Durana Genesis text

Please note that since I have yet to find a good book or website
which can explain the correct notation for sounds I have, for simplicity
sake, done the following: lowercase vowels are the soft sound (ah,
eh, ih, uh) and the capital vowels are hard sounds (A, E, I, O).
Since the explanation of the translations would be very messy, and
I am unsure of how many will be curious I shall skip them for now.
Hope you enjoy a peak into Durana.
