OK, a few suggestions, for what they're worth.

Hunters from the North
Ice savages
Northern Demons
Demons from the Ice
Death from the North

These are just a few off the top of my head, I'm sure theremust be plenty more in there somewhere.

BTW, in the Kh'omchr'om forum, I've just noticed that "Ar" translates as "From", so that's handy, eh?

Well, let's see what we can do.  I'm just making this up, these words are not all in the dictionaries


"Carad"--Kuglimz for "born" or "to be born" (made up)

"Ar"--Kh'omchr'om for "from"---this IS an actual word (thanks, Tharoc!)

"Vir" Kuglimz for "one" or "first"--also an actual word

"Jyn"--Kuglimz for "hunt", "to hunt", "hunting" (made up)


Then you could have "Carad'ar'v'jyn"  or "born from [the] First Hunter."  which over the years was twisted into "Kaaer'dar'shin".


What do you think?  Will that etymology work for you, Azhira?


Now for the Pendrowe:


"Ak'ang'ergva'pafalka" would literally translate as "false head of Pafalka" but that is rather unwieldy.  How about "A'ng'erg Pafalka"  for "Mask of the Tree Cousin"?


I've got to go, but see what you think of those and let me know.

Boy, you two are GOOD!

@ Tharoc - I've used your translation for First Born in the Kaaer beliefs entry. Nice touch.

@ Alysse - That etymology works for me! Very nice. I think I'll be revising the main Kaaer entry at some point to integrate all of I've done so far. And, I've use your translation for Mask of the Tree Cousin in the Themed'lon entry.  :D thumbup

Hey, what if we called it the Palz Forest?  That means "Woods" in Kuglimz  :D


I'll look into it.  Perhaps there's some elven influence too.

Did you ever get around to a possible name for the Wood Forest?

Also, in my Wisp entry, I need a name for an Osther-Oc battle hymn. Something violent, yet mystical?

Well, shall we call it the Pallon Forest?  That's a sneaky little Easter egg using both the Kuglim and the Elven words for "woods" and it's a nice euphonious name, don't you think?

As for the hymn--that's harder.  Is it an actual written out song to which we have the words, or just a reference?  If the latter, can I make it something that celebrates Choan of Orc, the famous female orc warlord of the Osther Oc?

Choan of Orc, that would be perfect. It's just a reference.  :)

And I am worried that Pallon sounds too much like Paelelon forest in the south...  undecided

Isn't it though?  (chortles wickedly)



As for the hymn--"Choan'ash'uon'kh'al'on'uck"  could be the full title, called "Choan'ash" for short.  It translates roughly to "Choan the noble Shaman-Warrior", or "Choan the Worthy".  Like her namesake, Choan will be receiving mystical directions/visions from "the gods".  She will be training as a shaman before she becomes a warlord.


Will that be okay?

Alysse and Tharoc!!!

Please see my Kalta'Goor entry at your earliest convenience. I took some liberties and invented some previously unknown orc history, places and even invented an extinct orcen language from which the Kalta'Goor and Karma'Goor names came from. I want to make sure this is ok with you two...

For my part, Az, I have no problems with this at all. You have done a sterling job of creating this whole entry, and I love the idea of a lost Orcen language.
I have also pondered on the possibility of having some form of written Orcen language, even going so far as to draw a few basic symbols which could represent letters, but I couldn't get past thinking that a direct 'translation' of our alphabet is a bit of a cheat. Would they, instead, have symbols which represented groups of letters? Or perhaps, like the Eastern cultures of RL, symbols which represented whole words? I think this is something which needs further investigation at a later date.

As for the entry itself, I love it. The two 'mini-stories' which you included as diary-style entries are especially good.

Thanks, Tharoc for the kind words!

Ok, I have another one for you two to peek at...

Heaths of Eph'denn

Alysse - Make sure I have my flora/fauna accurate. I threw alot in these heaths...

Tharoc - Check my orc stuff. I made up some more history, and explained Hell'wrung a little bit, so please keep me consistent with what you have in mind for your orc boys.

Thanks!  heart

I hope you like your food HOT, Alysse, because orcen cuisine consists mostly of adding Kragghi root...   

I also hope Serf Wargrider washes his hands after mucking out the stables and before preparing supper....

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.
