Children of Raxxla Report: The Underworld Theory (DECLASSIFIED)

Extraordinary piece of work. Well deserved rep! I will have this translated to Polish for the enjoyment of our community if you don't mind? I'll reference and source and the author of course.
Absolutely, feel free to share this with your community. I am honored that you find my work worthy of translation. Thank you!
 
Sorry no. It's 3303. I'm afraid science and common sense wins for me over semi-religious mythical babble in understanding the universe. You enjoy it though.

Few aliens appear and out come the tin foil hats with conspiracy theories and religious nutters looking for meaning.

Truth is a lot simpler. We are humanity. We learn as we grow. We are not the first here and won't be the last. There is nothing supernatural going on, it's just other life who grew up first or differently and government keeping secrets for self interest.

It will be the average Joe who understands reality and learns from it who will eventually solve what some call the mysteries but is just something we don't yet know, and I'll wager a round for everyone in the bar at Lave station on that one.

Symbology may work for you, but not me.

I'll definitely enjoy the extra cheese though. Cheers.

The only thing I can say for you Children is that at least I trust you more than Feds, Imps or Alliance. I might think what you say is a load of mumbo jumbo but I do believe that you believe it.
Take the indiana jones approach he doesnt believe it but by following the mythology they can know what the zealot believes in and predict their actions against events and myths significant to those beliefs
 
After being found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment, her prisoner convoy was mysteriously destroyed, right down to the escape pods. The ships of the convoy bore the Latin names "Diadem", "Cypripedium", "Velum", "Monile", and "Vestimenta"; these roughly translate to "tiara", "slipper", "veil", "necklace", and "clothing". Again it seems these are references to the garments removed by Inanna, and we may assume that Salomé has again descended to the underworld - whether literally, in death, or figuratively once more. And again we are reminded to look to the "core" of the problem, and warned that "winter is coming," as it does when Kore (Persephone) returns to the underworld.
Regarding the ship names and their link to the overarching mythological background, this is the text of a post of mine from the Formidine Rift thread:

If the names of the ships are significant, that must be for one of two reasons:

1. Because the author wants us to make the connection - and they're willing to stretch the bounds of probability and coincidence in order to do so.
2. Because in-game characters, for in-game reasons, made it happen.

Personally, I hope it's option 2. because then things get really interesting...

In order for the murderous terrorist to be escorted by ships with significant names when she was 'disappeared', someone with a high level of authority within the Empire must have been aware in advance that the interception of the convoy was planned and arranged escort ships appropriately.
Since the ship names are meaningful to people trying to solve the Rift mystery, rather than the cover-up faction, it follows that the attack on the prisoner transport was performed by forces who support discovery rather than suppression.

Then we have to ask, why would any group who wants to solve the Rift mystery want Kahina dead?
The Independent Rift Explorers Alliance thinks she's a dangerous psychopath who belongs in a secure facility - but that's exactly where she was being transported and anyway, the IREA don't do the violence thing.

So, conclusions we can draw:
Kahina is alive and under the protection of a group who wish to support her efforts to uncover whatever lies in the Rift.

Just curious when was it confirmed the woman Salome met with in Tionisla is in fact Elyssia Fields, and is she the old woman Salome met in the Ferenchia clinic or is that old woman someone else or different creche model number or someone else or do you know? Also when Salome interred the old woman's cobra in the Graveyard you made no mention of interring the old woman with her ship as one might assume there's a body in the casket when there perhaps isn't, is that from knowledge or the fact no mention of the corpus was made in Galnet or something else?

Congrats, a finely written compendium.

When it comes to identifying unnamed characters, we must always be careful to pay close attention to physical descriptions. Hairstyles in particular come into play here, especially for female characters - Elyssia's hair is always described as an unusual spiked style, a description repeated in the Tionisla scene of the CoR novella.

The "old woman" Salomé met in Ferenchia in Reclamation, as well as bringing her Cobra to Tionisla in Altera, has brown hair in a simple hairstyle, in folds on either side of her head. Keen readers may recognize this description as matching Rebecca Weston, the main character of Drew's Oolite Saga. We must be clear that those stories are not canon in the Elite: Dangerous universe, but it seems Drew has been able to bring in some aspects of her character. Altera itself is definitely worth a read, it is short but quite enlightening regarding the placement of the Cobra in Tionisla. It would seem the "old woman" has been through quite a lot, having been silenced and her memory erased, multiple times. It is hard to say whether this apparent death is her final one. Perhaps we will be able to investigate ourselves when the Tionisla Orbital Graveyard opens to the public.

Thanks.

Yes these are indeed unique characters then, these women who never change their hair.
 
Any comment to make regarding that Salome is not Salome at all and that she is in fact in the body of Jaques the Cyborg and that Salome's original body perished and that the consciousness inhabiting the body was a Guardian AI?

I'm not sure which would be of more benefit for you. Tinfoil, or Olanzapine! :D

Oh hey I never thought of it like that, always kind of - personally - cringing at hints of 'roleplay' :eek: (disclaimer: do not be offended at my personal cringing)

Not bad - have a +rep

p.s. Interesting OP.

I am afraid not all CoR investigations have been declassified, and as such, I am not at liberty to discuss evidence regarding this matter. [wink]
 
This is genuinely eerie. Because both Skyjack (the player) and duchess Vela Delarue (her avatar, the cmdr) just so randomly happen to represent the house and lineage of the operative who ultimately got the fracking damsel in distress safely out of Irkalla in the Descent. Can't get away from this story no matter what I do in this life *eyeroll*

But genuinely awesome work. Even if it is not 'true' it's awesome read.
