With the possible advent of Ragnarök averted the band adventured into the inky depths of Soku-no-kumi to find and rescue the Amatsukami. When they finally arrived in Takamagahara, they were greeted by a pantheon crippled and beaten into near submission by titanic forces. Amaterasu herself was in dire need of consoling, as she blamed herself for the pantheon’s current woes and was prepared to commit seppuku to atone. After Harlan’s way with words, the band was off to find the miasmatic leader who had so efficiently undid the Amatsukami.
After weeks of searching in near sensory deprevation, Ciara’s prophetic powers and Gunnar’s Unerring Orientation led them into battle against a co-located version of Mikaboshi using Kane’s corpse as a gateway out of Tartarus. After a brief but nearly deadly battle, Mikaboshi and Huehueteol were captured and banished into the prison of prisons.

A short respite was taken to make plans for the coming disaster and to welcome the demigod Atropos Esparza into the world.
Knowing that they must proceed with the plan to trap Gaia, anyway the band plans to intentionally begin the fall of predestined dominoes and make efforts to prevent the catastrophe as it takes place.

Gaia meanwhile, had transposed the fate of her birthing chamber with that of the root of Olympus where she had planned to destroy the pillars of creation, set there by the Dodekatheon. After discovering this ploy the band high-tailed it to Terra’s Grecian analogue and captured the giant earth-mother with a tool fashioned of a lifeless remnant rib-bone of Ymir.
The band returned triumphant, sealing Gaia within Tartarus, only to immediately begin enacting their plan to save Mexico City’s population from sacrifice at the hands of The Keepers of the World. A battle of both wit and brawn commenced between rival bands of gods. The aftermath left two dead divinities and once believed friends in manacles within Durance Vile.
Meanwhile, the war in heaven took a drastic turn for the Aesir as Hod abandoned his brethren and Baldur fell ill and passed into the afterlife. Seeing the beginning of the Ragnarök prophecies beginning, Odin vanished, seemingly abdicating the throne of Asgard. On Earth, the frost giants, unchecked, rode forth out of Jotunheim and declared war on the mortal plane. The forces of Ehekatoyaatl gained more strength by assassinating the divine spies Ouranos and Aphrodite. Dark days clouds gather on both the mortal plane and the overworld as a result…
