A nutcase having hallucinations.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
A nutcase having hallucinations.
The chance meeting, the cup of coffee... I'm getting a sense of deja vu here. Though it's really more of a remake: the same plot, but different actors. Then again, I could be imagining things.
This story is like a hulking shape hidden in a deep soup of fog. There's a vague outline visible and every now and then, a sudden clearing reveals a few details, but there's not yet enough to piece everything together into a coherent whole - although there are tantalizing hints and suggestions.
Mme Eryx continues her meteoric rise from obscurity to power. Not a good thing, not at all.
"Only the penitent man will pass... Only the penitent man will pass..." Channeling Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade again? I see now where Pierre gets the inspiration for his stories - what was it again, 'Ohio Smith'?...It is said that the Halls are guarded by an ancient, enlightened race of immortals, and only grant entrance to those who can pass three deadly trials
Haiti, how did they actually come to dominate the Caribbean?

So far, Anney's behavior does not show real adverse effects for Marissa - I concede that when you said 'wait till you see what happens next', it doesn't require that 'next' be the next update.
At least the Criminal is gone. Or has he merely relocated to another host? Anyway, the Criminal is bad, so I'm glad he's gone. Although he has a beef with Circe, who's also bad, so maybe bad vs. bad is good? I don't expect so.
And then there's the mysterious Selena Eryx, who is up to no good. The reference to Luna in the parsol.hti story, who could be another lunar-related character and therefore probably no good news. And then there's Mme Tzarsou, who is merely crazy. And then there is one or more entities (to wit, the finger-wagging appartition scolding Anney and the earlier Voodoo lady in Haiti who was visited by the old man) who may also not be well-disposed towards mankind.
Things sure don't look promising, which such a lineup of baddies baying for blood.
By the way, is Pierre now on Navissa island? Or are there other deserted islands in this universe?
So far, so sensible. I'm liking Anney more and more. Of course, I like her in a 'Thank goodness she's not my last, best hope of salvation' kind of way.
Her arguments continue to make sense and it was fun to see her take on (and beat, to some extent) Miss Charlotte. Seems the gods (or supernatural beings), even the goody-two-shoes, aren't so perfect themselves.
The golden age of piracy is right here!
It's called 'downloading'.
No comment.Molly couldn't help but hope that the author would go back to the stuff with witches and pirates with the next update, as they tended to be at least semi-legible.
thanks mate, for the chuckles... With your crazy Droste-effect and abrupt
Impressive job mocking up that grid crawler. I see they have Yahoo in your alternate universe... Oh, I also misread the address that's stuck between the 'Back' button and that 'AVG' thingy on the left top hand of the screen. I read a non-existent 't' between the 'giant' and 'itp'... Shows my level of sophistication, eh?
The warning of headaches came too late.
Rum rum rum.
Circe is a vegan?
Although a bit insane also.
Nice.Snakes...why'd it have to be snakes?
