Ok....I need a good name for

長寿族

Calling them Immortals or Intransients is wrong since nothing suggests they are undying AFAIK...

Elders or Ancients don't really convey the meaning well.

Long-lived Race just sounds dumb...

How about Ageless Race? Or Aeonians?

Closest is Longevity Clan, but it too sounds weird.

Okay, names for the new characters for Tres Espaņa:

Left to right:
Fusahide Era, Takakane Hironaka, Diego Velasquez, Queen Juana I, King Philip II of Spain, Pedro and Flores Valdez, Gin Tachibana and Muneshige Tachibana.

By the way, has anyone found high-quality images of the symbols of the Harmonic Divine States?

Well I went with ageless in the end, since it doesn't exactly convey the meaning that they are immortal while at the same time being quite clear they are quite long-lived...

I thought long and hard for a good translation, but still couldn't think up of a fitting one.

Then I gave up and thought maybe we should just go for elf, because of their pointy ear characteristic and their extraordinary longevity.

Half-Life Clan is an equally-weird name.
Gives off Gordon Freeman vibes.

I like it, sounds cool, imo. And Gordon Freeman vibes? That can never be a bad thing!

The Testament Union = The Combine; each country is essentially a city-state policed by the TU.

Spoiler for v2-A:

England's DSA is Asvisa Phylargyria (sp? It means Avarice of Rejection). Its wielder is Shakespeare (Vice President of the literary club). Overdrive ability converts the pain inflicted towards the user into ether/haiki.
Thanks for yours answer, look like some DSA is designed to troll people hard despite of the fact their ability is godly in warfare.

Sounds like a plan....I'll go change....

If any objections crop up later, I can always re-edit....

of course to retain this term....well, someone should check Minoru's postings and see if he actually had Elves in mind when he created the characters....

I believe I saw some of the Qing/Chinese, who seem to have a lot of the 長寿族 (whatever that is), look like elves because they have pointy ears. Guess we'll have to see?

There's also 3 that you can see in the illustration of Tres Espana's characters that Marcus H. had posted.

Anyone who is knowledgeable in Greek here? There are some words which still needs proper translation to Greek, especially the word "Staseis/Steisos" from Innocentius' Mortal Sin Armament.

Ok.....how should I write the transmission chat bewteen characters?

Since the author uses symbols and stuff in the nicknames should I just write their actual names or leave them as they are?

I'm for the latter....

Just don't ask me to attempt to translate it into English net speak.

My 133t 5p38K skillz suck....
