No, Santharia is not all milk and honey.... we actually have some 'race-ism' going on! For example:

Dwarves think Brownies are hyper.

Humans think Elves are stuck-up.

Everybody thinks Dwarves are muleheaded.

(do we even HAVE mules in this universe?)

Gnomes think Mermaids are brainless ditzes.

Mermaids think Humans are far too serious.

Orcs think Brownies are tasty.



Dear me! What we need is a Santharian equivalent of Miss Manners to tell everyone off once in a while! And no, I'm not volunteering. I'm far too busy running around Santharia with my lute and tape recorder (er, pardon me, my scroll and quill pen) collecting these opinions.

:lol      :)      :lol      But doesn't everyone think most Mermaids are ditzes?  Do Dwarves see themselves as muleheaded? Don't Dwarves see Elves as stuck up?  What about thinking Mermaids thinking Elves as serious? (There much more serious then Humans.)  Don't Orcs think anything that's alive is tasty?  Just some questions. :)

Well, my Psyrpents think everyone but Dwarves are frenzied and weak, and everyone but dwarves view them as disgusting abominations.
Mages are just viewed as sneaky by everyone, they think everyone else is kind of stupid.

I like the chart idea Dawn. Maybe you could work with the Bard and set up something for the compendium.

It could look something like this, as an example....


              Human              Elf               Dwarf........

Human         N/A          Stuck up          Muleheaded


Elf            Childish            N/A             Muleheaded

Dwarf        Impatient      Untrustworthy        N/A

I am really afraid of stepping on toes here, so use this format if you want, but sdon't yell at me for trying... LOL.

Sorry for mashing yer toes, ladies.....

At yer service,

Ralhag

(snickering)

It didn't line up so well, but we got the idea, Ralhag.  

And yes, Dawn, help is invariably accepted, although not always graciously (ask Silvercyst!)

But - I had no idea you guys would want to codify my little dissertion!  Great, just great - now it's gotta become part of the Santharian Canon...

(deep sigh)  As long as everyone bears in mind that these are RAMPANT generalizations, I guess it would be ok.  We probably 'know' this all already.  And of course individual attitudes, psychologies, characters and opinions will always mesh or clash no matter what race someone is.  But on the whole I guess we could make some very broad and sweeping 'attitudinal' statements in the form of a chart.  

Adjectives, particularly creative ones, would be better than some sort of numberical/logical ranking, so "mule-headed" "flighty" "elaborate" and "unreliable"  in an A x B format would be preferred to A > B sentence structures like "Dwarves are more loyal than humans"  - which could be misconstrued by almost everyone involved.

I've got a lot to compile for Art already, so if Dawn or Ralhag would like to go ahead and try their hand at this, go for it.  Post it here and we'll all throw in ideas, as above.

Regards from the Bard.

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

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
