Okay I be a good-boy and not lurk anymore innocent.gif

Oh and for the record, if my postings ever seem rather ... random clapping.gif

You can blame the long (damp) Scottish winters/springs/summers/autumns and Monty Python.

(this isn't a pointless post... not at all)

Transcrip, I'm not sure of. But I know that everyone fussed about the handwriting in the game being illegible. blink.gif Might Wabbit have it in his walkthrough?

Don't know for sure, but it's worth a look. wink3.gif

In the empty vault here are pieces of paper that have small snippets from Yeesha written on them. I can't remember what they said. Saved King Kadish. Got power.
I notice all the loot is gone. What would Yeesha need loot for? I guess Kadish got to bring most of it with him. Or did the DRC or Sharper raid it?

Somehow I don't think one of Yeesha's books would work too well for a raider raiding for wealth. wink3.gif An anti-pride protection clause of sorts. laugh.gif

Ceru, no more lurking for you! *hands him a red and blue flashing GoG pin*

BTW, it's most likely my young eyes, but that text was easy for me to read... rolleyes.gif




EDIT: Since I can read it, I'll go transcribe it. Be back in a few. biggrin.gif

3.) The note by the pillar:

4.) The note behind the two money bags.

These are the powers
of gods and I now

Hope this helps. smile.gif Also, none of the fragments match any of the others, so with the two tops and two bottoms, we're short at least 2 pieces, probably more.


Changed format.

I could actually make it at the end of this phrase, that most likely it was "I didn't...". It is a conjecture, of course. blink.gif

The last line here is: "have these powers." (if I'm not mistaken, it is in plural)

Hmm. I'll go look again. But I don't think there was an 's' on the last 'power', and 'I now have these power.' would make sense... blink.gif

Edit: Nope. It's all singular, as I said. smile.gif

Hmm... I can't edit my transcription anymore, maybe a mod could? This:

Whee I got a GOG pin thumbsup.gif

The problem I had is that my good PC is dead so the one I'm playing Uru on dies if you set the texture quality too high, does that effect... affect ... effect... does that change the quality of the notes?

Hmm mighty interesting stuff. Ah we are never short of a cryptic sayings from Miss.Mad a.k.a. the resident Uru demi-god tongue.gif

Alright I'm just gonna barge right ahead with speculation

She's saying she has taken control of some aspect of the ages thats for sure. Now the first imager message seems to make some reference to the "stream"

QUOTE
The water flows where it wills. It seeks its own path uncontrolled, except that it flows downward, always downward... The water flows downward, and there it pools and collects, and finally, once again, it reaches the roots, and the tree begins to grow again.


There should be a group of D'ni Linguists just for translating Yeeshaeese, I tells ya!
So when I first heard that speach I always thought Yeesha was talking about the gathered, it was people who moved about outside of her control seeking their own path, but always drawn (By the call?) to D'ni and when the gathered were gathered (it pools and collects) the Uru (the tree) is reborn.

And what is a stream but a flow of water? The flow of a person's life.
So she can change the flow of a persons life now? A good parlour trick that one

QUOTE
2.) The note in the dark, empt corner:

I think here she is just stating the differnce between what she can do with ages and what Atrus was capable of. He was only able to make (relatively) small differnces whereas Yeesha can change an entire age without it falling apart?

QUOTE
3.) The note by the pillar:

I've saved his life.


She is refering to Kadish here I think (his body no longer lies in the vault). Did she change the flow of his life, of the stream, to save him?

QUOTE
4.) The note behind the two money bags.

These are the powers
of gods and I now

Ooooboy whistling.gif

What I think has happened, and I'm more or less just thinking out loud here, is that Yeesha now has the ability to write different timelines, sort of like going back and changing the ending of a book. So she went back and re-wrote the Kadish Tolesa book somehow to save Kadish confused1.gif

Does that make sence?

Yes, it does. It would also fit with her other freaky linking abilities and time-travel stones.

Am I the only one who think Yeesha's as much of an egolomaniac as Gehn?

I agree that she may be a park, a blanket, some soggy food and an ant's nest short of a picnic.

I mean I like her and all, she seems to have good intentions but then again (like you said) so did Gehn, or at least he thought he did.

Maybe I shall start a new thread speculating on the wonders (and sanity) of Yeesha.

...

Oh hello Yeesha ... ranting.gif what was that... bash.gif please put the linking book down... no don't write any changes ! linking.gif

Hey, finally a reference to Atrus's page teleporting vodoo. I was wondering if that was canon or not.

This also answers the question of how those stones and pages were moving around.

OK, here's a question for you all...

If Yeesha can go back in time and save Kadish's life, essentially completely re-writing D'ni history for the time after him...

... then what's to stop her from going back in time and stopping Veovis and A'Gaeris from destroying D'ni in the first place? shock.gif

OR

... since Garternay would logically be a branch on the Great Tree of Possiblity, could she then figure out how to stabilize Garternay so that the D'ni would never have to leave in the first place? shock.gif

Something to think about....
