I think I found you. Are you by the same name because there is only one by the name of Thakowsaizmu.
One just isn't enough.

I am praying for you all, with sincerity and on occasion gritted teeth.

I seldom think before I speak.
That requires patience, an art I have little practice in.

I played a game of it once, but it was only to get with a girl. She was incredible. Still think about her. Gee, I'd even LARP for that lady.

Okay, well I don't know anything about DnD.

I was lucky enough that my fellow linguistics major loved talking about linguistics. But I never talked to them about conlanging, probably because I didn't have any time to work on it then.

What stories! Let's start the conlanger's Religion of Con. It aught to be fun. I myself won't practice it if it goes to far. I like the kosher idea. But that is only because I found out sheep done right taste like a combo of pork and beef fused perfectly. We could use Jewish law as a base and do what we want to to it and move on from there. A manifesto is mandatory, like Romans is to Christian although I've only heard it twice.

Okay, I'm sold. Let's do this nasty thang.

I vote that our law be based on Kantian ideas, maybe a little Objectivism, ooh and some Nietzsche. There must be Lovecraftian monsters. All things are permitted, but some things are punished severely. Theft is okay, but Fraud is punishable by Cosmic Vitiation (like being banned and spat at, twice).

I will compose hymns to the Dark Gods we serve, the Mumblers and the Inventors of Nonsense. They invented us, and so in turn we invent them (and other things). Fact and Fiction are our two sacraments; Fact informs our minds, Fiction twists our hearts. One without the other is vile, and together they make beautiful Nonsense fit for our Dark Masters.

I am already working on a First Testament of Nonsense. It'll be like Time Cube, but sicker. All hail the Gibberish-Spewing Scum! May its names be despised!

A definition is not a substitute for understanding outside of mathematics. Religions exist because those who practice them believe it to benefit them in some way. Whether a politician starts going to church on sundays to win over voters, or someone sacrifices a lamb to bring a good harvest that year. People don't just make up religions and start seriously following them because they sound cool.

I sacrifice lambs for my own (delicious) benefit. :D

Apparently, I've given up on helpful posting.

I wasn'y going to start following it. And I know what Christianity is and how it works on the most fundamental level. I practice and believe, that is what matters to me(it's kind of hard not to).

The PCK's intro to (con)religion is pretty good I must say, partly because it explains why that dictionary definition is quite insufficient with regards to conreligion.
Sound change works in mysterious ways.

I'm still debating over buying the PCK. I know it's only 15 bucks but I'm incredibly cheap.

The only reason I haven't is I don't have a credit card although that might be a good thing.

I'm reluctant after reading a few unfavorable reviews of the LCK book. And I've read a few of Zompist's political rantings. If he applied this thinking to his "conworlding tips" then they won't be very useful.
