Event: Recharge?; End

It isn't until late on Friday evening when things seem to return, more or less, to normal. The power returns, things are fairly stable, and the Tower finally begins its repair work, covering up with mechanical efficiency the exposed wiring of the Tower's spine. Riki comes on over the intercoms as the repair work is being completed.

"Looks like things're getting back to normal, more or less. Thanks for the help. Everyone who went downstairs to help out will be back in the morning."

As for those Riki is speaking of, following the pull will lead them to a mirror, though the mirror won't be visible until they approach it. They will feel compelled to touch the mirror--when they do, they will, in an instant, see every possible good and bad outcome they may face in their original universe. They'll see themselves triumph and killed horribly in an instant, see their friends lauded and enslaved, see their worlds exactly as they wish them and in ruins. It's enough to drive someone insane--but the experience only lasts an instant, as they're pulled through the mirror. The light emanating from the one who passed through the mirror has nearly gone out entirely--but they'll be able to sense that with time the light will recover, and no permanent damage has been done (not counting any trauma from the explosion of possibilities, anyway). The memory of the various branches their worlds could take is dull and vague; the emotional strain remains, and there are snatches of clarity, but overall things are too vague to cause any sanity loss.

Once everyone passes through the mirror, they will all black out and awaken in the morning in their beds in the Tower.

Everyone who was hooked up into the machine will experience the following effects for all of February:

-All superhuman abilities are unreliable; they're often completely nullified, but sometimes they go off without warning.
-General exhaustion, worst during the beginning of the month and slowly improving as the month goes on.
-Characters will find themselves blinking in and out of reality at random; when they blink out of reality, they return to the void they slept in for as little as a few seconds and as long as several hours.
