Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code Easter Egg - The Eternity Code Tanslation

anlong the bottom of the pages in Artemis Fowl the Eternity Code it says;

A message from Artemis Fowl. Encrypted.
My dear newfound ally if you have deciphered this code then you are of sufficient intelligence to aid me in my mission. You may have heard of the Fowl family and imagine this mission to be illegal or even dangerous. I promise you this is now the case all I ask that you help me keep my memories where they belong. In my head. There are certain forces at work that wish to deprive me of
memories that are rightfully mine. There forces would wipe certain facts from my brain that are extremely important not to mention valuable. Who are these forces they are known as the people. I know what you are thinking this person Artemis Fowl has obviously lost his mind. Fairy people he cannot honestly expect me to believe this nonsense. It is an understandable reaction. Two years ago I would have reacted exactly the same way. But a lot can change in two years. I have seen greenskinned sprites fly under their own power. I have seen dwarfs use their cavernous mouths to dig tunnels. I have witnessed the healing power of elves and touched the flank of a noble centaur. These creatures exist. Take my word for it. But as powerful as these creatures are they fear one thing humans. We are the only living creatures with the power the overthrow their underground society. Our numbers could subdue even magic. So the people have decided that it is too dangerous to have a human boy with fairy knowledge in his head. Soon they will mind wipe me and this extraordinary information will disappear. There is one way to stop this happening. I have entrusted a computer disk to a reprobate of Mulch Diggums. The disk contains all my knowledge of the fairy folk. Of course the mind wipe will cause me to forget all about the dwarf and the disk. Diggums should bring the disk to me but common criminals are not to be trusted. I ask you to get a message to me. The message is simple. Six words only. Artemis Fowl must find Mulch Diggums. Wherever you see one of the faithful clutching this book repeat those words. The message will spread like a virus across the world eventually reaching my ears. I will act upon it putting all my resources into locating the mysterious mister Diggums. Once I find him the disk will reactivate all my memories and the knowledge will be mine again. Do this for me and when I rule the world then you will be rewarded. Remember Artemis Fowl must find Mulch Diggums.
Your new friend Artemis Fowl the Second.

I read the first Artemis Fowl in American (I think) version, and I've decrypted the bottom lines that were in Gnommish: The prophecies of Ohm phlegm pot cleaner to Frond elfen king. I am Ohm phlegm pot cleaner to the king. But I am much more than that for I see the future written in the phlegm. For centuries we pixies have read the phlegm but I am the best there has ever been. My visions are generally of little importance. I foretell outbreaks of troll pox or gas spasms among elderly dwarfs. But sometimes even a poor pot cleaner can see wondrous things. A vision came to me two moons ago when I was gazing deep into his majesty’s own phlegm pot. I was heating the pot over a flame when the sign appeared. This vision was more vivid and detailed than any I had previously seen. Because of its importance I decided to write it down for posterity and so I can say I told you so. I saw an age when the People have been driven underground by the Mud Men. This is what the phlegm told me. In this time one shall come among us. Fowl by name and foul by nature. A mud man unlike any other. He shall learn our secrets and use them against us. I see him now as plain as day. His face is pale he has dark eyes and raven hair. Yet it must be a mistake for he seems a mere youth. Surely no mud boy could outwit the People. But now I see that the boy is not alone. He is aided by a formidable warrior scared from a thousand battles. This fowl shall hold the People to ransom for their most precious possession gold. And in spite of all our magic there is still a chance that he will prevail. For he has discovered how to escape the time field. Unfortunately how the story ends I cannot say. But there was more to see. There is another story to come. Someone will bring the People and the Mud Men together. The worst of both races. This fairy’s goal is to grind all the creatures to earth beneath his boot. And who is traitor its is not clear. But he shall start a war unlike anything the People have ever seen. Those who were enemies shall be united against his. And for the first time there will be mud men below ground. I have one clue to his identity a riddle. Goblins shall rise and Haven shall fall. A villainous elf is behind it all to hind the one who so disappoints look ye to where the finger points. Instead of one face this elf has two both speak false and none speak true. While publicly he lends a helping hand his true aim is to seize command. I know. Its not very plain is it I don’t understand either. But perhaps in the future all will become clear. Look for a powerhungry elf who has a finger pointed at him during our tale. And so this is Ohm’s legacy. A warning that may save the world from total destruction. There’s not much to work with I know. The details are a bit sketchy. My advice to you is to consult the phlegm. It may be that you are sensitive. I have buried this prophecy with my phlegm pot. If you are not fortunate enough to work as a pot cleaner then there is usually a supply of phlegm every time you have a cold. Here ends the first prophecy of Ohm. Because of the importance of my visions I shall repeat the prophecies once more. If you have just begun to understand the text then read on. If you have worked out the entire message then congratulations. Now go and save the world.

I bought Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception (The American version) three days ago and I have read and deciphered the code at the bottom and the cover of the book. On the cover, it says "Opal wants revenge" Inside, it says, "A recruitment letter from the centaur Foaly, technical consultant to the Lower Elements Police. Trusted ally, if you have decoded this Gnommish message, then you are a deputy officer in the Lower Elements Police, you will now be aware of this fact because it it the practice of the LEP to mindwipe our human allies. We do this so they cannot remember being recruited. If you cannot remember the fairy People or our underground city then you cannot betray our existence to the greedy humans. Of course, not all humans are greedy. You, deputy are a noble member of your species and clever, too. We only recruit the best. Our intelligence department studied your file and concluded that you were suitable for LEP membership. At the moment you are only a deputy officer. To become a fully fledged officer, you must complete four tasks. #1; decode this message, something you are well on your way to completing. #2; save the life of a member of another species you can complete this task in any number of ways: open a window to release a trapped fly, build a bird bath in your garden, release a mouse from a trap. #3; achieve a perfect score on a school test or homework assignment. In this job you need to be smart as well as fit. #4; wash yourself every day for a week. This is a difficult assignment, especially for human boys who do not like contact with water. If you are going to work underground, often in cramped tunnels, you will appreciate a partner who does not smeel like a hermit dwarf. Once you have completed these tasks, you must summon your recruiting officer in the ancient fashion. Go to your back yard of your nearest green area. Make sure you are not being watched. Find a soft spot of ground and burrow a six-inch hole with a broom handle or short stick. When your hole is ready, tap out the letters L E P in horse code. The code for L E P is as follows: L tap tap wiggle tap E wiggle wiggle tap P tap wiggle drill. (Anyone know what the message means by drill?) Do this at least a hundred times and our underground sensors will pick up the vibration and send an LEP officer with your uniform and orders. Good luck deputy, Foaly

When I first read Artemis Fowl I decided to decypher the code in the book. A is a dragonfly. The letter B is five connected circles. C is a U shape with a dot through it with a dot in the base. D is an oak leaf. E is a squiggly line at the bottom of the word, but if the E is the first letter it is above the rest of the letters. F is an eye. G is a fish. H is a box with lines coming out of it. I is an acorn. J is three interconnected circles. K is a mushroom. L is a circle with an X through it. M is a tulip. N is two triangles, one on top of another. O is a triangle with dots at every point. P is a pencil. I couldn't remember Q but it is only used once or twice so you will probably recognise it if you see it. The letter R is a droplet. S is a swirly three pointed thing. T is a hexagon divided into six sections. The letter U is a cresent moon. V is a 8 on its side. W is a bar with a curved line over it. X is a shell . Y is a crab. Z is a circle with a triangle and a line through it. Mr. Ouchies unfortunatly you are wrong. This code is a simple cyphe and you can figure it out using the key in the first book it only takes about a half our to decode a book. Anyone with a brain can do it.

In the Australian softcover version of Opal Deception at least, there is 3D Gnommish text circled around the DNA design in the inside covers; it reads "DNA never lies"

The Arctic Incident Congratulations, human. If you have cracked this code, then you are more intelligent than most of your species. This is a message from the fairy people. We are seeking out our allies among the mud men. Though most humans are dull-witted creatures there are exceptions. You for example. The reason for your intelligence is that you have fairy ancestors. Do you feel different from those around you? are your ears a bit pointier than most is your tongue long enough to touch your nose? Do you dream of flying? Have you ever thought that you do not belong among the mud men? That is because you have fairy blood in your veins. So young mud fairy I have a mission for you. As one of the people it is your duty to protect the earth from those who would destroy it. You must become one of a new race of mud men who love this planet as much as the fairy folk. There is one simple rule. Use only what you need and use it wisely. Do this and the earth will survive. Go now and begin your quest. I shall repeat this message for those humans whose fairy intelligence is buried a bit deeper than yours.

I read the newest Artemis Fowl book, The Lost colony and this is what the code along the bottom says. The demon scrolls tell of a warlock that will come to save out people but i wouldn’t rely too much on the scrolls. They also say that rabbits are the supreme beings and that the best cure for a sore throat is a poultice of dung and old socks. Hence trust the scrolls at your own peril. There are however a few basic tips for survival if a demon tribe that might be helpful if you were a human say and had never actually met a demon before. Which is unlikely to say the least. If you were human you wouldn’t be able to read this in the first place. So. Demon survival tips. First never stab a demon with his own sword. This is the ultimate insult and will result in a vendetta that could go on for generations. It is fine to stab a demon with your sword he will congratulate you for managing that but only poor warriors lost their swords and then get stabbed with them. If the opportunity arrives give it a miss. Second. Demons have a pretty comprehensive system of sign language in which buttock slapping features heavily. It is very important not to slap the wrong buttock. Never slap someone else’s buttock unless they stab you with your own sword that is considered very bad manners. And learn the difference between the leftbuttock slap and the rightbuttock slap. If a passerby aims his buttock at you and slaps the left one it means that there is a full moon due that evening and he hopes you will join him for the traditional hunt. If he slaps the right buttock it simply means that you remind him of his right buttock. You can see where problems would arrive. Finnaly never sneeze into your fist. Always allow the sneeze to run free into the air. Medical demons assure us that the sneeze compromises millions of tiny flying demons that zoom around the earth until they can find a human to land on. When they alight on their host humans they hack into their scalps with tiny axes causing terrible headaches which makes the humans easy to defeat in battle. Therefore when a demon sneezes immediately slap your right buttock in the direction of the sneeze so that the tiny demons can pass on the message to the humans they land on.

I decrypted them all and can read them easily without the code. It's easy - The first book use the bit where artemis is translating it with the picture of the knommish and use that to get the letters - I can now read anything in it without a sheet. The Second look for when foaly is going on about centurian and decode it thier. The third you have to use the dedication to decrypt it. If you have them in hardback you can take off the dust cover to see the title in the language. I decrypted them all way before looking at any sheets of info and can read them all off by heart now.

Mr.Ouchies, you are most pathetic. Mr. Colfer wasn't swearing at you, and i'm sure he could prove it. You lie very pathetically. Now anyway, I translated the Gnommish on the 1st book the day it came out using only the book, a pencil, and a piece of paper. Now I am fluent in Gnommish, and read the bottem of the fourth book aa easily as reading the english script. I am unfortunately unfortunate enough to live in America, therfore only recently finding out about the Gnommish on the 2nd and 3rd books. Well it was nice talking to you and remember ARTEMIS FOWL MUST FIND MULCH DIGGUMS. P.S. you know your an Artemis Fowl nutcase when you go into your backyard and tap 'horse code' into the ground. As i'm planning to do today.

Could someone please e-mail me the complete translations for the first 3 books. I plan to make custom sticky labelsto to put on each page. I would like each page translated to be on a seperate line (so each line can be on a seperate sticker.) So you know...I found a font for the gnomish writing. http://www.geocities.com/thephlegmpot/font.html

I translated the third book by looking for the words "artemis fowl" and found them in the first few pages, as I expected to. You see, all eleven letters in "artemis fowl" are different, so it is an easily located word pattern. From there, I got the single letters and the word "message", and continued. The third book is the hardest to decode, there is no clue like in the first, second, fourth and fifth. After the first 50 pages of the first book, it reading Gnommish was like reading English - you become fluent after a short time.

Hi. I've decoded the gnommish and can now read it ok without a translation. But the reading the code from the 3rd book (eternity code) makes my eyes hurt, so if anyone could post a full translation of it i'd be very happy. Thanks. The code in the lost colony reads:The demon scrolls tell of a warlock that will come to save our people but I wouldn't rely to much on the scrolls. They also say that rabbits are the supreme beings and that the best cure for a sore throat is a poultice of dung and old socks.

Thank you for telling me the message because the american version doesn't have the code on the bottom of the pages. Altough it says that there is a secret message encrypted onto the cover of the book but i still haven't figured it out what it is, the only guess is that when you scratch off the blue part of the cover under it there is something

Hey Mr. Ouchies you must have a lot of time on your hands to read all these posts, why don't you get a life, you're probably one of those fat guys that sit behind their computer playing counter-strike all day, you probably don't even read books that don't have any pictures in them.

"ARTEMIS FOWL MUST FIND MULCH DIGGUMS!" I thought I was the only one who had decoded it! How cool is it. After decoding the entire book I'm almost fluent in the Language. I know all the vowels off by heart (e.g. A: six bars from top E: twelve bars from top)and I was so thrilled when I finished reading the message. I was going to e-mail it straight to Eon Colfer, believing I was the only one but then, as I was searching for so kind of fan mail I strolled along this. On the front of the Australian adition it has THINK FAIRY. THINK AGAIN. Any way just wrote to congradulate one of the FAITHFUL! Venlock, one of the Faithful

First of all, all I have to say is that you have WAY too much time on your hands. Get a life. And second, when i decrypted it i thought the translation was a bunch of profanity that repeated over and over at me, so I sued the man who wrote the book. He paid me $2,000,000 dollars and he ran out of money to even afford making a new book. He has stopped making the book because of me. Too bad losers.
