Everyone, please help me welcome the newest addition to the Santharian Dream: Lucas Tyrone Sanner was born yesterday at 5:30PM! What he lacks in experience he more than makes up for with his exuberance.
If I can ever figure out how to upload photos, I will certainly do so!
Actually, Talia, I would appreciate your welcome "tampering" with this entry. I seem to be having a lot of trouble with it. You're absolutely correct that I'm sticking too closely to what I can find on Wiki, but I'm having a writer's block on how to make it unique to Caelereth.
Here are some ideas I've come up with thus far, to see if you like these or not: Pulverized alik'ran root dissolved in vitrether could help with problems related to women's monthly courses. Mallowdrop sap mixed into vitrether will help with both sore throat and stomach ache. Trinity herb leaves can be crushed and added to vitrether to enhance the sweetness of it and add to the sedating property of ether, to soothe an uneasy mind. Nightshade tincture added to vitrether helps with spasmodic illnesses such as strangling disease and vomiting, and help a heartache. (Please forgive the promotion of my own bush. )
As for the lore, I thought it could maybe be used by the Sanhoirhim as a food preservative when going out to sea? That way, when they were out at sea and didn't need to preserve any more dry rations, then they could drink any remaining vitrether as an alternative to alcohol! Just a thought.
Welcome back to the Dream, Snakebearer! You are certainly a welcome addition to the Dev team. Forgive my intrusiveness, but...do you do anatomical illustrations? Heehee! Pardon my selfishness. I'm looking for help with my masterwork, my Santharian master's thesis if you will permit.
You are absolutely correct, as always, Talia. I didn't want to presume, but I would love it if our resident Masterbard has time and energy enough to ply her artistic skill to the body parts! I hope she may, I hope she might lend her prowess, that it may look right!
I can see this will clearly need anatomical illustrations. Since I am by no means an illustrator, can anyone suggest an artist I could commission to draw these body parts? Any suggestions would be most helpful!
Bard Judith, I would *love* your help resurrecting the past threads of body parts and muscles. I found them in the Miscellaneous forum, now I just need to blow the dust off of them and get going making them concise and informative. I'm hoping to make them an interesting read, if that's possible to do with an atlas of anatomy.
First, thank you to Arti and all the development team for this opportunity. I am humbled by your generosity and grateful for your vote of confidence.
Thank you as well to Athvario, Coren and Shabakuk for your kind words. I am at a loss as to how to acknowledge your support, so I hope that my heartfelt "thank you" will approach the sentiment I feel for you.
Of course, my first question is, what will I write about? Are there any areas that I could contribute to? Any suggestions would be most welcome.
EDIT: What about an entry naming the body parts? The existing entry on this site lists names for the fingers in different regions of Caelereth, but doesn't address the rest of the body parts. Could I propose to do something like an almanac of the human anatomy? (Green's Anatomy? Sorry, dorky humor.)
Talia, I added some explanations yesterday in yellow, saying that lesrin'mar may be hard to one by. I also described 'ether parties' as a common way for people of lower castes to escape their daily woes.
How does this look now? I'm not sure that I satisfied all your comments with these edits...
