Stage 6 was the back half of last week’s episode, so ask away.

There's a wall a skeleton is pointing at, what are you meant to do there? You can take the stairs up, and go around and you can go left and "backwards" when you come down the stairs

It's meant to be a shortcut of some kind, but how?


You just smash the wall at 7:45 or so. I was too cowardly to make the leap and hit it. :v

The ambiguity is probably a result of Hebrew and other Semitic languages work. Their word roots get developed from sequences of consonants, which then have added vowels and non-essential consonants to make an actual word. Most often said root has three consonants, so the term for this is a triliteral. Thus, "hello" in those languages is ultimately derived from the root s-l-m/*sh-l-m, which refers to safety/well-being or a promise thereof. Compare the Hebrew "shalom", the Arabic "salam", or the Maltese "sliem".

In the case of Gremory/Gemori/etc., the root is probably g-m-r which refers to being abundant and/or overwhelming. (Check gh-miim-ra on this page.) I dunno how that relates to Gremory in particular, but I assume that that's ultimately connected.

*This is why we have the word "shibboleth", because one Tribe of Israel (Gilead) identified the survivors in another defeated tribe (Ephraim) by ordering them to say shibboleth. The Ephraimites didn't have the ʃ consonant (English sh), so they mispronounced it as sibboleth and were killed.

That is all pretty fascinating stuff! 🙂
