High adventure in a world of magic = Συναρπαστικές περιπέτειες σ'ένα Μαγικό Κόσμο (at least that's what it says on the box cover)
Kellar's Keep = Ο Πύργος του Κέλαρ (that's the right translation for this)
Game System = Παιχνίδι Σύστημα (instead of Παιχνιδι Σύστημα)

Home = Αρχική Σελίδα (also just "Αρχική" can be used, it's used in many of greek websites)
News = Νέα
Contents = Περιεχόμενα
Forum = Forum (No one translates that)
Gallery = Gallery (the word "Εικόνες" could be used which means pictures or images)
Links = Σύνδεσμοι
Credits = Credits

For quests and tiles it would be best to use the words that are in the actual greek rulebook and questbook which unfortunately I don't own. My guess for quests is "Περιπέτειες" but it's not sure.

Thank you! I've added the new translations and edited the previous ones.

The game system rules and quest book can be found here: http://www.yeoldeinn.com/el-system.php
I can't read it and have no idea which word would be the ones for Quests or Tiles. :?

Quests = 'Αθλοι (which actually means deeds or accomplishments but that's the word in the booklet)
Tiles = Πλακάκια

Also the text when you hover the mouse over to any of these should write the following according to the english ones:
Retun to Home Page = Επιστροφή στην Αρχική Σελίδα
Recent News = Πρόσφατα Νέα
Table of Contents = Τράπεζα Περιεχομένων
Links to other HeroQuest websites = Σύνδεσμοι σε άλλα website με HeroQuest

Welcome to Ye Olde Inn = Καλώς Ήρθατε στο Ye Olde Inn

Quests are «Άθλοι» and Tiles in the Quest Book are translated as «Πλακάκια» but I think it is better to use the word «Πλακίδια» because expresses the scale of the pieces. As we say “small tiles” (=Πλακίδια) and “tiles like those are used on walls or floors” (=Πλακάκια). So, I choose “Πλακίδια” for tiles.

Thanks guys! |_P

I must say, ελληνικά was the last language I thought would get translated, that is until the 日本語 version was discovered. This is cool! :D

Thanks for the offer to better the Greek experience at the Inn. Right now the translation effort is put on hold as drathe no longer has the time to commit to these efforts.

What the (ambitious) translation project needs to continue is a new server; this would allow more members to participate in entering the work. If/when this comes about I hope you will still be here to help.

Server? What needs are there? I pay for hosting and it's not getting utilized very well.

First, thanks for the supoort! :D

Ideally, the Inn can one day be hosted by a server that allows more people to edit pages for translation efforts. As it stands right now, only administrators have that privilege. That puts a huge workload on drathe.

If/when the Inn moves to a new server, the best result would allow more of our community to enter and edit Quests on the homepage. I imagine other contributions are also possible.
