Lol Amandel, hear me few days back...  :P

Anyone starting to poke around in the dark yet? Trying to find a connection or reference between 'a man without a face' and 'an old riverbank'? My first association would be Egypt and pharaos (no face?), so maybe Cairo?? Or am I getting ahead of myself already?  :P

"Begin," he said, "by telling me your dreams."

I closed my eyes and begin telling him the story of a priest who had been coming to me in my dreams and giving me pieces of a map to another world

Hi all. Re that excerpt above from Winter's email: The Curious Case of the Cleric Cartographer.  Google says there were a handful of merit. It was interesting to learn that Hipparchus was also a cartographer of note "who attempted to update the world map by gathering new information and implementing them in his maps... However, very few of Hipparchus’ cartographic works exist today." SOURCE: https://geokult.wordpress.com/2011/07/24/the-history-of-mapping-hipparchus/

So, anyone seeing any leads or have ideas about where Winter has landed from her email? Am clueless 'tho I'm ruling out Holland.  ;)
Also, if anyone ever needs to see the full contents of an email just give a shout & someone will post it here. Bye4Now.

New email and website with our first task....

https://www.sylvanastories.com

The image on the site is of Hipparchus:

Hipparchus (c.190-c.120 BC), Ancient Greek astronomer, at the Alexandria Observatory, Egypt. At left is the armillary sphere he invented. Hipparchus is considered one of the greatest astronomers of antiquity. He calculated the length of the year and discovered the precession of the equinoxes. It is thought that the later work of Ptolemy was based on the work done by Hipparchus.

In response to my answer on the first test I have now been added to the list of major arcana  :D
