  • Mabinogi means the songs of wandering bards. The songs mostly consist of heroic or legendary stories.
    In Erinn, many people discuss and sing Mabinogi.
    Perhaps there might be a song about you some day.

  • Did you know there were epic battles fought between humans and the forces of the Evil Fomors many ages ago?
    I guess that you are still too preoccupied with wrestling with the creatures in the dungeon to realize how horrific the Fomors were... At that time, they overwhelmed humans in every aspect.
    No matter how many humans fought with better, more powerful weapons, no matter how hard they fought, they were no match for the sheer power the Fomors displayed. So many people lost their lives fighting against this force.
    But despite the terrible odds, humans never gave up, and the battle against the Fomors became more intense than ever.
    Many heroes appeared, and courageously fought against the Fomors, finally defeating them under God's blessing. As a result, humans were able to reclaim their lost lands...
    Erinn, the world we live in now, was defended with the blood and sacrifices of those herioc warriors.
    Many bards composed and sang songs about these mighty warriors, and even more people spread them to other lands...
    That is the song we are talking about today, Mabinogi. It's the song written as a tribute to our brave heroes, and to praise God's blessings...

  • Well, all I know about Mabinogi is that it's a song written and sung by the bards. You could say it's an old folklore inherited and sung by generations of bards.
    I think Priest Meven may know more about Mabinogi than I do. Chief Duncan might be another person you could talk to.
    Would you mind asking them?

  • You seem fairly interested in Mabinogi. As far as legends about swords and magic are concerned, it is better to learn from word of mouth than from dry books.
    As you know, when a story moves on from people to people, it is naturally exaggerated with its original meaning distorted.
    One of the best ways to keep the original form of a story intact is to preserve it through music.
    Of course, that doesn't mean that the story is delivered in exactly the same form. But it would be helpful for you to understand Mabinogi this way.

  • Mabinogi is a song that wandering bards have sung for many years. It is mostly made of stories of legendary heroes. I believe you must have heard of them before.
    The great king, Nuadha who fought against the evil armies even after losing one arm. Or perhaps about Lugh, the God of light, who brought peace back to this world after fighting off the Fomor.
    Or how about the story about the evil wizard Jabchiel, who sold his soul to the evil creatures.

  • Mabinogi? Congratulations! You pronounced it correctly. Tee hee. A lot of people actually say it wrong without knowing it.
    Mabinogi is an ancient story about heroes and brave warriors. The stories are usually made into songs so people can remember them easily.
    Ah, but Bebhinn may not remember them, considering her poor musical skills. Ha ha.

  • Wow, you knew about this? Mabinogi... As a matter of fact, people have different ideas about it depending on where they come from.
    In the good old days of mine, I traveled to many different places. I was really surprised seeing how people from different regions talk differently about Mabinogi.
    Some of them say it is an ancient lullaby with a story in it.
    Others say it's a song of praise dedicated to the heroes and warriors who build Erinn of this day.
    And I heard from someone that any song can be Mabinogi as long as it is old and sung by bards.
    Oh, I am sorry. Am I talking to much? It might have been boring, but I'm just telling you what I heard.

  • Hmm... Mabinogi is a song written and sung to praise mighty warriors. It's a song about the story of fearless warriors who fought against the evil Fomors in endless battles a long time ago.
    You know, Mabinogi is like a living, breathing creature. It keeps growing and evolving, its contents revised, extended, sung and heard through endless generations.
    So, who knows? If you become a great warrior yourself, you may someday have a song dedicated to your heroic efforts. People will write and sing about you...

  • A song of heroes passed down from legends is called Mabinogi. A lot of them are related to a war that took place a long time ago... a song of legends, I believe, does not have to be strictly related to war stories, you know? I'll be waiting for your Mabinogi as well.

  • Mabinogi is a song sung by bards about the heroes and the old gods.
    It's a song that commemorates those who fought against the Fomors to establish the peaceful world we live in today.
    Occasionally, we get books that talk about such stories here. Take a look. Hehe.

  • Mabinogi is a tale of heroes, but it is also the history of bloodshed between humans and the evil Fomors as well as between humans themselves, woven into a worldly tune.
    If you keep listening to such songs, one day your soul will become ill and your body will suffer.
    Lord Lymilark once said this,
    'If ye hate someone, your emotions wound not the hated but your souls.
    Feeling and embracing a wounded soul is a time of great pain however quick it may be. '
    I do not deny Mabinogi, but... Please keep this in mind as you listen to it.

  • There are many different ways to pass on knowledge about one's life experiences from one generation to another. The most effective way of all would be through tales indeed.
    ...As short stories are aligned against each other in some kind of order, everything begins to gain significance and start to mean something. Older generations pass down their life experiences to the following generations in this way. People who have listened to these stories, added their own experiences and then passed it on again to the next generation...
    There are many people who overlook the effectiveness of such old tales as an educational tool, and my guess is that they'd never heard any bedtime stories when they were young and growing up... Hahaha...
    ...Am I boring you to death? Well, anyways, still, old tales are for kids. if you are an adult and still hold on to these kinds of stories then perhaps that is a problem, don't you think?

  • It's a praise song that praises the heroes of the past. Being a war hero, however, also means the hero has slayed enough lives to become a hero.
    Of course, anyone who became a hero by battling against the Fomors needs to be commended for the sacrifices the hero has made, but among those heroe, are some who have had their hands in a secret, silent feud against Humans... and that worries me...

    Rather than accomplishing some heroic act just to die soon after, perhaps it is more important to do as much as you can while you're living... Don't you agree?

    Nowadays, a few songs are claimed to be from Mabinogi, but I think those songs aren't from Mabinogi...I don't think they are original songs
    However, in my opinion, those songs can be called as Mabinogi one day. Player. Your songs can be Mabinogi, too...
