Language Thread - MR 63 Special Ability - Distraction, activated on sixes. Anytime a six is rolled as part of the Language Thread's CPT the delvers must make a L2SR on Int or be distracted by shiny objects or small tree-dwelling rodents. Any delver failing their SR will have a zero CPT on the next round.
I'll have the deep-fried battered pixie with balrog dipping sauce and a Hobgoblin ale.

For those who may be interested, I was looking over the Ballad of Robin Hood on Gutenberg.org and the difference in language is really eye-opening:
The spelling of the old texts is retained with very few exceptions. The reason for this is that although the original texts were printed in the sixteenth century, the language is of the fifteenth, and a number of Middle English forms remain
I only bring it up here to show that language shifts over time and that as long as the reader can understand what is written the communication between author and audience has succeeded. I think we have a much easier time with the Trollszine considering that the spellings between UK English and US English are rather minor compared to the difference between Middle and Modern English.
