Entry Proposals
(Please post if you have any proposals, or would like to reserve one.)

Bestiary

Herbarium
Rrihoorr Moss[Lit: Lightening Crop]
Search Link: The Council Tree (http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,12565.0.html), in the Fauna section.  But it might be easier to just quote the passage where it is mentioned:
Quote
Another persistent pest is the Styruine Round Worm.  This horrible little grub is known to attack the precious winter stores which are kept in the storage rooms under the Council Tree.  Fortunately the Brownies have discovered a simple way of getting rid of it they attract it to certain parts of the cellars with generous handfuls of rrihoorr moss, a crop which can often be found growing alongside Greenbark moss and has a strange spicy flavour.  The Brownies then collect up all the worms and eat them.  This bug seems to have a preference for this spicy plant, and can be easily rounded up for the pot.  It  goes nicely with any dark green leaves, and adds a good, slightly spicy flavour when mashed into a sauce.
Details:  Spicy in flavour and mosslike, otherwise feel free to make it up. It is used as bait for Styruine Round Worms, but could be used for other things too - eaten by the Brownies, as a dye, a bedding....or pretty much anything else.

Places

History

Cosmology, Myths and Religion

Magic

Languages and Runes
Modern Browniin for the Llaoihrr
Search Link: Old Browniin was made into a dictionary here (http://www.santharia.com/languages/browniin/browniin2.htm), but we have nothing on newer versions of the language
Details: I would like to see a more user-friendly language that looks as if it could be spoken on an everyday basis.  It should be based on the Old Browniin though.

Library
Myths, tales and stories about any Brownies are always welcome.

Miscellaneous
The Everbark
Search Link: Mentioned in the Birni Brownies (http://www.santharia.com/places/birn.htm) and Keekoo (http://www.santharia.com/people/keekoo.htm)
Details:  An adlemir tree that was hollowed out and infused with Life Magic in the Birni Era so that it would never decay.  It was used to store documents and scrolls, which were discovered much later by Keekoo the Deliverer.  These records gave us all the info we now have on the Kingdom of Birn, including many secrets of Life Magic and the original Brownie Spiritism.

"iheh aiehaheh" or "The Wood Soothing Device"
Search Link: Brownie Bead Industry (http://www.santharia.com/crafts_trade/bead_industry.htm)
Details:  This is a Llaoihirr gadget made from wood, is used to smoothe and sand beads in the Vale of the Brownies.  This is basically a barrel set on an axel so that it can spin pretty easily, and either powered by turning a handle, or more often by a rat which has been specially trained to walk in a treadmill. The beads are put into the barrel along with a few handfuls of sand which rubs against the wooden pieces and smoothes them. One single bead will often be put into several different barrels, each with finer and finer grades of sand.
