For that is what it is.

Two forums have been created today that I have joined. I do not join many forums at all - in fact, I am highly selective - and yet it has come to pass that two of my fascinations, two subjects which is praise and worship, have seen fit to include the plebians in their chorus.

The first was Merekat Creations Forum, of my favourite graphic artist. Merekat (Kristen Perry) is a woman I truly admire. Several of her prints adorne the walls of my house and I was honoured to recieve them in a personalised poster-container with a lovely (if daft) image of a grinning merekat.

The second was, of course, this very forum. I have followed MINERVA since the first mention of it in PC Gamer UK, checking the blog daily and playing it over and over again. Being an Acolyte, a dedicated member of the community, has been great fun and will continue to be so as more and more chapters are released.

So, my lucky day, all in all :)

Dear faithful Acolytes,

Yes, it is indeed recommended that you remain mindful of the impending death of this discussion forum. For the impermanence of your existence must be known from as early a stage as possible. Mortality is the only option for your kind.

One minor observation: that figment of my imagination you call the 'Master' would appear to be most concerned about the location of one Acolyte in particular. Derby? Try ten kilometres north for the Master's supposed location...

Yours,

Minerva

Oh, a hint perhaps? from the master no less. A hint of the origins of super human intelect? Or one of the base of operations?

Being the enlightened Alcolyte that I am I am privy to the sublime inner workings of the creative process of Masters pawn, Mr Foster. Is it that Master and toy are living together, or is master simply projected into the vistage of foster?

or is master herself the pawn?

but would that be unthinkable?

Eh-up lad, so you're a northerner eh? THAT might explain a thing or three.

What happened to the infamous Belgian flat....oh wait, I forgot, we have left the realm of Cargocult, and entered that of Minerva herself...and of purplish prose, judging by some of these 'ere posts...my apologies Your Unfathomableness...

Kast, your signature is rather alarming, what does it refer to exactly? Eleven inch....good for charms...good grief! Add to that Guargantua's musings "...master and toy are living together..." and, well, just what kind of place have I strayed into?

...."pawn" you say, homophonic typo, I say...

That was a rather charmless welcoming screen I encountered upon registering to enter Your realm, Your Maliciousness..."..abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening,."...I suppose these are attributes that You alone are to wield...and they are a rather fitting description of Your ingame missives....

Baffled - I choose to politely ignore the implications of your line of questioning, unless I am to redirect you to my signature again and the image of a wand. The format and style should be obvious to any follower of Madam Rowling's magnum opus.

Minerva - If I may ask, how do you intend us to make the most of our limited existence? I beg direction, instruction, commandment, lest I be forced plead insanity before judgement at the feet of Hades, Anubis or the wonderous Valkyrie for having wasted the opportunity presented.

I for one welcome mortality, particular its end. To live forever seems to me the greatest torment one could endure. Mortality is the only option I would bare to accept, and the knowledge of it is with me always.

What a happy coincidence that the Master habitates in such proximity. I'm estimating Ilkeston, possibly Heanor, as his precise locality.

I think we all seek either answers or direction.

and im sure many of us alcolytes don't mind the concept of oblivion

The end of Minerva's reign will end in time, like all those before her. Though they may seem eternal during their existence, past events indicate that the mighty must fall.

We acolytes should hold no illusions - Our Lady's existence is as transitory as our own. But, oh, what we can accomplish in our time.

minervas reign... transitory, yes... but minervas nature... different, as yet undefined perhaps.
