Re: Infrastructure of Conworlds

The big cities in the Hunzai are extremely cramped, namely Ichikabaji and Mokoshiba, at least the modern parts. Everything post-war was designed to fit as many people possible into the area. Many also lack roads, as while there are "cars", the the biggest cities in the nation have much more effectiv...

Re: Afterlife

Death and, logically, the afterlife are not popular subjects in Hunzai culture. Indirectly though, the idea of re-incarnation is most seen, stemming all the way from the ancient Zelsen natives. They believed that when a person dies they become an animal, and that in fact most animals are really the ...

Re: What is your conpeople's greatest flaw?

So your conworld is a tirade against American Democrats from an American Republican viewpoint? Con- culture , stepping outside the Hunzai reveals a quite different set of ideals. And it's not meant to be any sort of comment on any Earth culture. Propaganda or not they haven't fought a war in 200 ye...

Ah, the Himatsu Zeruse, or Hunzai. Greatest nation in the world? Well their schools would have you think so. Flaws? Oh yes. What are they? Well, historically, hypocrisy.

私は似ているが表示されません。 I do not see similar I do get "that looks like Japanese" a lot on the conlanging boards. I don't speak or read Japanese, so I can't really say if there's any similarity between it and Zerezai, but the language isn't based on Japanese. Though I suspect it looks far less similar to Ja...

Re: Topic of scripts

Well, modern Zainese writing consists of about 4 different scripts: Mihukepon, Maiku, Mihukono, and Bokai. Kinda tired ATM, so I'll keep this brief: Bokai The Bokai is a script carried over from the Bagamaji side of Zelse history. Bokai are traditional "name" symbols used to construct names in the H...

Re: Money!

Currency has been around as long as known written history on Bakatsu (which isn't relatively that long TBH). The current standard in the Hunzai has been around since the Revolution, the tsume . Today only 1 and 10 tsume coins are produced, and 100 and 500 tsume notes. Everything else has moved entir...

Re: Con-Weaponry

Not a weapon, but I did think up a neat piece of con equipment -- the nailshield. It's like a normal disposable wooden shield, only in the center, there's a large circle of outward-facing metal nails packed closely together; closely as in adjacent, with virtually no space inbetween. What's the poin...

Re: Con-Weaponry

Some more weapons, these ones made much earlier, at the start of the Modern-era of the Great War, which opened arguably with either the Stchafe invasion of the Zelsen island (which ultimately failed) or the Zelsen invasion of Western Bagamaji (at the time under Stchafe occupation) that led to the ~9...

Well, I've been conworlding for as long as I can remember.

Re: How do you say "I love you" in your conlang(s)?

Do any of you who distinguish between "love(romantically)" and "love(friendly)" also make that distinction for "hate"? I.e. "I hate(romantically) you" would mean that you find the addressee romantically repulsive, though they may still be a friend, while "I hate(friendly) you" would mean that the a...
