Looks scrumptious!

Oh, Alexandre, I'm sorry.  I wasn't trying to confuse you, or tell you what you should or shouldn`t do.  I  just wanted to caution you against taking on too big a bite for your first project.  Occasionally an ambitious or enthusiastic newbie (and some of us older developers, too!) will jump in a little too deep, too soon and then realize that the scope of the project is beyond them, get discouraged and have trouble finishing it.   I didn`t want that to happen to you.  I like your intelligent writing style and I can`t wait to see what you do with the Ash`mari!

I'd suggest you start with the Vir'tog, since the historical precedent for that is already in the Kuglimz belief entry.  We can always expand upon the original information later on.  I'm not trying to shut you down here, but unless you narrow your focus a little, you may find the entry starting to get unmanageably large and you might begin to feel overwhelmed.

I think the name Dirg'mari is fine.  thumbup  I just thought I'd mention that little idiosyncrasy of the language so you could start with the right set of rules, especially when you are thinking of names for people and places.   It always helps to know these little details. 

Hope this helps.   Let me know if you have any questions.

Perhaps a Santhworld adventure starring Reve'lor collecting animals for his menagerie or Eleanna Kalrinwenens, the gnome botanist collecting specimens?

I mean, consider all the monsters up there already...apes that throw exploding poop at you, spine wyrms, and the Mists themselves, among others.

And there are some lovely illustrations already, too.

Actually, due to Kuglimz grammatical structure, Dirg'mari would translate as "wolf leader" not "leader wolf". Our grammar structure, the reverse of the Southern pattern is.

A nit-picky point it is, but perhaps the Ash'mari would similarly speak?  Admit it we Kuglimz would prefer not to, but distantly related to us they are. :-)

Okay, brief intro:


A Losh'Oc war song, often sung when they are going into battle with a non-orcen foe.  Even without a working knowledge of Kh'omchr'om, the sight and sound of several hundred bloodthirsty orcs enthusiastically roaring this out whilst marching towards the enemy is...well, intimidating, to say the least.

Provided by the bard F'ash, who learned it during his time as a captive of the Losh'Oc orcs.

I think "Stone Eater" is kind of a cool clan name.  So then you'd have the Fanged Warrior of the Stone Eater clan, or M'ruk'zuck of Ph'ragh'ong.  An "epic" name, as my children would say. thumbup

I love coming up with names for things and people! 

 I'm a bit handicapped by not knowing a few details such as gender, age, magical ability, or inclination, but here are some traditional style orcish names and approximate translations:

M'ruk'zuck--translates as "fanged warrior"

Ph'ragh'goruck-- " rock [like] shield bearer" --implies determination, courage and fortitude.  Could be shorted to "Ph'ruck" (yes, I CAN hear all you evil-minded little Tharian humans sniggering! ) to his (her?) close associates, much like "Tom" for Thomas or "Nick" for Nicholas.

Ashz'haz--"noble guardian"


Losh'uon--"true seer",  "visionary"  or "prophet" -good name for a shaman, for instance.

Khq'al'on-"distance fighter" (ie, fights from a distance with magic rather than traditional orcish weapons.)

Although there is no clear definition for Volkek-Oshra, I would imagine it would be something like "magic-using orc" or "orcen mage".  With that in mind as a definition, you could possibly build a name off of that, like, say,

Khq'olkek or Khq'oshra--one who fights with magic


Any of these strike your fancy, Shabakuk?

I'd love to hear more of your ideas, Alex. As the main Kuglimz developer, I also have a strong interest and foothold in that area.  You'll probably want to look at some of the Kuglimz traditions to get an idea of where the Ashmari are coming from as well, so if you have any questions, feel free to throw them in my direction.  We barbarians must stick together against all those soft Southerners, after all.

I would have welcomed you sooner, but I am still catching up after an extended absence due to an unreliable internet connection. I will keep an eye out for your work in the next little while.  And welcome!

A bit of thread necromancy...

Did this song (the lyrics, not the recording) make it into the Compendium?  I couldn't actually find it in our music collection along with Z'rovya H'rok and the translated orc love song I wrote.  I know the recording wasn't siteworthy (it was more for fun and to give an idea or the way it would sound)  but the lyrics ought to be there.

Good quiz!  I scored in the Novice range as well.

I think it's breathtakingly beautiful.

This is awesome!  And mouthwatering!

Aura +1 from me!

He's great!  I love the expression.

Two minor nitpicks--would he have so much hair?  By middle age, most of them have lost their hair completely.  Does he wear a wig?  (Now that would be funny.)

There is something a little odd about his left cheek.  I think the roundness needs to be higher on his face, he looks a little lopsided.  


But the technical details are beautifully realized here!

Aura + 1 from me!

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canadians amongst us!   And for the rest of you who don't celebrate this holiday, just have a great weekend!
