Thanks. Spoiler: CS2 onwards I'm still not clear on the Phantasmal part. I thought Crossbell's role was just to fill Erebonia with pleroma flowers after the annexation to set up for the Great Twilight. Was there more to it? For that matter, why did the Hexen Clan have a spell for summoning the Infernal Castle? Separately, do we know anything about where cryptids come from, or why, or why it's an Erebonia-only phenomenon until the annexation (except for KeA summoning some inside the Azure Tree)? Edit: extra question. What do we know about Rean's ogre power and its origins? We know he's "mixed" due to Osborne's heart being transplanted by Ishmelga, but neither Osborne nor Ishmelga ever display anything remotely like it.
