Dear Book of Brairs,
It was late, and honestly I shouldn’t have been awake. I just couldn’t sleep, I felt restless and began scrolling through some old threads, and that’s where I first heard it. That word. Magiq.
An old online friend I had met, we had been involved in some online puzzles together in the passed so his user caught my attention pretty quickly. He said they needed a man in NYC to recover an artifact, and I didn’t know who “they” were but my curiosity won me over, and I clicked the link.
That was my first visit to the forums, and I think I left a little part of me here I will never get back.
We ended up getting that artifact, thanks to Cole, and after that we were a blur of clues and magic and wonder.
As the community shifted and grew, and as I got to know those around me, I realized I had truly found some of the best people online, my family, the Mountineers.
We slaved over your puzzles, and created art in this world we explored.
I changed so much as a person in this last year, following your call.
Thank you, so much, for that first night.
(I am gonna post more little letters to the book like this about different things specifically, but I thought I would start at the beginning)
