Now that imgur is allowed on the forums I think it's a good idea to add pictures to this thread. -
I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

Menaphite writing:

Aquamancer's translated it on Twitter if you're curious about what it says.

Thanks! I'm not going to check it out unless Aquamancer posts here (which I thought he would after he told me about it), but I have managed to work out that the text under 'Menaphos' on the header says "the golden city"

What I'm curious about though is - where was all this text in game we were supposed to work out? Menaphite in game seems to be almost all heiroglyph-based. What is that image from?


lemme see if I can work it out just from 'golden city'
THE LEGEND OF THE GOLDEN PATH
THE GOLDEN CITY OF MENAPHOS STANDS TODAY AS IT
HAS FOR GENERATIONS: RESPLENDENT, AFFLUENT
AND PROSPEROUS.
BUT BENEATH THE SURFACE LIES CORRUPTION, DECAY
AND DESTRUCTION. THE PHAROAH GROWS RICHER,
WHILE THE POOR OF NEARBY SOPHANEM ROT IN
DITCHES. MENAPHOS'S FOUR DISTRICTS ARE RULED
BY FOUR LEADERS - A COMMANDER, ADMIRAL, WORKER, AND
GRAND VIZIER - EACH IN SOME WAY COMPLICIT IN
THE CITI'S DESOLATION


boy howdy, just give you a few letters and you can work out the rest. Where was this text in game all this time?


The image is from a link they shared during the stream, I think it's become a subpage for the Menaphos site now. As for the writing, Aquamancer found some on the sundials (meaningless), Apmeken and Scabaras' tombs (just initials for the gods I believe), and the word "War" is written between the pictures of Amascut and Icthlarin.
