Do you think you could make a Rock language? If there's one already, I can't seem to find it.

On it!

Re: The Language of the Mantis

Not to destroy this translator's use, but I've ran into an encounter that showed mantis have a language: "A series of clicks and gurgles come from the communications. The universal translator may be in blink, but the intention is clear." It's not word-for-word, but it's the best I remembe...

Re: The Language of the Mantis

That's a super awesome concept. I think it'd be kinda cumbersome to handwrite though... You know what? I'll up the ante one. When I get home I'll make something that works for hand writing inspired by this, and then I'll make a font so it can be typed easily! Well, I thought about doing a custom fo...

Re: Who is the player?

Honestly, I think the player might be the wonderful image featured in your sig. The only possible response to that preposterous idea: http://pastebin.com/FA0CS7vW . How dare you accuse me of hearsay! It is common knowledge to us that aren't peasants that Obama is secretly an satanic communist illum...

Re: The Language of the Mantis

...Welp, that'll take a while. I mean, what characters would I even use for that...? I dunno, but at least it'll be easier than the Slug language. They've probably got like a thousand words for "profit" That's if they even have a language considering all the telepathy. You could try the R...

Re: The Language of the Mantis

Thanks! This isn't really all that good TBH. It's not technically a language, but rather a substitution cypher. Also, any ideas what the language of the Zoltan would look like? Something orderly yet spiritual? Maybe look at how ancient monks wrote their books and think of something like that. Altho...

Re: Who is the player?

This is what I always figured. Federation law states that a clear chain of command must exist on each military vessel. Every single person on the ship has a place in line, and if the captain dies everybody just moves up one in the chain. Regarding pausing and all that, that's just an abstraction fo...
