A Children’s Anuad
佚名
原文:http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Oblivion:A_Children%27s_Anuad
翻译:darlliu

注:本文也叫作"原创世之解释"(The Anuad Paraphrased),原题目(未采用)为木精灵创世传说(Ayleid (Bosmeri) Creation Myth)

另:读完全文即知,anuad指的是宇宙的创造,和创世(Creation)相对比暂时翻译成原创世.

最初有二者:阿努和帕赫姆(Anu & Padhome),他们是兄第.二者进入深渊(Void),时间(Time)随即开始.

当阿努和帕赫姆游荡在深渊之时,奈尔(Nir)在其光明与黑暗的碰撞下被创造出来.阿努和帕赫姆都为她的美丽而欣喜若惊,但她只爱阿努,帕赫姆于是在二人的刻薄对待下离开了.

奈尔随后怀孕了,但是当她临产时,帕赫姆又回来了,再次恳述他对她的爱恋.但她告诉他,她只爱阿努,帕赫姆遍愤怒地打了她.然后,阿努回来了,他与帕赫姆战斗,将他逐出时间之领域之外.奈尔生下了创世之一切(Creation),但她不久后就因所受之伤夭折了.阿努悲痛欲绝之下便将自己藏于太阳之后而沉睡.

同时,生命在创世所造之十二个世界上诞生繁衍.许多年代之后,帕赫姆得以重回时间之领域.他看到创世之世界并对之深恶痛绝.他挥舞他的利剑,将十二个世界的联系斩断.阿努又惊醒,他又与帕赫姆战斗.这场漫长而激烈的鏖战最终以阿努的胜利告终.他认为帕赫姆已死,便将帕赫姆的身体遗弃,然后试图将残余的十二个世界整合成一个—-奈恩,即泰姆瑞尔的世界(Nirn, Tamriel)—-以挽救创世.当他这么做的时候,帕赫姆给予他心脏致命的遗迹.阿努与他的兄弟纠缠并和他一同永远坠出时间之领域.

帕赫姆之血成为了恶魔(Daedra),阿努之血成为了星辰(Stars).他们混合的血液成了神(Aedra)(因此神同时有着善与恶的能力,并且比与创世无关的恶魔更关凡间的事务.)

在奈恩的世界中,一切都是混沌的.仅有来自两个创世之世界的生命幸存,即艾尔诺菲人(Ehlnofey)与西斯特之树(Hist),前者是所有人(Mer And Men)的祖先,后者是亚龙人的始祖之树.奈恩本来广布陆地,仅有少许小海而没有大洋.(意思是只有湖.)

艾尔诺菲人世界的一大块相对完整的碎片落在了奈恩的土地上,此处的艾尔诺菲人将自己与外界的混沌隔离开来,保全自己的平静,试图重过以前的生活.其他的艾尔诺菲人分散地落入了奈恩混杂而纷繁的世界中,他们游荡着寻找同伴,周而复始许多年.最终,游荡的艾尔诺菲人找到了古老的艾尔诺菲世界遗迹,他们欣喜而愉悦地发现自己的族人世代生活在往日的光辉中.他们于是希望被欢迎而进入这个平和的领域,但是前艾尔诺菲人认为他们早已退化而不复有往日的荣誉.无论如何,战争爆发了,延及整个奈恩.前艾尔诺菲人依旧保留古老的魔力和知识,但是游荡者(Wanderers)人数更众多,随着在奈恩世界的艰苦挣扎也变得更加强韧.这场战争改变了奈恩的面貌,将许多地表陷入了海洋之下,也就早就了我们今日所知的大陆(泰姆瑞尔 泰姆瑞尔 泰姆瑞尔 约库达[Tamriel, Akavir, Atmora, and Yokuda]).古老的艾尔诺菲国度虽然被毁坏了,但是依旧成为了泰姆瑞尔.其他的游荡者则分布在另外三个大陆上.(PS:派安多尼(Pyandonea)撒拉斯(Thras)这两个次大陆没有被提及,两者都临近泰姆瑞尔,详见泰姆瑞尔世界地理).

多年以后,泰姆瑞尔的艾尔诺菲人演化成了:
-人 (the Mer,词本义精灵)
-矮人 (the Dwemer,深陷的人)
-北地精灵(the Chimer,变化的人)
-黑暗精灵(the Dunmer,黑肤的诅咒之人)
-树(/木)精灵(Bosmer,绿色的森林之人)
-高精灵(the Altmer, 远古高等之人)

在其他的大陆上,游荡的艾尔诺菲人变成了其他人(men)—-阿特莫拉的诺德人(nord),约库达的红衣卫士(Redguard)还有阿卡维尔的蛇人(采斯其人,Tsaesci).

西斯特树旁观了整个艾尔诺菲人的战争,但它们大多数的领域也在战争进行之途中被毁.其中一小部分得以保全成为了泰姆瑞尔的黑色沼泽地区(Black Marsh),但它们大多的领域都陷入深海.

最终,人(men)回到了泰姆瑞尔.诺德人是最早的,他们在历史记录前即在泰姆瑞尔北部海岸殖民,由传说中的英雄伊斯格拉莫尔(Ysgramor)领导.他的第十三代后代,哈拉尔德国王,是第一个出现在历史上的人.于是神秘纪元完结了.

The Anuad Paraphrased
Early religious book providing a simplified version of The Anuad creation myth from the Mythic Era


The first ones were brothers: Anu and Padomay. They came into theVoid, and Time began.
As Anu and Padomay wandered the Void, the interplay of Light and Darkness created Nir. Both Anu and Padomay were amazed and delighted with her appearance, but she loved Anu, and Padomay retreated from them in bitterness.
Nir became pregnant, but before she gave birth, Padomay returned, professing his love for Nir. She told him that she loved only Anu, and Padomay beat her in rage. Anu returned, fought Padomay, and cast him outside Time. Nir gave birth to Creation, but died from her injuries soon after. Anu, grieving, hid himself in the sun and slept.
Meanwhile, life sprang up on the twelve worlds of creation and flourished. After many ages, Padomay was able to return to Time. He saw Creation and hated it. He swung his sword, shattering the twelve worlds in their alignment. Anu awoke, and fought Padomay again. The long and furious battle ended with Anu the victor. He cast aside the body of his brother, who he believed was dead, and attempted to save Creation by forming the remnants of the 12 worlds into one -- Nirn, the world of Tamriel. As he was doing so, Padomay struck him through the chest with one last blow. Anu grappled with his brother and pulled them both outside of Time forever.
The blood of Padomay became the Daedra. The blood of Anu became the stars. The mingled blood of both became the Aedra (hence their capacity for good and evil, and their greater affinity for earthly affairs than the Daedra, who have no connection to Creation).
On the world of Nirn, all was chaos. The only survivors of the twelve worlds of Creation were the Ehlnofey and the Hist. The Ehlnofey are the ancestors of Mer and Men. The Hist are the trees ofArgonia. Nirn originally was all land, with interspersed seas, but no oceans.
A large fragment of the Ehlnofey world landed on Nirn relatively intact, and the Ehlnofey living there were the ancestors of the Mer. These Ehlnofey fortified their borders from the chaos outside, hid their pocket of calm, and attempted to live on as before. Other Ehlnofey arrived on Nirn scattered amid the confused jumble of the shattered worlds, wandering and finding each other over the years. Eventually, the wandering Ehlnofey found the hidden land of Old Ehlnofey, and were amazed and joyful to find their kin living amid the splendor of ages past. The wandering Ehlnofey expected to be welcomed into the peaceful realm, but the Old Ehlnofey looked on them as degenerates, fallen from their former glory. For whatever reason, war broke out, and raged across the whole of Nirn. The Old Ehlnofey retained their ancient power and knowledge, but the Wanderers were more numerous, and toughened by their long struggle to survive on Nirn. This war reshaped the face of Nirn, sinking much of the land beneath new oceans, and leaving the lands as we know them (Tamriel, AkavirAtmora, and Yokuda). The Old Ehlnofey realm, although ruined, became Tamriel. The remnants of the Wanderers were left divided on the other 3 continents.
Over many years, the Ehlnofey of Tamriel became the Mer (Elves):

  • The Dwemer (the Deep Ones, sometimes called Dwarves)
  • The Chimer (the Changed Ones, who later became the Dunmer)
  • The Dunmer (the Dark or Cursed Ones, the Dark Elves)
  • The Bosmer (the Green or Forest Ones, the Wood Elves)
  • The Altmer (The Elder or High Ones, the High Elves).

On the other continents, the Wandering Ehlnofey became the Men: the Nords of Atmora, theRedguards of Yokuda, and the Tsaesci of Akavir.
The Hist were bystanders in the Ehlnofey war, but most of their realm was destroyed as the war passed over it. A small corner of it survived to become Black Marsh in Tamriel, but most of their realm was sunk beneath the sea.
Eventually, Men returned to Tamriel. The Nords were the first, colonizing the northern coast of Tamriel before recorded history, led by the legendary Ysgramor. The thirteenth of his line, King Harald, was the first to appear in written history. And so the Mythic Era ended.
