    I wonder what that small favor, Daimen asked Zorian for is? Also the scene Fortov was satisfying.

    It appears that Zorian and Zach may have unexpected help with summing primordial instead of waiting till they can do it all on their own. It's probably for the best because time is short and the quicker they can finalize some of their plans the better.

    How many loops remains?

    It has updated

    Obviously stealing an airship is the only sensible solution. This does remind me that sometime in the past Zorian mused on how he'd never steal an airship and how pointless it would be. I wonder if there's anything else he said he wouldn't do that he'll backflip on.

    Also the author who wrote Unspeakable Cults is like 98% a previous user of the gate. I'm pretty sure there are other people mentioned in the story who also obviously probably used the Gate although I can't think of any off the top of my head. Anyone got any ideas?

    I am kind of disappointed that Zorian was so reluctant to read the book. After seeing the corpses of sacrificed children he dove straight into reading all about the mechanics of how bloodmagic works. Seems out of character for him to get squeamish about words.

    As for other past users of the Gate, Ichl is my only suspect.

    The reveal what was used to create the loop surprised me because I once planned to use a similar concept yet didn't consider the possibility for it here.

    I suspect that Zorian didn't want to read it because he wasn't expecting it to have any relevant information for him. It's stated that the books don't actually contain any specifics about the magic.

    I doubt Ichl is a looper and I wouldn't like him to be. I prefer him to be a "hard-working" necromancer who earned his power over centuries, not some cheater. ;)

    I somehow missed the new update.

    Does the last line mean we will get Silverlake versus Ichl, even if it's indirectly?

    I was thinking that Silverlake might sell them out to Ichl in exchange for some help with her immortality project.

    But didn't she stated, she's already immortal? It's a youth she lacks.

    I think you're right, actually. Alanic's comments about her backstabbing just had me thinking in that direction.
