    Here is a condensed list of Medieval texts, codices, scriptures and tomes that will be making appearances in game:

    Bollis Voyage
    Das Nibelungenlied
    Disquisitionum Magicarum Libre Sex (excerpts)
    Extracts from Njarls Saga
    Gudrans Incitement – from The Elder Eddas
    Malleus Maleficarum
    Parable of the Sower
    The Edict of Worms
    The Incantation of Groa – from The Elder Eddas
    The Slaughter of the Niflungs – from The Elder Eddas
    The Song of the Sun – from The Elder Eddas
    The Small Catechism of Martin Luther
    The Woof of War
    Tristan

    excellent examples of 14th to 16th c. literature; many of these texts can be read at Project Gutenberg. Or simply play the game.

    “Go now ever where calamity may be, and no harm shall obstruct thy wishes. On a stone fast in the earth I have stood within the door, while songs I sang to thee.” – The Incantation of Groa (English tr)

    …and a sampling of traditional medieval carols that will be provided as backdrop for Neverdarklands.

    Angelus Ad Virginem
    Gud Faders Son Enbaarne
    Puer Nobis Nascitur
    Quem Pastores Laudavere
    Resonet In Laudibus
    Veni Emmanuel
    Wachet Auf
    Wie Schon Leuchet

    Once I finish recording these, I will have provide downloadable versions of each. You might be surprised at how many of these you know already.
