Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

  • *Gasp!* ~What~ did that Courier Say?!?!

    [obviously edited]

    You begin to enter the south doorway.

    A short courier swears spitefully.

    You curtsy to Josey and Martina.

    OOC -- You say, "Is anyone noticing that the couriers are swearing more often?"
    OOC -- You say, "Or is that just me?"

    OOC -- Martina says, "They just got a pay reduction. "

    OOC -- Josey says, "huh... you're right."

    [Lols following]

    OOC -- Josey says to you, "Start a poll!"

    They hate the fact that they can't speak common, in efforts to learn they repeat whatever we say ;).

    Actually, I think the thing that should worry people is....

    If they don't speak Common, can they read it?
    And if they can't read it, how do they give the right letters to the right people?

    Does Dr. Getheaht just get Lith to take everyone's picture before she wheels them upstairs and write names underneath them in Common? Betcha they do... and it's posted somewhere we can't find it.

    (Don't laugh. They did that for my Lib Tech class in college and our teachers learned our names faster than we learned each other's....)

          I remember when, in talking to the couriers, they would respond with either:

          -- "As you wish."
          . . . or . . .
          -- "Right away!"

          ...which got fun sometimes on late nights. All you teanga GMs out there -- hook us up with the translations! What is going on!? ... Aside from all those rumors, that is.

            Well....

            Since I am the Teanga expert and all

            This is what the couriers will say when you talk to them:

            As you wish! (when the word 'scroll' is involved in what you say)
            Right away! (also when mentioning a scroll)
            At once! (...mentioning scroll)
            Sorry, I don't have time to speak!
            I'm afraid I don't understand.
            Of course.

            When they just talk to talk, they say all kinds of stuff...

            I guess people will just need to start getting teanga lessons.
