    Okay --

    I am a huge gaming geek, but I am also one that is more obsessed with knowledge and the educational aspects than the magical powers and dice rolling :)

    What does the phrase on the crest say? I know "vincit omnia", but not "arbitrium" :wondering:

    Bonus points if you guess what this crest belongs to :p

    It means "arbitration* conquers all."

    (*An arbitrator's decision.)

    An arbitratium is an arbitrator's decision.

    Arbitrium can also mean "authority", i.e. the power of arbitrating over disputes. That's probably what it's supposed to mean here.
