New rule for SF/F stories: I’m not learning more than one made up word per chapter. If you need to substitute every other word just to sound exotic (“She drank the alear’nyo’gulrag, a nourishing Drink of fermented hops and barley”) I’m out.


@breakthesystem Agreed! Call it beer, make it exotic by creatively describing its exotic nature - English is already capable of that, no need to make us learn and read some made-up foreign language for it!
