Tenno Language Decoded

Recommended Posts

 

 

It says, "You are the hope and future."

 

(found here: https://n8k6e2y6.ssl.hwcdn.net/sites/all/themes/warframebase/images/Interviews/018/Tennobet1.jpg, it's the first line decoded)

lol... funny cause its a laser plate protecting stasis prods that killed a grineer... to be honest that is surprising, and would have been less surprising, but funny if it said "I am very painful. Watch out" LOL cause seriously I walked infront of it and dropped from the nine hundreds to 69 health just by walking past it.

Each claw is the Tennobet letter "F" or "P" upside down ...

 

 

I have a few theories regarding the Venka.

It could be related to the old internet image "FFFFFF...." we've all seen:

 

FFFFFFUUUU.jpg

 

Which could have to do with the reaction you or your enemy has when drawing your Venka.

 

Or it could be related to the color white, considering the hexidecimal value commonly used is "FFFFFF."

Whelp, don't try to read the alphabets on the Vectis SIlferer skin if it was released. It probably says "akakamadgnegkesg" Because i just copy paste the alphabets from Akmagnus

Haha man this is awesome! I never thought I'd get a shout out from DE :D I figured out some more about the alphabet since then, but I forgot to upload my updated chart. Either way, should be cake to decipher it now! 
 

Also, thank you DE for letting us know what's on Excal and Vauban's forearms, those two phrases had been eluding me forever.

I think that Hayden Tenno is inscribed on so many warframes and weapons as a tribute to him.

Also, I finally found out what the Lotus symbols says:

Icon_LotusClean_Black.jpg

Raw translation: "ooorfraem"

Which can be read as "Warframe" :)

Ah ha!  So DE really did borrow from Muhaqqaq calligraphic art

The hex can be shortened to just "#FFF".

Which can be related to the three blades.

I am truly amazed by this. I have new hopes this means there is in fact a established Lore, coherent and complex core of story, that vertebrates this game, instead of the bits of random unconnected info thrown scattered though it that we actually can see. I just wait to see it revealed soon.

I need help deciphering the following script found on the Magnus barrel:

 

lBgUFgj.jpg lxnT3um.jpg UGQakyk.jpg

 

My attempted decipher so far...

 

n s 'eh' r (Answer)
 
w 'ih' 'th' (With)
 
s 'ih' p 'ee' r 'a' o r (Superior)
 
p o r s (Powers?)

I think it's supposed to be "Answer with superior force." but it does appear to be a "p"

Now I'm wondering if "evolution" is supposed to mean anything significant, or they just like the way it looks when it's written....

There's a light notch, so it is an F. I suppose it could be deeper to make it stand out.

I made a thread on this a while back after our first attempts at decoding the language(:

That makes sense, thank you.

Makes sense, I wish the original artist could comment on this to confirm whether or not it was intended to be an 'f' and not a 'p.'

I think that the nikana (the sheath) says "kuht" - cut.

In addition to the Venka, many of the edged weapons are also Orokin letters:

1. Skana = spacer

2. Cronus = N

3. Draka Prime = C

4. Pangolin = N and O

5. Ceramic Dagger = N

6. Dragon Nikana = N

 

And the kojiri ornament (at the end) Dragon Nikana scabbard seems to be a J

This is pretty awesome, I love this kind of stuff! Any chance you could share a font file for this and the Grineer/Corpus scripts? That would be very cool :)

The top blade of the Orthos Prime says "reach over grasp" on it.

 

The bottom blade says something too, I couldn't get a good enough picture of it though.
