P1
Some kind of lizard man emerges from the cave. Give him a big f-ing axe!

Lizard Man: Soon you will be nothing, puny human!

P2
Lizard Man: Elberon is no place for mortal men!

P3
Apathea basically just waves her hand in front of her & murmurs a spell to kill lizard man. If you can make her look bored, bonus!

Apathea: Avara ampua.

(Fun Fact: This means “large fire” in Finnish!)
(Fun Fact! Finnish is now the language of magic.)

It turns out that Tolkien’s Elvish is based on Finnish & Welsh, so although I didn’t know it at the time, Finnish is actually only one half the language of magic.
