I've sent Mira a PM to check again if what is in the entry now doesn't contradict Nybelmarian concepts. So I basically need a rough content check here before we deal with getting the entry in proper shape. Because I fear there's a lot to adjust to proper English here... I'd be happy to do that, though checking if the content fits to Nybelmar is the condition to do the detailed work of refining the entry.

 Don't feel you have to do that all yourself, Sage:  I also would be willing to do a grammar/phrasing/vocabulary edit, but like you what I cannot/will not do is check for content.   

If the entry gets approved content-wise, please let me know and I'll be happy to Judicize it thoroughly.

Well I would help you do that.... well as much as I can...

About the Nybelmar I have read everything what I have found and about the Venlaken Enclave... On the basis of that I have changed my entry to fit the conditions of Nybelmar....

Well, I think Mira should take the look on the location which I have put the forest:
Quote
On the west-central part of the continent Nybelmar south of the Venlaken Enclave

This is the only think which makes me "worry"...

Instead of quoting the whole entry and marking my objections, i'll list them here in order of appearance.

1) Whenever you make changes to an entry, please colour them so we can find them more easilly.

2) Your description of why the medriatean cave is dangerous defeats tself in it's complexity. Either you didn't think of checking whether that is even possible in this world, or you did, and just stated it incomprehensibly. Either way, it clashes with your statement people used to mine there.

3) People. This is where we get stuck, for me. You're placing a trie of unspecified race (Human? Elf? Orc?) in this area, while for the love of me i'd never settle, if i were them, and fail to incorporate anything already written on the history of Nybelmar and the local region. While the entry itself is workable. you will be making some very drastic changes to the history of the forest and it's inhabitants for this swamp to float. (no pun intended, of course ;))

4)... well, thats actually it. #3 is my main, bahimut-sized concern, all the rest we can sort out later, since many of the small things are connected to the history of the place.

5) There's no gold to be found there. (You hinted at the swamp being a source of gold in times past, but no can do.

I think that is not easily to answer, it depends on the there or in the vicinity living tribes. Maybe check, which tribes live there and if they would cooperated together or rather not.

Hostory, history! Wait, let me say that one more time; HISTORY.

Read up on what happened in the past with the peopl of Nybelmar; use the 'history' tab in the COmpendium and work your way though the East and West Nybelmar tables. Then you can see what races went where, and what happened to them.

I have made several changes on my entry, why I cannot put some gold in my entry is a question for me?

-So Mira I know it seems a little bit strict from me, but I await a answer on this question...

(Please don't take it as a provocation....you know me I just want a good answer... grin)

Because of the nature of swamps Perab. A swamp is usually at the low point in the land, so water will drain there accordingly. This softens the soil and provides a place for things to decompose, which richens the soil, causing plants to grow there abundantly. Unfortunately, this type of region is not conducive to the kind of rocks that gold is usually found in. Gold is found in hard rocks. When it is panned in rivers, it's because the water flow has erroded the flakes of gold and carried them into the river and this has caused them to fuse into larger nuggets.
In a swamp the flow of water can be so slow that it approaches being stangnant, with little or no movement.

So. To sum it up.
Swamps: Lots of rich soil and water, few rocks.

Gold: Needs rocks or a quickly moving source of water that is arriving from a gold-bearing source.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
