We always hear Bardin speak about Raki and Dumi and Kerillian speaking in her indecipherable excuse for a language about glaikit mayflies and Rhana Dhandras and what not, but you never hear Kruber and Saltzpyre speak in the glorious tongue of Sigmar himself.
Fatshark, what the F.
This makes me sehr böse to be honest. We cannot just let this stand.
We cannot have proud sons of the Empire be disrespected like this. They cannot be reduced to having to speak another language than that of the Lord Sigmar himself. We need Dan Mersh and Tim Bentinck screaming incoherently at the top of their lungs.
…that makes me think, actually.
Are everyone already speaking Reikspiel with eachother?
I mean, we, the players, hear it as English, but we already know that English doesn’t exist in Warhammer, considering that, you know, England doesn’t exist either (wow, just like in real life).
So, they must already be speaking Reikspiel with each other, right?
I mean, the chances of the Imperials knowing how to speak Khazalid (perhaps with the exception of Saltzpyre) or Eltharin are pretty slim, so they have to be speaking something else, correct?
And considering 3/5ths of the Stud Squad are Imperials (Sienna is Estalian by birth, but I’m pretty sure she had to learn Reikspiel to study at the Colleges of Magic), and that 1/5th of them is a Dwarf, someone with close ties to the Empire and someone who most likely knows how to speak the language, Reikspiel is the most likely candidate, I think.
(That or Battle Tongue I guess, but I don’t know if Battle Tongue is still canon.)
Though, that kinda raises the question as to how Kerillian learned how to speak Reikspiel if she was secluded in a forest for most of her life. Perhaps she spied on human trespassers in the forest long enough for her to learn the language? Impossible to know with the Elves…
Oh well. Guess we might never know. Have a not terrible Taalstag mein Kameraden. Deus Sigmar.
