So, my friend knows I love languages, and I think I told her once or twice that I could read and write Latin. Well, she was showing me something scribbled all over Maxwell’s wall’s from Don’t Starve, and I thought I would translate some of it, to see what’s what with Maxwell.
[10:59:42 PM] Randilion: Devinction= incantation
[11:00:04 PM] Randilion: I am not sure what the ibuso is to that
[11:00:34 PM] Kelseyfer: Ibuso?
[11:01:34 PM] Randilion: Devinction ibuso
[11:01:58 PM] Randilion: It might mean to recite an incantion aloud
[11:02:04 PM] Kelseyfer: hm
[11:02:54 PM] Randilion: pretiositae= jewel. The first part of it pret= price, pretios= value
[11:03:23 PM] Randilion: magicae= magic. XD duh
[11:04:12 PM] Randilion: insanium=insanity
[11:04:15 PM] Kelseyfer: the whole ENOUGH! and charlie Charlie CHARLIE thing is a bit unsettling
[11:04:53 PM] Randilion: I am getting to that~ you might have a clue about what he did to her in a sec. ;)
[11:06:05 PM] Kelseyfer: what if it’s the cost of magic?
[11:06:07 PM] Kelseyfer: like
[11:06:13 PM] Kelseyfer: you’ve got the value word
[11:06:19 PM] Kelseyfer: so the price of his magic is his sanity
[11:06:30 PM] Randilion: alucinatio= illusion. This is weird though, because the start of it.. means romance.
[11:06:34 PM] Randilion: Oh god..
[11:06:44 PM] Kelseyfer: some people do think that was a thing between them
[11:06:52 PM] Randilion: The price, of this is something dear, something which you love.
[11:07:07 PM] Randilion: I will keep transcribbing.
[11:07:18 PM] Kelseyfer: I love stuff like this .u.
[11:07:43 PM] Randilion: tenebris= dark
[11:08:07 PM] Kelseyfer: dark magics?
[11:08:20 PM] Randilion: voces= voices. Yes.
[11:08:28 PM] Randilion: Dark beings from an incantation.
[11:08:44 PM] Randilion: Taking Charlie in an exchange for power.
[11:08:58 PM] Randilion: For mastering an illusion?
I kind of think Maxwell found a text for summoning things he could not control, and they promised him mastery over an illusion, in exchange for something that was dear to him, likely Charlie. I also think that he has the makings of a life amulet scribbled on one side of the wall, too. It’s pretty sad, actually!
