I'm hopping in, and played the 3 of Cups, but i have not been assigned a major arcana yet.
We shall continue on, and hope that Winter's Emails arent gobbled by the Inbox Goblins.

My musings:

earth -> hexahedron -> root
air -> octahedron -> Heart (4th dimension)
water -> icosahedra -> Sacral
fire -> tetrahedron -> Solar plexus (3rd dimension)

dodecahedron -> ether or universe or spirit -> the 12 constellation of the Zodiac -> 3rd Eye 8th above Chakras

Ernato, that is so impressive. particularly drawing an icosahedra. Hoping Winter provides us with an opportunity to view these.

"I have six friends in six different parts of the world. The first you will go to is in a place separated by mountains named for a character in Greek Mythology"

Was sorta bored and began searching for a location. Just my POV that if Winter isn't headed to Pieria, she should be. It's on my bucket list now: https://travelpassionate.com/things-see-pieria-greece/ Finally. Winter's latest tweet hints at something being "hidden" & that's left me clueless. https://twitter.com/wintersylvana

It could also be Atlas. The Titan was condemned to hold up the sky for eternity... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_(mythology)
According to an ancient Greek myth, the warrior Perseus would have come to this place on one of his journeys. He sought a shelter and found it at Atlas. However, Atlas did not want to help Perseus. In a fit of anger, Perseus showed the head of Medusa to Atlas, turning it into a large pile of stone. This heap of stone is today known as the Atlas Mountains.

Hi there All. My pure guess is that Winter, if not overwhelmed, is at least whelmed  ;D by the sheer amount of player interest in her latest story. Anyway, am leaving a little tweet reply on her accn't hoping to clarify if/how we should be searching for something of interest "hidden" at Sylvana Stories. Hope that helps.

New email:

Assignment One is Complete
Now that we learned about your location,
we will learn about his.

He is the first and last HRE we will study.
Nobody knows when he was born.
Nobody knows where he was born.
The historical and the present locations will soon collide.

Best Wishes,
Winter

So i got a nudge:

A further hint for your efforts:

The eight is simply a quantity.

Saturn is also known as...

My thoughts therefore are that we are looking for an 8 letter word linking these 4 or its hinting at the planets. 

Saturn is also known as  Saturnus  (8 letters) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn_(mythology)

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

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
