Gar, can't you just tell us what the poem means?

All will be made clear when the time is right.  Until then, only truly bearded dwarves will have the sacred knowledge.

Wait cancel that last post just finished. yay!!!

Ok to make myself feel like I didn't waste my life can I have a guy that is named Johann Schmidt. I want him to scheme, if possible I want him to be the queens son or someone that looks up to the queen and that wants to carry one the legacy of cleansing the grained souls with the etched marks of screams... my attempt at emo poetry. YAY if finished! I'm gonna go get wicked high and its 1 am.

Yeah Ill make you the eldest son of the Dungeon Mistress and the Philosopher.  You have no legitimacy, but you could claim that because all of Jewlettarette's kids are half-pagans, that they are unfit to rule.  Since you are full-blooded noble and are the oldest son of a Dungeon Master, you maybe could claim some right to rule.  Its definitely room for plotting and scheming, and if you're loyal to the Queen then she may use you against Airag and his brothers if need be.

Even all that doesn't necessarily mean you'll live all that long.

Oh crap....and I had a word wrong.  I edited the post.

Dunem should have been Dunan.  Whatever dwarf wrote this poem must've been drunk.

But they never would have given up either. And compared to sitting around in this prison for the rest of my life? Losing is fun.

Can you confirm that nekal is not, in fact, "r-kal"?
And that Azkak is not Askak?
And that Dwarf is actually a word, or should it just be dwarf?

Decline, in English, also means to refuse or say no. It could be saying do not take the crystal tube.

Yeah, but we're not being offered the crystal tube, so that meaning of decline doesn't really apply.

Well, it could mean 'don't take the crystal tube' as in 'don't go down the crystal tube', or 'don't follow the crystal tube'.

Actually, that seems more likely than saying 'decline' as in 'to go down', since it isn't often it's used as anything but a way of refusing something politely.

But then, life was also easier when I was running around here pretending to be a man, so I guess I should just "man up" and get back to work.

Yeah Dwarf just means Dwarf.  Oddly enough, dwarves dont have a word for dwarf in dwarvish.  So I just assumed they call themsleves dwarves, and everyone else got their word for dwarves from the dwarves.

Okay and on third glance, I fucked up again.  I blame it on my bad eyesight from staring at computer screens all day.  But yeah, lower case a's and o's look a lot a like in DF, and I was using the game to search for words (which was dumb, I shouldve used the file...lol).

Anyways, Azkak should be Ozkak, and Nekal should be Nekol.

Carry the north winds, friend?
The north wind carries... something, but what is it....
The stick of hell leads the way? The devil's trident?
Anyone else got any ideas?
