Alex teaching? Now there is a scary thought!
although, he would be good at something, im sure…like being a king…
Ah, I get it now. That tablet is the Prima Official Strategy Guide for Dreamland.
Ummm, how much does it cost and where can I get one? 😉
“One Sword to rule them all,
One Sword to find them,
One Sword to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them”?
I think I can translate it, I just need a clear picture of the writings in the tablet… I can read in the second last line “Suddenly the door opene(d)…”
ooooh… very 1984… “big brother is watching!”
Wait–Sword had Nick’s job?
Teach and serve people… with a sword?
Besides teaching the people swordplay and serving them their own severed limbs, I fail to see how a weapon would be appropriate in those roles.
A sword is as much a symbol as a tool. A straight sword came to represent holiness and the cross, and often heroes have named or specific weapons that they wield that represent a variety of things.
It is rather like the Sword of Gryffindor from Harry Potter. On it’s own, it is a fine sword to be sure: however, much of it’s power, real or imaginary, comes from those who have wielded it, and the feats they accomplished with the blade in hand. Gryffindor himself used it for a number of years, Harry killed the basilisk with it, Neville decapitated Nagini with the blade, and it only appears to those who truly embody the ideas and ideals of House Gryffindor. Basically, it symbolizes heroism, bravery and nobility in those it chooses to appear to.
