Hi Hi,

Thanks for all the welcome. The whole atmosphere makes it rather difficult to stay away (not that I want to in any case).

New friends and town-mates. Nothing like seeing someone from your hometown in a strange and unfamiliar traven. Hello Mina! And oh... 3 couldn't possibly be an intimidating number. In fact it's a great number. 3 from Singapore, maybe more.

Thanks for the willowbark tablets. Now I know why bitter medicine is sometimes the best. I'll remember that as long as I am here.

Erian... that scared me quite a bit but it takes alot more than that to scare me away. Great display of fangs but seriously, you should brush it more often. Tooth decay can be a painful process. :lol

Cheers again (and we use cheers alot but mostly written, never spoken)

Thank you Judith.

(Picks a Kao Kao from the plate and looks somewhat apprehensive at first but decides that it looks more tasty than harmful and proceeds to pop it in her mouth)

Mmmmm... this is good. I must say that this world produces very interesting food. I am getting rather tired of those from the place I come from but this confectionary you call Kao Kao reminds me a bit of what I know as chocolate. I absolutely love it. It definitely is a fresh change. And cha'ah with honey goes without question.

(Proceeds to pour a bit of honey into her cha'ah)

And oh yes, one can study English quite about anywhere in the world though perhaps the standard and focus might vary.

I will say that developing the character is a bit more of a challenge than I thought. I was thinking of starting as someone simple and then letting her grow naturally in depth but as I read more and more, it becomes rather complicated.

Judith, I don't suppose you have anything for a headache?

And I checked out the dream team too... It really is a mircocosm of races and nationalities. Glad to know that there are fellow Singaporeans around too. I would love to know her when she comes by. But for now, maybe the best thing to do is work on the character.

(takes out a few loose parchment sheets with scribbles all over the place and looks rather sheepishly at everyone due to the current simplicity of her character) :

Hello Talia,

Thanks for the really quick reply. It's still me and I gathered Wildswans isn't a really Santharian type name so I modified it (or rather changed) it. The community seems really warm and I would really love to join.

I have taken a look at the sites you pointed me to and I am in the process of developing a character though I think I still have a lot to learn. Perhaps I'll roleplay first then maybe if you don't mind a newbie like me, I'll join the board. It's good to get a hang of things.

In any case, I thought I would introduce myself further since I must have sounded pretty brief in the earlier posting. I am Felicia from Singapore. I am interested in postmodern lit, fantasy, science fiction and children's lit.

I am both a writer and an artist but my skills are extremely raw so I'm really pleased that this place seems to be a great place to explore and hopefully contribute. I write mostly amateur magical realist fiction and I draw mostly architecture.

I think that's all I can think of for now.

Cheers! :smokin

is just posting to say "I love the picture" too skimpy a post? I don't really know how to comment on paintings beyond the I love it bit but certainly, I like it very very much.


The artist usually sets out — or used to — to point a moral and adorn a tale. The tale, however, points the other way, as a rule. Two blankly opposing morals, the artist’s and the tale’s. Never trust the artist. Trust the tale.

Lovely picture!!! Agree with the contrast bit as well especially on the left side of the picture. The division between the sky and the ground seems somewhat pasted on and not as impressionistic as the right side. :broadgrin

That's so beautiful... I love the shadows on the walls - definitely spooky and charmingly mysterious. However, my untrained eyes sees the clouds as squeezing the moon a little - it seems a little odd to have two parts of the clouds so heavy and the center completely devoid of wisps. Perhaps a faint outline to show the bits of the moon hidden by cloud?

Hi Judy,

I'm not great at digital art but I have a few comments. The sky as Talia pointed out is lovely. The concept is nice too except that in addition to the outline problem, you might want to take note that the burring lines also causes the temple to look like it was pasted on to the background. It could have something to do with depth as well but that I am not sure.

As for the flag, it might work better if there was a kind of frame instead of a black backdrop because it looks oddly suspended in an uncomfortable way. If there was a frame, it might not look ill-set.

Hope that helps!

Oooooh I just saw this thread!!! Love mangrove forests - I live next to one. There mangrove ecology is extremely interesting and has lots of room for innovation since you are dealing with the intertidal zone where creatures there are adapted to both land and sea, not to mention it as a great migratory stop-over for birds since the soil is rich and there are always good pickings for a meal. Fishes that have feet, carnivorous shells (that eat other shells), seeds from trees that fall like arrows so they can anchor themselves in the water-logged soil. Perfect setting for fantasy creatures. Then there are otters sometimes as well as Komodo dragons... those big huge lizards whose hide is so thick, it isn't easy to shoot them if they are chasing you. Just don't anger them. :nod

I'm not sure if I went out of point but yay for mangrove forests!!! If you need information on mangrove ecology, I can help... I used to be able to explain it pretty well.

Great Masterbard and Mentor!!!

Your apprentice got lost in the dungeon... too many possible routes to take and she is not sure which one works and is seeking some opinions.

Sorry to not have been as efficient but I have been sleeping over Ashmaid and I cannot think of anything original. Help? There is part one and two in the library forum.
