Many of us thought that learning the pronouncation of a long lost language would be impossible for quite some time. But then we discovered the Vaskar ruins in the middle of the Volker Desert. Our first explorers of that ruins were quite shocked when the walls started talking to them. The ancient language of the Selefer , Ethonic , was already mostly deciphered for quite some time. The current alphabet of many of the current languages of Avak'am is the same as the one used by the Selefer. Given the similarities with the languages of the region in the current time, it was not an impossible undertaking. However, nobody knew how the language was pronounced. This all changed when an expedition of the Keepers found the Vaskar ruins.
DiscoveryThe Vaskar ruins were discovered in 1104 AE by a group of explorers send by the Keepers. The Keepers themselves have quite an extensive amount of historic records available in their great library in Adroon. They often use as a guide to make assumptions about possible ruin locations. By using the records describing a large religious complex the explorers were able to find the Vaskar Ruins after many years of searching.
MuralsThe religious complex seemed very intact and many of the murals even had their writing and sometimes even colors intact. To the suprise of the explorers the writing on the wall lit up after touching the mural. Shortly after a Selefer voice could be heard through the empty halls. Eventually the explorers figured out that the voice was reading the writing of the murals and they quickly send word to get a larger group to the ruins. After some extensive research the phonetics of the Ethonic language were finally deciphered.
Once our god ruled from the sun Controlling its fire and bringing life But the evil gods grew jealous and removed him from the celestial throne Now he wanders across the realms of fire waiting for revenge He looked at Niorath and chose the Selefer as his eternal champions All who follow the path he creates will join him in his realm A realm of fire A realm of light A realm for the strong Devote yourself and join with fire For it will never hurt When fire comes only the Selefer will not burn They are one, they are true, they are children of the sun So prepare yourself Open the gates with the celestial keys Go through to join Athos in his realm We will persevere We will win We will reconquer the sun
