Intro:


Our characters are making headway into translating the Dragonkin language, but certain instances of the language are omitted from the translation process, notably spoken lines.

This thread seeks to remedy that; here we will discuss and attempt to translate and interpret any instances of the Dragonkin language.

Grammar:


Transcribed from the Dragonkin Primer.
The language of the Dragonkin is as blunt as they are. From what I can gather, the sentence structure is direct and simple. I believe it follows a structure like this:-

Subject - Adjective if required - Action modifier - Action - Object.

So sentences like 'Odysseus went for a brisk walk in the park' would become 'Odysseus brisk walk in park'.

It seems that they really don't like to mince words, which may explain why much of their written language is only a handful of short excerpts.

Additionally I have encountered a few references to dragons that seems to have almost been given titles. The format for these appear to be Colour-Dragon-Title/Descriptor.

Interpretation:


Dragonkin Primer:

Original message details are unavailable.
The Green Dragons have been relocated to Forinthry dungeon.


Forinthry Dungeon, during One of a Kin:

Original message details are unavailable.
The Green Dragons were weak. Combining dragons with metal to make stronger dragons. We relocate to the southern dungeon of Brimhaven.


Brimhaven Dungeon, during One of a Kin:

Original message details are unavailable.
The first Dragon was the Queen Black Dragon. This first Black Dragon produces better spawn, Kerapac needs to collect more eggs. We relocate back to his lab.


Mysterious statue, during One of a Kin:

This is mostly gibberish for now.

Kerapac, during One of a Kin:

Original message details are unavailable.
Manifest energy from the Catalyst with Dragonkin portals.


Adamant Dragon dungeon mural:

Original message details are unavailable.
The metal dragons were weak. Kerapac abandons the idea of metal dragons. Calls them a failure. Forcae will continue to research. Forcae is the better researcher. Forcae is the better leader!


Kethsi mural:

Original message details are unavailable.
The Dragonkin razed Kethsi. Kethsi fell. My research will be safe from the Necrosyrtes here. There is a great portal (World Gate) here. There is residual energy from the Catalyst here. This is a better place for my research.


Ulthven Kreath murals:

Original message details are unavailable.
Kranon opened a portal
Black arms rose from the portal... Killed several dragonkin...
The dead rose, but they were weak! Kranon was taken into the portal.
This was a failure... Many died... The place has been destroyed... And sunk... We're safe again...


The Shadow Reef:

Original message details are unavailable.
Taraket:
Death portal. I rule the dead. Rise, superior dead!
Rise, dead!

Kranon:
Black holes protect me. Yield to the arms of death.
