After being at the source of a river in the north for a long time, the ruler had been eating many different plants which acted as drugs and it caused him to become hungry for power. He really wanted control of the country.

about the bloody ruler

He got the thing he desired because the plant which he ate, gave the ruler, the knowledge to attack. Then he ate and then punished himself.


Basic word order is SVO with obligatory tense marking before and aspect marking after the verb. Most words can play the role of noun, verb, adjective, and adverb, but will have the same basic meaning e.g. löl – food, eat, that is a food, whilst eating.

Adjectives and adverbs come after the noun/verb, as do things such as relative clauses.

Here punctuation is the same as in English bar capitalisation, so yes that really is a random sentence fragment.

secondary clauses such as those following bî and can' will have a noun or verb after them depending on the clause.
