    This may be a stupid question... But what language is Karamhul based off of?

    For instance, how would one say "Flametongue" in Karamhul?

    Karamhul seems to be almost a copy of Tolkien's Dwarvish (compare Khazad-Dum and Kheled-Zaram with Baruk-Azhik, Kheleb-Izhil, etc). I have no idea about translations though.

    Dragon mag, about 2 years ago, had a series of articles with some demihuman
    languages and examples. I`ll check for flametongue.

    Try mixing Nordic and Slavic languages. For example, DMs of Warlords of
    Winter decided to translate Shield of Hope as Krushkhal. Of course, they
    had no idea that "krushka" means pear in Serbian :-)

    Errr, maybe I mispelled it, but it should be a fruit with
    greenish-yellow skin and meat similar to apple. Actually, I considered
    it opposite of apple when I was kid :-)

    Talking of pears saddens me, for I have just finished my last bottle of double brewed pear mead and have to wait till next year to have more:-(
    Cattle die and kinsmen die,
    thyself too soon must die,
    but one thing never, I ween, will die, --
    fair fame of one who has earned.
