  • The Var' Equinallin?

    ZeXLR8er 12 years ago
    In the journals, the Captain talks about him graduating from a premier academy, and earning enough to afford his own ship: the Var' Equinallin.
    He goes on to say that the name will seem odd to most but has meaning to him. What does the name symbolise, Quanrian?
    I've searched through babblefish, tried german, french, italian, latin and many more translations, and can't find it. I'm assuming it's something to do with horses, but apart from that, I'm confused.

    The answer is right under your nose, but I don't want to ruin it for you That was just me having some fun I've probably said too much already though Not per say an Easter Egg, but if you figure it out pm me instead of posting it all over the board, so others can figure it out on their own

    Umm, OK, thanks, I think. I'll have a look. Sure we can't have a tiny clue, I don't know where to start.

    Funny that, I suggested a completely different name for the ship, but Quanrian chose this one because it sounded better than my weird random gibberish. Sounds Elvish doesn't it?

    Yes, elvish... Hmm... Um... Err... Hmm... Um... Err... Hmm... Um... Err... Hmm... Um... Err... Hmm... Um... Err... Um... Err... Hmm... Um... Err... Hmm... Um... Err... Hmm... Um... Err... Hmm...

    He's way off. Nothing to do with elves. Think of bananas, and you might guess it soon enough.
    #
    Crazy 12 years ago
    uh... bananas?!
    #
    ZeXLR8er 12 years ago
    Aw Ville, you gave it away!!
    #
    Doogsy 12 years ago
    gave it away?!?! i have absolutely nooo idea
    #
    ville 12 years ago
    Alright, if you don't get it bananas, the maybe this will help you: Think of what usually happens to bananas.

    Is this the clean or the sick answer we need?

    Things that can happen to a bananna:

    1. They get eaten
    2. They get peeled
    3. They get tripped on
    4. An evil doctor/madman takes over the world using his Uber Pwnage Rapid Fire Bazooka bananna.


    ...No, still can't think of anything that has to do with Var' Equinallin...Maybe Ville and Zex is just making this up so we will increase our mental usage per day so they can suck our brains out and hoard all our hard-earned knowledge for their own evil deeds.....................or maybe I just haven't guessed it yet...

    The banana clue is actually really obscure, but it actually is a clue. I just ask that if you do figure it out you don't post it. That way other people can figure it out on their own.

    I'll speed this along though since I'm surprised it's on the second page

    First clue I gave was...

    The answer is right under your nose.

    First clue Ville gave was...

    It involves a banana. <--- This of course made no sense till his second clue.

    Second clue Ville gave was...

    Solving the riddle involves something you do with a banana. (Yes I reworded it.)

    click posted this, and silly enough he was on the right track

    Things that can happen to a bananna:

    1. They get eaten
    2. They get peeled
    3. They get tripped on
    4. An evil doctor/madman takes over the world using his Uber Pwnage Rapid Fire Bazooka bananna.


    Think about other terms that can be used for what click listed and than relate to a simple word, not a term, just a word.

    For my final clue and than I leave it to you all.

    What is a word but a collection of ?

    Yes it's fun watching you guys try to solve the riddle I made by the way

    ZeXLR8er 12 years ago
    OMG, now I'm really confused. I know the answer, but i can't see how it's related to Bananas. (that's right, I was trying to give your brain a meltdown click )
    Could you PM me Quanrian and tell me what you mean?
    #
    Quanrian 12 years ago
    Nope, sorry, it'll give you something to do figuring it out.

    Just to clarify the banana is obscure, so you'll have to wrack your brain a bit to see what I meant.
    #
    ville 12 years ago
    No really, I was just making fun of the whole banana thing. But now that you mention it, it actually does make sense as a riddle. So in closing, think of what you do with bananas, but don't think of bananas while thinking of it.

    ok, ville, that makes alot of sence...

    although i have no idea what that is here are a few riddles im clueless of:

    one sauna, a hundred windows.
    the barns full of sheep, none have tails
    #
    Quanrian 12 years ago
    one sauna, a hundred windows. <--- Maybe a hotel ?
    the barns full of sheep, none have tails <--- possibly a reference as sheep being followers so maybe a church.

    Just some shots in the dark on those I kind of stink at riddles too lol.

    To be honest Ville's clues were not only obscure and believe me there is a way to solve it using them, but they were also originally meant as a joke. So I suggest focusing on the last clue I gave and you should solve it without much problem. Though if you can figure it and out and ontop of that 'private message' me how each riddle I listed in my special post where I bolded them related I may just do something special for you

    If I see the answers posted in this thread before I get the pm with the correct answers than I'm sorry the whole thing will be invalidated. I will give you the ok to post here once I've confirmed you're right. So play it safe and message me first before you post because you may be right. Remember you need to not only solve the riddle but tell me the relevance of all the clues we gave, even the obscure ones Ville gave.

    Zex is however is exempt, not because I don't like him, but because I already am going to do something special for him since he solved it and pmed me before anyone else.

    Interesting riddle, I think I'll PM Quanrian with my guess soon.
    #
    burgerking 11 years ago
    I presume that option no 4:
    4. An evil doctor/madman takes over the world using his Uber Pwnage Rapid Fire Bazooka bananna.
    Is out of the riddle?

    I have no idea, can you PLEASE pm it to me... i just read through this... umm... oh oh... wait a sec... no... no....


    I really need the anwser... but i've hit a stone. I'm gonna give up, it's probably something stupid anyway.
    #
    ZeXLR8er 11 years ago
    No, it's not stupid, it's actually quite clever. I think I'm the only one here who's worked it out!! (in full)

    Is the Var' Equinallin an anagram of something?
    #
    LastDay 11 years ago
    Elvish... I knew people who used it in roleplay but I can't type it myself.

    Var' Equinallin eh?

    Didn't find anything with the elvish translator, it could be dwarwish or dark languake too... or just France or something.

    (Yes, there is language called elvish that Tolkien made, but dwarwish and Dark are jsut scattered words)

    (Yes, there is language called elvish that Tolkien made, but dwarwish and Dark are jsut scattered words)
    Not quite. it's actually pretty amazing what he did. Two elvish dialects are fully complete languages (Quenya and Sindarin), but so is the dwarf language, Khuzdul. he also wrote out the written alphabet for those three languages, as well as pronunciation guides and more.
    Here's the full list of his languages (completly made up by him):

    1. Elvish languages:
    * Primitive Quendian
    o Avarin languages (at least six languages)
    o Common Eldarin
    + Quenya
    # Vanyarin Quenya
    # Ñoldorin Quenya
    + Common Telerin
    # Telerin of Valinor (considered a dialect of Quenya)
    # Sindarin (at least three dialects)
    # Nandorin languages (influenced by Avarin)
    2. Mannish languages (all showed influence by Avarin tongues as well as Khuzdul):
    * Languages of forefathers of the First and Third Houses of the Atanatári
    o Taliska (two dialects)
    + Adûnaic
    # Westron (influenced by Sindarin, and languages of Eriador)
    * Hobbitish (influenced by languages of Northmen)
    # Black Adûnaic of Black Númenóreans
    o Languages of Men of Eriador during the Second Age
    o Languages of Northmen
    + Dalish
    + Rohirric
    * Language of forefathers of the Second House of the Atanatari
    o Haladin language
    o Dunlending
    * Drûg languages
    o Language of the Drúedain of Brethil
    o Language of the Woses of Drúadan Forest
    * Many Haradrim languages
    * Many tongues of Easterlings
    3. Tongue of Dwarves:
    * Khuzdul
    4. Languages of the Ents
    * Old Entish.
    * "New" Entish
    5. Languages of the Ainur (Valar and Maiar)
    * Valarin
    o Black Speech, invented by Morgoth and revised by Sauron

    Oh he has actually finished them, and so many more!

    My info must be extremely old then.

    Maybe I should learn a few words of Dark Speech just to sound smart...
