Re: The Multiverse Inn

There are so many things here that are just wrong. Confusion is far too light of a word for the expression on Marcella's face right now. Ignoring the weird cultural tidbits like whatever a university or a train or a semester is, there is something very, very fundamentally strange here. "Normal day-t...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

What's Semitone like? Argenzu asks. He's firing up his laptop. After about 30 seconds, he opens up a picture of Buonavalle. It shows the remains of the second forum , south of the historic city centre, built in late antiquity. "Oh, it's nice. Buildings are mostly stone, of course. That's why it's n...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

Slowly, Argenzu calms down. Then he turns to Marcella: So, are you really homeless? Marcella considers the door, then carefully takes off one of her socks. "You mad or something? I have thieves' hands- no one'd let me in come streetdark if I had to go knocking. Nah, I got an apartment in Semistone....

Re: Has anyone tried to Sketch langs from The Elder Scrolls?

For video game languages, the project that immediately comes to mind is Project Elvhen, an attempt to develop the Elven language that we hear snippets of in the Dragon Age setting.

Re: The Multiverse Inn

[A significant chewing-out] The man really has no idea what kind of significance 'filming' is, or what that device is, or what the flash means. For all his bluster and declarations of his country being the most civilized one in existence, the world of Maliter just isn't that technologically-advance...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

[Lots of stuff] Yes, that was quite a speech. Pity the man started tuning it out right around 'nothing gives you the right.' He was good at tuning things out that he didn't want to hear, though usually he only did it when someone started going on about the downturn in House Otla's finances. That wa...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

All languages matter... Do you speak Wínlandisc? Buonavallese? Old Alanic? Latin? That's all languages of civilized people, And I speak two of them with native or near-native fluency. And that's not the end. Each of the people behind the languages has — or had — its own definition of ‘civilization’...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

((For clarification I'm going to start color-coding speech. Red for Otla Hatil and blue for Marcella.)) Berenice turns to the colourful man: 'Civilized'? Who are you to judge? You don't need to listen to everyone. Let the old man do his business and drink your booze. Argenzu looks at Berenice and sm...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

a wizened old man, rather short, bald apart from a few wispy hairs, wearing a dusty old smock and leggings and a broad-brimmed, slightly conical cloth & twig-framed hat sidles out from the small closet near the comfort rooms. one or two of the denizens turn at his quiet, humming movements, but they...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

If not gangs, then bullies. Real friends don't encourage people to do things of, well, advanced stupidity, haha. Trespassing, yes, for the thrills, but not stealing – or worse. Huh, monastic care, alms, that's charity done by religious orders. They give to the poor of what they have too much. If yo...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

Corporal punishment, huh? Argenzu reaches into his bag and gets out a digital camera , connects it to his laptop and presses a button on the cam. Then he closes the bag and places it so that it hangs on his tail – while it still is on the ground. So you have laws punishing theft. Why did you steal,...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

Argenzu gets up and pulls his stool to the other side, so he can see the woman better (his glasses don't emit x-rays, you know). Nonsense. I've been here twice — Argenzu Montéis is my name, and I've brought companions with me. This inn is open to all worlds, parallel universes. You'll find your way...

Re: Climate Woes

I'm afraid my own knowledge of climates boils down to "remember rain shadows," but there was a similar thread here a while back had some interesting links posted to it: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=4596

Re: The Multiverse Inn

Berenice and Argenzu both see the woman and chuckle at the sight. Madam, the door is to remain shut. The weather is turning out against our favour and some of the guests may feel irritated , Argenzu says. He then pulls up the screen of his laptop and looks at the screen. Berenice stares at the woma...

Re: The Multiverse Inn

A woman walks in, blinks, then kicks off a shoe and braces the door open with it. As far as she knows, the door might not go back to her world anymore if she were to let it shut, so it's best not to take that risk. Now, that is a lot of non-humans, of a bigger variety than she's ever seen in her lif...
