Regarding an old news post

The 4th Class

While reading the news archives on the main page, I noticed this one from April 2003:
Each of the three Orders has its own religion and its own holy language, used for spells.
In case anybody is interested, here's something that I'll be using for a future Hexen project. I doubt it will fit into SE, but I hope it's at least somewhat useful. And to prove they're not just random words, check the grammar. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

Hey now I suddenly recall something dimly, I think a long time ago there was a guy in RavenForums who was very excited about linguitics, or maybe it was even two guys, weren't you the one (or one of the two)? And I don't see why it wouldn't have any place in SE, maybe not as Gargoylian but under the name of some other folk's tongue at any rate!

Well I do think linguistics would be a really cool course to study in University, and a beneficial one: it can definitely give you a higher chance of success in the real world. And it runs in the blood (my great uncle was octolingual! <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: --> ) I don't remember very many linguistics threads in RavenForums. OTOH there were a few posted here on Korax' Heritage forums. I'm glad you like the idea, then. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> This "language" has actually had a few name changes, so one more won't hurt. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

Maybe the threads were here and not on RavenForums, don't remember any more. You don't seem to remember neither that I've studied linguistics. <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> (or maybe it was another guy too with whom the discussion was really on RavenForums and I told it him back then, dunno)

Hey don't worry man, I still remembered. As far as interests and hobbies go, you're the big brother I never had. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

LOL you say this because you don't know what I did to my little brother when we were kids. <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->

This seems interesting, but I think it will be complicated to make it work (just my thoughts). <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

In case anybody is interested, I left in my KDev folder a sample audio of Gargoylian. Here is the translation from the audio:
Mortal! Know that your soul is still your own by my whim. The tides of destiny will not save you at the appointed time. Know that we shall meet again. Tread lightly until then, for my wrath is legion.

Sounds good. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> We could use it as early as in KMOD 4.

I also like the idea, it sounds interesting and it may make the Hexen world have a bit more of culture sides.
