The '''Latin Paper''' can be found in [[Cave 1 - Dead Cave]] near the [[sinkhole]] entrance.
It is written in Latin and presents a gray picture of the [[Sinkhole|Cenote]]. It seems to be referencing the [[Mutant Baby|mutant babies]] and [[Virginia]]. A rough translation can be found below. It appears, from this document, that the mutants predate [[Sahara]]'s creation of the [[Sahara Laboratory|research lab]], and that perhaps Sahara knew the side effects of the [[obelisk]] in advance.
 
   
  +
The contents of the paper is written in graphite, and include a drawing of a [[crucifix]], notes in Latin, and a top-down drawing of the sinkhole. As per the rough translations found below, the notes seem to suggest [[Christian Missionaries]] attempted to fend off [[Virginia]] and [[mutant babies|mutant baby]] [[Creepy Mutant|creepy mutants]] with crosses and traps, to not avail.
Regardless, the priests attempted to use their [[Crucifix|crosses]] on the [[mutants]], as well as [[Trap|traps]], to no avail.

As such, the paper also suggests that the [[mutant|mutants]] and the sinkhole predate [[Sahara Therapeutics|Sahara Therapeutics']] activities on the Peninsula.
It also appears that the [[Virginia Sketch]] was created by the same person, though it is impossible to tell for certain. Each was sketched on paper seemingly with graphite, and both seem to belong to the [[Christian Missionaries]], lending credence to the theory.

The Latin Paper is a story item which contains lore about the Peninsula.

Gameplay

The Latin Paper can be found in Cave 1 - Dead Cave near the sinkhole entrance.

The contents of the paper is written in graphite, and include a drawing of a crucifix, notes in Latin, and a top-down drawing of the sinkhole. As per the rough translations found below, the notes seem to suggest Christian Missionaries attempted to fend off Virginia and mutant baby creepy mutants with crosses and traps, to not avail.

As such, the paper also suggests that the mutants and the sinkhole predate Sahara Therapeutics' activities on the Peninsula.

The paper may be related to the Virginia Sketch as both are sketched on paper with graphite, and both seem to belong to the Christian Missionaries, lending credence to the theory.
