Whoops... ok, scratch that, but can I atleast do the Ria?

Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

We're easing things up a bit in this regard in the future - but yes, the Ria would be a challenge to try, as are most Places entries. And as I see you plan to do more in this context, Drúadan, I'd say yes, give it a try.

Thanks, I'll work on it during the next week and have it up soon.

@Takór: Don't know if Judy still wants to do Klinsor, I guess she reserved it already quiiiiite a while ago (as she also made game descriptions there, so there's material!). I can mark Gean for Ravenport, ok Gean?

@Mira: Auturian Woods could use a major update, indeed - entry is filled with holes as of yet. If you'd like to, yup, you're invited!  grin

I don't know if Gean is around at the moment, but I know for sure that he wants to do Ravenport as his "masterwork" and has put already some thoughts or work in it.

Artimidor,  How detailed do you want these places mini descriptions to be?  What kind of info needs to be in them, and is there some info already in various threads throughout the forums?  Let me know if i can help... maybe the Tolonian Heath, or the Caeytharin Mountains.
Thanks!

Mini descriptions are made in order to provide a basis for someone else to develop an entry. You could say that such a mini description equals the Overview part of a regular entry, mentioning the most important things you would read about in a full entry.

Examples of mini descriptions you can find at the Manthrian map. Click on the coloured texts and you'll see the mini-descriptions to the right (some descriptions are larger, especially if there's an entry already). Places that don't have a description as of yet are not coloured. If you have ideas on a location or two, feel free to post, Hylphán! :)

Hello, Ashlea!

Generally we prefer newcomers (and I see this is your first post ever, at least on the development board) to introduce themselves in the appropriate forum, give a bit of history, and politely request an area to work on.

I'm glad you are interested in place development - we can always use more town builders - but how about stepping on over to the Newcomers' Forum and saying hello first?  We like to know who we might be working with, and what their skills and abilities are.   

At this point Celessra is not 'taken', but apprentice developers don't usually start off with places because of the complexity of the template: you need to be familiar with the area's history, fauna and flora, geography and natural resources, the various tribes in the region, and so on.  It's very daunting for newcomers to do right, and in the process of editing, integrating critique and comments, and rewriting, many simply give up and leave an unfinished mangle on the boards - not something anyone is happy with!   

However, do come introduce yourself properly, give us a brief bio and let us know how long you've been familiarizing yourself with Santharia, and what you had in mind.  We're always happy to provide a plate of Kao-kao Dochnut cookies and some drinks for the wanderer within our gates!

Regards from the bard,
Judith

Yeah, Ashlea, I pretty much wanted to post the same thing as Judy did - a Places entry requires for example that you know the tribe behind that town very well and some key things about history etc. I don't know what your ideas are in this respect and how much you know Santharia already, and judging from the fact that this was your first post, I would say perhaps starting a tad smaller would be recommended...

Just wondering Arti, should Hawkeye Quarry be in the plan.  It's in Mantharia, west of Ciosa, I think.  I think somebody started it ages ago, but haven't been here for years.

I believe, Mannix, that the Masterplan is only for those entries that are most important to the region. While I can't say I've read the Hawkeye entry attempt you mentioned, I do not think it is a defining spot in manthria. This plan is for tribes of the region, big places like the Auturian woods Mira is doing, and other important or fairl important spots. If you look at the detailed manthrian map, you'll notice that there are a LOT of gray names; places that have never been detailed or mentioned. We obviously don't have all of them here, and I suspect Hawkeye quarry is just another example of that type of scenario.

I leasy I'm pretty sure all that is true. :D
