With the swearing thing, would people count bloody, b**ch and crap as swear words?

I say the puzzles,riddles,quests should be HALF easy+half difficult/Half of the puzzles,riddles, quests easy,the other half difficult.
The amount of badness&goodness should be equal.
More stories&screenshots,please!
Also include some JOKES.

Seriously, for dialogue in all situations to flow smoothly, some swearing should be expected. Obviously the more modern types of swearing would fall out of place in a medieval RPG.

Yes, that's my opinion too. (Even though I answered 4...) Functional swearing is okay with me...

What would medieval swearing be exactly?

I don't think it has to be medieval swearing, but the more classic swearing. I'll try this example, but it's possible any kind of swearing filter will screw that up

A character in a medieval game could, imo, perfectly say: "God dammit, things have gone to hell!".
But not: "For f uck's sake, I'm royally screwed!" (forgive me for bypassing the filter here)

Note that both include swearing, but the type is different. "Dammit" is more acceptable than "f uck" in my mind, simply because it focuses more on the thought behind it than on the actual swearing itself.

This example also illustrates the difference between "old" and "modern" swearing. One might say the first example uses a more general style of swearing, whereas the second example is related more to a specific group of society (internet slang, younger people). I've never heard a 50 year old man say "For f uck's sake", but I've heard them say "Dammit". And I've heard young people say both, which proves that the first example is much more universal. You never know who will play your game, but by using only the universally used swear words there's not much you can do wrong (unless you're one of those people who just can't stand the use of any swearing, at all).

"Duck" has been around for a very long time. And yes, I have heard quite a few older people use it in that context.

Just look at other RPGs. How often have you seen "duck" in one? I've seen dang, dammit, etc.. lots of times though. It may not seem like much of a difference to you, but the strength of the words differ greatly IMO.

They are more likely to say 'curse you!' and spit than say duck.

I never said there wasn't a difference in perceived strength of words or that it wouldn't really fit in most d-mods. I was just pointing out that the example and the reasoning you used were faulty.

Also, "duck" *may* have been said in Fallout 2, an RPG (but I think they censored it)... I honestly can't remember. However, that's a totally different setting where its use would not be out of place.

Personally, I think it would be more fun to use the Shakespearean Insult Generator, thou fobbing full-gorged pignut.

Medievil Swearing? I have been using some. Words like Zounds! And exclaimations like Great Zeus!

But Striker is on to something. I can well imagine the astonished looks on the faces of local street urchins if I were to lay onto them with Shakespearian verbosity.

Why bypass the swear filter, Dink Network Staff Member Alumni? If you say 'Duck', people know what you mean. Well, most people.

Yes, but, For Duck's Sake? That would just detract from the message I was trying to convey
Note that I did not try to circumvent the filter when it came to "dang"
