I asked Winter ceraintly if the “location” could be a map, ‘cause its readable in any language. She gave me this response:

Possibly, although a map is not really a "language." But you are on the right track. Remember L ocation in any L anguage ;)

LOL Emato. Only a genuine archaeophile would harbor that regret. Maybe we're not yet done with some Sumerian clay tablets?

Re Lesson 1:

I think I missed a chance to look further into Gilgamesh.  My card places akey at Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh.  Oh well.

Winter sent me a kind email in reply to some ideas I held (past tense & mostly circular logic) re Lesson Two. Just hoping it helps anyone.

Dearest Amandel,

Your hard work is always to be commended. I think it is best to sometimes follow that old adage: begin at the beginning. I don't think people have the made the connection yet as to why some people received a clue for Assignment #1 and some didn't.

Hint: Location in any language.

"Move carefully" means looking for landmines, but also making sure you don't miss monuments.

You will prevail, as the next test showcases your strengths.

Ahaha...reckon Winter was teasing me b/c my tarot card is Strength. Also, hoping she means Lesson 3 as I'm clueless atm re Lesson 2.

Ad Locum (context): https://www.sylvanastories.com/ad-locum.html

Hi All. Is this the action to take for Lesson Two? Am unsure 'tho an easy way to define ad locum is "the source cited is the same as one previously cited". Am guessing "the movement" is clockwise from left bottom. (yup, obvious me)

Been looking at that.  Also another way for Ad Locum -> Latin -> To the place.

EDIT: Winter's email (posted below on this page) sort of hints to start at "Location in any language". Maybe that stands for Google?

I received another e-mail from Winter:

Dearest Friends,

An update of sorts, if you will indulge me.
Patience in all things; the story will be told.
The puzzle is not like a blossom opening,
making itself apparent to all.
Rather it like a growing season,
seeds sown and watered and bathed in sunlight,
to grow within
to be harvested in the future
when the need is greater.

Melissa

Our story now merges with Melissa's story, and her story will become a story within a story. You can see why I implore you to be patient. We are all much closer now to being on the same page.

If you'll remember from my last letter, Melissa was the escort that H assignment to me for safety reasons.

I met Melissa at the airport and she was not what I expected, which will become important later. All you need to know now is that she was dressed like a school girl and carried a backpack which she would not be parted with. Nor would she divulge to contents of said backpack.

As she escorted me around the airport I was amazed at how fluent she was in multiple languages and local dialects, including English. She seemed much older and more confident than her young face and body revealed. Frankly, her demeanor was like someone from the armed forces, but she denied such a connection.

Once we were safely on the plane she told me of growing up in a very primitive and rural part of the country, where she longed to escape the drudgery of farm work and go to the city. Eventually, her wish came true when she was sold to a man who lived in the city.

"He was a terrible person," she said, opening a can of diet Coke that she begged from the flight attendant.

"How did you get away from him?" I asked.

She sipped her Coke and smiled. "I killed him."

More soon.

All my best,
Winter

In our quest of a location, i tried combining stuff. Winter said on Twitter that the story began 6,000 years ago. And in her first email she's referring to a city on a old riverbank. Stumbled on the wikipage of Mesopotamia... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mesopotamia.

Founded 6,000 years ago and they were very fond of astrology and mythology. Im not 100% confinced yet, but maybe something to keep in mind
