来源:http://mmh7.ubi.com/en/blog/post/view/tales-of-the-ten-years-war-part-4,以下由HeavenK翻译,顺便这条更新的回复官方闹了个乌龙,管理员之一Kimmundi爆料说接下来的更新是兵种线(明显节奏不对嘛,不是定完种族再公布该种族的兵种么……),随后另一个管理员Ubi-Nox更正说是更新如之前的探秘XX一族(特么一圈回来又废话了)。

The storm had begun, howling, torrential. And nobody could stop it anymore.

风暴骤起,呼啸肆虐,无人可挡。

少女之泪 - 846 YSD – The Maiden`s Tears

At first, many still clung to the naive idea that the Unicorn and Greyhound conflict would not spread to the rest of the already fractured Empire. The declaration of war occurred in late Dancing Flames, 846 YSD, and the first skirmishes took place during the months of the Shining Star and the Radiant Crown. Some optimistic fools believed the coming winter would cool the hearts and minds on both sides. But what was then still known as “the War of the Maiden’s Tears” was not to end so easily. That year’s winter proved soft and barely slowed down the armies.

起初,许多人还天真地以为独角兽公国与灵缇公国的冲突不会蔓延到帝国的其他地方。两国于七龙纪846年舞焰之月末正式宣战,随后首场小规模战斗发生在耀星之月与辉冕之月间。一些乐观的傻瓜认为即将到来的冬季会使双方都冷静下来。不过,那场当时还被称为少女之泪战争的争端并没有那么轻易地结束。那年的冬天相当温和,几乎没有减慢军队的行进。

Engurrand knew taking Yorwick was out of the question. His plan was to focus on the territories located on the western and eastern edges of the Unicorn Duchy. Bayworth, on the shores of Tirya Bay, was a tempting prize. And near the Empire’s heartlands, capturing Kilburn would cut off a good chunk of Unicorn land from Rowena’s authority. Rowena, on the other hand, went with a more direct strategy, and started to march on Millfield, the Greyhound’s grain store, hoping to ruin Enguerrand’s supply line.

昂格朗深知夺取约威克并不现实。他的目标集中在独角兽公国东西边界地区的领土。提娅海湾的贝沃斯是一个诱人的奖品。而占领靠近帝国心脏地带的基伯恩,则能够从罗温娜辖下的独角兽公国砍下一大块土地。而另一方面,罗温娜的策略则更为直接,她开始向灵缇公国的粮仓米菲尔德进军,期望能够一举摧毁昂格朗的补给线。

By the spring 847 YSD, the real battles were about to begin.

七龙纪847年春,真正的战争即将打响。

三线作战 - A war on three fronts

I won’t detail every single battle here, as they were the theatre of many feats and heroics and each battle could be the subject of a great song.

我不会细数每一场战斗,毕竟每一场战斗都能成为一部诗歌的主题。

What you should know is that Enguerrand’s armies, led by Garland of Blackstone, laid siege to Bayworth from Spider Queen, 846, to Azure Tides, 847, but they couldn’t breach the city walls. The defenders, led by Baron Clive Morgan, exploited the old Tirya smuggler routes to their advantage, to bring in food and supplies. When Unicorn reinforcements finally arrived from the North, Garland was forced to abandon the siege and retreat. Rowena’s forces were less lucky in their own assaults. The battle of Millfield, which lasted from the 6th to the 11th of the Laughing Winds, was a disaster, a crushing defeat for the Unicorn Duchy.

你需要知道的是,在黑石镇的贾兰德的率领下,昂格朗的部队于846年蛛后之月到847年碧涛之月期间对贝沃斯展开围城战,但是他们最终没能攻破城墙。由克莱夫-摩根男爵率领的守城部队利用提娅海湾旧的走私路线运送食物和补给,从而取得优势(译注:按这所在位置,海线走私以及姓氏来看,这个摩根应该就是MMX里安的后代,同时也是老哈克的后代)。当独角兽公国的增援最终从北面赶来时,贾兰德不得已放弃围城并撤退。罗温娜自己的部队在进攻时则没那么幸运。米菲尔德之战,从欣风之月6日打到11日,整个就是场灾难,独角兽公国的大溃败。

Enguerrand had lost at Bayworth, but Kilburn was still within his grasp. However, he had not forgotten that Ivan of Griffin was on his way, to fight at Rowena’s side. When news reached Ivan that Enguerrand was marching on Kilburn, the Lord of Griffin took his cavalry and rode west in all haste, leaving command of the main force to his trusted lieutenant, Justicar Tatyana of Stormgrad, known to her soldiers as the White Lioness. It certainly was a reckless move on Ivan’s part, but you have to understand why he couldn’t let Kilburn fall.

昂格朗没能拿下贝沃斯,但是基伯恩仍在他的掌控之中。不过,他并没有忘记狮鹫大公伊凡正在支援罗温娜的路上。当伊凡得知昂格朗向基伯恩进军的消息时,狮鹫大公率领骑兵部队全速向西前进,而主力部队则交给了他信任的副官——斯顿格莱德的诛罪官塔季扬娜,又被其手下称为白母狮——来领导。显然,这是一招险棋,但是你得理解为什么伊凡不能让基伯恩陷落。

You might have heard stories about Lord Wilfred of Kilburn, the famous errant knight? During the Second Eclipse, this great hero journeyed to the Griffin Duchy and offered his sword to Duke Anton, becoming Anton’s trusted friend and comrade-in-arms through many hardships. Some years later, Lord Kilburn became the new Duke of Unicorn. Duchess Rowena was Wilfred’s descendant.

你大概听说过著名的游骑士,基伯恩的威尔弗雷德领主的故事?第二次月蚀期间,这位伟大的英雄游历到狮鹫公国并效力于安东公爵,从而成为安东的挚友和战友,并肩跨越许多艰难险阻。数年之后,基伯恩领主成为了新的独角兽公爵。而罗温娜女大公正是威尔弗雷德的后代。

You understand then that by coming to Rowena’s rescue Ivan was repaying her ancestor’s help. By defending the city of Kilburn from the Greyhound’s hunger he was honouring her ancestor’s memory.

所以你能够理解,伊凡之所以驰援罗温娜,正是为了回报当年威尔弗雷德的恩情。从灵缇公国的觊觎中保卫基伯恩城,伊凡将重现罗温娜先祖的荣耀。

But as Ivan and his riders were joining Rowena’s forces and getting ready to fight Enguerrand near Kilburn, everybody – myself included, I am ashamed to say – had forgotten about Amílcar of Bull.

但当伊凡和他的骑兵与罗温娜汇合并正准备在基伯恩附近与昂格朗交战之时,所有人,包括我,都忘记了公牛大公阿米卡。

公牛与雌狮 - The Bull and the Lioness

On the 13th day of the Blood Moon, the Bull forces ambushed Tatyana’s rearguard near Edenbrook, on the southern side of the Rose mountains. The White Lioness fought fiercely – she knew the Griffin army had to keep moving and reach the Unicorn Duchy at all costs. Taking three hundred men-at-arms with her, she did her best to shield the convoy from Amílcar’s attack. Of Tatyana’s brave soldiers, only one survived to tell the tale of her heroic last stand. Her sacrifice allowed most of the army to escape and reach the other side of the mountains.

血月之月13日,公牛军队在玫瑰山脉以南的伊甸布鲁克附近伏击了塔季扬娜的后军。白母狮作战勇猛,她知道狮鹫军队必须继续前进,不惜任何代价抵达独角兽公国。她只带了三百名全副武装的战士殿后,竭尽全力阻挡阿米卡的进攻。塔季扬娜手下的勇士中只有一人活着,讲述她战斗到最后一刻的英勇故事。她的牺牲使得大部队得以平安抵达山脉另一边。

His arrogance fuelled by his victory over the White Lioness of Stormgrad, Amílcar was quick to set his sights on a bigger prize: he pushed east, towards the Griffin Duchy, intent on seizing a piece of Ivan’s land. On the 4th day of the Radiant Crown, his forces passed the Griffin border. On the 21st, Amílcar began the siege of Voron Peak. On the 25th, the city had fallen to the Bull.

击败斯顿格莱德的白母狮进一步助长了阿米卡的自大,他迅速将目光转向更大的目标:向东推进,进犯狮鹫公国,以期占据一片伊凡的领地。辉冕之月4日,他的部队推进到狮鹫公国边界。21日,阿米卡开始围攻鸦顶城。25日此城沦陷。

On the 1st day of the White Maiden, Stefan of Wolf entered the war, sending his armies north to counter the Bull’s advance. Far in the North, Seamus of Stag had spent the last months cutting down the forests on Irollan’s border, gathering wood for purposes unknown. His plans were as inscrutable as ever, but it seemed obvious he, too, would soon join the fray…

皓女之月1日,恶狼大公斯蒂芬加入战局,派遣自己的部队北上阻击公牛公国的前进。而在遥远的北方,雄鹿大公谢玛斯花费数月时间砍伐艾若兰边境的树林,为了某些未知目的搜集木材。他的计划一向神秘,不过显然,他也会在不久之后加入这场争端。

边栏:帝国历法

A quick side-note about the Imperial Calendar

Some of you requested some explanations about the calendar we use in the Holy Empire and the way the months are named. I thought this calendar was widely used, but I guess a recapitulation cannot hurt:

你们当中有些人需要对我们目前在神圣帝国采用的历法以及月份的命名做些更进一步的讲解。我以为这套历法已经被广泛地采用了,不过我想再概括一下应该也不麻烦:

  • Moon Mother (dedicated to Asha as the Mother, Giver of Life)
  • 月母之月:献给亚莎作为母亲的一面,生命赋予者(译注,这个相对就是一月了)
  • Night Veil (dedicated to Malassa, Dragon of Darkness)
  • 夜幕之月:献给暗之龙马拉萨
  • Sun Blossom (dedicated to Elrath, Dragon of Light)
  • 日轮之月:献给光之龙艾尔拉思
  • Emerald Song (dedicated to Sylanna, Dragon of Earth)
  • 翠歌之月:献给土之龙西兰纳
  • Azure Tides (dedicated to Shalassa, Dragon of Water)
  • 碧涛之月:献给水之龙莎拉萨
  • Dancing Flames (dedicated to Arkath, Dragon of Fire)
  • 舞焰之月:献给火之龙阿尔卡斯
  • Laughing Winds (dedicated to Ylath, Dragon of Air)
  • 欣风之月:献给风之龙伊拉斯
  • Blood Moon (dedicated to the fight against Urgash, Dragon of Chaos)
  • 血月之月:献给与混乱之龙鄂加斯的战斗
  • Shining Star (dedicated to Sar-Elam, The Seventh Dragon)
  • 耀星之月:献给第七龙萨-艾郎
  • Radiant Crown (dedicated to the Imperial Dynasty of the Holy Empire)
  • 辉冕之月:献给神圣帝国的皇家王朝
  • Spider Queen (dedicated to Asha as the Crone, Queen of Death)
  • 蛛后之月:献给亚莎作为老妪的一面,死亡之后
  • White Maiden (dedicated to Asha as the Maiden, Bestower of Fate)
  • 皓女之月:献给亚莎作为少女的一面,命运织女

Like most nations, the Empire has adopted the Elven tradition to have weeks of seven days, named after the Dragon Gods: Malda, Elda, Arda, Sylada, Shalda, Ylda and Ashda. Elda is a day of worship and rest in the Empire, while it is Ylda or Ashda in the Free Cities, Sylada in Irollan, and so on.

和其他国度一样,帝国也采用精灵传统,每周七日,分别以龙神之名命名:马达、艾达、阿达、希拉达、莎达、伊达和亚斯达。其中,艾达是帝国的崇拜日和休息日,就像自由都市在伊达或亚斯达,艾罗兰在希拉达进行崇拜和休息一样。(译注:其实就是Asha`s Day这样去尾拼起来,Ashda是周日,事实上按国外的习惯这个才是排第一的,后面按各种元素龙神的长幼顺序为周一到周六)(音译基本如果单独用出来大家没看过解释可能会完全猜不出来是啥,所以以后大约会采用亚莎日,暗龙日,光龙日,火龙日,土龙日,水龙日,风龙日这样的译法)

 绕了半天恶狼还是帮狮鹫啊

 饿狼和狮鹫的血亲就像狮鹫和猎鹰的一样,毕竟伊蕾娜和安东可是亲姐弟,而且狮鹫家向来都教导孩子你可以恢复你的野性,但是你必须守护你的亲族,而一旦狮鹫获胜,那么整个家族都将受益,而身为外戚的雄鹿获胜则是整个家族都将遭受灭顶之灾

 马拉萨居然比艾尔拉斯年长?

 马拉萨是大姐,这个可是H7就已经说明过的事了呀,而伊拉斯则是最小的,人类正好是伊拉斯的部族(注意,是人类而不是圣堂)

我放下书,抬起头,愤怒地冲着屋子中的六个人大吼道“你们议会的书籍记载这么不详细让人怎么看啊,我还不如去酒馆喝两杯,那老板讲的要有趣多了”。

 这文不长啊,隔着时间发看双语觉得长而已。。。。
 再说这个不是小说,哪来那么多细节。。。。

 我看英语我都费劲啊,讲了半天,什么白狮子,觉得有戏,然后她战死了……没了,没了,没了,没了……
 再看,嗯,雄鹿公国有阴谋,他在干什么呢,砍树,砍树,砍树,砍树,砍树,后边,没了,没了,没了
 这种东西幸好不是连载小说,不然会死的

 话说这背景故事到底烦不烦,是人写的吗?打个仗交代一堆屁话,本来一个山寨女斯巴达还有点可看性,结果出个名字就死了,细节也没了……。另外,英雄无敌有八九个势力,这裹脚布的故事讲了半天就讲几个公国的狗屎屁事讲不完有完没完……。就算放到冰火里,梅丽珊卓有这功夫都弄死三个国王了。
 
 white maiden翻成雪女,瀛洲的那玩意叫啥啥啥啥啥啥???就算统一成两个字,玉女一样能行对不?我果然还是天才,呵呵),皓女也行啊,白女根本不用想啊,总之能不能别雪女了……按照背景设定八竿子打不着啊,你就算说那个月下雪这也不是whitemaiden的错啊。
