Fire/ smoke signals have lots of possibilities towers in various places made at different times by different people instance where they were lit etc. We could also have mage generated fire signals different colors could mean different things you could communicate specific messages over long distance, sort of a Santharian telegram. Their could also be codes used for battle, though not covert like a runner it would be much quicker and it could be changed frequently so they don't know what you are up to.  :)

Hot air rising could be useful for somethings Anapagans might use it to turn a wheel for some device. But I see problems developing if we have hot air balloons. We could end up with dirigible service from Nybelmar to Sarvonia   :(

Hi Haven't been here in a while how are thins going in Caelereth these days?

I'll take a look sometime at whats bean going on in the drifting woods before I continue the Arefi.

I'm also in the mood to draw plants. I might just draw random stuff and see what it inspires.  :)

The first picture could be used for an entry that relates to royalty. Since purple is associated with royalty and so is gold. As for why they would have gold trees. There could be dozens of reasons ranging from historical and cultural to the king likes pictures of trees.

Since your working on pain killers I figured I'd mention i'm working on a plant that produces a powerful narcotic called kitocran


letting you know so you could include it in your list and offer me some input on it.  cool

Made some more edits to this plant orange.

Main reason I did was I saw Kelancey's thread on on pain killers and I wanted his input on the narcotic my plant produces kitocran.

 azn Maybe as I've suggested it it give women to much power but I like the  idea of a banishment period where a young man has to survive on his own.


I think your right about the mormon wives. If the ice tribes practice polygyny it would be a good way to keep multiple wives in line.

As for whether or not they believe in goddesses and what they are like after looking over a list of Norse Gods and Goddesses and skimming the goddesses mentioned there I would say the ice tribes should definitely have goddesses and they should not be wimpy ones.

Nechya (Goddess of the Night) Would be female, the only true female goddess. Due to their lack of respect for females, I would think that the Ice Tribes would do very little at night, staying inside whatever shelter was available to them, distrusting the night and moon.

Do the Icelands have extended periods of night like earths poles?

How about a young man who is engaged having to go out for an extended period of time in winter while their is a long night.

This would prove to her father he is worthy of her daughter that he can handle her.

He would have to face the elements with only things he could carry. He would be allowed one set of clothes and a knife of his own making. Other things allowed more clothes, carrying sacs, weapons, tools must be provided by his fiance.Bring food on start of trip is forbidden. Nechya would see what his fiance had made and have mercy on him.

Before the period of exile his future mother in law would prepare a great feast if she like him, if she didn't he would be lucky to get bread and water. He would then leave for a period he would have to stay gone long enough and bring back trophies of his exile to prove he was worthy. If the future father in law didn't like him devilish. He would actively hunt him. Other members of her family or rival males might hunt him as well. The latter would be more common if it was an arranged marriage and she was interested in another man.

If he survived they would be wed.

You are limiting yourself by having your nibs made out of only metal. You should reed about pen nibs

Snow in Iowa. more then in recent years we've had years with more thou a lot more.

last year it was fall weather till January then we got winter. Midwest weather is always fickle.

Climate alarmists go back and forth from global cooling to global warming sometime in the feature they will switch back to global cooling again. Probably switching a few times before the century is thru I just hope Al gore lives long enough to warn us of the impending global cooling crisis, so I can see the reaction when someone asks him about his change in position :)

as for global warming the big bright furnace in the sky causes it.

her is a poem about climate change.

We’re Friends of the Pleistocene; damn little ice we’ve seen;

Listen and we’ll tell you why:

The glaciers retreated, the lakes are depleted,

The temperature’s risen too high.


We’ve till and we’ve gravel, our problems unravel,

When stones oriented we see.

We’ve eskers and kames and various names

To apply to the glacial debris.


We’ve loess and we’ve soils which add to our toils,

We’ve lakes and we’ve peat bogs to bore.

With Quercus and Fagus and Pinus to plague us,

The pollen we cannot ignore.


So we’re Friends of the Pleistocene, where geology’s nice and clean.

Granites and faults we decry.

Instead of petrology, on carbon chronology

And climatic change we rely.

sounds like a water deer

Subspecies would definitely be to modern of a term.

You can devide things into subspecies or even infraspecies you just have to describe them in mid evil terms

I'll use  equines as an example example easier then rats.

They would be able to tell zebra from horses two different species of equines

a draft horse from a pony

and those that knew more about horses a Clydesdale from  Belgian

But they would describe them in something much closer to laymen's terms rather than scientific.

xerampelinae deicida walks in to join in the merriments, wishing to congradulate Irid. To many people surround her. Walks over to the banquet table and starts to graze while making idle chat.
14  Santharian World Development / The Santharian Bestiary / Re: The Rat / All Continents / Rodents on: 06 December 2007, 02:16:18
Do a search of the site so you can incorporate information from entries other then rat ones. There are several animals that have rats as part of their diet for example. You should also be able to find some information you could summarize in a mythology section.

How about using feldspars they make up 60 percent of the Earths crust.
