Dissemination

Fantastic magical powers aren't the only things the daeva can provide. In fact, Adana's quite certain that in the grand scheme of things, the fantastic magical powers will be minor in comparison to the technology they can provide. Sure, she and Cam are powerful, but they are two people and they can't be everywhere at once. Technology, though? Technology is easy to scale. Get a few factories up, and over a few decades, the entire world will get access. And it's not like they're on a time-crunch, anymore.

Mind you, the fantastic magical powers aren't bad, either. Even if, as it turns out, it's impossible for Cam to make magic mirrors - they anticlimactically are ordinary mirrors. Similarly, Adana tries to turn a set of mirrors into the magical versions, but gets nowhere. It's probably safe to assume daeva are incapable of making magical items through their inherent abilities. They all find this fact a terrible pity, but it's not like they can complain, considering.

Most of her alts have started bothering her for her technology, and plans to neatly integrate it with their own levels of technology. Prime is the easiest of all of them - he is in a position in charge, has little to no masquerade issues, and Cam can make trips there whenever he likes. Cypress is the most tricky, since neither Cam or Adana can actually go to Chamomile. So Cypress and Ice pick a time to head over to Pantheon when Cam and Adana are free.

And the Chamomile contingent collect notes and schematics and prototypes and quantities of some of the more difficult-to-come-by raw materials and put them all on a float platform Cam supplies, and bring them to their colony.

"We should probably disassemble the masquerade - at least partially - soon," says Isabella. "I'm not sure if it's better to go for broke and come clean about everything from otherworldly magic to zombie alts or... cherrypick."
