Howdy, rosellafan. Don't mistake me -- I'm not a Rosella, I just play one on TV--er, KQ9. Yeah. That's it. Anyhoo, I'm a big fan of hers as well, except when she's throwing her tantrums. I've gotten to know her better in the past week than I ever cared to!  ;) But yeah, we may be big fans, but judging by the looks of that ogre, he's a bigger one.  ;D

My sincerest apologies, oh Great One.

As for the words, you know bloody well that they gave me a good deal of trouble, because I had to consult you on how to pronounce them!  :P

No worries, though. Mostly Michael just had me say each one once, and we're just going to plug the same recording into a bunch of different places.

Besides, I don't see what's so hard to pronounce about Revlon Midnight Mauve.  ::)

Hmm sounds to me like hints of the magic system. Foreign words repeated over the course of the game sounds like casting spells.

I never said they were foreign. Big words, yes. And lines can be repeated over and over in various places. For instance, go back and play King's Quest 6 and check out how many times Alexander says "Zounds!" Could also be referring to names or inventory. And I don't know about you, but until the voice pack for KQ6 came out, I wasn't positive on how exactly one pronounced "vizier," or "Cassima," for that matter!!  ;-D

Actually, I was writing a story that was a period piece, so I was researching medieval curse words, and it seems that "Zounds" was mainly British and comes from "God's wounds," which basically refers to the wounds Jesus sustained on the cross and whatnot. Also where the term "bloody" comes from. There's your historical linguistics lesson for the day.  ;)

Yes, and some others are "Egad" and "Gadzooks". Egad probably is a "softened" oath for "my God", and Gadzooks is a corruption (like Zounds) of the phrase "by God's hooks". The word "hooks" would have meant "nails", hence it's a oath sworn by the nails that pierced Jesus on the cross.

 :o Whoa, and I always thought they were just a bunch of goofy words!  :suffer: Goes to show what I know! They're really quite morbid, eh? I still don't see how God's wounds = Zounds, though...  :-\ That's REALLY distorted... it's the (God')s (w)ounds? Hm, I see, but it's a bit of a jump...

English is so weird. :P It really is.

I actually found an old post today that Erik started back last March about Zounds.  Last page of "We're in Haven."  I've got no time atm to go find the link.  But it was an interesting post.

Found this interesting.  A few weeks ago, I was at work talking to the owner of the store.  I don't remember what we were talking about, but she did say "egads!"

Hehehe, maybe she should be hired for this project, eh?  :suffer:

My first introduction to 'Egads' was Mr. Lodge, Veronica's father in Archie Comics... in the old ones, that's what he used to say! XD

Just been reading some of the progress, looks good! (What...I am giving words of encouragement, I can't think of anything else to say!)
When cities burn and armies turn,
and flee in disarray,
Cowards will cry 'tis best to fly
and fight another day.
But warriors know it in their marrow when they die and fall,
It is better to have fought and lost than not have fought at all.
