character "hailing satan" and "floating"

In San d'Oria, is this sort of thing allowed? I don't think it is...

Should that be worse than the ones talking about some kind of God, whatever that is? Both are as unlikely.

He's not talking about "some kind of devil" but a specific one from real life. It's the equivalent of talking about Jesus. No doubt PD will clarify, so please wait patiently for them to see this post.

Edit; Wiro pretty much said exactly what I just did. Oops.

But, yeah- 'God' is a generic term, pertaining to any kind of deity. 'Satan', on the other hand, pertains to the Abrahamic figure. So, yeah- Cantrians may have a reasonable concept of a god, but 'hailing satan' is a whole different kettle of fish.

I'm having a hard time picturing someone pronouncing upside down letters xD
Don't remember where I was - I realized life was a game - The more seriously I took things - The harder the rules became

My previous post didn't mention it, but obviously floating is against the rules. It's debatable whether Satan/Jesus are (probably not), and whether upside down letters are allowed. Hopefully PD will clear that up for us.

Floating is against the rules.
Bringing real world content (is. real world religions) into the game for use as RP is against the rules.
Upside down letters is something I will let others weigh in on as I don't recall there being anything specifically preventing their use (as they can technically be used to create a new 'Cantr language').
