How do you handle swearing in your constructed (fantasy, sci-fi, etc) settings?
I’ve run into this more than a few times over the years. Sometimes, I find out something about the setting when I have the characters start swearing.
Gods below… swear men in Tír na Cali, which leads to the question… below what, and why are they below.
Eleven departed gods… people curse in Fae Apoc. Why are there 11? Where did they go?
I’m still trying to decide about curses in Reiassan… Girey blasts things a lot and, coming from a maritime culture, sometimes swears by whirlpools. Rin… doesn’t swear much.
How do you handle swearing? What’s your favorite and/or least favorite ways you’ve read other people handling it ?
