Thoughts Regarding This Week’s Translating:
I am beginning to suspect “Receptivity” should be Sensibility or maybe even Sensitivity? The places it shows up are really interesting: Sending your princess out to keep watch in the Cemetery raises her “receptivity”, yet Tactics lessons decrease it. You would think that both of these would harden someone. This is a really telling way to point out what this stat is actually representing, it has qualities of the supernatural, not just interpersonal “receptivity” or “sensitivity”.

I have yet to figure out if this stat affects both mundane sensitivity or open-ness to others, or if it is just for magic and supernatural beings.
I keep seeing 마법기술 in odd places. Magic technology is the best I’ve been able to find, but seems like a mediocre translation. It’s on a few items, and the only way to increase this stat that I’ve found is through magic lessons. I’m curious if it’s some sort of use-magic-items better stat.
Speaking of magic! Google refuses to read 마력 as anything but “horsepower”, I’ve gone with witchcraft, but probably should use magic or spell-craft. I’m partial to witches though, so witchcraft it stays for now.
So the big update that I mentioned is that I’ve been translating the classes and jobs. Sadly there’s a line in all of them that is confusing the ever living fuck out of me.
성공수치보유수치가 높고스트레스가 낮아야성공공확률상승 = “Success should be a success probability of holding high stress levels rise ball”
Stepping through it word by word doesn’t help me much either, I simply don’t know enough Korean vocabulary or grammar to put it together. I get that it has something to do with the success of the lesson or job, and how stress either affects or is affected by it, but I cannot figure out the details.
The final mystery on my plate this week is this:
기품, 모성 감소
Elegance, and “motherhood/maternal” decreases
Hold on. Wait, “motherhood”? There’s a “Maternal” stat and it’s not on the character sheet. Dammit rpgs, why do you DO that!?
Just another thing to track down I suppose.
