Title: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 08 October 2006, 16:13:40
This thread you should use if you want to reserve any kind of picture, musical resources etc., which you can find in the Santharian Resources Base (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,3785.0.html).

Just state which resouce you'd like to use for what purpose and if everything's fine with this usage, you'll get the ok and you can start working on an entry.

Please note that

... you shouldn't reserve too many pictures at once - get working on an entry instead to integrate one or two.

... your reservation will be removed again if an entry still isn't in sight after a few weeks. If there are no other people grabbing the picture, you might still get it, but if someone else can integrate a picture much faster with his/her ideas while you cannot get to it, it will be assigned to this other person without much discussion.

... members, who actively integrate pictures are preferred to those, who have many plans, but don't actually manage to get to writing the necessary entries. To get on the preferred list, just make sure to write entries to pictures already existing.

I'd like to use Quellion's #109 Hexagenaswarm for my first entry. It will be an entry for the beasiary about these deadly insects that are featured in the image :)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Mina on 10 October 2006, 08:02:49
It's already been used here (http://www.santharia.com/bestiary/groshmite.htm).  I guess Arti just forgot to uipdate it. 


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Eatherion on 10 October 2006, 08:16:25
I actually just stumbled across the Groshmite entry, just now *doh* Ah well... I was actually on my way here to let Artimidor know about it  :P


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 10 October 2006, 14:56:34
Yes, yes, I still need to remove a bunch of already used pictures - sorry for that. Seems I'm always in the way between you and your first entry for some reason, Eatherion :shocked: - I'll get to remove the already used resources this evening! Maybe you'll discover another picture though ;)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 11 October 2006, 04:40:32
Ok, picture resources are now up to date - everything you see in the various picture threads and doesn't have a "reserved for" near it is ready for taking! :)

I was just wondering if it would be Ok to integrate Faugar # 28 for Sangiuary Block.  It basically shows what the spell describes IMHO.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 12 October 2006, 02:34:50
Yes, the picture is pretty general and could be used for that purpose... I'll integrate it then at this entry - thanks for pointing it out, Drasil!

I'd like to reserve Quellion #508 for my masterwork, if it's not taken.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 07 November 2006, 05:02:51
No, not taken yet, so available for your masterwork, Irid!  :grin:


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Drasil Razorfang on 07 November 2006, 08:22:43
I was wondering if I could use Faugar #29 if it is not already reserved or taken. 


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Lady Cherri on 03 December 2006, 12:05:08
Okay, just how much of a small fee would it be to commission one the available artists to do a portrait for my character.  I would then like to incorporate into my CD and make it an avatar (just the face).  I am looking for someone who draws elves beautifully and a full length portrait.  So what, price wise, am I looking at and how do I pay?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 03 December 2006, 17:27:21
Missed that question, Drasil - Faugar #29 is the Hurrican picture. I would suggest to mention where you'd like to integrate it, that makes it easier to see if it really fits ;)

@Cherri: A colour portrait face closeup is usually around $20, full sized chars are around $50 and up, depending on the amount of background detail, but you can of course discuss precise details with the artist. Here's a detailed chart (http://www.santharia.com/commissions/portrait_service.htm) what Quellion and Faugar can do for you - I'm sure they can come up with a beautiful and very unique picture for your character :)

You might also look around at their team page and see what pictures they did so far to see if the style fits you.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Lady Cherri on 04 December 2006, 02:45:00
Sounds like a $50 charge to me.  :-)  So how do I pay?  I have already checked out Quellion' and Fauger's galleries and like both styles immensely.  So do I just bell ring them then and see who wants to do it and has the time to?

Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 04 December 2006, 03:09:04
Yep, that's the best option - this way they surely won't miss your request :)

In order to specify what you want to see on the picture properly it is also suggested to answer the questions posed at the mentioned commissions page - you don't need to fill out the page, but can put the info just in a regular e-mail to the artist, but these specifications help a lot to draw what you're really looking for :D

As mentioned in the submission, I'd like to reserve Quellion's #103 Fortress for my entry on Keep Mistrash.

Post by: Lady Cherri on 07 December 2006, 13:36:38
Just to guesstimate, how long should I wait to hear from someone?  I mailed them over the weekend and haven't heard anything yet...and I still haven't seen anything regarding how to send my payment.  I will be using US currency, so MO or do you accept credit cards? :grin:


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Mirmec Rethindor on 07 December 2006, 13:44:19
i think you are to set it up with the individual person, i dont thnk they handle money through this site. It maybe your chosen artist has an indivdual website and you arrange matters through that? Have you tried a websearch on their name? Also if you look some of the art work is signed, you could look for that as well. I know many artists do not handle the ordering of their work directly but are many times under the cover of umbrella operations especially as regards to intenet sales. So if they have a website they probably have a paypal portal or other euro sales option.

But ia m not an authority, just offering hopefully helpful advice.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 07 December 2006, 16:00:43
Paypal is usually easiest for the artists, I always did so so far with Paypal :) - And give them guys some time, they surely get back to you, I know that Faugar at the moment is a bit busy with his job, and Quellion just yesterday sent me a new version of the Santhtalk background, so he surely is alive and drawing, so I'm sure he'll get back to you soon :D


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Quellion on 08 December 2006, 01:40:49
Hi Cherri, Artimidor pointed me to this thread. I received and answered your email three days ago, I have just resent it, check to see if it arrived now. I'm a bit busy right now too, but by the end of next week I would be ready to start with it. As for the payment, yep, PayPal is fine.

Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 30 January 2007, 01:36:37
I haven't given up on Quellion's Dagen the architect - my next entry (as soon as I am finished with the uri-check for decipher's masterwork and the two 80% complete entries I left to drown in the forums).

Actually the picture can go up a lot earlier than the person entry - with the Great Hummingbird (weird connection? better keep an eye on the Malisebird entry then ;) )

Could I please reserve #2 - Corvus Corax by Sheil


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 10 February 2007, 03:52:01
What are your plans for this picture? To what kind of entry do you want to add it, Deci?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Decipher Ziron on 10 February 2007, 03:56:22
Oh sorry... For the first witch queen of Marmarra-Eluda (I think I'll keep that name). Coren thought this picture would represents her temptation to the 'forbidden arts'.(Also there is the grey cloaked figure who appears suspicously like a 'fallen' white advisor). This doesn't make much sense without knowing the background info...

Basically for the Marmarra project I have planned after my masterwork


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 10 February 2007, 04:02:16
Okeydokey, I'll reserve it then for you!


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 10 February 2007, 04:13:22
Can I be utterly ambitious and request another picture for an already completed entry? Linda Tso's #1 "Dusk Lights" could have been a painting I commissioned for Naezshan Zhun (the Zhunite desert) -

Quote from the Krath entry:
Quote
Beware: Naezshan Zhunith, the “Desert of Zhun” in the High Tongue of Aca-Santerra, was not always a desert! Until the Breaking (see history), the grassy lowlands of Nybelmarasa[3] as it was then called were perhaps the most fertile and versatile in the Empire. These scenic plains irrigated by so many meandering rivers, with the bright rays of a Zhunite sun sparkling off their waters, supported not only almost every crop known to the Krathaszar but primed the largest husbandry sector of the vast empire, flocks after flocks grazing on its lush pastures.

Nybelmarasa, as the only region not caged in by mountain ranges, served as Krath’s portal to foreign lands, hence the epithet “The Grand Gate”. There is also a less romantic story for how the expression came about: When the Empire expanded towards the north from Zhun, Nybelmarasa became the “Gate” through which the Krathamar expelled the tribal black orcs and human nomads to arid wastelands of Orcal and Vaenath respectively. The open plains were the ideal place to station and manoeuvre the Empire’s gargantuan army. Hundreds of outposts dotted Krath’s new borders, protecting them not only from Orcristh attacks in the west but the reckless assaults of Chyrakisth warbands and barbarian raids to the east; mighty citadels watched over his hidden treasures.

The most important land trade routes of the West once converged here. The Great Asaen Roads[4], the safest and by far the best tended highways in the Empire, had been built to facilitate this colossal passage of commerce. “The Courtyard of Nybelmar” saw the zenith of Krath architecture during the reign of Emperor Dearan Asaen. Even today, a lonely traveller trekking through Naezshan Zhunith, the barren desert which was once the breathtaking Nybelmarasa, may see the remnants of this august architecture: ruins of an ancient fantasy, which have like the ghosts of the ancient civilization withstood the passage of time unharmed but forgotten.

If one looks at the picture, one not only sees a fortress/citadel squatting in the middle of nowhere, as if the land around it had been gorged and removed by the gods themselves. Also the now diluted/shallow beds of what must have been great rivers can be seen all over the marvelous painting. To me this illustration creates the perfect setting for Nybelmara's story: A feeling of 'the golden days of the past' / 'the faded reflection of past glory' permeates the entrie picture. Further, the geography itself hints at a cataclysmic event in its creation (the Breaking!)

What do you think?



Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 10 February 2007, 04:17:19
I guess #13 - Soulfinder would also make a great Queprur picture. We can make her more ambivalent in her appearance, and the raven there is a typical symbol of death. As are the wings, as this hints to the Kiivosh (Gryph of Soulds), her mysterious messenger travelling between the worlds to bring the souls. This picture can easily be integrated at various entries dealing with death, like the Fall of Fá'áv'cál'âr myth and others. - What do you think?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 10 February 2007, 04:20:45
(Concerning Judy's proposals: Already made proposals will be taken into consideration, Coren.)

Concerning the Zhunite Desert: This can be arranged, but of course the picture will end up at the location part of the Zhunite men entry for now, so its use will be less effective as if we'd had an entry on the desert itself, where it could be placed on top.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 10 February 2007, 04:57:25
Why not on the Krath Empire entry itself? (that's where the quote is from) I think it might also illustrate the general Nybelmar entry. I would love to write an entry for the desert itself but I do have to restrain myself - for I have the terrible tendency to promise loads of entries and then realize I sadly do not have the time to finish them when I wanted to. (Eg Quallion's dagen picture, i am STILL writing that... And the first Quallion picture I wanted to reserve three years ago,the mage fight - believe it or not that entry is STILL sitting on my computer...)


As regards the effective picture positioning issue:

*idea-bulb* What about the Doimo entry? I could add a few sentences to explain why the structure is there, but I think Linda's and Judith's geography match each other (the same mountain features etc) - so it shouldn't be too out of place there?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Decipher Ziron on 10 February 2007, 22:33:40
Could I please have a crop of Sheil's totol picture (the snakes in the corner) for my Festra entry (already on the site)?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Grunok the Exile on 12 February 2007, 12:18:02
Oh, I thought this would happen - I wanted "Dusk Lights" for Santharia!  I thought it would work perfectly for the Higher and Lower Fores.  Oh well: first in, first served I guess!  My idea wouldn't be done for some time, anyway. 

Still, in case it comes free, I'd like to post that and one other idea I had so that I can tentatively reserve the pictures for me later.  Of course, if a better idea comes sooner the pictures should be integrated with those entries...  Well, here are my hopes anyway (as copied out of my Development Schedule):

1. Rework of the Goutonch School for Ladies using info from Cio (an RP char of mine)'s story to fill out the process of bargaining, working in Linda Tso's #2, "Invitation".

3. Entry for the High Fores and Lower Fores in Xaramon/Vardynn using Linda Tso's #1, "Dusk Lights".

*Lowers Head in Shame*

BTW: Art could I reserve Sheil's picture of the crested dinosaur (the one I included in the Jegra thread) for that entry (forgot the title)?

EDIT: This one '#3 - Deinonychus Antirrhopus'


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 13 February 2007, 03:31:20
Arti, would it be possible to include the Lillivear & Aestera paintings (in the Krean entry) under the people section of the Grand Empire of Krath entry? Thumbnails or sort of postal stamp style?(with eventually a 'stamp' for all the listed tribes etc)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Decipher Ziron on 13 February 2007, 03:32:53
Like the type of elves (wood,dark, ice ECT.) in the overall race entry...that size picture?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 13 February 2007, 03:35:06
Well not in the same circular format perhaps but something similar? I'm thinking of the frames Artimidor - i think - one prepared: with the two pictures 'attached' together, sort of diagonally on top of each other?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 13 February 2007, 03:47:38
@Deci: Yep, #3 - Deinonychus Antirrhopus now reserved.

@Deci II: I will try to check if there's a larger version of the snake for the enlarged version, and use that crop. Don't want to bother Sheil every second day, though, so I'll wait a bit with that, we have some more stuff to integrate in the meantime anyway.

@Coren: You mean the "Lillivear priestess" and the "Aesteran lady on her way to a midnight soiree" put over each other like here (http://www.santharia.com/general/dev_rules_places.htm) for example? - Yep, that can be done.

@Coren II: Well, Grunok I guess technically already requested that landscape picture at the first thread I've made if I remember correctly. So maybe we'll give that picture to the one who gets faster to write an own entry on it - which can last years for Coren and Grunok won't be back for several months also now, so chances are even... :lol:

@Grunok: Ok, "Invitation" is also reserved now for you.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 13 February 2007, 04:05:29
Yep that's perfect!

As regards Coren II - LOL! It seems we are cultivating a reputation dear Grunok!


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Mina on 20 February 2007, 15:57:51
Perhaps this picture (http://stuff.santharia.com/arbaon/cerberus.jpg) (Arbaon #4) could be used in the War of the Chosen entry?  It does sort of look like a mage summoning some sort of monster, which should not be too strange for that era. 


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Drasil Razorfang on 20 February 2007, 23:33:44
Also, just pointing out, Arabon signed the bottom right corner and I believe you told Drucilla that signatures could not be put on pictures taht need to be upladed.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 21 February 2007, 05:30:39
I think if the picture fits somewhere then indeed to the WoC. The WoC entry however is old and already has an imagine used in it. Could be used here again, though, but of course isn't that effective at an outdated entry. Could be added to the History table overview together with the other picture to represent the age.

Signature: Well, first of all I'll contact Arbaon anyway asking for a possibly larger version - and if he has it, without the signature. If that fails, I'll adjust the picture usually accordingly at that part and add in our standard signature in the enlarged version.

I am working on the White Drake - I was wondering if I could reserve Sheil's "Furry Dragon II" and "Deadly Encounter" (both in Sheil's first gallery, #6 and #15 respectively).

EDIT: I've been thinking...could I tag #5, #6, #15 and #16 of that gallery? They all seem closely related...


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 23 February 2007, 04:43:58
Well, one after the other, Morcaanan...  :grin:

If you make that white drake 2 pics could be added in for example, and another one might fit into a story or something related to it - maybe you have some ideas as you go along writing it? :)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Morcaanan on 23 February 2007, 06:58:15
That's close to what I was thinking, actually, I was going to use #15 and #16 for the Myth/Lore section.

OK, you've got me on a track here. If I could have #5 and #6 for the actual White Drake entry, then, maybe #15 and #16 for a story about this Elven woman and her Drake, would that be acceptable? Obviously the entry would come first, then the story, so they would be reserved in that order - sound OK?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 23 February 2007, 07:32:55
Yep, sounds fine to me :)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 01 March 2007, 04:09:25
@Decipher: I got the snake we've talked about (intended for the Festra Flying snake), now in full size, see here (http://stuff.santharia.com/sheil/snakes.jpg). Check the pic again and see if there are some adjustments in the entry that would need to be made to fit perfectly to the image!

Also: Sheil has two new pictures ready for taking drawn along the line of the last Krean pics we've put up. I've added them to the Sheil Resources thread, Part II (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php?topic=11418.msg133141#msg133141), #42 and #43! :D

Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources

Ok, #43 now reserved for Takór!


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Takór Salenár on 09 March 2007, 05:14:51
Coren has better ideas how to use this picture (#43, Darshana) and it fits to the one he already has, so I give this one back  - in his hands.

I would like to reserve this one instead, which I don‘t like as much as the other one, but which fits better anyway for a priestess of Queprur:

Sheill: #9 Sing me a song


I have some questions and concerns to the other uploaded pictures: Why are here several black and white drawings, I thought all should be replaced which are on the site?

There are some others which don‘t fit our style as well like #26 Green Fairy, apart from that it suggests that fairies are allowed to develop (which they are not, at least Artemis was not allowed to do them when she joined). I think there should be a note close to the pic, that it can only be used for a myth etc if we really want to take it..

Another pic with which I have problems is #8 Into the dark - this is obviously the earth-moon and doesn‘t fit in our world where the moon is more looking like a soft glowing pearl on his bright site - if I remember correctly. Maybe Sheill could alter it for us?

A last point - I think we agreed about, that we don‘t want to have angels in Caelereth. Too much an earthen cliché. But the following pics are hard to use without having to think at angels when looking at them

#1 Ephemeral
#35 Solaris

A bit more consistence would not hurt or maybe it should be written down at a prominent place what is not wanted in this world (Like „common“ fairies or angels) so that everybody can see it before he invests too many ideas and commentators could refer to it as well?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 09 March 2007, 05:59:19
Ok, #43 is now changed to a Coren reservation.

Sheil #9 now reserved for you - any specific idea already in which entry to use it? Could be the Queprur main entry as well, if so, a short description would be handy of what we see on the picture.

What do you think of #13 as a picture of Queprur BTW?

#8 is practically the same figure as #13, without the moon, though. Well, and we still don't know how the Caelerethian moon looks like, eh?

As for certain pictures that don't immediately look useable: Coren already managed to get one in with an elegant explanation in the Krean entry, so it's basically a challenge for creativity. Fairies could be e.g. part of fairy-tales (hence the name... :grin:) The Green Fairy has a somewhat different style, but I still thought it could perhaps be usable - the style is not too extreme. Black and white drawings (I guess I mentioned that) are included, even though they are not (yet) coloured. They cannot be directly used, but I could ask Sheil to consider a colouring in case we have a definite use for one. Some pictures are also interesting as only parts of them are useful - so it's difficult to generalize.

It could be mentioned at the top post of each artist resources thread that certain pics can be used only under special conditions etc. - ok, will think of something and add that in! :)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Takór Salenár on 09 March 2007, 06:46:53


#9 - Priests of Queprur (see above, already started )

#13, maybe, perhaps if the entry is a bit twisted, this soul gryph relation could work out here (maybe she is pictured herself as being this soulgryph), the staff with this red stone has to be explained though

#8 - but we know how the earthen moon looks like - and this is a photo of it integrated here.

Yes, Coren found some nice interpretations for these coloured wings - but they were more easily to explain than what is left. And even with a good explanation the word „angels“ will always form in your head when looking at especially these two.

Is there any chance that a commissioned one of Linda Tso can be used? I would be interested in this one:

http://www.stickydoodle.com/html/dabusts3.htm
Seribaba-Sheba

If it would be possible I would integrate these bright signs on the forehead and arm into the submission of the priests of Queprur.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 09 March 2007, 23:09:34
Commissioned works of Linda Tso: Sorry, but no chance to get any of those.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 10 March 2007, 03:45:57
I agree with Talia on the angels point. If we have decided not to include angels it will be difficult for these to be used without evoking that concept in readers' minds. A rose by any other name...

We only have two of them anyway...

However, perhaps they could be used in a story? Maybe some folkloric tale about the gods giving a woman wings to escape imprisonment on some forlorn castle (I am sure our talented writers can come up with something less cliche!). So long as the wings are not used as a symbol of divinity or goodness or any other supernatural/angel related stuff, we migh be able to use them?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 10 March 2007, 03:50:33
Btw I have a short person entry for #42. As soon as the bulk of it is edited, I will post it on the forums. However don't expect a traditional Coren entry this time ;) Just to get the picture integrated and a live manifestation of a key period of Krean history (mentioned in the new nybelmar timeline).

@Talia: Thanks! But are you absolutely sure you will not be using this one? I don't want to pounce on your reservations!

I would like to reserve Quellions necrophobia for my first magic spell. It will be a wind spell that targets the persons mind but the first must be asleep but it will make their worst fears happen in a dream and possibly make the person die of a heart attack or go insane. Anyways if you dont like it just tell me. :grin:

(although it's not going to be for a dragon entry :))


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 17 April 2007, 03:36:18
First I thought you mean #14 - Thorny Beast, as this one I imagined not to be made for a Bestiary entry but some sort of fairy tale where a dragon somehow got these thorns (through some magic, as a punishment by a God, at any rate nothing natural etc.). At least I can imagine something like that - maybe I can think of something myself sooner or later.

Anyway, I've reserved Spikey Dragon now for you, Mira - seems to end up in Nybelmar, right?

Fagaur #30, Nimble Monk for the Quarterstaff entry?

Isilhir's Ice Elf (Sorry I forgot the number) for the Cyhallrhim?

I'd like to reserve Quellion's Anarchy, 116, for illustrating part 4 of my masterwork.

Quellion 117 has already been used by Mina to illiustrate shielding winds.

Quellion 121, Dragonslayer works well with the Sword of Medoc, though an expansion of the entry will probably be needed. (I can do this sometime after June eighth)

Sheil 15 and 16 can both either go with Morc's story or drake entry, depending on which is prefered.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 19 May 2007, 02:48:48
Let's see:

Faugar #30, Nimble Monk - I'm very unsure about that one, as it so clearly depicts Eastern Earthen culture. Maybe we should remove it from the resources?

Quellion's Anarchy #116: Which entry would that be specifically, Drasil? Can be reserved, no problem.

Quellion's Shielding Winds: now removed!

Quellion #121: Well, the Katya story still isn't finished, so you don't know how it will all end. And Katya didn't actually kill the dragon with it (yet) as is suggested in that picture... I guess after her trip to the Bone Queen she now has another weapon, if I remember correctly.

Sheil #15 is already reserved for Morc's coming story, and at the entry we have already two other pics...

Hi ,Art!


Could we use Arbaon's picture number 6 (Engineer)  for Santhworld, at the Lorehold?  You could have the player go up to the roof of the building (by way of a hidden staircase perhaps?) discover the builders up there and talk to them for some more information.  That wouldn't mean it couldn't be used elsewhere later as well.

What do you think? That might be fun to write.

Alysse.


P.S.  My husband explored the rat entry at the Lorehold and laughed so hard he nearly fell off his chair.  He told me to congratulate you on it, that it was absolutely hilarious.  I thought so too.  Great stuff!  My kids (ages 9 and 7) loved it too, and are eager for more stuff to be added so they can "have adventures there."   Thomas wanted to know if we could report to you how rude the librarians were, but I had to explain the program didn't work that way.  :lol:


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 07 June 2007, 03:50:45
I don't see a concrete reservation for the dwarven builder - if Judy has no objection on the fact that dwarves help with renovating or expanding the Lorehold that could work. The building might resemble the Lorehold as well, Main Hall in front, then the structure as it is layed out here. We don't have a picture of the dwarf looking at the player though, but we can manage. Would at any rate be interesting for the player to discover that constuction is going on here, would have a surprising effect :D - The pic could then also go into the Lorehaven entry, to illustrate the Lorehold.

And glad you enjoyed the additions :) BTW: Not all people in the Library are unfriendly, our little ratty friend surely is very cute (you just don't understand him...) and Artimidor surely can be seen as an exemplary case of politeness :)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Alysse the Likely on 07 June 2007, 05:22:28
It should be okay to have dwarves, since Lorehaven is such a multicultural town.  I can check with Judy about which ones they would be.  SHE might want to write the entry--once her schedule clears up a little.

Oh, and Thomas meant specifically the librarians (the ones I wrote, who kick people out of rooms), not the other characters.  He just thought they should be reported to you as "the guy in charge". :D

'   You step out into the next room and pause, thinking that the Great Sage Artimidor Federkiel would doubtless have reprimanded the woman gently for her curtness - if only you could learn how to be so tactful...   Ah well, more rooms await to explore..."

And yes, I'll have to look, but I'm sure dwarves are involved in construction projects all over Santharia, though more generally with stonework and masonry than with carpentry and joinery...

Well, yeah, that's of course always a problem. People reserve entries months and years ago, and it's unsure when they'll get to the entry.  :undecided: In this case the reservation wasn't even marked, because it was quite unsure methinks.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 01 July 2007, 17:25:10
Well Arti I think I mentioned that reservation at least 10 times by now and also noted that I had the entry started. I could post an incomplete version should you need proof - however, I would have thought that you would know by now that I work on my entries very very slowly. That does not mean however that I merely lay claim to pictures (like July & Darshana) and never do anything active about them.

I have put a lot of effort into this entry and would loathe to lose Dagen - however if I must relinquish one picture in return, you can have Darshana if you must. I adore that painting - and burrowed it from Talia - but as I have two more painting that need entries before that (the architect and Rezar)...

Would it be ok to use Linda Tso #6 (http://stuff.santharia.com/tso/6.jpg) in the Brownie Beads Entry as an example of how the beads could be encorporated into a dress?  I was going to say that the pink textured strip at the very top of her dress was covered in hundreds of tiny beads, and then talk about some of the more obvious ones on the cloth, hair piece and arm band.  There is also a butterfly-wing shaped space on her lower abdomen with a potentially sequined texture.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 17 February 2008, 21:12:16
Hmmm... The picture to me seems primarily to represent a drawing (e.g. of a Santharian artist) of a sad woman that collects her tears in that bowl, so I would have imagined it to be some sort of tragic figure.

So that quality of the pic would somehow be lost if we'd explain it as an image that primarily shows the clothes and beads - know what I mean? That's a difficult bridge to build, because these beads you see integrated in her dress could have a deeper meaning, that these are her tears. At least that was my impression.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Rookie Brownbark on 17 February 2008, 22:14:11
Hmmm, I guess you are right.  It does seem more of a mood picture than the sort of portrait which I would have used it as.  It is a lovely dress though ;).


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources

Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Rookie Brownbark on 17 February 2008, 22:33:16
Can I do that?  And would it be strange if the full picture was then used later on?  I won't want to stop the full one being used, but then I suppose if it was used you could always change the caption below my smaller part to fit with the other entry? 

This sort of thing would be what I would go for....

Post by: Alysse the Likely on 29 March 2008, 03:05:18
Would it be possible to use just the background of Arbaon's "Archer" picture for one of the passageways in the Lorehold?   (maybe at the courtyard where you go outside, or for the passageway from Gamoren's room to the outdoors?) I don't think we can use the archer for that, but the background is a nice piece of architecture and I thought he might have it saved separately as well.


Oh, and the background of the Skeleton piece is nice as well--if we have a storm coming up over the Lorehold so you're told to stay in anyway...

Alysse


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 29 March 2008, 03:39:13
Hmm... I can ask Arbaon for larger versions so that we can make crops... The right part of the Archer pic surely would be possible to use. At the courtyard however we now have a double door that is anchored in the game with conditions. So this is not shown on the pic, but we might find something else... Passageway out of Gamoren's cellar room might fit better.

At the Skeleton picture it is difficult to get out a proper crop, however. Well, we'll see.

Looked at other Arbaon pics - we might have some interesting stuff here for other adventure areas, like in Nepris: A really cool graveyard, and there could be something hidden under those roots we have in the final picture there in the resources...

     Would just like to bring up my question from before. Would the picture Sheil #19 - Deadly Creatures fit for the Wolf Overview? The first myth, A Battle of Evil was inspired by the picture. Was looking around it caught my eye.
     "A Battle of Evil. This tale dates back to the War of the Chosen, to the time when drakes and wargs served dark masters. They played their parts in the destruction, revealing in the power of holding the life of one in their grimy claws. They enjoyed the disaster and chaos. While both demon drake and warg fought for the same side, they were bitter enemies all the same. Trouble was brewing behind their own lines as the tension between beasts grew and the time for trouble drew near. The dark mages were blind to the trouble boiling behind their lines, believing they controlled and held both beasts in their grasp... and so it came to be that on one of the darkest days, the battle broke out."
     Just thought I'd bring it back up since the small discussion on it got lost in the help that the entry recieved. :)

Though I don't presume to be an expert, I'm pretty sure dragons are not a sentient race in Caelereth--there are plenty of them in our bestiary but I don't think any of them are sentient, Fox.  Is that what you had in mind by "dragon 'person' entry"?

Alysse

Nearly all the great dragons are sentient, complete with their own language, culture, religion, and so on. If you read the Ice Dragon entry (which was one I was planning to make), it says in it that they often take mortals on as 'familiars' and communicate telepathically with them just fine.

Drakes are the non-sentient ones, but many great dragons are as intelligent if not more so than the common races.



Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Alysse the Likely on 22 April 2008, 11:02:19
It doesn't say specifically in the individual entries which Great Dragons are sentient, though.  I assumed that was a very simple type of communication--after all, people and animals can communicate quite well in RL.   If that is the case, I apologize--but I did not realize that they were sentient to the degree that you say.  In the overview (which I had not read before, just the individual entries), it briefly mentions that "Most of the Great Drakes are sentient dragons", but there is no entry (that I could find) that discusses specifically which dragons, their language, culture or religious beliefs in any detail. 

This being so--would dragons even communicate with people to the extent that they (people of Caelereth) would KNOW the dragons are sentient?    We might know about the ice dragon, because of its telepathic link, but how would we know about the others?

I'm not trying to argue with you here--just wondering how we as Compendium researchers would be able to get this information.   None of the stories we have on dragons suggest that they are prepared to co-operate with people to that extent.

Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Fox on 22 April 2008, 12:07:22
There's a few threads around detailing some more ideas on dragons, done by Morc. There's also a few myths and even history pertaining to other sentient great dragons (Ol'dem'brey of course as a big example). There is also, of course, Capher, a quite sentient shapechanging dragon.

As far as people knowing they are sentient.. I'm sure there would be plenty of myths, stories, and encounters to make people believe it, yes. How much of it is actually true or verifiable on the other hand isn't really available. For what I was planning, the dragon was going to be very far north in North Sarvonia, and would have only very minor contact with humans.. but the humans who interacted with it would have written down their experiences, though I was explicitly going to say that none of the material in the entry is verifiable. Regarding the other dragons, though, I don't know nor was I going to say, I am assuming they are mostly sentient (Morc is the person to ask in this regard concerning which ones, and how sentient each are), though my entry was going to deal purely with an ice dragon, which already have 'in-character' dragon/human relations.

I was going to have my entry written from a third party, but with access to stories and reports that were supposedly written down or left behind by the actual familiar(s) of the dragon. Therefore, again, it isn't entirely verifiable, but enough to write an entry on--we already have many things written down, even in history, that are rather mythical and not verifiable... so of course it's up to the people whether they wish to believe it or not.



Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Alysse the Likely on 22 April 2008, 22:35:52
Okay, thanks for clarifying that, Fox!

It be neat to see what parallels there are in dragon culture with the other sentient races we have developed--such as music (if any), rules concerning social interaction, the ways in which they view other sentient races, etc.  Having done work on such things for the Kuglimz tribes and the orcish groups, (to the extent of having written AND performed songs in actual orc language for this site, see current update) I always find such concepts interesting.

Yep, some personalisation of dragons was discussed - especially at Great Drakes, who are meant to be rare. This all with the intention to make these dragons realisitically possible in this world by reducing their numbers and giving them character. As Morc isn't really much around these days I'd say you can go ahead with this, Fox - maybe send him a PM first, though, to make sure he know what you're planning.

I'd like to reserve Sheil's Ice Dragon #27 (http://stuff.santharia.com/sheil/27.jpg) and Dragon 5 #45 (http://stuff.santharia.com/sheil/45.jpg) for the Kalta'Goor entry.

Since Coren pointed out he didnt reserve #7 Hummingbirds of Sheil- Is it OK if I have it? It can be included in the Marmarra entry once its dusted up as well as the Kogian Five person entry (when I add the finishing touches).


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources

If it is not already being used elsewhere, I would like to reserve Faugar's Hurricane (Picture #29) for the Element of Wind Entry.

I think the picture would work well to show the destructive and chaotic power of wind.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Jude the Archivist on 16 September 2008, 10:58:12
Would it be alright if I asked to reserve Sheil's #21 - Dragon II? Just thought of a myth where a dragon is turned into a million butterflies. If anyone else needs it for a better purpose I don't mind.



Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 17 September 2008, 02:28:31
@Gwai'ayia: The hurricane picture surely fits into the wind aspect, yup, so reserved for you now!

@Jude: You can also use that one for a myth, I guess. Depends also where you want to put it. Do you intend to make more of an own story, fairy-tale, legend of sorts for the Library? Or do you want to add it to a specific entry?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Jude the Archivist on 17 September 2008, 08:30:21
Probably just a myth or fairytale for the library.

    But it would be nice if I could attach it to a existing entry on a species of butterfly, though the Grey Bloodmoth somehow seems more appropriate. But I was going to first ask Val O'Neil or Miraran what they thought instead of trying to get it attached to a random butterfly entry without their opinion.

Sheil's Picture #44 - Dragon 4

This greatly interests me... A Belrog-like Dragon-shaped Demoncalled a Mephércoór Demon. Hmm, i'd like to reserve it, if no one has any objections to it.

A beast that haunts the deepest and darkest places where blood has spilled in the past. they are not etheral normally but they can take on the properties of etheral if it wants to. all but the most powerful priests should battle one, and only in large numbers, as not only they immune to most if not all magics, they also are faster and slyer than many that would do battle with it. Their cold breath is so putrid that it melts flesh from bone.

Size? well... about 50 to 65 feet long and about 20 feet tall.
weight? almost nothing if it wants to be.
Markings? Red horns that surround its head like a mane as well as deep red eye-like patterns upon each of its four deep-black wings.

Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 09 October 2008, 04:03:48
A Dragon is rarely if ever a Demon. Also, both classes of creatures are restricted, so you will need special permission to write that entry.

I would like to claim Sheil #25 - Frozen for an upcoming Spiked Dolith Drake (probably name revision), which would be a development of the referenced 'Spiked Drake' posted by Xera, though lack of details would give me free-reign on it.

Anyway, this entry is the works and will be posted at somepoint in the forseeable future (after Marmarran neccesities are fleshed out or at somepoint inbetween).

Thanks in advance,

I'd like to reserve Ingeborg's 'Lands of Heaven' for the Amber Coasts of Tarshiin...possibly illustrating ideas of mine for a Tarshiinite Tale with the working title 'Descent into the Amber'....

I recognise the last one I reserved hasn't been used yet- but this one would have many more entries tied to it, so if this is an issue with me being 'too greedy' as it were, I would rather keep this one and let the other one slide.

If there are no contentions though, I'd like both :grin:


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 28 November 2008, 04:08:12
Guess there shouldn't be a problem with reserving both at the moment, Deci. Just make sure to get something up using a picture - only if an image has been reserved for a while and it doesn't get used, someone else might get it if there's a better usage for it :)

You said that already, but we would like to know for which submission you intend to use it, so that we can see, if it fits. Problem is, that a very similar picture is already used for an entry and this way it might be problematic.

It was part of those resources mentioned as being availible in a large list on page two or three of the resource forum. Found on Arbaon's DA page.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 07 April 2009, 04:18:14
I see you're perfectly right at that, Valan... So this (http://billcorbett.deviantart.com/art/The-Sentinel-77311700) is the one you speak of - a pretty cool picture for an entry indeed! So yup, if you have a good idea how to use it - why not?

I've now updated the thread with Arbaon's pictures and included Arbaon's mail where he mentions the pictures he gives explicit permission. Maybe I should move the pics over to the thread so that they can be found easier...


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Valan Nonesuch on 07 April 2009, 04:31:46

It's customary to include the entries you would like to reserve the works in question for.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Bard Judith on 29 June 2009, 08:55:31
Since all the 'entries' Ulver has posted are either completely random attempts to insert self-serving (possibly pre-written from another universe or genre, and seemingly intended to further an RPG character's invention) concepts not even in the most basic of relationships to Santharia, including templating, or blatantly copied from another web source, I don't think we need concern ourselves: those reservation requests will not be honoured from someone who cannot honour our basic principles.

Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Shabakuk Zeborius Anfang on 26 September 2009, 08:03:39
Ah, good point, Seeker. Maybe I didn't need to reserve them, really. I certainly wouldn't mind if the pictures got used in entries as well as in the quiz.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 26 September 2009, 17:49:35
Pictures that are only used in a general representative way definitely can be in an entry as well. The Loremistress Hildula Hauntwell’s pic (it's actually presented as her quiz) on the other hand could most likely only be used in an entry about her, but then again, somebody could do an entry about her :)

[Edit] Besides, Quellion's pic #504 (the Domos) wasn't used in the main entry yet, but surely fits, so we can integrate that one right away on the site as well, eh? ;)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Shabakuk Zeborius Anfang on 26 September 2009, 19:24:07
Yes, Quellion's picture would fit the Domovidgies well! Since we don't know whether they exist, the caption should maybe make clear that it's not a portrait of a Domo, but an artist's impression of what they might look like.

And I'll think about that Hildula Hauntwell entry.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Deklitch Hardin on 05 October 2009, 07:51:00
Hopefully, my entry for the Drop Bears will be up for review by the end of the week.

I would like to reserve Koldar #2 - 'Fallen Hero' as an example of a poor unfortunate soul who fell victim to one of these beasties.

Edit: Of course, if someone else has a better use for it than this, I'd be happy to defer it to them.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 06 October 2009, 02:32:31
Well, it's not very representative of the beast as such, but as the picture hasn't been used for ages, it might as well be used there. I guess Curgan planned to use it somewhere, but as we haven't heard a concrete idea about it since years, it's definitely something that can be grabbed. Should a better opportunity arise to let a hero die in the snow, we might move it there eventually, though.

Could I reserve Ingeborg 14, 31, and maybe 16 for my Dunraich of Thalambath (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,13828.msg172373.html#msg172373) entry? They would be examples of the territory (with 14/31 being the general desert area and 16 being the Lands of Pain).

I found the perfect picture of my famed Injerin explorer Saryas Kelweather. For those of you who have read my entries, Saryas was one of the first explorers of the Mists region, discovered the evidence of the Lost Ones, was one of the first outsiders to wear the Mask of the Tree Cousin and is a Kaaer friend.

May I use the picture in the Lost Ones entry (http://www.santharia.com/people/lost_ones.htm), as Saryas was integral to the discovery of the Lost Ones? The caption could read "Saryas Kelweather, famed Injerin elf explorer of the northern reaches of Caaehl'heroth, and researcher of the Lost Ones druid sect."

"Faugar's #6 elven cleric" (http://stuff.santharia.com/faugar/magicalempire/elfcleric2b.jpg)

I have planned a full People entry for Saryas and would use the picture there also.  :thumbup:

So, I've been digging up some graves (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,12698.msg152275.html#msg152275)
They were all fairly shallow, but you never know what sort of things you're going to find instead of corpses!

I this case, I found this wonderful piece by the Bard that was supposed to have been used but wasn't (I checked). If it's not too remiss of me, I'd like to use this for a place up in Northern Sarvonia, either an entry on the Shaddhar mountains or as part of the entry on Raevalem. I'm not sure which yet.

I would hate to see this picture go to waste.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Bard Judith on 08 April 2010, 09:48:20
Um.  I was supposed to write up Greleur Heights to go with that picture.   (abashedly digs feet into carpet, shuffles, tries to meet Valan's eyes)   I have a more than sneaking suspicion (actually a suspicion that is clomping around my head rather like Tharoc in the mornings) that the proposed place entry did not get done....

Tisn't all that wonderful (pre-tablet days) but if you like it you may certainly use it.  I suppose my early claim (Oct 2008) has definitely expired, as, probably, has my enthusiasm/ideas for Greleur.   Thank you for your necroarcheology!

Post by: Valan Nonesuch on 08 April 2010, 09:50:48
As I said, I looked to make sure nothing had been started or put on the site. But it is quite a wonderful picture and I'd be happy to use it Bard, so thank you for the permission. I'll make sure it doesn't go to waste. Though I didn't mean to attempt any sort of guilt trip (I'm the least qualified person to do so). Off to Raevalem it goes!

Azhira, Aden is still a part of Caael'heroth :p. Keep in mind that the entry that it is going to get used in describes a walled penal colony. And I've got a developer to see about drakes.

Aden is going to be... savage I think.

Since the spear Seeker has made looks just like the spear used in two previous Remusian Pics, could we not use the Seeker #5 to illustrate the Spear in the weapons section of the Remusian entry as is?  Maybe name it in the resource thread, so if someone wanted to do an indepth entry on either Remusian spears, or Ice Tribe Weapons, it could be used again.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Valan Nonesuch on 15 April 2010, 00:43:46
Seeker's marvelous dagger illustration seems to suit the entry on the Zarathian Dagger (http://santharia.com/weapons/zarathian_dagger.htm) particularly with the little bit of ornamentation, it could be the specialized version of the training dagger, or one made by one of their neighbours?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Seeker on 15 April 2010, 04:34:22
Actually Valan I have different plans brewing in my head for that Zarathian number. For sure that pic needs a very ornamental intricate dagger.  So I will eventually do that one from scratch (unless someone else gets to it first)

I don't like seeing weapon images go to waste! :grin: Tell me when you do, I've got a jambiya scabbard that might be a useful reference if you're going to draw it along with the weapon.


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 20 April 2010, 05:13:13
The spear picture can definitely be added to the Remusian entry, yup.  :thumbup:

BTW: The dagger is definitely a curved dagger, thus looks a bit oriental, so might fit to similar cultures in Caelereth. Might even be something for the Karii assassins. Anyway, a great picture that could use its entry! :D

Also I thought we have that super-overview on weapons (http://www.santharia.com/weapons/weapons.htm), which branches off to the other overview pages. Just saw that we have e.g. more than 3 pics already for the spears, so we can add a representative polearm picture on this page already. - With the Sliverphial, the Curved Dagger and the Blood Thirst we could also already put up a representative picture for Knives and Daggers... So slowly put surely we'll complete the graphical side there as well! :)

A caption of something like "Artyrhón fishers on the waters of Eight Winds Bay struggling against the winds and currents of the waters." might be appropriate ... or something else that would be better

She was reserved.  I'm pretty sure.

Pidandra was the only female Lanrul of the Remusian people.  She ruled for approximately 150 days, thus her title Pidandra of 150 Days.  She was assassinated.  Her reign was short, but she started some changes that actually benefitted the Remusians.

Well, the picture isn't flagged and I did not find anything the last five pages back, but, what about a deal?

Pidandra sounds to be a terribly interesting person.. a woman in male dominated society!  :evil:
I write Pidandra and Deci writes something Nybelmarian for me, like Imsadi (Kayrrhem princess)? Don't know though, if Fox is interested in her also, as she wanted to do her tribe revision.

*Oh no, now I got myself into something again...*

I'd love for you to write a Pidandra entry.   :D

As much as I love the pic, and as much as I'm pretty sure I reserved it, on contemplation, since I haven't done anything with it, and since it is you, I'll relinquish any claim on it in favour of you. :)

Ok, fine! :)

Then let me put up at least part of that Remusian Man stuff, no wait, that was something else... then you tell me more about her. If I'm in the same mood next week as today, then this entry is quickly done...

I believe that Shiel II #29 is being used by Master Anfang in his entry on the witch with the eight legged hut, though I could be wrong there.

That is Hildula Hautwell, yes, :) we are speaking of #46 - Jyotsana

I think Dek is merely making sure that Hildula doesn't get used elsewhere by accident, rather than commenting on the exchange between yourself and Altario

Ah, I see!

Art, I would like to reserve for some time Sheil's #31 - Low Gravity Creature
As I would like to revamp the Kivoosh, I thought I could link it somehow to it, maybe it has to do something with the moon also, not sure yet. I need to have some nice dreams first to be sure, what it is.

Edit: I just realised, that I'm mod here! Took the Hildula/Koma pic out, Dek!

Yes, Valan was correct ... my apologies for not being clearer :)

Just to prove I hadn't gone insane (subjective, I know), I spent the last two days reading my 2000+ posts to find where I had asked to reserve the pic.  It was here (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,12356.msg146731.html#msg146731).  Though, I suppose reading 2000 posts to find the one that proved me right COULD be considered insane, heh.

But, like I said, I relinquish the rights to Talia.

May I reserve the picture "Uhr" by Sheil, please? #11 (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,11417.msg133121.html#msg133121)


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 17 September 2011, 14:53:48
Yep, I guess that would be fine, Shabakuk... Where would you like to use that one?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Shabakuk Zeborius Anfang on 17 September 2011, 18:05:10
I thought I might use the picture in the People entry on Witches. Actually, the idea came from yourself, Arti:

Rumours might exist that witches with a suspiciously long life-span are actually travelling the Web (through time and space!), but would never reveal that secret. A lot of mystery could go on in this regard, and the good thing is that we could just touch on it, without going into much detail, and thus keep it open and fascinating what witches are capable of...

I thought the picture could illustrate the idea of travelling through time and peeking into other worlds.

Yep, good thought! It looked difficult to get an idea on how to integrate this one, but it looks like we've got something there :)

The resources offered are meant for entries on the site, Elron, not Forum portraits!

i thought of that right after loading took it off.

I'm wondering whether Seeker #2 and/or #3 could be used in The Heaths of Eph'denn (http://www.santharia.com/places/ephdenn_heaths.htm) entry by Azhira?


Title: Re: Reserving Santharian Resources
Post by: Artimidor Federkiel on 17 February 2012, 04:44:25
Only saw this suggestion now that I'm adding some stuff to Seeker's and Judy's resources...

Well, I would say this should work pretty well indeed! So I will see to put one of the pics in the entry!

Ok I just saw this! That pic for Eph'denn is very appropriate and lovely! Thanks Seeker, and kudos to Dek for suggesting it.

I hate being away, I miss these things.  :)
