Bounty Hunter's Guide and DW Manifesto

Anyone else here picked up this book? It turns out there's a bit of new info on Mando'a in here, including names for all the plates on the armor. When I have some time later, I'll post a list.

Okay, here's what we have:
Naturally, we already had buy'ce, kom'rk and cetar...

Left and right parts of the armor, instead of being referred to by payt and staabi, are referred to by the weapons commonly held in the respective hands. The right side's plates are the beskad plates, and the left is the kal. New words are:
Haalas (flak vest or cuirass), upon which is mounted:
the beskad and kal hal'cabure (breastplates)
Kar'ta beskar (chest diamond or tapul)
Shar'tas (stomachplate or placard)
Ghet'bur (gorget)
The neckplate, if there is one, is called the Jatne Ghet'bur
The ghet'bur attaches to the nor'cabur (backplate)
bes'marbur (shoulderplate or spaulder)
The kal bes'marbur is (within the Kyr'Tsad, at least) for unit insignia, while the beskad bes'marbur is for clan or personal insignia.
shun'bur (bicep plate or rerebrace)
Ven'cabur (codpiece, and also my new favorite euphemism in Mando'a)
hut'uun cabur (buttplate or culet)
Motun'bur (thigh plate or cuissard)
Bes'lovik (kneepad or poleyn)
Tadun'bur (shinguard or greave)
Cetar'bur (spat or sabaton)

That's the whole list, as far as I can see. If I see any I've missed, I'll update. I seriously enjoyed this book, it really expanded a lot on the Mando'ade and bounty hunters.

Oh man, I never expected to see any new words coming out of LFL -- I thought they'd left this language to die.

Looks like I have to add a new section to the translator to accommodate these new words (I can't put them in the same database as the original word list, since I'm only allowed to display the unmodified original list).

Thank you for sharing, Vlet; you're a credit to the community. :)

Pardon my ignorance, but is this the book to which you refer? http://www.amazon.com/The-Bounty-Hunter ... 1477805982

I know what I want for Christmas... er... Lifeday! And, if I don't get it from someone else, I am going to get it for myself!

EDIT:

OK, I couldn't resist. I just ordered it from Amazon. Overnight. :oops:

It really is packed with interesting information. Not only the Mandalorian bit, the rest fleshes things out nicely as well.
