augh, seem to have got a bit stuck in writing this herder's festival. basically, I need to know when it is, but
a) there doesn't seem to be much of a unified calendar for Nybelmar. is it ok to use Tharian terms for the months or would that just be all wrong?
b) I kind of need it to be in a fairly lush season for the area - I'm assuming Nybelmarian plainslands would have a rainy season in the summer/spring?

Sorry if I'm missing an obvious source of information, as I know I've a tendency to. ;)

I am not aware of a Nybelmarian Calendar.  I would suggest you go with the Santharian months in your first version and if someone from Nybelmar wants to correct you during the review they can.  But just between you and me I haven't seen too many Nybelmarians around consistently for quite some time.

Yeah, just use Santharian months for now. It was difficult enough to get the Santharian calendar details fixed... So while Nybelmarians have a different counting system for their years (and surely other month names as well) the focus primarily has to go to Santharian definitions by default if other concepts aren't developed yet.

Thanks guys! That clears things up nicely. Just wanted to be sure as its the kind of thing that'd be awkward to fix. ;)

Anything Nybelmar is complex, historical, deep and hard to wrap one's head around. So yeah. Stick to something relatively simple by comparison like Santharian.  cool

No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world without magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith. And that, I fear, for any reasoning, conscious being, would be the cruelest trick of all.

*clings desperately to Azhira's words*
it's true! It's all true!
I am nearly done  though, so hopefully we're winning. buck

Hello everyone!

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
