Sente Kiteway (all entries)

The Master of the Academy

Sente is Master of the Perplex City Academy. The Cube was stolen from under his nose and he was determined to get it back.

Having traced the Cube as far as Earth, Sente came up with a controversial plan: to enlist our help by turning the hunt into a huge, enthralling puzzle. Was it a brilliant strategy? Or an attempt to hide the truth?

As well as being a stern and mysterious pillar of the community, Sente is also father to Violet and Scarlett Kiteway.

Three Years

19 Feb 07

Kurt's magnum opus, a 4,000-word blog post covering: how he was persuaded to 'save' the Cube; what happened on The Night; an encounter with Caine; doctoring the puzzle cards; getting friends killed; and whether it was all worth it.

The Sum of Good Intentions

9 Feb 07

Kurt goes retrospective, looking back over the past couple of years and realising what's changed. His friends, himself, even the city. But they will all carry on, absorbing the changes, because that is what civilisations do.

Over

1 Feb 07

An epic entry from Violet - in length as well as importance. Not only does she recount 'Operation Bayonet', but she also reveals how she discovered that Caine killed Anna. Turns out that 'Faberling' is not only the name of Caine's new single - it was also Anna's very secret pet name for her husband Fleming. Either Caine and Anna were having an affair, or she told him the name as a final clue to the others, pointing the finger just before she died.

Violet has been going out with a liar and a killer for a year. She's trying to deal with it.

Caine, over-worked and burning the candle at both ends, is starting to worry about Scarlett too. His laid-back veneer is beginning to crack... but at least the gig went well.

Result! The clever Cube Hunters work out where the Third Power's signals have been coming from - and it's something of a surprise.

Relay Race

22 Jan 07

Helena agrees to help, and fills Kurt in on what she knows about the Third Power's communications. It centres around a defunct network called Relaynet, which is laid alongside the city's underground rail lines. Kurt is sure the Cube Hunters on Earth can help to track down where the Third Power's messages are being sent from. Helena offers him (and us) access to her case notes.

Decisions

14 Oct 06

The Cube Hunters help to piece together the information hidden in the 'scrambled' files. Looks like there have been some fairly unsavoury experiments taking place at Viendenbourg - including the one that zapped Major Jake Maine over to Lancewood - and Sente authorised them all.

Now Scarlett and Violet have to decide what to do with this newfound intelligence. Who can they tell?

6 Oct 06

Violet and Scarlett set off for Viendenbourg, to find out what's been going on. There are many questions to be answered: who was Major Jake Maine? Who was experimenting on him, and why? What (if anything) does it have to do with the Cube?

With luck, this week should make things a little clearer.

Kurt works out that the squiggly lines correspond to the landscape of the Lancewood Archipelago - a rather remote set of islands off the coast. So Scarlett and Violet book passage on the next chater boat out there. They'll need to get some directions from the Reconstructionists, though, who know the islands best.

It turns out that staying with Uncle Sanjean isn't so bad after all - especially with Aunt Annaliese intervening and letting Scarlett stay out late.

Also, Scarlett meets a guy from the electrical authority called Emory, who tells her that various safety systems had been physically disabled before the blackout, meaning that it was all planned well in advance. Interesting...

The San Francisco Connection

12 Aug 06

The largest Perplex City event on Earth... and perhaps the most nerve-wracking. What was supposed to be a celebration turned into a matter of extreme urgency, when the data link to Perplex City was lost. It was sabotage, apparently carried out by the Third Power. An emergency site was erected by Mind Candy, explaining the situation.

Connecting the new link in San Francisco became a much more important (and much tougher) proposition. Without the Academy on hand to help, the Cube Hunters were left to solve hundreds of online and offline clues to re-establish communications.

(Check out the Cube Hunters' wiki for a summary and links to the audio.)

Looks like they're starting to get their act together. Let's hope Caine knows what he's in for.

Violet faces the music and finally talks to her dad about why she needed that ferrogramatograph. Sente is enigmatic as ever, hinting that he knows more than he's saying. Maybe. Possibly.

It sounds like the mines have been swept clean, so there's no likelihood of Miranda's death becoming a legal issue, but Sente is still keen for both his daughters to stay away from dangerous areas and reckless people. Like a good girl, Violet promises to behave herself. Maybe. Possibly.

Kurt sorts through his mail and finds one or two intesresting things. For instance, he urges everyone to check out part two of Oistin Meade's psychology survey - this time, it's a conceptual art challenge.

(Kurt doesn't have any idea about what Von submitted in the personality test, by the way.)

There's a brief nod of respect towards the Thirteenth Labour guys, then a huge swerve away from personal relationship issues. Kurt, Kurt, Kurt... if anybody needs a psychology test, it's you...

The bad news is that Viendenbourg security saw straight through Scarlett's false identity. The good news is that they think she and Allain have been sent by Sente to test their security systems. Scarlett and Allain are offered an escort to the nearest town, which they gladly accept - but that doesn't explain what Scarlett's dad has to do with Viendenbourg. At least Allain's memory is returning.
