ASCAP Competition
From the Seven Radiant Scrolls:
“O mighty victorious one, Power of Powers,
who sits strong in
your throne against the dark ones,
whose risings in the heavens are mighty,
whose strength is widespread in the sea of serenity,
make your people glorious by
virtue of your word, which is truth.”
 — Epiphany 4:6
 
Ba Esevan Aunsarës Suretunumi
“Ulan andrasan vic, Tel sega Telani,    
Türan uzan ess retune ni
Turlan iusretunosë  ob mir obolö 
Uzan allinumi ni arosumi ess ulani,
Uzan türë ess epont ammas aurë,
Turlan usim nor erinan dy 
Turlan sarë epinomum, ess valo.”
 — Isür 4:6
 
 
Custom Words Created:
  • Radiant aunsarë — compound of “aun” (bright) and sarë” (blessed) yields “aunsarë” (blessed-bright).
  • Scroll suretun — compound of “sur” (lore) and “retun” (root of “retunnir” “to keep”).
  • Victorious andrasan — adjectival variant form of “andras” (victory) yields “andrasan” (“of victory”)
  • Chair usretunos — compound of “retun” (genitive of “retunir,” “to hold”) and “os” (place) yields “retunos” (holding-place); from this compound a further compound can be created of “retunos” (holding-place) and “us” (man) to yield “usretunos” (holding-place of a man, a seat or chair); over time this may wear down to “usretnos” or a similar form that is more easily pronounced. Coincidentally, “holding-place of a man” could also possibly refer to a prison . . .
  • Throne iusretunos “usretunos” (chair) with the “i-” emphasis added.
  • Glorious erinan — adjectival variant form of “erin” (glory) yields “erinan” (“of glory”).
  • Word epinom — same as “epinom” (name).
  • Epiphany isür“sür” (enlightenment) with the “i-” emphasis to indicate the Book of Epiphany.
 
Line by Line Translation:
 
Ba Esev Aunsarës Suretunumi
  • Literal “From Seven Radiant Scrolls”
  • Ba — From, makes Suretunumi ablative
  • Esevan — Seven, genitive as measurement
  • Aunsarës — Custom word Radiant, adjective so no declension, pluralized to match Suretunumi
  • Suretunumi — Custom word Scroll, ablative since modified by Ba, plural
 
“Ulan andrasan vic, Tel sega Telani,
  • Literal “Mighty victorious one, Power of Powers”
  • Ulan — Mighty, adjective so no declension
  • Andrasan — Custom variant of “andras” (victory) makes “victorious,” adjective so no declension
  • Vic — One, vocative
  • Tel — Power, vocative (I considered expressing “Power of Powers” as a kenning, but “Teltel” sounds dumb)
  • Sega — Of, makes Telani genitive
  • Telani — Power, genitive since modified by Sega, plural
 
 
Türan uzan ess retune ni
  • Literal “The strong who is held in”
  • Türan — Strong, nominative
  • Uzan — Who, modified to ablative by Ni
  • Ess — Is, present tense of to be
  • Retune — Held, past tense to hold
  • Ni — In, modifies Uz to ablative
  • This sentence reads okay in English, but I’m pretty sure there’s something weird going on here with a tense shift in “O mighty victorious one, . . . who sits strong in your throne” and it’s throwing me off
 
 
Turlan iusretunosë ob mir obolö 
  • Literal “Your throne towards [the] dark horde”
  • Turlan — You, genitive for possession; I considered moving this up to the previous line to even out line lengths, but then it breaks the initial rhyme scheme and it sounds strange to split up “your throne”
  • Iusretunosë  — Custom word for throne, dative since modified by Ob
  • Ob — Towards (e.g. facing, against), modifies iusretunosum to dative
  • Mir — Dark, adjective so no declension
  • Obolö  — Horde, plural accusative
 
Uzan allinumi ni arosumi ess ulani,
  • Literal “Whose goings in [the] heavens are mighty”
  • Uzan — whose (possessive who)
  • Allinumi — Goings, to go as transformative gerund, modified to ablative by Ni, plural
  • Ni — In, modifies Allini to ablative (“goings” is the modified noun, even though it is a gerund; I assume I can treat it as a standard noun)
  • Arosumi — Heavens, “God-place” from the Lord’s Prayer, plural
  • Ess — Is/are (no difference since no plural verb tenses), present of to be
  • Ulani — Mighty, adjective so no declension, plural
 
Uzan türë ess epont ammas aurë,
  • Literal “Whose strength is across [the] sea of serenity”
  • Uzan — Whose (possessive who)
  • Türë — Strength, dative because of Epont
  • Ess — Is, present of to be
  • Epont — Across, modifies Türë to dative (hopefully “across” can be “spread across” and isn’t exclusively “on the other side of,” but since “on the far side of” was a different option this seems reasonable)
  • Ammas aurë — Sea of serenity, as listed
 
Turlan usim nor erinan dy 
  • Literal “Your people make glorious by”
  • Turlan — Your, possessive genitive of you
  • Usim — People, modified to ablative by Dy (I assume this is a distinct word that is affected by declension as a noun, and is not just the plural of men though that is clearly the root)
  • Nor — Make, present tense of to make; “to make” has two forms listed, with derivatives “Making-man” and “Craftsman,” so it has been assumed that the latter form is narrower in the sense of crafts, and thus the former is used here
  • Erinan — Custom word for glorious, adjective so no declension
  • Dy — By, modifies Usi to ablative
 
Turlan sarë epinomum, ess valo.”
  • Literal “Your blessed word, being truth.”
  • Turlan — Your, possessive genitive of you
  • Sarë — Blessed, adjective so no declension
  • Epinomum — Custom word for “word,” ablative since means of making glorious
  • Ess — Is, present of to be
  • Valo — Truth, accusative
 
 — Isür 4:6
  • Literal “Epiphany 4:6”
  • Isür — Custom word Epiphany
  • 4:6 — Fro:Zig if you really prefer, but it was numeric in the original
 
Thanks! This was a lot of fun puzzling through! I'm pretty sure I have the final version throughout, but please let me know if there are inconsistencies in the translation beteen different sections.

Here's a second entry, this time an original composition. Seven lines of twice seven syllables each, rhyming initially and finally.
 
Opening Lines of the Hymn of Salvation in the Light
 
Proclaimed is the glory of the Gods of Light,
Celebrated are their chosen people, the Men of Courage,
Having been loyal to Ammonar, the true, wise, and great leader,
Having waged war for your words, Türas,
Judge and give Mityara’s peace,
Minister many bright blessings,
Lead us to salvation in the Logos.
 
“Ellebre ess erínani sega Arnobiros,
Anire ess frenani optin usö, Bausös,
Jone Ammonaro valan azen irynarcö, 
Kyre efren turlani epinomës, Türasö,
Rectanema et zamema Mityaran ammassös
Azenema esev esevanan aun sarinös
Harbitema eurlo otë sürum Ubitörö.”
 
Custom Words Created:
  • God of Light Arnobir — kenning of “ar” (light) and “nobir” (god) yields “arnobir” (“god of light”); used to refer to the Empyrean powers. Since “ar” is a homonym for god, and “nobir” for nobility, there is a secondary meaning “God of Gods” or “Nobility of the Gods” used to emphasize that the Empyrean deities are right and true, whereas the Chthonic powers are lesser divinities.
  • Man of Courage Baus — kenning of “ba” (courage) and “us” (man) yields “baus” (“man of courage”). Refers directly to military forces and in the above context implies inclusion of their families to a lesser extent.
  • True valan — variant of “val” (truth) yields “valan” (“of truth”).
  • Great leader irynarc — variant of “rynarc” (leader) with the “i-” emphasis.
  • Word epinom — same as “epinom” (name).
  • Steward of Blood Kruikanius — kenning of “kru” (blood) and “ikanius” (steward) yields “Kruikanius” (“Steward of Blood”). Not used above, but it’s a cool title for Türas that I had to cut out.
  • Justice rect — base derived from “rectanir” (to judge) through “rectan” (of judging/of justice) to “rect” (justice).
  • Loving dalefan — variant of “dalef” (“love” as in “lover”) yields “dalefan” (“of love”)
  • Mercy dalefanrect — compound of “dalefan” (custom word “loving”) with “rect” (custom word “justice”) yields “dalefanrect” (“loving-justice,” “mercy”). May collapse over time to dalfanrect or dalefrect or something similar and easier to pronounce. Developed but eventually dropped in favor of simpler words.
     
 
Line by Line Translation:
“Ellebre ess erínani sega Arnobirös
  • Literal “Proclaimed is [the] glory of [the] Gods of Light,”
  • Ellebrir — Proclaimed, past tense of to proclaim
  • Ess — Is/are, present tense of to be
  • Erínani — Glory, modified to genitive by sega, plural
  • Sega — Of, modifies Erínani to genitive
  • Arnobirös — Custom word God of Light, plural accusative
  • This line begins both an initial and a final rhyme scheme. It also has fourteen syllables, twice the holy seven, as does every line of the poem
 
Anire ess frenani optin usö, Bausös
  • Literal “Celebrated are their chosen people, [the] Men of Courage,”
  • Anire — Celebrated, past tense of to celebrate
  • Ess — Is/are, present tense of to be
  • Frenani — Their, possessive plural genitive of he
  • Optin — Chosen/coveted, gerund transformative of to covet
  • Usö  — People, accusative
  • Bausös — Custom word Men of Courage, plural accusative
  • Parallel positioning of Bausös to Arnobirös in the above line implies connection
 
Jone Ammonaro valan azen irynarcö 
  • Literal “Having been loyal to Ammonar, [the] true wise great leader,”
  • Jone — Having been loyal to, past tense of to be loyal to
  • Ammonaro — The god Ammonar, accusative
  • Valan — Custom word true, adjective so no declension
  • Azen — Wise, adjective so no declension
  • Irynarcö  — Custom word great leader, accusative
  • Though less important in this poetic form, “True Wise Judge” is intentionally placed after the name of Ammonar so as to be in the position of an objective aspect
 
Kyre efren turlani epinomës, Türasö
  • Literal “Having waged war for your words, Türas,”
  • Kyre — To have waged war, past tense of to wage war
  • Efren — For, modifies Epinomë to dative
  • Turlani — Your, genitive plural you
  • Epinomës — Word, modified to dative by Efren, plural
  • Türasö — The god Türas, accusative
  • Intentional use of Epinomë, which means both word and name, implying wars waged both at Türas’ command (and implied by the previous line, thereby that of Ammonar) and fought to carry out Türas’s mighty justice (his “name,” given his two principal titles — Marshall of Justice and Judge of Valor)
 
Rectanema et zamema Mityaran ammassös
  • Literal “Judge and give Mityara’s peaces,”
  • Rectanema — Judge, future tense of to judge
  • Et — and
  • Zamema — give, future tense of to give
  • Mityaran — Mityara’s, possessive genitive of goddess Mityara
  • Amassös — peaces, accusative plural
  • Initial rhyme scheme shifts here with the change in tense and focus from praise to supplication. Simple Future is used instead of Future Conditional in these final lines as an expression of faith that this prayer will be answered.
 
Azenema esev esevanan aun sarinös
  • Literal “Minister seven sevens bright blessings,”
  • Azenema — Minister, future tense of to minister
  • Esev esevanan — Seven of seven, genitive; declension applied as one unit to avoid confusion; seven sevens is twice holy and thus a suitable number of blessings to apply
  • Aun — Bright, adjective so no declension
  • Sarinös — Blessings, plural accusative transformative gerund of to bless
 
Harbitema eurlo otë sürum Ubitörö.”
  • Literal “Lead us to salvation in [the] Logos”
  • Harbitema — Lead, future tense of to lead
  • Eurlë — Us, would be the accusative of we but is modified to dative by Otë
  • Otë — To, modifies Eurlo to dative
  • Sürum — Enlightenment
  • Ni — In, modifies Sürum to ablative
  • Ubitörö — The Logos, accusative
  • The poem concludes in a holy seven lines, names the three most significant Empyreans, and appeals to them for salvation.

Kvothe's Opening Lines from The Name of the Wind
 
“I have stolen princesses back from sleeping barrow kings. 
I burned down the town of Trebon.

Riddle of Steel monologue by Thulsa Doom
from Conan The Barbarian (1982) written by John Milius and Oliver Stone, based on the characters created by Robert E. Howard
 
There was a time, boy, when I searched for steel.
When steel meant more to me than gold or jewels.
(conan)The riddle of steel.
Yes! You know what it is, don't you, boy?
Shall I tell you? It's the least I can do.
Steel isn't strong, boy. Flesh is stronger. Look around you.
(gestures)There, on the rocks. That beautiful girl.
Come to me, my child.
That is strength, boy. That is power.
The strength and power of flesh.
What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?
The strength of your body… ...the desire in your heart.
I gave you this. Such a waste.
Contemplate this on the Tree of Woe.
Crucify him.

Conan’s Father talks of Crom and the Riddle of Steel
from Conan The Barbarian (1982) written by John Milius and Oliver Stone, based on the characters created by Robert E. Howard
 
Fire and wind come from the sky… ...from the gods of the sky,
but Crom is your god. Crom and he lives in the earth.
Once giants lived in the earth, Conan.
And in the darkness of chaos...
...they fooled Crom and they took from him the enigma of steel.
Crom was angered and the earth shook.
And Fire and wind struck down the giants and threw their bodies in the water.
But in their rage, the gods forgot the secret of steel… ...and left it on the battlefield.
And we who found it… ...are just men.
Not gods. Not giants. Just men.
The secret of steel has always carried with it a mystery.
You must learn it, little Conan.
You must learn its discipline.
For no one, no one in this world can you trust.
Not men, not women, not beasts.
This you can trust.

Conan’s Prayer to Crom
from Conan The Barbarian (1982) written by John Milius and Oliver Stone, based on the characters created by Robert E. Howard
Crom...
...I have never prayed to you before.
I have no tongue for it.
No one, not even you, will remember
if we were good men or bad.
Why we fought or why we died.
No.
All that matters is that two
stood against many.
That's what's important.
Valor pleases you, Crom,
so grant me one request.
Grant me revenge.
And if you do not listen,
then to hell with you.
