Translation Notes

Important! Please read this and my Translation Disclaimer before reading the novel.

Character Names

I don’t have the slightest idea on how to properly transliterate names, so I mainly do it in a very straightforward way. Some examples:

  • 长安 becomes Chang An.
  • 索莱木 becomes Suo Laimu. (A more readable way to write it would be Solemu.)
  • 卡佐 becomes Ka Zuo.
Tribe Names
  • Azure Dragon (青龙) – Before, I transliterated this as “Qinglong” tribe, but I realized later that doing so strips off the majesty of the “Azure Dragon.”

    The Azure Dragon is said to be a legendary creature, who is part of the Four Symbols, also known as the Four Spirits of heaven. It represent spring and the east.
  • Jushan (巨山) – literally means Big Mountain or Great Mountain tribe. It’s the only tribe, so far, that I’m writing in pinyin instead of using English
  • Black Eagle (黑鹰) – Before, I translated this as Black Hawk, since 鹰 could mean either hawk, eagle, or falcon; generally, any predatory bird.
Other Notes

The Song Sung by the Elder in Chapter 1

The first translator didn’t translate this, so I translated it instead, for the song seems very important in the story. Read the translation.
