New rule for SF/F stories: I’m not learning more than one made up word per chapter. If you need to substitute every other word just to sound exotic (“She drank the alear’nyo’gulrag, a nourishing Drink of fermented hops and barley”) I’m out.


@breakthesystem also: made up words are not to resemble each other, and if the chapters are shorter the number of made up words per chapter should go down accordingly. Bonus points if made up words sound like something that could be remembered easier than the example you just gave
