This island is more than I could have hoped for. Of course, these islanders are absolutely insane, and those poor people from the Endurance... So tragic. But honestly, it adds to the drama! Not only is this the mythical land of Yamatai, but the shipwrecks... and the modern day cultists. It warrants at least two documentaries. Maybe even a series!
Good lord, this place is going to ignite the world's imagination! And I'm going to be right in the center of it all. Such a huge relief... all my chips were on this one number. I just need to be careful now. This situation could spin out of control on a dime. Once I have this Mathias fellow's ear, I can convince him that there's much to gain in cooperating.
I mean, he can't honestly believe the things he preaches to these men, right? They're just lost and confused. I'll help to bring them all back to civilization. The sponsors are going to line up fro this exclusive! The story is huge!
