The First Script
My goal was to discover the types of metals that usually go with a vein of tafubab. So I started digging in the cliff, in an area that I knew contained a lot of tafubab, I started digging for ore. I found a lot of taf that seemed to contain moto'af and in my mind I was already on my way home to study them, when my hand hit something within the taf.This was when Aro found the First Script; it was the oldest dated scripture that used the magmer script - even though in a less advanced form. The date on the plate reads "82nd of Winter, 192".
It was marble, no question. But it was also a pretty tafrur piece of marble. That was why I stopped to set it free in the first place.
ContentAfter a long period of deciphering, the team of geologists around Aro found out, that the first script contained a detailed description of how different materials looked and smelt, and what effect they had on the magmer body. Even without the help of a medic, the team soon realized, that the effects were vastly exaggerated. But - with the help of a medic - they also realized, that the effects that were described could indeed be created by a - much larger portion - of the described materials.
The script describes the effects of kurt, tafubab, dataf, multiple metals, pumice, obsidian, multiple semiprecious stones and so on.
The First Script is the scientifically most significant piece of rock there is in the whole Fire Valley, and as such the most significant piece over all. Not only does it show that there was an advanced civilization before the year 200, it also shows that the species back then probably was more sensible than the magmer, and they used marble as a main material.
When this fact became known, many magmer in Kot started to have more open eyes for marble in general, since they always hope for it to be some kind of old scripture.
