That was Matt Pearson-- they wouldn't meet his price, which we all agreed was reasonable and modest enough under the circumstances. There was quite an extensive thread on the topic 2? 3? 4? years ago, including lots of discussion of the language in Blade I, designed by linguist Victoria Fromkin of UCLA (IIRC), who died and apparently left no notes on it, hence the need for a new language in Blade II. Though I had the impression Matt wanted to expand on the Blade I language. Search the Listserv Archive for Matt Pearson, Blade, maybe Fromkin-- that ought to turn up something.
