Carlos speaking. Let's
tech-talk here, shall we?
I've been toying with the
idea of a Siberian-Turkic-Mongolic analogue nation in the former Red Sky
Lakes at least since April 2005. As soon as I had most of the stuff done
(inside my head, at least...), I contacted Mike Ham, who gave me green
light to this project. And so was born the Abaki Soviet!
The Abakians are Vex's
equivalent to the Mongolic and Turkic peoples of Siberia and Central
Asia - Mongols, Uzbeks, Kazakhs and Nenets, mainly. Their language
is Ulanovan - that is, Russian - although you may expect an Abaki
language to appear sometime. Or not. =)
Talking on languages...
There's some Russian text on these pages, haven't you noticed? Yes, that's
real Russian. I thank my (very) limited knowledge of the language for
As for the Soviet... No,
the Abaki government is not a bunch of
red-evil-god-hating-baby-eating-pro-Gronkian commies. I've simply taken
the word "soviet" back to its basic meaning in Russian: "council".
Since there was never a Soviet Union in Vexillium, the word retained its
original meaning on this world, instead of being forever linked with
Communism. Yes, I intended to create some confusion with this. And it sounds great
or what? I mean, just listen to it, "Abaki Soviet". The strong
syllabe is the "ba" in "Abaki". =)
Guess that's it for now...
- Carlos the
- Or Carlos the Abaki.
- Or Carlos Augusto.
- Or Carlos Straczynski.
- Or The Brazilian Guy.
- Or just Carlos. Whatever. =)
