REPEATABLE (Recommended Level 41)
Near the desiccating corpse of an Orochi explorer, a section of an ancient tablet protrudes from the sand. Like the Sentinel statues, the tablet is made of a cleaner, newer stone than the blackened bricks of the Temple City.
Tier 1
Something about the stone is different from the bleak horrors of the Temple City. Find out what the Orochi agent made of it.
  • Examine the tablet
  • Examine the Orochi agent's log
Tier 2
According to the Orochi log, the tablet is part of a sequence detailing the work of the Sentinel's architect. The trail should continue across further tablets, if they have survived the devastation.
  • Find and translate the second tablet
  • Find and translate the third tablet
  • Find and translate the fourth tablet
Tier 3
This is the final section of the tablet inscription. Whether they gave up or were interrupted by the re-emergence of the Aten, this is as far as the Orochi patrols came in unravelling the builder's epitaph.
  • Find the bridge between worlds
  • Follow the builder's spirit

Walkthrough

There are 3 tiers to this mission.

You need to read the translation from tablet 2
Clue 2

The Egypt equation is becoming ever more unstable and sublime. All the data you send confirms its harrowing beauty.

Rats in Oran + plague ratios = Camus & 7 sins / seven Sentinels - Aten(he = "b" squared) over Solomon system (darkness divided) to the power of Akhenaten (Ankhenaton (no oder in the nicht night)) sour times Waltari equals Amarna (ex why)

The dark god rises. The final plague is coming. It is a great time to be alive.

You have so much of my divided attention right now. I've got this tingling feeling that things are going sideways out there.

I'm doing my best to understand why we aren't in full control of the valley: it's hot, hectic. Whatever. That's pretty much what Alexander kept saying, but he still powered through like a champ.

"The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God" (Is. 40:3).

Ancient words can be a terror when misread. You are putting in a dazzling effort out there. Absolutely herculean. Unfortunately it is doing little to quiet the voice at the heart of the Atenist uprising.

They are paving their crooked highway and we must soldier on.
