And with this, another chapter comes to an end!

Within Cryptida, the wealthy antiques collector Freder Roseland last appeared way back here, but much more recently he also appeared in Jay042's Return to Atlantis story and had a tiny cameo in Playground.

Roseland is the owner of two very distinctive buildings in Gernsbeck: The one with the shiny blue glass facade, in which he likes to show off his treasures to the public, and the grey conical one with the helipads, in which he stores everything that he currently doesn't exhibit. This building is highly guarded, and this is where he and Tessa are in the last panel.

The barrels contain the dragon blood, and the crates contain the Treasure of the Nibelungs (as a little homage to Raiders of the Lost Ark).

be very careful about concentrating too many of your resources, even behind the walls of a fortress

because that which can be located can be targeted
and that which can be targeted can be hit
and that which can be hit

can be destroyed

sic semper tyrannis

This aspect considered, it was a smart move by Starry Wisdom to persuade a third party to store their stuff for them - because in an event of such an attack, their treasures would be destroyed, sure - but not their infrastructure...

That building looks like it was designed by the Daleks

Haha! :-D

(Just imagine Roseland attaching a giant plunger to the building...)
