Yup, Pacific islanders. Hrmm...well, i'm not trying to rationalize the alphabet itself, just a transliteration scheme, since Rokbeigalmki already has it's own native alphabet. Would that make a historical difference or be accurate, that the Western Europeans wouldn't try to replace the alphabet with their own, while the Russians, possibly later, would? The Rokbeigalm's "Modern Period" is everything in Real Earth, as opposed to mythic pre-pre-historical Tolkien's Middle-Earth, which is when the stage of the language that i refer to as 'present' is. If you want to know exact time, it's whenever ElendorMUSH is at :) . Everything else about their history is very sketchy at the moment, except for the very beginning and that they're still around. -Stephen (Steg) "sadfal, sadtub."
