lol, I just finished editing my post because I just realized you were referring to Beowulf. ROFL
I'm afraid I don't use IRC. I use MSN, but because my internet is so choppy, it causes MSN to sign me in and out without me knowing, so it can be quite annoying to anyone on my friend list while I'm on. =(
I'd love to help with Mercenaries, as well as any other projects going on!
Wow, I made a huge goof with Snake Carrier. For some reason, I confused Snake Carrier (another move Elidibus has) and Midgar Swarm. They're both wrong translations! The proper translation is Midgardsormr. My bad! XD
Spell Swords... did he even have quotes for them? Truthfully, I don't remember if he does or not. I may have missed them in the guide earlier (or the Qu_Marsh could've forgotten to put them in. He/she/it(?) forgot to put Odin in under Summon Magic, so it's possible that it was just an error on their part.
As far as how long it took to come up with them, it really took longer to find the Spell Quotes guide than it did to make them, lol. I'd say about 2-3 hours. I love the world of Ivalice, so the root of my Final Fantasy knowledge is in Ivalician Lore (/geek).
And finally, for Ramza's Ultima. I completely see what you mean by that quote. It especially represents his frame of mind when he's able to get Ultima (Chapter IV is the earliest he could get it, IIRC, since I don't think he could get it at Riovanes Roof), so I suggest instead:

No, I used the quotes from Vanilla as a basis for SOME of the new quotes. I made up completely new quotes in the case of about 75% of the spells. I tried my best to retranslate the quotes in a way that fit the War of the Lions retranslation. I'll post the quotes as I have them retranslated (I know a few [probably most XD] of them need tweaking, but that can be done anytime), but you'll have to excuse any double posts. XD
I actually already finished most of the character-usable quotes yesterday (I was VERY bored XD) so I'll gladly post them if you guys want, since I know quite a few of them need some work. I was especially happy with my Time Magick quotes though.
EDIT: I guess I should clarify that I've retranslated the quotes already, but most of the quotes are completely new. They probably need to be shortened, too, to fit the text boxes. Also, note that the Japanese version of WOTL had quotes, they just didn't bother retranslating for the English version.
