Ep. 5 – Echoes

Twenty-second recording made by The Raconteur. When the satellite was recovered twelve years ago, most antiquarians believed it to date back to the Epoch of Renewal. However, evidence has now led us to believe that a great regression in technology occurred following the end of the Epoch of Profanation. This, paired with the recent discovery of similarly designed technologies within the Profanation Epoch’s stratum has spurred us to revise our theory, and place the launch of the satellite at the tail end of the Epoch of Profanation.

“The course of one’s life can be determined and diverted by so many forces. Some forces interior, some exterior. But whatever the cause, invariably the traveler is left with naught but one perilous question: What might have been?”

Ep. 4 – The Wilted Chrysanthemum

 

Ninth piece recorded by The Raconteur. The language in which The Raconteur speaks is an interesting one from an historical perspective. It’s only one of several thousand that we’ve discovered evidence of, but it’s the only one we’ve actually gotten to hear spoken aloud. Of course, so few in the world can actually “speak” it well enough to be able to listen to his recordings before the translation has taken place.

“What distinguishes a human being from any of the other living creatures with which they share a planet? It is a foreknowledge of their own demise. How one proceeds in this knowledge is how one is determined to be either a person of virtue, or a person of scorn. What if what happens to a person after death were determined by the way they were thought of by those left behind?”

Ep. 3 – The Wolf, The Spider, and The Zebra

Fourth piece recorded by The Raconteur. It’s been difficult trying to pinpoint when exactly these recordings were made, much less where. All we currently do know is that we’ve found no piece of digital data that post-dates these recordings anywhere in the world.

“Where should one’s loyalty lie? Should one lie to maintain that loyalty? In the end, the marriage of lies and loyalty begets not merely discord, but devastation.”

Episode 2 – The Lost Tributary

Seventh piece recorded by The Raconteur. The order seems random, though deliberately organized in such a way that could suggest a design.

 

“Never doubt a man to compromise everything he believes if he thinks he can get everything he wants.”

Episode 1 – The Parade Soldier

Time stamp data indicates that this is chronologically the second piece recorded by The Raconteur, yet placed first in his order. The data recovered from the ancient satellite of the first recording is corrupted.

“It is natural for a man who is short of stature to climb upon the shoulders of greater men to seem taller. In the end though, he fools no one but himself, and looks all the smaller for it.”
