I guess I should do this, since I never really did *sheepish look*.

Since I've written a couple of paragraphs about it, may I reserve the Hamlet of Erthaers? I know it will be awhile before I can finish it, but I figure that no one will be fighting over a little place like that.

I doubt there is much competition, but can I reserve the The Needle's Eye (eastern Santharian province of Manthria)? I want something else to work on now, and I have some pretty good ideas for this. Plus, I rewrote the Ducraer entry, and this is kind've linked with that so...

I'm stil llearning to judge difficulty, so if this is too hard I understand. I do want to continue to work on the east coast of Manthria though, and there are plenty of alternatives, so if not this, I can find something else, no biggie.

Thanks!

Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

One Needles' Eye entry - yup, it's yours, Drúadan!  thumbup

Concerning the spelling of the name: Well, there's a simple reason why I "write" it in full often. Because if I'm not sure if I'd get it properly spelled immediately, I copy it from the post and put it in. Thus it is always spelled correctly, and it is the long version...

Hi Artimidor, if its not to much trouble could i please reserve the Faerin isles (if they even exist, the name was on the map but i couldnt see them) I just imagined them to be very small and cute and i would love to develop them, for it would still be a realtively small entry but larger than my previous ones. grin :D

Katkara
Referenced by: Coren FrozenZephyr
Link: The Voyage through Dragon's Back
Details: As any visitor to this mining centre is sworn before the Black Altar to never speak of anything they might have seen within its walls, information concerning Katkara is at best sketchy; certainly not enough to provide a decent description. The Compendium, however, has acquired a collection of myths pertaining to this strange settlement through a generous donation of the Asaen family, from which our scholars hope to bring together a rough description of the place and its inhabitants. This entry, expected to be published in a near future, will attempt to dispel at least some of the thick clouds of mystery surrounding Katkara.

Could I reserve Katkara please, I would like to work on it after I finish the Ice Tribes Zundefor, Land Animal Spirit, an I haven't work on anything on Nybelmar yet so this would be a good chance to know the place?

I'm not that unfamiliar with Nybelmar that I don't know Coren is the "main man" there! :P But thanks for the notice anyway, I will PM him! ;)

Hello Arceon! I will respond to your PM here:

You can work on Katkara BUT subject to a few conditions:

1) The Black Altar (the vow of silence/secrecy) concept is central to Katkara - so you need to realize by definition we cannot have an accurate description of the place! The place entry would be more a collection of myths and stories passed on from one traveller to another than a proper Compendium 'entry'. So think more along the lines of a Library work. The best thing would be to write several 'snapshots' from these myths and pretend to "analyze" them: comparing the stories, noting their dates/origins, pointing out similarities, ruling out fantasies by demonstrating that they contradict with other factual sources etc.

This may be difficult.

2) You must read:
  • The Zhunites
  • Dragon's Back Overview
  • Karakan, the Dragon City
  • Grand Krath

in order to acquaint yourself with the 'feel' of the region - so when you try to invent tales and rumours later on, you can come up with stuff that 'fits' by extrapolating from these.

Again I must stress "extrapolate" - I do not want you to make up random stories and attribute them to Katkara to get an easy entry under your belt. I would be delighted to have someone orchestrate all the hearsay about Katkara but it IS going to be work. Be warned ;P

(3) Most importantly: Let's start by brainstorming. Perhaps do a mindmap to use as a spring-board and to gather your thoughts. Then post your draft ideas in the Nybelmar forum: these don't have to be a completed template, just bullet points or short 'impressionistic' paragraphs would work.

I ask this so we can decide together what would do and what would have to be altered/struck out before you have gone through the trouble of putting together an entry (which I might then have to tear apart).

If I have not scared you away yet - a full thumbs-up from me!

:)
