Title: Plains of Zhun Master Plan Discussion
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 30 May 2007, 05:18:55
Anything I missed? Any suggestions? Critique? Want to volunteer?

Post here all suggestions concerning what should be added to the Zhunite Master Plan (view it in detail here (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php?topic=11704.new#new)) that is currently in the works.

Well, you could start by editing the last post in the masterplan to "Zhunite master plan", instead of "Manthrian master plan" :P

After that, i'm all yours if you need me, i'll tune back on the DW entries a bit if needed.

What? The Mantharian Masterplan? I don't see it anywhere in that thread, do you?

:: tries to hide the 3 metre "Mantharian Masterplan" sign he just tore from the Zhunite master plan ::

Have your pick Miraran! Maybe even start a Masterplan for DW? I still have to do one for the whole continent, the Krean, the Peninsula of Shar and Kaerath each

The DW require so much personal attention i'll just keep it my little playground. while i do allow, or even invite other people to add to its development i'm going to keep it firmly under my controll, there are to many things not yet described that need to be in perfect sync with the existing works.

Of course, a Kaerath masterplan would be drawing my attention immediately, i am not called the Kaerathi Gardener for nothing after all ;)

Ah I hadn't recognized that!


EDIT: If you are free, can you lend me a hand with mapping out Zhun? The geography is SOOO boring right now... We need to brainstorm a bit to see if we can come up with an overview. Also, we wouldn't happen to be high on the stock of 'Nybelmar enthusiasts willing to do cross-referencing' to comb throught that Karakan entry, would we?

*sigh* all over it Coren.. :P

And i'm sure we can map out Zhun completely.. it will be easy as all the main bits are already there (mountains and seas) the rest of the landscape is just deduction after that! (and changing the things we don't like, its a fantasy world after all! :P)

Perhaps before starting, take a glance over Judy's list of Geographical terminology up in the Places forum, as not to forget certain possibilities of interesting terra-forming material ;)

Whoops, I had cities posted here that I thought you had missed in the Karakan entry, but I found them in the Dragon's Back psot, never mind!

Nother edit, I made a mistake, this one is still good :P:

Kátrá ílár Chághruh: The group that followed the branch that trailed back southwest to their homeland discovered loaded deposits of pure silver ore at place they named Kárát Sílhádhor (“Fangs of the Earth” in the High Speech), a great ragged range of mountains. They sent messengers to the allied lands to declare that their search for the Silver Serpent had ended. On the high mountain passes of Kárát Sílhádhor they built a colossal city consisting of seventeen citadels merged together via vast underground passages and great bridges. They named their imposing settlement after what guided them to the land’s treasure, Kátrá ílár Chághruh, “the Mountain’s Call”.

[EDIT] I see Drúadan changed his post, but nevertheless I noticed in that post the "Twin Peaks" reference. It had escaped my attention back then, so here's my comment to that:

"Twin Peaks"? As a huge fan of the cult series Twin Peaks, who already got an Easter Egg on the site ("Twinnean Peaks", plus waterfall) in the middle of Santharia, I wonder if that expression would be suitable to be used here again. You know, Twin Peaks exists - at least in the hearts and minds of many, many TV series fans...

I'm sure we can come up with another name.. or just translate it into Zhunite....

Hello Druadan! Thanks for the city reminder! Should I sign you up for that wonderful search project - "top priority" I may add - under the masterplan? :)


Title: Re: Plains of Zhun Master Plan Discussion
Post by: Miraran Tehuriden on 11 June 2007, 03:09:59
Ah.. i knéw i've been neglecting something... I'll do the "geographic research of the Karakan Area" papers nomewhere first half of next week :)


Title: Re: Plains of Zhun Master Plan Discussion
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 11 June 2007, 03:47:14
'nomewhere' - is that anything like the Wednesday of the 5th week? ;)


PS: @Artimidor: I've never heard of Twin Peaks! Thanks for bringing that up - I'll try to come up with a different name :)


Title: Re: Plains of Zhun Master Plan Discussion
Post by: Drúadan on 11 June 2007, 20:29:33
Sure Coren, I'll try to look through some entries as time allows. Feel free to add my name to the list.

Hmmm....Something seems to be happening....Interested I am....Could somebody please explain the situation to me?


Title: Re: Plains of Zhun Master Plan Discussion
Post by: Coren FrozenZephyr on 12 June 2007, 01:24:29
Points to the "Above Masterplans" thread of Artimidor and the link to the Masterplan for the Plains of Zhun (which is also conveniently located on the left hand menu under Masterplans/Projects)

I realized something! Since the main Zhunite settlements (eg Cusca, Kimbar, Hostar, Marmarra, Cyras, Karakan, Evasnos) are going to be city-states controling a small number of agricultural settlements or even smaller towns around them: We will need both a place entry, describing what the city looks like or even what it used to look like eg under the Krath Empire/in the past/at the height of its glory AND a kingdom/state entry, describing the "mini-kingdom" formed by the leading city and its neighbouring vassals.

Cool...I guess....*eyes up the metaphorically position of Marmarra*

If this master plan is still going, I'd love to volunteer for it. What can I do to help?
