Man, that Flaming Fist support cleric\mage chanting his "Alteration school" for "Haste" spell sure was scary to hear. :)

However, BG1's chanting sounds differed from the later projects

i think it only shared them with early ICWD 1.

"Spicati (crinis) magnis penetratio" :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil:

 

Or translated:

 

 

spiked (tentacles) forced penetration

Audible incantations are really welcome. I am thinking one set of incantations for when spells are fired off successfully, and another set of incantations for when spells are miscast.

 

 

 

I picture an interaction with an apprentice or Biff the Understudy:

 

Incertus, pulcher... uh, impediment? Fizzle...

 

Manus, potentis, pyro, *hand lights on fire* OWW!

As stated in the other thread, I really dislike this latin pronounciation, as well as the phrases used for incantations (thanks for spelling them out, Sensuki! :) ) I can't help but feel embarassed for the writers/speakers/characters hearing them.

 

So for me, it's a [x]NO

 

Yes to cool incantations, no to latin. Use the conlangs instead, for example :)

I would love to see this implemented for I have fond memories of learning new spells and getting to hear the different incantations in BG I and II. It also reminds me of the chanting used by the Third Race in the Gargoyles cartoon.

 

Yes to incantations, and yes to Latin!
