There in the centre of what appeared to be a warehouse a lit lantern sat on a table strewn with cards. He beckoned his friends over and Erik stepped forward to call into the flickering darkness stating that they didn’t want to hurt whoever was hiding in the room.

With that the Silver Ravens were back in business, all be it with a different leadership, and no idea what had really happened to the previous silver ravens.
The next couple of weeks were spent spreading the word and getting the populace on their side. Another team was recruited and the rebellion was making good headway, despite the Dottari becoming more of a problem as word spread.
