I figured that we would need a speak in your premodern conlang thread to balance the speak in your (modern) conlang thread, for the same reasons that I created the same sort of thread on the ZBB.

Impure hands are the hands of those who have commited a crime.

Notae bene:
Ḱāiŋoðe is a goddess of the storm-howled mountains, and often manifests to mountaineers and shepherds in need, and always has an extremely sturdy supply of rope.

Erĕl is a demigod of the people, if you will. He often travels the world, seeking out lone travellers to both gain and provide companionship on long journeys. While kind at heart, he is also a trickster god, and frequently play pranks on those companions; if they take it well, he typically leaves them a special item when they part ways, but if they do not, they usually find themselves the victim of a far more malicious prank. I detailed a story of him here.
