I'm back!! Ladies and gentlemen, dear friends, colleagues and readers, this is Aldarow, once again, broadcasting from the Holy Land, after successfully finishing my spiritual hibernation. As many of you already know, my comeback was gradual: I was (the secret is revealed!) the mysterious watcher that appeared in several issues; I took part in recent chats, and answered some of the special letters; in my absence, Rinor did a great job running our e-zine, but I was the one making the final editing.
During my time off I succeeded to close certain personal circles, and more important than that - I have finally found the meaning, the purpose. This newsletter is a part of it.
All in all, last weeks were very peaceful and tranquil for me... until I got the following short message from a Chosen One:
"I also warn that an Old One has escaped its prison, and has been killing children. The other Chosen are trying to monitor the situation."
Yes, these are the proverbial BAD NEWS. Immediately some of our global group began to investigate the occurrence. Rinor went into the trance, when we visited the Dune on last week's Friday, but the messages he received from his Inspector were inconclusive and elusive, something like "it is not your business, there is nothing you can do about it". On the IRC chat that night Balor supposed it could be, as Lovecraftian mythology suggests, Nyarlathothep, Their faceless messenger. Elijah's meditation produced also the following: "Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea, for the devil is come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows he has but a short time."
And there have been too many extreme cases of violence among children lately, especially in USA, and here, in Israel, teenagers being stabbed. And just last Saturday a man was shot (but not to death) almost near the door of my apartment! Maybe this event was meant for me, although I seriously doubt it. Disturbing dreams came to me a couple of days later.
Take a look at this image, xMarksTheSpot.gif (ftp://anomalous-images.com/pub/anomalou/xMarksTheSpot.gif). I've dreamt of similar pattern, this time the lines were forming rectangular walls around an area somewhere in North-Western USA, perhaps around Idaho. What do you think it could mean?
