GENESIS OF GANARETH by Satange

Genesis of Living Things on Ganareth, or How Various Beings Came to Be (by Lystullbone, High Elf, Lecturer at the University of Al Drifa, Secrets of the Earth division)
ある者はGotharが今日ある全てのものを創造したと言い、
そして我々がしばしば地中深くや砂漠から発見する遺跡は、極めて正確に言及されているElfの記録よると、古の伝説的な巨人と奇怪な生物のものである。
このスタンスだと、偉大なる神を小型な昆虫から巨大な怪物までの生物を監視することに時間を費やす会計士の類にしてしまう。しかし、率直に考えて、神が個々の山猫に鋭い牙、次に山猫の獲物の脚、次にこれ、次にあれ、といったように際限なく変化させ続けたら、その脚はとても効率的なモノになり、山猫は獲物を補食できず死に至るだろう、同様に牙が鋭すぎれば、獲物の繁殖に問題が起こり種は潰えるだろう。はっきり言って、この考えは理解できない。化石収集家の私の個人的見解は、Gotharは種を創り、その後は種自身に生きさせたがっているということである。彼は、野原に種を蒔いて、自然に世話を任せる農民に似ている。あなたは全ての種を見守る農民を想像できますか?定期的に踏み荒らされ不毛になったときに、それは多大な時間の損失であり、その野原自体を害するだろう・・・
その上で、皆がこのことを知っている「神は我々を世話しすぎない方が良く、彼らは全てを踏みにじるかもしれないが・・・」

Where did the seeds come from?
種は一般的な植物のように広がった。私の仲間と私には種が最初に展開した場所に関して意見の相違があります。空中で?海中で?私個人はあらゆる栄養が豊富な沼地の泥の中で始まったと信じています。あくまでも個人的見解ですが。如何にしてこれらの小さな種が成長を始めたのかは誰も知らない。非常に小さいため、奇妙な拡大装置を使用しているGnomeでさえ見ることが出来ない。もしそれらに脚の類があるならば、その小さい脚で走り他の種を捕食しているのは確実です・・・

---ここまで訳して、あまり重要でなさそうなことに気付いたので後回しにすることを誓う昼飯時('A`)

The Troll system
I will start my story from the time when we can understand things a little better: from the time when living things went out of their original place, water, air, more or less smelly places, in order to spread on the solid and empty grounds of Ganareth, and get a more decent size, allowing an easier observation.
Please allow me to digress for some time. Minuscule beings still exist nowadays, and clerics I know believe that these beings are responsible for some of our health problems, for instance when we start to sneeze like disgustig Gnomes when spring comes. They say that tiny beings enter our hose and tickle our nostrils, which creates this well-known and sometimes unclean explosion (especially when you forgot your handkerchief). Allow me to laugh at this hypothesis, however: in the name of Gothar, why would these tiny animals enter our Elf or Human noses? To find something to eat? Do they hope to found a family? To build a town? A whole civilization maybe? Well these have to be very twisted thoughts! Now, back to the topic: beings we can see, from the swamp Zinzin to the largest dragon. So-called specialists with strange ideas tried to sort them according to different criteria, running on the ground or flying in the air, eating plants or flesh... Nonsense! O noble and wise scientists, please tell me which category dragons belong to, since they can both attack you from the skies, or, for a change, run after you and be faster than a dodo? What about the sucking Glargnub, that can feed on either fruits or your own blood?
The first remotely acceptable classification has been made by Trolls. At first glance, they have rustic manners, but they have plenty of good sense and could be a source of inspiration to many twisted minds. They divide living things in two categories : those that move, and those that don’t.
In the category of things that don’t move, you will find most plants, with the exception of the carnivorous Zlub and the like, that are deeply rooted like plants, but with teeth like animals. If you ever came too close to a carnivorous Zlub, you know that it is undoubtedly a moving thing!
And in the category of things that don’t move, they put everything else. Simple and direct. But this is not enough for a truely scientific mind.

The Orc system

Everybody knows that Orcs have a strong sense of family, and they wanted to improve the Troll system a little. For instance, among "those that don’t move", they wanted to make the distinction between those they could eat, and those they couldn’t. Let us honour this courageous endeavour, that made many Orc scientists die in horrible stomach pains: knowledge has a price. Let us also honour the improvements the Dark Elves made, by using war prisoners to test their plant mixtures, thus avoiding many personal problems.
However, it is advised to chain the guinea-pic tightly. I remember one of my friends, about twenty years ago, who died painfully: the plant mixture he gave to one of his test subjects turned out to be a very efficient tonic. My friend enjoyed the pleasure of this discovery for a very short time, thirty seconds exactly. Then his prisoner tore his limbs apart. I may add that the formula he used has been lost in the incident, but you need to know that my friend used to get his herbs from the swamps. Any takers? What you can and cannot eat, to get back to the topic. With a heavy price. But there are flaws in the system. For instance, Gnomes love various kinds of root stews that no civilized being can possibly enjoy. And we will not even mention Dwarven meals for the sake of decency. Moreover, an additional complexity appeared when Lutins tried to merge their system with the Orc classification. It was quite a nasty mess, I tell you.

The Lutin system

To me, Lutins created all this mess on purpose. They simply love confusion. To make a long story short, they said that it was not enough to make a difference between what was edible and what was not, but that it put many other aspects aside. For instance, Granpat guts, which are edible, have elastic properties, whereas Zlub fibers, also with elastic properties, aren’t edible. Thorns from many plants have the same use in war as a Zmorglub’s horn, for instance: either a plant or an animal, both make very useful reinforced clubs. So, according to Lutins, a classification between hard and soft, between stiff and elastic, between light and dark, between translucent and opaque, was something necessary.

The Human system

It is common knowledge that Humans have a strange mind. They must have thought Lutins didn’t do enough, and they wanted to introduce the notion of what they call "scientific substance" of things. For instance, the fact that both Baboukh and a Zmorglub lay eggs was supposed to mean that there was a kind or relationship between them! Whoever saw, even from a distance (which is much safer), both these creatures, knows for sure that they don’t have the slightest thing in common! The human theory made everybody in Ganareth laugh heartily. Only a few lost souls keep on trying to divide living things according to cold and warm-blooded animals, number of legs, or the fact that they nurse their babies or not. Tell me, do the nasty Glargnub (which flies, attacks and sucks your blood) and the Chlabs (that runs around you with joy, and sometimes urinates on your babouches) have the slightest thing in common? Let us put the Humans and their fantasies aside, and study the only system that has a real value: the Elf system.

The noble Elf system

Touchy people will notice that I didn’t mention the Darf, Gnome and Faery systems, and there is a good reason! They are only accurate for their own interests. Dwarves, who live inside mountains, have one hundred and twenty seven names for worms, and only one for flying beings. I understand that it’s hard for them to look upwards, because of their heavy helmets, but... Allright, I stop making fun of them. Some of them are quite enjoyable fellows, I must admit. Well, sometimes they are. I could say the same thing about Gnomes, who knows nothing but what splashes, dabbles and eructates in their dearest swamps; or Fairies, who are so light-headed that I would be surprised if they had more than ten words for those they call "the ground crew". They call us Elves "Vain ground crew", you can imagine the rest...

Back to the noble system, ours. Until we find proof to the contrary, this system is the most comprehensive there is. It goes back to the source: gods and world creation. I know. In the beginning of this essay, I told that you shouldn’t believe all this nonsense. But it is quite possible to create a solid theory of a mediocre basis. All you need to do is to avoid digging too much... So, Gothar created the nine gods. No, do not ask me who created Gothar, this is not the topic here. Each of the nine gods protected one people, but everybody knows there was more than nine. Korrgians, aerial beings, were destroyed in year 99. Morgans, who lived in the ground, and Kells, in the icy lands, who destroyed each other in the Great Quareel in 666. Well, this is what people say. Maybe there are a few left, somewhere in a secluded place. Time will tell.
This 666 event was the origin of the creation of these nine entities, and everybody knows their names by heart:

Galina, mother of Birds

Maam, mother of Mammals

Elytra,, mother of Insects

Reptansa, mother of Reptiles

Coccifera, mother of animated Plants

Nithuma, mother of the Living Dead

Placeeb, mother of Spirits

Diplood, mother of Colossuses

Daemonia, mother of Demons

I can already hear criticisms. People will tell: what about the Zourit, a soft and smart animal that lives in the sea? What about the man-eater, with a fish tail and (generally good-looking) breasts? What about the Hninu, a mix of a troll and a beast? What about the Gober of Io and many fish species that look a lot like it? Which category do they belong to? Some will even ask if there should be a difference between the living-dead that were originally Trolls, Gors, Chlabs or anything else. Or if an especialy strong Brave can be considered a Colossus.
Do you want to know my answer to all these questions ? "Go ahead, make a better system!"
It is quite easy to criticise, but it is much harder to create something better than my own theory! So for now, let us admit that Maam, mother of all Mammals, really lives in the constellation of the Great Reaper (note that I don’t believe it myself), and that she rules over animals that are as diverse as a Gor and a HarGarkh. Let us admit that the Hninu, half troll and half beast, is torn apart between Malecta, goddess of Trolls, and Maam, or even Agnar, which could explain why it has such a bad temper.
Let us admit that the man-eater has something of a Demon, of a Human, something of a Reptile, which makes her a creature of Daemonia, Gothar and Reptansa, and something of a fish, which apparently makes her a creature of nothing specific. This very special mix could explain many things about the psychology of this creature. This is the proof that science always meets reason, provided it is well put.
Finally, let us admit that I have grown tired of explaining this to you, so I will say it straight away: now leave me alone.
Or I’ll feed you to the Zlok.GENESIS OF GANARETH by Satange Genesis of Living Things on Ganareth, or How Various Beings Came to Be (by Lystullbone, High Elf, Lecturer at the University of Al Drifa, Secrets of the Earth division)SOME say that Gothar created everything as it is today, and that the remains we sometimes discover in the deep soils and deserts are those of legendary giants and bizarre beings too old for Elf records, although quite accurate, to mention.This stance would make the Great God a kind of accountant who would have spent his time watching over every living thing, from the tiniest insect to the greatest monster alike. But honestly, what could we think of a god who would spend his Holy Time providing each individual wildcat with sharp teeth, then giving legs to each of its potential preys, then this, then that, without end, altering elements constantly, for if the legs are too efficient, the wildcat cannot kill its prey and has to die, and if the wildcat’s teeth are too sharp, it creates problems related to breeding and the species fades away... Frankly, I do not think this makes any sense. My personal belief, although I am a mere bone collector, is that Gothar created seeds, and that he let them live by themselves afterwards. He is like a peasant sowing his field, then leaving nature taking care of it. Can you imagine a peasant watching after every grain in his field? It would be a huge loss of time, and would hurt the field itself, as it would be trampled regularly and become barren...Besides, everybody knows this: Gods better not take care of us too much, or they may trample everything too... Where did the seeds come from?Seeds were spread like those of common herbs. My fellows and I have rather different views on where these seeds have developed first. In the sky? In the sea? I for one believe it all started in the rich and fragrant swamp muds, full of every kind of nutriments. But this is just my personal opinion.Nobody knows for sure how these little seeds started to grow. They are so small that even Gnomes are unable to see them, even using their strange magnifying devices. There were undoubtedly seeds preying for other seeds, running with their small legs, if they had legs of any kind...The Troll systemI will start my story from the time when we can understand things a little better: from the time when living things went out of their original place, water, air, more or less smelly places, in order to spread on the solid and empty grounds of Ganareth, and get a more decent size, allowing an easier observation.Please allow me to digress for some time.
