Sure! But I think I should finish the main entry on the empire and the timeline before we can move on to that.

Also a short note: The items listed under green headings have higher priority ;)

Sure! But I have to warn you though: The Earth Temple is on the continent of Nybelmar and you will have to go through two lengthy entries before starting on the project: The Krath Empire and the Krean men. If you are pressed on time start with the Krath Empire, I will be updating (ie rewriting ;)  ) the Krean entry this week. Also Talia and I need to create their religion first. So all in all it may take a few weeks to get started but I would very much appreciate your help!

Coren, have you started on any of the spells besides those you've already posted?  Ice Touch (or some other better name) is something I've been thinking of doing for some time.

I did not start any of the ones that were origally listed in the water school entry. By all means go for the Ice Touch. If anything else comes up, could you im me about that as well so we don't end up writing the same thing?

Yeah, sure.  Maybe I should make a schedule for myself too.  It's just that it usually takes ages for me to get from having the idea to actually writing it, so I don't really want to reserve anything.  I just wanted to make sure that you haven't actually started work on it, so that if I feel like writing it anytime soon, I won't be doing something redundant.

Self-note

Reference;
"We can solve this by stating that the initial elemental training allows the magi to sense the ounia and their links, but that each of the four ounia types has a different 'vibration' to be attuned to. Only after one proves to be so extraordinary good at magic that one gets allowed to enter Xeua or Ecua training, a mage can go through the intense, and extremely difficult process of destroying the previous speciallised attunement, and attaining the full-spectral sense of ounia the Arch-schools require of their members."

"2c: Perhaps preparing a car'all to respond to a certain catalyst i.e. setting up a person's wind ounia in such a way so that when they take a drink of water they become chilled. I'm just stipulating here."



(Magic for Beginners)
"Idea Subsets"
One subset Idea can be the CONTENT of the superset Idea: eg; The Idea of a Chair within the greater Idea of a Room

- Water-purifier crystals, throat pastils (dark teal - navy colour with veins)

- Slanting/curving roofs, blossoms on the edge, "Falls" of Vines/ropes between which Spilkspiders weave curtains of spilk (home woven spilk)

- "Growing" Language: words continuing their life, to grow and evolve after spoken and interact with following words/sounds. So each word in a sentence continues growing/living after spoken and even a short phrase soon grows its own sub-harmonics and into a cannonic flow.

- The Mythical "Growing"/Live Library: Books contain the essence of the information scribed, which continues to grow, correct, advance, invent itself. Old books die, replaced by 'successors' (so each generation more precise, elaborate and refined. Maybe a few 'bad eggs' every other generation. Note: "Books with character"). Book marriage: info from both combine to give birth to a new subject/thesis/invention?


Notes on Sihitara:
http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,11192.0.html

We can't have that in Sihitara (see below), but I don't see why we shouldn't be able to have that as a neighbouring settlement - sort of the 'workforce' to keep Sihitara running.

Sihitara has a very precise geometric design (I discussed this with Rayne a while ago - it takes a long time to explain the concept though, so I can't promise to do it again soon). Although I don't have the 'content' of each district set in stone yet, there is a very rigid 'structure' that has to be followed: I intend Sihitara to be the epitome of the "symmetry obsession" mentioned in the Krean entry. Basically, the metropolis has radial symmetry: Each district should match its 'yang' (you decide the 'pairs' according to radial sym) perfectly in lay-out. So if there is a central fountain in one district, there should be a fountain of the same size at the exact same spot in the 'complemenatry district'. This applies to everything, from trees to boulevards to the most insignificant 'private' garden or public bench.

That is exactly what makes navigating Sihitara so frustrating for a complete stranger: One feels as if one is continually moving in circles. Imagine running into identical squares over and over and over - makes you go mad, especially if you consider the size of the city...

However, it is not mind-numbingly 'boring' for the Krean inhabitants. Think of it as an insider joke of some sort: While each of the 'pair' districts seems to mirror the other with unnerving precision, the Krean have actually introduced a very significant number of 'nuances' - the more subtle, the more 'fun'. (It is a continuing challenge for the Krean to acquaint themselves with ALL of these 'tricks').

Some of these differences are more glaringly obvious: For instance, the central fountain of one district might be shaped as a Violet Sky Dancer while that of the pair, although identical in proportions, might be a Spiral Butterfly. This is where the 'themes' come into play. Each district should have a distinct theme or 'feel' - which should correspond to the main lines of production/trade there. For instance, the one Rayne and I were co-authoring was the 'flora capital': lots of honey, perfume etc manufacturing - and was one of the bastions for the butterfly sentries/spies. Therefore the 'symbol' was the great Violet Sky Dancer monument (the rotating fountain/cafe). That's also why we introduced the 'veins' of glass aquaducts and tubes watering the city.

I will open Sihitara to devoted Nybelmar developers like Mira and you if either of you is interested once we get the first 'pair' completed as an example of how it should be done. Then all that needs to be done is writing down the 'structure': the symmetry and general substance (ie which district is known for what)


Also, with 'mild poverty', bear in mind that you would be writing for the Krean before the fall of the Empire. Which means 'mild poverty' for the Krean in actually 'upper middle-class' for the average tribe. A lot of money flowing in to the Krean kingdom from trade, feeding its perpetual voracity.

Sihitara is a very 'middle-class and above' (and mind, to KREAN standards) location - the property prices are scorching - so even a decent, little shop hints at a quite wealhty owner... Which is all the more reason to accommodate your idea! We would need TREMENDOUS labour to keep a luxury capital of that size running... (however, remember that even these 'work-camps' should be aesthetical to some extent - we can't have bleak, 'communal' concretes...

remember: Cannes, 14 Juillet. Music before the fireworks >>> transform: little pedestials all around (gardens, especially lining the gulf). Special holiday >> all musicians playing the same thing at the same time (Medieval hoparlor?)

outcomes: school of music >>>> school of dance (instituted by Dearan)


Questions to self:
= Which city? East coast or west? How about Cusca?
- Heavy krean influence or not? Keep it entirely Zhunite?

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.
