Overview:  Tansin oil is a very prescious oil used by the Kanapan nobility.  It is used to denote nobility as well as seen in a religious light.  This sacred oil is not known outside of the peninsula, and the secret of it's making is known to only a special few.

Use:  This oil is rubbed upon the skin and with the oil along with sunlight, it will darken your skin quite a bit.  Due to it's rarity it is applied in a certain way.  It is first put on the face, then the hands.  Most nobles can afford enough to at least darken this amount of their bodies.  For the poorer nobles, they keep the rest of themselves clothed, thus not only the skin coloration, but also the amount of clothing worn by nobles is indicative of their rank.  After the face and hands, the feet are darkened.  Next comes the arms, this is about what an average noble can afford.  The next step is the neck, then chest.  The final show of wealth and nobility is being able to put oil upon all of your legs, only the most noble go about swathed in a embroidered loin cloth.

It is also seen as holy, as the darker the noble, the more they resemble Lorfurno their god.  Since Lorfurno is a black bull, if the noble is very dark it is seen as a sign of Lorfurno's blessing upon that noble.  Thus, they are respected more by the people, and given a place of higher power.

Process:  Baskets of seeds from the Tansia bush are gathered.  The seeds are then seperated from their pods and cut in half.  The chopped seeds are then boiled in water for two days.  After that time most of the water has evaporated, leaving the seeds and some water heavily laced with the natural juices of the seeds.  The seed pieces are then scrupulously taken out.  Then a fair amount of bull urines is added, then the mixture is simmered for another 3-4 days depending upon the heat of the mixture.  During this time several other ingrediants are added.  They are all ingrediants thought to add to nobility.  Several flecks of gold, a small sliver of bull horn, and a drop of blood.  After all of the simmering, they are left with a very small amount of oil.

Origin  This oil is thought to have been derived during the aftermath of the Year of Burning Night.  The new religion of Lorfurno was taken up, and much of the nobility and social system had been destroyed.  So, several Lofurtien came together and came up with several things they thought would be needed by a good leader, and came up with this oil.  When it was found to darken the skin, it was a sign that Lorfurno approved, and has been in use since that time.

Here is what I'm submitting for update.

Any problems??

Hopefully not....

Overview: Tansin oil is a very precious liquid used by the Kanapan nobility. It is used to denote nobility as well as seen in a religious light. This sacred oil is not known outside of the peninsula, and the secret of it's making is known to only a special few.

Use: This oil is rubbed upon the skin and with the oil along with sunlight, it will darken your skin quite a bit. Due to it's rarity it is applied in a certain way. It is first put on the face, then the hands. Most nobles can afford enough to at least darken this amount of their bodies. For the poorer nobles, they keep the rest of themselves clothed, thus not only the skin coloration, but also the amount of clothing worn by nobles is indicative of their rank. After the face and hands, the feet are darkened. Next comes the arms, this is about what an average noble can afford. The next step is the neck, then chest. The final show of wealth and nobility is being able to put oil upon all of your legs, only the noblest go about swathed in an embroidered loin-cloth.

It is also seen as holy, as the darker the noble, the more they resemble Lorfurno their god. Since Lorfurno is a black bull, if the noble is very dark it is seen as a sign of Lorfurno's blessing upon that noble. Thus, they are respected more by the people, and given a place of higher power.

Process: Baskets of seeds from the Tansia bush are gathered. The seeds are then separated from their pods and cut in half. The chopped seeds are then boiled in water for two days. After that time most of the water has evaporated, leaving the seeds and some water heavily laced with the natural juices of the seeds. The seed pieces are then scrupulously taken out. Then a fair amount of bull’s urine is added, then the mixture is simmered for another 3-4 days depending upon the heat of the mixture. During this time several other ingredients are added. They are all ingredients thought to add to nobility.  Next one must combine several flecks of gold, a small sliver of bullhorn, and a drop of blood to the mixture. After all of the simmering, they are left with a very small amount of oil.

Origin: This oil is said to have been derived during the aftermath of the Year of Burning Night. The new religion of Lorfurno was taken up, and much of the nobility and social system had been destroyed. So, several Lofurtien came together and came up with several things they thought would be needed by a good leader, and came up with this oil. When it was found to darken the skin, it was a sign that Lorfurno approved, and has been in use since that time.

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
