[Syliras' OOC Thread] The Calm within the Storm

Postby Katelyn Marks on February 26th, 2015, 6:40 pm

I'm going to break this thread in with a question regarding Ekeldi.

As it states in the lore, it's a sign language developed by the Knights similar to Grassland Sign. What I'm wondering is when a PC successfully completes their Knighting Quest and finally rises to Knighthood, how do they go about learning it IC? Is it like learning any other language, where you must play out your character practicing and being taught by those who know it--in this case mostly NPC Knights?

Or is it a language given to them upon being marked by Sylir, like Nura for Phylonurists? As a way for Sylir's warriors to communicate with one another?

I would think you need to be taught, since it wasn't Sylir that made the language, but the knights.

Seeing as the grassland sign is a language one must learn, and how the knight's weren't in possession of Ekeldi before the Druva Family came into the picture, I'd say one would have to learn it. After all, it was slowly developed over years, and is in essence a language of its own; from what I understand, and not something instilled by the wind oak. Of course, like all languages, the STs usually get the call, on how one acquires it. I'm no expert, and I'm sure Nightmare could clear everything up, when he has the time. Just thought I'd jump in the new OOC, and try being helpful. ^.^

As an update for everyone, I'll be having to take this next season off. My health as not been improving so writing is difficult and as I'm a high school senior in a 4000 level college fiction class, most of my writing energy goes there. Sorry for the two dropped threads, but I just don't have the energy to write here. Might be back for the summer.

Garland, that's a very personal question to ask. I'm sure if she wanted everyone to know, she would share, but that's her business.

Whoo! Seasonal Calendar is up! And wow is it ever packed.

I just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work from the STs and anyone who contributed. It's always exciting when the season changes and there are new updates (calendar, registry, etc).
---

I will be away (at a cottage) from July 19th to 26th inclusive. I may get a chance to write and post, but I really might not. I'll be visiting and catching up with a bunch of family.

Need some help getting started? A quick CS review? Ideas for your first thread and tips to find good thread partners?
I'm more than happy to act as a Mizahar Mentor to get you settled in.
