight yet remains silent, carrying on her Crusade in the Black King's lair. Her piece is missing from the game floor.
The Wayward Knight's Damsel yet fights, seeking the answer to a question that should never have been asked.
The Knight once of the law advances, though the Spectator cannot discern whether it be for revenge or rescue.
A former Knight, once holding the flame of hope high before her fall, who tempered the Wayward Knight's resolve, finally leaves the board with the Bishop's gift.
Outside the stadium, the rain and fog herald the Otherworldly's arrival. The Spectator would cry out, but her thoughts turn to a Queen in black and lost possibilities. Beside her, a sword long unused rests in its sheath, a reminder of the game before the board birthing Zalgo aroused public awareness of the Black King's unending game.
Her search for a new King and Queen continues, lest the White Army be swallowed by the tide and the Black King claim victory with finality.
