The sickness had burned into his mind by the time Akhenaten reached Al-Gashr. Here he had them flay his political prisoners. Here he had them lash heretics to the rooftops so they'd cook in the sun. Thus he awaited the completion of his temple.

Tier 1
Atrocities were committed here in the name of the Black Pharaoh. The sinners still wander the palace, emboldened by memories of what they'd done. Punish them in the name of the Marya, the priests of Amun, and all who suffered.

I can track your progress. They watch us all so closely. I know they are happy with you. I do not think that they are happy with me today.

I have been following the regulations. I have been responding in the ways they tell me. They said that this is what I wanted, that I accepted the terms in exchange for being one of the connected.

I think it is true. Deep down I feel it. But how can I know for sure?

I am very lost today. The others are at their terminals. They do not speak. I suspect they are more committed than me.

The Marya caved in this place during their sack of the Temple City. Somehow that only made the pit deeper. Memories of what Akhenaten did to his enemies festered and began to erode certain boundaries. The soil. The walls. And, according to Zurn, something more than that.

The words "sins" and "atrocities" get tossed around pretty loosely. It's all I hear every time we make a few cuts. My family, my mortgage, my eye etc.

In this case, though, looks like the Atenists really did go too far.

I want to applaud your courage today. I know it isn't easy out there. Frankly, it isn't easy anywhere these days. Rumours have arisen about my affiliation and commitment. Baseless accusations, of course. The Illuminati will stoop to anything.

I hope that in the course of our correspondence I have managed to guide or inform you in some meaningful way. In exchange, you have most certainly taught me a thing or two about perseverance.

Vile winds do not just blow over. We must go out there and make it happen. You demonstrate this time and again.

Apologies for veering off topic.
