For a prettified 'abandoned idea', this is actually very good. Go to Comment

I agree with Chaos.



I think this managed to say a lot in very few words. The very last paragraph confused me, though. If they're worth the strength of a dozen men, why do so few survive their first battle?

I agree with Mystic on this, it gives a good idea that a common language would exsist. In my world I do not have a common language but I do have a Traders Common which is a very limited form of communication existing of approximately 200 to 300 words that can be used mainly for trade and little else. Similar to Chinese Pidgin English except a bit more limited.

Pariah's comment on 2012-03-18 10:03 PM
Yeah, I needed something that most English speakers would understand, I could've used basically any English dialect that carried with it some stigma, but Ebonics is one of the more studied due to race relations and what not. Also, it's nice having someone that's actually studied linguistics tell me that this is solid, I was just building off my experiences as an interpreter/language learner/philomath. Go to Comment

Nice. Straightforward and useful to compare/contrast with game-world equivalents. And i learned a few new things.

 I do love these type of articles - there is just so much to language and this is a good resource for worldbuilding.

I will probably end up using the pidgins more than anything else, but I do like the idea of there not being just one 'common' language even if it can become a little bit unwieldy.

Very informative. While I've had a vague notion of what some of those terms meant, it is nice to have it spelled out for me with good examples that really make it easy to grasp.



Having Common in games has always been a useful device for sidestepping problems that could overly complicate things, but it's always seemed a little too generic. But looking at this, I can see how there could be a common language that is based around the dominant political power and give more flavor in the process.

Psykie's comment on 2012-03-18 05:45 PM


Very interesting indeed.



I used to be a student of Linguistics (well, still am I suppose) and, whilst Ebonics is somewhat more of a dialect, it still holds up to the basic strictures you are trying to explain, so, well done!



Despite this linguistic background, however, I seldom thought about this sort of thing... I've used different langauges successfully in campaigns, but I've never really analysed what "Common" was. Damn my Anglocentric mind!



Thank you for writing such an article to get me thinking!

A good tool to use whenever you feel like building a world. Now that I think about it, I should really figure out what 'common' is in my current world that I'm building- Atheus. Go to Comment

I've read this before as a lurker, but I really needed to re-read it, as I've found myself glossing over this part in my own campaign recently, and this is a nice and easy way of introducing a bit more cultural flavour. It was all presented in a very professional and exhaustive manner, with excellent spelling. I'm giving this a HoH, will be sure to read more subs from you. :) Go to Comment

I actually didn't care for the prose, tone, or voice much. To me, the writing was very dry and reeks of an elderly history teacher droning on about an uninteresting subject. However, the subject was interesting and I felt compelled to finish reading it. I got the feeling of a lot of empty words, as if there wasn't a ton of eagerness and desire to impress an idea in the words. Almost as if it was just being written to convey knowledge. And while this isn't a style of writing I enjoy reading, I was impressed at the way it was delivered.



The overall content itself felt scarce, but was nonetheless intriguing. I like it, and I like it because I want to dislike it for its wording and presentation, which didn't appeal to me yet drew me in and immersed me irregardless.



Good work.

"..revealing of bizarre information in a hazy manner." Muro, lol:D

I like this, but I did expected additional information after Gymas writings. Not sure if it felt complete enough for a society. Otherwise: Good job! 4.0

Awesome, Pariah!

Love the prose, tone and voice. Any 'Day-in-the-Life' type of additions? Or is this ready?

They LIVE!



I have some perverse fascination with Gyma the Explorer's travels and writings, from Pariah's previous subs. Something about his irreverent tone, and the revealing of bizarre information in a hazy manner. Love some of the details here. I guess I'm biased. Love the P'Cheela! :)
