Could some one please help me translate the following into any language that uses the roman alphabet:
Dragons go home
Age of Sigma sucks
3rd edition rules
and then in khuzdul
at least we had wizards then
Khuzdul doesn't have enough words (attested or otherwise) to be able to do your last request I'm afraid. All of Tolkien's languages use the Roman alphabet unless we're transcribing them into Tengwar/Cirth etc.
This is Sindarin. If you want Quenya, you need to pop over to the Official Quenya thread or hope that Gladhaniel sees this thread
'Dragons go home' - how rude do you mind it being?Emlyg ego
= Dragons be gone
Emlyg = Dragons
ego = be gone, f*** off!
If that's not appropriate, the closest I can give you is (and this is rather literal as opposed to the above)Emylg gwao na i mbair gîn
= Dragons go to your homes
gwao = go
na = to
i mbair gîn = your homes
The other two don't translate, as I'm sure you can appreciate. There's words for 'age' and 'third' but beyond that your requests are what we call 'English idioms', they wouldn't translate well into some modern languages let alone languages like Sindarin - e,g, Andrann Sigmar
= Sigmar's Age, Age of Sigmar but there's no way of saying 'to suck'.
