Plot Details So Far

At first believed to be a rivalry gone sour between the Summer Court, Payton Verhasselt fell ill after a meeting with Fiona DeRosiers. Now, Fiona has been poisoned and whoever did so attempted to pin the attack on Mr. Weeper.

  • According to Espy Briar Rose, Payton Verhasselt's bout of sickness did not come from the meeting with Fiona DeRosiers - nor did Mr. Weeper have anything to do with Fiona's poisoning.
  • Espy Briar Rose was able to catch sight of who delivered the flowers to Fiona's residence, describing them to be a hooded figure with a feminine silhouette and a lock of long white hair spilling from the interior of the hood. The robes she was wearing was covered in a subtle pattern of changing lunar phases, though the Espy was not able to recognize what faction or organization it could be linked to.

IC Rumors

  • It appears that the entourage of The Oracle have a hand to play in the calamity plaguing the Spring Court. The Moon has been identified as a party responsible for poisoning Fiona DeRosiers, perhaps even the powerful force actively blocking Briar's attempts to scrying into her court, let alone anything revolving around their Queen.
  • Mr. Weeper and Briar Rose go to the Serenity Funeral Home to follow up on a lead from Briar's divinations, searching the reflections pool in Payton Verhasselt's garden where they observed, through a vision of the past, a seemingly innocuous exchange between the Spring Queen and Gwenola where Payton discreetly hid a green box, about the size of a Chinese takeout container. What was in the box? Why didn't Payton want Gwenola to see it?

Briar tried to directly peer into Payton's past but was once again confronted by the force of something far stronger keeping Payton's information at bay. She'd mentally fought against the force and passed out, only to experience strange visions where the tarot card of Death was played before her.

Suffice it to say, their trip didn't go well. Payton is now suspicious of Briar and Mr. Weeper, believing them to potentially be working with The Fool.
