    "Ok guys, I've deciphered the meaning of the glyphs. They say 'Seeker of wisdom, servant, maybe son, the translation is iffy, Yugr or maybe Yoag, Setheth, deliverer of the people, here meaning slaves, of the water, bearer of the spirits of Nar-Loth-hoteo, child of Thoth, Seeker of Wisdom"

    ((who's gonna check the journal? dib it in the OOC thread; it takes four hours, so you probably want to meet in somebody's study or something))

    ((To clarify: there was an original large metal box, nominally featureless. Inside is a ornate gold box, engraved with heiroglyphics. Next to it was a small leather-bound journal. Additionally, there was an old, yellowing envelope with a key and a deed to a house inside. Presumably the key goes in the house.))

    Sam sits at a table in an awkward but intent fashion. For a long time he doesn't say anything as he pores over the journal, and waves the other men away if they try to speak. Finally he asks John to begin grabbing the yearbooks for the years 1881-1882.

    Jon grabs the books that he requests and sits at the table next to Sam

    ((The names that were in the glyphs))

    They are eldritch and ancient pagan gods, but not many known cults currently worship them.

    ((they're huge parts of the Call of Cthulhu pantheon: read more of Mr. Lovecraft's work to find out more!))
