- I don't know, it's just a joke :-) (and i don't even remember if i'm telling it correctly)... i'm pretty sure it used to, but i think the proportions have shifted by now. If someone really wanted to find out i'm sure it'd be easy to look up population statistics on the web.

- Ah, but then that would have to be |sudrokbeigalm|, using the simple adjective prefix |sud| instead of the 'innate quality' adjective suffix |ki|! :-) Writing _Rokbeigalmkidh minds_ sounds more like another group among _Rokbeigalmkidh humans_ and _Rokbeigalmkidh elves_... :-b Actually, to be technical, the agentive |dh| suffix only attaches to an active 'citizenship' identity. So for instance, my prototypical Rokbeigalmkidh, Stíígiyus, is actually a |biyaurnKIDH rokbeigalmKI| because he's Rokbeigalmki ethnically but now he lives in the Beorning Lands (on ElendorMUSH). Similarly, my first Elendor character, Elnar (Rokbeigalmki name: Urgámn), was an |imlaindrihskidh rokbeigalmki| because he lived in Imladris. -Stephen (Steg) from : steg is a fine game steg is a steganography program steg is unsurprisingly a big star trek fan steg is being used steg is made of velvety smooth tylon steg is a form of sto so must not be used on its own steg is the most amazing robot that has ever been in robot wars steg is beer steg is from rome and has a brand new baby boy steg is in charge steg is steg is as easy as they come steg is my friend he is a baby brontosaurus he gives me a ride on his flipside steg is another issue entirely steg is fucking atrocious steg is a world famous cellist steg is a dinosaur running till his feet are sore
