Don’t suppose you’d be willing to say what the language is at least?
Not sure it is a laugae, but if it is a real laugae it porbaby either babalonian, mesopitan, or sandskirt. If it is a fantasy laugae, my guess would be atlantian.
What i want to know is which script or combination of scripts you used?
Have defective spelling region of brain;
It’s not Akkadian, which rules out Babylonian and Mesopotamian. Gonna have to rule out Sandskirt as well, as the majority of characters in Sandskirt have tops, like the letter T.
Some of the characters like ワ or ー almost look Japanese to me, but there’s plenty of others that don’t have that same look.
No luck with google translate or various other “recognize this symbol by drawing it” type of programs that I tried.
It looks like hebrew letters with silly scribbles mixed in to me
no i can sorta read hebrew this aint it, its wing dings
It’s called the Alphabet of the Magi. It’s not a language, just a weird font.
“Father? Where are you? Daddy? I don’t want to go in the pod. It doesn’t feel right! Wait, this isn’t the castle. Who- who are you? Why are you touching my arm? Where is my father?! Where is my father! Is he ok?!”
It looks like the girl Death was originally forced into has been along for the ride and dormant this whole time.
Yikes! Thank you for translating, that poor girl.
Uhh…am I the only one thinking Proxy might be Father?
Based on statements from Proxy we can infer that he’s not from ancient times. Though he has been serving the Magi for a long (by human standards) time. If my math is right he grew up during the Cold War.
D’aww… her face is so cute and innocent there once her eyes turned blue.^^
Hmmm, I guess this may lead some credence to some people’s theories that it was Death, the magic element, controlling Death’s body. And not the actual Magi.
mmm i think it’s more the original magi somehow “Save” their memories into the pod she mentions, and they force kids with the right affinities to “load” said memories, but i’m wondering is she actually of a bloodline loyal to the Five magi, or was she adopted by proxy for that purpose? remember the elements Created the Null in an act of rebellion to the Fives Tyrannical reign.
My five cookies is that she’s practically been used as a doll to keep an old ideology alive. Basically forcing her to don a mantle of actions her ancestors felt was justified, for whatever reason. Be it that they were assaulted and needed a death machine (literally), were dying off and needed power to become immortal (control over life and death), or were just douchebags who felt they’d be better if their ideal empire (AKA one ruled by tyrannical magic control) would be the one to last eternally.
Remember the Atlanteans created the Magi as we know them, including Life and Death. The sole Atlantean we’ve seen in the comic so far even outright admitted they done goofed when it came to Life and Death.
Hmm, glad i kept that runic translation matrix from Magience. For anyone wondering what she said, it was
Where are you?
Daddy? I don’t want to go in the pod.
It doesn’t feel right!
Wait, this isn’t the castle.
Who – who are you?
Why are you touching my arm?
Where is my father?!
Where is my brother?!
Is he ok?!
yer a wizard
Because Phil is the Nice Guy, of course he’ll take on the responsibility for trying to fix this mess. And that translation, oh boy, yeah, that’s a definite “cleanup on isle five!” sort of mess. Phil of course is the Almighty Janitor!
Well, !@$&. I should have expected this.
We all knew this would probably happen, but of course we weren’t positive. There were still other routes he could have taken in regards to Death & Life. Still, its a nice complication for Phil to deal with. It makes Life’s return even more interesting and dramatic.
Oh yeah… Her “brother” (possibly actual brother?) That’s going to be a mess and a half. Assuming he doesn’t fall out of the portal and into Phils loving arms. Which would be hilarious.
“Give me a hug!”
… and things are now going to get more complicated… just how long has the sentient magic knownasdeathbeen in control…
If i remember correctly it is between 4k and 10k year ago.
One would of course hope for things to get less complicated, but of course its the complications that make things interesting! And yeah, from the translation someone provided, and the look on her face, Phil just ‘adopted’ a new problem.
Yup, similar to Emi but with it’s own unique complication! Hopefully Phil and Kate can figure something out quick before Life gets back.
Phil used Lay on Hands. And here I thought he was an Alchemist.
Multiclass with Paladin. The obvious answer there. Though depending on whether you’re using PF or PF2e that may or may not be an option.
He only laid one hand on her.
Its a dnd spell name, a healings one. Is a touch spell so only needs contact.
Clearly he cast lay on Hand.
You mean “Lay hand on”, as he’s laying hand on her shoulder and not laying her ON his hand.
Sorry, bad joke, but I had to.
Well that’s awkard
Honestly, I am a little surprised she is old enough to speak coherently.
And in the next comic…shoggoths. Lots of Shoggoths.
