I'll give Forge and Lady Z a chance to post, before presenting the next piece of the puzzle.  8)

Emend can pick any of them he wants. The problem is, he does not know which one needs. Does he have some way to sense Faith's resonance?

Cant he just use the sympathetic connection between Saint and Faith to get her Resonance? Or is that not a thing?

The sympathic connection is completely unique to each person and can't be shared (except with the appropriate spell).

The Saint has the strongest connection to Faith, due to raising her. UsdiYona is also close, because she lived and played with her for a while - not to mention being able to 'smell her spirit scent'.

The rest of the disciples know who Faith is and have a weaker sympathic connection - which is not strong enough to be of any use in the current situation.

Where was it? Do you think we could portal to him? Or that you could bring him into here?"

Interesting thought. What would happen if one stepped through a portal without their physical body waiting on the other side?  ;D

Most likely, the portal would fail, as it would be trying to cross a dimensional barrier - unless the object was to portal into the guy's notebook (which would probably work). I gave a certain level of dramatic license with Beat's Scry - as that too would have been crossing a dimensional barrier - same as when the Saint had tried to Scry out UsdiYona at the beginning of the adventure from the other way around.

The Judge could be brought in, yes, but it would take a ritual like what Morrow Wind used to get the disciples in.

"I have no way of identifying which one of these lead to faith, but you should be able to, Saint," Emend says, casting Eyes of the Matrix on him.

UsdiYona is pointing right at it lol!  :D

Saint nods his gratitude to Emend.

"You were right Usdi, they passed through here. Beats, can you follow this connection?"

Because Beats has both Forces and Space, yes. He could scry out the other end, like he did the Judge's location.

Emend could do the same, if his Space was higher - but he is not currently skilled enough to get across the dimentional barriers.

Just to clarify, anyone with eyes of the matrix can see all connections. Anyone can travel through one by standing on it and willing oneself through it (even without being able to see it).

I thought Beats wanted to scry the other end, but the last post sounds like he just wants to go through.

Please let me know which, so I can update.

Don't think it could hurt to scry it first and see if a trap awaits us.

Normally, the collective dreaming would be, see info on astral space, but as this is an artificial reality and the mind of a demon, things are much different.

Spirits, other than the one currently merged with the internet here will be almost unheard of. Fortunately, his avatars are treated as spirits though.

Cool.

Could Robor force the cube open with his control over spirit roads?

Sort of a Half Update there - allowing for Emend and UsdiYona's reactions, before proceeding further.  :)

"Are we not all capitalists at heart?" the Prince replied to Robor (apparently unfazed by the command).

Then observing Beats scrutinizing the ice data, he added - "See, there? That man seeks to undermine the system for his own gain, rather than pay a fair price for the service offered."

With his eyes of the Matrix, Beats found that he could indeed influence the flow of data to a small degree, but felt that his overall skill with forces was a bit lacking for the task at hand. If only he could control the data flow, rather than simply influence it...

He could tell with space however, that the currently blocked connection led off to a point somewhere in Dallas Texas.

The Saint meanwhile, changed his form to that of a giant snake. He was still trapped fast however, and quickly realized that the cold had an even more adverse effect on him, while in a cold-blooded skin.

Changing back, he then attempted to unravel the Prince's lifeform directly, but the effort was thwarted by the Prince's seemingly endless ability to resist the disciples' magic.

Added the above to Beat's results post (as I failed to account for his Space on the first draft).
