[Quest Pack] [14 Quests] - Rise of the Chaos God

Postby bastianbux » Tuesday March 5th, 2013 11:37pm

So I got very excited about the revelation of the 14 new (to us!) quests found in the Japanese base game and decided to localize them and tidy them up in HeroScribe and such.

I know there there are people out there who will want an extremely faithful word-for-word version and then there will be people who will want a VERY localized version (European names replacing the Japanese ones and such). This version is neither! :D And of course I'm fine with people making there own versions. But here's mine!

I'm very excited about this, but please tell a little more about your translation philosophy. What do you mean by neither? Are the names all original Japanese?

@Jareth ( :P ) I meant to explain that a bit better in the first post, but somehow I didn't. My localization philosophy is to take the intent of the Japanese HQ quest designer seriously but to make it 1) more aligned with the NA/European versions (the opening text revised to read as notes from Mentor, etc) and to make some of the names a little less Engrishy. So I changed "Neef" to "Nifon" which is sort of a play on "Nippon" (what Japan calls itself) and "Jipon" (another archaic name for Japan). Basically my intention is that my version of this quest pack takes place in the "Far East" of the Old World. So I'll keep names that are obviously intended to sound Japanes (like "Princess Miko" and such) the same, but I'll be changing the attempts at English-y names which I feel don't quite cut the mustard "Glindeddo" for instance) to something a bit more Euro ("Glindel" perhaps).

ha! So Miku is the Japanese Ragnar xD awesome. Good job on the quests! I'll wait untill they're complete, and download the complete PDF. drathe will very likely host it ;)
Any ideas for the front cover? Even though it's basically the base game, I feel this project should get it's own Eastern old world themed cover, instead of the box cover. All the quests are very different after all.
Are the standard monster stats in the JP version equal to the US or the EU monsters?

I love your names so far. Glindel sounds perfect. small typo in Q1: "stollen" and Q3: one red DIE. dice is plural. mored back = moved back?

Great job bastianbux! Thanks for the sharing...

wow, I didn't knew that it has totally different quests... I mean about the maps and the quest “events” not about the main story ex Miku = Ragnar ( :lol: )

But I found that they look kind of easy, even if we are talking for the US rules.

This is really incredible! A great contribution to the HQ community! We are actually getting new OFFICIAL quests!

Could I ask you a favor? While writing the quests, could you compile a list of named miniatures- preferably mentioning both the original name and the "Euro" name. They need to go into the list of special monsters:
http://www.yeoldeinn.com/hqforum/viewtopic.php?f=143&t=848

use this format:

Name[JA]/Name[EU] (Miniature)
e.g.
Glindeddo[JA]/Glindel[EU] (Dwarf) - Or whatever race Glindel is :lol:

I've gotta come back and fully read these - don't have time now as it is my bed time and all.
I do have one concern with them...the rewards are EXTREMELY high. Just a thought.

It is nice to see some new quests though...always nice to see new quests - they look very well done.
Magic beats the blade every time...unless you are caught asleep or else-wise occupied.

I tried to go a similar way when I translated the first 8 quests into German and got hammered for it!

Great work all around so far!

Thanks so much for catching those typos. I'll fix them and re-upload tonight.

About the cover: I agree it should have a new cover with a Far East flair. I'll see if I can cobble together something that represents that. I'm also trying to think of a title for quest pack. I'm thinking something like "Rise of the Chaos God" or "The Chaos God Awakens" or something since that seems to be the main plot.

I'm adapting it (monster stats and all) into the NA version, but I'm fine with either someone else re-adapting it to EU standards or if no one gets around to it by the time I'm done with the NA I'll do a EU version.
