    hi there, as I doing card translation to my local players, I met some questions about Gaia's skill names. I'm not good at Spanish or Greek, so could anybody tell me what Gaia's second and third skill mean in English?

    thanks very much for any replies~ :)

    Anaphero
    to carry or bring up, to lead up (to a higher place)
    to put upon the altar, to bring to the altar, to offer, to sacrifice
    to lift up one's self, to take upon one's self
    to sustain, i.e. their punishment, burden
    The Anaphora is the most solemn part of the Divine Liturgy, or the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, during which the offerings of bread and wine are consecrated as the body and blood of Christ. This is the usual name for this part of the Liturgy in Greek-speaking Eastern Christianity

    Horme
    a violent motion, impulse
    a hostile movement, onset, assault
    Horme /ˈhɔːrmi/ (Ancient Greek: Ὁρμή) is the Greek spirit personifying energetic activity, impulse or effort (to do a thing), eagerness, setting oneself in motion, and starting an action, and particularly onrush in battle.

    Anaphero means "I report" as a command in the armed forces it means I report my presence, since it is a summoning ability refers to her commanding the Gorgoneions to appear.

    Horme is the powerful forward movement.

    You can do whatever you want of course, but as a fellow translator I wanted to ask are you thinking on translating the names of Gaia's abilities? Keep in mind that those names are the same in all languages, as you can see in the web when you switch Spanish to English, they are probably the same in the French and German cards too.
