@Mina: Excellent idea thumbup

@Mennon: Be sure to browse around the Northern Sarvonian continent, where there's a lot of cold stuff as well, if that's what drew you to Cyhalloi. Besides that, even below the Tandala Highlands there's enough winter climate, so I'm sure you can find a place to explore your own ideas!

Mina: Ok, so what all needs to be done with Ximax. I won't be able to start anytime soon cause I don't have AutoCAD, so I'll have to see if I could work on it in school during my CAD class.

Gean: I think I'm going to focus my efforts on Northern Sarvonia. I do think that area does focus more on stuff I'm interested in.

I also have another question. While I was gone I watched some flint knappers. I would like to put this type of stuff in so I was wondering if there was any cultures that practice this.  I did a search and didn't see anything, but I thought I would check to make sure.

I guess Mina didn't actually mean CAD constructions, but more advice from a person who knows something about architecture. Though if you could construct a visible model that wouldn't hurt, but I don't know if it could be acomplished that easily. A model could at any rate serve one of our artists as blueprint to draw the building properly. But as I said: I don't know how much work that would be.

Flint knappers: We haven't an entry on flint knappers yet, so you could do something here. Maybe more primitive cultures could use them mainly, like the Doimo Nomads. Though no flint knappers we have something in that direction in Sarvonia as well, the Burning Stones (Magather).

Well, I'm willing to do whatever you need with Ximax.

With Knapping, what would I need for an entry on it? I also had an idea about the more advanced cultures using. Obsidian is the sharpest material known to man, but it's not overly strong. So I was thinking that maybe some cultures with magic could use it to harden the blade to a point that it was as hard a steel.

Well, you can take the mentioned entry of the Burning Stone (see above) as an example how such an entry could look like. You could cover the sections Appearance, Territory, Usages and History/Origin and - as it is something that exists here on Earth as well - you should do your researches on the net to gather information on that topic. Ideas so far which you've posted sound quite fine with me.  azn

The place to post it would be the Miscellaneous Forum.

And you should mention in the 'historical development' of knapping that dwarves are believed to have used some of the earliest flint tools, though they seem to prefer to deny this when human scholars raise the subject...

Ask me for more on this later!

If you are interested in working on Northern Sarvonia, I could be tempted to take on another apprentice... :D Seriously, we could use a few people in the North.  As far as flintknapping goes, you might want to also consider non-human, lower sentience races (for instance, trolls) as well as more primitive humans.  In  any case, I'll keep my eyes open for your work and try to provide helpful commentary.

Alysse: Well I would love to work on Northern Sarvonia, so if you feel up to having another apprentice I'd be more than willing to be it. I am currently thinking of a new creature that could possibly be a calvary mount for the Kuglimz

Artimidor: So I'm a little confused. Am I supposed to be using the Burning Stone entry as an example for an entry on knapping or obsidian?

The scheme you fine there, yes.  The sections which were covered there could be covered in your entry as well.
