“Welcome, O traveler, to the Bright City.
Be welcome to the stone upon which the Dragon Throne rests.
Be welcome to the temple of unsurpassed grace and shining beauty.
Be welcome to the seat of wisdom ever-growing and power never-failing.
Welcome, O noble traveler, to Eternal Calmiríë, the jewel at the heart of the World.”
