Hello Wren! - I'd say: Please add the river thing to your entry and make some final adjustments perhaps in order to prepare it for integration. You can add a short summary what kind of trees and plants you can find in the forest, but not too much, so that we can cover the main part of these descriptions in own entries to where we'll link to.

BTW: It's not really necessary to mail a document where you underline the links, Wren! Everytime I post things I go through the entry again, correct misspellings etc. (add some new ones as others claim) and add links to everything I can link to.

BTW2: I still have to check your Ylfferhim Settlements document you sent me. Will post that here too for criticizm, if that's ok, Wren!

did you get my email? Is that OK? If there are any further adjustments let me know. Now is probably the best time to do it before I move on to the tribe and the tree entries.

Yeah, got your update through mail, Wren, with the mysterious title "peadia.doc"... Guess it's all fine methinks, so this update we definitely will have some Wren pieces on the site:)

BTW: I still need some information from you we can add to your Team page. Just check out some pages in the Team section and try to answer the questions there. If you want you can also write a little bio or attach a photo if you have one like Gean or Dalá - but this is not necessary. Putting up your such information would help us to know you a little better;)

Where's my lovely map gone? Can I turn it into a proper sant map? Although to be honest it'll probably take me a week to work out how to use a ghraphics package.

As this map is only a rather small one compared with others, I might convert it pretty soon. At least I'll try Wren. But first I'll have to finish the Nyermersys map web presentation, and some other minor things. But I'll give my best to try it soon. Just a little patience!

Lovely detail, Wren!

Will I be stepping on your toes or helping you out if I elaborate the Flora section for you?  (fill out compendium entries for those interesting grasses and so on?)

BTW we already have an entry for the Mahood Euwen, Artimidor.  Thought I'd sent it to you?  Anyhow, here:

Appearance:  Largest of trees on the world of Aer’ai’chan.  Bark embossed like a dark brown brocade, deeply grooved and buttressed trunks, rich emerald green leaves, ferny-edged and the size of dinner plates. May grow to hundreds of feet in maturity.   Fruit-bearing, spore-releasing.

Usage & Notes:  The Great Tree.  Beloved of the Elves, it has never been harvested even when fallen but left to decay and blend its woodflesh back into the soil of the forests.  Fruit is a cherry-red clustered globule, each juicefilled sphere containing thousands of tiny edible seeds, which can be dried and sprinkled on food as a natural sweetener.  Sporecases along branches send out a golden ‘euwen-dust’ on clear summer evenings, which drifts across the forest with the scent of dark vanilla.


I hope that first line doesn't seem to contradict Wren's description about the Adlemir, "one of which, just outside Thi’’eryn, is the tallest tree in the known world".  Mahood-Euwen (the plural and singular are the same) are the LARGEST (bulk and  circumference) as opposed to the slim and high-rising Adlemir.  Difference between giant redwoods and lodgepole pine, that kind of thing.

No of course not Judith. In fact you'd be doing me a huge favour. I have a history and politics sections to write.

To Judith: Ah, I see you haven't read the german description of the Mahood Euwen (how could you?), which is contained in Chapter 4 of the Avaesthoría when Eyrin rides through the ancient Thaelon forest. There's a whole page there about this tree species and the trees give the Thaelon dignity and sanctity as well. Eyrin goes there to pray. Would be a good picture too and a real challenge for an artists when the rays of the sun shine through the branches of the Euwen...

I just dug out a description of the Mahood-Euwen contained in the Thaelon entry for comparison:

"The most famous trees you will find at the Thaelon are the Mahood-Euwen which usually grow only deep inside. From the appearance of these trees also the name of the forest derives: "Táe'lón" in the elven language of styrásh means "covering wood". While the stems of the trees are completely even and smooth, the branches of the Mahood-Euwen cover the complete sky and they lock with the branches of other trees nearby. Therefore the forest also is called the famous "cloud-soft darkwood" as the poet Meowin puts it, or not so poetically said: Often one can get the impression to wander through an enormous natural hall, laid out with hundreds of peds of carpet. This has its reasons in the fact that the forest allows only very few sunlight to penetrate to the ground, so that the ground is nearly completely covered with mosses. The few rays of light shining on the mosses add a fantastic, undescribeable atmosphere to the scene one will not so easily forget, because it fills heart and soul with a feeling of well-balance and contentment."

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.
09 May 2017, 14:17:18
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
