Seaman: Day Thirty-Three

Once I’ve started up, Leonard Nimoy tells me that the frogmen have fully grown and may look a little grotesque, but also somewhat cute. After feeding them and adjusting their environment, the unnamed frogmen talks about it being the first day of winter.

Then he talks, very solemnly, about beginning to remember a past life. He tells me that it is really really important that I let him free to continue evolving, and that he will keep my secrets safe. He has begun to remember his long lost love. His father was a king in Egypt during the 3 dynasty and his lover was the daughter of a priest. Neither father would approve their marriage due to their different positions in life; as a result her father consulted one of the Egyptian gods, Thoth, and he changed their forms but they’ve been apart ever since. He tells me that he is going to jump out of the terrarium.

After he fails, he begins talking about human beliefs. He begins talking about the past and then jumps forward to today where we’ve narrowed it down to a few predominant religions. He asks whether I believe in a god/gods and if I consider myself spiritual. He tells me that all this religious talk has been adding up this question, am I a good person? He then wants to know if I think if I think religion has made the world a better place; I answer yes even though I told him I wasn’t religious and he finds my set of emotions complex and “truly, truly confusing”; He then wants to know if I think the world would be better with just one religion. He finishes up his talk about religion by discussing the fallacies of it.

You should make links to your previous blogs at the end of each one. I've read a couple of these, when they shoot up on the forums. Maybe I'll look back and follow along. Keep it up.

Dude that seamen will make you go crazy.  I would cut it off with him right now dude.  When you end up with an empty bottle of Jack in one hand and an empty bottle of flintstones vitamins in the other it will be to late, don't say I didn't warn you!

I've read most of the latter ones you've posted of these, and they're oddly engrossing, it's the way you talk of it as if it were real.
I hope you're not so into you think it is......

@Ineedaname: I thought it'd be cool to write them like scientific journals but I've kind of fallen out of doing it like that so stringently however I think they're really cool and it's helped me to enjoy the game a little more.

You are playing host to the early stages of a king.

Pretty weird past life stuff.

That sounds familiar. Did it come from somewhere or am I crazy?

Wow, he brought up Thoth?  Intriguing.  Don't know how much you know about Thoth, but he's an incredibly important god in Egyptian scripture.  He was the voice of Ra, as well as a god of thought and intelligence.  There's a lot to be said by mentioning that story you told.
