    Wow. Either something subconscious, or very much coincidence. Heh. Nice. Didn't even notice that, Jolee.

    The words were added to The Underground. Link's near the bottom on the sidebar.

    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.

    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?

    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.
