Песни Менестреля


Now you all know the bards and their songs…

© Blind Guardian


Caladriel was an ancient crone,
Karmic beings brought her down!
A phial of light she created,
but once she did not use it...
In a dark room she dissipated.

В пещере с гремлинами можно найти артефакт – Фиал Каладриэли, который освещает местность, используя ваши рр.

Ancient dwarfs
often come in halves.
Babbling they do,
Ladies they woo,
Useless they are,
Ignorants receive a scar.

Просто прикол. Особенно весело про “ladies they woo”:)

Hotzenplotz a bandit is,
Many a woman he did kiss,
His guards are very strong,
so don't make anything wrong.

Хотценплотц живёт в Лавенилотехле, даёт пару квестов и сам является объектом квеста шерифа. Может быть опасен для “маленьких” персонажей, так как юзает яд.

Floors without any friction
are no longer a thing of fiction.
To cope with them you need a lot of thrust,
on this one you can trust.

Для того, чтобы двигаться по 49 уровне подземелий Хаоса надо кидать вещи в противоположную от желаемой. Типа законы физики:)

I'm so lazy,
My knowledge's hazy,
My sounds are loud,
but rarely I shout.
My lyrics are coarse,
I never owned a horse.
My songs I'm improvising,
I use them for advising.
Listen with care,
and well you will fare.

Автобиография певца. Первая строчка мне напомнила песню Sex Pistols “Seventeen”:)

Chaos piranhas really bite.
All are amazed at their might.
Yrrigs knew more about this.
He manages to survive the fish.

Only fools
would try to build without tools
A bridge sturdy and strong
With good tools you can't go wrong

Обе о Могиле Высоких Королей. Для того, чтобы пересечь озеро, надо либо построить мост, либо заморозить воду. Можно ещё пройти напролом, но помни, что пираньи “снимают” за ход ~250-300 хитов. Кольцо Высоких Королей нужно, чтобы пройти мимо Вечного Стража.

In a very hot tower
your points in life get lower
Resisting fire not once but twice
Would be very wise

Не так уж и мудро. Тройной резист, а тем более иммунитет гооораздо мудрее:)

I am a baby dragon
My mother is bigger than a wagon
Still she lives in a place on watery ground
That I have never found.

Ищи пещеру с мамашкой Блупа в реке.

A small cave for beginners
The big ones are for winners
Do it the other way around
And strange monsters will be found.

В пещере к Северо-Западу от Терриньо монстры крутеют с уровнем персонажа. Опасное местечко, хотя и жутко прибыльное в плане экспы и weapon marks.

The Banshee sings a strangely compelling song,
No one can listen to it for long.
You better beware
And take care.
Beware is what you need,
Understand this verb and take heed.

Для того, чтобы не сдохнуть сразу же, надо заткнуть уши воском (use) или держать в руках wedding ring.

Chaos powers mighty and dangerous
strive to alter all of us.
Corrupting effects transform thee
faster than you would like that to be.
Although useful they might seem
they just will bring a sorrow stream.

Коррупты – дрянь, что бы не говорил менестрель!!!!:)

The Hero Rolf, of Dwarven Kind,
A Pillar of his Society --
He had an Axe, the Cutting Kind,
Which Caused Orcs Great Anxiety.
What Became of Rolf the Mighty?
Does Yet the World he Wander?
The Elders Wise and Mystics Flighty
Even they must Wonder...

Рольф исчез, зато оставил парочку “сувениров” - щит и топор. Топор можно получить у дварфа-мистика, а щит даёт старейшина за выполнение 4-го квеста, если ты lawful и обладаешь высокой харизмой и аппиренсом.

Once a tiny cavern,
was a monument built by the powers of Law.
Now it's strangely distorted,
by the powers of Chaos it's meaning thwarted.
In the depths of infinity
it holds the first part of the trinity,
which, once assembled and refitted,
will make it permitted
if forceful enough yourself ye deem!

На ~67 уровне Бесконечных Пещер живет МаЛаКаЙ, охраняющий(ая – пол варьируется) Скипетр Хаоса, необходимый для становления *обычным* Богом Хаоса. Крутой мужик (тёткаJ ) – много раз атакует и юзает яд!

The Lord of the Cats is a touchy fellow,
His teeth are sharp and his eyes are yellow.
All kinds of cats he calls his subjects,
Small ones, big ones, all he'll protect.
If kind ye be to cats, I sing,
Talk from him his precious ring!

Если не убивал разнообразных котов (f), то примерно на ~37 уровне Хаос Данжона котячий пахан наградит вас кольцом, если да – то будь готов обороняться.

Rehetep was a long-lived guy,
But his skin got cracked before his eyes.
He would not die,
And he would not quit,
But his skin just wouldn't stay well-fit.
He wrapped it up in rags at first,
But after a while the rags all burst.
Now to keep his body in,
He needs to borrow someone else's skin!

Рехетеп тусует в пирамиде. Чтоб туда попасть, уровень перса должен вписываться в интервал: 13<уровень<16.

In the forest deep,
all living beings weep
for fairies cruel and fast
won't let you last.
Search with care
and fast like lightning you might fare!

Надо search’ить в лесу за речкой, чтобы найти дерево квиклингов. А чтобы туда влезть, надо иметь два коррупта (extrmemely thin&nimble и very light). Вес рюкзака не должен превышать 150 камней.

The trinity is very tough to find
in case you mind.
three parts you will need,
lots of blood you will shed.
Once all are collected,
once your deceitful fame is erected,
once in servitude you seem to be joining,
once chaos powers the word "friend" are coining,
you'll enter the gate...
Quickly - before it's too late!

Чтобы стать Богом Хаоса, надо иметь троицу Хаоса: Medal of Chaos (даёт old crone в High Mountain Village), Crown of Chaos (выпадает из Кериакса) и Скипетр (смотри выше) или Trident of the Red Rooster (Хелавастер). Входить в ворота надо extremely corrupted.

Dungeons are Grimy
Blobs are Slimy
When dealing with Puddles
Missiles are Subtle.

Всякие ooz’ы корродят вещи и их надо быть артефактами, руками или стрелами (как советует менестрель)

Heaven help you in the tower of hell,
The elements will surely sound your death-knell,
If walking on fire still shrouds you in pain,
You might just need some more of the same...

Чтобы получить резист 3 уровня надо сожрать древнего огненного дракона.

Felines have a shiny fur.
When you feed them, they will purr.
True cat-lovers never harm them,
some musicians try to charm them.
For all others, let me warn them:
As soon as felines meet disaster
their energy rejoins their master.

Чем больше убито кошек, тем круче Cat Lord.

A drakelings scales may be crimson red
if a creature of fire for dinner he had
he may wear tough scales and two rings to boot
he may have the armour and all of the loot
but fire is still a hazard to him
cause a drakeling will start to burn from within.

He will become fast, even fast as the light
his foes may run screaming at this unearthly sight
as quicklings so fast, he may just become
but the hazard of fire will never be gone
cause the speed makes him dizzy and dazy and that
and no ring and no scales will save him from that

So the tower of fire is a dangerous thing
and you should really listen to the sound of my string
for a drakeling has really a hard time in there
without healing and stuff he won't get anywhere
So a potion or herb might be a good boon,
but if you enter without them - you are just a loon!

В Башне Вечного Пламени дрейклинги, даже если есть иммунитет, теряют по хиту за ход. А их скорость повышается до 400

An age ago, there lived a king, most pious and benevolent,
Who from his god received a ring to shield him from the elements.
This king, he had a brother true, a fighter lion-hearted,
Who sought to rout all Chaos through the Gate from whence it started.
He purged the evil from the land, his blade once never faltered,
And only by his god's own hand was his adventure halted.
"O fighter brave," his god did say, "though noble is your mission,
Yet centuries must slip away before it finds completion.
The Balance leans too much to Law, and I must now amend it;
Let Chaos have its time on Earth ere back to hell you send it.
But watch this stair eternally, and wait for Heaven's message,
To show the mighty champion who's earned the right of passage.
For only one you'll step aside and cease your faithful vigil:
The one who wears your brother's ring emblazed with Heaven's sigil."

Намёк на вечного стража. Чтобы пройти дальше, надо иметь Кольцо Высоких Королей (см выше)


Болтовня деревенского дурачка

Convenience does not mean ease of use!
Remember: wherever you go, there you are!

Какая философская мысль!:)

…the right stuff that is.
Healers are strange people -- they enjoy it if you throw stuff at weak ones...

Лечить больных монстров – это один из способов удовлетворить Джарода

The tiny island is quite magical... isn't that tragical?

РР восстанавливаются быстрее, когда стоишь на центральном островке в Терриньо

Search the garden, harvest the treasures and take some measures.
Age is power, fulfillment is a shower.
Wait till the dawn of time and yer problems will be solved.
Swing the anvil and smash the unyielding.
Wild my babbling might be, mild my being might be...
The warning I was... now the fool I am. Heat the warning.
The avatar I was... now the fool I am. Heed the warning.

Вряд ли похоже на правду:)

Discover the beginning and you will have found the end.
Sting the bee and rewarded will be thee.
Baba's my mother, Stalker my father and I'm the eternal wanderer.

Скорее вечный пьяница:)

Didst ye ever eat a hag? Try it, it's very fulfilling!

Точно дурак! Это только проклинает

A lord might come, he will kill some, others he will beat and that will be neat.
Follow the course, ride the horse, eat the bean and feel pretty lean.
Search the bard and hit him hard!

Life's a boon and ye art a goon!
