    If I remember correctly brokastel started their translation of volume 1 pretty quickly after the digital release. A shame they didn't continue.

    Unless they're waiting to post it all at once maybe, but there's no indication of that.

    They finished vol 1 back in April, but they haven't started vol 2.

    Regarding Elucid. Was it ever confirmed that the elder god possessing her was Hastur? I thought it was confirmed but the wiki says it's not.

    No Foreigner had their god mentioned by named. The closest they ever got is "BBhotep". You won't find any explicit Elder God name in any piece of text in this whole franchise. Meteo always makes them completely obvious, but names are never dropped.

    There was also Set-Typhon being used as a stand-in for Yog-Sothoth, I guess?

    But yeah, they never explicitly name them by the actual Cthulhu Mythos names. Abigail's is incredibly obvious since the Whateleys are literally right there, Hokusai fthagn's at some point IIRC, Guifei's got the alien-star-that's-definitely-not-Cthugha, BBhotep's got a kinship with the Pharaohs and gets called BBhotep at one point... but they never explicitly say the names, yeah.

    Maybe it's a copyright thing, I dunno. Or maybe they just don't want to commit to literally having Lovecraft stuff rather than vague legally distinct equivalents to Lovecraft stuff.

    Lovecraft protégés and part owners of Arkham House, August Derleth and Donald Wandrei, often claimed copyrights over Lovecraft's works. On October 9, 1947, Derleth purchased all rights to Weird Tales. However, since April 1926 at the latest, Lovecraft had reserved all second printing rights to stories published in Weird Tales. Hence, Weird Tales may only have owned the rights to at most six of Lovecraft's tales. Again, even if Derleth did obtain the copyrights to Lovecraft's tales, no evidence as yet has been found that the copyrights were renewed.

    Prominent Lovecraft scholar S. T. Joshi concludes in his biography, H.P. Lovecraft: A Life, that Derleth's claims are "almost certainly fictitious" and that most of Lovecraft's works published in the amateur press are most likely now in the public domain. The copyright for Lovecraft's works would have been inherited by the only surviving heir of his 1912 will: Lovecraft's aunt, Annie Gamwell. Gamwell herself perished in 1941 and the copyrights then passed to her remaining descendants, Ethel Phillips Morrish and Edna Lewis. Morrish and Lewis then signed a document, sometimes referred to as the Morrish-Lewis gift, permitting Arkham House to republish Lovecraft's works but retaining the copyrights for themselves. Searches of the Library of Congress have failed to find any evidence that these copyrights were then renewed after the 28-year period and, hence, it is likely that these works are now in the public domain.


    According to an essay by Peter Ruber, the current editor of Arkham House, called "The Un-Demonizing of August Derleth", certain letters obtained in June 1998 detail the Derleth-Wandrei acquisition of Lovecraft's estate. It is unclear whether these letters contradict Joshi's views on Lovecraft's copyrights.


    Chaosium, publishers of the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game, have a trademark on several Lovecraftian phrases, including "The Call of Cthulhu", for use in game products. Another RPG publisher, TSR, Inc., original publisher of Dungeons & Dragons, included in one of that game's earlier supplements, Deities & Demigods (originally published in 1980 and later renamed to "Legends & Lore"), a section on the Cthulhu Mythos; TSR, Inc. later removed this section from subsequent editions because of an existing contract between Chaosium and the claimants to the Lovecraft copyrights at the time, Arkham House.
    TLDR; the legal status is unclear, it SHOULD be safe using the names, but TM is probably wary as hell on the issue, regardless.

    Honestly, I feel like it's better that they aren't super explicit with it. It helps with the feeling of unknown around the Outer gods

    Derleth died in '71, so his own stuff is probably still in copyright hell until 2041 in some jurisdictions - which includes Cthugha and probably some characterizations of other characters, I think? (e.g. the whole "good cthulhus vs. evil cthulhus" thing.)

    FGO being international complicates things a lot, since they have to worry about more than just Japanese law. Also, well, they're so big and public now that they can't fly under the radar like earlier doujin game devs and whatnot.

    I also tried messaging him on Reddit quite a decent amount of time ago, but still no response.

    So then, I'm going to translate Vol. 2 myself. I already made some start into Chapter 1 yesterday, but I'm disorganized due to getting a new laptop, so I'd say I won't be at my regular translation speed until the end of the month. Also, Chapter 1 is a moderately sized chapter (according to Kindle, it takes up 10% of the reading completion), so it'll take a bit of time from me. I'll post an update whenever I finish a chapter in another thread (or perhaps this one if it's too redundant already).

    -Chapter 9: 30 pages
    -Chapter 10: 30 pages
    -Chapter 11: 82 pages
    -Chapter 12: 86 pages
    -Chapter 13: 36 pages
    -Chapter 14: 40 pages
    -Chapter 15: 30 pages
    -Chapter 16: 10 pages

    I posted the 1st chapter of Vol. 2 in the translation subforum section. Let me know any requests, feedbacks, etc. if you'd like.

    I wanted to get out the 1st chapter to see how well I can pace myself in translating a LN, and I think I'm good. However, since I did it out of the way from my personal disorganization I wanted to get sorted out, the 2nd chapter will take a while from me. I';l finish the 2nd chapter at least hopefully before the end of the year, and then I can devote everything to the LN and get things done.

    Thanks, I just read it!

    It's kind of interesting seeing the most significant trauma in Erice's life (and provides some more solid context on her beef with her grandmother because boy Chitose kind of sucks as a guardian figure). I kind of wish I could just see an entire volume just dedicated to the flashback and her relationship with Louis.
