Languages

Unread post by Vogar Eol » Mon Apr 09, 2018 2:17 pm

I realize we already have a lot of languages here on BGTSCC. This is true even if you count only the class, racial, and planar languages. Then we've added in many regional and local languages as well... but I see two needs for improvement.

Firstly, various MAIN Faerun dialects have been left out. "Easting" in particular encompasses the majority of the Raven's Bluff, Procampur, and The Vast. We have Damaran, which is a language of equal popularity to Easting, but no Easting nor one of it's sub dialects. I propose source material be used to compile a list of the major regional languages (even if sub-dialects are skipped).

Second, and lastly... I propose the UI language selection box be reorganized. This should be a simple alphabetical listing of our languages. That would prevent a need to hunt to select a language, and improve the player experience a bit.

The first item sounds like something to talk to the DMs about. The second thing is definitely doable. I'll forward that to Valefort.

Valefort told me how to fix this. I'll try to get to it by Tuesday.

Thank you for looking into this so quickly. I'll make a list of languages and the source material for a DM team proposal this weekend.

OK, should be all set. Whenever the next update gets staged, all the languages should be in alphabetical order. If it's not, or if languages are all broken now and there's some kind of catastrophe, remember to blame Valefort. (I get the credit if it works, though.)
