Thanks, I'll work on these this evening. If anything sounds weird, we'll have to hope someone else will let us know. I certainly wouldn't know.

Common Elements:
High Adventure in a World of Magic -
In the Japanese version, the tagline/slogan was different. 立体迷宮RPGボードゲーム, or 3D Labyrinth RPG Board Game.

Searching around on the net reveals very little about the game, however I've found a few bloggers talking about it her or there. I don't think any expansions were released in Japan.

Why are some of the common elements that you want translated "Suggested to leave as-is", you don't want them translated?

I have a degree in Japanese, I am not a native speaker.

It has become a common consensus among those translating the European languages that any expansion that wasn't release in an area keep the English title on the Website. Possibly to avoid confusion as to what actually existed in stores.

Ahh, I understand.

I'll look around for more information on the Japanese sites regarding this. Expect if I find anything, it will almost assuredly not be written in English. Virtually nothing is written in the Latin Alphabet because many Japanese would struggle reading it. The image of the Japanese Heroquest box art is proof of this...

Much thanks. I'll update these translations tonight.

If you're searching for contents related to the Japanese version, most of it can be found here at the inn.
viewtopic.php?f=143&t=166&start=30#p14010

There are also a couple threads where members have translated the quests and rule book using google and then retranslating Google's results.
