    This would mean it's 'Dog of Moon' ( so somekind of Lune? ) , but this Hound is used as 'Chaser'. So maybe you can translate for me 'Moon Chaser' then for First Tongue?

      • Okay, I just found about Cerro Rico. 'Rich mountain.' It's a mountain in Bolivia found 500 years ago that the Spanish dug out so much silver from that it apparently destabilized the Chinese economy at the time. And working in it was, apparently, notoriously deadly. When the Spanish ran out of indigenous people to put through the mine, they brought over slaves from other lands to do it. It's apparently still deadly today, and is called, 'The mountain that eats men.'

        So I'm basically asking for three translations. One, 'Rich mountain,' another, 'the mountain that eats men,' and another that I'm not sure about. Basically, to a werewolf, this thing is pumping poison into the world, into the hands of their enemies and making the world more dangerous to them in general. So an appropriate, cursed name for something like that.

          • Hey, guys.

            I'm looking for First Tongue names for the cWoD Fera breeds ( I couldn't find anything in the dictionary or this thread).

            Nagah (snake/serpent), Rokea (shark), Nuwisha (coyote), Gurahl (bear), Bastet (cat), Ananasi (spider), Ratkin (rats), Corax (crow/raven/corvids), Kitsune (fox), Mokole (dragon/lizard), and Camazotz (bat), Ajaba (hyena).

            Ideally, they would be short version, like "Uratha" is for werewolves.

            Thanks!

                  • It's been a long time since I asked for translations, but I have three new ones to request.

                    First Wolf ( from War Against The Pure)

                    The Seeker of Agony ( an Idigam I am working on who believes that fear is weakness and that pain and extensive mutilation/reconstruction of a being can 'cure" it)

                    Let No Opportunity To Rise Above The Unworthy Go Unclaimed. ( The spiritual Ban of Danu-Ur, the tribal totem of my homebrew Pure Tribe the Kukthidum, or Fang-Shapers)

                    • Hi all, I would like a translation for "the First Sword". "The" is included as a reference that it'll be used as a title. I looked through the provided documents and found references for "first" and "sword", but honestly I'm a little confused by the sheet layout and not sure how to put it all together Could I get help with a translation please?

                        Sumerian doesn't seem to have a known definite article like 'the', as such. Certainly not as listed in the dictionary spreadsheet. You could substitute 'That' or 'This', or grab one of the unknown meanings for your own use, or look through other translations to see how other people - like Sikla Alkis) got around the problem.

                        First Wolf ( from War Against The Pure)
                        Perhaps something like Mergha-Ur.
                        The Seeker of Agony
                        Inlu-Namging : Abundant Abuse Seeker?
                        Heh, that's a tricky one without simple words for pain or hurt or agony!

                          Well I am never one for wanting easy names xD I do have a request for you though if you are free.

                            • I have a new batch of names and titles awaiting translation, so i'd be supergrateful if anyone could do it:

                              Poplar - which i was translating to myself as "Silver cortex" (i'd appreciate both translations)
                              Magpie - which i was thinking of as "Black and white winged thief" (again, i'd like the two of them if possible)

                              Some titles:

                              "Dark One of the Keen Eye"
                              "Riches and Despaired Ones"
                              "Pyramid below the Waters"
                              "Silent Stalker"
                              "Death from Above"
                              "Laden Eye"
                              ·"Crooked Man"

                              Thank you in advance! ^^
