What a wonderful place you have here! I apologize for yet another “help me with Sindarin please” post, but...um… Help me with Sindarin please? I’d like to have a sword inscription double-checked before approving the art. I’ve stuck fairly closely to known language snippets and of course the WETA inscriptions - the latter, figuring if they weren’t exactly canon, they were still as sturdy ground to walk on on as there might be. Elinglin aen estar nín, estel tirith im “Star-glint is my name, I am hope’s guard” Have I made any dummy grammatical mistakes? I am *not* up to speed on all the mutations yet. I’d also love to be sanity-checked on choosing - * Sindain rather than Quenya * Tengwar rather than Cirth * “Modern” mode rather than Beleriand As for an “in universe” history to help answer those questions - I’m thinking it’s a sword in use by Dunedain at the end of the Third Age. It is a family sword of some lineage, owned by a family that as late as the latter days of Arthedain had some minor nobility. The sword itself though is no older than the time of the Dunedain Chieftains, forged in a time when only hope remained. Perhaps some elvish magic has preserved it through the years, perhaps it’s been reforged “Ship of Theseus” style over the generations, perhaps it’s only a few generations old. The sample inscription is a rough draft, but before I spend much time on the artwork I'd like to make certain I have the text right. Thank you!
