    Hello.

    I have a question with understanding this word - "hovel" in this context.
    dlc1_campaign2_huntress_line6 "What a hovel!"
    The direct translation of "hovel" is a very bad looking dwelling.
    What sounds strange, for a patrol who simply walks on the road and does not visit the living quarters.

    I translated it, but I'm not sure what's right.
    The patrol leader says that all nature around looks very bad (volcanic earth, lava, etc.)?

    The huntress is basically saying your dungeon/the area around it looks like a bad dwelling so yes sounds like your translation is probably right.

    Hi sunheretic13,

    Yup, Nutter's explanation is correct. The patrol leader (Lord Coleem) may sometimes comment about how beautiful the area is, but that's because he loves nature and appreciates the natural beauty of the world. Whereas the Huntress just thinks the place is dirty and horrible, especially since it is inhabited by an Underlord.
