Shonin Shard Recap

31 shards traveled 390,974 km over 23 days leaving a trail of burnt VRLAs and sleepless agents. Over the past week, we covered many stories and recaps of the shard’s journeys collecting 36 reports.

The most popular shard is #24 which started with a long hard battle in Perth before being shipped to Canada by the Resistance, then stolen by the Enlightened and sent to Rotterdam where it was stolen again by the Resistance and sent to Faroe Island where it was laid to rest

The second most popular shard, #20 aka Meercat spawned in Melbourne and was swiftly sent to the Zoo where it attended a Village People concert before the Resistance took it to New Zealand then to the US where it was so fiercely fought over in Salt Lake City for days on end that it didn’t move any further.

Shard #18, aka Toddles, began in Miami where the Enlightened sent it to the Dominican Republic followed by the Resistance sending it back, up east coast of the US all the way to the target.

And who could forget the Deep Fried Chicken Shard?! Shard #11 spent half its life in Japan and some of that time in front of ONINO KARAAGE where a lot of agents enjoyed some decent KARAAGE!
