I'm not really familiar with Archaic English. But in Monty Python and the Holy Grail they use this sentence in the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch Scene anyways.

I watched that scene again, and the quote was:
Quote
And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on high, saying, 'O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade that, with it, Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits in Thy mercy.'
So, in this context, thou is appropriate. But... what about the one in the Holy Seal flavour text? Should it be thou or ye?
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

Modified to show my respect. Thou has been changed to Ye.

But you forgot to change the genitive form and the conjugation of the verb mayen! It should be your and ye mayen!
Along the shore the cloud waves break,
The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Songs that the Hyades shall sing,
Where flap the tatters of the King,
Must die unheard in
Dim Carcosa.

Song of my soul, my voice is dead,
Die thou, unsung, as tears unshed
Shall dry and die in
Lost Carcosa.

The correct possessive adjective is your, not thy or thine.
Quote
Skull of Chaos: ... phenomenon...
Should be in the plural form (phenomena).

The twin suns sink behind the lake,
The shadows lengthen
In Carcosa.

Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is

Hello,

Well... At least there was (or still is, should you continue) a seed of on-topic in your typo-a-torium. :)
Don't worry. This discussion between me and Chimto is still revolving around the topic of the thread.

Try item sets and synthesis. Those don't have much yet.

Okay, so some excellent sentences here. THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Some of them are really great, I mean REALLY great. One thing: Don't make a sentence that goes beyond Oelivert. For example don't talk about bucks, it's real money so...

Here are the sentences I'm going to add to the new version of the campaign. If you feeel like some of your excellent ideas are not here just reply and I'll check them again.

Some of these sentences, especially the ones at the top of the list, are obviously Aero's.
