MED SEA EXPEDITION: My father died in a tragic accident while searching
for Avalon, the mythical resting place of King Arthur. I never shared his
belief that it had played any role in my mother's disappearance, but recent
events make me suspect otherwise. Professor Eddington knew the coordinates
Father intended to investigate next, but did not know how he had determined
them or if he had confirmed the existence of a ruin at the location. That's
up to me.

NIFLHEIM: Niflheim - World of Mist. One of the nine worlds of Norse mythology,
linked by Yggdrasil, the World Tree. While it seems clear that Niflheim is an
underworld metaphor, original sources are contradictory as to whether it is
distinct from Helheim, where those who did not die gloriously in battle go
after death.

KRAKEN: Kraken are monstrously large creatures in mythology. Thought to be
based on sightings of giant squid, not to be confused with the sea serpents
in Nordic tradition, though both were blamed for the disappearances of ships
of all sizes. This beast clearly is a recent addition to this ruin and
subsequently grew to large to leave again.

THOR: Thor is the god of thunder in Norse mythology and is most known for
his mighty weapon, Mjolnir, variously described as a battle axe, a mace, or
a war hammer, though most commonly depicted as the latter. Among other powers,
it could supposedly channel lightning against Thor's foes. Just as the legend
of Excalibur was a myth built up around an ancient artifact of great power, the
myth of Thor's hammer might be a distorted description of a real ancient weapon.

THOR'S GUANTLETS: It was said that Thor could only wield Mjolnir by wearing a
special pair of guantlets. The gauntlet I discovered in Niflheim could very
well be the source of this myth. Most of the gauntlet itself crumbled to the
touch, but the carved knot of stone and metal in its center was undamaged
by age. It extended metal tendrils and conformed to the dimensions of my
hand perfectly. Clearly this is the ancient source of power of the artifact
and the rest of the gauntlet was added separately later.

AMANDA EVERT: Amanda has never forgiven me for believing she was dead and 
leaving her buried in the Peruvian tomb of the last Quen of Tiwanaku. When
I found out she had survived and later escaped, I wondered if I too could
forgive myself. But our clash over the search for King Arthur's sword
Excalibur dulled my guilt, and knowing that Amanda played a role in what
happened to my mother has squashed the feeling entirely. The only reason
I let her live was to someday learn more of what she knows, but if her aim
is to kill me outright, I might have to change that strategy.

NATLA: Natla was the Immortal Queen of Atlantis, and more recently the CEO
of Natla Technologies. Somehow she lost her connection with the powerful
artifacts of her reign millennia ago, and recently began devoting her 
knowledge  and intellect towards recovering it all from ancient sites
around the world. Her aim is to Initiate what she calls The Seventh
Age, of what I know nothing other than that it would be a very bad
turn for humanity. I buried her on a remote island, but apparently
Amanda has dug her out and is keeping her prisoner as her own
personal Encyclopaedia Atlantica. I hope Amanda understands that she's
sitting on a time bomb, and that everything Natla tells here is filtered
by her own agenda.

THAILAND EXPEDITION: I don't know the extent to which my father worked
with Natia, or how much truth there is in what she said, but she acts
only out of self-interest, so any help or information she provides is
because she wants something I want. I can therefore assume that whether
my father explored this site or not, there is likely something here that
will get me closer to Avalon.

BHOGAVATI: Bhogavati is the capital of Patala, the seventh netherworld 
of Hindu tradition. It is populated by naga, which in the most notorious
descriptions are large snake-people. The architectural style of this ruin
ha snever been found this far southwest before and is older than any other
I am familiar with, which changes tour notions of how these Hindu traditions
moved throughout Asia.

NAGA: Naga are the snake-people of Patala who, among other things, were
keepers of amrita, an elixir that bestowed eternal life. The primeval reptiles
around this ruin possibly inspired the myth of the naga, or just as likely
contributed to existing Hindu tradition due to their unusual appearance.

LAYERS OF HISTORY: The Hindu ruins are ancient, but the Niflheim site is far
older still - old enough to have been above sea level at the tail end of the
last ice age. These ruins here are stylistically identical and of comparable
age. The Hindu built on top of the far older ruins below, creating this stark
contrast of architectural style and weathering. 

THOR'S STRENGTH: Of all the gods in human mythology, Thor was among the
strongest. The stories of his strength stem from the truth, however, as the
power of his gauntlet stone somehow activates specially prepared objects and
renders him virtually weightless. Doubtless this would have appeared as
extraordinary strength to anyone unaware of the ancient artifact being
employed.

ODIN: Odin is the god of wisdom in Norse mythology, and father to Thor. In
one account, he gained his wisdom by sacrificing his eye to the wellspring
beneath Yggdrasil, the World Tree. There he foresaw Ragnarök, the final
battle that would destroy the world and the gods themselves, and also that
even with this knowledge he would be unable to stop it.

ODIN'S MAP ROOM: On the wall is written: "My son, your treasures here and
far are protected by the dead - this gauntlet's twin, Megingjord, and the 
mighty Mjolnir - to keep Jörmungandr subdued." Whether the historical Odin
was the literal farther of Thor is not certain, but the two figures were
related in some manner. Thor's hammer, belt, and gauntlets were apparently
hidden throughout the world to restrain the Midgard Serpent, Jörmungandr.
What this means exactly, and the nature of the Midgard Serpent are unknown.
Perhaps the reference to how the artifacts are "protected by the dead" is a
clue.

CROFT FAMILY CRYPT: In Bhogavati, father inscribed a message that read, 
"Natla - I see your goal and am your puppet no longer." Whatever partnership
they had dissolved because of what he found there, and it must have been of
major significance because I have never known Father to desecrate a site like
that. But he left me a clue that I believe tells me where he concealed the
artifacts and information he recovered from Thailand.

GIANT SPIDERS: These giant spiders must have come from Thailand along with
everything that Father brought back from Bhogavati.

FATHER'S SECRET: Father believed that the myth of the Midgard Serpent reveals
that Avalon holds the answer to my mother's fate, but also a terrible weapon
that Natla must never find. It is a testament to his determination that he
kept such dangerous secrets intact here in the hope that I alone would find
them in the event of his death. As much as I want to discover what happened
to my mother in Nepal all those years ago. I may have to reconsider whether
it's worth the risk of also unleashing this destructive force.

THRALLS: The term "thrall" referred to a kind of slave to the Norse. The god
Thor traveled in the company of two thralls, Pjálfi and Röskva, and also with
him were two goats, Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjöstr, which pulled his chariot.
These goats were special, in that Thor could cook and eat them each night, and
restore them the next morning with a single touch as long as he had not damaged
their skeletons. Father apparently was thinking of this when he named these
animated tiger skeletons. By what means they are kept animate I don't know,
but I think I have seen something of what Odin meant by the artifacts of Thor
being protected by the dead.

WRAITH STONE: Years ago when Amanda and I were excavating the tomb of the last
Queen of Tiwanaku, at a dig site outside of Paraiso, Peru, we were attacked by
an unknown force that manifested as a smoky energy being. Amanada found the
stone that was its source and learned to use it. When she turned it against
me in Bolivia, I defeated them and took the stone. It seems that Amanda's sole
purpose for this attack on my home was to recover this Wraith Stone.

DOPPELGANGER: My previous encounter with Natla ended on a lost island containing
a myriad of ancient devices, one of which was capable of creating an automation 
of sorts that duplicated both my body and abilities, though it was skinless -
having no need for any - and merely parroted my actions, a tactic which I used
against it to destroy it. It seems that Amanda, with Natla's help, has created
another doppelganger of me, this time with skin and a mind of its own. If it
truly can do everything I can do and more, it will be more than my match should
it ever be sent to kill me.

MEXICO EXPEDITION: The location of Thor's belt in Central America was easist
to pinpoint precisely on Odin's map, and I need it before I can use Thor's
hammer anyway, so it's convenient to recover it first while Zip works on
refining the precise location of Thor's hammer. Zip doesn't understand how
I can continue the search after Alister's murder, but I am convinced this
path also leads straight to those responsible. And if Thor's hammer can 
indeed kill even the gods, then perhaps I will finally have the power to end
Natla's immortal reign permanently.

POACHERS: This area is the most rural and lawless region of Mexico, remote
enough that some of its farmers do not even speak Spanish, but Mayan, far 
enough away that heavily armed men have moved in to poach the protected
black panthers here from throughout the surrounding area, unaware that the
scattered ancient ruins here and only a hint of what lies beneath.

MAYAN BALL COURT: The rules to the game played on these ancient ball courts
are lost to history, but it's believed that it was played frequently and
sometimes for high stakes, as the losing team was sacrificed to the gods. It
is of particular interest to me, as it was believed that the Mayan underworld
of Xibalba was underneath a ball court.

MAYAN CAALENDAR: The Maya had many calendars for various purposes. The solar
calendar consisted of eighteen months of twenty days each, which left five
extra days to fill out the 365-day tropical year. Names of these months
varied greatly over time and distance, but the five extra days were known as
the unnamed days. These days were feared because it was believed that the
gates to the underworld would open during this time.

XIBALBA: Xibalba - Place of Fear. It's unclear whether Xilbalba was thought
to be a supernatural afterlife or a city of people who worshipped death.
Commonly  believed to have been in Guatemala, it appears Xilbalba is father
to the northwest than previously thought. If the pattern of Thor's artifacts
giving rise to local underworld myths holds, then I might find things akin
to the thrall tigers my father brought back from Bhogavati, Thailand.

LORDS OF XIBALBA: The Lords of Xibalba reportedly enjoyed using manikins of 
to humiliate visitors before sending them into deadly trap rooms. These
themed tests supposedly were to test the worth of the visitors, but were really
intended to kill them outright for entertainment.

LAYERS REVISITED: Just like I saw in Thailand, this is another example of an
old culture building over a more ancient one. This architecture the Maya built
upon is the same style and age as what I found in Niflheim and also beneth
Bhogavati, Thailand. Perhaps the Hindu put Shiva and Kali over the ruins there
to seal them up, possibly to protect themselves from the lower ruins as they
were infested with tiger thralls like father brought home.

RAGNARÖK: Norse myth holds that the world will end in an epic battle of
Ragnarök, which will result in the death of the gods and monsters and the
destruction of civilization. Figuring prominently in this eschatological
myth is Jörmungandr, the Midgard Serpent, which is so large that it
encircles the entire world on the bottom of the ocean. During Ragnarök,
the Midgard Serpent rises up, causing floods and spewing its poison into the
air. Thor will use Mjolnir to kill Jörmungandr but will also die from the
Serpents venom.

MAYAN THRALLS: What happened to the tigers in Thailand happened here as well,
to jaguars and ancient Mayan warriors. Anything falling into that toxic,
glowing liquid dies, but continues to remain animate, with only one purpose: 
to kill trespassers and throw them into the pool, where they will join the
guardian ranks. Later civilizations probably sealed them up not only to
protect themselves from the thralls below, but to stop the curious from
going down and adding to the ranks of the animated dead protecting the
artifacts.

EITR: In Norse myth, eitr was an elixir that bestowed eternal life to the
gods, but paradoxically it was a poison that came from serpents, like the
Midgard Serpent. This is similar to the Hindu concept of amrita, or 
ambrosia to the Greeks. Only the Norse came the closest to the literal
turth: that the substance was indeed a poison, and in fact only gave
the appearance of eternal life in the animation of corpses. At some
point there must have been a similar pool of this substance in Bhogavati,
Thailand to create the tiger thralls, and it either decayed in the past or
my father dispersed it somehow.

THOR'S BELT: The myth held that only with the additional strength bestowed
upon Thor by the enchanted belt, Megingjord, could he wield the weapon
Mjolnir. Now I see that the belt - also ornately augmented by later users -
is the source of power for the gauntlets. They channel the belt's power to
those large special objects too large to move unless so equipped. Each of the
two gauntlets I found must have contained a small amount of residual power in
them that quickly drained without the belt to replenish them. I believe I have
a good idea how Thor's hammer might work when I find it.

JAN MAYEN EXPEDITION: Having found Thor's belt and gauntlets in parts of the
world less far from civilization, I feel confident that I will find Thor's
hammer here undisturbed. Perhaps this site being so remote will also mean
no undead guardians lurking within to complicate my search.

VIKING THRALLS: What isn't clear is whether these poor souls were Vikings
who stumbled upon this place, fell victim to its eitr, and became the
thralls, or whether these undead guardians are far more ancient warriors
whose appearance later influenced the Nordic cultures that came after. Either
way, they are capable of fighting fiercely and ceaselessly, and perhaps the
origin of the stories of berserker warriors.

VALHALLA: Valhalla - Hall of the Slain. The valkyries escorted the souls of
warriors who died gloriously to this great hall of Odin. Each day they would
slaughter each other in battle scrimmages to prepare for the final battle of
Ragnarök, only to be restored and repeat the exercise again the next day.
This site represents the clearest connection between the myth as we
understand it and the reality of these animated corpses put here to
protect the artifact the Norse came to call Mjolnir. 

VALGRIND: Valgrind - the Sacred Gate. Protecting Valhalla is a great
gate of size and cunning such that few knew how it could be opened. 
Now I see that it's through both the application of understanding and
the strength of Thor bestowed by his artifacts.

VALKYRIES: Valkyries - meaning Choosers of the Slain - were the minor
deities who chose which fallen warriors were worthy enough to be escorted
to Valhalla. Often depicted as women with winged helms or as riding horses,
a more literal truth comes from the fact that the Old Norse word for wolf
translates as Valkyrie Horse. It is believed that valkyries and their mounts
are metaphors for the ravens and wolves to descend upon the dead after a battle
and choose among them.

YETI THRALLS: While it's difficult to identify the corpse of a Yeti after it
has lost its hair, that is clearly what these creatures once were. Whether they
were capable of equipping themselves with armor in the distant past or were
used as beasts of burden or a warrior class, they would have been formidable
creatures that could be the giants that populate all Norse mythology.

THOR'S HAMMER: Mjolnir was the supremely powerful weapon used by Thor, mainly
to fight giants, and then ultimately to destroy the Midgard Serpent in the
battle of Ragnarök. Only functional when one is equipped with the belt and
gauntlets, these artifacts are far more ancient than the mythology that
immortalized them and the men who subsequently hid them throughout the world.
Norse myth focused solely on Mjolnir's destined role in killing Jörmungandr,
but it conveniently overlooked the fact that Mjolnir is also the only means
by which the Midgard Serpent can be released in the first place.

ANDAMAN SEA EXPEDITION: Inscribed in stone around the doorway leading to Thor's
hammer, Odin wrote: "Thor, greatest of my sons, and the greatest weapon on
Earth, are at last reunited. Upon my return, through rituals old and the power
of Mjolnir, together we will open the seals of Helheim and fulfill our
destinies." I don't like the sound of old rituals, or of fulfilling destinies
given how the ultimate destiny of the Norse is destruction at the battle of
Ragnarök, but at least I have the power of Mjolnir and the means to extract
the information I want from Natla.

ARCTIC SEA EXPEDITION: The coordinates Natla gave me were in the Arctic Sea
northest of Greenland. I don't know how she intends to get to Helheim, but my
plan is to blow a hole in the sea ice and dive straight down. If I don't
finally get the answers I've been looking for, there will be hell to pay.

HELHEIM: Helheim - World of Hel, here the goddess Hel, depicted as a women
on one side and a corpse on the other, presided over all souls that did not
go to Valhalla after death. Judging by the ruined road and drawbridge, this
site must be even more ancient than Niflheim to have been above sea level
at some point. The top is heavily encased in permanent sea ice, so there may
have been another ,dryer way to get inside from somewhere above had Natla
given more precise coordinates, but I think I'd rather go in through the
front door.

YGGDRASIL: Yggdrasil - The World Tree and binding element of all nine worlds
of the Norse universe. Supposedly Helheim was situated under the roots of
Yggdrasil. There is another myth that a great serpent, Níðhöggr, gnaws at
the roots of Yggdrasil. Possibly this is another manifestation of the 
Midgard Serpent, which supports the theory that this site houses something
monstrously world-threatening.

NORNS: The norns were female deities who governed the fate of men, and in
various cultures, including Greek, were often represented as three women -
young, middle-aged, and old - who represented the past, present, and
future. Somewhat indistinguishable from valkyries, they also resided
beneath the roots of Yggdrasil and wove the tapestry of existence leading
all the way to the end of the world.

JORMUNGANDER: Jörmungandr is actually a metaphor describing the mid-oceanic
ridges where all the continental plates of the world meat, thus "circling
the earth on the sea floor." The northernmost point of the Mid-Atlantic
ridge is the oldest and weakest geologic point on Earth, and the Ancients
built a powerful device poised to attack the planet's Achilles' heel, to
trigger worldwide volcanic eruptions, which would "rise up and fill the 
air with poison." Ragnarök concludes with the world consumed by fire,
caused by giants in the myth but by volcanic eruptions in reality. Why
such a device would be built might be forever beyond our ability to know.

MOTHER: In the end, my father was right, and so was I. The thought of
Mother suddenly appearing in that cold ruin at the top of the world is
tragic beyond words. Whether she then fell into the eitr or was cast
in by the thralls, I hope it came quickly. I wish that both Mother and
Father had better fates than those I discovered, but at least I learned
the truth and can finally close this book and move on to another.

Gem (Shiva): A magnificent gem. Based on its size, it was probably meant to
adorn something of immense scale.

Jaguar Head: The head of a jaguar, carved in stone. The post mounted at the
bottom of it's thraot indicates it's intended as part of a larger animal
figure.

Stone Headdress: A stone carving of a skull wearing a ceremonial headdress.
Most likely it is only part of a larger statue.

and only obtainable through trail by ordeal.

and only obtainable through trail by ordeal.

=================================Gear==========================================

Grapple: Firing a high-tension swing line with a tensile strength in excess
of 1000 kg. This high grade stainless steel grappling hook and be fired quickly
and accurately with a lightning fast auto-restrict safely.

Utility Light: This utility light is a rugged, waterproof light source that
offers hands-free, high-intensity illumination, and a sensor that detects
levels of ambient light and automatically shuts down as necessary.

Filed Camera: The weather resistant camera features a high-powered digital
zoom capable of high detail, long distance view finding.

Scuba: This custom SCUBA set features unusually small and sportily diving
cylinders, which allow greater freedom of movement than conventional
diving gear.

PDA: As the latest generation of Personal Data Assistants, this device
can perform various tasks necessary while 'in the wild' including a 
sonar mapping module designed to create low-resolution 3D maps of the
surroundings, a data archive and reference retrieval library, and 
long-range satellite communications.

Thor's Gauntlets: Thor's steel gauntlet, without which the powerful
Mjolnir cannot be gripped.

Thor's Belt: Thor's enchanted belt Megingjord was believed to enhance
the thunder god's already prodigious might. Only with the additional
strength bestowed by the belt it possible to wield the mighty
Mjolnir.

==================================Weapons======================================

Pistols: The RGB Mach 5 pistol combines features tailored towards both
military personnel and competitive sharpshooters. The inclusion of
adjustable target sights, an active recoil reduction system, and
extended capacity magazines makes for a truly sophisticated weapon.

Submachine Guns: The Autsi submachine gun was originally designed as
a military firearm for close combat situations. Although not as accurate
as the assault-rifle or a high-powered shotgun, the high rate of fire and
increased ammunition capacity makes the Autsi a formidable weapon.

Shotgun: The '12 gauge GN Tactical Shotgun' features an 18-inch barrel
and telescoping stock. While its front and rear sights do increase accuracy,
the GNT Shotgun is most dangerous in close quarters and is less effective
over long distances.

Assault Rifle: The A12 Carbine Assault Rifle is a favorite among special
operation units due to the shorter barrel, which increases portability 
without sacrificing firepower. The fully automatic A12 features a large
ammo capacity to balance out its increased rate of fire and is a highly
accurate weapon over long distances.

Transquilizer Gun: The Sheridan MK-5 uses compressed gas to fire a 15mm
tranquilizer dart at high velocity. The "Mark-5" is a bolt-action weapon
where each dart must be manually loaded into the chamber. More than one
dart may be required for large or overly aggressive animals, and some 
enemies may not be affected at all.

Spear Gun: Utilized primarily for undersea fishing, the Stingray T-40
Carbon speargun uses compressed CO2 to expel metal flechettes with
razor sharp tips. The Stingray is a pump-action weapon where each
flechette must be chambered individually. Clearly superior both in
accuracy and range underwater, its effectiveness is dramatically
reduced on land.

Sticky Grenade: As the spiritual successor to the "Sticky Bomb" used
by British Forces in World War II, the Sticky Grenade was originally
designed as an anti-tank weapon. The grenade has been modified to
cling to any surface, and care should be taken when attaching one
to any moving object or enemy. 

Thor's Hammer: Mjolnir, the great hammer of the thunder god Thor. It
was said that he could draw down the lightning from the heavens and
smite his enemies with its power.
