None of these people are bad voiceovers per se, but my are they in a lot of games with shitty acting, just check out their IMDb and/ or BehindTheVoiceActors pages. Apparently, all of them are based in Tokyo.

I'm not dead yet. I just took a break from linguistics and conlanging to do relax and do schoolwork. So, what's up?

Also, i think my linguistic specialty is with cants and pragmatics.

Note: Technically Uracas was made BEFORE Tartaji but due to unforeseen circumstances described above, i had to re-do the country. Also note Izambri is referring to a post i deleted.

Uracas Take 2:

  The Nomadic Peoples Of Uracas (TNPUS/ Tenpus) formely just Uracas are a group of wayward anoraks who happened to ground themselves in the biting winterland of Uracas, which was mostly inhabited by paramecia, and decided to form their own country. As the name suggests, most do not live in a single space for the entirety of the year in order to follow sunshine and wind patterns.

  Cars, boats, and planes are non-existant and everyone commutes by rail or by bike. Privacy is a limited concept thruout the land, with only washrooms and bedroom nooks being any semblance of secluded. Farms do exist, but the country mostly lives on a minimum-substinence diet and many products are imports or import developments. Artificiality is seen as predetermined and most see nothing odd about replacing limbs and nerves for the slightest of ailments. Urban planners, sightseers, and artists are the most prized professions.
