Should add the various Writing Implements to this list as well since apparently they're all getting their own entry.

The Brush

Chalk and Slate

Charcoal

Dip Pen

Stylus

Reed Pen

Rune Chisel

Own entries?  What on earth is there to say about the Rune Chisel, to pick one at random, that would take more than a paragraph, or enthrall the reader for more than that length?   The reason we HAVE overviews is to be able to give basic information about existing objects with the minimum complexity combined with maximum detail.    Do we seriously have separate entries for a Reed Pen and a Dip Pen, when we do not even have the beginning of an entry for the capital of Santharia and the royal family is in such a parlous state?

Well Ganinon has started a rather interesting piece on the paintbrush.  However I am a bit biased since I am mentioned in that entry. :)

I agree it would be difficult to make an interesting full-entry on any of these writing implements however if someone has a great idea that surprises us there should be no reason to disallow it.  On the other had I would not force entries on these items just to have them.  Who knows maybe someone in our team is an ancient-writing-implements enthusiast.  :P

Well-put, Seeker!  Of course if someone has the time and energy to put creative concepts together for any of those suggestions, I would love to see it done well.  And while Art can suggest that we focus on certain geographical areas and close devving in others, afaik no one else has the authority either implied or given to actually assign/refuse/shut down individual developers' proposals.   Hopefully my post cannot be interpreted as suggesting that latter case.  Of course, inappropriate, underdeveloped, immature, or outright contradictory proposals will draw enough 'red flags' from a majority of senior/active/specialist developers to make 'policing' unnecessary.   After all, our Sage is not obligated to upload your entry to the site no matter how much fuss you make if it is simply not consistent or of poor quality!    And if someone really wants my humble little Rune Chisel to flesh out into entry status, I'd love to see the results.

Well not to say that every single one needs an extensive entry, but there is several possibilities for a small one to add some lore or other things that aren't necessarily included in the overview.

To me, probably because it's what I've wrote, it's nice to be able to go on that list and be able to click to find out more. Not that it is hugely important to the world of Santharia, but its nice still to know that if you wanted to know more about the paintbrushes or quills here, you can.

Just my two sans. :P

My personal opinion, in case you were wondering, and I know you were (:P), is that I agree with Judith, that it seems kinda crazy that we create full scale entries over these small things when the capital of the Santharian Kingdom lays unentried.

But.... what seperates this site from so many others, is exactly these smaller, magical (metphorically speaking of course) entries that you would find no where else.  These BUTTERBALL DELIGHT, the FARSEER DEVICE, the FEVER REDUCERS AND PURIFIERS and THE LIGHTWATER are but a few of the hundreds of little gems that are here that you would be hard pressed to find elsewhere.

This is what makes us special. :)

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.
