... except all of the races of creatures and most of the monsters are European in nature. No Oni, no Fusi, no Elder Gods or any of that. Just Elves and Dwarves and Kobolds, all of which are European fairy tales, mostly Norse in their genesis.
There are also Zombies (Haitian witch doctors... still European roots for their language).
And Vampires (Romanian stories... European roots for their language).
Dragons. But not the wise nature-spirit kind from Japan, the Fire Breathing European kind.
What we call "Fantasy" nowadays is all from European Fairy tales. Tolkien took hundreds of stories told from all over Europe and made it into a world which worked seamlessly. Heck, if you really look even his languages has European roots and sounds.
Why use a procedural word generator when we can just keep the words already created and make new ones? Due to adjectives/adverbs being at the end of words, tense indicators should definitely be at the front. Perfect tense could be kur-, future could be nim-, future-perfect could be kurnim- (sounds better than nimkur). Pluperfect could be pokur-, po being a universal prefix meaning "more"
This. We already have a system where the words for the language are defined. Personally I am working on trying to extend that list here:http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=108389.0
(And could really use some help, it's 400 words long just covering Basic English)
If some more grammar were to find it's way into the game, I would certainly not complain.
