Mystaran Campaign: After the Asteroid

Talos Hates Fae?
After the dust of the Asteroid that descimated the Known World settled vagabond Preachers speaking on behest of some Immortal or other, though none of them could call on their immortal for spells, began preaching some message or other.

Though the message was unique to their immortal, it was also clear. Their immortal was the only immortal.

Disaster Movie: Airbus threat to depart UK over Brexit

An Airbus Brexit
Hah! They are threatening the idiots who have thrown the James Bond cinema universe into chaos. At the rate the UK is going, it will disintergrate into little nuclear armed petty fiefdoms and the next James Bond will involve the final hours of the UK as a nation... and still be out of date.

Old Stuff: Translating Minoan

So that trident is the TH rune making at least those three pictograms in minoan a mix of primitive viking runes forming a proto-greek word THTA. It could be ETA if that trident was an E not a TH. The fletching A from the arrow AR is present so somewhere is going to be the arrow-head R.

Star Arrow: Rocks from the Sky

The Scottish Star-Arrow family/clan Names (Starar: star arrow)
Strachan:                    Starar-charn
Straiton:                      Starar-kuton
Strange:                      Starar-ngku

Sta- is a post exodus value refering to camping near a swamp. We know they are present during the Iron Age in celtic regions.

In close proximity to the event, they migrate to Scotland from Estonia. The event gives rise to the iron age. Taking the events as a bad omen they migrated as far west as they could go taking their primitive boats and head west through the Mediterranean. This mass migration

Mystical Location: Laestrygon (Larku-starku-kugon); (Starku: Star-bow/hollow). This star phonetic marker indicates an impact event described by the same language subgroup as the clans that are named for the star-ar.

Time: Though considered to have occured around 2700BCE-2000BCE Iridium in nearby bogs puts it at 400BCE. The event occurs near the beginning of the iron age.

Dead Spiders: we need Tarantino to kill Peter Parker

I think we need Quentin Tarantino to play the role of the Tinkerer who blows away Peter Parker setting in motion numerous different Spidey replacements. Peter Parker strikes me as an organ donor. Thats an ideal scenario where his bone marrow goes to kids with cancer, his heart to a girl named Gwen Stacey, a kidney to a kid named Miles Morales, and maybe the tinkerer mops up some of the blood and gives it to a tiny alien organism he picked up in the street after the events of the Avengers.

Say it with me... Death to Spiderman!
