Just wondering the other day about the use of 'swear words' in 40k i was particularly interested in how SM's go about cursing when an incoming shell is heard etc, you know?
Ive read a few of the Ciaphas Cain books and noticed that 'Frak' is often used for... well i think we know but what else? 0:
Apologies if this isnt a thread that we should go into, but i thought if its in a Book/Codex that children read... then it should be ok for use on web :party2:

Frak in 40k? Oh that is made of awesome and win.
40k+(new) BSG= epic.
In the gaunt's ghost novels they say things like feth. I think people have always cursed and will continue to curse even in the future!

I've read "frag" as being used similarly.
"If you can wait til I get home, then I swear we can make this last."
The Horus Heresy books use "fug" frequently, especially the most recent one (Legion. I've got it. Yay!) Warpspawn is a common epithet as well, and people use "grox" in the same way that we today would talk about a horse or other domesticated farm animal (as in "grox-herder" or "enough chems to tranquilise a grox" or other, less appropriate examples implying things about one's intimate preferences.)
"It takes a vast amount of self control to be this dangerous."

Just have them use ork words, I mean they could say "pie" in Orkish, and not only would it SOUND insulting, it probably WOULD be :rofl
