The answer to both questions is one-and-the-same. They consider me to be a harmless crackpot, millions of stellar cycles into senility. They venerate me for my age and experience and wisdom, but discount many of the specifics of what I say as harmless, self-contradictory babble, full of demonstrably untrue assertions and blatantly erroneous facts.
Over the following months, Victor worked with a team of scientists to reverse-engineer one of the pieces of a Mapmaker he gathered from the incursion that took place in Latveria. The Mad Thinker successfully managed to map their entire network. Doom planned to use the Molecule Man, whose energy frequency matched with the beacon's, to oppose whatever was the origin of the incursions and the decay of the multiverse. The Molecule Man took Doom elsewhere, a blank void from where they subsequently traveled backwards through the mists of time and the various planes of reality.
Despite mauling their daemonic foes, the Lizardmen were driven back. The Slann drew ever more upon their nexus of power, using its grounding to steady the unstable energies swirling around them. In desperation, they enchanted the jungle, turning their surroundings into a deathtrap full of carnivorous plants, living quicksand pits and teeming swarms of insects whose stings could crack Dragon scale.[1d]
Thus, the most tumbledown, vine-choked ruin in the depths of the wilderness might be under heavy guard, while jewel-encrusted statues of purest gold were wholly abandoned to the jungle. Their Skink underlings were far less forgiving, however, and would seek to obtain orders to retrieve objects of even the least significance. When denied their wont, the boldest leaders of their kind fabricated excuses to attack invaders, tolerating no others in their domain. When enemies came in greater numbers, as they began to do with more frequency in this new era, it was the job of the Skink patrols to alert the armies of the nearest major outpost or temple-city. None of the invaders could stand before the might of a fully deployed Saurus host, but these larger-scale attacks upon Lustria shook the lethargy from the Slann Mage-Priests. The world was changing again.[1d]
Gain access to the Panzer Collumn East section of the map by completing a portal objective. Enter the Store area and complete the objective which will allow you to enter the command post and Von List's office where you can now enter a void objective leading to Shi No Numa. After surviving 3 full rounds you can exit through a portal, where before returning to Stalingrad, a cutscene with Kortifex will play. Return to the command post, reaching the second floor and interact with the portal which Krafft says he is sealed behind. Activate the portal objectives toward the apartments, and reach the top floor and interact with a stone tome. There will be some dialogue, after which upon re-entering the command post and standing on top of the stairs there will now be a green portal visible. 2b1af7f3a8
