Here's the place to post your ideas!

You may write a whole myth, but sketches and ideas are welcome also, as long as they are in a form, where I can mention them in the main entry about him.

Now I need the names also, but please with some explanations, why the moon has this name, who gave him that name etc.. I do need some meat to integrate that.

However, be sure to know, how the moon appears and moves in Caelereth. That's entirely different from the earthen moon!

I summarised the appearance here, hopefully well enough for you to get the gist where to the whole thing aims. I was a bit in a hurry though.  Feel free to ask when something is not clear, but there are the main discussion threads also still available for information!

And now hurry and work!  Whip

Ah, what I forgot, you have time till end of January!

:D

I had an idea some time ago for an orcen myth regarding the sun & moon. It's very sketchy at the moment but basically says that K'han'uck holds the disc in the fingers of one hand, which in turn is held up to his face so he can watch the goings on of his tribes. The sun is his right eye, and as he turns the disc in his fingers, the sky darkens and his left eye, the moon, becomes visible.

I haven't decided yet what each eye is looking at/for. Ideas welcome!

Is this the kind of thing you were after, Talia?

Use the force, Luke.

And if that doesn't work, try switching it off and back on again.

Yes, exactly, Tharoc!

However, I have problems to envision the constellation, the god, holding the disc in his fingers, close to his eyes.

The sun is in the south, so I imagine now, that the god is there with his sun-eye also. He looks on top, but with a flat angle. Then he turns the disc in his hands and it is dark.

But the moon is on the other side (north), so your god would not only have to turn the disc around the north/south axis, but on one staying vertical on the center also.

No problem so far, but the moon is visible at daytime also, faint though, but visible (as on earth). So how would they interpret that and the different times the moons is visible (at night) . The phases should be no problem.

That's a neat idea, Tharoc. Perhaps I could use that concept for the Kaaer. As already developed onsite, the Kaaer have two spirits representing the moon and sun - Suriot (sun - male gender) and Leirgor (moon - female gender).

Perhaps the concept of the sun/moon eyes watching could be done but instead of the god K'han'uck, it would be the two spirits watching during times of day and night. The Kaaer myth gives each spirit a "domain" over their people. Sun and moon watch from above (and also represent wisdom, light, dark and death respectively) while Durgho roams the space between sun, moon and Gynturg the earth.

Anyway, Leirgor represents darkness, hiding (a necessary aspect of the hunt) and funerary (death) rituals.

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.
