I'm unsure if I covered Azhira's work there Art, and I've got a bone or two to pick with her, so I'll get back to this when that is done. It should be just about ready to go though.

Pun intended, right? lol

Nope, but we'll assume I'm lying :D

Would you mind giving me a hint or two at the direction the Kaaer are going in? I would really rather not have to exhume an entry once it's dead and blarrowed. It's not quite neat and tidy. Otherwise I'll put this to bed until that rolls around.

I'm still a little off on the name. Visually it looks a little silly and it sounds off in the way you'd pronounce it. Do the Kaaer even have larger blades that they need the distinction of y' (which also means weak which is bugging me a little). Any chance we could get something mono-sylabic? The Kaaer have Kuglimz background, so to borrow the kuglimz word for Animal (Ho) and sword (Reve) we've got two more sounds to use. Rev'oq (Reh-vuh-ock) has a similar sound to t'lark with the harder ending sound.

There are a few threads floating around that hint at where the Kaaer are going. The tribes' development is constant and likely I will be changing stuff all the time. I have to revise all of my Kaaer related entries now due to the large history development I am doing with Alt. Eph'denn and the Themed'lon especially. And, once I make up my mind about the religion, I'll be revising all over again... :)

In other words...don't ever expect to keep a Kaaer related entry dead and blarrowed!  ;)

Given the Kaaer's unfamiliarity with steel production, they will not have large blades. Bows/arrows, daggers, spears and axes likely remain their chief weapons. The "y" in the name meant small, not weak. I suppose Rev'oq is sufficient given the Kuglimz background.

That is...until I change my mind about the Kuglimz involvement at some point!  grin

Don't let that blarrow get too dusty, ok?  cool

In all seriousness, you won't be changing this anytime soon, Valan. I will keep faithful what is here and work with it in my revisions. I really do appreciate and thank you for writing this for my tribe!  :D

A little bogged down with getting money from folks for college, so I'll attend to this when I get the chance Azhira. Don't think I've forgotten it :p

Valan, I am going to assume you'll use the name for the dagger. I am going to use some of your entry in the weapons section in the tribe revision. But I can wait for that until you polish this up.  thumbup

Unlike most weapons this dagger begins without an edge, in a sort of extended tang. It curves slightly, before fanning out into a longer, leaf shaped blade.

A dagger without an edge?  shocked When you say "begins" I am assuming you are talking about the bottom of the blade that touches the handle?  The tip (pointy end) of the blade would have to have an edge correct?

I am just trying to envision what this looks like.

The weapon is honestly shaped a bit like a boomerang. The actual blade only makes up a little more than half the length of the weapon. Of the remaining space, part of this is blunt and serves as an extension to the handle, to give it a bit of extra reach. This is not wrapped in leather, and the blade extends from this at a 120-125 degree angle (just as an approximation) downwards from the rest. The remaining space, enough to have one hand wrapped around it and not expose too much of the wrapping, is the grip. It's all wrapped up in leather and is where you actually hold the blade.

If I can get my scanner to work I can try to show you what it looks like in my head.

Hmmm... This one still in the works as update time is nearing? Valan seems away for a while, though he has edited the entry on July 9th... Don't know if this version is meant to be final...

I have the impression there are still things he intends to change.
