    The ring is kinda a gift from a god. She can keep it as a reminder of us.

    The ring is a personal gift, so no problem with that. The gloves are a part of the loot, distributed according to a mutual agreement. Well, I doubt Gregor will like to be told that she will pay her debt... eventually... if they ever meet. On the other hand, if Delphi returns the gloves, she turns from debtor into creditor, and her share of the loot is potentially payable with group's funds and/or items.

    Yeah, we haven't had to update that spreadsheet in a while. I think Grath still owes like 50 gold or something.

    EDIT: per the spreadsheet, 61.04 gold

    Hmmm, anyone got anything else they want to do tonight? Think Dardiana's the only one with any sort of hook to work with.

    If there's no more action anyone wants tonight I'll play the NEXT MORNING card.

    Insofar as you can tell when it's morning in this place.

    As for the gloves...it would be very unnatural for her to just randomly hand them over to somebody else, but I promise that have a bit of patience and they'll wind up back in group inventory.

    I'm ready for next morning if you are. And while I'm not worried, per se, about the gloves, Delphi would be massively in debt if she left the party in some way with the gloves.

    Grath is swearing in orcish, by the way. Such a language for swears. Doesn't translate well, though.

    I have a running gag: Elvish is French, Undercommon is therefore Spanish, and Sylvan is Italian. Celestial is Latin.

    Draconic is Arabic. Seems to suit it's usual context. Infernal is bad Japanese.

    Problem is I don't speak any of these languages. This is because some variation of "I'm sorry, I'm an idiot" coupled with the right demeanor and body language will get you what you need surprisingly often. At least if you're tall and scary-looking.

    So please don't start talking to your Fey in Italian, unless you want this to turn into a succession of google-translation jokes.

    Please don't talk about Chinese.

    I didn't notice it so much in Jiangsu, but in Shantung they have the habit of repeating "that...that...that...that..." when they're thinking of something. The Shantung Chinese word for "that" happens to resemble a certain offensive word that starts with an "N", has a short "i" after that, and then a couple of "g"s. With an "a" on the end.

    The Teacher in my post before me was from Ghana. He was apparently angry the entire time he was here.

    I can not imagine why.

    I've noticed that my Jiangsu pronounciation of "chicken"; "zhearo", is apparently totally incomprehensible to the locals, who say "jeero" instead. It's usually about this point that I give up and start doing guerrilla mischief like teaching the receptionist, who speaks no English, to shout "Blood for the Blood God!", or "All Hail Britannia!" at random intervals.

    And I don't even like warhammer, nor did I finish watching Code Geass.

    I'm such a poseur.

    Right. Well I'll just see which officially-sanctioned video site site supports a melodramatic anime about antiheroic, aristocratic Japanese fighting foreign imperialism shall I? Remember where I am. And remember what people here think of things Japanese.

    A couple of months ago was the aniversary of one of the Japanese invasions (the 1931 one). A lot of cars of japanese make could be seen with their insignia covered with a local flag. I was also warned not to got out at night because of course, being 191cm with wavy brown hair and blue eyes I look so totally japanese.

    On the lighter side, they are rather into Transformers car accessories. There's at least one guy driving around with a Decepticon logo and the words "To Punish And Enslave" on his doors.

    I'd think they like an anime where the Japanese no longer have their heritage or country, then. *shrug* but I can see why it might be hard to watch it, then.

    Macross? Seriously, the only people with an ethnic identity in that one are the Chinese.

    I should note that they DO watch anime...as an educational tool for children. Because of the Kanji in the subtitles. However, they never seem to rise above Naruto.

    EDIT: And in answer to the original question...I've thought it would be logical to make Orcish Russian, other goblinoid languages the other slavic tongues, and Dwarven German...but that gets heading toward unfortunate implications.

    I don't have a problem with sticking Japanese as the language of Devils because Devils are pretty badass. But Orcs etc are such common sword-fodder mooks it doesn't seem right to pin a real language on them.

    Anyway, the whole point of the joke is to have Drow speaking Spanish.

    There's another problem. Everyone knows dwarves always speak with a Scottish or Irish accent. Making them German just wouldn't sound right. Maybe giants instead should speak German? Or Austrian? Would be pretty funny if they sounded like Arnold.
    You could make dwarves speak celtic. Then the accent would make sense.

    Celtic isn't a language.

    Erse, Gaelic (I can't be bothered with what it's called at this precise moment. When I got my education Irish was called "Erse" and Scottish was called "Gaelic". But now they've changed their minds again and now it's "Scots Gaelic" and "Irish Gaelic". Either way, speaking as one whose decendants lie in County Clare, Connacht, I just wish they'd shut up and speak English like the rest of the planet) Welsh and Breton are Celtic languages. I will not mention Cornish as that's apparently only spoken by three people who only use it to hit on German tourists.

    Also, they've apparently now decided County Clare is in Munster, rather than Connacht. I hate it when my backstory is subject to revisionism. Not that it changes a single thing.

    Oh, and obscure trivia time! According to an ancient (1850s) geography textbook my mother found at a garage sale (the map of Germany has to be seen to be disbelieved) the islands of New Zealand were supposed to be named after Irish provinces. The North Island is New Ulster, the South Island is New Munster, and Stewart is New Leinster. Evidently, there's no place bad enough to wish "New Connacht" on. Although since NZ owns a slab of Antarctica we have a clear candidate.

    It would have been nice if somebody had told the actual colonists this, of course. It's a little embarrassing when the economic and political dynamic of you country is between two places called "The North Island" and "The South Island".

    It sounds like the world map in this game.

    * the land we come from is called "your people"
    * the next land is called "the empire"

    Nothing, I thought a few more people would like to post.

    The civs are named like this as a joke on the tendency of a lot of settings to have a place called The Empire. Not the Something Empire or the Empire of Something. Just The Empire. Not my best joke ever, but I'll run with it. Also reflects my snobbishness about meaningless fantasy names that everybody has to remember. That's why most of the NPCs have names that are semi-plausible. I think. "Quattro Vierzehn", the exception, is a silly joke.
