Reference: "Thus one's life turns to riches"

Heather finds out why it's true that you shouldn't talk to strangers. Or look in mirrors, quite honestly.

Reference: "Thus one's life turns to riches"

Post by Burning Man »

Back in 2006, member Jedah made this observation about the memo that you find in the Hilltop Center:
Jedah wrote:"Thus one's life turns to riches"
The memo on the wall by the vending machine in the Nightmare Hilltop Center is perhaps a reference to Hank in Session 9.

"Thus one's life turns to riches:

What was a bag of silver coins is
now the number in a book.

Yet fate hath no price...
Ah, but do people know this?"

Hank found all those coins in the wall and his life turned to riches. But fate has no price -- the coins are what caused his fate.
I thought this was clever if true.

Though, recently I found a snippet in the "Lost Memories" guidebook that suggest this is a reference to Judah's betrayal of Jesus and how Judah received 30 silver pieces as payment. If you observe the pile of coins, it kind of looks like there could be around 30: 24-25 are visible and the remaining could be under the pile. Otherwise, the memo and the puzzle seem localized. Except for Heather commenting that she won't take anymore because she's no thief even if she sometimes acts like one, it doesn't seem to have any further significance to the story.
