Hush Little One Lullaby
The Hush Little One Lullaby is a popular lullaby across Fillimet, although the words vary according to cultural priorities and preferences. Most versions tend to use a similar melody, although several add larger variations to the melody to better accentuate the words or tone of the song. Historians have been unable to identify the original version of the song. Multiple historical records at the Fillimet Magical Archives carry a similar cadence and pattern, leading some to hypothesize that the original song predates recorded history.
Growing so sweetly right here with me
Harvests will come, and my time will too
You'll carry my memory onward with you
Well fed and warm, and safe from the damp
Sleeping at peace beneath the starlight
As we travel onward to our hunting camp
Silent and fierce, just as you were taught
Dream of your might and the creatures you'll maul
As we strengthen defences against the onslaught
My love will hold you, safe from all harms
Please dry your tears and breathe slow and deep
And snuggle in closer as we fall asleep
SoulfireDuring his time with Xaladreth, Paitr Goldaming discovered that even the Soulfire have a variation of the song, leading many scholars to wonder at its true age and origin. Xaladreth did admit that the song itself was not draconic but that the Soulfire had discovered it while gathering knowledge from the other races and adopted the tradition for themselves. Paitr was unable to learn their source of the song. As Feral Dragons do not have vocal chords and communicate entirely by telepathy reducing their language to mere words is a challenging endeavor, especially since their young are not even taught words until they master the other nuances of communication. Paitr's rough translation of his experiences receiving the Soulfire lullaby is provided below. He found it quite soothing himself, although admitted this was likely due in part to his own shared values with the Soulfire, particularly the quest for knowledge.
<A strong sense of accomplishment after finishing a task that required a lot of effort>
<A confident but detached (not arrogant) feeling of knowing everything and being right>
<A feeling of belonging and shared community> <A sense of truly knowing those around you also know everything>
The Andovians thrive throughout the city states of the Andisol Valley. They believe that each passing generation lends its strengths and legacies to the next generation, a circle of life which mirrors that of the plants in their fertile farming holdings.
Now living in peace, generations of defending against the Frost Fae have taught the Arcturians the values of strength and self-defense.
