I'm giving out nine credits, three for each correct answer.

what you do is try to correctally translate my signature.  Be warned, though, that not all of it will be easy.

There are three lines to translate, and the language difference is pretty obvious (to me at least).

The second line is:

I think by cons, quent that I am.
In the dark I'm at home, in the light I'm on the battlefield. A Dragon's life is a constant struggle for survival. But in the end, we will prevail.

hold on, I have to check real quick, been a while since I made this sig...

nope, not right.  If you are using an online translator, it doesn't do a very good job.

Hint on line two: a French Philosopher said this.

Sorry for double post. My bad.

The third frase is this:

Humans Lie! Darkness runs fast to control Gresat (Couldn’t find that word)

The frase is in Dragon Tongue.  :P

Oh well, I hope I at least got some of it right.

unless the phrases are completely correct, they do not earn you credits.

I'll give you the first one, as I just now realized a spelling error within it.

The last one you don't get, as I was very careful in how I ordered the wording.

I cant fully understand it but word by word it says.

1: Deception/Illusion/Lies (present form)
2: Human + (Plural) = Humans
3: Darkness/Shadow
4: Run
5: Fast
6: To control
7: Brother/Comrade + (plural)

So it could be, "Human deception! Shadow run fast to control brothers."

nope.

Nobody wins and the inacuracy is making me cringe.

"Decivieng humans!  (your) darkness has run fast to control (my) comrades"

{your and my can be switched around, never decided which way to put them}
