Help me make a cool collar for my service dog please
« on: April 09, 2014, 06:42:53 am »
I want her collar to have inscribed in it in dothraki or high valyrian

" I will take what is mine with fire and blood and those that harm you will die screaming" this refers to the past trauma I have had growing up and my first chance at a therapy dog. Much help would be appreciated

here is an adorable picture of her

she is a full blooded dobie and I think the working fits well with what ive been through, Id also love to have the font for it as I am hiring a leather maker to make it so that the letters glow in the dark like this one https://www.etsy.com/listing/163798386/glow-in-the-dark-leather-dog-collar-with?ref=pr_shop

The Dothraki version could be
Anha afichak reki anni ma vorsasoon ma qoyoon, ma mori fini vazzisi yera adrivoe k'athawazari.
There tends to be a little bit of uncertainity, since we don't know everything DJP has about Dothraki, ans since we are erring humans, but this is fairly solid text, I'd say.

There's also the question of how to translate. It's never completely straightforward. To give some idea on the word/syntax choices, here's a differrent/more literal translation back from Dothraki:
I will retrieve what is mine with fire, with blood, and those who will hurt you will die screamingly.

I can also make some attempt on writing this down, as I'm not completely hopeless with callighraphy n' stuff. What kind of style are you aiming at? There's no in-world writing system for Dothaki (and no realized in-world writing system for Valyrian, for that matter), so the most sensible choice is probably some mediaval-ish fraktur style or even more primitive crude majuscule. Do you want easy legibility for a modern reader or can the font have some more exotic qualities?
Game of Thrones is not The Song of Ice and Fire, sweetling. You'll learn that one day to your sorrow.

According to DJP:
Ñuhor līr gūrēnna. — I will take what is mine.

According to the wiki and probably DJP:
... se avy ōdrikosy lī hīghari morghūlilzi. — ... and those who would harm you will die screaming.

with fire and blood  - perzomy ānogrosā

So put together that would be:

Ñuhor līr gūrēnna perzomy ānogrosā, se avy ōdrikosy lī hīghari morghūlilzi.
I will take what is mine with fire and blood, and those who would harm you will die screaming.

If you want a nice font for it, this one is really good and inspired by the show: https://www.myfonts.com/fonts/catharsis-fonts/volantene-script/. Scroll down and select enter your own text, paste and voilà!
Here you can (hopefully) see how the sentence looks: https://cdn.myfonts.net/a_91/u/3a/be2afa60a43a204b5c6aab5f39479c.gif
