    Default Masquerade

    In what way(s) do folks think TCWAF is inspired by Masquarade?

    Masquerade used line drawing to point at border text. Other details create a layer of puzzling as foreground enjoyment. In TCWAF, i feel the "find the stolen objects" is also for foreground enjoyment. The business of drawing lines to form some sort of master puzzle seems possible. In Masquerade it was protracting a line from eye to finger or toe. Here I wonder ifmits eye through "hand" or "foot"? On the 13th floor the text describes a pale blue vase, mask, four headed dragon, and glittering gem. Drawing a line from center of those four objects protracts nicely to the "handle" of the wall safe. Maybe this method might lead to similar themed discoveries in other parts of the building. Maybe the word "handle" is our first glyph in a master rebus...
