You are such a great writer, it is a shame that you larbouring alone in these halls. I wished you were part when the Santharian Dream was flowering.

I have read the Politics section and it is great. There were a lot of words I only guessed what they mean from the context. ;)

Good work! I like it! :)

That will be a Coren-lengthy entry! ;)

I didn't get far (including Seller's Quater'), found one typo

New-Santhala is formally divided into a number of districts, each uniquely identifiable, with their own traditions and quirks. Whilst they’re not all officially designated, for example the Rafters is classified simply as a residential zone included under the jurisdiction of the Mayor of the Banner Districts, any New-Santhalan knows that the Rafters is a very different place to the rest of the Banner Districts. Each officially recognized district is administrated by an aappointed Mayor - or Lord Mayor for the Blue Towers, Parish and the Purple Fold districts - and an assembly of Councillors that are sourced from figures of local repute, who are invited to assembly by the Mayor. Other administrative offices are mentioned under the Government & Organisation section. The districts are as follows:

Otherwise, two words which I don't know, if you should use, both in Seller's Quater

Industry and chemical

You are writing as an contemporean person, so would you use the word industry? Isn't it too modern. As a non native speaker I don't know.

Chemical surely not, we only have 'alchemy' but you just need to find some words around the process, which of course did happen

Do you have a map of New Santhala, Art perhaps?

Hello Felsid,

What a big project! ;)

I might look at what you write now and then, just of of curiosity. But I'm not necessarily a big help, for I have forgotten most of the things I once knew. I've read the description (only) and it looks good, I like the way you write.
The only word I stumble over is 'byzantine'. It refers to an earthen town, but then, maybe it is meanwhile just a mere adjective .

Seagazer, I'm sorry you are working fairly alone here, that is really a pitty. I wished I had known you while I have been active.

There are many reasons why the Dream is slowing down, but one is surely that Artimdor misses often/sometimes .. is sensitiveness the word, or empathy? I don't think he does it on purpose.

Example? Shabakuk is coming back after a long time. The email notification lures me to the thread. And Coren too I supose.

Whom does he greet? Just Shaba, for Coren and I had quarrels with him in the past. Not a single "Hey, Talia, Coren, nice to see you too.." or something like this. Why should I spend my time on a site, where I'm not welcome? I miss Shaba, Coren, Altario and many others very much, but not so much that I will risk again getting hurt. I'm sorry.

That's a great idea and well written, Ankhi!

I need to read it more thoroughly the next days, I have just two remarks right now

- Women - any distinction?
- you write, that they look like normal people. And though they value more the spiritual virtues I wonder if they not attach great importance to the look of the body, if not people who look good and are beautiful are more revered than 'normal' looking ones. What if a member (or god) looses an arm or gets blind? Of course they will die, but what if there is a very ugly illness?

Looks good so far. I have some notes/ideas  somewhere about the common history, had planned a kind of wounded knee for the Darians, but I have to look for it, which is difficult right now. I've got a new computer (yeah!) and I'm in the progress of moving data..  and reorganising my chaos....
As soon as I find some time I tell you more. But go ahead!

Looks very interesting! Cool start.

Please mention where it lives in the overview!

No problem, Art, but as this burning stone issue is easily to solve I thought it's better it is correct... if any other magic is a bit off - there are only a few people who would see that and I'm not one of them ;)

Waiting for the next chapter!

That's an Easter Egg *laughs*, and that shortly before Christmas!

What a cute little story! I like that Stuff!

There is a problem there with the Burning Stones chips. I think it is not possible for Stuff to grind them in the mortar, they would go off when hit - or in the case of Black Stones, they wouldn't go off when falling down . Look here: http://www.santharia.com/resources/burning_stones.htm

I propose, that he mixes his two components and when finished, he turns over a bowl with chips of the lighter stuff (Light Stones) - which fall just a few handspans (this way not going off). When he throws the whole stuff from a high shelf on the cat, it may ignite. He can carefully mix it up though.

Quote
is that it is already established in the Maces Overview entry

As the paragraph in the overview is a kind of placeholder, it would not be a problem to change the name in the overview also. I don't think that Ruil or Seeker would have a problem with that.
12  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Re: The Morningstar on: 04 October 2014, 05:39:24
Nice first steps in our world! :)

I'm not much in weapons, so I can't comment on the weapon itself.

Two suggestion though:

Choose another name, not the earthen one (Morningstar -  As far as I know, the name derives from Venus, as this planet is the celestial body which sparkles most and is the brightest, the spiky appearance might have helped - we don't have it. Ava's Tears don't fit...). Santharize it.

What about:
Foiros' Wrath?
Injèrá's Ire?
 Something along this line?

I think it would be cool, to link the creation of the weapon to a distant historical or mythical event, maybe a time of need where the priest/smith prayed to Foiros and the god answered with the dream. Perhaps make it vague and just say, the priest lived in northern Santharia and invented the weapon during one of the times when the orcs and darkfriends came down from the Tandalas and threatend human culture.

Have a look at it, it's funny!
http://www.playbuzz.com/louisegriffiths10/which-fantasy-world-should-you-live-in

My result was - Middle Earth! :)

(Well, I think they don't have listed Santharia!)

No more time to read it, Rookie, but the idea is great! :)

Hello Lionhorse,

nice submission, that one - though I have to admit, that I have not read it all. I skimmed through the other comments also (especially Art's and Mina's and thought maybe the Aeruillin question could be solved this way (Aeruillin is not developed right now and a lot is undeveloped anyway, so it is difficult to place something there):

A question first: Who writes this report for the compendium? You, Lionhorse - who are you? Are you from Santharia (I don't know your RP char)

If you are writing from a Santharian point of view (if you are living here), then show us, where they are in Santharia. How far spread are they? (I would recommend to have them in the major cities only)

As Mina said - don‘t spread them too far. They may come from Aeruillin, but keep them - or what we know of them, in Santharia. Even if they are in Nybelmar - don‘t mention it. As Art said, they could be linked to Nehtor, have developed as special branch of his healer. If you don‘t like this, see further down.


I think they would have some dependencies, as Art suggested. An organisation of that size has to have some, kind of guild houses, where the individual pharmaceists can take refuge if they travel, where their superiors sit (they have a guild structure after all). You can e.g. have their biggest in Strata (the first place   they travelled to, when coming from Aeruillin). Have at least one in the great cities - New Santhala , Milkengrad, perhaps all the province capitals.

You have a lot of stuff in your submission, a Santharian citizen cannot know. But maybe there is a book/ books, where all those information is contained, books which are in the library of one of the depencies, books which the writer of this article was allowed to read. Or parts of them. So you can omit a few things or make them more vague.

A question: did you intent to let them all be educated in Aeruillin, and send out to do there work all over Aeruillin and Santharia? Or did they come from there, settle here and are now educated in Santharia, so that Santharian kids are able to get pharmaceits also? So that only their origin lay in Aeruillin? This way they could be fairly detached by now, after some of the wars and now they are a Santharian ,institution‘?

History is still missing, so we don‘t yet know, how long they practise. I‘m curious to what you are up in this respect.

One last question: Your pharmaceists are healers also? That‘s a bit misleading, for pharmacists nowadays research and prepare medicines, know how to use them. But they are no healers. Maybe you could not call them healers (who can mend a broken bone also), but only pharmaceists or a bit more Santharian (pharma.. Sounds so modern), maybe

Pharmoceists - farmosceists - farmosts .. Don‘t have good ideas today
Herbalists?

To not have just another ,healer‘ I would suggest to make them proficient only with healing through the application of herbs, tinctures etc, but that the people have to go to somebody else, it they have a broken limb or majors wounds. (e.g. after a battle).

Enough for today, I‘m not here anyway ;)

Hope it helps.
