Re: If you were to write one novel...

CW: Tvtropes links I mean, what else could I write about a Jungle Planet full of Puritanical Naked Lesbians... IN SPACE! I didn’t remember it’s a jungle planet. I never got the impression before that most of them are puritanical. If it’s rainy and hot and there’s plenty of shade, being naked is just...

Re: Lexicon milestones

And in actual unique lemma forms, Rireinutire has passed the 9,900 mark. Polysemy (with a side of homonymy) will be the death of me yet. Oooooooh! So very close to 10,000! Indeed. I'm beginning to think I should level up my homonym game, so as to prolong the antici... pation. I was going to claim t...

Re: If you were to write one novel...

One novel set in Rireinu. It would probably be... a murder mystery, full of clichés, like: set in an opulent manor house run with an iron hand by the Colonel, an aging matriarch the erapoya , her eldest daughter, tired of waiting for her mother to move to the ancestors' side of the family altar the ...

Re: Has anyone ever reinvented something for a conworld? (ex: numerical system, religion, music composition, etc)

My conworld Rireinu is in a different spiral arm from Earth, that wretched hive of scum and villainy, so technically I do have to invent everything in it. Mostly though, I merely steal things from Human culture and file off the serial numbers. Like, I happen to like the decimal system, so I decided ...

Re: Lexicon milestones

Rireinutire has reached 16,000 words. Word #16,000 was

ñitoteta vt. (med.) to splint, fasten with a splint

And in actual unique lemma forms, Rireinutire has passed the 9,900 mark. Polysemy (with a side of homonymy) will be the death of me yet.

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

Thank you for not telling me where to see the infographics! You're very welcome! I'm glad you found the infographic that you could access informative.

Re: Flowering Fields - Snapshots from Rireinu

In Vanasova, the birthplace of pole dancing, the suit of wands is replaced by the suit of dancing poles (taño). What does the suit of poles look like? The suit of poles is much like the suit of batons (bastoni) in Italian-suited cards . The poles are depicted as straight batons or poles that cross ...

This really is more meta than anything substantive, but it is in its way rather appropriate to the season, the season in question obviously being Lexember.

Re: Lexicon milestones

Rireinutire has reached 15,000 words. Word #15,000 was kehata vt. to flinch, start, jump, cringe (at, from PTV) (Actually, it was more like words 14,998-15,001. But anyway.) In actual unique lemma forms, Rireinutire is somewhere around the 9,500 mark. Not bad for a mere ten years of work, if I do sa...

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...

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!

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...
