    Darth Roxor came up with it. Brilliant, no wonder he's a professional translator:

    about the Krokspar (weapon).
    I guess it could come from the Old Icelandic for "krok spear" : barbed head of a spear, which fits according to this weapon description.
    So it could be one more fictive arrangement "made in Vince" or a volunteer typo error (missing "e" in "spear"). Good Game :salute:

    Any botanists/herbalists around here? Do you know which real plants/mushrooms resemble AoD ones?

    amaranthus extract -

    blood mushrooms -

    emoryl roots -

    quicksilver roots -

    kadura leaves -

    avatera sprouts -

    You can find what they look like here: http://ageofdecadence.gamepedia.com/Alchemy

    for our French translation, we went with Amaranthe, the flower that never fades according to wiki, so I guess it fits its AoD/Dr properties
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amaranth

    The famous red mushroom Amanita, some are even very toxic ?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amanita

    I never find anything under Emoryl name, but maybe the Emoryi species, which include the desert lavander. Not sure but as the name is quite the same, maybe an inspiration for the emoryl?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyptis_emoryi

    I guess we will keep Emoryl as it sounds to be an imaginary name

    This one gave me headache, as it cannot be the quicksilver (aka Mercury) : a metal can't have roots. So I gave him a french female name: instead of (racine de) vif-argent in French, we choose "vivargente", an imaginary plant. I even asked Arch-Vile how they translate it for their spanish version, here is his answer
    "We translated "quicksilver" as "azogue", which is also an archaic word for saying "mercury" in Spanish. I think it's an imaginary plant, and it could be possible that the in-game roots absorb large quantities of mercury, which may give them their alchemical properties, or something like that."

    Never find anything about Kadura or something like that.

    Again, maybe a name which finds its inspiration from the Lavatera plant?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavatera

    Remember how Vince & friends went for some imaginary historical and lore names ;)

    Yeah, I know but some botanist/pharmacologist/chemist would surely find some plant with similar properties.

    Amaranthus I've found, forgot to delete it from the list above when I was posting it (in Polish it's either called amarantus or szarłat).

    As for the rest, this is what Darth Roxor came up with:

    I dunno exactly.
    But I would say interface is easily the bigger part to translate, from items desc to the combat log and all the player sheets.
