Exploring Château Guillard
Hello everybody! Local french baguette here to help you with easter eggs found in the Château Guillard map on PTR!
[screencaps are not mine as my settings are as low as can be, if you wish to be credited, feel free to ask!]
What we know as a basis is that this Château belonged to her family, as stated in the last Dev video.
Maman and Papa are obviously fucking loaded. Or were. Seeing as the château is empty as can be, one can assume that they’re long gone…
First off is Widowmaker’s laptop. The message on the screen is the following:
Bonjour Madame Guillard,
Nous vous confirmons par ce message qu’une limousine vous attendra à l’aéroport Nice Côte d’Azur à 21h30.
Le trajet entre Nice et Monaco devrait durer environ trente minutes.
Vous pouvez évidemment modifier cette réservation à votre convenance.
Nous sommes à votre entière disposition pour toute autre demande.
Which translates to:
Hello Madame Guillard,
We confirm by this message that a limousine will await your arrival at the Nice - Côte d'Azur airport at 9:30 PM.
The drive between Nice and Monaco should take about thirty minutes.
You can, of course, change this booking at your convenience.
We remain entirely at your service if you have any other requests.
(please note the awkward wording is from me literally translating pompous french formalities)
From this we can guess a few things:
• This e-mail is from before the section of the Masquerade comic set in Monaco.
• Widowmaker has returned to using her maiden name, Guillard.
Next up: Boarding pass!
I’m intrigued by the name Danielle. Possibly a cover-up name since using Amélie might be too obvious? Who knows.
Assuming this is her boarding pass, as it would add up to the statements about Masquerade above, it gives us an idea where in France the Château would be.
The closest airport is CDG, which is the code for the Paris - Charles de Gaulle airport. It leaves me to guess that the Château is located in the Parisian region rather than in Savoie, where Annecy is, as many in the French OW community had assumed… Another speculation was the Loire region, which is notable for it’s grandiose renaissance-era castles and whatnot.
Here’s an annotated map to help you guys visualize o/
I’m not sure what else I can offer for now! I was told there was a journal in the cellar but I don’t have a good enough screencap to make out and translate what could be written, so if anybody else wants to provide one, I’d gladly help!
Feel free to ask questions if you have any! My askbox is open for that!
