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. I d...

Re: Lizardfolk biology

Fair enough -- but take a look here . I've found several links to Salthan culture. Yeah. I mean, there's no topic I can see (even on that list) specifically focusing on Salthan biology (beyond a basic description). 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.
