This week, the Lootian Department of History and Natural Sciences revealed one more chapter of the Book of Talos. The fifth installment of the Book of Talos presents how the hero gets his first labor on his path to understanding his destiny. It was revealed to him by the Sokwe, mysterious creatures he met on the island.
The Fifth Installment Translation
“Talos explained how he was there to figure out his destiny and train, even not knowing what that meant at the time. The Sokwe stopped the conversation, as they had forgotten to lead with their names, getting intrigued by the talk. ‘We are known as Kondo, Condo, and Jondo, each saying their names in order. We are the elders of Thalassa, the caretakers of nature, and the forsaken of the Sokwe, given the burden of exceeding longevity. We are the last of our tribe, and our knowledge dies with us. This seems like a good place to end the conversation. Please leave our house,’ they said. So, Talos left to head back to the Skapelse, except just outside their home, he gathered some leaves and bedding material for the night. This was where he would stay until the morning to ensure he did not miss them again.
1:1-2-iv Talos’ First Task (8,980 LCE)
The following day came, and the Sokwe came out, moving right past Talos without saying a word. Seeing this, he decided to wait there for their return. Talos waited for three sets of three days, only leaving to get water and eat once a day. Then he returned right back to his spot, each day by which they would just walk. Each day watch the sunrise and fall at the world’s edge. Sitting there meditating, waiting, and contemplating. Then Kondo sat right in front of him, without saying a word joining his meditation. Finally, after the entire day in silence, Kondo asked Talos to join him inside their home. The Sokwe were all sitting around a fire in a meditative position, with a fourth spot meant for Talos. He sat there quietly and observantly.”
The Lootian Department of History and Natural Sciences is hard at work to continue translating and discovering the historical references that are a part of this beautiful and pristine world.
