A group of gatecrashers are sent on a scouting mission to an exoplanet relatively near to our own solar system. The planet has favorable atmospheric conditions and life, but something is off about it. There seems to be a human settlement on the planet, one unknown to transhumanity. They have medieval technology but are otherwise healthy. Furthermore, there are strange four-legged beasts roaming the nearby wilderness. What secrets does this world hold? Is it a TITAN trap? No trace of their technology or the Exsurgent virus has been found, but who knows what secrets lie hidden, just waiting for the gatecrashers to find?
After an epic odyssey spanning the galaxy, a disparate team of con artists, scientists, and Firewall agents have finally cornered their quarry. There will be no more chases around the solar system or to a distant exoplanet. No more undercover missions or political intrigue. Now, there is only victory or death. A TITAN has taken over a remote Bernal Sphere habitat in the outer system. It appears to be damaged or only partially operational, as there are gaps in the station’s defenses, gaps large enough for the team to enter the habitat and attempt to stop it.The secrets that lay at the heart of the station may change the future of transhumanity, if the team survives long enough to report back to Firewall. Duality concludes NOW!
The end draws near! After a long and maddening quest, the Firewall team has tracked down their quarry, the entity known as Loren Kristol. It has seized a colony in the outer system known as Alpha Plus. Fortunately, a nearby colony ship, destined for another solar system, is still close enough to farcast the team. Unfortunately, the ship has been compromised by TITAN technology. Regardless of the danger, the team must attempt to stop Loren before it completes its plan.
The Firewall team has been captured and sent to a secret lab and prsion run by the Ultimates. The lab is now run by Loren Kristol, or at least a being that claims to be Loren. As new inmates, the team must find a way to survive and complete the mission. Between vicious prisoners, deadly Ultimate guards, and experimental weapon technology, how can they possibly pull this mission off?
The Ultimates chapter begins! The Firewall agents have tracked Loren Kristol to Xiphos, the home of the Ultimates.Fortunately, they have a way to infiltrate the secure facility by posing a new Ultimate recruits during the annual Olympic festival. Thousands of Ultimates travel to Xiphos to compete and celebrate. During the festivities, the team has a chance to learn what Kristol got from the Ultimates and where he is. Of course, they must remain undercover and that means they must compete in the Olympics. The festival has many games and contests, including highly unorthodox ones, including a deadly tea party.
