Title: Pottery shards
Post by: Marcel de Giverny on April 16, 2018, 08:17:11 am
I know we've been finding pottery shards, but 1, where we've been finding them and 2, more details about the pottery, I have no idea.  (Has anyone divined on them?)

Reese gave me a bunch, since I can read all the languages, and I figured I should transcribe them.

From April 809:
Rumbletongue: "...needs more drums!  This holy music Falloran seeks will not be meekly sung, but must..."

Ancient Zhek: "...delivery of coffee has been accepted with great cheer the Zhad general's daughter Ilya..."

Silverspeech: "...believes these strange creatures of dream and nightmae may be born from the schism created by..."

Sapsong: "...negotiations for common defense, even if they have not suffered attacks in the Northland as yet.  It is only a matter of time.  On a lighter note, Tharon performed the Song of the Bear for the Zhad queen and she was most amused and requested..."

I believe a number of these were found by the river (panning or fishing or similar). If others were found from different locations, that would be very interesting.

Zecharias had a bunch of these back in the winter, when we had the gala, which I think had also been found in the river. I only have a note about one of them, which was in Silverspeech along with one word in the old language. I wrote down "Bazogondun - the golden plains."

Someone (Bull, I t'ink) had some and gave me one d'at was written in Ancient Zoku.  I t'ink 'e got it from fishing, but not sure.

It said: "send swiftest runners, sharpest archers, and mightiest champions of Jaddora to complete in the Harvest Games to be"

Anyone know what "Jaddora" is?

I believe Falloran was The Most Favored of the Dreaming Goddess, perhaps at the time the Ashensing was created.

The Silverspeech shard sounds like it's talking about Reveries and Malifers, and perhaps the division between the Lady of the Moon and the Singer of Shadows.

From one of Zecharias's trove, which I saw just before de Gala:

Ancienyt Zoku:  "now Prince Kazar [sic] comes with gathered hosts to join his sister in battle against the Singer of Shadows using our new weapon, but Queen Sar"

Sorry for the late reply, but I have a number of pottery shards. As previously stated, these (to my knowledge) have all come from panning:

Thank you for sharing everyone! Does Bull frequent these boards? Could we get his as well?

Marcel, Sem and I would like to try a divination on your Silverspeech pottery shard to see if we can find out more of what it spoke of if you don't mind.

Solana, are those pottery shards all from this gather? Or are they just ones that have been found over time?

Solana, your shards are most interesting. There are quite a few that I would just LOVE to be able to complete.

Ummm.  Could you just double check to make sure d'at t'is is in Ancient Zhek and not Zuko?  Because Princess Ankyan was from de Nort'lands.  And if it is in Zhek, it raises an interesting question.

It could very well be accurate, Chel.  The Princess was practicing writing to a Master Vestosís grandson in Zhekiza.
