The Elder Scrolls V – Skyrim in Quenya

Well, well, well. I think this is the first time we talk about a game here, so why not start big?

The Elder Scrolls V – Skyrim is the 5th game of The Elder Scrolls series (and the only one I have actually played), an Action-RPG franchise set in a Fantasy-Medieval world. And Skyrim is all about dragons: Your character main “role” is the one of the Dragonborn: you have the power to feed yourself from dead dragon souls and, with them, learning how to use powerful shouts in the draconic language, each with a different ability according to the shout’s meaning. For example, the most famous of them all is the Unrelenting Force, also called FUS RO DAH, that translates in the ingame language as “Force, Balance, Push”.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, a whole language was created for this amazing game! And its masterpiece is the song “Dovahkiin”, presented below:

Dovahkiin, Dovahkiin

naal ok zin los vahriin

wah dein vokul mahfaeraak ahst vaal!

Ahrk fin norok paal graan

fod nust hon zindro zaan

Dovahkiin, fah hin kogaan mu draal!

Huzrah nu, kul do od, wah aan bok lingrah vod

Ahrk fin tey, boziik fun, do fin gein!

Wo lost fron wah ney dov

ahrk fin reyliik do jul

voth aan suleyk wah ronit faal krein

Ahrk fin kel lost prodah,

Do ved viing ko fin krah,

Tol fod zeymah win kein meyz fundein!

Alduin, feyn do jun,

kruziik vokun staadnau,

voth aan bahlok wah diivon fin lein!

Nuz aan sul, fent alok,

fod fin vul dovah nok,

fen kos nahlot mahfaeraak ahrk ruz!

Paaz Keizaal fen kos stin nol bein Alduin jot!

Dovahkiin, Dovahkiin

naal ok zin los vahriin

wah dein vokul mahfaeraak ahst vaal!

Ahrk fin norok paal graan

fod nust hon zindro zaan

Dovahkiin, fah hin kogaan mu draal!

Translated into English, it goes as follows:

Dragonborn, Dragonborn

by his honor is sworn

To keep evil forever at bay!

And the fiercest foes rout

when they hear triumph’s shout,

Dragonborn, for your blessing we pray

Hearken now, sons of snow, to an age, long ago

and the tale, boldly told, of the one!

Who was kin to both wyrm

andthe races of man

with a power to rival the sun!

And the Scrolls have foretold

of black wings in the cold,

that when brothers wage war come unfurled!

Alduin, Bane of Kings,

ancient shadow unbound,

with a hunger to swallow the world!

But a day, shall arise,

when the dark dragon’s lies,

will be silenced forever and then!

Fair Skyrim will be free from foul Alduin’s maw!

Dragonborn, Dragonborn

byhis honor is sworn

To keep evil forever at bay!

And the fiercest foes rout

when they hear triumph’s shout,

Dragonborn, for your blessing we pray!

 

I think you have guessed already to where we’re going: QUENYA VERSION! From the language of the dragons to the language of the elves!

Lócenona, lócenona

Ar i antulcë cotumor túrëa

Lócenona, almarelyan hyamilmë!

Á hlárë sí, hini lossëo, randan, anda né

Ar i quenta, canyavë nyarna

Yá né nóssë yúyo lócë

Ar i Parmar nyarë

Ya írë torni ná mailëa ohtan

Alduin, Mandë Arano

Mal anarórë entuluva

Vanima Vilyaríma ná leryaina saura antollo Alduinwa

Lócenona, lócenona

Ar i antulcë cotumor túrëa

Lócenona, almarelyan hyamilmë!
