As a player, this main hall is sadly too clean and the 'inscription' too complex.

Sadly, I don't believe that going to ultraviolet light will reveal anything like: remnants of paint, blood, etcetera.

The 'alphabet' (glyphs, symbols, whatever) seems to defy logic. Extremely complex symbols? When, in our world, we look at numbers, one was made with one angle, w was made with 2 angles, 3... etcetera. And if the letters are tied to sounds (like phonics of the Phoenician alphabet), how many different sounds did the ancient builders have in their language?

By the description, the 'text' is made of 'words' not longer than four characters.

Stylized 'hieroglyphics'?

Perhaps more clues will present themselves?

I will have to be on the lookout. :)

You're only in the entry room. There's still an entire structure to explore. Don't expect literally the first thing you see to be an important, mystery-solving clue. If it was that easy, it would have been solved three decades ago.

@ World Capitalist: Hey, could you try being more detailed and specific? That is a remarkably lazy post, and there's no way I can respond to it.

Norv, Ry and everyone else, since we've already got results from the last bout of posting, I think it'd be better if we just assumed that Samantha agreed with HUgh's proposal right before walking into the room.

I agree.

Supposedly, a lot of us have agreed that we're forming a study group.

I wrote Tripetta's last post imagining that Anastasia would come, too, but in such a way that she had the freedom to change her mind. Plus, there's always editing. BTW, 12 Isles told me that they have a cold, so maybe won't post soon.

Hey Norv, minor thing I noticed in your last post, you mixed up Samantha and Tripetta while mentioning that the latter was interested in the mural.

To everyone, I fudged the order of events a little bit, hope that works of everyone (I can always edit otherwise).

So I did, thanks for the catch. Post looks fine to me.

For really, I think that the poorest he that is in England hath a life to live as the greatest he. And therefore truly, Sir, I think it's clear that every man that is to live under a Government ought first by his own consent to put himself under that Government. And I do think that the poorest man in England is not at all bound in a strict sense to that Government that he hath not had a voice to put himself under.

No problem, it makes sense that she'd try to investigate, since she's never experienced such enchantments.

Sorry for the absence guys, I created a character for a separate RP that I liked so much I ended up starting a whole story for them of my own writing. Kinda got distracted. I promise to try and be more active here, I don want to be a part of this.

Anyways, I hope I haven't missed much.

Olthar, your posts state that Samantha and Hugh both explored the rooms to the right, but also that Hugh's room was opposite Samantha's. Which is it? Asking so I can keep track of what rooms have been explored.

I checked my post thinking I had messed up, but I guess you misread. I did say that Hugh went to the left room. So, the way it is now, there are eleven rooms in this hallway. Before the turn, there are three on the left and two on the right. Hugh explored the first room on the left, and Samantha explored the first room on the right. After the turn, there are three more rooms on each side.

Oh, no, I'm just stupid. I read a different response thinking it was Hugh's :P.

Thanks anyways. I'll have a post up soon-ish.

So, that post was longer, but still just as vague. You can't just say that you're exploring things and expect that to be enough. What, specifically, are you looking at?

Quite some stuff is described already if you read what everyone else has written (including Olthar) in the IC thread.

You should make some to time so you can make that effort. Best to not post and wait so you have time to digest everything. You also don't really *need* to know everything - just what your character should know.
