As with Kyranian Development, I am seeking permission to engage in Blessed Sea Elf Development as my developmental focus outside the Santharian kingdom. :D

So far, I have contributed the following regarding the Blessed Sea Elves on the development side ...
- Eight Winds Bay
This was completed as my Masterwork and under the guidance/supervision of the Northern Sarvonian moderators.

My plan for the Blessed Sea Elves and their environment is to continue to make them unique ... not simply humans with pointy ears, nor elf species 1701, but a species unique in their own right, and one that both shapes and is shaped by the enviornment they find themselves in. They are described as being 'unusual' for an elf tribe ... and their housing is described as not being tree houses as elf housing is for other elf tribes, and these are areas I definitely intend to continue to develop. I intend to build on what has been done already by Drogo in my work on the Blessed Sea Elves and their enviornment.

So, my 'plan of attack' with regards to the Blessed Sea Elves will be as follows:
- Review what's already here (90%+ done)
- Note gaps in what's here (50% done)
- Update the Blessed Sea Elves Tribal entry; correcting mistakes in the entry, updating it for Eight Winds Bay information, filling in missing parts of the entry (15% done - offsite)
- Get some historical figures up on site: the elf who made the first crossing of the maelstrom, for example, further details on him are in the Eight Winds Bay entry (0% done)
- Do places entries for important cities/towns and geographic locations in the area. Silven/Adlin, the islands, perhaps the maelstrom. (0% done)
- Entries on the plants and animals in Eight Winds Bay entry - Trolog, Greater Trolog, Salt Reeds, Water Bird (15% done - Greater Trolog)
- Entries for the festivals described in BSE entry(0% done)
- Miscellaneous entries related to the region and BSEs (0% done)

I will, of course, put up details of proposed entries in the relevant forums for people to comment on/improve on/correct as deemed appropriate.

So, thoughts on me developing the BSEs and their area ... any problems with what I'm proposing?

Altario expressed the thought that he prefers to focus on one area for his development. I find I can't do that. I find I get bored too easily if I'm forced to work on one place/thing for too long. I have a number of entries about Kyrania on site, and only one on the area around Eight Winds Bay up. I intend to focus more on Eight Winds Bay and surrounds for the time being, to bring a bit of equality between my two focus areas.

Read up housing of the other elves (and elves in general) , there are many stone houses, mud houses, tents, and of course normal wooden houses around, not all elves make their houses out of living trees. So they will be nothing special in this respect.

Talia, did you read the Blessed Sea Elves entry? Especially the part in it where Drago says:

Quote
Housing. Arthyrón differ from other elves in this area as well. Their houses are simple buildings made of stone or mudbrick due to the lack of wood on the island.

Drogo quite clearly says in it that their homes are different to those of other elves ... aren't his works just as important to preserve as the works of the others you are defending?

So, are you saying I shouldn't embark on this project, Talia? I don't want to get through to far with what I'm planning if you are going to be throwing up roadblocks all along the way.

Dek, sorry, I have been in a hurry, should have worded it a bit differently, a bit nicer.

Of course I value Drogo's work as much as any other. I was not refering to his entry, which I have read, but refered to the quoted sentence, see above.

Quote

From there I thought you meant, as many other do also, that all elves live in tree houses like the Injerín,  Tethinrhim, the Goltherhim with their tree magic or even the Maeverhim, who avoid to leave the treetops. I guess (though I might be wrong), that more elves live in 'normal' houses of stone, of wood, wood covered with mud, in tents (furs), or any mixed construction, especially the nomadic ones of Northern Sarvonia. 

Otherwise, I'm saying nothing of what you impute to me, nor do I throw roadblocks.

Dek, I wanted to help, nothing more. I'm sorry, that you cannot see that.

I think the Blessed Sea Elves entry well deserves an update and expansion, and if you can use the material from your masterwork to expand the information about and mythology of this whole area and its inhabitants, I'd say that's a valuable project for our world. Sounds like there are several interesting stories in that part of Northern Sarvonia. So you can sail with my blessing, Dek.

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
