Mini Episode: A Wayward Scribe

A model letter from c.1250 BCE tells us of a wayward scribe, who fell off the path of ma’at and became lost in drunkeness, indolence and womanizing. Disappointed in his former pupil, a schoolmaster writes to the scribe, rebuking him for his lifestyle and failures. Warning: this content may not be suitable for all ages.

    Hi there? Where are ypur sub-chapters for episodes 1 and 2 now? I mean the onea about Verd de Gris and all that.

      Hi Ankh,
      They are removed, as I am about to release the new versions of episodes 1-4 to the public. The story has been rewritten from the ground up, making those old “sub-chapters” irrelevant.
