Pigfender, fellow NIADers: How harsh do you want to the language to get? On a scale from 1950s-era American TV: "You goll-dern, yella-bellied, no-good varmit!" to HBO's Deadwood: "I want that ****-sucker dead!"

Not that I was going to go full Deadwood, or anything, but guys may or may not be under stress in my chapter. :shock:

Up to you for your chapter. We've certainly had F-words before (I've certainly had characters use 'em in my chapters).

How do you pronounce "****"?
Hmmm... my interpretation of Asterix and Obelix has just altered considerably! :shock:

Ohhhh...good point. I need to throw some language in. Maybe that will give them more colour.

(on an aside...the only reason I remember what "expectorating" means is because of Disney. *cheer!*)
