Music, Tumblr, and Work: darktripz: The Epic Of Gilgamesh In Sumerian The EPIC OF GILGAMESH is the earliest great work of literature that we know of, and was first written down by the Sumerians around 2100 B.C. Ancient Sumer was the land that lay between the two rivers, the Tigris and Euphrates, in Mesopotamia. The language that the Sumerians spoke was unrelated to the Semitic languages of their neighbors the Akkadians and Babylonians, and it was written in a syllabary (a kind of alphabet) called “cuneiform”. By 2000 B.C., the language of Sumer had almost completely died out and was used only by scholars (like Latin is today). No one knows how it was pronounced because it has not been heard in 4000 years. What you hear in this video are a few of the opening lines of part of the epic poem, accompanied only by a long-neck, three-string, Sumerian lute known as a “ngish-gu-di”. The instrument is tuned to G - G - D, and although it is similar to other long neck lutes still in use today (the tar, the setar, the saz, etc.) the modern instruments are low tension and strung with fine steel wire. The ancient long neck lutes (such as the Egyptian “nefer”) were strung with gut and behaved slightly differently. The short-neck lute known as the “oud” is strung with gut/nylon, and its sound has much in common with the ancient long-neck lute although the oud is not a fretted instrument and its strings are much shorter (about 25 inches or 63 cm) as compared to 32 inches (82 cm) on a long-neck instrument. For anyone interested in these lutes, I highly recommend THE ARCHAEOMUSICOLOGY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST by Professor Richard Dumbrill. The location for this performance is the courtyard of Nebuchadnezzar’s palace in Babylon. The piece is four minutes long and is intended only as a taste of what the music of ancient Sumer might have sounded like. “The Sumerians” by Grendel Dark

Bad, Head, and My House: DEAD BY DAVLIGHT: THE EVIL WITHIN NEW KILLER: THE KEEPER SENTINEL TEACHABLE PERK You become obsessed with one survivor. Each time you hit your Obsession, the progress of each generator is instantly regressed by 8/9/10%. The killer can only be obsessed with one survivor at a THE CRAFTSMAN'S TOOLS time. "That cockroach. That sycophant. Living off me. Feeding off my work...."- Ruvik POWER This is your domain, and the Entity has given you the tools to exert your will over its inhabitants. You start the game with 4 Keeper Safes placed around the map, and 6 Wire Traps in your inventory. HEX: IRON SKIN TEACHABLE PERK A hex that intensifies as your rage deepens. Each time you are stunned by a pallet, Iron Skin gains Token. For each token, your pallet breaking speed and pallet stun recovery increases by 7%. (To a maximum of 6/7/8 tokens.) The effects persist for as long as the related hex totem is standing. . The Keeper can hold and throw Wire Traps using the secondary action key. Once the trap hits the ground, it becomes armed after 2 seconds, immobilizing any survivor that walks into it and allowing The Keeper to grab them. Wire Traps can be ESCaped or disabled by a channeled action of 10 seconds. This time is halved while in the killer's Terror Radius. HAMSTRING The Keeper can emerge from any Keeper Safe on the map by holding the alternate action key. In doing so, The Keeper tears off his own head and places it at his current location as a usable Keeper Safe. While emerging froma Keeper Safe, The Keeper's Terror Radius is reduced to 0, and remains silenced for 3 additional seconds after emerging. TEACHABLE PERK You leave brutal wounds that cripple your prey and impede their ability to escape. Upon entering a chase with an injured survivor, that survivor suffers moderately from the Hindered status effect for 10 seconds. Hamstring has a cooldown of 40/35/30 seconds. dare you come into my house and threaten me." -Ruvik "Too bad they dragged you into this. But either way, you're mine.
