Hearing that, I could almost feel the spittle.

I tried "The gods slay enemies," but Duo didn't go for it.

I often try synonyms that are descended from the Latin words I'm translating for the fun of it. This time I translated 'hostes' as 'hostiles' which I believe should be accepted, but it wasn't

This might sound dumb, but how could "enemy" be an adjective in this sentence? So as to read "the enemy god kills."

Deus hostilis interficit or Deus inimicus interficit, I suppose. Depending on how enemy the god is.
