This page took a lot longer than it should have, as I had to keep reworking it and tweaking the layout, and I got sidetracked by some other efforts that were intended to make this page (and the pages yet to come) easier and better. That…that didn’t pan out.

But! We’re on the cusp of an important development, and soon we’ll get some action, and we’ll start to see what all of this exposition has to do with what we saw in Chapter One.
