Okay this is my scenario, With respect to the question: A good puzzle is a double-edged sword
I am still not satisfied with my answer and have clearly hit the top-end as far as my skill level goes. I am not concerned at all with reputation, I want to know what the darned inscription says. I would like to make my answer into a community wiki in hopes of encouraging others to jump in and maybe get a definitive answer on the inscription, AND keep it penalty free.
Am I understanding the function of a Community wiki correctly? Also if this is an agreaable way to go, will the answer still remain on the same page as the Question? Alternately can I shift what "research" is contained in my answer to a seperate entry in the same page and make that a community wiki instead. I've been writing Catholic clergy and some religious orders to ask questions when and where i can in an effort to find out if the inscription can be used to narrow down the owner of the sword to a particular group but, have not recieved many responses so that is still ongoing.
Thank you for your time.
