Drakkerkin Kethsi Chen. Kethsi Vek. Kalist Fia Necrosyrtes. Lith Roake Pthen Kethsi. Askanth Kuln Kethsi. Kalist Lith. Kerapac Vek.

Translated with what we know, we get:

The Dragonkin razed Kethsi. Kethsi is a failure. Kalist protected from the Necrosyrtes. A superior portal was opened to Kethsi. Askanth Kuln Kethsi. Kalist is superior. Kerapac is a failure.

This seems to refer to the events in Forcae's journal. In that case, we can infer what a number of the unknown words mean:

The Dragonkin razed Kethsi. Kethsi is a failure. My lab was protected from the Necrosyrtes. A superior portal was opened to Kethsi. Askanth Kuln Kethsi. New lab is superior. Kerapac is a failure.

I suspect Askanth Kuln refers to Forcae's construction of a Forge on Mount Firewake. I also suspect that, 'Kerapac Vek,' is meant to mean, 'Kerapac is a fool,' as we see that sentence in Forcae's journal. So some Dragonkin words may have secondary meanings.

This final mural depicts rubble...destruction...I can't quite make it out. There's only a few words I can still read here: "Vek... Skek... Chen... Ulthven... Fia..."

Vek translates to "failure", Skek hypothetical means "dead/sick/changed" Chen means "razed/destroyed," Ulthven is the name of the fortress itself, and Fia means "safe/protected from." So the last sentence translates to "The failed dead are destroyed, Ulthven is safe."


I think your translation here is a bit off since we are missing some words. Judging by the state of Ulthven, I'm thinking the following is more likely:

We failed to stop the dead. We razed Ulthven. We are safe for now.

That being said, I'm not sure that Roake Pthen means open portal (given that Forcae doesn't make note of opening a portal to Kethsi, let alone one that would be considered superior for some reason).

I'm thinking it might mean: experiment + a modifier. That way, the Firewake mural would say something along the lines of:

A superior *something* experimented on Kethsi.

Referring to the development of the rune dragons.

While the Ulthven mural would say:

Kranon *something something* experiment.

In which case, the 'Roakin' would be, 'the experimented on Dragonkin.'

I also don't think that Kranon is the Dragonkin attacking the strange Dragonkin in the murals. He was the only dragonkin to have been explicitly grabbed in the murals, so I think Kranon was the one leading/sending the Roakin in their attack.

Isn't Kalist = Catalyst? Aka The Stone of Jas?


That was my initial reaction as well, but it didn't seem right and wasn't in the primer.

Assuming that Kalist does mean the catalyst we get:

The Dragonkin razed Kethsi. Kethsi fell. The Catalyst was saved from the Necrosyrtes. A superior portal was opened on Kethsi (the world gate maybe?). Askanth Kiln Kethsi. The Catalyst is superior. Kerapac is a failure.

Those last 2 sentences really don't seem to make sense though. Maybe Askanth Kiln Kethsi is supposed to mean the stone was stolen while being brought back from Kethsi (by Zamorak in all likelihood) and Kerapac was in charge of that. Though I still don't get the point of saying the Catalyst is superior in the middle of that (maybe it made Zamorak strong enough to fend them off, though that contradicts what happened when the Kethsians used it against the kin).

The weird bit though would then be the adamant dragon mural as that would then seem to translate to:

Dragons combined with steel. They are a failure. Kerapac Vertentis (rejects?) the steel dragons. Failure. Forcae is the Catalyst. Forcae is superior to the Catalyst. Forcae is superior to a king/emperor.

As such, I think Kalist might just mean 'Scientist/place of science (lab).' That way, the adamant dragon mural inscription makes a lot more sense, and the rune dragon mural can still make sense as Forcae inscribing the events leading to his move to Kethsi.
