Hello Santharian Dreamers! I'm Sam and I love Lord of the Rings and other like works. I was introduced to Santharia from a google search about fantasy pictures and here I am. I don't role-play so don't ask me about that front as I have no clue in stuff like that. I am interested in all areas of dream development but in particular Santhworld seems to charm me in some way. I have several questions about Santharia in general which I have laid out below:

1. Can anyone develop stuff to do with Santhworld or is it mostly for more experienced members?
2. What programming language is Santhworld written in?

So thanks in advanced!

Questions! I like questions! :D
As far as I know, if you can show that you can do the research behind it, you might be able to do one of the trivia games.
No idea about the second. I imagine it could very well be one of those closely guarded secrets, but don't take my word on that.

Have some cookies, find someone to give you a tour, and watch out for that Valan character I keep hearing about. Apparently he's not very pleasant.

Beyond the horizon where the earth and the heavens meet
lies a certain point where they are not joined together and where, by stooping,
one might pass under the roof of the heavens.

To answer your questions on Santhworld:

1. Developing Santhworld stuff
The Santhworld editor that allows making own modules isn't available yet for general download, but the plan is to get to that maybe within the year. The idea is that everybody who likes to play around with it can do so, and has all the functionality at hand, even to make pretty complex things. There are some technical difficulties to overcome until that is possible, but nothing that cannot be done with a little effort put into it.

Right now, with the additions to the Nepris module, we're trying to support various new features like multiple party members, shops, basic character creation etc. So it is important to get that done before it makes sense to allow others to play around with the editor.

However, if someone has ideas on how a module should look like (there are some modules in the works right now by various team members), it can all be put together in documents and I'll see to help them get things into Santhworld.

2. Programming Language
Santhworld is a Flash application, so it's programmed with Flash and Action Script 2.0, and with Action Script we've programmed our own "Santhworld Script Language", which interprets scripts the editor generates (which bears the name "Peter Interpreter" :)). The Editor is completely done with Visual Basic 6 BTW.

Hope that clarifies a few things!
