Last night I woke with a start in a strange forest.  The silence of the dark woods brought a chill to the bone.  All around I was confronted with strange trees, a hard oputer shell seemingly melting away as the morning light shone through the trees.  Every now and then I thought to hear a soft voice on the wind whispering ............. "Ronoth"  

Carabery Tree

   I must say... I'm impressed, this morning I woke up home at 5:45 am.. it was time for school, it was still dark outside and it was storming. There I had the feeling I don't want to get up and just get back to sleep.... I took my phone and took a look in the world of Santharia, when suddenly a surprise came, a message from Seeker. I knew it can only mean one thing, I saw this picture and it gave me the strenght to get up... it made my day

   Thanks Seeker

Hmm, I see dragonflies, or something that looks similar anyway.  Do we have those in Caelereth?  I know we have something called dragonflies, but they're actually a type of lizard.

Great Perab!  I am glad you like it and I am more glad that it made your day.  :)

Mina- This is a damselfly by our wordly comparisons.  And you are correct that we do not currently have such an insect entry in Santharia.  I searched through all the insects and could not find a suitable one to fit in the swamp.  So read through Perab's draft on Ronoth Forest and he mentions many dragonflies live in the forest.  However as I realize the dragonfly is a lizard for Santharia I decided to go with the cousin of the dragonfly ... the damselfly.  I figured it is common enough that I may be safe.

Very nice atmospheric picture, Seeker, will fit nicely to the entry, so of course aura +1! Also it made Perab happy and we also got a picture of a damselfly (even though that entry still needs to be written, I'll add that part to the resources then methinks), so we get two flies with one strike :D Great work once again!  thumbup

    Hey about the damselfly, is it possible that I take the work on me... I mean to write it, seems I can catch that swamp atmosphere pretty well... and everyone would have a profit

Well, yes of course, Perab. Would be a good opportunity to contribute something to the forest you've started with this tree, make some connections to what you've already written. Yep, good idea! :D

    But there is something I may need some small help with:

    http://www.santharia.com/dev/index.php/topic,14854.0.html

    The tiny shiny twilight rose is a really old entry... but I still have the same problem... I am stuck in my own idea... Mira already pointed out that I need to add some connection to the world, but I am not really sure how to give some connection... I had the idea to give some behavior related to other plants or objects in the surrounding, that collapsed when I remembered I am writing about a rose...

I would recommend to focus on one specific entry for a start, either the rose or the damselfly for example. Don't open up to many projects at once. To get inspiration read some of the entries on the site. Usually Myth/Lore is the section where you can make nice references to certain cultures for example - but you know, if you put a plant in the middle of nowhere you're in trouble. So wherever you put something, read up on the tribes, towns in this area and learn a thing or two about the people, their religion, their lore, superstitions etc. and it will get easier. Personally I prefer it the other way round: Focus on a place or a tribe and see what you can create that really fits there, e.g. if there's a dark and evil place and there's a reason why the place is that way you can create weird plants in there with a bit of imagination that are directly linked to the source of the evil through myth and lore. It's not that difficult if your approach it right.

Oh, cool, I wasn't aware of that entry.  Looks like it hasn't been uploaded to the site yet, so there's still time to fix the terminology there.
