A Quick recap of everyone's starting locations….
Adira and Aine are in Arden overlooking the forces of Vecna cleaning up the battlefield where the Horseman was defeated.
Cedric is in Begma preparing for the defense of the city against the forces of darkness — Veronica is in Qin doing much the same.
Portia traveled to Begma (you believe) but has not been seen or heard from since she left
Zane is leading a force of Solars to attack the rear of the force assaulting Begma.
Runa is at sea with her fleet at the last known location of Gerard. She is preparing to hunt ghost ships.
Reed, Usil/Jack, and Callista along with Johann and his gang are about to re-enter Kartakass searching for Davin.
Karakos and Artemis are at a secret (ok, I imagine everyone knows where they are) location preparing for their (not so) secret mission.
Nigel is travelling alone and has been uncharacteristically snippy.
Keyje was last seen on Earth — not that anyone expects him to participate
And Bleys… well, he is either searching for Benedict or traveling with Reed in his Johann disguise — or both (and doesn't that thought kind of ruin Reed's day!).
