    Sup all.

    I'm wondering if its possible for us to setup a means of saying "I have a group project, will someone collaborate with me?" and what the format of such a post is or where on earth it would actually go.

    I say this because I've begun the task of writing a Lorath language and would like some help in making it work.

    Its mostly concerned with by-case stuff rather than specific works or popular sentences for the most part - so we have an idea of what Lorath would sound like.

    In the future, I'd like to do similar projects for other species, putting my language degree to work - for example, what trade actually consists of or how Yamataian differs from flat out Japanese.

    Anyway, thanks for your time.

    As always, stay frosty.

    The place to work on things for RP would be the Roleplaying and Setting Discussion forum. I made a large number of spelling corrections to your article.

    Hey @OsakanOne, I was wondering if you were making any progress on making a language for the Lorath.

    I will give you the short answer.

    No. On account of many, many factors.

    Life happened many times over. People have died. Have almost been homeless. Lots of hospital time. Busted computers. Poverty. Help from friends has basically kept me alive and sane.

    Group projects are pretty tricky on SARP. I have seen tensions get pretty high when two people have different opinions on the path their creation should take. Sometimes having two brains working at a problem means that you'll catch mistakes that one person would miss.

    The optimal thing would be to have one impartial person as a mediator for instances where there's a disagreement about the final product. @Zekec and I are working on reviving the Llranni, but we're each working on different aspects of the species. So far that has been effective at preventing any arguments.

    @Wes If someone is looking for assistance with a project where on the forums should we ask for it? Setting discussion?
