First mentioned by me in Tharoc's Venlaken Tangleweed ( i wish people would forget about that alternative name!), and now adopted as topic name for a bunch of nybelmar-related topic links, the Enkyklopadië Nybelmarnica can easilly be used for further referring. I would find it more credible that Nybelmar, which supports several ancient empires and high civilisations, would have an own institute for gathering knowledge, than that a Sarvonian organisation has the funds to support several off-copntinent staff members en their entourage.

Thus i propose the official creation of the Enkyklopadië Nybelmarnica (although i do not insist on the name ;)) as the Nybelmarian sister organisation of the Santharian Compendium of New Santhala. It gives us a better explanation of the great amounts of knowledge the Compendium has on Nybelmar if we can say we are exchanging documents and reports with the Enkyklopadië in return for similar information on Sarvonia.

As far as our entries are concerned, it makes no difference. The documents need to be translated into Tharian, reworded and edited at times for the Compendium's public, etc etc, so we will still write as if we are working for the Compendium, even when the entry would in fact be written for the Enkyklopadië and then send to Sarvonia.  It might change some references (for instance, the Compendiumist Miraran Tehuriden becomes the Enkyklopadian Miraran Tehuriden), but that is all..

Any thoughts?

Not that my lowly opinion will have much bearing on the final decision, but I for one see the sense in what you propose.

There is always the great library in Nybelmarasa (started for precisely the same reason as our compendium by Dearan). But if that is too far away, I am sure another location in the east can be found. too late now, cannot even form proper sentences. need sleep.

Didn't know that anyone was waiting for me here - but yes, would definitely make sense having a Nybelmarian equivalent to the Santharian Compendium. Would be good if you could decide on a name, and an entry on it would make things perfect of course, so that references could be linked already once they are made.

Nybelmar Boys (And Girls, even though there are none, since we are a highly civilised continent and give women all the rights they desire. And train them not to desire anything.), how about a name for this puppy? Anyone agree/disagree with the original proposal? Any better ideas? The sooner we can start referring to this institution, the better.

Well I like the idea of a compendium in Nybelmarasa.....but I'm not sure on the name....Something more Dearanic would be nice....

I think that, with the large amount of nations, we will have several halls and libraries that form a cooperative union in some way. The only reason the Cempendium can function in its current state, is because the whole southern half of the continent is one bigass nation. And even the Compendium has dependances, such as the Lorehold.

I like the Enkyklopadië Nybelmarnica, it sounds just fine and dandy.

Ahhh....Well now this is revived:

- One Base in the Scepteres of Tarshiin

- One Base in Zhun

- One in Nybelriod.....naturally

- One in Gondolwain

- One with the Aesteran descendents?

- One in the Kazai?

- New Lillivear?

Need more obviously....

I would assume this is only with regard to West Nybelmar, since the Compendium already has links with the Great Library of Aca-Santerra, the centre of East Nybelmarian Knowledge (or something like that).....

I assumed that Miraran started a small branch on the Kazai/DW border, collecting Kazai, Lilivear, DW and Faen info. (Mira was in turn recruited by Coren as a translator, and so on, and so on.)

Well, the Tarshiinite 'Monastery of the Sun' acts as the Scepteres 'Great Library' to start off with. They could not so much 'join' the Nybelmarian Compendium, just merely 'share and cooperate'.

The Monastery of the Sun would have information on the Scepteres itself, the Trumarim, Piscinite Brownies, The most about Germon Doilth and bits and pieces about the Inami realms and Orcritish due to their locations...

Nybelriod's is strategically placed to know about Zhun, Sarthera etc. and due to its Dereanic origin would probably have archived information about the Shar peninsula (though it would obviously be all about the outdated empires, since the peninsula is practically unreachable these days).

True. The Morchini however are xenophobic, and the "Vikh just dont like handing out their secrets, so i dont see a way for a kazai-based branch otherwise. Maybe it is a research facility only, which reports its findings to the Archives of the Castellum Kezari in Fa?
