Talk about a circle (er, no pun intended).  So, let me get this 
straight.  One person whines, another person whines about that person 
whining, and so on and so on.  The one thing is, it was a stupid 
inquiry.  It's obvious that Jeremy can't control time, and he can't 
control what bugs and problems he'll run into or are reported late.  So, 
why bother asking?  The date reported probably won't be correct on the 
first time around.  I'm not going to "whine", I'm just going to ask 
everyone to stop spamming the list with moral and ethical, and unrelated 
issues to Circle.

Now on to the question I had.
Has anyone successfully implemented a full blown race tongues system?  
Something similar to what the spell parser did (that is, convert words 
and letters to other words and letters) except shows up unencrypted to 
all other races?  I've got quite a few races, but wanted to make like 3 
or 4 languages (elves/dwarves would share a language, except for grey 
elves (drows) which would share a language with grey dwarves, orcs, 
ogres, kobolds, and trolls, etc).  And before I went delving into it, I 
wanted to see how many others on this list had done such a thing, if they 
ran into any problems (not in coding, but as far as after-implemention of 
it, did the players like it?).

I don't want to spend too much time implementing something that the 
players will despise.
