I've seen a good few conlangs (constructed languages, also called invented languages) floating around Achaea. I'm not sure Qith was the first, but it was the first I became aware of back in the day as I played a series of many (mostly Mhaldorian) alts who at this point even I have forgotten.
I'm not sure why these aren't discussed in general in forums, especially since conlangs have been used as an RP device as long as they have. Lord of the Rings had at least three. I mean the books, not the movies.
One may claim that I've put this post in the wrong section, that conlangs are works of art and should therefore be discussed in the Dais of Creation section. One might be correct. After all, 'found poetry' is a thing. I chose to put this here because I see Achaean conlangs as a tool to enhance immersion.
One may also consider Achaean conlangs annoying and/or 'obsolete' since Achaea has language mechanics. If we all agreed with this, then there wouldn't still be people working to develop existing ones further, and no new ones would have sprung up. Not that I've ever met more than a few enthusiasts of any one specific Achaean language. We don't have that many people.
I suspect (but of course can't confirm in any meaningful way) that Achaea has a higher percentage of conlang enthusiasts compared to people in general. That number gets higher if you begin to consider that technically, all computer languages are conlangs - but of course, none of those are specific to Achaea. Yet? As far as I know.
Do you like Achaean conlangs? In general or in specific. Have you ever tried to create or improve one? Have you ever tried to learn one?
Most of the conlangs meant for entertainment (think Dothraki or Klingon) have one specific person (at a time) who is the only person authorised to add vocabulary to a conlang. The lack of a designated person for the various Achaean conlangs can and probably has resulted in quibbles regarding whose word for 'soup' (as an example) is correct in this or that conlang whose original creator is unavailable for clarification.
Since people are likely to keep creating/improving/using conlangs, often for ritual purposes, do you think that Achaea should consider something like sanctioning a few people as 'official' linguists for the various Achaean conlangs?
Should there be a list of Achaean conlangs in forums? I'm pretty sure that I'm a bit familiar with at least one whose primary in-game speakers would disapprove of such open acknowledgement, even out-of-game, of its existence. This is why Qith is the only one I've named, and the only one I will name in this post. I'm pretty sure @Tekla
doesn't mind, but I've been wrong before. If admins edit all instances of the name of Tekla's language in this post to some random English word, you'll know why. (I'd like to suggest 'chocolate,' or maybe 'sidewinder.' Both of these words remind me of ways Tekla has improved Achaea in some way.)
Finally, have you got any questions about Achaean conlangs or ideas for one of your own that you're willing to share?
