Writing systems

Post  The Engineer on Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:18 am

As some players have started to discover the art of writing (in-game), I thought this page could be of great inspiration to you all. ^^

I have a tip for all of you would-be literati; don't all create flat-out copies of the Latin script. True alphabets, containing letters for vowels and consonants, are actually fairly uncommon in the world (almost all of them developed out of Greek) and were developed much later than other systems.

If every culture in the game has a standard alphabet with 25-ish letters representing the standards sounds of English, wouldn't that be awfully boring?

Just blank slate using an established fictional or real alphabet (not designing one yourself) is almost on par with having a hero named "Conan the barbarian" or "Vilhelm Tell". I do not condone such a behaviour.

At all.
