Orange Powder

Quote:
Now that you are a wizard, I can sell you some orange powder. It costs 10 Kashes, and will recharge you in Magic and Life Points.
As you probably know already, ChaosFish and myself are currently translating LBA 2. We seem to agree about most things, but over this issue we had a disagreement. ChaosFish claimed that the orange is referring to the fruit, while I said that it referrs to the colour.

After we almost killed each other when fighting about that, I decided to bring the discussion here: is the powder made of oranges, or is it just coloured orange?


Vote for colour and I'll marry you

I guess it's the colour. But to make sure, you should check the German/French version of the game (although French wouldn't be usefull since the fruit and colour are also the same there) to see how it's translated there.

So colour it is (I think), but I do not want to marry you

Hmm...
Actually, I doubt there are any oranges in Twinsun at all.

"Maintenant que vous êtes mage, je peux vous vendre de la poudre orange. Elle coûte 10 kashes, et vous rechargera en points de vie et de magie."

It's the colour, because if it was made of the fruit it would be "de la poudre aux oranges"

Achh! He doesn't need to marry us. He just needs to thank us. And by the way, I've chosen color because it was the first thought of me. But why "orange"? Why can't it be purple when it restores only life points and magic points?

In french you say "poudre d'orange" or "poudre à l'orange" or "poudre aux oranges" to talk about the fruit but not "poudre orange" as in the game. It's obviously reffering to the colour.

I say it's colored orange because why would the fruit have magical restoritive properties?

As all the french people, i say it's the color and not the fruit (anyway, they don't have any fruit on twinsen, they never eat, they just have some cow to milk...)


And the quote, isn't it when you're seeking for Rick, or for Johnny Rocket ?
