Octavian & Teacher Finish Their Work on Replika
Octavian enters Biomedical Sciences Lab building through side entrance, has old magic scanner and sticky door. Teacher meets him, upset that he’s late and says he shouldn’t bother with Kastra. Octavian notes an old computer in the lab cabinets. They work on Replika. At dinner, Teacher opens up about the actuality of alternate realities and says that he believes that Octavian will become a brilliant magician. They continue working until close to sunrise. They get ready to activate Replika. Teacher has the computer, activates it. The world transforms.

Enter the ToVYverse
As they activate Replika, Teacher activates a device (computer suspiciously similar to Reality Tuner).
Steampunk World – Escape Lab
Replika wakes up. They find they are trapped in room. Replika doesn’t know she’s a robot. They find Pressure Point which, when triggered, sets off a Rube Goldberg device that opens the door. Outside door, they explore complex a little, finding a (steam) power generator room and a bedroom off the atrium. Outside is covered in fog. They find a steam-powered longboat, motor at the back, steering and start mechanism at the front. It’s mechanism is binary and they almost die when it is turned on. Octavian touches time magic but can’t recall it. They see a pirate ship as they come to shore, and it seems someone is watching them from it.
NEW CONCEPTS: Pressure Point; Magic fire that is not hot but used for lighting; Gravity Mesh to move objects (unlocks door); Time magic (impossible, but not?)
