Story involvement[edit]

Personal story[edit]


  • The obelisk's four walls contains the same set of runes, except mirrored two and two.
  • The translation for the Orrian syllabary is as follows:
Behold traveler,
the glory and
might that is
Orr. Be it
known that here
in the mighty city
of Arah, the Gods
did walk upon
earth, and teach
mankind the nature of
magic. Be it known
that it is here
that the brilliant
and doomed Malchor
carve their likenesses
into the living stone,
so all may behold
their might. Let the
Kings and Queens of
other lands and lesser
creatures witness our
wonders and cry out in
astonishment and humble
themselves. Beware our
mighry[sic] works. Let this
marker last an eternity.


  • The text is a reference to the sonnet Ozymandias.
