Dialect is a game that explores how an isolated group develops their own language and how both the group and the language then fade away either by assimilation or extinction.

We have completed play for our Khaotic game! Including sessions 9 and 10, continuing from the material presented at What could go wrong? and Psychic social science fiction hits the "drama" button.
We continue with Khaotic, in our Spelens Hus group! With special attention to the remarkable internalization each player has undergone regarding their characters, as I've received plenty of contributions from all of them regarding backstories, plans, details, and relationships.
It's 2030, as conceived in 1994, and things like this thing are attacking Earth out of nowhere. No fear: the International Society of Enlightened Scientists has swung into action, using secret weird tech from the 1940s under no quality-control supervision at all! You play their agents on missions via the TransEgo Device as well as coping with myriad hassles back at home and HQ.
Here's our play experience with Ola's Compact Stories, which is well-timed considering our recently-concluded season of Primetime Adventures. It's a chance to perceive precisely what distinguishes his design, and for him to see what to dial down or to dial up inside it.
It's a good thing I reviewed my drives, because I found this game session played in March. I think it was the last time I went to Spelens Hus physically before shifting to screen play.
Here's our first gathering to prepare for Primetime Adventures, a game whose title will invoke more blithering, partisanship, and sprayed terminology than any other I can think of. Which is too bad because the actual game is quite wonderful.
We've packed in three more sessions! So, 17 total. The linked video goes to #15 inside the playlist, and I'll add the next as I finish editing them.
What you're seeing in these is the considerable expansion of the setting to include the northern subcontinent. We finally bring up ethnic visual topics in the 17th session, so if you're wondering about that in the first session you see here, rest assured it does not get ignored.
For anyone who's wondered what happened to the Spelens Hus RuneQuest game, I'm here at last to tell you that we have played our fourteenth session, which means five more for you to see. We shifted to screen play for safety purposes, and the editing is pretty hard core, so I'll be adding episodes to the playlist and commenting here for a while to notify you.
