The Ancient Plaque's inscription as seen in game.

An ancient plaque can be found outside of Nex's chamber, inside the God Wars Dungeon.

When read, the plaque displays the following:

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Ancient Plaque.

Vita brevis breviter in brevi finietur,
mors venit velociter quae neminem veretur,
omnia mors perimit et nulli miseretur.


The text, which is in Latin, is translated as such:

Life is short, and will shortly end,
Death comes quickly, which fears no one
Death destroys all, and has pity for none.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The inscription on the plaque is taken from the lyrics to "Ad Mortem Festinamus", a medieval song which served as a memento mori, a reminder of the certainty of death.
