  • Altene Language

    While the xfuj.com site was still up, there was a page devoted to (somebody's) work on the Altene language. I used to refer to these while playing my character-- and with the Chargen the way it is, there's no shortage of Altenes-- but now that it's down, I'm really missing the resoure. Does anyone have the page in their hardrive or have a link to an active site? I'd recommend posting it here since the forums are less likely to go down than most player sites.

    Google searched and found that.

    I feel like there was a more extensive version on that site that's down, so feel free to keep searching.

      With as many Altenes there are in-game, you'd think the city is run by them by now.

      I kind of wish I wasn't one now, but it kind of fit the character concept at the time... just so many other Altenes and I barely know anything about the actual people beyond the basics, ahahaha...

          TEC needs an official wiki, or something where we can collect all the commonly known game lore and then, most importantly, fill in the giant holes of information that just doesn't exist. I'm not even sure what the policies are about inventing 'factual' events, places, history, ect.. but I don't seem to remember that working in our favor.

          TEC is unfinished. They could at least find some writers to just sit around and write things for the game.

            Haha, when there isn't a way for me to find out, I honestly just make it up. They can correct me if they really want to, but I'm not going to sacrifice fun RP to wait around for someone to tell me things I really can't find out, IG or on some wiki.

            That said, I don't invent a ton, just some things to get over bumps and continue a story. Inventing histories involving known people I'd think is mostly off-limits, because then you're spreading false history throughout the game. Unless it's your character's role to do something like that, eh.. I wouldn't go there.

              Almost all lore was/is player created. GMs ran with some of it and endorsed it, others just fell to the side.

                            you want to speak the altene language? ok, very easy... type... SPEAK ALTENE.
                            that's all there is to it, stop speaking "altene" in common, you chose to speak common, translate your words, or speak poorly in common.

                              Dear Archmagi,

                              Why do you have to argue about something that other people enjoy that has absolutely no effect on you?

                              Sincerely,

                              Ravenlark

                              XOXOXO
                              I have buried my heart in an egg, in a duck, in a hare, in a chest, under an oak, on an island in the middle of the sea.
