Re: an Animatic setting

This began as part of my attempt to illustrate as many concepts from my religion textbook and my old anthropology textbook as I could...which grew into the idea of trying to flesh out at least a little bit of "what would a society with THIS underlying it, look like?...or at least what sort of myths...

Re: Interested in a conlanging challenge?

There haven't been a conlanging challenge for a while. Would anybody be interested to make one? I'm personally running a bit out of ideas, so I would be happy if somebody else made in. I'd be glad to observe one, and would try to take part.. .*i says, knowing I keep falling behind each time we have...

Re: (C&C) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

Would a humanoid race that has tails make things inconvenient, like sitting or wearing pants? What are some ways to get around this? I'm talking about anthropomorphic animals, of course. that probably depends on things like how flexible are their tails, particularly where the tail attaches to the b...

Re: Deadly Sins of Worldbuilding

I confess I got distracted by your map...I thought it said "Narnia"...and I spent the next five minutes trying to recall if I'd ever read anything about Hux in any of Lewis' writings or fanfics based on them. Its a good starting point, that list of yours...though I'm wondering if there is a deeper r...

if you're referring to the Triassic, yes they did - the equitorial zones were barely habitable.

Re: Making a logography, so intimidating

just start with the writing system you want your main conlang/conculture to use...and every so often, sprinkle in references to earlier stages (that you can elaborate on - or leave unresolved - at a later time)...such as "the two [p]s stem from an earlier syllabary which, through erosion and a chang...

Re: (Conlangs) Q&A Thread - Quick questions go here

I have two civilizations in relatively constant contact with each other by way of coastal trade, despite the two civilizations being hundreds of kilometres apart. But the contact is frequent enough that one civilization adopts the writing system of the other. Problem is one of the languages has cli...

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I made a chart showing - in order - the Korean script & the IPA for each sign, then the IPA for Italian, then the IPA for Latin American & European Spanish. I'm not 100% sure why I did all that; I think my original idea was to see what patterns I could observe & then use those patterns to expand the...

maybe take some of the arcs (like Ka or Ga), and put dots or dashes inside the curve, rather than alongside it?

I realized my case assignments for Silvish were almost entirely backwards, given they descend from Latin. [>_<] So that's fun.

Re: Assistance sought with very far future setting

The only possible way I could even slightly wrap my head around that kind of choice that a group of people would consciously make together would be this. They are all some part of a sort of futuristic joint-stock venture whereby, in order to even sign up to be part of the crew or the colonists, you...

um, why would it? people have been domesticating and inventing time- and labor-saving devices for millenia.
