The Ancient Language: 5

Fragments of the Song of the Fall of the Old Kingdom:

—-

Humans eventually emerged in the world and were taught by the Somele and learned language and how to be heroes. The Old Kingdom rose led by the best of men. The Song of the Fall of the Old Kingdom is one of the few pieces of their history.

The people of Remas Boral and all of the world believe that the Asom calls those who die heroically to be stars and when Asom finally turns to face Usom those stars will be allowed to fight at her side. The song teaches this lesson as well as the origin of the one we to this day call the Avunravel, the First Necromancer.

The Song only remains in fragments. Modern wizards and singers have attempted to restore the piece but here I will only recount the original fragments in the order wizards agree they probably were sung.

The first fragment introduces the temptations humanity faced even as Serpent and the Somele taught us language and to be heroes.

But the echo never rested, devoted to its jealousy it sent the Uvomelu to meet the humans in caves or in the dark of night. The Somele only taught language, the Uvomel taught power. The human known now as the Necromancer chose power.

Lad Usom usumomada, malnaler re dul modverol, Usom lorosomada da nulu Uvomelu re varomerdas nolo belo va vulu rasolulu ob vulu erunu erobu. Somele sol erabameras da nel asomeler. Uvomelu erabameras da nul rovul. Bel melemada vunravel somada Avunravel roluromara da nul rovul.
