The World Hymn Edit

Main article: World Hymn

The World Hymn is a dwarven carving of a poem that details all the nine ages of the world. It was later copied to an Equitan tapestry and supplemented with imagery. A transcript of the poem and the image for the third age are both shown below. [1]
BRB 3rd Age
3.1 Edit

The Age of Death​, the loss of gold
A time when earth would swallow whole
Nor fae nor men nor orc​ nor we
All lost and toss’d and bent and broke
A time of pain to each ring Hold

3.2 Edit

The beasts did rise and burn and loot
No wall of shield​ or hold could stand
And fickle elves did leave and run
And men so quick to alter word
Do promise cut and render mute

3.3 Edit

The dead did rise on southern shore
An empire dead its heart torn out
No aid to come from human hands
The hour grew dark, and foes in count
So press’d were we, like ne’er before

3.4 Edit

We call on elves to help us hold
‘Gainst all that stood to break us then
And end the light of dwarven works
They turn’d their backs on us those days
Betraying us, with scandal bold

3.5 Edit

Now allies old do stand as foes
As mountains fall so too we break
And thus bring close this Age of Woes
