*** I know there's probably some really bad errors in here. I thought a
good approach was to write in English then try to "think it" in klingon
and translate it as I did that... below is the English so you know what
I was thinking. This may very well be the longest and most complex
thing I've tried to do yet with Klingon but I figured that if I found
something to "apply" my knowledge to it would help and this seemed a
good subject. Perhaps [I actually just thought /chaq/ and had to
backspace to change it to English... is this a good sign or something to
be scared of??? ;)] I'll write more stories about /rItlhmoQ may'mey/ to
help improve my skills. Other than vocabulary, I can translate most of
what I see here back to English relatively easily... I look up the words
as I need them, but I seem to still have trouble going TO /tlhIngan Hol/
from English... I'm sure that with time and practice I'll get better.
Also remember I decided to translate "concept" so it may not translate
LITERALLY from one to the other.
Below is the English:
In three days I will go into the jungle and battle my enemy. My enemy
is also my friend. My war is a game. My game is paintball. I will
fight honorably. I will succeed. My enemy will be defeated.
I will sneak through the trees, stalking my enemy. My enemy will not
hear me. I will carefully target my enemy. My enemy will not see me.
I will fire. My enemy will wear my paint.
Two years and 3 months ago I started playing paintball. I liked it the
first time I played. I bought my battle gear that day.
Two years ago I went to Oklahoma and played in the big D-Day game. This
game had 600 warriors. I was on the winning team. I traveled 1700
miles to participate in this battle. This was the best battle I have
One year and 9 months ago I played in the world record game in PA.
There were 1800 players. There were three teams. Again I was on the
winning team. I traveled 300 miles to participate in this battle.
There were many players at this game who cheated. I will not return to
One year ago I played in the big D-Day game in Oklahoma again. This
game had 1200 warriors. I was on the winning team again. Again I
traveled 1700 miles for this battle.
I have also played two games at Westpoint Military Academy the past two
years. The 2001 game was great. We had about 600 warriors on 3 teams.
This year there were 350 people and it rained. We still had fun and we
will all return.
I play paintball every week.
