The Words
« on: November 16, 2006, 06:20:50 am »

Just discovered this new version, played the game ages however there's a slight problem. 

I can't seem to learn The Words again, I vaguely remember the Melnorme giving them to me but this time round the Melnorme aren't being very helpful at all despite my hurling credits at them.  Where do I learn The Words again this is absurdly frustrating.

Try asking your allies for information. Especially those with a wider perspective on history will be able to help in this matter.

The Arilou also tell you what the words are.  The Pkunk also mention the words in a dream they had about a large creature eating a small creature.

Since we're in spoiler mode, I might as well mention that the homeworld Spathi can also tell you the words.

Also, the Pkunk, (unless that is what Novus was cryptically hinting at).

We can't tell you.

If i had one wish it would be that all memory of SC2 was erased so i could play it once more with the thrill of experiencing the unknown.

For you The Words are unknown. Enjoy it!

We can tell you, however, what The Words aren't.

Let's just say the Ur-Quan (both variants) aren't completely heartless killing/enslaving machines.  Grin

The words are what are used to communicate concepts and ideas between intelligent beings.

The specific words spoken by the Mael-Num are being withheld on the advice of my legal agent. Something about spoilers, I believe.
