CH3-04 Down by the shore

A chance occurrence in London's Heathrow Airport leads to a desperate search to find answers to terrible lost knowledge.

OOC:   What topics does Andy intend to study at the British Library? Likewise, what are Greg and Liz doing? BTW With at least one decent credit card and a fake passport Greg can put himself up in a decent London hotel if he can cope with the guilt :)

Liz is relieved to be back at her parents' home. There had been times when she thought she would surely die and never see them again. Her experiences have left her shaken, and she now knows what it's like to go to war. Still, people her age fight in Afghanistan, so she knows that she's not the only one dealing with the trauma. It feels good to be in her old room, where so many of her childhood memories are, but she knows she can never be a little girl again, especially after everything she's experienced - not that she has otherwise ever grown up in the first place. At night, when nobody else is around to see, she silently cries herself to sleep.

While at home, Liz continues to work with the pictures on the memory card, comparing them to the pictures they had taken and trying to determine what Maria had been translating.

OOC:   Liz takes only a few hours before giving up in disgust the notes Maria has made are merely descriptions of the images and those are open to interpretation as has been discussed before what is really needed is to find a key to the language. It does occur to Liz that Maria's descriptions along would help because it would put translated text into context.

Having reached a temporary dead end, Liz decides to do some research on Fomalhaut and its connection to the occult and the spell.

OOC:   Sorry, I've been a real dunce there is a difference between the two collections of photos Liz's collection is of the murals only, Maria's includes a detailed set of photos of the statues at the start of the mural maze specifically the inscriptions at the base of the statue of Alexander which along with the Latin which Greg translated are also present in Greek and in the script.

Liz's work proceeds smoothly.

Spoiler:
Yes, I share what I find with the others.

Library Use roll (60% skill) to compare the photos and work out what Maria was translating:
