How's that for electoral positioning?  I wouldn't be so confident that people wouldn't vote for literally satan if I were you Xander.

Synopsis:  

Aging telepath Evil Overlord Xander has traded his youthful dream of joining the US military and using his superpowers to benefit humanity for over-the-hill cynicism, self-imposed exile on his private zoo-for-crazy-people Eynhallow Island, and a serious case of May-December midlife crisis.  And technically it's only kidnapping if she tries to leave.  or the fun version

Satan... Don't some people on the island consider that that's already Xander, and that he's just pretending to be taken down so people won't know he's still leading? I'm sure there are poiltical opinion that say that ^^;

I'm sure there are.  Probably a whole guild dedicated to the idea, with whatever costume they've gotten approved to wear.  Kinda extreme though, Xander's face may look villainous, and he might behave like he's arrogant and doesn't care, but he's the guy leading the work crews to fix burst pipes and negotiating the island's supply shipments with Washington DC.  Yet I'm sure your right and it would merit the 'this guy is literally satan' moniker from some of the people he helps.  You can't win Xander.

I know what lines are, but I have never heard of 'deeper lines'.  Do you mean 'darker'?  Like, 'lines that are the color black'.  I don't understand what you mean by the word 'deeper'.

I think if I had a local paper called The Eynhallow Double Standard, I'd probably pick it up from time to time.  As it is, in the Bay Area all we have is the Murky News.  Headline today 'urban village sprouts in santa clara'.  Love the passive voice: these things just happen folks.  Love the plant-thropomorficization of what turns out to be an apartment complex. Love the not-so-subtle diss at noted artsy-fartsy community santa clara.  Best of all, the oxymoron 'urban village'.  It must take effort enormous effort to be such an airhead reporter.  'Santa Clara Planning Commission Approves Construction Project' was too hard-boiled, eh?

Amazing as always! The expressions are on point Clap 
Does 'Ciq verde' stand for something? 
And is Kore's surname being 'emeralds' significant?

chateaugrief Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2018  Professional Digital Artist
Yes it indeed does but I'd suspect that it's rather obscure...  As far as surname...yes it's significant, and it contradicts some previously revealed info.  I am so confusing!  But I absolutely can't reveal anything here yet.

Hm - "verde" like "green" like "emerald" like "smaragdos"? (I actually didn't even realize that Smaragdos might be a covert hint, as the jewel is called the same in my native language and I took it as open hint ^^)

And I am thinking about jotting down all the hints that can be found in the plot so far and drawing up some kind of map to keep track of things ...

yes, yes, double yes, and there's an enormous huge piece of data coming on Wednesday that feeds right into deciphering -- and there is an actual code (I would be highly surprised if anyone deciphers it)-- but even if the actual code remains cryptic, there are more elements that should become clear over time: green is not a neutral color in old history, there are thousands of years of ciphers and codes lying underneath and more legends and lore than you can shake a stick at -- but if you want to take a crack at it, Isaac Newton's writings are a great place to start.

My eldest nephew was born in December, and he loves Christmas. Probably because when he was a kid, he made out like a freaking bandit with grandparents giving him BOTH birthday and Christmas presents. Wink/Razz
