Elven, of course. :)

Well, then.

Were my name to be Elven, it would have to be Angcuru Oinamelar. Mostly because that's the name of my alter-ego character, who I am beginning to write about in the storyhour forum. Check out Echoes of Tradegy if you're interested.

You, (judging by your Avatar) would be Carnimlanatshee, which means 'pink-clothed fairy'.;)

Love the sig, BTW.

Where can one get a copy of the dictionary/program you mention?

I have misplaced my copy of the Silmarillion, but it sounds like this dictionary is even more broad in scope than the Quenya and Sindarin info from there. Is that correct?

Hail, Brother!

Just had a wicked idea... gonna change the name of Saberhagen's twelve Swords to elven! Then I'll slip them into my campaign under the elven names, and my players will NEVER guess what the heck they're messing with... *echoing wicked laugh crescendo*

So, if you would do me the honors of translating all of these (if you don't have a name, give me the closest approximation in meaning that you can find. If there isn't anything even close, then I'll get by without it.)

Coinspinner

Wayfinder

Sightblinder

Dragonslicer

Stonecutter

Shieldbreaker

Doomgiver

Woundhealer

Townsaver

Soulcutter

Farslayer

The Mindsword

If you can get at least half of those translated, I'll have enough to go on. Thanks!

Hey...I'd like to know what the translation of "Hater of All" in elvish is.

A long time ago, I made a party for the old SSI 'Curse of the Asure Bonds' game. I was messing around, and made a dwarf named "Elf Hater" an elf named "Dwarf Hater" and so forth. The last character I made was a paladin...and I named him "Hater of All" I was thinking it would be cool to call an NPC that in elvish.

Thanks

Hey, Angcuru! Best timing ever, as my PC group will be venturing into elven lands next adventure! Here's what I need:

- Half-Elf
- Ghost Spider(s) (aka Phase Spider)
- Wishing Stone (a huge black opal holding a wish spell)
- Bladesinger (my half-elf rog/wiz will pick up her first bls level)
- Queen of Elves
- "Corrupted by the Spider" (an elf wizard who turned to Lolth)
- "Prodigal Daughter" (my half-elf PC, who is about to rediscover her elven roots, since she never knew her elf father)

Thanks a gazillion!

And what does your name mean?

"Pink-clothed fairy," huh? Kind of frilly, isn't it? And I was going more for the angel feel. Hm . . .

Thanks. :)

Very much so, yes.

If you have Kazaa, do a document search on Elven Dictionary and ONLY GET THE PDF.

Dark Eternal, what are saberhagen's twelve swords? i.e., what books are they from?

They're writeups of swords forged by the Roman Gods and sent to the world of the mortals. Each blade has it's own unique powers, and the gods view the changing of hands of the swords to be a bit of a competition. Very nice stuff.

Angcuru means 'Iron Skill', I.E. greatly skilled, etc.

well, then: Carnimlanat Feaina'rammavoite

You're welcome.;)

This is the end, the bringer of destruction has been brought to this world.

What, Angcuru? Been getting no elf name lovin' for 9 days now? Let me help you out. :) Besides, I could really use some good elf names for a campaign I'm working on.

Are these too long?


Dawn's First Knight
Red Sword of the Lion (Griffon if it's there, Cat if neither exists)
Displeasing to the Gods
Friend of the King
Eater of Kin
First Shield of the Innocent
Last One Out the Door (Trust me, there's a reason for this one!)
Beginning of Magic
Root of the Castle (Keep, Home, Tree)


And perhaps, a few kingdom names
Land of Vigilance (watchfulness, you know the theme)
Gathering of Friends
Awaiting the Beginning.

Thank you in advance, and I hope I can give your linguistics some exercise. :)

OK... I have one for you... only this time it's not for a specific person. What I need is the name for an entire Elven culture that is matriarchal in nature... and is somewhat based on the Amazons from Greek myth.
