I'm proud to announce that my first requested language is finished.

Dryym's Demonic language has been fully constructed, save for being populated with words. I encourage you to check it out in the 2nd post on this topic.

The entire project took a total of around 150 hours at most, over the course of about 2 months. I've had other things going on in my life, so this wasn't a priority.

Once again, if the topic becomes more popular, I will be more than willing to devote more time to creating more languages.

For those wondering, My SIG says
Sahalam
Su
<Dryym>

Meaning "Universe from Dryym" Dryym in this case being the Dragon god from which all Dragonkind and their derivitaves were spawned.

Demons have held a good relationship with Dragons throughout their evolution. Another reason why Humans are intimidated by them.

It seems like if you were going to use a custom language, you need to use English letters, otherwise you can't use them on signs, unless you could make them from symbols ( |< | |_ |_ , etc).

I think I'm going to stick with FFX Al-Bhed as it is easy enough to solve with letter substitution and it has an easily obtainable guide.

Actually, I was planning on using particles for any Demonic writing in the map. And if you try to talk to a Demon without having read a book on Demonic, It'll just say "The Demon said something in a language you do not understand."


I figure if you hear something in a language you understand, It'll be easier to understand right away than if you read something in a different language.


Worst comes to worst, I could just spell things out phonetically.

This may be a dumb question but. If the player is not on the forums and don't know what you mean will there be easy translation or subtitles?

As I said earlier, For actual dialogue, I plan on either making Demons in a map just unintelligible unless you know the language, Or I may try to latinize the Demonic alphabet, And turn it into English text when you read about demonic.


I mostly plan to use the Demonic language for other things in my universe, And Demonic builds.

It'll be fun to speak and use for stories and such, But I am unsure as to how I will use it in TM right now.

It would be cool to control letter substitution to where you can make Z equal a S or something, so you could automatically have a system where is the player has a history or Translate\Z it replaces all Z in the [Text] parameter to a S.

Example.

XZ J BI4V 7074I WJ/V3P J 3/NL0V (4>|3

would translate to:

As I play total miner I enjoy cake

...assuming they found each book on translating the language.


I have absolutely no idea him it would be set up or done though, other than having a Chechen for every permutation of each letter and have it retyped for that 1 sentence. That would be a pain

That would be a cipher, Not a language. While useful, It wouldn't help.
