Question Nadsat

Ok, I have recently finished reading A Clockwork Orange. For those of you who have read it: Should Derrick incorporate NADSAT into his speech, or leave it alone?

I was going to post that, but it was actually an option, so I voted for it instead.

Uhh... NADSAT?

<wikipedias it>

Hmm. Personally, I don't think it's quite relevant enough: one problem I have with "new stuff" is when only one character uses it. If NI is willing to incorporate it into the speech of some NPC's, it would sit much better with me.

The problem I see with it, from an asthetics view, is that jumping into a dailect for no apperant reason is a little... odd. From a game view, no one is going to know what the hell you're talking about. Even less then now. At least with Noir dialect, we can sort of divine the answer. I appreciate trying to incorperate things from great liturature, but not now.

Why bother? It wasn't even terribly noticable until you bumped it up to the top by posting in it.

I can lock it, which is what I plan on doing right about now.
