Just ten year has passed since Pandora's tower has been
released. Time flies...
During 10 years I got 3 copies for Pandora's Tower, North America, Europe, and Japan edition. (it is not avalable to play other country's edition, but I'm glad I got them for collection) I hope I would can play Pandora's tower by Nintendo Switch someday.
Here’s a list detailing the meanings of the Masters actual names, these names are allegedly taken from the Japanese guide book, but as I have never seen it for myself, I cannot confirm whether or not that's actually true. The first word is in relation to their number and (with the exception of the Wellspring Steeple Master whose number is written in Spanish) are written in Tigrinya for some unknown reason. Also, I should mention that some of the Tigrinya numbers may or may not be misspelled, I can't say for certain because the results I found online were inconsistent.
Master of the Treetop Tower: Hade Cyclops = No. 1 Cyclops: I imagine most people have heard of a Cyclops before, they are giant one-eyed creatures from Greek mythology. Howeve…
Until recently I thought that the song names "Catenae Fortunae" & "Eternal Blessing" were made up, but as it turns out some of songs from Pandora's Tower do in fact have official titles. Apparently, Nintendo of Japan had some sort of mobile service thing called Nintendo Mobile (任天堂モバイル) that distributed content like ringtones and such and at one point released a small handful of tracks from Pandora's Tower. However, Nintendo Mobile's service ended in March of 2013 as shown here. https://www.nintendo.co.jp/etc/nintendomobile/
Learning this I searched online to find any details I could regarding these official titles and after some digging I finally managed to find some sites that featured some information about them. Unfortunatly I don't spe…
It's been nearly a year since we begun to translate lyrics for "Catenae Fortunae".
Unfortunately I'm not really an expert about Latin language so it was not going very well.
However, some kind person told me their suggestion and filled in blanks.
but some words are undeciphered till now...
Anyone who know much about Latin? I would appreciate if someone fix words.
(words in parentheses are an unclear)
Sex luces, sex umbræ, duodecim gratiæ omnes
Sex iræ (gladii sunt) ah ah ah ah

Anima palma maiora serva me

Cur (brilles) corda crescit
Audite fortunæ, Catenæ Fortunæ!
Cool. I like this.
I'm happy because Sakurai haven't forgotten them even now.
This is an official art.
But...where on earth did they bring that Christmas tree and ornaments? In the Observatory??
Well... I don't quibble over details. Anyway, have a good day!
In my country, November 22nd is called "good couples's
day" . So I recommend this official art today. This drawing was

(on this year this magazine published Pandora's tower arts every month and there were 9 arts in total. )
And one more, there was Mavda's congratulatory message to Aeron
and Elena in this article, too.
I tried to translatelate her message. I am happy if you are satisfied.
（I beg you will excuse my clumsy translation)
・Message from Mavda and Old man for Aeron and Elena
"Oh dear, you are all dressed up today, aren't you?
I remember our young…
Recenty, I saw the website for "The Sea of Monsters"
movie on the internet.
It looked so interesting because I like the Greek mythology (except some tragic stories in it).
That reminds me, in the Pandora's tower,
there are some words derived from foreign mythology includes Ancient Greek.
As you know, somehow many words were changed when this game was localized.
I made a list for these changed words as I know.
・Imperia→The Graecia continent
・The Vestra→The Dvergr
・Oraclos Chain→Orichalcum Chain
(these words aren't come from the Ancient mythology but I added them for now)
・In the Aeron's flash…
I finished (?) translating the lyrics for Zeron's final form theme, "Requiem for Zeron".
Please don't be mad at me if there are mistakes in this translation...
(Note: Again, this lyrics is NOT official and I used a forced interpretation for some words. I hope you will be able to think of these unnatural sentences with an open mind )

Now I'm trying to translate lyrics for Catenae fortunae.
But The work is not progressing at all. It's all Greek...no,ancient Aiosian to me : (
However, it seems to me that I heard some meaningful words in the Boss music.
I added up my translate here, please point out if there are any
other particular points.
(Please note that this translation is just guesswork)
This is the beginning of the Boss theme (Female type), "arbor summam(?) terra aqua alubm(?) tene(?) ferrus" means "Wood, collect, Earth, Water, White, hold, Metal".
Oh no, it's not clear what this passage means yet. But I think that this sentence means Master's elements. However, I can't find "flame" in this sentence. Sigh...
【Today's trivia】 The titles of the musics I could find
So i've got all the endings, all text, and I'm at 97%. I think that the only thing that I'm missing is probably the first "on top of the observatory" cutscene (that is if it's not the one where Elena and Aeron do the Aios promise on top of the observatory). Even so I don't think that it could make me reach 100%
Currently my affinity is grade A, 7/10 I think. I've actually unlocked another extra scene breaking the first chain of a tower while Elena was transformed, but that didn't add anything to the overall %. Any idea what I should do?
Probably I should get max affinity, but I discovered that old wood isn't grindable (only one and that's it) and stacking money is awfully boring.
I love Pandora's towers musics. And I especially like "Catenae fortunae" and boss music (boss music is named "The voice from dark abyss" by official). But lyrics for these music is sung in Latin, so I can't understand the meaning of lyrics : (
I found a translation made by someone for Catenae fortunae, but it was only 4 bars at the beginning of the music. (Perhaps he gave up on it)
According to him , the lyrics of the beginning of Catenae fortunae is
"sex luces, sex umbrae, duodecim gratiae sunt,"
This sentence means "six lights, six shade, here on twelve grace".
Now I'm trying to translate these lyrics, but It doesn't look like I have been able to complete it.
Ummm I should have studied Latin language...
Please forgive my long silence! I've been tied up lately...
Today's topic is "Master's symbols".
I found these images, but...
I still haven't found a symbol for master of the Dusk tower :(
Someone, anyone, please tell me when you find her symbol...
Two years ago, many magazines took up an article about Pandora's
Recently, I found some illustrations for Pandora's tower in one of those magazines.
Those illustrations were "rejected designs about Elena's
I wish I could have added the image to this Wiki, but I don't have a scanner...
So I drew it myself. I'm Sorry if it is far from your satisfactory.
It was a his-and-hers clothes!
I wonder why the Ganbarion staffs turned down this design...
I'm glad to receive your reply! Thanks : )
I goofed...I confused official arts with fanarts.
But the official arts is so good. I love all of them.
【Today's recommendation】 I found this official art when I googled arts for Pandora's tower.
【caution】Today's topic is extremely trivial things, and a little spoiler
Pandora's tower has been released in several countries and variable subtitles in different languages are available to use in this game.
I 'm a little curious about it so I checked them. I think that the Spanish names looks so cool, even I don't know how pronounce them.
Le Tredici Torri
Die Dreizehn Türme

Hi. Thank you for visiting my blog. It was the first time I wrote my blog in my life. So forgive me if there are some strange sentences.
Sometimes I check Xenoblade chronicles Wiki. On that Wiki, there are some amazing fanarts are put in a lot of page. I think it's a good idea, and...
why don't we put fanarts for Pandra's tower in this wiki, too? I want to see various arts, especially other's reccomendations.
So I put my today's recommendation here. I would be glad if many people agree with my opinion : )
Okay, so we've still got suggestions for Enemy names, and someone tried to change the name just within the content of the page. Now I've got no problem with suggestions. However, a bit more info in regards to enemy pages.
Originally, when the enemy pages were created, they had the official name. I couldn't find a source and decided we'd make our own names. As I recently found out, the official names came from the Guidebook. We'd already renamed many of the enemies, and based on the fact that some enemies have names provided by texts in the English versions that don't match the JP names, we chose to keep the names. Using names like Evolve and the strange names provided for the Masters will just confuse people. The official names will be adde…
Happy Birthday to the wiki!!! It has now been a year since it's
I've We've achieved quite a lot in
Also, more important in general but less important to the wiki, it's my birthday too.
VGT is holding a poll for who fans think should be the new addition to the Smash Bros. 4 character roster, and, naturally, Aeron is available for voting. The results of the poll are to be shown to the creator of the series, Masahiro Sakurai, so the winner has a good chance of getting in. So go - vote for Aeron, every day until the poll ends, as you can vote once a day. He's not doing too well just now, but if we can get him into the top 16, he'll move into the semifinals. Even better, if he gets in the game, there'll be more publicity for our game, in turn improving the publicity for the wiki and the chances of Operation Rainfall, even though by then we'll know whether or not it's coming to America.
Hey, you all know me and you've seen my profile picture. Well, since this has to do with my profile picture, which is related to this game, I thought I'd show you something. I've explained some stuff I've realised about my profile picture in a blog on another wiki. Please go see what I have to say. The interesting stuff starts after the Connections to the Triforce heading. Please go check. Although apart from KDTV, you guys might not get the ties to the other two games. Sorry.
Congratulations everyone! ...Not that anyone else sems to be editing frequently. But anyway, we have now passed the 250 page milestone! That's something to be proud of.
I've been too busy to go on lately sorry, hopefully will be back next week as my performance will be over! :)
Hi all, and good news! As I said in my last post, which no one appears to have seen yet, our spotlight request was accepted and it has now gone up. And I just happened to be lucky enough to see it at the bottom of a page on our own wiki (as you can tell from the theme)!
UPDATE: Holy crap! Yesterday, with the Spotlight up, we went from the usual 900 or so views up to 4000!
If you can't read it, perfectly possible given that the screenshot's not great quality, it says:
Pandora's Tower Wiki
Explore the 13 towers of Elyria
I didn't choose the picture or the caption, the people from the tech team chose it, but they did a pretty good job given that most likely they've never even heard of the game! Just don't blame me if you don't like it.
Hello all. To get started, here's something I made based on a similarity I noticed in the Artbook a while ago, a Master and a certain meme.
Anyway, the main thing I've been thinking about recently is how we can improve the wiki. I've been looking around various wikis for new main page ideas, as well as considering any possible changes to the theme. I've noticed some pretty fancy headings, like at Mass Effect Wiki, but they seem pretty complex. Other than that, my main ideas for the Main page consist of a two column layout where each column is the same size, even if just for two sections. I think that that would be suitable for having the Featured Article and Featured Media next to each other. As for the theme, I am well aware that only I ca…
Just to let you all know, I'M BACK!!!! As you can tell from the title, I guess...
Yeah, I guess I'm pretty lucky. I'm one of the 6 kids in my year who have their laptops back; everyone else gets theirs tomorrow. I just happened to be doing a Science thing which requires laptops/computers, so we got ours back early so we can work at home. No that I will this today, so no real point, but still...
So yeah. Watch this Blog, because very soon I'll update it with the well-overdue Spotlight confirmation. If I get one.
UPDATE: The request has been accepted! I'm not sure how long it will take for it to show up down the bottom, but anyway.
Okay, well as you saw I recently wrote a Blog about the request for a Spotlight I made, and I can now confirm that it has been approved... sort of.
There didn't seem to be any complaints about the Wiki, but the reply I received from Wendy (the staff who deals with Spotlights) said that since I'm the only Admin here and I'm unable to edit frequently that now wouldn't be a good time. Which is fair enough. So on Monday week after next. when I get my school laptop back (which I usually use) I am going to let her know on her Wall, and then we're in! As I said, I still can't visit frequently and I'm only on for a small time now. Sorry, guys.
Hello all - and goodbye. This blog is to tell you all of my temporary leave from Wikia which begins tomorrow. Unfortunately, my school laptop (which I use for Wikia) is being taken back by the school for a service. For some reason, the school is convinced that we must hand it in two weeks before Lenovo, the company providing the service, comes out to check them. It takes one day, yet my school is making me hand it in 2 weeks early to "minimise disruption to your child's (me) learning". Knowing my school, even though it's only going to take one day, I probably won't get it back for a week afterwards because they take forever to return them to the students. Some of my friends originally got their laptops over a week after I recived mine.
Who is frequently contributing to this wiki because we need all the help we can get? Please try and do atleast one thing- big or small on this wiki everyday! Id we tried it could really be something great!
Hello all. I'm fairly certain that most of you already know this, but for those who don't, there are some things about our enemies pages which should be known. Firstly, nearly all of the enemies have unofficial names which either one of us or another website made up. There are a few names given by in game texts, but only that: a few. One example is the Minotaur.
Secondly, one of the websites with the largest Enemy artwork database I've seen is probably this one.
Now, with that all done, does anyone have any ideas for names for those enemies who we have artwork for but not pages and names? Especially the two enemies fought in Blacklight, the Dark and the unknown guy. Dark is a terrible name which should be replaced.
Hmm... now that I think abo…
Hey everyone. Lately I have been striving to reach 200 pages, for one very specific reason. To get a Spotlight. I have ensured that all the pages are over 300 bytes, and I have met all the other requirements. We are able to request a Spotlight. Which I have done. Just a matter of time, now. Any religious people (who wouldn't be playing this game due to its strong religious themes) can start praying now.
EDIT: For those who didn't know, Spotlights advertise wikis down the bottom of every page. Below the point where the Toolbar stops moving down, there are three ads for random wikis which are *supposedly* related. Not really, but anyway. It's taking a long time for the Staff in charge to check. They're supposed to check once a week. She did a…
Hello everyone. I can actually write Blogs again now, because we have more than 3 frequent editors. Although I'm not sure how often the other editors check. Still, one thing you all should know is that I tend to write a lot of Blogs, especially ones with the word "Stuff" in the title. I use that for blogs which address more than 1 issue. Anyway, as I'm sure some of you will have noticed, I have recently made a number of changes with some major aspects of Wikis on this one.
Firstly, I have finally gotten around to fixing that slideshow on the front page. Since there was no way for me to fit a map of Imperia in the picture and no other real pictures of it I could choose from, I have changed that tab to Masters with my Masters collage picture. …
I just wanted to say that in the Creative Uncut's Pandora's Tower gallery, they've put names in the enemies artworks. For example:
So that can makes things easy, don't it?
Hello everyone, all two of you. Who only check occasionally (no offence, I understand that everyone has stuff that must be done.) I just thought you might like to know:
Well, I just posted about our wiki on the Wikis that need more editors or whatever it is on Community Central Wiki. Unfortunately... we're at the 221st place on the list. So... yeah. Not looking good. If we can get 200 pages we can apply for a spotlight banner, those things at the bottom. We're at 35.
This wki will never get anywhere at this rate. I could probably rename it "Jake's guide to Pandora's Tower, with help and images from KDTV". Sorry, I just realised I don't even know your real name.
Thanks to an excellent suggestion by Revitalizer, I think it was, I have decided that it would probably be a great idea for the three wikis for the games of Operation Rainfall to become affiliates. This won't change much, but (hopefully) it will promote cross-travel, meaning that visitors to the other wikis will visit our wiki, and our visitors will visit theirs in return. Now, on all these wikis I have done something Op Rainfall related, and you should all already know what it is anyway. So Xenoblade Wiki, The Last Story Wiki and Pandoras Tower Wiki shall all become affiliates.
If there are any problems with this, you have about 21ish hours to post on this blog, which will be on all three wikis. That is when I will put this into a…
