"They look like big, good, strong hands. Don't they? I always thought that's what they were. My little friends. The little man with his racing inix, the girl, even the stupid erldu. I couldn't hold on to them. Thehole pulled them right out of my hands. I failed."

Bynner half-giant talking about everyone falling down a hole

You have never had the urge to kill yourself, before now.

From 2004:-

The lightly burdened will be saved.

When you sleep inside, your thoughts are as high as the ceiling, when you sleep outdoors, your thoughts are as high as the stars.

He who shares my bread and salt is not my enemy.

At the narrow passage, there is no brother and no friend.

Found a Firefly quote that happens to apply particularly well.


"How come you didn't turn on me, Amos?"
"Money wasn't good enough."
"What happens when it is?"
"Well, that'll be an interesting day."
Where have you buried the body, MeTekillot?

"Man, woman, gith. I don't care. As long as it rears my inix."
--------------------------------
You say to the burly, face-inked man, in sirihish:
     " Now this is all the 'sid Malik gave us in advance. You give it back to him, tell him the job didn't work out. We're not thieves... well, we are thieves, but the point is we're not taking what's his. We'll stay out of his way as best we can from here on in. You'll explain that's best for everyone, okay?"

The burly, face-inked man stands up.

The burly, face-inked man says, in sirihish:
     "Keep the 'sid. Use it to buy a funeral. It doesn't matter where you go, or how far you ride, I will hunt you down, and the last thing you see will be my blade."

You subdue the burly, face-inked man, despite his attempts to wrestle away.

You say, in sirihish:
     "Darn."

You release the burly, face-inked man and roughly shove him north.

You look north.
To the north is Over the Edge:
[nothing]

You hear someone cry out in the distance.

The gritty, rough man walks in from the east, dragging the tall, muscular man with him.

The gritty, rough man releases the tall, muscular man and he immediately moves away.

You say to the tall, muscular man, in sirihish:
     "Now this is all the money that Malik gave us in advance--"

Speaking hurriedly, the tall, muscular man says, in sirihish:
     "Oh, I get it! I'm good. Best thing for everybody!"

Grinning desperately, the tall muscular man says, in sirihish:
    "I'm right there with you."

Squatting over your bludgeoned, bleeding form and gesturing through the gate, Lord Templar Nolte says,
"See, that's the wilderness. This isn't. This is Allanak. This is my town. Out here you're a trespasser. Out here I can pick you up, burn your house, fuck your wife, and kill your dog. And the only thing that'll protect you is if I can't find you. And I already found you."

“It is one thing to lead by example with half a dozen soldiers at your back. It is wholly another with ten thousand.”
- One astute Blue robe to another.

“Allanak was an ancient civilization, steeped in the power of antiquity, where gods once walked on every trader track, every footpath, every lost road between forgotten places. It was said the sands hoarded power within their sussurating currents, that every stone had soaked up sorcery like blood, and that beneath every city lay the ruins of countless other cities, older cities, cities that went back to the First Empire itself. It was said each city rose on the backs of ghosts, the substance of spirits thick like layers of crushed bone; that each city forever wept beneath the streets, forever laughed, shouted, hawked wares and bartered and prayed and drew first breaths that brought life and the last breaths that announced death. Beneath the streets there were dreams, wisdom, foolishness, fears, rage, grief, lust and love and bitter hatred.”

- Both quotes from Steven Erikson, Deadhouse Gates
I tripped and Fale down my stairs. Drink milk and you'll grow Uaptal. I know this guy from the state of Tenneshi. This house will go up Borsail tomorrow. I gave my book to him Nenyuk it back again. I hired this guy golfing to Kadius around for a while.
