Could the ancient skybook be the Book of Mudora? --Remo 05:03, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Well, they're both books, so why not? After all, every sword in every game is the same thing with a different name, right? </sarcasm> Seriously though, does the world of Zelda have only one book?! User:Adam/sig 22:03, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
Umm yeah. Thanks Adam. Well theres that,
and also the Ancient Sky book translates the Sky Language and the Book of Mudora translates Ancient Hylian. NOT the same language NOT the same book. So yeah sorry. But they DO share similarities. Nice thinking! Onyx 23:18, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
That was exactly what I was going to say. I might add that the Book of Mudora is primarily about the Master Sword and is a guide to translating Ancient Hylian to whatever language is used in A Link to the Past. This means that the Book of Mudora is a recent creation and is not an ancient book. The Ancient Sky Book is about the Oocca and the Dominion Rod. It is in a very old language and was clearly created a very long time before Twilight Princess. Just about every timeline theory that I've seen places A Link to the Past either after Twilight Princess or on the Adult Line, but still after many other games and a great deal longer after Ocarina of Time than Twilight Princess is. So there is no way the books could be the same.User:Matt/sig 23:57, August 8, 2008 (UTC)


hmmmmm Well the sky language could be an ancient form of Hylian and also the sky book is not just for the dominion rod...but really a better point is....book of mudora is used to get into a desert cave...i just realized that. --Remo 05:12, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Merge

As it stands, the description on the Symbols page is far too long, almost as long as this entire article (which it links to as "Main article"). My view is that either the whole lot should be merged into Symbols, or the section there should be cut down and the information added here. User:Adam/sig 21:20, 21 August 2009 (UTC)

Well, apparently Sky Characters are considered "items" by the game:
You found one Sky character! A missing part of the word in the Ancient Sky Book has been restored. ...But there are still other missing characters.
...so maybe the info on the symbols page should be added here? Can Sky Characters even be considered symbols...? They're not really symbols in the sense that the symbols page is talking about, so I think the Sky Characters should have their own separate article. Dany36 21:55, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
My whole intention when starting the Symbols pages was to give accurate descriptions of every Symbol in the article, such as their meaning and their uses, if any. I wouldn't say the section the Symbols page was too long. There's just not much to say about them, but I said all I could. I believe, if you want a longer article, you should merge the Sky Characters page with the Ancient Sky Book page. Like Dany said, they're kind of like items. They deserve their own page, and they're recorded into the Sky Book, so that works out fine. Noble Wrot 01:18, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah I agree, adding the Sky Characters to the book page, would be the most ideal article to merge them with than the symbols page.User:Steven/sig 01:20, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
I vote to merge it with the Ancient Sky Book. They are more an alphabet than symbols. - AtrumLevis  (My Talk Page) (My Contributions) 18:26, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good to me too. Send it to the Ancient Sky Book. It'd make no sense to segregate what pretty much amounts to the same item, the Ancient Sky Book. Reminds me of having to obtain all of the Seasons for the Rod of Seasons, all of pieces of the Fused Shadow, etc...User:Axiomist/sig 22:47, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
