    Honestly, most of the words were very obvious from context, i.e someone reffering to someone they have expressed obvious disdain for as something means that is is probably some sort of casual insult.

    ... and when Selkirk tells the Colonists about the Father of Tides and teaches them how to talk to the Warpers...

    Excuse me...

    ***FANGIRL SQUEAL!***

    I love this story so much!

    So Warper language is almost like an interpretive dance... fascinating. They also have names for creatures, like the sea emperor being The Father of Tides. Would you mind if I could have a list of creature/object/plant names in warper language?

    Hmm. This sounds like it might need to be a separate side-project, rather than something I can incorporate into the story.

    I'll see what I can do. Bear in mind, Selkirk has pointed out that the Warper vocabulary is unusually limited.
    Their language relies more on emotions, gestures and the tonal patterns on Warper mantles than actual words.

    it would make sense that they still have names for different creatures like naming the reaper "roaring menace" or something like that.

    Okay.

    One custom-designed alien language is considered an 'extra'. It's gonna cost ya.

    Well good to know that the reapers are back, always there to play with Selkirk.
    Also jumping the gun a little but, will we get an explanation as to why the Reapers are learning new tactics for hunting?

    Huh, I guessed the Reaper Leviathans were a long-lived species but it's still nice to see that the ones we've seen before are still around. I wonder how many children Ahab and Carrie had together.

    I think it's just because the reapers are intelligent enough to know that their old tactics against Selkirk we're not working so they decided to try something else. Ahab and Carrie are still really pissed about Selkirk interrupting their intimacy earlier I guess.

    I wonder why they're suddenly attacking? Selkirk said at the end of the last story that he had been given the closest thing to diplomatic immunity by the Sea Emperor and that the Reapers let him pass unharmed through their territories.

    Yeah that makes sense.
    This would be terrifying if this happened in game, i would never go the the island again.
