Re: Forum News discussion/feedback thread

I think Aszev would have to do the work on that one, but I'm sort of 50/50 on a "like" button as a feature. I actually PMed him a while back to bring this thread to his attention but he still didn't open the PM. Either he's flooded with messages or not around much. I'm not holding my breath for any...

Re: What would be the best approach for an Antarctic 'lang?

Although a stretch, possibly include a smattering of Palawa kani (Tasmanian) ¿?
That would be interesting if Tasmanians followed seal-hunting via MacQuarie Island and arrived at Antarctica.

Mebbe Maori ¿¿??

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

Hey there! So, I'm looking into how PIE evolved into Latin. I've found a source on the changes up to Proto-Italic, but beyond that, I've yet to really find anything I can use. Any good sources on this out there? Thanks! Sorry that I don’t have time to give a more thorough answer right now, but here...

The Three Billy Goats Gruff

One of my all time favorite stories

It's up to you whether the three goats are Kid, Father and Grandfather goat, or Kid, Nanny and Billy.

Re: Good texts to translate into Proto Indo European derivatives?

Another concise subset of texts are the logia of the Gospel of Thomas. Therein are found many of the 'classic' (i.e. synoptic) parables, but usually in a much shorter and oft-times pithier format.

Re: Good texts to translate into Proto Indo European derivatives?

Another, via Elemtilas, a very noice mantra from the Tenxwwar Haryuça themselves: wárkasssweti sass-he wiros-tos: pâtâto pataxartassan-ca; pâtâto xowan-can; ffrencato pûrahamtar-ta pûray-cây sactussa. These things a man should do: feed the hungry; feed the cattle; bring firewood to the holy fire.

Re: what should my bug people eat

As for sapient bugs eating members of a different species of sapient bugs, part of me thinks that might be unlikely anyway, though. On the one hand, sure, one species might not have anything against eating another. On the other hand, surely the sapient species would be better at defending themselve...

]also, there are non sapient bugs now to avoid the whole issue Ah. Paracannibalism. Frankly, I'd just go with the full-on cannibalism and let those be shocked as will be shocked. Insects are the stars of shock & awe. I just saw a video about mantises, where a recently copulating pair of mantises ge...

Make them eat human flesh Ha ha! Not unlike the Ovions from original Battlestar Galactica (!?) Alternatively, the insects could infect the humans with a sort of zombie-fungus. The fungus makes the humans go rabid-belligerent, humans attack and kill other. The insects then harvest the dead humans, a...
