Few things add more depth to a story than an artificial language, but languages take thousands of years to evolve. How do you go about making your own in less than a lifetime? And how do you make it believable?
In the first part of the episode, Mathieu Moyen of 6-Commando interviews Jim Francis, the creator of Outsider, about his process of creating two alien languages for his comic, and the thought that goes into creating a language spoken by creatures very different from us.
Then, Ewa of Bits Fair leads a roundtable discussion with G Pike (Title Unrelated) and Julia Francis (Chronicles of Oro) about the languages they created for their comics, the process of creating languages, and advice to aspiring conlangers.
