Unlike the divine healer card, this one spoke to me and I had a much easier time with it. Here is my entry Virgil Skeleton Assassin, I now have no problem spelling assassin.

I'm here reading because this one is sort of speaking to me but I haven't been able to get started with the adventure, and I'm having difficulty with the beginning of my story. lol

Some cards are tough, I wonder what it says about me that I struggled with the Divine Healer card, but had no problem with the Skeleton assassin. It will come and you still have time for like me and several others last week, almost late entries.

Something started to come but I didn't have the time to edit it. I did have fun with the research and still feel like I learned something. I might finish the story and post it just for me and whoever wants to read it.

I can't wait until this Friday to find out what will be next and where the research will take me.

Wooow i like much! The skeleton assassin! :) cool

Thank you for explaining in a fairly simple way a very complex topic a story that is thought of fiction but sometimes the reality exceeds the limits my respects

I did the story but in my language (Spanish), I tried to pass it to English but it was very difficult for me. I think that using the translator one could understand at least the thread of the story, I would like that despite being in another language be taken into account.
