Nothing useful comment-wise, but couldn't leave without sharing:

Rayne, it's so pleasing to have you back! I've missed all your wonderful contributions :)

I have two tribes to add to the myths, if you don't mind: the Lillivear High Temple and the Orihirim (which I have just started). However, I can't do so before August. Is that ok with you?

No, Aran. I just wrote the entry Judith mentioned. Scroll down the forum to read it ;)

Eternal Spring, damn! Why didn't I think of that?

remember: Cannes, 14 Juillet. Music before the fireworks >>> transform: little pedestials all around (gardens, especially lining the gulf). Special holiday >> all musicians playing the same thing at the same time (Medieval hoparlor?)

outcomes: school of music >>>> school of dance (instituted by Dearan)


Questions to self:
= Which city? East coast or west? How about Cusca?
- Heavy krean influence or not? Keep it entirely Zhunite?

Sorry to disappoint you Aran, but don't expect more text to come. This is meant to be a short chapter, more of a glimpse really. I hope it wasn't too boring?

Fabulosmont bien!

:clap

Incredibly moving, :hug

Yep, still watching...

Actually I like the structure as Rayne so meticulously formed. However, arranging entries according to region and history does make sense too. How about having both as available options? Simply clicking a button to change the menu structure? (this is doable right?) For instance, when writing an entry about a queen, one might find it easier to see what others have come up with and what cross-referencing needs to be done; while simply enriching a region or tying up the cross-referencing (yes, I love this word) or merely researching smith's suggestions may be more useful.

sorry for my typos, I am terrible on a French keyboard with no spellcheck

More information about Sah can be found under the places forum entry "Sah - a small, yet busy Aesteran town of trade"

Note: As the title suggests ;)  Sah is an Aesteran town. The Lillivear should not be mentioned in this entry.

EDIT: :o  I just saw that you have already included these...

One correction though: the runic lace I mentioned wasn't an actual (material) "lace". It's a web of energy constructed by the runes used until the spell is totally shaped. Sorry for the confusion :o


The irony is I LOVE your myth too much to ask you to dispose of it... Hmm.. Perhaps you could offer it as a myth/opinion/story non-Krean (ignorant despite their concietedness of knowing so much about these enigmatic race) scholars who have never been to the Twin Kingdom generally hold.

You could even speculate how such false myth may have originated (perhaps using the same word (lace) confusion /  a mistranslation by one scholar memorized by hundreds of others?)


This is a fabulous entry! Thank you so much Firewyre!!! I adore your scholastic writing style :)


EDIT 2: The menflesh is only found around Sah.

Hope I could be of help

The following can also be found at the Sah city entry:

All this is not to say, however, that Sah has suffered less from the quirks of wild flora than any Lillivear city. The menflesh (a.k.a. “rotflesh” or “hellspit”), roughly about five thousand years before the Breaking (1649 b.S, a.k.a. “The Year of Darkness” in Sarvonia), had almost caused the newly-fledgling town to be abandoned. Lillivear scholars have not yet agreed on the proper description – least the classification - of menflesh but that the plant resembles an “orange-pink jellyfish” or a “rotting bulk of flesh and nerve” is a known fact. Unfortunately, the revolting appearance of the menflesh is far from its most dangerous property. When subject to heat, distortion or sharp probing the jelly-like plant will abruptly explode and in doing so spread its spores upon anything ill-fated to be within range. The seeds will than go under the creature’s skin and use the creature as a host until either (this being the more probably option) the person claws himself to death to end the “suffering beyond imagination” or is drained dry. Each spore will then grow into another menflesh plant on the spot it hits the grounds. In the case of a deficiency of hosts during the mother plant’s outburst, the spores will nonetheless mature into a hellspit, although the process will be considerably slowed.

Once the eruption process starts there is absolutely no way to bring it to a standstill – or so the Aestera believed until Priestess Xályníá discovered the runic lace to prevent and/or contain the blast around 4503 b.S.

.....


Although there is a very rich of fauna in the forests surrounding the city, Sah is perhaps best known for its Ráxén, a unique butterfly specie whose orange-red patterned black wings can reach up to one palmspan in length.

A certain fluid or fluids the Ráxén Butterfly releases is the only known natural secretion that can completely paralyze the menflesh plant and thus prevent its detonation. In fact, it was the very secretion of the Ráxén Butterfly on which Priestess Xályníá based her legendary spell. Instead of weaving the patterns with pure shafts of energy, she infused the threads with a certain degree of fluidity to enable a closer imitation of the mysterious properties contained in the butterflies’ saliva.

I don't think that would be possible before the 25th; I'm in a language school in Cannes. Perhaps you could post what you already have on the boards and I could try to look through that one?

Sorry...

So, what do you say?
