A tension hung in the air now. A sensation of... something... now that new questions and older grievances had been raised.

Councillor Phoenyx was right: it was best to take stock and consider things from a sensible distance.

A date - the September Consilium - was loosely sketched in; that left a month for reflection and the possibility of politicking for those who cared for such things.

The meeting didn't wind down. It simply came to halt. Phoenyx's words, underpinned by those of Guru, served as a breaker and before long the Awakened of Sacramento went their own ways into the wider world.

Time to put this into continuity. A new informal thread will open this weekend.
