Dear LINGUIST List Subscribers,

Last week, we asked you to choose the next adventure to be embarked upon by
the heroes of the Illocutionary Force. You voted with your donations, and
we must tell you, it was a staggeringly close competition! Just under half
of you voted for our adventurers to traverse the Tenuous Career Path, while
slightly more than half of you elected to send them to the ghastly Data
Graveyard. Accordingly, this week's story will find our heroes face to
face with the Data Graveyard and the horrors therein.

To whet your appetites, here's a snippet from this week's chapter of the

"Proto Baggins shivered. 'Are you sure we're going the right way, L2? This
landscape is awfully grim and foreboding. Not at all what I expected, given
our destination."

'I've checked the LL-MAP twice.' Second Lieutenant peered at the mystical
scroll, upon which any user could chart and retrieve locations
instantaneously. 'This is definitely the route. After we traverse the
treacherous Bluffs of Nonstandard Transcription, we should find ourselves
very near the Data Graveyard...'"

Read the entirety of Chapter Two (which, we must caution you, is both
terrifying and thought-provoking) over at the Saga page:


Happy reading, LINGQUESTers!
