Below is a message left by the 6 Human Gods to an Asura who seek to examine them scientifically.
(Note: The Asura, being secular scientists, have a deterministic view on everything in the universe. Under this view, which they call the Eternal Alchemy, laws of nature and chains of events determine the future. This particular Asura is studying the 6 Gods, which he believes is also manipulated by the Eternal Alchemy.

That's not exactly "secular" you know =P|||Quintus Antonius Adepphius Philologus Tyrianicus Canthacus Elonacus Durheimus|||

You prefer the term "Godless?"
I find that term a bit biased myself, sounded as if you don't have a religion it's something not desirable.

No, ultimately they are just like any religious group, attempting to prove their chosen religion above that of the surface species. During the quest, he calls the Tyrian religious system inferior many times. Asuran are still deeply spiritual, they just look at it a different way. It isn't secular or godless in any way.|||Quintus Antonius Adepphius Philologus Tyrianicus Canthacus Elonacus Durheimus|||

Well this is my first post in the lore forum though I have been lurking around for over a year. I love reading your posts and hopefully this will be useful
Here is the message:
Vm'jqqteomn dj'dpjat ipj'attw

Jm'soadvmd apjeta'jp v'yvms bmivwomn

The message to the Asura from the 6 gods is a cryptogram (which fits with the Asura being scientifically minded) and can be solved with a substitution cipher where:
A=S B=U C=* D=T
E=R F=* G=* H=Y
I=W J=O K=* L=*
M=N N=G O=I P=H
Q=F R=B S=D T=E
U=* V=A W=K X=M
*=There are not any of the letters in the message
So the message reads:
An offering to those who seek
Beyond the mists beyond the dreams
On distant shores oh a land unwaking
Answers there lie in waiting
I donít know what it means but Iím sure you guys will come up with some interesting ideas

New continent seems the most likely insinuation. Course, with the chapter-policy up in smoke, how are they going to pull that off?

Beyond the mists???
Could it be a reference to UW - or perhaps an expansion of UW as we know it?
Maybe we'll finally get to "meet" the Gods at some point.... loooong way down the line methinks tho.

It'd be nifty if this was another scavenger hunt, ala mini-moa. "Distant shores on lands unwaking" sounds like somewhere in either Echovald Forest or the Jade Sea.|||Quintus Antonius Adepphius Philologus Tyrianicus Canthacus Elonacus Durheimus|||
