I read a great tip in a book called "The First Five Pages" by Noah Lukeman. It says to use inflection very sparingly, but to convey dialect through word choice instead. I'll see if I can dig up the specific example.

I have found out that there is people who do not understand what is "royal we". Thinking it is sign of the broken English in the project.

So don't worry about it, really.
NO!
That would be great, Trav. I'll probably pick the book up myself as well actually.

I use a small amount of regional dialect in my project, it's normally just shortening words, or using common sayings. It can add flavour to your world, but use it sparingly; you need the player to actually understand your characters.


The majestic plural, or "royal we", is used by people of high office as a method to express their authority and power.

I've started up Pillars of Eternity. It's interesting how the game does a "select choice" cutscene using still image art for dramatic flair. I wonder if that might work for my RPGMaker project.

Gamedev for relaxing? yes or no?
