Down in History by Arvata Down in History by Arvata
Just a random idea that's been floating around for a while, not tied to any particular story. Seeing as Splendy resides literally everywhere, naturally there'd end up being various traces of him in the civilizations he's played with. No doubt the smug bastard would be amused stumbling upon them. Why he'd be hanging around in an Egyptian chamber though, I don't know XD But he does enjoy travelling a lot.

Note: I'm in no way as familiar with Egyptian culture or the use of hieroglyphs as I probably should be, so none of these really make sense. Hopefully they won't end up offending anyone who do, this was made purely for fun and for the sake of putting his face somewhere ancient. A few of the glyphs in the front have a slight symbolical connection to him(the lower two stand for "time" and "eternity" respectively, symbolizing how they've noticed he's unaffected by it and always remains unchanged, while the one to the right of his symbol depicts "obscurity/darkness", referring to how little they really know about the strange, dangerous mystery that he's been throughout the eras, not knowing what he is nor what he's after, also it's not visible but the one to his left symbolizes slaughter and torture because well, that's what he does), but that's as far as my "grammar" goes.

I just have to say that I FUCKING LOVE THIS SPLENDOR. He's probably the best creepy version of Splendor I have seen. No lie. c:

I like it :) I love the Egyptian culture and I think it's awesome that he now has some kind of connection with it ;) And of course he finds it 'amusing'.....smug little.... XD

Haha yess, I'm fond of it too even if I don't know much about it ^^, This guy though, I'm sure he wanders historical places like that as casually as we'd take a stroll outside. Finding himself in the records is just a bonus XD Thanks!

I just had a funny thought. That is: I would not want to be the one who discovers an Egyptian tomb and opens it up to find this guy casually wandering around in it O_O'

Hahaha true XD I did actually play with the idea of drawing a pair of captured/knocked out archeologists in the background that just so happened to encounter him there. Would've been a fun add-on, I'm sure he'd be thrilled by the extra company.

In times like these he'd be inclined to stand and reminisce a bit about the good ol' times, even better if there's someone there to listen. If you play your cards right, maybe he's so distracted by himself you'd be able to come out of it alive XD

Done! I would totally lend an ear to his reminiscing, especially if it was about him in the Egyptian period :D Then I would just slip silently out and be on my way.....
Psh! Who am I kidding I would probably get so lost in the incredibleness of his story that I would just sit there the entire time. Then he'd be like:
"And that is my story, child....okay, time for you to go now...." Devilish 
And I'd be like:
"Wait, what?!" :o (Eek)
