My research in D'ni linguistics reveals that those first 2 letters make a word I can't pronounce.
Right?

the numbers are 20 and 15. Not attached so I assume they are two separate numbers and that it isn't 515.

Right. pb tehb isn't any D'ni word we know, and it looks unpronouncable. My pet theory is that it, and the numbers below it, are a way of identifying which node this is in the tunnel system. There are other theories, of course, but they're just silly. :)

You may be (I would say are probably) right about the numbers being the two numbers 20 and 15, but without knowing what they refer to, it's hard to tell.

Good to know I'm not just lost. :)

Your theory sounds intriguing what are the others?

For some reason a search at the DLF didn't turn up the discussion I was looking for, but Khrees has suggested it's an abbreviation of a blessing or dedication or something from one of the guilds, and I know someone has suggested it's a gahrohev, based on the theory that it's the text Atrus saw in BoA. (Which, IMNSHO, a total misread. :) )

Ok here is what I came upon. I was looking for something and found this map that is apparently in 'The Book of Ti'ana'. There are translations of the text on the map and one of them was of the text you are referring to.

welcome! :kthnxbye:

but i'm afraid something terribly wrong has happened!

allow me Mystress? just to inform you there's a banhammer that hovers above Mystcommunity, it looks like this

http://s63.photobuck...rent=hammer.jpg

you can upset this hammer by performing multiple illicit actions. one of them in the crime labeled as BUMPING.

a BUMP is a capital crime against the monarchy in which a citizen may reactivate a topic that has died (been inactive for over 30 days) this is a capital crime which may result in but may not be limited to

-Banning
-Screaming
-Hammering
-Flaming
-Hammering
-Warning
-Hammering
-Uncontrollable Emoticons
-Hammering
-Rush Fan Rants


and most importantly...HAMMERING!

but in the meantime just flash this...
