Cheat Sheet for Santharian Styles

Just to help you identify design elements at first glance.  Feel free to add your own ideas here as well as in the original thread!  XXOO


Marresque –  Gothic, Romanesque

Serphian –  Aboriginal / Op Art

Goutonchic – Victorian

Roulkish – slums, run-down.  Not actually a ‘style’.

Avennorian – Nautical

Mynian – Flemish, Scandinavian

Ritonic – your classic Celtic – very popular with our artists, apparently!

Zhunith-made –   Tibetan / Abstract

Trubish -    Quasi-Egyptian, Phoenician, Assyrian

Injeran – Art Deco

“Quael-cut”  -   Grecian / Inca

Kurakian – Neo-Roccoco, ‘Hammer Baroque’

Dior – neo-goth, modern fashion!

Zephyrene – Gaultier, I guess or de la Renta – it should be opulent and layered.

Barbaric –  Tribal / Central South American

Burrowmier – oh, come on, didn’t anyone get THAT easter egg?  I’m not going to spoil the fun yet, then….

Erphish –  Renaissance, all the way

Caltherite – Seventies

Hemlic – Aubrey Beardsley on steroids, as far as I can tell



Other concepts:

Eylian – heavily Native American, but which particular area?  West Coast are very different from Plains, for example…

NeoSanthalan – fairly Elizabethan, with the ruffs, tights,  laces, symmetrical brocades, and so on. 

Orcen –

Gnomese –

Murmillionaire -   “Dark with light accents and embroidery”  - um, Chiascuro, perhaps?  Rembrantian?

Religeuse – characterized by long, flowing lines, purity of style, simplicity and modesty.  In clothing, a full robe, sometimes belted simply, often with an attached hood or cowl.  In buildings, as little of the actual construction visible is desirable – limed, plastered, or adobe surfaces are common to produce a clean, simple effect.

That's cool!

I have not yet found your Easter egg, but I'n not so versified with styles as you seems to be.

The only style which I'm not yet comfortable with is religeuse

Clothes' style would hint, that most clerics, priests etc do have that simple style - do we want this? No fine clothes for at least the higher ranks like we have them in the roman churches? Maybe better link it to an order like the Dalireen , don't recall right know, what other orders wear.

Building style: Why should the structure be covered? In gothic cathedrals you see the structure quite clearly. I mean, if we define the style this way, then this implies somehow, that most of the  Santharian temple building have to follow that rule, for otherwise it would not be called this way.

I might have an additional style. I'm  stuck with the Priests of Queprur, for I have difficulties to describe the clothing, maybe you cold help me.

The priests of Queprur wear no color (only in the face), just black and some white for younger ones or apprentices, maybe I'll add a grey. There should be a lot of fabric needed, flowing dresses, down to the ground, a second wide, capelike cover which is long enough to just cover the hands. But all this should not look bulky, but flowing. Then imagine the always white hairs and skin of the priests, and you have your appearance. No embroidery, just the high priestess will have some. Very plain, but expensive fabrics (not always though, the higher ranks), a good cut. Could that be Quepruresque?

Maybe other goddesses could stand for other styles as well (Dalireen e.g. ), though we do not have to pin down that now, it can wait, till the priests are developed and added.

Hmmm....Though I had assumed this was for Santharian Styles- Nybelmarian ones keep cropping so- So Why not include the Ancient Krean fashion concept of dressing to create the illusion of your outfit being a plant (mainly by using Organic materials in their designs)?

Actually, it wasn't so much the material as the overall design :P So an elaborate skirt may for example resemble an up-side-down rose etc

Great list Judith!

Why are my half-orcs being left out?  angry Or is this another "humorous" thread list?

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

(grins)  No, Az, don't worry, it's not that you are missing the joke OR being left out.   Not every clan and tribe of Santharia has a unique design style that can be identified across the continent.   

This is more an attempt to give us some 'santharized' adjectives for style genres and historical periods which were dramatic enough to give rise to their own characteristic stylings, across art, architecture, fashion, and household design.

Just as we might say 'That's a Victorian house', Santharians can now say, 'That's such a Goutonchic building!' and we'll all know what we mean.    Instead of referring to a 'Gothic arch' we can talk about a "Marmarresque arch" - I hope it can become part of our design vocabulary just as naturally as we use peds, sans, and norsidian... :)

For the Eyelians, I see the different tribes as having different styles. Forgive me, I meant clans.
The wolf clan- Something original, as they use more stone then any native tribe before them. Probably a west coast style.
Eagle clan- A east coast appearance
Bear clan- Pueblo

Right, thanks, Nsiki!  That may be more useful for you than anyone else, but it will enrich the entries that you create for them.

 Again, not every tribe will make it into this list, even if they have their own style.  Compendiumists have always incorporated descriptions of clothing and architecture into their People entries, or should have, but only the most distinctive ones will be known by more than a few specialists. 

Can you tell Arts and Crafts from Glasgow Rose or Mackenzie?  Thought not.... but most people can distinguish a Celtic motif from an Egyptian one...   so that will be the 'dividing line' for what makes it onto this list. 

Which is not to say that the Eylians won't... just a heads-up there.

Yes I know I come from a small (oh, God, the puns.....) people, but I would think that perhaps at least clothing style might catch on, and their architecture might be present in Santhalan cities, maybe even New-Santhala? E.g. the Eyelian ghettos referenced in the culture section could be particularly influenced.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
