I present this unto thee, fellow sharders.
Hemalurgy, holiest of holy powers. By The LORD RULER, who shall live forever, God over men. Let not the knowledge of these sacred pages pass beyond the ministers, who dwell within his house, by his Holy Grace Unending.
Hemalurgy is greater by far than the lesser powers of allomancy or the barbarian powers of feruchemy, for it is the sum of both and more. Once granted unto the blessed of STEEL, they shall be forever changed.
Iron: Grant strength taken from humans.
Steel: Grant a physical power of Allomancy.
Tin: Enhance the human senses.
Pewter: Grant a physical power of Feruchemy.
Zinc: Enhance emotional fortitude.
Brass: Grant a mental power of Feruchemy
Copper: Enhance memory and intelligence.
Bronze: Grant a mental power of Allomancy.
Atium: Grant a power of temporal Allomancy.
Aluminum: Enhance a power of Allomancy.
Though you strike out their eyes,
they shall see the hearts of men.
For those who would truly serve His Grace, there shall ever be three of Steel to mark them.
Two shall bind their sight, and one shall bind their soul. Let the sacred spike of blessed metal pierce the heart of the sacrifice, to consume the soul and power. Thus prepared, the spike is thrust into the body and blood of the chosen by the Lord Ruler to receive his benediction.
Hope you guys enjoy!
Edit: Corrected a few minor mistranslations, as pointed out by Inkthinker. and finally figured out the typo that people were talking about. It is now "greater by far" as it should be.
