Re: Are your main conpeople human or of a different species?

My main con-world consists mostly of lizard folk (Salthans)(, or rather, the lizard folk are the ones I focus on mainly. There are humans too, and jungle-cat people, though I havn't really fleshed out their cultures a lot. They have a vaguely human-like shape, I guess with green scaley skin, and a t...

Re: Naming Practices

In Saltha, a name is given shortly after birth, when they are sure the baby will survive (probibly a few weeks), chosen by the parents. He takes the middle name of his mother, and's family, and his last name his father's family. When the boy comes of age at 10, and underges the ceremony of the Uagi,...

Re: "She's a ten!"

Salthans would measure in a scale from 1-25, with 25 being "perfect". so I guess around 12-13 would be "average". Though maybe calling someone a 25 might be considered sacraligious to some, though it'd maybe be taken as simple exaggeration. (Though then again, as someone pointed out, since my world ...

Re: It's Time To Change It All...

Saltha uses a base-25 system. I hadn't thought much of using it for time, because I figured it'd be a pain, so they just use our method of tracking time. (Also, awesome picture, Metropolis!) As for time? I once tried to come up with a novel calendar and time keeping method... It was really frustrati...

Re: Doshsoldash (Salthan card game)

Yeah, I'm starting to wonder if I'm using 5 too much.
It's in their calender system (5 days a week, 5 weeks a moth, though that leaves some extra days) and math system (they used a base-25 system).

I'm going to try a new rule pass expanding each suit to 1-9, so with 46 cards total.

Re: Doshsoldash (Salthan card game)

Well, I meant more mechanically than culturally, having multiple divines does some weird things with the way the game's scored (it seems weird counting dupes of the same divine in a divine tableau, so you end up keep getting junk cards). I suppose the problem is the same with numbers as well. Maybe ...

Re: Doshsoldash (Salthan card game)

I fixed it with a better image. I also made some changes to the OP, doubling the number of cards (Yeah, 2 or each card) and did some tweaks to the rules. I feel it's a little weird having multiples of the same divines though. the reason I wanted to make each suit cards 5 is 5 is an important number ...

Re: Doshsoldash (Salthan card game)

I like to think it's like the hanafuda/go stop deck where there might be different games, but this is the one I've written so far. E: And the thing is, Hanafuda only has 4 cards per suit, but there's 12 suits, so there's plenty of cards. I'm starting to think a hand size of only 5 cards is a bit too...

Re: Doshsoldash (Salthan card game)

Axiem: Yeah, I fear there's too few cards to make the game interesting. I'm thinking of doubling the deck at least. I don't know what that does to the odds exactly, though the value order of the hands should be the same. Thrice & elemtilas: I'm not an artist, so I took some royalty free images from ...

Doshsoldash (Salthan card game)

Someone else posting about a deck of cads in their world made me think of what a card game would look like in my con-world, so here is Doshsoldash, a card game commonly played in Saltha. It's a game played by two players, and sometijmes used as a gambling game. (Version 2) The Deck A Doshsoldash dec...

Re: Government

In Saltha (A land of desert dwelling lizaardfolk), The country was ruled by separate clan chiefs of city-states. They later unified under a single king Sapa in 447 KG as a single nation. Then the great revolution which started in 3 NG overthrew Kakel. He was the worst and most corrupt of kings, caus...

Re: The NEW Resources Thread

I found a cool web/android (/ios?) app for memorizing languages called Memrise . You can make your own lessons, including adding recording audio examples of words and phrases, and can split it into lesson blocks. This is a pretty cool tool for commiting your language to memory, or sharing with other...

I've been working on this more, and did an update.

Re: Lizardfolk biology

Specifically, I was thinking what this would mean in terms of treating sick/injured Salthans (both in general treatment practices and in surgery) that would be different from humans, and what maybe a manual would look like for doctors in a non-sathan country (e.g. humans) for treating Salthans.

Fair enough -- but take a look here . I've found several links to Salthan culture. Yeah.

Do you mean, I should have put this inside one of those topics instead of making a n...

There, I made them smaller, though it's later instances of the images, so quotes of the originals won't be changed.
