“Furthermore, I am of the opinion that Carthage should be destroyed.”
It really is. Tunisia was one of the historical seats of the Phoenicians. If we’re going there, we’re scenting out the Purple.
This might not seem like much at first glance, but there’s an old series of ARGs that came right before release involving a neutral faction called the Sanctuary of Secrets.
They were kind of a big deal. Debatably a huge deal, except they never showed up at all in the game despite featuring heavily in the final teasers leading up to TSW’s release. Also, they came in hot at the heels of Aveline Belmont’s saga, which did make it in.
Then later when “Choose Your Own” came out and introduced the idea of The Swarm and The Hive, there was a resurgence of theories around the Sanctuary of Secrets.
Why does any of this matter and what does it have to do with the Phoenicians, you ask? The Phoenicians were historically the guardians of Greece and the Sanctuary of Secrets - until 2011 when the Council of Venice and the Phoenicians apparently had a skirmish under the cover of the 2011 Greek protests.
So, if we do go to Tunisia? I expect a bone thrown at us in regards to that old series of ARGs; historical seat of the Purple People Eaters that’s right across the way from Greece? Come on.
