Which is totally silly!

I am guilty of that.. I just think that anything in Finnish is mundane and boring and reminds me of real life. But there is no problem as long as english cards are available.

I totally get that and am sometimes at least somewhat guilty of it myself.

BUT Finnish actually has plethora of beautiful and evocative words and sayings and a good translation is a work very enjoyable.

THEN AGAIN This game has so many arcane terms which are very hard to translate and if you leave bunch of stuff, such as disciplines etc, untranslated the end result is most likely just a horrible mishmash.

Luckily though vast majority of local players are very fluent in english so playing the game as is poses no problem. The idea for translation was just a curiosity. Especially as it might be extremely easily produceable.

I think this game has already the poorest and ugliest try to "sound italian" (Palla Grande, Luccia Pacciola, Guisseppe the gravedigger just to mention some).

other terms of the rpg, translated in italian will sound ugly or very funny (just think about the plural blood bond, "vincula". in italian sounds like something related to sodomy.

I don't think that the cards need to be translated. of course all lore, fluff and rulebook should be

The Brazilian community, before the s#|¥ blow up, rejoiced with the idea. Since there were players actually already translating it, I am working with them now.

We will keep original card titles as suggested. Once I am done, I'll start working on the Spanish version.

I already have all the cards translated into Spanish except for the most recent VEKN expansions (the translation is not up-to-date with the current card text changes though).

We could work together on the Spanish translation of the cards that get green-lit for printing.

Keep in mind that all the cards are being reworded, so you may need to redo the work.
