I follow this series mainly because I have a Filipina wife. That said, I often find the tales confusing and have no idea what they are about. From the title I thought this might have something to do with the lost colony of Roanoke, but if it did I missed it.
A bit of unsolicited advice would be to do away with all the parentheses and brackets and let the story speak for itself. You don't need to translate Tagalog slang if you use it in the right context. Otherwise it only distracts from the immediate story and adds to the difficulty of understanding.
