I know that Pembrose's text is actually just the font Wingdings 3, and figured out what he said myself a while ago but I don't remember what it was, nor did I bother writing it down.

PEMBROSE: Prince? There are no princes here. No princes at all. I am not a prince, but in fact a professor. You can call me Professor Pembrose, or just Pembrose if you wish.

Wondering how I solved it? Me too. Here's a quick explanation:

[Image: vnkyj.jpg]

That solitary letter tells us that that symbol is either I or A. I tried A first:

The most common symbol in the text was the slanted-upwards right-pointing arrow. I assumed that was E:

That AΔE in the first line tells me that Δ is R, so:

Fill in the blanks:

Now let's take a look at this part:

The only grammatically correct two-letter word following "There are" is "no". So:

Now take a look at this word:

Looks awfully like PROFESSOR, doesn't it?

Now HOLD UP and look at THIS word:

[Image: jcjsg.jpg]

Looks like our friend Pembrose's name, hmm?

At this point, it's pretty obvious that downward pointing arrow is I, and that he's saying "PRINCE".

The rest is a cakewalk.

TL;DR Cryptology is basically guessing letters and crossing your fingers. ;]

EDIT: or... yeah... there could just be a font... yeah.........

In my defense, I don't actually have the font windings 3 on my computer.

I also deciphered this panel.

[Image: 0chwpiw.gif]

This time, I used the Wingdings 3 font. It reads:

"Just please don't just stare at me and refuse to greet me like some people do. I don't quite like that at all, not a bit. But you didn't ask about that did you? No, no. You asked about my color. I am the color that I am because the color that I am is my favorite color! I got to pick, you see. It was such fun."

So, now we know. Also, I'm getting alarmingly good at reading Wingdings 3.

I think I've mentioned it before, but I feel like repeating it: There seems to be a similarity between the mirage and a couple of time traveling characters we've met.

Macciu fits better than nikki, but it's curious that we have a time traveling cat as well.

Maybe it came up when the update was airing and I missed it, but, you know who was a first gen of flesh and blood? Somnus.


Edit:
Hermes' cosmosdex Wrote:Godheads of Hermes tend to be extremely excitable and jumpy. Their speed is automatically brought to 10, they gain the [Space Ripper] trait, and are able to enter the underworld without any issues or drawback, they may not fully understand what is going on though. Most of Hermes’ godheads can be described as fairly innocent beings that take joy in everything, including horrible events. They can prance though horrible war fields without a care in the world.

I wonder if this oddyseus looking Tourist was actually a hermes consort.

I wonder, what if Nicko is actually a regular character, and Hades-Pluto-What_Have_You- is actually disguised as a Limpoturt on his head?

Edit: Also, I bet that dreamtuna Helios totally savescums all the time.

Hope you don't mind me double posting, my other post was months back.

Kelda got fused with Edchina because someone infected the ship with clockwork virus. The clockwork dart fortuna item would seem like a very suitable option for that task. Of course, nobody we know of has recieved clockwork darts. Or have they?

Helios made an overly specific mention of a quadruped animal, but we never saw what he took from the chest. Helios is known to work for mors AKA the guy who turned cobalt into a clockwork. What if Mors hired Helios as a hitman on Edchina? What if the Horsona was already unlocked, and he took the darts from the chest instead? It wouldn't be the first time for Helios to do an amoral and dirty job and he might not even remember that he did it.

We'd know: All Fortuna items we receive (via our crew getting them from the chest) are mentioned to us after winning, around the time the achievements are mentioned.

You know, I wonder how Thanatos and Mercury would act if they're in charge of saving. I bet Mercury might get pretty mean and do stuff like autosave just as bad things happen, and less often so you have to backtrack futher if the game crashes or you load. And then Thanatos probably isn't shy of deletion like Mors is. He might just overwrite your main game if you start a tutorial or perhaps delete the data of dead crewmembers so they can't be revived.

Edit: I bet there's certain kinds of mods that alter mechanics by changing the god powers of certain AI's. Like putting Poseidon in charge of the stars or giving control of the morale stat to Chronus.

Huh. Anyone else worried that this was almost a week ago, or do pauses like this happen often?

(Also, how do CFFs/Achilles' Sins mechanically work, again? Do you slap a positive and negative trait on them, buff their stats, plus "infinite" endurance, and that's it? Or is it more nuanced than that?)

Quote:They are going to save scum until they get a character with [All for one] the most over powered and rarest trait in the game. If it was easier to get an [All for one] character finding a way to kill the sun god would be a snap.

You know something I've been thinking about is that in the Hermes dream, it was specifically mentioned how a character with [All for One] may be one of the key elements for defeating the Sun God. I read this and of course I was like, aw Big BOssB had that, but we're done with that crew now so oh well.

But, I then realized that we can get him back. Our old crew is still out there in the universe even after we're done with them and we can even recruit them again, as shown on this planet. It's also likely that BOssB is still alive; whatever creature he is he was able to pose as a Generic who are creatures with unlimited lifespans. Therefore, I think it's worth making an effort to look for BOssB and find out where he is now for our inevitable match with the Sun God.

The fact that we are meeting almost our entire previous crew on this planet seems to be another indication that they could be relevant, especially noting the fact that so far we have been shown the whereabouts of all our alive Crew 1 members, EXPECT BOssB. His mysterious whereabouts point to them being a thing we have to work to find out about, highlighting its importance.

Helios has even TOLD US that BOssB was the best character on the crew, one of his favorites, and one of the main reasons we won. I think I don't have to stress how much of a good idea it is to listen to Helios at this point. And he has a point; remember how fast we defeated Mary-Jane with [All for One], and how much damage we did to the False Poet too?

Honestly I really wish I'd thought of this sooner because we could have asked Nova or Cobalt about it but now it's too late

Hmm. We do have access to a tracking device via our fortuna items. Perhaps we could get it to a friendly AI, and have them use it to track down BOssB.

Edit: Never mind it can't really track someone if you don't scan them first.

So, you know how Poseidon thinks that Neptune is a no-good pirate, and Neptune thinks the same about Poseidon? And you know how Poseidon is actually a tiny robot fish in the suit of a robot man, and Neptune, though right now only the twituna version of him, is a robot fish that is likely piloted by a tiny robot man?

I have a prediction of how things will turn out to be between them:
