Masterbard!
I need you to take a look at the Dor'en. I have a lack of motivation for edits due to random reasons I cannot explain...

(I think you may have missed it in your business, so i thought i would remind you of it)

*REPOST*

HI BARD!

Anyways, I am just in the process of thinking, and I would like to ask you a few things about a myth i am thinking of for your cute little dwarfsi-....i mean Your Hardy Thergarim.

As you read in Meen and the dragon, there is the Dragon Thuenn ( I forget what his name means, but it is something simple like "brass" or "bronze" or some such thing)

Anyways. I want to make a document of Thuenn for the compendium, but i am curious as to if i would make a library entry, or a people entry. The character is complete myth, but i am not telling a story, so much as telling of the mythic character of the dragon.

(BTW, if you could help me think of a name for this dragon, it would be much helpful. Basically, it's a gold drake that has a vast hoard of wealth, and punishes greedy people and such. He is basically anti greed person  )  



**DISCLAIMER** I apologize to anyone I may have offended in the above post. I would like to assure you that was (most likely) not my goal. I would also like to assure you that the above post (again, most likely) in no way reflects the views of the Santharian boards or their webmaster, Artimidor Federkiel.

High Bard, a Newcomer has some questions for you, but has appearently not discovered the way to your study... would you mind taking a look in the Main Hall? I left him in the waiting area...

Great Masterbard and Mentor!!!

Your apprentice got lost in the dungeon... too many possible routes to take and she is not sure which one works and is seeking some opinions.

Sorry to not have been as efficient but I have been sleeping over Ashmaid and I cannot think of anything original. Help? There is part one and two in the library forum.

Thanks for the heads up and assistance, Mira!

My reply both above and below:

Hello, Swensen!

I use Adobe Illustrator, PhotoImpression, and Paint in conjunction to create my digital illustrations.  However, none of the above are actually meant as 'fine digital art' programs and I would not recommend them to any serious digital artist - just as I create my little pictures with only a Logitech mouse because I do not own and cannot afford a proper tablet and stylus.

I am a bit wary when you simply ask me for 'software', as it suggests that you have done no research on your own and have no experience with computer-assisted art at all.  It took me literally years to make the switch from traditional media into the digital field, and I have years more to go (and doubtless some better tools to buy) before I can begin to produce pieces that have the finish, finesse, and quality of our professional digital artists such as Faugar, Quellion, Eratin, and the like.  

As such, I can't really recommend anything to you.  You'll have to experiment yourself with various free programs such as Oekaki and Gimp (available online - do some googling) , but it is highly unlikely that at first you will be able to produce anything in the digital field that will be of an acceptable level.  Do you have anything online in your own style, whatever that might be, to give us an idea of your current artistry and level of accomplishment?  Please provide a link here, if so.

Regards from the bard,
Judith

Hello Judith! When you have time can you help Decipher out with his White Advisor poem? I would much appreciate if you could guide him there all the way through as I am not at all competent in that area. Thank you! ::hugs::

Hoi Bard Judith,

I'm in the process of working on an entry which will represent an academy of engineering in Nybelmar, and which would include dwarven engineers. Hoever looking around the compendium, there is some vague reference (high dwarves and plain dwarves) but no more, could you possibly enlighten me a bit about which dwarven clan is into engneering and mechanics and evidently would have some individuals which went to the academy to work there in unison with human engineers?

Thank you for your time ^^
Hugs, (or bows if the master bard is untouchable ^^)

(frowns) the quick answer is that the dwarven presence in Nybelmar is not nearly as influential / developed as it is in Santharia, my main focus.

 But yes, the clan entries for both High and Plains dwarves are written and provide information - more than vague references!

Go look at the entry for the High Dwarves, AKA Kiingerim.  There are mentions of catapaults, so that's a start - and the various families within the clan who are responsible for various areas, such as trade, architecture, and the treasury.  You'll have to extrapolate a bit from that, but it's a start!  They would definitely be the clan which sends dwarves out, as the Plains Dwarves keep very much to their own customs and traditions.

Hope that helps!

I'd love to, Niccoli - and by the by, welcome most heartily to the dream - but I'm leaving for camping in a couple of hours for the whole weekend.

I'll be happy to look and comment when I get back; I also have a great hummingbird in the bestiary forum awaiting my perusal, so that will be two things to look forward to!

Oh my gracious mentor, I finished basiloc...well, all except for the description. I was wondering if you could help me with that. I have no idea what to do with that. I added a lot more, so if you could find time to critique it, that would be wonderful. It's kinda low, but I'll bump it. *grumbles about them not going to the top when edited.*

Erm, just wondering if you received my PM.  It's been a while, and I'm not sure whether I messed up somewhere or you just haven't gotten around to answering it yet.

PM?  Er.... (checks)

Oops, yes, I did receive it - concerning Ximax's geography...

Haven't had a lot of time on the boards and am not at home at the moment.

However:  your proposal sounds sensible, as Ximax HAS to receive rain!  Be aware that there are a lot of volcanic areas in the peninsula, some extinct, some still 'active'.  The mountains were originally described by Thuja, I believe, but I tried to flesh them out in my Xirghurim submission (still not finished!) and I do have a sketch at home of how they might appear on the continent.  I'll try to get that to you once I'm back at my own computer and make sure we are 'on the same page' as regards their shape, layout, nomenclature, etc. Sounds good?

Yep, sounds good.  :)

Meanwhile, I think I'll be sending you another PM so as not to clog up this thread with the geography discussion.

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
