"...And while the season is slack, and there is so little to do," commented Leonie, "it will be good practice for all of you to look everywhere you can think of for abandoned matrixes. Some of them have been forgotten from the Ages of Chaos. I have also heard rumor that Kermiac of Aldaran is trying to train matrix workers in his own way. That sort of thing should not be allowed, but the Council says that, if I intervene, I will be recognizing that Domain; and so for the time being I can do nothing. In time to come--well, enough of speechmaking," she concluded. "It should be enough to know that in this you serve our people."
She went away, and the little group of younger workers in training gathered to look after her, each one secretly hoping that he or she would be the one to reclaim one of the lost matrixes from the Ages of Chaos; perhaps one of the old, forbidden matrix weapons from that Age.
