【书籍搬运】Nystrom’s Journal Nystrom的日记

Recommended Posts

原文:http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Nystrom%27s_Journal

我不知道自己怎么会听信安徳斯的计划。他说那个地方黄金满地,但我到现在都没看到一个子儿。更糟的是,我感觉其他祭司都已经开始怀疑我们的身份了。要是他们发现我们冒充成诺克特纳尔的祭司,我保证他们不会就这么放过我们。我得小心行事了。

作为一名“诺克特纳尔的祭司”,我被指派了一名导师。一个叫里德鲁斯的老黑精灵研究员。也许我伪装得好,就能从他嘴里撬出些关于朝圣之路的事。安徳斯跟我发誓,神庙里全部的宝藏,全放在他们心中的那块圣地里,据说位于那条朝圣路的末端;而我要做的就是让我们能活着通过其中的障碍。

哄里德鲁斯比我想像中容易得多。他告诉我一份关于朝圣之路的财富的信息,但他是以谜语形式说的。我尽最大努力记住了这些话,并告诉跟导师完成工作后的安德斯。唯一清楚的是,里德鲁斯似乎说了路上有五个“考验”之处。下面就是他说的每一句:

“其往身阴影,成暗之哨兵。他们永远徘徊漫步,予亵渎者致命一击。”

“其所立处,恒久警惕。惠于暗而争于明。”

“予她至爱,却拒之材。尤冀不为人见、感、行。”

“直且曲。其径救赎,一条奸诈叛愚之财宝道途。”

“旅途终时,女神环抱降临。毫不犹疑,为你希望永恒之礼。”

他还喃喃自语着一些难以捉摸的词句,比如“夜即新昼”1和他是“日之幽灵”2。我猜不透这些隐含神秘建议的话语,不过希望在明天的行动中,安德斯和我会能把我们学到的这一切都用到考验里。

============
译者注12:Night is the New Day、Ghost of the Sun。这两句话,都是Katatonia乐队的两个唱片名,现无对应中文翻译。应该是制作人员的彩蛋。

Nystrom's Journal
by Nystrom
A bandit's journal on attempting to con their way into the Twilight Sepulcher.


I don't know why I let Anders talk me into this plan. He said the place would be full of riches, but I have yet to see even a single gold coin. To make matters worse, I think the other priests are beginning to suspect we aren't who we say we are. If they discover we're posing as priests ofNocturnal, I'm sure they're not going to simply ask us to leave nicely. I'll have to watch my step.



As an "acolyte of Nocturnal," I've been assigned a mentor. Old dark elffellow by the name of Lythelus. Maybe if I act the part, I can pry some information from him about the Pilgrim's Path. Anders swears to me that all of the temple's wealth is stashed within their inner sanctum, which supposedly sits at the end of the path, so my job is to get us through the obstacles alive.



Lythelus was easier to coax than I expected. Gave me a wealth of information on the Pilgrim's Path, but he was speaking in riddles. I'll try to record what I remember here and share it with Anders after he's done with his mentor. The only thing Lythelus seemed clear about was that there were five "tests" on the path. This what he said about each:



"Shadows of their former selves, sentinels of the dark. They wander ever more and deal swift death to defilers."



"Above all they stand, vigilance everlasting. Beholden to the murk yet contentious of the glow."



"Offer what She desires most, but reject the material. For her greatest want is that which cannot be seen, felt or carried."



"Direct and yet indirect. The path to salvation a route of cunning with fortune betraying the foolish."



"The journey is complete, the Empress's embrace awaits the fallen. Hesitate not if you wish to gift her your eternal devotion."



He also mumbled some nonsensical phrases like "night is the new day" and how he was the "ghost of the sun." I have no idea what these cryptic sentiments mean, but hopefully during tomorrow's ritual, Anders and I will put everything we've learned to the test.
