Pictograms Used
and what we think they stand for

Image <- UV Weapon, Ultraviolet, The Sun, Sunlight.

Image <- Daytime? At the end of the day? Sunset? The Sun over a body of water? Moon over body of water? UNKNOWN

Image <- Claws? Rollerblades? Attack? Kill? UNKNOWN


Image <- A boat? Something Ominous? Fog-tentacles? UNKNOWN

Image <- Outside? Leave? UNKNOWN

Evan Dahm's forum has a complete linguistic assessment of his universe's languages. I expect no less of us.


:cry: Oh no, don't show me that! Now I'll never get any work done until I can translate them.
I guess I'll have to keep a running tally of all the symbols used....

I went ahead and split this into a new topic. I think it deserves that.

Considering the fact that the world is highly flooded, this could be a representation for daytime.

Translation:
Freak 1: "Circle with dots and a squiggle."
"Circle above squiggles, line with dots, line with dots."
Freak 2: "Spiral line with dots, five dashes, circle."

I thought this looked like some sort of embryo or a developing fetus.

The 4th one looked like a wave to me.

The 2nd and 4th both have the open circle and small black dot, so they're probably connected.

Looks more like a tendril of fog going for the sun. Also consider that the O* symbol is present in two aggregate symbols and that these creatures (they certainly aren't human whatwith their four fingers and oddly shaped feet) seem to have an aversion to sunlight, given that they're bandaged from head to claw.

I think the two related symbols deal with either the tides, or the condition of the water (choppy, rough, etc...) if anything.

the amoeba eating the chair might have something to say about the overcast?
edit: or the fog. since it obscures everything.

Pictograms finally used in comic.
The ball and ray thing is apparently akin to "uv weapon"

Yea, I think it means sun or Ultraviolet.
Don't really have the time to update the list right now, I'll do it when I get home tonight.

Hmm, it seems that Image means UV + something. Time for some hardcore hypothesising ;)


Image = Let us leave the UV light (hence the extra squiggle)

Image = At the end of the day

Image = We'll claw things to DEATH!

Image = The night-tentacles will emerge? We will all bow down in a row to the squid of the night? Something ominous, anyway.

(I've made the assumption that the circle-dot which appears twice is a sundown or moonrise.

Hey, if it's a moon, maybe there's been an extra moon or something insane like that, might account for the flooding! Ok, enough stupid conjecture!)

I've Updated the first post,
As long as you don't mind, I'll also be keeping other bits of language speculation in the first post, as a form of housekeeping, and for having everything in one place.

What about the new symbols that show up? Are you gonna add those too?

In short Yes, I was in the middle of adding the newest one when you posted.
I'll do my best not to get to far behind.

Still missing "UV Weapon". It's slightly different from the first one.
