The researchers and scholars at the Lootian Department of History and Natural Sciences are working on translating the fifth part of the Tale of Mulgarath. Below is an excerpt of what was translated to date.
As Mulgarath traveled through the harsh, unforgiving landscape, he was struck by the contrast between the viciousness of the world and the kindness he had received from the horned man Luciyal. He learned that the dwarves were no friend to him.
The Start of Hatred
His journey took him to the western end of Mt. Hercules, where he discovered the dwarves’ chamber, which seemed to capture the essence of the sun through some technological magic. However, Mulgarath’s encounter with the dwarves was far from friendly. Two of them, Malnus and Therrigg Longstone, confronted him, suspecting he did not belong in their domain.
“Hello, traveler,” said Malnus. “Are you lost? This is a place for dwarves, not someone like you, with your blackened stare and tall stature. I don’t think you belong here.”
Therrigg added, “Your dark gaze tells us that you have a menacing purpose for being here and have been lurking in these mountains for several days. Yes, we’ve been watching you. What are you up to?”
Mulgarath replied, “I’ve just left my home to see what the world offers. The first dwarves I met were small and aggressive. Why do you stand in my way? I demand you move out of my way and let me pass.”Mulgarath was angry at being confronted and determined to continue his journey.
At that moment, Mulgarath began down the Path of Hatred, learning firsthand the treachery and disgust that lurked in the world.
The Lootian Department of History and Natural Sciences researchers are dedicated to uncovering the rich history and cultural references that make this fantastical realm so unique and enduring.
