    https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/wcrpg/images/0/0c/Firekkans.png/revision/latest?cb=20111006173853 Wings might need to come up a bit. I hesitate to mention the length of the beak as well; yours looks fine as is IMHO and it could be that Firekkans have beaks of varying length depending on...

    [2020-02] Some novel character portraits

    You've got another difficulty - Gar's Emporium (the original one anyway) gets dumped into a black hole while our intrepid heroes are in the process of making their escape. Abram is likely dead by the post war period; I got the impression that he wasn't all that young in Action Stations. Tack on...

    Sorry, it's an expression; I meant that I agree wholeheartedly with your initial assessment.

    If it's at all like the original Gar's Emporium (the one in Action Stations, I mean), I imagine not...

    A basic demo video of the Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine.

    It's okay to pet Crown Prince Gilkarg, as long as you're okay with being invited for lunch. And by "invited for lunch", I of course mean that you personally are being served as the main course... 😈 😈 😈

    I'm going to go with "yes" in answer to the question; after writing that down yesterday I spent a fair amount of time considering and re-considering, and re-considering what I wrote down to make sure I was telling the truth, and after all that thought put in, I still think that's right. I think...

    I think this is close to being right. A journalistic report would contain nothing but facts - the reporter's opinion wouldn't (read: shouldn't) factor into the story at all. A documentary would contain facts as presented through the lens of whoever's producing it, so it may contain a greater...

    The third option is grammatically incorrect - but I assume that's the point. The second is correct (if a bit formal). As a multiple-choice Q/A, it's good.

    I recall a course with a title that was something of that nature while attending grad school - my M.A. is in Journalism. So it certainly sounds legit to me.

    yanaqdalhar = lit. "hair vomit". aqdalharyan = "to vomit hair" would have roughly the same meaning. ukarh = "ape". IIRC, the roots of the word are uk (food/prey) and ar (first/primary). The rest of it sounds fine to me (including the course introduction).

    Very awkward, I would imagine. At least, for those prudish Terrans anyway... 😈 😈 😈 Riga'hraijhaki h'innisjhamakschur takh jaqirini'irgaiulanna. I even had all the words for that one. More tame of a phrase to be sure. Could use both phrases, of course. The one about the ulanna trees come...

    Not to my knowledge. We don't see too many female Kilrathi in the entire series at all...I think Lady Hassa and Princess Zu'kara are all who we ever see, and neither was a lair-mate. I had hoped to explore the idea of mated Kilrathi with Elegy; might still get there some day. "Blessings", eh...

    [2020-02] Some novel character portraits

    Ah. Okay - then it should probably read as this: Ni'dalpa eshmang ja'l Terran'hra'chodyapa karhmakslanshikthrak. = lit. "I wonder sometimes how Terrans perceive the sky and ocean." Lunch now, editing this post with the requested line later... EDIT: Okay...wasn't sure which line to translate...

    Oops...I'd forgotten about the context of the scene. k'har = "payback (revenge)" is wrong in this case...it should be jaqdugath = "compensate / reimburse / lit. 'return payment' ". Thus the line should read Ri'hagathwinhal jaqdugathikvima'ga? Two translations, not sure which one fits better in...

    [2020-02] Some novel character portraits

    Alright. Ri'hagathwinhal k'harikvima'ga? (Sometimes I chuckle at the origins of some of my Kilrathi words. For example: k'har = "avenge / vengeance / revenge / lit. 'lack of shit'", as in "take no shit")
