Whoops, probably should have read those a little more carefully. Well I think the info I gave about Greek myth may still come in useful in the future as more Greek connections come up. It took me a while to figure out why the stories never seemed to match up exactly, so I was hoping I could help others get past that confusion a little more quickly.

And about the accounts, I think the first one in which Atlas is a Titan is from Hesiod's Theogony and the second one is from Plato's works. Given the bust on Plato on the website I'd say that the latter may be the one that's more pertainent to Ny Takma. But then I imagine it wouldn't be all that unconventional for any refrences to Greek myth to draw from several different accounts, even if the accounts are from larger traditions that contradict in places. I figured I'd throw it out there.

I'm itching for new puzzles so much, I just can't manage to pull myself away from the boards. I figured since I'm checking for new posts every ten seconds I minus well post something that may be somewhat useful.

EDIT: Hmm... after reading Caterpillar's new post I guess Yshk has sort of made my point about which tradition is more valid sort of a moot point.

Question: What significance does Hank's daughter hold for the Lanti?


From YshkLanti:
Quote:
This is a very good question, though I must admit I expected you to ask me to translate some Lanti for you or even who I am. I can answer this question.

She is not of Hankís blood, her significance lies in what she can do for us rather than what she can do for the Lanti.

I hope this answer is to your liking, and yes I am indeed here on Earth


My Reply:
Quote:
No, actually I'm finding the trickling of Lanti translations quite interesting. It's sort of like a Christmas present wrapped in layers and layers of wrapping paper ; )

The answer, although not to my liking, I suppose will have to do; as you stated upfront you weren't entirely sure you could be forthcoming.

I did not ask what Hank's daughter could do for the Lanti, I asked what significance she held for them. And even if the real significance lies with us, I can deduce by all that has thus transpired, that she still must hold a significance for the Lanti.

So you dodged it quite eloquently....

Although you did answer my next question which was "Who are you?".....

You are one of us.....albeit an odd bugger who is fluent in an Antediluvian language.

And I already knew she was a foundling.....so nothing new there ; )


From YshkLanti:
Quote:
It is quite logical that a method to organize this trickling of information can be quite useful.

Small streams trickle into larger rivers eventually collecting in the many oceans of the world.


My Reply:
Quote:
By the way, you say "to answer this second side of the puzzle"....did we miss the first side?


From YshkLanti:
Quote:
Not everyone missed the first side, but many have misunderstood it.

An Explanation

I was not able to ask a question due to an unexpected trip to the ER. (Everything turned out fine.) I will be emailing yshklanti to explain. I don't expect to get my "reward", but at least he will know that I wasn't ignoring him. I will post his response.

I guess that would rule out that the larimar stone is stegged? (although stegdetect gives posirtive even at low sensitivity values)

Caterpillar's Question

I think perhaps, that your question was answered, albeit not explicitly. The girl is significant to the Lanti because the Lanti wishes to keep the girl from doing whatever it is that she can do for us. At least, thats what I took from it.

I have a retarded n00b question: do we all need to e-mail lanti the answers to the puzzles as they come up to keep playing/getting clues?

Got an e-mail earlier from Lanti, after I'd asked about the language:
Quote:
They are Lanti an old language forgotten by time, the Lanti were good men until they became greedy and stole what did not belong to them. This action has caused much pain and suffering, the rue I have mentioned.


Seems just to confirm what we already knew about atlantis, but, for completeness' sake...

Just had a brief exchange with YL. Hopefully, there'll be more, but for now basically I wrote asking for clarification on the text from understanding.jpg (i.e. for correct spelling). I also asked what we should call him, and he wrote back:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
You can call me friend for now

Though the messages are channeled through me I can not confirm much only
that I believe linguala does not mean language. I have before warned of
assumptions. Where is this message from?


So we can call him "friend", and Lanti words may not mean what they sound like. I had asked him if I could refer to the language as "Linguala di Lanti", so since he didn't deny it, perhaps di = of as we have been assuming.

I emailed yshk asking to confirm our latest transcribing efforts and got this in return:

Spoiler (Rollover to View):
I apologize, but I do not know where this is from. I am beginning to fear
for him.

Blood
Blood
everywhere!


Sounds somewhat alarming, but since "blood" and "everywhere" both appear on /curiosity, that might be a clue to start looking at it again.

Also, since yshk seems unwilling or unable to help us with the language, perhaps our tactic now should be to wait for Bryan to unveil more translations to us, and then make guesses at transcribing based on the greater knowledge of words we know.

I wrote yshk back asking about whose blood it is since he sometimes will go back and forth pretty rapidly, but nothing else so far.

Email conversation with yshk:

Quote:
From: Me
To: YshkLanti

What happened to Bryan?

---------------------------------

From: YshkLanti
To: Me

Trapped
Drowned
Lonely


So it seems Bryan needs our help. Maybe Yshk has a crystal ball or something.

...how's he sending Hank translations if he's drowned? Razz

Maybe it's a recent development.
Or maybe Bryan's the one the Lucia's Coast poem talks about. In fact, looking at the poem, "Trapped" "drowned" and "lonely" all show up in there.
