Myth Concept 2 – Althrian alphabet
I introduce you to the Althrian Alphabet!
This really isn’t used much in the first book… but the subsequent seven have symbols and words that need to be discussed. People learn the languages and little snippets should be added for realism. Surprisingly, this is not the only language I have to make for this series…
To be fair, there are TWO althrian alphabets… this is their modern language, the other is their ancient pictographs. The ancient alphabet comes into play pretty quickly, but it’s never really explained in detail.
Etymology, punctuation and grammar are going to come later… but I have to crawl before I can walk, then walk before I can run, I guess… It’s just so damn hard to try not to blast off into space before building the rocket ship.
