    Yes. It seems to happen a lot with these translations where a couple of errors are introduced. "and" should have been "heg" if it was consistent.

    I think he does it just to simulate a DM's almost constant failure to recheck his own ciphers in most D&D games...or he's just trying to aggrivate folks...or he's not simulating anything and just forgetting to recheck his own ciphers.


    I like to think its the second option.

    I'm pretty sure in this case it's the third option.

    It looks like the Giant meant to repeat the 'nd' from 'hundred', which he'd just finished encrypting, and shifted it by one accidently, getting 'un' instead. Thus 'aun' instead of 'and'.

    I am somewhat Inclined to agree, I hate proofreading, and I am one of the most anal retentive perfectionists in the world. i can't imagine that an artist rushing to get a free comic up late at night for thousands of rabid fans is going to be doing back translation.

    *prediction/spoiler?*




    I think Haley is going to get her speech back soon in the battle thats ahead. Aside from the fact this has gone on long enough and her self loathing is following her around I think things are going to get messy for the OOTS real soon and that might snap her our of it.

    Hello. I want to get this thread to the first page. And I think it's ordered by the date of the most recent post on that thread. So this should get it up there. Just wnat to say, it's pretty useful. Some of these I can't translate on my own.

    I think this one was easier because "Nale" gave us four key letters to the longer words.

    Thanks Vargtass. I'm too lazy to do it myself. I'd rather just read the comic and let y'all pick up the slack. Yay, slack!

    I'm not very good at translating these myself, but I think I've done one or two.

    You basically use pattern recognition and letter frequency. Each comic is a different substitution so the process starts anew for every episode.

    Example: In the latest comic, one of the words that Haley says is "H'x". The only two-letter contraction that I can think of in English is "I'm" so we know the values for I and m. Also look for three letter words that might match "the" and capitalized words for names, etc.

    See the What Haley Said... thread for more information. This thread is basically a compilation (in the first post) of all of her cipher-speak.

    Am I right if I think the cypher changes every episode?

    yeah, the cipher changes pretty much every time Haley speaks. Most of the exact ciphers are posted in the "What Haley Said" thread that was linked to before.

    Wow, 140 comics. I hadn't realized it's been so long...that's approximately how long it's been since I've enjoyed any of Haley's scenes, Har.

    Sorry folks, it had to be said. Really bang up job though. This makes the annoyance slightly lesser.

    I prefer to think she said "Nale???" in #386, but we'll probably never know. :)

    I agree. It should be "NALE???" Just because that continues the joke of everybody in the strip shouting Nale's name at least once.

    Really- look at the pattern(I'd like to point out that there are no dialogue interruptions between any of these lines):
    Sabine- NALE!!!
    Elan- NALE!!!
    Thog- NALE!!!
    Haley- XCGH???

    Hmmm... I wonder what that last one translates into?

    I think "NALE???" is most likely. Although she could be saying what, or Elan, or even Thog...

    It is "Nale" -- you can read it in her face -- she's horrified at having just kissed him ;)
