Because of my decision to change the setting of my game project to the entire planet instead of just the Western Hemisphere. Plus the Techia conculture was originally based on the Gypsies (or what they might be like if they really came from Egypt as the popular name implies), and Tech was originally going to be based on Semitic and Indo-European (this was before I discovered Nostratic). Does anybody have the list of roots according to Allan Bomhard's reconstruction, by the way? The dictionary costs nearly $200 US on, but I'll prolly get it eventually.

And I'll keep y'all posted if I ever fix the homepage -- I can't access it for some reason. Got a new computer today and need to set it up the way I had the old one. ~d~ ===== __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Yahoo! Auctions - buy the things you want at great prices
