Besides the brief references in the "King Ri'neref Notebook," what else do we know about the 'Regeltavok of Oorpah?'

I do know that the original lone book in the righthand Relto bookshelf uses quotes from the Regeltavok of Oorpah.

IIRC, it´s just "Regeltahvokh Oorpah", which literally means "the (gehltahv) of Oorpah".

Oorpah seems to have been some kind of prophet or seer or such - with this in mind, it MIGHT be, that "gehltahv" means something like "prophecy".

Gehltahv means writing (noun). (b'gehl = to write)

So Regehltahvok Oorpah means "The writing of Oorpah"

Yeah, to expand on what sel-tahn said:
"reh" = "the"; "gehl" = "write" (normal writing, not Age writing); "-tahv" = "-ing"; & "okh" = "of".
"Regeltavokh Oorpah" = "The Writing of Oorpah".

We don't really know that much about Oorpah, beyond the fact that he was a Ronay prophet (pre-D'ni, on Garternay). He wrote "Regeltavokh Oorpah", which was regarded by the D'ni as a book of prophecy (not to be confused with "Rekorokh Jimah", which literally means "The Book of Prophecy", written by the Great King, Ahlsendar).

I'm quite fascinated with anything having to do w/the D'ni religion:
Prophets: Ahlsendar, Gerad'Jenah, Gish, Jo'Irimah, Oorpah, Tevahr, & the Watcher.
Prophetesses: Aleshay, Athsheba, Hailesi, Nemiya, Shama, & Trisari.
Books: The Book of Nemiya, Ejemah'Terak, Regeltavokh Oorpah, Rekorokh Jimah, Urakh'Nidar, & Words.

The only book of D'ni prophecy or scripture we have in any amount is "Words" by the Watcher, and it's relatively short. I would love to see more, especially from Regeltavokh Oorpah & Rekorokh Jimah. Or I'd love to see "Words" in its entirety written in D'ni :)

There is an incomplete retranslation of the first section into D'ni.

Heh. And where do we find these tidbits? I don't currently have access to my D'ni archives at the moment, so I'm piecing things together at work.

As am I. Hence the question on the "Regaltavokh."

Quote:
Prophets: Ahlsendar, Gerad'Jenah, Gish, Jo'Irimah, Oorpah, Tevahr, & the Watcher.
Prophetesses: Aleshay, Athsheba, Hailesi, Nemiya, Shama, & Trisari.
Books: The Book of Nemiya, Ejemah'Terak, Regeltavokh Oorpah, Rekorokh Jimah, Urakh'Nidar, & Words.

And what do we know about each of these? And there any online sources, or references taken from notebooks published in the games perhaps?

Is the link posted by Gorobay the only source on this?

Most of them are from the kings' biographies. The Korokh Jimah was quoted in The Book of D'ni.

I don't think it is really a source exactly; it is a fan-made tentative translation written with an incomplete knowledge of D'ni.
