Here is some interesting writing found inside the east most edge of the wall around the entrance
OSCULARIS TUI MATRIS CUM OS ISTE
"You kiss your mother with that mouth?"
As the very literate Astyanax points out: It should be, if anything, 'ore isto?' without the CUM. OSCULARIS
probably SHOULDN'T take the genitive (tui matris) but the accusative
West of the bridge near the river can be found some battle scars. Many players have missed them because you approach the bridge
from the east and by then you don't have any time for sightseeing.
These scars are created by stacks of body parts and satchel charges,
similar to the battle scars seen near the Myrkridian standard
in the Last Battle.
Neat special effects, map makers take note.
Matthew Holm writes:
"Outside the city walls, send a lone Berserk as far to the right of the map as possible. After you've blasted
your way through the welcoming committee at the gates, you'll be able to march the rest of your company

Legends and Lore is really Forrest's baby, though Gholsbane probably does more work on it nowadays. It also contains a lot of work from the Myth Nontoxic days whose exact authors have been lost or forgotten. Some of these lemurs include Joshstar, Orange, Lacrymosa, and poena.dare. Original "Journal of the Legion" concept by poena.dare and Hamish Sinclair. Other authors are credited as appropriate in their individual articles.
Myth at Bungie.org is now maintained almost entirely by Gholsbane and Zandervix; Forrest is (theoretically) still around calling the shots when he can be bothered to check his email, and Claude, as always, OWNZ U. Original Nontoxic webpage design copyright (c) 1998 by Joshstar; updates and revisions mostly by Forrest. Many thanks to all those old Nontoxic munkies - you know who you are.
