Wow, you guys are quick to jump on the "Bell has abandoned us" bandwagon.  ;)

Fear not, for this is still living.  In fact, these days, this is pretty much the only thing I still do on the BG boards. Ever since Soulknife was eliminated in the favorite class thread, This is all I've checked and kept up with.

Besides, haven't you guys figured out how it works yet? I post something, then there's a flurry of posts for about a day or two, then nothing happens for 3 days or so, then the cycle starts over.

Anyway, new post over in the game thread once I get it typed up, so look out for that.  :D

Also, I'm glad this is everyone's favorite game, since one, it's my first GMing of any kind, and two, When I first recruited players, and for about the first page or so of the game thread, everything was made up as I went along. I have plans now, but originally I was just winging it. ;)

And since I'm thinking about it, two questions.
1)Did you guys ever decide on a language that you all knew so you could talk in private? I know Romulan was discussed, but I don't think it was discussed very seriously.
2)Also, do any of you fluently speak any language other than English (in real life), preferably Spanish, Portuguese, or something along those lines, or at least know enough to translate things from English into that language?

1) No.
2) I know enough Spanish to work with it (usually).  I also own a Spanish to English dictionary from my High School days.

Might I suggest that you do that now, so it can be retconned in?
Don't forget, this teamspeak language is a bonus. It is in addition to any you may have had your character learn by spending skill points, and you get both speak and read/write for this bonus language.
And the reason I ask about spanish is that you have made it to south america, and such languages are spoken there, so I may need someone to translate some text for purposes of authenticity.

1) I'm fine with any language really, although I'm afraid that Spanish, German or French would be too 'common' or 'mainstream' for a secret language...

2) The only language aside from English that I really speak fluently is Dutch.


We could just pick a language and post in English in the thread, but announcing we're saying this in our secret language.

Example: [Klingon]"Dog, attack they're left flank!"[/Klingon]


Just some thoughts :)

I agree, just saying something in english is doable, but not as authentic as writing in the actual language. the reason I was asking is that for example, only one character knows spanish, so it would be up to him to translate any spanish you might come across, but if I wrote in english, then everyone would just know what was being said.

But yes, for your teamspeak language, using english and just saying it's whatever language is perfectly acceptable.

Cool :)

So, you guys have any ideas? Klingon would be rare enough I think, but are our characters big enough geeks to actually speak it fluently? :P

Hear Ye, Hear Ye! 

By the end of the day today, there should be an update. Don't expect a particularly long one, as I have tons of work today, but there will be some continuation by the end of the day. Also, I am planning on updating again tomorrow. I will not, however update this weekend, as I will be away from the internet from early Friday morning until late Sunday.

That is all.
