=== Into the Machine ===

* [[Memory Sapphires Vision]]
* [[Righteous Judgment]]
* [[Bezul's Proposition|Note]] from [[Bezul]], suggesting business proposition: essence containing gems for artifacts of similar power level. Or, refills of two levels lower.
* [[Rave Against the Machine]]
* Possible note from [[Hammer in the Woods]], asking for assistance: Maduka finally lost it and needs to be taken out, but need to frame the other camp. Asking solars to do the dirty work and possibly take blame.
* [[The Outside Calls]]
* Plot exposition from Adrios' [[Forgotten Suns Essence_Journeys|essence trip]]. Blue cunaria in two places: a field on the grounds of the palace of the Maiden of Endings, and somewhere within the Violet Bier of Sorrows. Edict prevents it from growing elsewhere. By now, few have heard of it. Finds out possible allies who might be willing to get it: Lytek, god of exaltation, who hates the deathlords. Nara-O, head of the Forbidding Manse of Ivy, who would be interested in the process. Both would ask for serious favors in return. Lytek would probably be more discrete.

=== Orichalcum Manse ===
* '''Location''': [[Rathess]]
* '''Interference''': Manse flow is doesn't work because the [[Dragon Kings]] have degenerated. Some contact with an ancient King needed.
* [[Locating the Orichalcum Manse]]
* Need for cunaria, solar hearthstone, celestial lion talon, quintessence flask
* [[Ophidian Kata Rings]]
* The Goblin King. Abyssal consort(s). Griffin as Akuma.
* Finding Soul Mirror
* Waking the Dragon Kings
* Redemption of Regret, [[Three Gated Cage]]
=== Moonsilver Manse ===
* '''Location''': Somewhat near the [[City of the Shining Reefs]], in an underwater quicksilver lake.
* '''Interference''': Manse flow is doesn't work because [[Whose Whispers Chain]] has been messing with it somehow. He has a guess as to what it is, but his minions do not.
* [[Locating the Moonsilver Manse]]
* Hints about Ebon Dragon
* Chimeral lunar akuma?
* Infernals up to something -- taining the Well of Souls so that when Auto drinks from it, he becomes corrupted.
* This should be related in some manner to the Scarlet Empress plotline, including information about the coming of the [[Ebon Dragon]].
* Need to untangle the manse from some sort of machinations of those who follow [[Whose Whispers Chain]] in some way.
* "You could then use the SE's return as a plot not only to deliver the Dragon Bloods, but to exact revenge on Autocthon, who needs fresh souls for the fire, and what he starts to get are a ton of Tainted souls, that work their havok from within, Yozi cults beginning in his bowels, and eventually, Auto is NOT killed--because that would only deliver a new Malfean, which the Yozi will want to avoid, but instead, a powerful ally, who isn't Bound by his own name. The Dragon Bloods are delivered into the Yozi's hands to be their catspaws, and through them and the other cults, they work on Auto--who can help shatter their bonds once and for all..." - Jakk Bey
=== Starmetal Manse ===
* '''Location''': A mountain top outside [[Yane]].
* '''Interference''': Asteroid/ship was converted into a prison for a Third Circle demon about 1000 years ago, during the Shogunate.
* [[Locating the Starmetal Manse]]
* [[Sermon at the Gate]]
* [[Entering the Starmetal Manse]]
* [[Against the Aurora]]
* [[Meeting the Warden]] - a spirit who nominally runs the manse. Information about the prisoner.
* [[What Do You Do With a Third Circle Demon?]] - handling the demon. Maybe a deal for information about the [[Ebon Dragon]]? Abjuration of the Maidens?
* [[The Drop]] - if the manse starts falling.
* [[Rewiring The Gate]] - If they need to, how to get into the manse on other days.
* Asteroid base
* Prison to third circle demon?
* Maybe asteroid starts plummeting towards city?
* When the gate opens, maybe some immaterial 2nd circles enter to try to free their "parent"?
* Need a scene where the circle must fight the demon and keep the asteroid from crashing at the same time.
* The top of the mountain holds a portal to the Starmetal Manse, not the manse itself. A ritual space exists on top of the mountain, and if the Calibration Gate is summoned there, the gate will open into the manse instead of into [[Yu-Shan]]. The manse itself is an asteroid observation base floating far above Creation.
=== Soulsteel Manse ===
* '''Location''': [[Gethemane]], location of where soulsteel first originated.
* '''Interference''': Vodak is drawing on the manse's energy?
* [[Locating the Soulsteel Manse]]
* Vision Consorting with the Dead
* Mountain Folk
* Infernals?
* Connect the circle with the Mountain Folk, in order to make the Jade Manse a bit more approachable.
* Gethamane
* Minions of Vodak, possibly Vodak himself, abyssals (either on the same quest, or looking for ways to exploit Vodak).
* Long before the solars originally hollowed the mountain, the place that would be Gethamane held the greatest city of the Nameless Ones. When Autochthon unmade them, some of the fallout spilled into the pit vacated by the city. After constructing the Soulsteel Manse in the pit, Autochthon made mountains to fill in the hole. These mountains never quite matched the surrounding stone, so numerous faults evolved, and these unwittingly made an ideal starting point for the solars who founded Gethamane.
=== Jade Manse ===
* '''Location''': Deep under the [[Imperial Mountain]]
* '''Interference''': The Empresses infernalism?
* [[Locating the Jade Manse]]
* Just getting there will be the main threat, but potentially some "corrupted" essence flows. Possibly related to Ebon Dragon.
* Infernals paving the way for Ebon Dragon
* Stag's akuma foe.
=== Finale ===
* Ebon Dragon & Empress
* Autochthon wakes
* Breaking the world?
[[Exalted Aspects]]
[[Mark of Autochthon]]
=== Scene ===
'''Dramatic Purpose''':
'''Metagaming Purpose''':
'''Field Testing''':
[[Category:Encounter Page]] [[campaign::Forgotten Suns| ]]
