[Suggestion (Request?)] Add correct voice lines to Goths, Italians, Byzantines and Aztec

Aztec should speak Nahuatl, Goth Gothic, Byzantines Greek and Italians preferably an ancient version of Italian instead of Latin.

Suggested voice lines:
Goth/Huns: https://ageofempires.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Eljuma/Gothic_lines_for_Goths_and_Huns
Italians: https://ageofempires.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Eljuma/Italian_lines_for_Italians
Aztec: https://ageofempires.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Eljuma/Nahuatl_lines_for_Aztecs
Byzantines: https://ageofempires.fandom.com/wiki/User_blog:Eljuma/Greek_lines_for_Byzantines


i like the idea

but i think byzantine should speak a mixture of latin and greek since they were probably well educated about languanges around them

So like the Celts with some lines in Latin?

How are they supposed to be in Gothic if there is no record of how it was pronounced?

Yeah totally. For that matter Huns should also get a unique voice pack (they are the same as the Mongols I think?)

The OP proposed to give the same language for Goths and Huns since said Huns used the Gothic language as their linga franca, since they had to make it so that all the tribes they had under their command could communicate somehow.


We also do not know what language the Huns spoke amongst themselves, because the Huns never left anything written down about them, and would actively seek to burn anything anyone else would have wrote; since being obscure and mystical was part of their terror tactics.

We literally know almost nothing about the Huns, which is why they do not actually fit the description of a “civilization”.

They did not build or write anything, did not spread their religion or language, and basically disappeared as soon as Atilla died.

There is no way to get an accurate voice pack for Huns that would actually be hunnic.

Through comparative pronunciation reconstruction. Like how they did it with the Teuton lines and Frank ones.

There’s even a YouTube video with a sample of how Gothic probably sounded:


The part with the Gospel of Mark is really beautiful, specially because the Goths were majority Christian by the time Alaric destroyed Rome, and these things were actually read out loud in halls and town squares, in Visigothic lands, because the Arian doctrine insisted that everyone had to know Scripture, even if they could not read.


I know I’m necroing this thread but I’ve just played Goths again and thought how nice would it be if they had their own lines.

It wouldn’t even mean that much work to include the proper ones.

No one is able to reconstruct the Hun language. Not enough of it remains to be known.

can use romaneian (thracians)

Apparently they used Gothic as their lingua francia. But throw in some mongolian shite and some Roman slang and it would seem real enough.

Romanian is a romance language.

Thracian is little known but is theorised to be have been a Indo-European language closer to Greek and Albanian.

Neither have anything to do with Gothic.

I don’t think they will ever change Aztec voicelines, they remade Haudenosaunee and Lakota voicelines for AoE3 to become more accurate but left the Aztec voicelines (that are just as innacurate as the AoE2 ones) as is.

What are we waiting for? the voice lines are there. Right there.
