    I voted for Altene.. after all I posted the question.. sort of. *eyeshift*

    Next, though, I say go for a culture that isn't so well developed. Maybe the reason there are so many Altene characters is that so much is available on them.

                      Egads Blackening, champ! I have to study for work enough as it is. Go pick on Gadaenes! They should be tormented for choosing a race that has the words raucous, unmanageable and undisciplined in the nation summary.

                      By the way, I hope you didn't think I was discounting your work. It is a very impressive list you have there. Is it based structurally around any specific language?

                        Nah. Based mostly upon the existing words, maybe a word or twelve formed from other languages, a touch of Latin and Germanic, but generally just my imagination.
