Hi everyone! The last couple of days I've been making an effort to go around Ae'gura, looking at the architecture and things from different angles to gain a further appreciation on the small details. Today, for the first time, I noticed writing above 3 of the doors on the Mall and I was wondering if anyone knows what it means?

The best I can make out it reads:

revauano ??nEen ??mtE

revauano ??nEen ??mtE

The image is too wide, so I put it in a spoiler.

*squints at image for a bit*

It looks like the same rebahntahno tenee-en shemtee text that's everywhere else in Ae'gura: "the [bahntahno] [tenee]s you".

Shorah OHB,

larryf58 did an interesting analysis of many of the Ae'gura buildings, including the canyon mall area. You can read more about it here.

He wasn't able to find a canon translation, but here's what he has speculated:

There is also an inscription in D'ni that reads, "rehbahntahno tehneeehn shehmtee". Unfortunately, no one has a definitive translation of the sentence, so I can't tell you what it says in English. Considering that it is found in many places on Ae'gura, it's most likely a slogan for the city or government.

"I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you" (just a guess)

Considering the money and power situation when the cavern fell it probably says "Shop at Kadish Gallery!
The Grower Knows!"
