Twilight Ramblings 6 - Empire Buildings - missing link
Twilight Ramblings 7a - Fubarnii 101 Chapter 1

     Just sticking to the topic is hard enough, I feel proud to be a part of Salute every year its the most understated day of the year, being able to meet the creators and players of independant games is the best thing and to be a part of a growing game like Wot is intense.

     Im looking forward to how things open up this year its as though every dice roll will tell a different story, already my hunter has tasted Furibarni blood and all we can say is yum ?

Thanks for the links! Some of these I had seen but most I hadn't.

I'd just like to agree with quite a few others that should you do a book compiling these articles and your lovely sketches then I'd gladly buy a copy.

Just wondering if there is much difference in Fubarnii dwellings across the Empire, e.g. I assume settlements near the coast have fewer tunnels being so close to the sea and they'd end up a bit wet.

Mike and I discussed this a few times.

Simple answer is yes.

He saw my buildings style as central empire urban style. Although he still wants some squatter and interconnected cylinder styles.

In more rural areas mike saw the settlements as more subterranean with only an occasional larger communal building or two.

In the southern areas of the castanii (spelling) there are more "mud hut" styles, with sandy soil very poor for tunnelling. Thatched roofs small dwellings style.

The delgon in the frozen north have much more social building style with centralised large planned buildings of consistent style and gandeur. There are some of his sketches around the forum somewhere.

A quick question on Fubarnii settlements - do they have walls? I assume that at least small settlements don't nor those in the central empire but what about those along the Delgon border? Also are there any digging beasties that cause problems for the Fubarnii?

There are cities with walls, although generally not as a defence against Devanu...
There are digging beasties, and I imagine some could be an annoyance.

Thank you for the linked ramblings.  I was beginning to look at them after your recommendation, and this makes it much easier for a 'newb' or would that be 'newt'? (new twilighter) to the world to find the information.

I am looking forward to learning about this world.

Thank you for the post caliginosity, another topic I seem to have missed.
And what a brilliant topic this is, a bit like a ttreasury trove.
