Rider/Citizen of the Brass Storm-city - no word for brass or whirlpool

The Vortex/Whirlpool of Raging/Angry Fire - no words for votex or void

try to be more broad and less narrow in your description if at all possible, generic words work better, since I can only translate what's in the dictionary.

Drat!

There are some specifics that need to be specific, though -- like Efreet city is the Brass City, for example. There's no other classical name for it.

Anyway, thanks mucho for the other names -- they're going to add flavor to my campaign!

I hope you're still accepting requests... Mine is: Soulless one

What's up there, Sarevok? I'm acceptin requests as long as people keep making them.

no word for soul, so spirit will have to do.

Soulless One - Fean'nero' (spiritless one)
Neithanfea (one who goes without a spirit)

If i remember right, Anardil (Tar Aldarion)was a sailor and a prince of Numenorre who used to visit Middle Earth from time to time.
He became the fifth king of Numenorre.

(I'll leave the translation to Ironskill)

Actually, there is no Aldarion in Tolkien's world. The closest thing is Aldoron, one of the many names of Orome, Lord of the Forest.
(And no, that was not memorized, I just have the Silmarillion sitting on a shelf just above my computer.)
...do you have an actual request for a translation? or were you just commenting?

Sorry, I was thinking of Anardil. No dig intended dude.
I'm quoting from 'Unfinished tales of Numenorre and Middle Earth' by Chris Tolkien (JRRs son)


It's basically all the bits TTolkien never finished or got round to putting in The LotRs or The Silmarillon.
It's a must if you love Tolkien.

Here's one that would help me out Tree house in Sindar.

Cheers, Jay

You discovered me, Kivan! Now I have to call Tazok to torture you again... :D Thanks for the translation. If there's no word for Soul, I will need more translations:
Heartless one
Emotionless one
Unfeeling one
