Maybe I'm losing my sense of humor. But I spent half a day trying to translate the D'ni script running around the jugs. It turns out to be a Yeesha prank. The D'ni letters are a phonetic representation of "Water will flow". The only real D'ni is the word "Tehr" = "tree" embedded in the middle of it. She's helping me choose sides. I'm glad I declined her silly shirt. Boo.

I was lucky in not spending the time translating it then. I just assumed it said something like "Boil for three minutes".

Boil for 3 minutes? Is that all it says? Dayum. I've been scramblin' my brains tryin' to translate thinkin' it was somethin' deep and meaningful...lol.

Actually the vases weren't made by Cyan, nor was the texture, so you can blame that on a fellow explorer instead of Yeesha http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

(The lanterns in some 'hoods that say "this is a lantern" however... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif)

The egg room is pretty darn famous around here. Did they open it up again or something?

I guess they had to open it up because everyone was already balcony-jumping into it.

Balcony jumping... I keep hearing that phrase, what is it? And how can you "balcony jump"(assuming balcony has something to do with jumping of a balcony) into the egg room? Doesn't it have a roof?
