整個暴走的更新進度啊。

超過一個月毫無動靜 vs 三天兩頭就出現更新」的小舖模式,毫無穩定性可言XD

這次的分量還是很夠,同樣不拖篇幅,所以就來吧哈哈:

=======

賽耳篇 Sel

你可以用艾歐鐸寫出一種更高等的程式語言。

You could write a higher-level programming language with AonDor.

 

艾歐鐸在碎池附近不被使用不單純是文化上的因素。

AonDor isn't used around Shardpool not only because of culture reasons.

 

伊嵐翠可以在別的地方用另一種艾歐符文被創造出來。

Elantris could be made with different Aon and in another place.

 

災罰在某些部分影響了埃瑞。

  註:埃瑞(IRE)是<祕密歷史 Secret History>裡面,一群在意識界蓋了城堡,想要奪走存留碎力的伊嵐翠人。

Reod affected IRE in some way.

 

霍德在伊嵐翠卷末對話的御靈(Skaze)有個未公開的名字。

  註:參見<伊嵐翠十周年紀念版>的卷末彩蛋,那顆黑色甜瓜狀的球體其實就是一個御靈;跟侍靈是類似的存在,但侍靈是奉獻的力量殘餘,而御靈是統治的力量殘餘。

The Skaze Hoid speaks to at the end of Elantris has an undisclosed name.

 

埃恩還在。未來會看到更多他的部分。

  註:埃恩是<伊嵐翠>中,瑞歐汀的侍靈。(整本書都在失神狀態)

Ien is still around. More on him in the future.

 

司卡德利亞篇 Scadrial

更強大的鎔金術師可以更快的燃燒金屬和擠出更多力量。他們可以更有效的運用它。(能者就更強了。) 他們跟碎神的聯繫也更強。

Stronger Allomancers can burn metals faster and squeeze more power out. They can use it more efficiently. (Savants even more so.) They are more Connected to the Shard.

 

偉恩模仿別人個性的能力只是個技巧。

Wayne's ability to copy personalities is just skill.

 

我們最後大概會看到每一種複合術的效果。

  註:複合術...再解釋一次。如果一個人的鎔金術跟藏金術剛好屬於同一種金屬,則他可以"燃燒自己的金屬意識",這時釋放出來的力量將會是藏金術能力,而不是鎔金術。而且這樣的力量強度將會是原來存量的十倍。

  所以,舉金複合師的例子而言,金在藏金術可以中儲存健康。如果今天他儲存了x量的健康,並且用鎔金術燃燒這份金意識,那就會對外產生10x的健康;而如果這10x的健康又被儲存起來,再燃燒就能產生100x的健康...以此類推,沒多久這個人就幾乎打不死了(統御主的不死來源之一)

  這是我最後一次在小舖解釋複合術了(認真)

We will probably see all variations of compounding, eventually.

 

血統間的混雜不會產生新的鎔金金屬能力。

Mixing blood lines does not allow for new Allomantic metals.

 

從很小的時候開始碰觸連繫(Connection)的金屬意識,沒有辦法限制靈魂的年紀。

  註:連繫是硬鋁可以儲存的金屬意識能力。連繫是寰宇中兩個個體之間關係更緊密的一種羈絆。

Tapping Connection constantly from a very young age to limit Spiritual age isn't feasible.

 

克羅斯跟坎得拉很類似---他們的魂魄都被授予過的尖刺所扭曲。在寰宇中,他們的肉體會試著配合魂魄,因此一個扭曲的魂魄會在心智和身體上都造成深遠的影響。

Koloss and Kandra are similar- their souls are being distorted by an invested spike. In the cosmere, the body will attempt to match the soul, and so a twisted soul can have profound effects on both mind and body.

 

布蘭登有計畫寫個網路龐克時代的迷霧之子系列,但要他有時間才會寫。

  註1:網路龐克(cyberpunk)又稱為資訊龐克,電腦龐克。是一種特別強調虛擬現實和人工智慧等元素的題材。(例如<駭客任務>、<攻殼機動隊>這樣)

  註2:順便提一下,XX龐克基本上就是將XX的特色跟虛構世界的社會特色做融合,或是極度強調XX的效果。常見的還有蒸氣龐克(steampunk);山神說颶光系列是一種魔法龐克(magicpunk)

Brandon has toyed with the idea of a cyberpunk era Mistborn, but won't get to it unless he has time.

 

儘管特雷(Trell)在迷霧之子第一系列中就被提到,布蘭登並沒有在那時就規畫這個名字的後續角色。

Though Trell was mentioned in the first Mistborn book, Brandon didn't work out his future role until later

 

滅絕跟存留能聽見/跟人對話的能力跟他們創造人的方式有關。

  註:司卡德利亞的人類是存留跟滅絕的碎力產物,也就是說所有司卡德利亞人都是存留跟滅絕的力量延伸。既然祂們可以控制碎力,也就可以控制這些產物/人民。

Ruin's and Preservation's abilities to hear/speak to people was related to the way they created people.

 

哀悼之環(Bands of Mourning)包含十六種金屬的金屬意識。

  註:哀悼之環是統御主當年讓自己不死的強大藏金術手環。這東西到新世紀中好像還有留下來。

The Bands of Mourning contained metalminds of all 16 metals.

 

把血金尖刺封在鋁裡面可以避免它腐朽。沒人這麼試過。

  註:基於滅絕的原旨,血金尖刺如果處在"沒有刺在靈魂上"的狀態,單純放在那邊,會自己腐朽掉。

Encasing a hemalurgic spike in aluminum might help keep it from decaying. Nobody has tried it.

 

當沼澤認同瑪拉席"正在做他兄弟的工作",他指的是倖存者的事蹟---而不是凱西爾現在正在做的事。他可能會(也可能不會)認為凱西爾自己正在做"凱西爾會做的事"。

When Marsh approves of Marasi "doing his brother's work" he's referring to the lore of the Survivor - not necessarily what Kelsier is currently doing. He may (or may not) think that Kelsier himself is "doing Kelsier's work" anymore.

 

我們會在以後看到凱西爾跟沼澤的互動。(嗯哼對,凱西爾到現在都還在)

We will see a Kelsier-Marsh interaction in the future.

 

迷霧系列Era2裡面,法文的詞彙影響變少了,取而代之的是更多日耳曼語系的影響,因為文化/語言已經隨時間過去而改變了。

The French-influences are toned down in Mistborn era 2. More Germanic influences as time has passsed and the culture/language has changed.

 

納西斯篇 Nalthis

義卓司的復歸者會逃到哈蘭隼避免再次死去。

Idrian Returned have fled to Hallendren to avoid dying again.

 

維溫娜正在找法榭。在讀<引誓>的時候把罩子放亮點吧。

Vivienna is looking for Vasher. Keep your eyes wide open when reading Oathbringer.

 

贈與贊成利用駐氣餵養復歸神。

Endowment is agreeable with using Breath to feed the Returned.

 

羅沙篇 Roshar

在<引誓>的封面畫中,加絲娜在書中相應的畫面並不是真的在飛。

On the Oathbringer cover image, Jasnah is not actually flying in the scene in the book.

 

雷爪可以用各種形狀跟大小出現。(Peter教條x1)

  註:Peter Alhstrom是山神的助理,基本上他講的=山神講的 (除了一件事例外,就是霍德到底有沒有出現在<地獄森林>裡)

Thunderclasts can come in different shapes and sizes. (Word of Peter)

 

卡拉丁可能會說他跑了幾百次橋,但事實上大概只有幾十次。

Kaladin would probably say he made a few hundred bridge runs, but it was more like several dozen.

 

卡拉丁的名字來自阿拉伯文名字Kaled/Khaled

  註:這個名字應該譯成"哈立德"(根據上篇教條語音學XD所說,中東的Kh要發h的音)

Kaladin's name comes from Arabic Kaled/Khaled.

 

雅烈席語有希伯來文的根源;閃米語族的字根被用在晨頌裡面,而這對羅沙的語言有著巨大的影響。兩大語族(亞西須跟弗林)在我們聽起來都很阿拉伯風。雅烈席語的kh音是軟顎摩擦音,而亞西須的kk/q是無聲小舌音/塞音/破擦音或是小舌擠喉音。(我不行了這到底是甚麼XDDD) 雪諾瓦跟依瑞雅利是不同的語言。

Alethi has some Hebrew roots; Semitic language roots were used for Dawnchant, which had a huge influence on Rosharan languages. Both major language groups (Azish and Vorin) would sound very Arabic to us. Alethi 'Kh' is a voiceless velar fricative and Azish 'kk/q' is a voiceless uvular/stop/affricate or uvular ejective. Shin and Iriali are separate languages.

 

雅烈席名字是故意聽起來很有波斯風的。

Alethi names intentionally sound very Persian.

 

羅沙正朝向魔法龐克的方向發展,因為他們有著一海票滿天飛的授予。

Roshar is headed towards magicpunk since they've got a ton of Investiture flying around.

 

<引誓>裡面會有紗卡(卡拉丁+紗藍)時光。(留言開放戰紗卡雅三角戀)

There will be Shalladin (Kaladin+Shallan) moments in Oathbringer

 

加絲娜不知道雅多納西。她不知道寰宇。

Jasnah does not know about Adonalsium. She is not cosmere aware.

 

憎惡不再是人類了

Odium isn't human any longer

 

沒人知道誰殺了薩迪雅司。達利納如果知道大概會懲罰雅多林。(廢話啊你怎麼教小孩的OAO)

Nobody knows who killed Sadeas. Dalinar would probably punish Adolin if he knew.

 

利芙特在<引誓>裡面會有"驚鴻一瞥"的現身。

We will see "little glimpses" of Lift in Oathbringer.

 

<颶光典籍>系列的書名的這些書(例如<王道>、<燦言>)在羅沙裡面並沒有組成真正的一個系列或"典籍"。

The in-world books that lend names to the Stormlight Archive books do not form an in-world collection or "archive".

 

帕山迪節奏滲透得到整個寰宇,不過他們在羅沙的表現有點不同。

The Parshendi Rythms permeate the whole Cosmere, though their manifestation on Roshar is a bit different.

 

颶光可以某種程度上滲透到除了玻璃之外的材質中。

Stormlight can permeate other materials besides glass, to an extent.

 

裂谷魔會從牠們的寶心中取用颶光。

Chasmfiends make use of stormlight from their gemhearts.

 

有些鬼血知道霍德。他們大概會想審問他,看看他知道些甚麼。

Some Ghostbloods know about Hoid. They would probably want to interrogate him, to know what he knows.

 

分割波力(Division)只拆解分子,而非原子。

The Division surge splits molecules only, not atoms.

 

無眠者的種群(hordelings)技術上來說不算克姆林蟲。他們生來長得像克姆林才不會在羅沙被注意。但他們不必看起來像是真的克姆林蟲。

Sleepless Hordelings are not technically cremlings. They have been bred to look like cremlings so that they won't be noticed on Roshar. But they don't have to look like true cremlings.

 

泰爾丹篇 Taldain

霍德在<白沙>發展下去的時候看起來會更顯眼。

Hoid will become more apparent as White Sand goes on.

 

對於自主的授予有足夠知識的人,可以在泰爾丹的恆星星光照得到的地方使用祂的授予。

  註:自主的本體似乎棲息在泰爾丹的大恆星上,祂使用陽光授予泰爾丹的亮面。參見小舖文章 秘典:泰爾丹系統

Someone with enough knowledge will be able to use Autonomy's investiture if Taldain's star was seen from his/her shardworld and the light particles are reaching him.

 

布蘭登不喜歡化水術(slatrification)因為它跟寰宇不太搭軋。如果他可以出版文本的<白沙>小說,他大概會把化水術改成書中世界上的一種迷思。

  註:化水術是泰爾丹的授予---御沙術的衍生技巧......之後會詳細介紹,總之,化水術可以讓御沙師把白沙轉化成水。(不得不說的確有點莫名其妙)

Brandon not fond of how slatrification doesn't fit well with the cosmere. If he ever publishes a White Sand prose novel, he would probably change slatrification and play the graphic novel version off as an in-world myth.

 

泛寰宇篇 General Cosmere

血金尖刺不算是法器。法器特別指稱被困在寶石中的授予,用來執行某些任務。

Hemalurgic spikes are not fabrials. Fabrial specifically refers to investiture trapped in a gemstone modified to do something.

 

已經有些躍界者生下不屬於該誕生地的魔法使用者了。

  註:例如,一個迷霧人小孩在羅沙長大,之類的

Magic users have been born to Worldhoppers on worlds their magic is not native.

 

雅多納西這個名字是從希伯來文的神(Adonai)來的。(這老消息了吧怎麼會在這裡出現..)

The name Adonalsium was taken from Hebrew words for God (Adonai).

 

對於和諧來說,要在分裂成存留跟滅絕之外的碎力是幾乎不可能(但技術上可能)的。

It is highly unlikely (but technically possible) for Harmony to be split into separate Shards besides Preservation and Ruin.

 

復活/重生是寰宇一個很重要的主題。但布蘭登不會想要人們無止盡的猜測一個角色到底死了沒。他了解這點而且知道要平衡。

Resurrection/rebirth is an important theme in the cosmere, but Brandon also doesn't want people to endlessly speculate every time a character seems to die. He realizes this and the need for balance.

 

搜尋者偵測的是啟動的授予,正在被使用的授予,所以當碎刃被召喚的時候,會有曇花一現的脈動。

Seekers detect kinetic Investiture, Investiture that's being used, so when a Shardblade is summoned, you'd get a blip.

 

如果一個水蛭(鉻迷霧人)抓住碎刃師然後燒鋁,碎刃師會無法召喚碎刃。

  註:其實我覺得這段有誤植,水蛭要怎麼燒鋁啊w 不過水蛭的確能清空別人的金屬存量。

If a Leecher was holding a Shardbearer and burning aluminum, the Shardbearer won't be able to summon their Blade

 

在意識界有動物,不過我們不會特別叫它們動物。

There are animals in the Cognitive Realm, but we wouldn't necessarily call them animals

 

"倖存的"碎神......祂逃離這一切是個明智的抉擇。

  註:小小複習,曾經有個碎神,山神說祂是"who just wanna hide away and survive",不過還不知道祂的原旨是甚麼

"Survival" Shard... it was wise decision to get away from all of that

 

有碎神的碎池不在祂們目前居住的星球。至少有一個如此。

There are shards whose shardpools are not on a planet they currently inhabit. At least one.

 

有些人覺得雅多納西可以被拼回去而有些人覺得這不可能。

Some people think Adonalsium can be put back together and some think it's impossible.

 

霍德不是碎體。(我們一直都知道霍德沒有當過碎神,所以這裡又強調一次)

Hoid isn't a Sliver.

 

霍德取得天鉑珠子的目的就是要變成鎔金術師(而且我們已經看過他使用鎔金術)。天鉑不能被用來取得鎔金術以外的能力。

Hoid's goal with the lerasium bead was to become an allomancer. (and we have seen him use allomancy) Lerasium cannot be used to give powers other than Allomancy.

 

靈可以被血金尖刺穿刺。但是從他們身上增加或竊取能力都行不通。

Spren can be pierced by hemalurgic spikes. Giving them abilities wouldn't work as well as stealing from them.

 

重力並不是與一個星球產生靈魂上連繫的直接結果。

Gravity is not directly a result of being spiritually Connected to the planet.

 

你可以用藏金術或(更簡單/直接的)紅銅雲隱藏自己的生命感,不被有駐氣的人找到。

You could hide your lifesense from people with Breath using Feruchemy or (more easily/normally) a coppercloud.

 

我們已經看過有人有著混合的授予,來自不同的碎力。

We have seen people with mixed investiture, from different Shards.

 

如果是激素失調造成的憂鬱症可以用寰宇的魔法治療,但如果是心理因素造成的就不行。

Cosmere magic can heal depression if it's caused by a hormonal imbalance, but not if there are psychological reasons.

 

銀光是一整座有人居住的城市---不只是一間大學。(好像也不是新資訊,只是進一步確認)

Silverlight is a full city with people living there- not just a university.

 

艾洛卡的碎刃上有十個符文是有原因的。

There's a reason Elhokar's blade has the ten glyphs on it.

 

盟鑄師都沒有碎刃。

Bondsmiths don't have Blades.

 

雅多納西的破碎對於某個現存的魔法系統有影響。

The Shattering of Adonalsium had an affect on the/an existing magic system.

 

從其他星球來的人,包括(納西斯的)褪息之人,可以使用南司卡德利亞護身符。

  註:其實就是指祕璇/開放式金屬意識......坦白說我也看不太懂這條在講甚麼XD

People from other planets, including Drabs, can use Southern Scadrian Amulets.

 

在大破碎的當下,霍德曾經被提供一份碎力,但他拒絕了。(漢子啊)(也有可能是知道之後會發生太多鳥事w)

Hoid was offered a Shard during the process of the Shattering, but he refused it.

 

我們還沒看過在龍形狀態下的龍,但我們有看過一位以人形出現。但不是我們會認得的人。

We have not seen a dragon in dragon form, but we may have seen one in human form. But not anyone we would recognize.

 

無眠者在迷霧之子第四系列(科幻小說)裡面會扮演重要角色。

The Sleepless will play a major role in the fourth (sci-fi) Mistborn era.

 

其他有的沒的 Meta

書中的致謝不一定會跟書的靈感或影響有關。

Book dedications don't usually relate to the book's inspirations or influences.

 

有關如何寫出優秀的打鬥場景還有它跟電影打鬥的差異。牽涉到角色的情緒/想法/知識/動力很重要。對待打鬥就像留一個謎題給他們解。

  山姆:這種有關寫作技巧的條文我通常都會跳過XD 如果你想看請在下面留言提出!我再翻譯

Comments on how to write a good fight scene and how it's different from film. Involving the character's emotions/thoughts/knowledge/passion is important. Treat the fight like a puzzle for them to solve.

 

布蘭登打算問看看托爾出版社會不會願意讓他在官網上合併售出電子書跟實體書。

Brandon planning to see if Tor will allow him to bundle ebooks with physical books sold on his website.

 

布蘭登遵循著托爾金的原則,避免在他的作品中加入宗教寓言。(大概就是避免讓作品跟宗教扯上關係)

  註:托爾金是很虔誠的基督教徒,而山德森也是虔誠的摩爾門教徒(歸在基督教中)

Brandon follows Tolkien's philosophy on avoiding religious allegory in his writing.

 

(有關電影)布蘭登說他會想要做自己每次都死掉的出場鏡頭。就像個無敵Redshirt。

  註1:大概就是像漫威電影宇宙裡面的Stan Lee,只是山神想要自己每次都嗝屁XD

  註2:Redshirt是運動術語,指的是大學生運動員在自己也許五六年的學程裡面,只有四年可以上場比賽。這時教練可以指派他們成為redshirt,算是某種半退場機制,讓他們可以兼顧課業跟團訓。(我不太了解這塊,歡迎運動方面更資深的讀者補充一下QQ)

  註2更新:原來Redshirt是指StarTrek(<星艦迷航記>=<星際爭霸戰>)裡面的紅衣砲灰龍套...感謝讀者指正啊!!!

Brandon said that he'd want to do cameos where he dies every time. Like ultimate Redshirt.

 

如果布蘭登過世了,他會想要布萊恩-麥克萊倫完成寰宇系列。

  註:我很想介紹這作家但他的書連中文都沒出版XD 但好像還蠻厲害的樣子哈哈

If Brandon died, he would want Brian McClellan to finish the Cosmere.

 

=======

過兩天就是指考的日子了呢...看來我也該去唸書了(大誤)

好啦開個玩笑XD 但無論如何,都希望這些多煎熬了幾個月的同學們可以有好的成績!

本篇文章留言開放"戰紗卡雅三角戀" + "幫忙補充解釋Redshirt" + "歡迎追加問山姆各種問題(不會的就轉給山神)"
