Sorry for taking so long. I've been having a rough time.

I meant in-story. It belongs to a society that's Grecian, or would be found through ancient Athens writings. That or SA tribe languages, but those are much more of a pain to look up than ancient Greek (or even PIE). Anyway, the name they found for it through Grecian writings would probably be in Greek.

It does sound like a pretty good story, overall.

But then, I doubt MorcuCorp ever read the list. Just mentioned it because it amused me.

Another is memory. I don't remember most of them. The seventh veil was life and death, as Merlin informs Indy when he has a near-death experience at the end of the book. Rob MacGregor's Indy books weren't bad, but they got a little weird at times.


A little weird?

I'm probably about the least justified in complaining on either account. Hope you're feeling better.

Okay, that does sound far more insane. So the doubles are alternate-universe selves who live inside the planet? Or did the double at the end come from an alternate universe where he was also Hitler's double? And why are they doubles if they're opposite-sex, let alone different races? Am confused.
The rest of it sounds awesome enough to skate by on Rule of Cool.
