I'm going to place the witch character cards I took images of here until their proper pages can be made or for User:The Witch's House to use. I also have the clear .png's of most if not all of these characters so unless you guys want me to upload those too?Sondenise 06:34, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Thank you for helping me out, I really appreciate it Sondenise! I have clear .pngs of the witches and familiars already, the issue was figuring out which familiar belongs to which witch (that you clarified for me in the pages already made, again thank you!) What is really needed now is the Japanese and English descriptions. I'm a bit slow with making cards at the moment due to some IRL stuff, but I'm working on them and I'll have them up as soon as I can.

There appears to be 2 witches and familiars there that don't have their names in runes, which I'm assuming are the Mirror witch and the Symbols witch. I can't read Japanese, might you know which one is which? -- The Witch's House 07:20, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

OK, I set up the images better for easy editing and transfer. If you want to move them to proper pages already or let them hang out for a bit here I'll leave to you. Also, apologizes in advance for crud translations but at least I was able to transcribe the japanese for the most part.Sondenise 08:24, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Thanks again! And don't worry too much about the translations, they'll be translated sooner or later. When it's clear what's a witch and what type it is (judging by some of the question marks here), I'll fix and upload the cards of these ones on the page. For now I have them organized and ready to be edited when more information is known. --The Witch's House 11:01, 8 September 2017 (UTC)

Concept art translations

Could someone maybe translate some of those concept art images? I'm particularly interested in the scrapped Kirico Keeper. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 13:28, 7 April 2022 (UTC)

The stuff in the scrapped Keeper's image is basically already translated in the last trivia point (except for the part where Mitama replaces it in the finished game, which isn't included).--Athree (talk) 17:47, 7 April 2022 (UTC)

Ah! I totally missed that, thanks! ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 18:25, 7 April 2022 (UTC)

True Name

Since the incomplete form is Sarah Mirabilis W and her "true" name is Winchester, how much you wanna bet it's actually "Sarah Mirabilis Winchester"? :P Sondenise (talk) 00:55, 21 September 2022 (UTC)

Memoria text addition

Since the memoria's are technically on her page, I added the flipped text for the memoria. I think this is a valid change? Amaterasu (talk) 02:19, 11 December 2023 (UTC)

I guess it's reasonable… though it makes me think, couldn't we put the flipped text directly on the memoria page but use CSS to display it reversed? See below for examples. The first one uses CSS transform, so even the letters are reflected. The second uses a right-to-left override so that the letters are rendered in reverse order, like the usual for Arabic or Hebrew. By using one of these methods it should even be possible to add a button that flips it in-place so you can read it. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 05:55, 11 December 2023 (UTC)

This is a test.

‮This is a test.

Thats a good idea. Though how we would actually do that though is beyond me. Amaterasu (talk) 13:22, 11 December 2023 (UTC)
I suppose the first question would be to choose one of the above two methods. ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 00:29, 12 December 2023 (UTC)
Realistically, I would pick the "Arabic/Hebrew" option in order to reverse the common English format. Amaterasu (talk) 22:20, 13 December 2023 (UTC)
How does this sample look? If it seems okay I'll add a class to MediaWiki:Common.css so the backwards state can be toggled on and off. (It would also be interesting to see if anyone can find a screenshot of the memoria's description on the NA server… pretty unlikely, but still.) ~ Celtic Minstrel (talk) 01:20, 14 December 2023 (UTC)

'Whoawhoawhoawhoa... whoa! A fish! I can feel a tug!'
'Woah! Th-this is...?!'
(...Yeah! Todays radar is in great condition!)

It looks good! Good job, Minstrel! Amaterasu (talk) 12:05, 14 December 2023 (UTC)
