25 Venusday - 1 Sunsday:
Deciding that they weren't actually in a rush, the Circle actually ended up arriving at the doors to the Vault of 1 Sunsday in Ascending Wood. The Circle interacted with the Wyld Hunt. Feard couldn't get into the Engine room, Kviik talked about how bright and shiny it was. The Jade Falcon may have a colony of mice of the sun. Nezri decided that the oath he wanted DS to take in Nexus wasn't convincing enough, so he wanted DS to take another oath with a sorcerer he trusted. DS wasn't inclined to go along with it. Kazu was willing to take an oath in DS's place. Xian Lin tried to make friends with Captain Shi-Renn. Kviik ran off when they landed, DS gave her a skull to work as trappings of death, but she came to the conclusion this made her a priestess. They examined the doors.
Marilee Floros decided to try knocking on the doors to the vault, but it didn't work. Neither did a crow bar. DS suggested Feard use the Eye to change the door into something else. The door tried to react to fix itself, but Marilee managed to get to the locking mechanism to unlock it, granting access. The doors tried to close, but DS kept them open as they got supplies in. Realizing "Erigone" was going in, Nezri jumped in after her and insisted on staying when she refused to leave
