默默出爐的十月教條(份量好多RRR)

雖然是難得極多的一篇,但恐怕也是最後一篇教條統整了,因為現在我們有了教條整理網站Arcanum~

文末再介紹,現在上正文:

======

賽耳篇 Sel

如果你用艾歐-霞歐(Aon Shao,轉化符文)轉化一個東西,即便離開這個世界,這項改變也會保存下來。

If you transform something using Aon Shao, the change would be permanent even if taken off-world.

 

達克獲僧侶的力量會隨著他離開故鄉的距離變大而弱化,但是效用仍然比同樣條件的伊嵐翠人好。(這個設定還有可能會改)

A Dakhor monk's powers weaken the further he gets from his homeland, but it works better at a distance than Elantrians do. (this could change)

 

下一本賽耳的書會發生在菲悠丹並且主要集中在凱胤家上。第一部書的主角們會變成背景人物。

The next book takes place in Fjordell and focuses mostly on Kiin's family. Main characters from the first book will be in the background.

 

仿術需要有持續的能量流進行運轉,所以如果離開了這個世界,仿術就會崩潰。

Forgery requires a constant stream of power to keep going, so if you moved it off-world the Forgery's going to collapse."

 

司卡德利亞篇 Scadrial

如果被一層太厚的他質覆蓋,金屬就不能被鎔金性地燃燒。

A metal can't be burned Allomantically if it is covered by too thick a layer of something else.

 

妮莎-瑟維吉和妮基-殺危急是同一個女人。她跟納哲之間的故事有點被點綴了。

 註:前者出現在《自影》的傳紙中,後者的故事將會出現在《悼環》的傳紙<新昇華報>中,似乎跟納哲有關。附帶一提<新昇華報>中會出現克姊跟納哲的廣告,到時可以找找~

Nicelle Sauvage and Nicki Savage are the same woman. Her story as it relates to Nazh is somewhat embellished.

 

如果拉剎克活下來並且重新提取了力量,他更有可能讓事情變得更糟(以便維持現狀)而非改善它。

If Rashek survived to take the power up again, he would have been more likely to make things worse (to maintain the status quo) rather than improve things.

 

關於你能不能用身分(Identity)來編造實體外貌。

 註:山神表示這很複雜XD(有點在迴避問題),但無論如何你的靈魂會是啟用這項授予的關鍵之一。

About whether you can story physical appearance as part of Identity.

 

沼澤有能力躍界。

Marsh has the ability to worldhop.

 

在一個擁有夠多摩天大廈的城市中,一個扯手可以像蜘蛛人一樣移動。

In a city with enough tall skyscrapers, a Lurcher could get around like Spiderman.

 

關於鬼影是否還活著的問題是個RAFO。「鬼影還有更多故事......如果我寫了《祕史2》,裡面應該會有些鬼影的東西。」

RAFO on whether Spook is still alive. "There is more story to Spook... If I write Secret History 2, there will be some Spook stuff."

 

霍德在《永世英雄》中如果真的有跟紋見面,他可能也派不上什麼用場。

Hoid probably wouldn't have revealed much of use to Vin, if they had met in HoA.

 

羅沙篇 Roshar

雷納林會在《引誓》中有視點章節。

Renarin will have a PoV in Oathbringer.

 

艾薩克討論一些關於符文(glyph)運作的資訊。(還蠻多的,有人有興趣我再翻譯~)

Some info from Isaac about how glyphs work.source 1 source 2 source 3

 

誓盟沒有完全粉碎,而且所有的神將都仍然受它束縛。《引誓》中會有更多解釋。

The Oathpact is not completely broken, and all of the Heralds are still bound to it. More in Oathbringer.

 

《引誓》的末頁中會有神將艾沙、艾希、加斯倫和弗德爾的本地作品。前兩張是被必繪者丹奪司所作的---那是個紗藍有研究的藝術家。

 註:這個名字在《王者之路》中就有出現了(第七章);另外,Dandos這個名字來自山神作品的藝術家之一:Dan dos Santos

The Oathbringer endpapers are in-world artwork depicting the Heralds Ishar, Ash, Jezrien, and Vedel. The first two were painted (in-world) by Oilsworn--an artist Shallan studied.

 

燦軍騎士的靈的性別有一點點重要,但大部分都只是敘述方便。

The genders of Knights Radiant spren are slightly important, but mostly just for narrative reasons.

 

在雅烈席卡、賈-克維德和卡布嵐司所說的語言基本上是不同版本的雅烈席語方言。它們在詞彙上有些差別,但主要是發音問題。它們比起西語跟葡語之間的關係,還要更相近一點。

The languages spoken in Alethkar, Jah Keved, and Kharbranth are essentially different dialects of Alethi. There are some differences in vocabulary, but most differences are with pronunciation. They are slightly more similar to one another than Spanish and Portuguese.

   出處翻譯:卡布嵐司---<王者之路>第三章註解

鈴城是個不折不扣的城市國家。除了城市本身之外沒有任何實權存在,他們貿易所有他們需要的東西。好比,卡布嵐司沒有農人。如果商業系統重挫了,城市就會全然徹底地崩潰。

The City of Bells is a true city-state. They have no real authority beyond the city itself, and they trade for everything they need. There aren’t Kharbranthian farmers, for example. If commerce were to fail, the city would flat-out collapse.

也如同本章(《王道》ch.3)所提示的,他們擁有自己的語言,但這和雅烈席語及維德語非常相似。其實,我將這三種語言視為雅烈席語的方言,學習其中一種的新字時,其實更像是在學習發音(雖然詞彙上還是有些差異)。我想它們的關係比起我們世界的西語和葡語更相近一點。

They do have their own language, as hinted at in this chapter, but it’s very similar to Alethi and Veden. I consider the three languages to really be dialects of Alethi, and learning one is more about learning new pronunciations as it is about learning new words. (Though there are some differences in vocabulary.) I would put them even slightly closer than Spanish and Portuguese in our world.

這個城市的起源談起來就沒那麼光榮了。卡布嵐司曾經是個海盜窩,是低端人口在羅沙早期在航行中的避風港。然而,幾十年過去,它發展成了一座真正的城市。但即便時至今日,它的領導人也承認自己並非世界強權---也恐怕永遠不會是。他們更傾向利用政治、貿易與情報遊戲將賈-克維德、雅烈席卡與賽勒那玩弄於股掌間以從中獲益。

The city origins are a little less proud than they’d tell you. Kharbranth was a pirate town, a harbor for the less savory during the early days of navigation on Roshar. As the decades passed, however, it grew into a true city. To this day, however, its leaders acknowledge that they’re not a world power—and might never be. They use games of politics, trade, and information to play Jah Keved, Alethkar, and Thaylenah against one another.

 

哈思維月之女韶卡和哈思維月之女艾里是兩個不同的人。

 註:兩者都是雪諾瓦哲學家,彼此是姊妹。前者似乎是邏輯大師,而後者的研究跟兀瑞席魯有關。哈斯維月是她們的母親。

Shauka-daughter-Hasweth and Ali-daughter-Hasweth are two different people.

 

問及紗藍初抵卡布嵐司時看到兩個穿大衣的人是誰,得到RAFO。

RAFO about two people wearing trenchcoats that Shallan sees in Kharbranth.

 

並非所有的無實之人都會在放逐時得到榮刃。賽司是個特例。

Not all Truthless are given Honorblades when they are cast out. Szeth was a special case.

 

問及「最重要的話語」是什麼,RAFO。「這還沒被解答。」

RAFO as to what the "most important words" are. "That one's not answered yet."

 

瑞沙迪馬「在羅沙上與靈的共生關係有些微的授予性以至於讓牠們擁有了略勝一般野獸的智力」。

Ryshadium "are slightly Invested through a symbiotic relationship on Roshar that gives them better-than-average animal intelligence."

 

凱倫-阿爾斯壯(彼得的太太)討論了一下颶光系列的時間線。

 註:這篇太有趣了XD 如果有夠多人要求看一下這篇的翻譯,我會考慮寫出來~

Karen Ahlstrom discusses the Stormlight timeline.

 

當一座雷熙島死掉的時候,甲殼會保留下來。最後上面的居民會搬走。有些人會試著拿到寶心。

 註:如果覺得這很奇怪,請別忘記雷熙諸島是由一群稱為太納(Tai'na)的超大型巨殼獸組成的。

When a Reshi island dies, the shell will remain. Eventually people will move away. Some people will try to get the gemheart.

 

一些布蘭登已經對於未來颶光系列的情節的想法。

 註:基本上,布蘭登是個計畫者(應該大家都知道了XD),他已經寫完後面幾本書的草綱,但通常都還有很大的伸縮空間。

About how thought Brandon has put into the plot of future Stormlight books.

 

一個完全長成的燦軍可以治癒幾乎任何傷害。榮刃因為鍵結不夠深而無法達成相同等級的治療效果。

A full-blown Radiant can heal almost anything. Honorblades can't heal to the same extent because the bond isn't as deep.

 

有關紗藍這個角色的靈感。

About the inspiration for Shallan's character.

   出處翻譯:卡布嵐司---<王者之路>第三章註解

我選擇用紗藍而非達利納作為第一部的另一個主角,是因為我覺得她接續在卡拉丁之後會更好。他準備前往的是更黑暗的地方,而她的發展相對明亮了些。

I chose to use Shallan as my other main character in Part One, rather than Dalinar, because I felt her sequence better offset Kaladin’s. He was going to some very dark places, and her sequence is a little lighter.

她是這本書中唯一的一個「新主角」。卡拉丁(當時是另一個名字)在《王者之路原作》就出現了,而達利納也基本上跟現在沒啥不同。然而,紗藍這個位置的角色卻從沒成功。這讓我得要花多點心力來替換加絲娜的護衛。

She is the only ‘new’ main character in this book. Kaladin (under a different name) was in Way of Kings Prime, and Dalinar was there virtually unchanged from how he is now. The character in Shallan’s place, however, never panned out. That left me with work to do in order to replace Jasnah’s ward.

紗藍的誕生出於我想要有個藝術家角色以便提供書中的素描圖。這是我一直以來都想做的事,但在第一版出現的時候沒有方法能讓我如願。如今我有了人脈跟資源完成這些畫作,它們就像來自達爾文這種自然歷史學家的筆記本中。

Shallan grew out of my desire to have an artist character to do the sketches in the book. Those were things I’d wanted to do forever, but hadn’t had the means to accomplish when writing the first version of the book. I now had the contacts and resources to do these drawings, like from the sketchbook of a natural historian such as Darwin.

另一件讓我興味盎然的事情是,早期時代的科學家擁有多廣的知識基礎。你可以當一個「科學家」並代表你已經研究過所有東西。在現代,我們傾向專業點,而我們的基礎就會變得越來越不全面。物理學家就可能對社會學完全不了解。

One of the things that interests me about scientists in earlier eras is how broad their knowledge base was. You really could just be a “scientist” and that would mean that you had studied everything. Now, we need to specialize more, and our foundations seem to be less and less generalized. A physicist may not pay attention to sociology at all.

古典的學者就不同了。你應該要懂語言、自然科學、物理、還有神學,就像這些全部都是一門學問一樣。紗藍就是我描寫這種人物的一個嘗試。

Classical scholars were different. You were expected to know languages, natural science, physical science, and theology all as if they were really one study. Shallan is my stab at writing someone like this.

 

有關純湖的垃圾怎麼處理。

 註:簡言之,因為純湖人口少又沒有工業化,幾乎所有廢物都能被自然分解或被颶風帶走;事實上羅沙各地都有一點小問題,而許多廢棄物基本上就是被一層層的克姆泥蓋掉。雷熙島的居民就更辛苦了,太納的殼很難鑿開。但他們都會找到方法的。

About how waste in the Purelake is handled.

 

納拉自視為守序中立。(感謝〈軍團:膚淺〉譯者單哥指教XD)

Nale sees himself as Lawful Neutral.

 

非無實之人的雪諾瓦人也允許使用榮刃。

Non-Truthless Shin are allowed to use the Honorblades.

 

關於神將是否原生於羅沙,RAFO。

RAFO as to whether the Heralds are originally from Roshar.

 

輓星篇 Threnody

有關輓星的計畫中作品有提及一支艦隊試圖返航,並從邪靈手中收復家園地。(這是老消息啦)

A planned book set on Threnody involves a fleet trying to sail back and reclaim the Homeland from the Evil.

 

泛寰宇篇 General Cosmere

一份碎力的原旨能用各種方法被詮釋,但最後它不會也不能被改變。

A Shard's Intent can be interpreted different ways, but ultimately it does not and cannot change.

 

「宵血的劍鞘的確是某種在寰宇等級上很重要的東西......但應該不是銀。」

"Nightblood's sheath is indeed of cosmere-sized significance... but it may not be actual silver."

 

如果一個意識之影看到賽司:「他們會看到他的靈魂拖在他的身後。這應該會把他們嚇慘。」

If a Cognitive Shadow saw Szeth: "They're going to see his soul kinda trailing along behind him. It's gonna be really freaky to them."

 

靈的鍵結可以用血金刺被奪走,但會「有很奇怪的小混亂」。

A spren bond can be taken with a Hemalurgic spike, but it's "going to have weird ramifications."

 

有關霍德是否在重組碎力的問題是RAFO,但布蘭登承認這的確是各本書中所提示他正在做的事。

RAFO on whether Hoid is trying to rejoin the Shards, but Brandon acknowledges this is what the books seem to indicate he is doing.

 

霍德在《王者之路》中的信是在拿到天鉑珠子後寫的。

Hoid's letter in TWoK was written after he had taken the bead of lerasium.

 

授予會扭曲時空,但不是在實體界中。

Investiture warps spacetime, but not on the Physical Realm.

 

當一個人被宵血殺死後,他的魂魄會發生什麼事是個值得辯論的問題。

What happens to the soul of a person killed by Nightblood is a matter for debate.

 

封波師能使用別種授予。

Surgebinders could use a different kind of Investiture.

 

司卡德利亞的神金,除非是被帶過去的,不然不會在其他星球被發現。其他世界可能也會有神金出現。

The god metals from Scadrial would not be found on other worlds unless taken there. Other worlds may have god metals present.

 

帕山迪(這個族群)在雙W系列的書中還沒到過司卡德利亞。至於一些個體有沒有到過就RAFO了。

The Parshendi (as a group) have not been to Scadrial during the Wax & Wayne books. RAFO as to whether individuals have been.
