ConBTG 1 [game thread]

Postby hashi » 2009-10-14, 4:31

Ok, I started a new thread so it can be easily followed.

I'm sure most of you are aware of how this game works fundamentally, but there are a few changes in this version.

Please read!!

Basic Rules
1) You have 5 days to complete the text
2) You must send the text to the next person and myself.

Specific Rules
1) You must use your own conlang
2) In the email to the other person please include:
- The text translated into your language
- Enough notes on grammar (can be in the form of an attachment if necessary) to be understood
- A glossary/dictionary of the words used in the text.
3) In the email to ME:
- The same as above.
- The native and English names of the conlang you will be translating it to.
- The text also in English (this is important!)
4) You will be translating multiple times, so please do not refer to the previous text you received, translate what you are given.

Ok so. Preferably I would like to know the THREE TWO (list is getting too long) conlangs you will be translating to now. If you want, they can all be the same. I need to draw up the list.

Game started: 16th October 2009 20:37 (GMT+13)
Game Ended: 28th November 2009 14:41 (GMT+13)

I'll stick to Luchian / Léwcs :)

EDIT: Just one thing... if lumiel gives me his translation, and immediately following is my translation back to him again... wouldn't it be kind of wrong if he decides to use the same conlang in both cases?

And if so, when do we actually start?

Sweet. I might just slot you in then. Would you want to do it three times? If so, all three times with Sjal (I assume the latter question is a yes :) )

Maybe I'm not reading the directions correctly...
but, so what we have to do if pick three of our own conlangs (or two, or just one) and then created 3 phrases and then messege them to you, then you'll put them on the list? then the person who is after us on the list we do the same too, only without the information that we're only supposed to send you?

tomii515 & im gunna use Japrasmei (which is not my newest conlang's official name, but its the one I'm using now until I can think of a better name)

Nearly. Do you know how the Broken Translation Game works? (If not, take a look at the Broken Translation Game 12, it explains the rules on the first page, the rules in this one are slightly different as mentioned above.). You will receive the text in someone else's conlang along with the notes. You have to then translate it into English and your own conlang (and Include the notes too). You send one copy to the next person in the chain (WITHOUT the English) and one copy to me (With the English). If you have anymore questions just ask :)

Ok I shall add you to the list.

Actually since you changed it to two, keep the first as Japrasmei, but change my second conlang to Kyovantic

I'll just use Jzacdo for my conlang, as my second one is not ready yet and i just started a third one.

I'll be translating the text into Þríaöna. If the next person knows Swedish and Icelandic he/she can probably understand the most of it but I'll send the necessary vocabulary and grammar info along with the translation. :)

/EDIT: I'll do Þríaöna two times as it is the far most developed of my conlangs.

Haha woops, Mended. I've also moved you down the chain slightly so you don't have to translate so quickly after another.

Haha similar to mine. If you know German and Swedish you can verstô mine quite easily.

We're pretty much all set. Six hours till closing time, then tomorrow I shall send out the text.

A wee bit about the text:
It is very short, probably 2 or 3 sentences, it is really random too so I expect you will need to invent new words for this text. Anyway, all in all it shouldn't be TOO hard, but let's just see what happens.

I couldn't wait.

The text is already on it's way.

If you CAN, try and provide the document in pdf form, otherwise doesn't matter, a lengthy email will work. Just remember I need the English too, but the next in line does not.

Oh and if you get stuck on something, do not ask the other person, just try your best.

Good luck :)
