All I need to know I learned from Edgar Allan Poe

Yes, I had a feeling that re-reading The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym was key to completing my game/entry, but as I discovered yesterday morning... I was actually underestimating the importance of it!
In fact, casual mention by Poe lead me to discover the existence of monsieur Kerguelen. Starting from there, everything easily fell into place like a deliberate, carefully crafted puzzle the wacky side of History had a lot of fun leaving for me to solve.
Now I just need to write a set of Omens (random encounter cards of a sort) before I can submit the draft and begin playtesting it.
