New ways of greeting

Lately I've been thinking we don't have that many ways of greeting each other in the Protoss' language, or even also how to say 'farewell'. I would like to propose now some for the followers of the blog according to the growing lexicon we have now.

We are all very well acquainted with such greetings as the famous en taro Adun! or Adun toridas (this specially for Dark Templars), or even also with some also mentioned and re-interpreted in this coherent attempt of the language as taro Adun ruulas. We can now use some of the new following ones:


  • En Aiur. This is the classical "For Aiur", not a lot of mystery there.
  • En var. This is also used in the games "for honor".
  • Var en nas. I'm now coining this one with the meaning "honor for you", it could be used as a farewell also.


Myself I started to use some of the following as well:


  • Taran/Tarum arashad. Which I've translated as "your name be praised!" (with the variation for singular or plural). This I particularly use as a farewell.
  • Terr en nas. Meaning "respect to you".
  • Taran/Tarum varad. "Your name be honored".


So, I hope you enjoy these new greetings and farewells and use them in your games or role-plays. More is about to come soon enough, stay tuned!

 Adun toridas!

  1. Great one! All of these really have the Protoss feel to them.
    How about "Und lara khar" ("Be at peace")?

  2. Thanks, very much!

    That particular one will be the focus of my next posts, I'm still trying to decide about the grammar in that sample. But soon enough I will analyze it.
