"Feffin'!" (used as an adjective inserted within a sentence for emphasis, thus:  "Who woke the feffin' dragon up, eh?"  Meaning is debated, but most linguistic scholars in Sorren agree that it originated with human sailors and spread rapidly around the known world...)

"Co'or-ridden" (also an emphatic adjective, meaning 'haunted', or 'dammed'.  Eg:  "That Co'or-ridden baron wants ta double our taxes - does'e think we're made o' feffin' gold?"

"Herkpt'in' " (emphatic verb, colloquial.  "Herkpting" is the action of snorting up phegm and spitting it out.  The verb is properly pronounced in three syllables with the stress on the first and third, thus: HERK-pih-Ting.   "The old man was busy herkpting into the spittoon, and didn't see the soldiers striding towards him."  However, it has been co-opted as a vulgarism, and as such is pronounced HERK-pit-ten.  "You herkptin' piece of gnoll snot, whateryer think yer doing?"

"Kack!"  Broadly translated, means, 'excrement'.  Pronounced with two hard 'k' sounds.  Commonly used when one hits one's thumb with one's battlehammer, or when trying to repair household water pipes.  Can also be conjugated very effectively, as in "Kacking hammer hit me on the kacky thumb!" or "This kacked-up pipe's got no kackin' water in it!" or even "You kack-faced Drell cubs got no backbone ta be soldiers in THIS army!"

that was the most impressive piece of unpronunceable nonsense swearing that I have yet to witness.

Ksumarii Sayings

"Even Orcs have a use"- Nothing is a complete loss.
"Sunspawn!"- Something along the lines of "Son of a -GUN-!"
"Moonlight becomes you, (blank)"- Not-too-subtle death threat, as Kasumarii funeral rites involve placing the body in full view of the moon.
"The night is your guard, but your shadow my life"- Kasumarii equivalent of a proposal. Rumored to be the first line in a poem by Kasumar to Tyrajall.
Few more as I think of 'em...

Xarl Bluestride, Archmage of the White Arcana, Master of the Magic Forum, and generally cool guy. All requests are to be written on the back of a ten-dollar bill (or equivelant thereof) placed on a dead ferret, and tossed in the sewer system.

(snickering) Great death threat....how creative!

And that has to be one of the more romantic and yet understated proposals on record.

Love these, guys....keep 'em coming!

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
