So, seeing as BZPRPG is getting to the point of stagnancy which sees mosquitos start to look to it as a breeding ground, and it doesn't seem like that's gonna change for a while, I'd like to open a discussion (miiiight not be the right choice of words, considering I'll probably be the only one reading and discussing hahaha). -What NEW things would you like to see implemented in the new BZPRPG arc? -What OLD things would you like to see brought back? -For those of you with experience TBRPing on other forums: what are some things that worked in other TBRPGs that could work in BZPRPG? I had more questions, but now I'm distracted, so that's all ya get. Let me know what you all think! ALSO DON'T READ MY OLD BLOG POSTS OH BOY ARE THEY CRINGE-WORTHY.
So in preparation for NaNoWriMo I'm working on a conlang. What is a conlang, you ask? A conlang is an articficially constructed language, often created either for intercutural communication (like Esperanto) or for works of fiction (like Tolkien's Elvish languages or Klingon). I am currently working on a language designed to be the language of the human kingdom which is the primary focus of the first part of my story. The language is set up to resemble a generic Indo-European language. What's that mean? Well, the Indo-European language family is the most widespread and widely spoken language family in the world. Its members include English, Spanish, Russian, Greek, Persian, and Hindi. These languages are generally characterized by have a complex, isolating grammar system (that means nouns decline and verbs conjugate by adding prefixes or suffixes); English is an exception here; most of its endings have been whittled away through time. The language I am creating is not an exception. IE languages are also characterized by having a fairly high number of stop (short, hard sounds like "P", "D", "G", "K", etc.) compared to a low number of fricatives (long, hissy sounds like "S", "TH", "V", etc.). Again, English (and in this case its close relatives, like German and Norwegian), is an exception here. And again, my language is not. Vocabulary-wise I've drawn heavily from English, however, but also from Latin and German; once again, it's supposed to be a generic Indo-European language for a generic Indo-European society. So, does anybody else here conlang or enjoy linguistics?
