Re: The Languages of Yantas

Throwing another phonology at the map, now for Proto-Lorgyak, the ancestral language of the Lorgyak languages spoken in the light blue area marked out here in Konyur: http://i.imgur.com/mLphxBB.png Somewhat inspired by Mon-Khmer in its "sesquisyllabic" root structure, I also wanted to use this as th...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Can we talk about the US getting rid of net neutrality now? One of the reasons I was in favour of the UK staying in the EU was because the EU seem to favour protection of net neutrality more than the UK government does. If the FCC really does go ahead and repeal net neutrality protections like the ...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Okay, now the "SJW" discussion has started getting a tad heated, so I'd suggest dropping it for now. While the original discussion was actually surprisingly civil, discussing the term in context, bringing up its use as a pejorative term can only lead to arguments that I don't see going particularly ...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Thoughts on the current situation in Zimbabwe, everyone? Cynic : Nothing's gonna change in Zimbabwe. It will continue to be an autocracy for the near future. It's gonna go from Mugabe to the Military's biggest highest up. Yeah, that's what I think, too. I'm just glad it didn't escalate and he stepp...

Re: Magic and Gods on Yantas

Can deceased immediatly communicate with the living? My thinking at the moment it no, at least not in a way we'd recognise. They'd be able to nudge things here and there, and their presence would cause changes in the air (think your stereotypical signs of "ghosts", air gets colder, things move arou...

Re: Magic and Gods on Yantas

Could a philosopher in Yantas propose then, that humans are just gods that still have their physical bodies and thus are not yet 'allmighty'? Assuming that they could come to understand that this is the way things work "in the real world", then yes. The same would also hold true of the Kovur. As wi...

Re: Magic and Gods on Yantas

So I started thinking the other day about this again. So far I haven't really incorporated the magic/deity system into Yantas, since I've not worked much on culture, but it's still there in the background. Anyway, I started thinking about an afterlife. I mean, there's clearly something in this conwo...

Re: Does anybody else get bored of conworlds easily?

I don't get bored, strictly speaking, but I do get bogged down a lot in stuff that I just don't understand, or have a limited ability to use certain tools to anywhere near a decent enough level to create anything that looks good and detailed (like rivers or altitude maps). I opted for creating a con...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

Right. While I agree about not telling people they can't use a slur in group, I think we (outsiders) are certainly justified in questioning the practice. Some slurs, I think, would be best left to the rubbish heap of history. We really need to rise above that kind of behaviour. I think that's one o...

Re: RIP cursive handwriting..

Well I mentioned over in the CBBers Handwriting thread that my handwriting has some intentional choices, like the shape of the descenders on y , g and j . It doesn't look much like the handwriting style I had in my first year of college. Huh. One thing I never noticed before: "united" isn't capitali...

Re: The Quintessential 5th Conversation Thread

I thought I'd weigh in on the SJW thing discussion (which I hope we can keep as civil as possible), but what I'd consider typical of "Social Justice Warriors" is that in most instances what they're trying to "fight against" isn't their issue, but the issue of some other person or group. I only vague...

Re: RIP cursive handwriting..

Easiest way would be to open it in Paint and simply adjust the sizing to something a bit smaller. Elsewise, I would usually suggest you throw it in a spoiler... but that still isn't working so far as I know. Testing. Nope it isn't. The Spoiler function is working for me now [:)] You said "testing".
