I am aware of what you have said am am fixing it :)  as i said before, i may never be done with them because i am indeed myself discovering new things about them. Baout the sketches: You'll have to ask Ryshan Lord, he said he'd do both the crimson isles and the isle of wrath.


***Look for these changes in my stories over the next few days***
-a complete and thourough description of the Rinath
-As well as Mode of Living and Family habits

I think the origin I have written explains them pretty well, and it could also fit the description of a "mythological origin." tell me what you think...By the way, i think i did provide a description of the Rinath. Here is the direct quote"Through his powers, they grew scales and fins, as well as webbed feet and gills for sustained breathing under water. So in truth the Rinath are little more than amphibious Humans."
I will add more as to society and family structure as i come up with new ideas (probably on my lunch break at work today)as well as mode of living and habits (which i also think i put in there; Quote:"The First Kingdom was humble, they lived in an underwater cave of the isles. They collected kelp and other such weeds and plants of the sea to live on, until they learned to cultivate their new plants, and farm them underwater. Fish they used as their primary meat, and eventually formed schools of them into herds, training dolphins and other intelligent sea mammals as "sheep dogs." And thus the kingdom grew from 250 to 500, and that grew to 1000 over many years, until the whole underwater world of the crimson isles became populated by them. Vast and glorious underground cities were built into the islands, rivaled by that of only the dwarves.
        Now in the present, many kingdoms of the Rinath exist along coastlines of isles and continents, all underground. Their numbers are unknown, but they have recently begun trade with "uplanders" as they call surface dwellers. They trade in goods, clothing, gold and their craftsmen ship. They get along with elves especially, because elves were the first to accept them as friends.
        They have little magic, accept to save drowning people by using a part of their life-force to make the person a Rinath. This was also a gift from the mage.
their society is very similar to human society, though few have seen their cities, and they have the attributes of most of the races of Santharia. They are a peace loving group, but in times of peril when they must protect their, none are more fierce in combat.") If this does not suffice I will indeed detail it to the last "t" :)

CONCERNING NOSTRAFUS:

I will also get that done and sent in for you...i am trying to get his story intertwined into santharian history...


Thank you for your feedback it was most resourceful and enlightening!

Tell me what you think of my two updates on both Nostrafus and the Rinath. I love the criticism

12  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / The Rinathian Report: A Hidden Society on: 11 January 2001, 18:51:00
**This is the true report of them, and quite contrary to the last one**

       The Rinath were created by a kind hearted mage at the end of the War of Wrath, by a mage of the same name.

       A ship was sinking near his home in the crimson isles (Name used by permission, thanks Ryshan Lord). He could hear it's 250 Human passengers cries in for help, and he immediately felt pity in his heart. He summoned his very life force to save these people, and to them he altered their bodies and gave his essence to them. Through his powers, they grew scales fins on thier arms, as well as webbed feet and gills for sustained breathing under water. Another atribute is a second set of eyelids which deploys when they are underwater for enhanced vision. So in truth the Rinath are little more than amphibious Humans.

     The ship went down, but the startled "newborn" race found that they could breath under water, as well as swim as fast as any dolphin. They swam around in the water playfully, utterly delighted at their newfound abilities.

       Then, as if the wind itself called them, a voice came into their minds: "come to me oh my children, for my time is short."

       Immediately they all swam toward the island, whether it be by instinct or design, I know not. They arrived to find the mage sitting against a tree near the shore.

       In his dying words he said unto them: "I have soared your lives by altering your form. Whether it be a sin against the gods I shall soon find out. My words to you my children are do not trust those who were once your brethren completely, for they will surely fear you. And as in most humans with fear comes hatred. Live your lives in peace with all you meet."  

       And with that he died.

       Taking to heart the wizards words one brave male stepped forward and said unto them "Brothers and Sisters, his words are ever true, we must hide ourselves from they who were once our kin, for their hearts are the same as ours were. We of the Rinath" (from then on calling themselves that without knowing why) "shall have to hide from the rest of the world."

       The others agreed and elected this new leader to be their King (he was in fact the captain of the ship). Claudius the Wise he was named, first king of the Rinath, and thus their race was born.

        The First Kingdom was humble, they lived in an underwater cave of the isles. They collected kelp and other such weeds and plants of the sea to live on, until they learned to cultivate their new plants, and farm them underwater. Fish they used as their primary meat, and eventually formed schools of them into herds, training dolphins and other intelligent sea mammals as "sheep dogs." And thus the kingdom grew from 250 to 500, and that grew to 1000 over many years, until the whole underwater world of the crimson isles became populated by them. Vast and glorious underground cities were built into the islands, rivaled by that of only the dwarves.

       To this day the communities are fashioned after those of old. They are built largely in submerged seacaves, or tunneled  into the continental shelves. Ther cities, towns and villages are circular, the housing is on the outer layer of the circle, market places, plazas, inns, and shops are built toward in the middle layer, and at the very the center is the Government Building, in which the king, or local government conducts the business of the community.

      The society is indeed complex. The King ad his officials have the final say in all matters related to governance, although the people are invited to vote on any matters of state.  Thier cheif source of food is the kelp beds the grow and other plantlife they farm, as well as large herds of various fish that they tend to.

       Families are important, and almost clannish. One may pay Homage to a King or city official, but to earn respect for one's family is the first priority in Rinathian Life. Many in fact live with thier parents until they have children of thier own, and even then they live in the same area. Entire neighborhoods may consist of one family, and a marriage to another important family gains prestige in Rinathian Circles. In major families, artisans, craftsmen, fishermen, heardmen farmers, labourers, and other tradesmen all work directly for thier family, or hire out to build the family funds.

       Rinathian artwork and craftsmen ship is indeed unique. Ther artwork, or so it is said reflects the very essence of life, each detail is an emotion or feeling. All Rinathian fineries are hand crafted, from thier durable fabric (they call steel-silk), to thier tapestries and statues. Thses they hve many of, and will use these as goods to trade with other Rinathian kingdoms or cities.

  They have little magic, accept to save drowning people by using a part of their life-force to make the person a Rinath. This was also a gift from the mage.
Their society is very similar to human society, though few have seen their cities, and they have the attributes of most of the races of Santharia. They are a peace loving group, but in times of peril when they must protect their homes, none are more fierce in combat.


       Now in the present, many kingdoms of the Rinath exist along coastlines of isles and continents, all underground. Their numbers are unknown, but they have recently begun trade with "uplanders" as they call surface dwellers. They trade in foods, clothing, gold and their craftsmen ship. They get along with elves especially, because elves were the first to accept them as friends.

13  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / On to The Rinath on: 11 January 2001, 17:48:00
I am moving on to the rinath in my writings, so right now Nostrafus is on the back burner, expect more on him in the future though!

14  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / The Isle of Wrath: Kingdom of Nostrafus on: 11 January 2001, 17:46:00
A map has recently been recovered from the hands of a dead follower of Nostrafus, which was saved from destruction by swift swordsmanship and skill. The Description is as follows:
the isle is 25 miles long and 40 miles in width.
  The Isle itslef is given the name "The Isle of Wrath". Around the whole of the isle lies a wall black as night, and from it emits a dark inpenatrable mist which makes the isle invisible to any non follower seeking it. When the wall is visible, many corpses are seen hanging from it some recently deceased, some have been there for ages. It is justly labeled "The Gate of Sorrow", for at it's center lies a huge blac water gate, which can only be opened by magical means. The isle itself is "C" shaped, forming a natural harbor which is labled "The Bay of Wrath." It's population comes from four major points:three ports and the City of Death,where Nostrafus sits on his throne.
The main, and centermost port is called Port of Dispair, and it spans three miles along the bay. the other two are only 1 mile, one at each tip of the "c." The westernmost of these is called ShanteTown, and the other is Neamon's Tomb.
From the bay the isle it'self sans outward, revealing a twisted and blackened mountain rich in watersources. various breeding pens and farmlands could be seen, although they are nameless. Upon the top of the mountain lies The City of Death. It is indeed a great city, spanning a long way down the mountain (at least 5 or six miles around). Atop the monutain itself lies "The Citadel of Nostrafus," where his throne sits. The citadel is large and black, and has many spires. it would cost many lives to try and take that citadel by all accounts.  

15  Santharian World Development / Miscellaneous / Nostrafus's Tale is Updated! on: 11 January 2001, 17:36:00
I have recently updated the story of nostrafus. It is of course far from over but it is starting to unfold into something i didn't expect. i'm going to start linking him to ancient santharia soon, and how he came to be on his misty isle
