If you have arrived here by accident or an old link, this thread is now deprecated in favor of Master Author/Blog Translations Thread #2.

I thought it would be useful to gather together all the random translations of the author's blog and such. They contain good information, but the information is scattered around, mostly from Mangafox. Feel free to reply to this thread and add in things that I missed or come up. I'll add it to this thread.

First, Grumpy, our own ToG translator, has translations in a pinned thread above. Here is, I think, the most important part of that.

Names and known locations of the 13 Month Weapon Series (Updated!):

Next, the top 7 high rankers, from cat92 of mangafox:

Spoiler


Again, from cat92 in a thread on mangafox, about positions and and shinsoo contracts (edited by me for format and clarity. Please refer to the original thread for the original translation):

Spoiler


And another one, again from cat92 in a thread on manfafox. This time, it's about the more fundamental nature of shinsoo. It's framed as an extract from a book. This one is also heavily edited by me:

Spoiler


cat92 has translated another blog post from the author, about the Tower (with edits by me):

Thanks for the feedback. I added an additional one about Shinsoo's nature.

Awesome! This could also be fused with the Q&A thread as a "Master Author Blog and Q&A Resources" thread.

The bit about Shinsoo is really interesting, it explains a lot about Shinsoo. I never realized that Shinsoo actually Replaced air inside the tower. It's really ironic that irregulars, who actually grew up Without knowing Shinsoo, seem to be the best at manipulating Shinsoo(or maybe it's just that they had to have enough natural talent to force the door open, I'm supposing most outsiders can't get in).

The article also says that King Jahad taught the inhabitants civilization. Obviously, the Tower Guardians were there all along, but I didn't realize that there were inhabitants besides those? Are all those outside of the 10 great families of "native" lineage?

Also, the allusion to "air" would make you think that Jahad and co. were perhaps from the human world. There are all sorts of creatures around though. Or is it possible that the 10 great families were originally humans, and the non-humans are either natives or mixed with the natives? We'll know soon enough after we get a good look at the other Great Families. The Koon family seems human in any case.

Ehh... It's harder to merge, and I wouldn't be first post. This kind of thread only works if the first post has all the info :D

But anyway, thanks for the positive feedback ^^. Thanks to Sarnik for pointing out a new post about the Tower. cat92 also translated some other things in the linked thread, mainly about the author's plans for ToG. Go read it yourself if you want~

Koon Maschenny Jahad is not the only princess in Koon Clan(family). She is the only princess in Koon family to receive a 13 month. Could someone correct this bit? Cheers

Can you please cite this?

Nevermind, changed above. But still. There's a lot of stuff up there. If you're going to request changes, you need to tell me with some specificity where it is and explain why I should change it...

Sorry for that. I only saw the 1st bit and did not see the whole mass of information there after.
Just in case, I meant Maschenny to be only princess of Jahad in Koon family..maybe it is obvious.

Just checked Author's Blog, his latest

Blog Post for Chapter 40.

posted :2011/04/04

The blog post is untranslated I wasn't sure where to put.


Spoiler


In the near future, I am thinking of making a thread/Archive of the Author's Untranslated posts from beginning to the latest (in chronological order), so that people may translate it at their leisure. All of his post both the useless and useful...mainly because I cannot read Koean..lol

Yeah! I actually wondered how could that plate stay so well balanced on a single thread of rope... perhaps that is also to do with property of Shinsoo control?

(..and there was issue with the rope apparently lengthening as Baam pulled it...but later SIU mentioned the rope can extend in length...haha he got me there.)

...come to think about it, I think the balance of the plate indeed was SIU's mistake, as that light cube thing is controlled by Koon to stay balanced, unlike that tray (which I have been refering as a plate..). Or could Baam have been controlling shinsoo somehow?
