    Fera of course have their own languages, but these aren't always pronounceable in Homid form, or learnable by their Kinfolk. More importantly, I couldn't pronounce them or write them with Latin letters.

    Also, why don't the various Fae have their own languages? What form does language even take in the ever-shifting Dreaming? It isn't necessarily anything like human languages, especially for beings essentially in perpetual Bedlam.

    I am extremely literal-minded and always write very literally. If I don't say something explicitly, please never assume I implied it. The only exception is if I try to joke.

      This is one of the things I complained about we need more fictional languages. I wasn’t sure how many I should have though, so I did introduce some for certain Banner Houses claiming origins outside Arcadia. Maybe we should have something like High Arcadian, Undertongue “made popular from the lost realm of Underbridge” Deepcant for the Thallain and Atlantean for the Mer. The Inanimae should have a Language for each element!


      It is a time for great deeds!

        Thats how I do it in my chronicles, yeah.

          1. Would someone please give a brief description (or links to such) of the Kiths that don't have functional (blue) links on this list: ?
          https://whitewolf.fandom.com/wiki/Kith_(WOD)

          2. Now that there're more in Africa than just the Eshu, what about the Oba? Are they still a subset of the Eshu 'Kith', or are they a separate 'Kith' analogous to the Sidhe?

          3. Do the vague groupings of 'Kiths' outside of Europe have collective names analogous to Kithain and Nunnehi? I can't consider Eshu a valid name for non-Eshu African 'Kiths', for example. For that matter, are there words for non-Kithain 'Kith'-equivalents?

          4. Mami Wata: Why aren't they Water Inanimae? And are there any specific names or regional variations for the different Phyla outside of Europe?

          5. Is there an African Kith of dreams of heat, desert mirages, and thirst, analogous to Redcaps? Should there be?

          Are Mami Wata a Kith now? If yes, which book are they in?

              I don't think I saw that Kith in there. I may have missed an update of the PDF file, I guess?
