Yes, I would definitely like to use their verses. Expanding its territory is a sound idea. :) Thank you for the input.

I have expanded the territory of this delicious bug, but I'm still trying to come up with a name for the Brownie that coined the Squelchbug harvesting tecnique and equipment.

Rookie wrote a guide to Llaoihrr naming, if you find that useful for your reasearch.

Perhaps Oorret Birchbark for a guy or Rreiee Greenbark for a girl?

You're on to something there. Perhaps Oorrett-Squelcher, as he would be known for his invention that provides the Brownies with a steady supply of Squelchbug juice and eggs.

I have inserted the name Oorrett-Squelcher in the necessary area and cannot find anything else that would need changing, improving, or expanded upon myself. As such I would super appreciate comments or whathaveyou.

Thank you for your time and patience. If there is anything you would like me to review for you, please don't hesitate to ask. I'd be happy to give any entry a Uri-check! :3

It is also interesting to know that this curious butterfly is of only one gender, all of which are capable of both fertilizing and laying their own eggs.

Quote
It has also been found that the male Jellyfly has a high preference for Lampstalk pollen, and can often be seen congregating where you would find these.

Arent these two statements at odds?

Quote
In the first year of their lives, these bugs will mate an upwards of three times. After mating, often the couple will journey together to find a bush to dig a hole beneath.

Do humans ever use these bugs?  I can see on hot summer days, children all a clamoring to go squelching and find these delicious little critters, especially if the juice/jelly was naturally refrigerated within the bug itself.  Just an idea.  Feel free to discard, but one that I might use on the RP side, or novel I will one day write. 

Other than that, I really like this.  Good Brownie addition.  Perhaps the Brownies that work on these bugs are Squelch Wranglers. :)

Thank you for finding that hopefully last tidbit of inconsistency. I originally had both males and females, but later decided to change them to an asexual critter. The intention of making their territory larger was to have more than just the Brownies enjoying these butterflies. I will fix that and add something about human children making snacks of them, as I think that is a good idea. However, I'm not sure how I would work in the "refridgerated bug" aspect. I'll give it some thoughts while I do the edit and let you know.

 :D  Perhaps "refrigerated" was too strong a word.  I meant just cool on a hot day, not necessarily cold.

I believe I've addressed all of the edits and integrated your suggestions. I didn't exactly make them "refrigerated" persay, but I made it so that they prefer to stay in the shade at all times so that they remain as cool as possible. :)

Gah, Artimidor, where's the automagic computational entry editor? What are we paying you the big bucks for?
Yesterday at 14:42:37
So, you mean: In case you might have updated it in the meantime without knowing about it? nerd Interesting... ;)

Sometimes when I'm reading over an entry I'm writing, I like to refresh the page to see if it's updated itself...

Okay, thanks. Perhaps I can sort it all out for my masterwork later.

Placeholder, undeveloped. A temporary affair at any rate.

That's what I thought, but what about, "610 - Founding of Kingdom Z, coronation of King A, supported by the 4 "archbishops"."
18 November 2015, 22:10:41
Kingdoms were before Santhros, later there were provinces. A rough outline of Santharian history after Santhros can be found here BTW.
18 November 2015, 18:20:45
Artimidor, most of my confusion comes from Santharian history between 547 a.S and 1438. I thought Santharia was unified since Santhros, but then how were there other kingdoms?
18 November 2015, 11:39:21
What you mean with "Kingdom X", Seagazer? Any specific question?
18 November 2015, 08:03:46
Honest to Qu'prur, I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to Cyhalloi's orcs...
