The purpose of this thread is to gather any questions you might have for RAWA on the occasion of his appearance in the upcoming CavCon event.

As he is recovering from a very serious operation, his wife will be acting as amanuensis, so we thought that getting the questions to them in advance would let him compose answers offline, with less stress.

That will leave more time for simple spontaneous chat when he is with us, bearing in mind still that we should respect his temporary fragility.

Just to kick this off & going... as I'd think RAWA is the main linguist regarding the D'ni Language
a question about the origins of the D'ni language. [OOC or IC, I'm not sure here which is the most
valid one. but working as a translator myself, I find languages fascinating!]

J.R.R. Tolkien, who constructed several fictional languages and vocabularies, got his inspiration
from several sources. He knew, IIRC, old English, Celtic, all the usual European languages, learned
several Scandinavian languages etc. that helped him construct them all...

So in short, what was the inspiration or the basis for the D'ni language? Can you tell a bit about
the origins of it? I suppose it's very Non-English, but does it for instance have any Arabic, Hindi,
Japanese or some Asian influences? Or any correlation to other common languages and speech
patterns?

1.Could you give us a little more background on the bahro (something we dont know about them) and where the bahro concept came from?

2.Why Myst island closed off to the public did you plan to have Myst island release to the public at some point?

3.Where are the dni bathrooms? Did they have ages that they went to for the bathroom?

4.Are there any more animations than what we have that would have been added to the game, example clap, dance, bow ect.? Why are there no hand animations where you can pick up stuff and carry with you? Why was the jump feature so important in this game?

Q: we know from a recent interview with David Wingrove that a draft of the Book of Marrim exists. But we also know it's been on the back burner for years. You've told us not to give up on it. Is there anything you can tell us about what would need to happen to that draft in order to ready it for publication?

Do you think that there will soon be a major update to the game?

I wish you a speedy recovery.

Under the heading of full disclosure, Maggie, Alan, and I can't meet until Wednesday (tomorrow) at 1300KI time. So we will just leave this open until then. We should be able to get the questions all sorted out and sent to RAWA and Angela within that hour, I'll send them right around 1400KI time. thank you for your interest!

I greatly enjoyed the YouTube video of you singing, RAWA, so my question is: Is there any chance you could be convinced to submit a song or two to be played during the weekly Uru Karaoke event?

I feel sheepish for asking:
What sorts of symptoms were you having before being diagnosed? What signs hinted that you were sick? I think I read a comment somewhere about your behavior being different. I don't mean to embarass you, but I'm curious about how the brain creates personality. At what point does "you" go from "having an off day" to "not you anymore"? And can "you" be aware of it, or does someone else need to tell you? (Yeah, probably better asked/answered over on your Caring Bridge blog, not in Cavern. I'd love to read your thoughts, both of you, from different perspectives.)

Can we call the content that is currently being created by the Intangibles "canon?" So, in other words, will their version of Kahlo be the "real" Kahlo, etc.?

I know it’s too late, but just in case: what’s the actual pronunciation of “Ae’gura”, “A’Gaeris” and “Ro’eh Ro’dan”?
