吾神石

========

编者注:《吾神石》传统上被认定为莫利豪斯,即奴隶女王爱丽西亚配偶的回忆录。尽管得不到历史佐证,《吾神石》却肯定是自第一纪元早期流传下来的最古老文字记录之一。

==========

佩林纳尔之死

而于白金塔之流血漂橹王座之间,佩林纳尔之垂死头颅同有翼公牛莫利豪斯,即阿尔-艾诗之半神爱侣交谈。其言:“我等之敌毁坏了我,并将我的躯干藏匿。为嘲弄神意,亚历德将我砍成八块,只因其痴迷于此数。”

而莫利豪斯,虽迷惑不解其意,却仍喷息过其鼻环,说:“您的圣战超出她的建议能力,白芒,而我乃是公牛,判断力多让位于鲁莽。若您还有任何囚徒尚存留给我,我想我应前去顶穿其肚肠。您乃是浴血之荣耀,叔父,定将再起,如狐或光。塞瑞是我们的。”

于是佩林纳尔最后一次开口发言:“小心啊,莫利豪斯,小心!死亡带来预象让我明了我的敌人依旧活着,我不得不心怀苦闷走入坟墓。若我可在相信自己为胜者的幻想中死去该有多好!虽然我已将他驱逐出夜之门,他必将回归。英勇起来!我不再能自乌玛瑞尔之复仇中保护人类。”

爱丽西亚身为奴隶之童年

派丽芙最初生自哪个部落无人知晓,但她确实长于萨德,也称萨达瓦-黎德。亚历德于此处牧使全尼本之人类,包括寇思里族,尼德族,亚-盖姆哈族,克瑞斯部(尽管后来发现此族乃是自北方送来),凯普图族,盖部(此部于花王尼利奇向虫神[名字丢失]大祭时倾灭),亚-哈瑞德族,凯部,以及其他族群。但此地便是塞瑞,腹地高精灵帝国之中心,而人类毫无自由,甚至无法公开成家取名,因在其异族主人眼中此类区分彼此的方式毫无意义。

人类被役使采石耕种,修护寺院道路;或是成为古怪乐趣之艺术牺牲,例如温达赛尔的哭泣之轮与瑟森的肚腹花园;又或是成为活体雕塑,而此物在昔日亚历德奴隶中比比皆是;又或者更糟,乃是落入火王哈苏尔之领域——令人吸入自迪德拉混合物提取之毒,自此便被酷刑之幻象折磨;而只为夜间猎虎,便点燃孩童取亮。

莫利豪斯解释爱丽西亚之名号

于是莫利豪斯对他们说:“在你们的故事中她有诸多名号:阿尔-爱诗,因敬畏而如此唤她,翻译过来好似赘词,‘至高之高’,由此生出其他你们更熟悉的误用:爱丽舒特,艾莎,爱丽西亚。你们知道她是帕拉梵,‘其族之首’,此名因其加冕所得,因众神认为其乃是足以担任杀戮-要求-医治主宰的凡人。由此名衍生出帕拉瓦,派维诗,派莱苏,派丽芙,而当我与她尚为恋人,我称其为帕拉瓦妮娅。”

“虽她已离我而去,她依旧遍身群星光辉,第一女帝,苍穹女士,塞瑞之女王。”

于是他们自觉已获得完整答案,故而离去。

The Adabal-a
by Morihaus
The memoirs of Morihaus, consort to Alessia and Taker of the Citadel


Editor's Note: The Adabal-a is traditionally believed to be the memoirs ofMorihaus, consort to Alessia the Slave Queen. While this cannot be historically verified, the Adabal-a is certainly among the oldest written accounts to come down to us from the early First Era.

PELINAL'S DEATH
And in the blood-floored throne room of White-Gold, the severed head of Pelinal spoke to the winged-bull, Morihaus, demigod lover of Al-Esh, saying, "Our enemies have undone me, and spread my body into hiding. In mockery of divine purpose, the Ayleids cut me into eighths, for they are obsessed with this number."
And Morihaus, confused, snorted through his ring, saying, "Your crusades went beyond her counsel, Whitestrake, but I am a bull, and therefore reckless in my wit. I think I would go and gore our prisoners if you had left any alive. You are blood-made-glorious, uncle, and will come again, as fox animal or light. Cyrod is still ours."
Then Pelinal spoke again for the last time: "Beware, Morihaus, beware! With the foresight of death I know now that my foe yet lives, bitter knowledge to take to my grave. Better that I had died believing myself the victor. Although cast beyond the doors of night, he will return. Be vigilant! I can no longer shield the host of Men from Umaril's retribution."

ALESSIA'S YOUTH DURING THE SLAVE-YEARS
Perrif's original tribe is unknown, but she grew up in Sard, anon Sardarvar Leed, where the Ayleids herded in men from across all the Nibenkothrinede, al-gemha, men-of-'kreath (though these were later known to be imported from the North), keptu, men-of-ge (who were eventually destroyed when the Flower King Nilichi made great sacrifice to an insect god named %5Blost%5D), al-hared, men-of-ket, others; but this was Cyrod, the heart of the imperatum saliache, where men knew no freedom, even to keep family, or choice of name except in secret, and so to their alien masters all of these designations were irrelevant.
Men were given over to the lifting of stones, and the draining of the fields, and the upkeep of temple and road; or to become art-tortures for strange pleasures, as in the wailing wheels ofVindasel and the gut-gardens of Sercen; and flesh-sculpture, which was everywhere among the slaves of the Ayleids in those days; or, worse, the realms of the Fire King Hadhuul, where the begetting of drugs drawn from the admixture of daedrons into living hosts let one inhale new visions of torment, and children were set aflame for nighttime tiger sport.

MORIHAUS EXPLAINS ALESSIA'S NAMES
Then Morihaus said to them: "In your tales you have many names for her: Al-Esh, given to her in awe, that when translated sounds like a redundancy, 'the high high', from which come the more familiar corruptions: Aleshut, Esha, Alessia. You knew her as Paravant, given to her when crowned, 'first of its kind', by which the gods meant a mortal worthy of the majesty that is killing-questing-healing, which is also Paraval, Pevesh, Perrethu, Perrif, and, in my case, for it is what I called her when we were lovers: Paravania."
"Though she is gone to me, she remains bathed in stars, first Empress, Lady of Heaven, Queen-ut-Cyrod."
And they considered themselves full-answered, and departed.
