Phexian Sayings

Postby Uriel718 » Tue Mar 20, 2018 4:43 pm

I'm looking for some sayings that could be used by servants of the God Phex. They don't have to be from any official source and the sayings can be from both merchants and thieves. The sayings could for example be used by a thieves guild as a passcode or a simple greeting.

From Drakensang River of Time I got the saying "Phex gives you what you can take, and takes from you that which you cannot keep" or something.

Thanks in advance!

The most popular one would be along the lines of "Phex helps those, who help themselves"

In my groups its also common to use "phexible" for flexible . Especially when its about phexible morality.

"Phex take the lead and make room in that alley"

"You got my back this time, grey one?"

"Phex make me reach my dying day, rich, drunk and a little late"


Its also common to bet and banter with the god. "Baal al-Saquira, lord of thieves, i bet i can talk this buffoon into buying this, quicker than anyone may make him wise"

"Lend me your luck and i will pay your share twofold. "

Another example given are counting /trading prayers

"he said 12
he meant 10
he wants 8
its worth 6
i'd give 4
i say 2"

Everywhere but the tulamidian lands, which tend to mystify a bit more, it would be quite short, pragmatic and more or less on eye-level.

  • Trick 9 (instead Trick 17... 9 is the number of phex)
  • Phex gives you what you take and takes what you let take.
  • Many roads lead to Phexen's hoard!
Please excuse my bad English, I'm a beginner.
