Maybe I should better review my books. I must have missed that part in all the skim reading. Sorry guys. But still, I think Kin slaying is up there on the jerk list right? Oh well, I'll drop it now seeing as the topic appears to have been shifted to Latin. I've never actually learned any of it, but it makes a great way for writing up spells and actually having them sounds mystical. I do that. Shame on me, I know, but I do what I must to keep the Roleplaying campaign interesting.

Latinized spell names, huh? I'd like to see yours sometime. I suspect the Harry Potter series does that too, so you're not alone. Try learning the language sometime! It's fun!

Accidentally filming porn is exactly why I signed up for this job! KHAAAAAN

Also, in regards to them using pseudo-latin when creating spells in Harry Potter:
Yes, yes they did.

Captain, I had marooned you at the Crossroads to die. And yet, here I find you with your cohorts calling my name. Tell me, how have you fared? Did you suffer as I did when you left me on that blasted sand trap! Rant Rant Rant

Hahaha! Sorry, Xiao. That's the first time I've done that to anyone, to be sure. I hope you're better now. (hug)

It was totally worth it. Mwahahahaha! Cheese!

I have a great avatar somewhere. It's Zachary Quinto as Spock, and it reads 'Only Zachary Quinto could take a phrase like "Live Long and Prosper" and make it sound like f--- off and DIAF'

It's awesome.

Myself speaks two languages. German as native tongue and more or less english, lacking a bit on exercises there. ^^ Reading/writing isn't that bad (even if some words might baffle me cause i don't know them), it's more the talking which is my weak department. ^^
