Re: DE translations needed

Katharina is right but i would prefer

Portal to Runewick, the realm of knowledge
Portal nach Runewick, dem Reich des Wissens


(( for me there is a BIG difference between knowledge and wisdom -> and Runewick isnt for me the realm of wisdom, sorry ))

Lorewise Runewick is the realm of wisdom and magic.

Re: DE translations needed

All towns are different than their descriptions on the page. This can't be and even not should be changed just because these are descripitons of mechanical foundations not a shape made by active characters. Like a character who follows rules of honor is not forced to live in Cadomyr and character who wants to become most of riches can be citizen of other than Galmair. These are rp-choices.

Re: DE translations needed

I'll jump on the band wagon and note that I found it kind of weird that Runewick and Cadomyr are realms of values/ideas while Galmair is a realm of a 'condition'.
Especially the German translation "Wohlstand", directly translating to 'being wealthy' (which Galmair is right now, in relation to the other Realms), is something that can be lost. What if that happens?

Re: DE translations needed

Perhaps you are right, Q-wert. Instead of describing in this form Galmair that looks like description of a condition or rich state, DEVS can use different word/words while not step outside of mechanical shape. But I would not say this is a big issue.

I would suggest - > The realm of the power of money.
Or something what sounds similar but it's even shorter.

Re: DE translations needed

"Wohlstand" or "prosperity" does not just mean to have a lot of money, but describes a high life-quality, which is a an idea just like like wisdom and honour.

An amount of wealth granting economic security as well as a high standard of living (the official definition of the word) is a condition of having something material. Something material that can be taken away, making it a condition that can be lost.
If some place is brought to economic and individual ruin by whatever (maybe it has been plundered, burnt and the population been enslaved), this place does lose its prosperity (or "Wohlstand"). However, its people can still act with honour or wisdom.

If we want to get into semantics, Cadomyr surely has plenty of people who are not honorable and Runewick isn't exactly full of very 'wise' people.

These are just broad concepts and I feel semantics are biased opinions and really aren't needed to help develope a game. Just giving translations would've been helpful too.
