Nodes Contention

12.1.1.3 Nodes Contention

A Nodes Contention is one of the possible contention types for a Major Focus. The following message indicates an Onslaught Contention is beginning:
There is a sharp, rending sound as the air itself splits. A pillar of ylem surges upward, followed closely by two others, venting their otherworldly energy with cacophonous abandon. The ylem mists roil and thicken, and jagged bolts of energy stab through, grounding wherever they meet solid obstacles.

During this contention, three lesser foci will spawn in three different rooms in the Major Focus's area. These foci are unstable, and their contained ylem will leak away unless someone is actively extracting from them.

This contention will end after all three of the lesser foci have collapsed.
