    mine says
    and I got from an orc near yew

    Ultima History XIV
    by
    a historian

    this ancient writing was recovered from a cave wall only recently. it translates to, "O cry, O cry, O cry no more."
    Historians are conflicted about its meaning because a lesser persons name was written as a single symbol such as IXIW, or in this case O. we may never know why it was carved there.

    I only request that people dont hit the ancient tombs with a decoder script and reveal ALL its secrets before the good citizens have had a chance at it :D

    Player will continue to find strange books throughout the world for new next few weeks. The Ancient Tomb Quest is more mentally demanding then hitting an "all kill" macro, so it may not be for everyone ;)

    Aw @Keza don't worry, my "script" is nothing more than a substitution cipher REPL!
    Thanks for sharing, @Shiloh! I know this must be difficult for you, but we appreciate and respect the burden you bear, as often does the messenger.

    I wouldn't exactly say the Mystery deepens, but well, another book has turned up on another of my doorsteps.
    New mystery unravels "Why MY doorsteps?"

    Found a book on a ratman today:

    WVVI = L

    Hopfully this will aid others in their quest.

    As I wandered through the Lost Lands last night, I came across what appeared to be some kind of excavation site. I thought little of it until I heard a faint chant coming from within the cave strangely similar to the ancient written language we have been seeing in these books. While I could not make out the words exactly, I did listen and attempt to jot down the sounds as best I could.

    VIIX WVIX VWVX WVIX IWWX IXIW IWIX

    My apologies for not scribbling further. I feared for my life had I stayed too long. I have tried, and failed, to translate this into anything useful. Perhaps, though, others may learn.

    In the meantime, I still seek a copy of this "ancient tomb" book. I cannot ignore this overwhelming sense that it is all, somehow, connected.
