    Cool stuff.

    After a quick search I came across this stuff for the new game:

    shadow-of-tomb-raider-path-of-stars-puzzle.jpg

    Apparently its a game puzzle? I don't know what the puzzle is for, but those are straight up Mayan glyphs. If I had to guess they are probably the date of the game's release or some other message.

    Really cool though; obviously the game designers did their research! :D:bookworm:

    Two more cool pictures I came across:

    Been there, that is Uxmal, pyramid of the magician! I really like the face at the entrance to the upper temple:

    Edit: Although thanks to your picture, I had no clue there was another entrance to the temple even higher than the monster mouth entrance! That isn't even visible from the ground level!

    I happened across some pictures of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon in my pinterest feed, and noticed that they looked suspiciously like the work of the Old Ones... :cyclops:

    Looks an awful lot like Mayan Pyramids in general shape!

    Cool terrain piece. You could definitely adapt the idea for a Mayan temple pyramid

    I had nothing else to do but search for reading material when helping my wife study the other day. Found it tucked away on the website
