We have some new players on board who may not be familiar with colors we use for the different languages of Midnight. So here is a list which is rather similar to one we had on the old boards, (which was posted by Nif on another thread).

Not all the colors appear on the color choosing menu so you'll have to type in the colors yourself for now.

If anyone has a different idea for some of the languages... speak up.

Out of Character: gray

Orcish: red
Black Tongue: brown

Norther: olive
Erenlander: orange
Courtier: orchid
Colonial: hotpink

Trader's Tongue: yellow

Halfling: lightgreen
High Elven: lime
Jungle Mouth: green
Patrol Sign: rosybrown

Old Dwarven: steelblue
Clan Dialect: skyblue

Code:
Out of Character: [color=gray]gray[/color]

Orcish: [color=Red]red[/color]
Black Tongue: [color=Brown]brown[/color]

Norther: [color=olive]olive[/color]
Erenlander: [color=Orange]orange[/color]
Courtier: [color=orchid]orchid[/color]
Colonial: [color=hotpink]hotpink[/color]

Trader's Tongue: [color=Yellow]yellow[/color]

Halfling: [color=lightgreen]lightgreen[/color]
High Elven: [color=Lime]lime[/color]
Jungle Mouth: [color=green]green[/color]
Patrol Sign: [color=rosybrown]rosybrown[/color]

Old Dwarven: [color=steelblue]steelblue[/color]
Clan Dialect: [color=skyblue]skyblue[/color]

I have changed the drop down menu to use the colors we selected on the thread on meta dn the colors have their corresponding language after their name, to help you guys take them whenever you need to. Wink

I noticed Sylvan is missing from the list and 'darkkhaki' is an unassigned language.  I propose an addendum linking them...or is 'darkkhaki' just used for all unlisted languages?

Well, Sylvan, Infernal, Celestial, Draconic, while theoretically available on Midnight are rare enough to deserve special care when being used, I have spoken a bit on them when defining the scheme here.

I should probably just remove the color from the menu entirely...

I have a character who knows Sylvan, so I like having the option.  I think leaving it as a catchall is appropriate, assuming the [Sylvan] or [Infernal] tags are used by the posters...

That is probably the best bet, although I think the color might be too close to norther to make it trruly stand out.
