I was recently asked about what my tagline says.
I wondered why they didn't just Google it.
Google gets the translation really wrong.
Here is what it says:

ADVERSUS VICTUS MORTUUS TANTUM CAPUT MISSA PENDO
translated is
AGAINST LIVING DEAD ONLY HEAD SHOTS COUNT
ADVERSUS VICTUS MORTUUS TANTUM CAPUT MISSA PENDO

I could help with translation but I am not very creative.

How about "death is only the beginning"?

Snip

"mors inceptio solum est" would be my pick because it's more dramatic. this literally means "death is only the inception."

"mors initium solum est" is more like "death is only the start," as in "ab initio," lit. "from the start."

there are a few other nouns that could stand for "beginning," but initium, initii (2nd declension neuter) is the one you'd find in a dictionary.
