Re: Out of Character 8
That kind of work can work you about to death when the **** hits the fan.  But, you leave at the end of the day knowing you saved lives.  On a good day you see the relief on the faces of the family members, and might even get a thank you from someone who knows what you've done.  It really matters when you make a difference like that.

Re: Out of Character 8
In reply to Balir Ironhide (msg # 217):

innapropriate use of Languages:

I have decided to use the high valerian translator and the R'lyeh translator for Eldrich, and the Black Speech of Mordor for goblin, for those trying to run my gobbledygook  through babelfish or google translate. only problem comes up with  ASCII characters that rpol's htm will not support.  For elvish I will use a Sindarin translator.
That one takes some doing, but you can use it to render the Swabian Salute of Gottfried "Götz" von Berlichingen. I find that I am happy with any language that let's me say that.

Elvish: Lefi- mui adel
R'lyehian: lllln'gha ya mgep
Goblin does it best: kiukuk mausan aukuk
Shevnisn (Slovak) does well: pobozkaj mi zadok
Likewise Orcish (slovakian): Poljubi me v rit
And of course, Aralaise: va te faire foutre
and Valdassyan (arabic) has a single word: amlalquni

High valerian can't do it.

Strangely, some words don't reverse translate; the name of the demon from the thread here https://rpol.net/display.cgi?gi=56335&ti=131&date=1527802723 had originally been translated a bit differently, as this rude phrase

Spoiler text: (Highlight or hover over the text to view)
pig fucker
and now means something different.

You could use the English "Bugger"  and call him Pig Bugger...

Re: Out of Character 8
Well, as I understand it (and I could be wrong, haven't looked there in a long time), the online Valyrian translator is based almost entirely on words and phrases that have appeared in the GOT series or in Martin's novels.  Given Martin isn't a philologist like Tolkien was, he didn't go out of his way to create complete languages; he just threw in semi-random words with the sound he wanted.

Let me make a note to myself: R'lyeh and/or Valyrian for Eldritch.  That's the same as what I've been calling Elder Speech, right?

BTW, "Near the Bone Gate" is showing 998 posts in thread.  Not sure why the game menu shows only 990.

And as I mentioned in that thread, NO ONE SHOULD POST IN IT ANYMORE*.  If it hits 1k posts it stops being searchable.

Also, we are onboarding more juniors, one is a swashbuckler type, and they may forma team with Leroy, and any defectors from the main group, or Masugatan when he gets back with the loot from Balar.

I haven't gotten to Aegis, but he'll be along with the end of the Hoard thread as well, I would think.  Not sure how many players we have among the characters, but he'll be available if needed.  Depends on time commitments and all, and what the interest is.  I don't have to break him out if we have all the slots filled.

As I was onboarding two at 125, I have to see what the second one is. A spellcaster or a thief would be good.


Jareth, Mario, found that reference. Pay comes after.

I am forming an alternate group of juniors (without Ymid) for some onboarding players.
Leroy can be poart of that group. There is a swashbuckler named Wiley Filcher, and two others not settled yet (one may be an apprentice wizard). Anita could join them, as everyone is kinda stealthy so far. if the last guy picks an archer then we have a good group

Okay, so we're fronting the money for all those exotic materials, including more than a dozen royals for the flying potion?  Unless others are doing a lot better than I am, or we quickly find a safe(ish) way to dispose of Alaric's sword and its gem, we haven't got that kind of money in loose coin...

Read the Dismal Tower thread, you have a potential barter situation.
