In Response To: One more Latin bit in Marathon (Nova)

: In the level Smells Like Napalm, Tastes Like Chicken , you know there is a
: funny one-way ticket hole where our beloved Durandal is keeping the
: Amazing Scorching Machine (aka Tozt).

: In that homely warm corner, the wickedest AI ever delights us with some
: [rather discouraging] words, and finally says: Vale,
: Durandal

: That closing formula kept me puzzled quite a long time until, by sheer
: coincidece, I realized (while trying to sleep XD ) that he was talking
: Latin again.

: "Vale" means "farewell", or if I recall correctly
: something along the lines of "keep yourself healthy."

: Nova

According to this dictionary I use:
val.e V 2 1 PRES ACTIVE IMP 2 S
valeo, valere, valui, valitus V [XXXAX]
be strong/powerful/influential/healthy; prevail; [vale => goodbye/farewell];
*

Nice going ;)
