I went through a process that reliable sources assured me is close to the common methods that translators use to get english out of moonrunes.
  To make it more readable, I decided to post a few explanations and cut it into pieces...

As you can see, even this short piece has some tricky parts "Orchid wheat average woman" might be something that you can pussle out, but I hesitate to try guess what a "chutzpah" is, or what 8000000000000 is doing in front of a year.
Read on for the next part

Here even more tricky parts sneak in, who is Macy Evil? What colour is Ayla black? and does any of them relate to the talented magician she loves? Does she have 16 or 17 thieves?
Clearly, you can see the need for our precious proofreaders.

What are those hidden hanhaeseoyi treasures? Maybe we can get a proofreader here to explain? But what is the Brothers blonde screaming originally? Maybe it comes from the damages side entrance?

This clearly defies my great mind, it requires someone with far more cunning than what I possess... So when a chapter is very very late, remember this page and try to make sense out of it
