Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Games Rireinukave play Playing cards The most common type of playing cards ( pevuhima ) on Rireinu is the so-called Matusima deck ( Matusimañiño , literally 'Matusima system'). This deck ( himaviha ) consists of 48 unique cards, divided in four suits ( ñari ) of twelve cards each. The suits are cup...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Does 1st Sec’y Radetzky sometimes have vivid dreams? Is her dream-persona sometimes named Mary-Sue? Maybe she can “meet” this P.I. Seanava after all! Indeed! Also, you are never too old to write fanfic. “Seanava-sama” … Was the Galactic translator influenced by Japanese? Or is the 1st Sec’y reading...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

First Secretary Radetzky finds something to read But trouble or not, she was a potential client. And yours truly has bills to pay. So I stood up and bowed, a little unsteady on my feet, as I had been drinking my lunch when she walked in, and offered her a seat and a cigarette. - No thank you, I onl...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

If you ever read any Lensman stories, it’s the addictive drug they’re trying to control. On the other hand sodium dithionite is a real thing. I disavow all knowledge of this, how you say, Lens-man. Only a zwilnik would have the unmitigated gall to suggest otherwise. Also, not to be confused with th...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

What sorts of goods would Rireinu sell? And what might they find interesting enough to buy? Clearly, the latest fashions from Paris are not likely to be among them... Those are the pertinent questions. Answer them right and you'll make a mint. Or even a cinnamon. But thionite is a big no-no. Whatev...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

I also have a group of space faring human conpeople(though they speak an a priori), do you think they might meet Rireinukave? Yes, it is certainly possible. It's a big galaxy, almost anything can happen. There are some Rireinu traders who travel the stars, looking for interesting goods to buy and s...

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

And a question! -- I find it very positive that age (and presumably wisdom!) is so respected among the Rireinukave (hope I spelled that right!) What if the oldest person at the (metaphorical) table happens to be a male? Age implies wisdom. For a proto- kave savannah monkey to survive to a ripe old ...

Frozen out in the Deep North - Don't be disgusting! cried Professor Takematu and stood up from the table.

In the Rayañina Hills Sari, a high school senior, was visiting the Rayañina Hills with her family to see the ñarirehe, or autumn leaves. There she met Misa, a local college student. Misa told Sari all about the Rayañina region. - Like, there was this tribe that lived totally isolated. See that moun...

The Blue Marigold The dame was trouble. I could tell the moment she walked into my office. She had plenty going for her, and sprawling in my chair as I was, I could see it all. Her skin was the clear mahogany shade of a local, but somehow it suggested part of it came from a bottle. She was wearing ...

So there is a Rakoczy March too? Cool!
