Greetings True Believers!
After regrouping, our heroes devised quick plan to get in and track down the rest of the journals in the castle. Cypher knew where to start looking.
But there was the matter of what AIM scanned. AIM technology is extremely advanced … and cryptic … but nothing our heroes couldn’t handle. It was a painting on top of another painting!
Splitting up, one group went for the journals while another went to examine the painting.
It was as if the painting had been waiting for them. The outer image, oil and paint turned to sand! It rolled away like water, revealing the true painting underneath! It was a group of men standing next to one Heinrich Himmler, the leader of the Society of Thule in the 1940s! Elektra grabbed a quick phone picture and the sand recovered the hidden painting.
As for the other journals, they were where Cypher remembered. But in all the searching, there was more! Someone had inked hard to see germanic runes, but even more interesting was a hologrpahic message in Egyptian to ‘seek the Pharoah of Macedon’ so they can find ‘the path’.
The Pharoah of Macedon was Alexander the Great, but what is the path? And most important, where did almost the entire team vanish to when they ‘de-rezzed’ into an AIM Cybercommando disk?
Looks like X might not mark the spot on this treasure hunt, True Believers, but Egyptian heiroglyphs might!
If they can escape the Hammer Empire!
This is Not Stan Lee saying … EXCELSIOR!
