Default I finally know what the unused audio said

About the unused audio 005_VonCroy6_Lara2.
I always wonder what it said. The only result I can find is this:

It's a mystery what Shenlagh is. Today I found it's possible to be Chenla, the kingdom before Angkor. So the audio is

Von Croy: The craftsmanship of the Chenla, lost to mankind, as sand sifting through the fingers of an open hand. Does it not move you, child?
Lara: I'll break out the camera, when we get to the Iris.

Oh this is a cool find! It's certainly plausible that Werner was referring to Chenla all along.

I just added your finding to my TR4 transcript.

I also keep a transcript, basically copied from other websites. Save the following code into an HTML file (with .html file extension), that's it. It contains the transcript for the audios in the audio folder. It does not contain those in the fmv folder.

        <span class="JeanYves">More information, Oui? I believe some of the armor could be here in the town. A local collector had a small exhibition and was rumored to own a piece. It is hard to say if this is true. The man was a fool. A while back he vanished, leaving the exhibition boarded up. So if Von Croy hasn't got to it, perhaps this would be the place to begin.</span></p>

      <p><span class="Audio">092_minilib2</span><br />
        <span class="JeanYves">Lara, I've been doing some reading and it is highly probable that some of the armor is hidden down in the catacombs themselves. But you must take care. Word of Von Croy's men fleeing from the tunnels has reached me. Seth's apparitions have begun to move into the city, gathering at the ancient sites. You must hurry and find the library.</span></p>
      <p class="Level">Alexandria</p>
      <p><span class="Audio">093_minilib3</span><br />
        <span class="JeanYves">Greetings, Lara. Remember, somewhere in the library will be the means to guide you to the location of Cleopatra's palaces. Von Croy will not know you have found the library yet, but I have heard - through connections - that he has hired new local help and is doubly searching for another way in. For the moment we have the advantage, but I fear that we must move quickly if we are to stay ahead. Remember, the Great Library was very much like a university to ancient Alexandria. It will be full of knowledge, puzzles, and invention. You will need quick wits to get through. Good luck, my friend.</span></p>

        <span class="VonCroy">Hello, my dear. Another unannounced visit. I see you have found the scroll we unearthed. Interesting reading, ja?</span><br />
        <span class="Lara">Only interesting if you know what it refers to.</span><br />
        <span class="VonCroy">Yes, yes. Quite correct, my dear. The armor on its own is no more than a curiosity. But with the amulet and the ceremonial tablet, it becomes an important historical artifact predating the Bible by centuries.</span><br />
        <span class="Lara">There is more at stake here than the sum of the pieces, Von Croy. Ever heard of Armageddon? Unpleasant, even by your standards.</span><br />
        <span class="VonCroy">Rebinding the spirit of Seth, putting the armor on the statue at midnight at the turn of the millennium, so on and such like. I was never a believer in this magical hocus pocus.</span><br />

As it is, we must now be even more careful. He will become more desperate and thus more dangerous. Be on your guard. Use the artifact to get into the Cleopatra's palaces and find the rest of the armor. Tread carefully now, and not too much sightseeing, hmm?</span></p>

        <span class="JeanYves">Thank God you made it! Von Croy... I saw it myself. I would not have believed such a thing. He is possessed of Seth!</span><br />
        <span class="Lara">Get out of here, Jean. I have a feeling things may turn nasty.</span><br />
        <span class="JeanYves">He is digging under the Citadel into the Crusaders' vaults in search of the ceremonial tablet, the tablet which contains Seth's binding incantations. Be careful, Lara. I fear there are things in the vaults man was not meant to see.</span><br />
        <span class="Lara">I am not a man, Jean, and I am always very, very careful.</span><br />
        <span class="VonCroy">We have it. The ancient ceremonial tablet. Take it and prepare it and see if the Croft woman has arrived with our armor.</span></p>

        <span class="VonCroy">Come in, Lara. I have been expecting you. Come to me, child. Do not fear your old colleague. I merely require the armor that you hold in your possession.</span><br />
        <span class="Lara">And in return?</span><br />
        <span class="VonCroy">I will grant you vigor as those around you fall. You shall command the ultimate power: that of life or death over those you choose at your side. And in return they will bow at your feet and give worship.</span><br />
        <span class="Lara">Got my fair share of that already. And besides, give a jackal your hand and he'll bite off the whole arm.</span><br />
        <span class="Lara">Barking mad.</span></p>

        <span class="Lara">The inscription reads, "One night in dreaming came to me the spirit of the sphinx. In his passing, he spoke unto me words of great wisdom. 'Thutmosis, here is your true destiny: This land of Egypt is forever yours to rule. In return, protect me always from the sands of time. As you are, I must be free from head to toe, so that we both may see the divine beauty of creation.'"</span></p>
