Godchecker's mythology encyclopedia


At last — after a lot of red herrings we have found out what happened to the Salmon of Knowledge.

It was caught by this gentleman who was a very ancient druid. What bait, fly, net or line he used is a piscatorial secret known only to those who go fishing for souls.

This was definitely catch of the day. Here is FINEGAS very pleased but also feeling slightly druidcidal because he lacks an audience. But, no — young FINN-MACCOOL the cool young leader of the Fenians has witnessed his triumph, and after a bit of persuasion was persuaded to try his hand at being a celebrity chef.

So.. the poached salmon is sizzling on a spit over carefully selected kindling, but young FINN-MACCOOL has culinary shortcomings and burns his thumb on a hot fin. Yes — he sucks the scorched digit.

FINEGAS, who knows about these things, relinquishes his portion saying: "Go for it son — you need the wisdom. Eat all the half-burnt half-raw fish garnished with stinging nettles, I just enjoy the fishing. I'm not that hungry. Besides I'm already far wiser than I need to be."
