Hello fellow Exilian members!

Nolan here from Ars Tali Games, I'm creating this topic to showcase recent updates via our website and our Facebook - we'll do our best to showcase art and small writing pieces. Hopefully everyone enjoys our work as much as we do! :gandalfgrey:

Nice! Taking the old Tolkien viewpoint of getting the family trees thrashed out I see.  :)

I'm thinking we need to sort you guys out with a subforum at some point, would make sense given you're now spread over multiple threads?

Thanks! I've always had a tendency for going overboard with characters and the histories behind them, but it's ultimately beneficial. To be honest, I'm pretty happy with this language as of yet - the alphabet worked beautifully and mixed with my own approach to Dhazudak/Dwarvish, it really comes across as both runic and gorgeous.

I think that'd be a good idea - albeit we have our own forums, they're not very active and I'd be happy to have a small sub-forum here setup so that we may update potential fans and hear feedback.  :gandalfgrey:

Have PMed you about forums (fora?) :)

And yes, how far are you on with the language? Is it a fairly standard alphabet & familiar grammar, or something more unusual?

Sorry about the long delay, sort of missed the response!

With the Dhazudak it's roughly 200 words in now with a few tricks of grammar and a unique alphabet. The alphabets I've created for any and all races are always a bit different than the latin one we are accustomed to, thus they have a few random sounds at times - but there's a few key indicators as towards how they are pronounced.

I believe Sámssian is up to 900 words now..

Ooh, lots of new info! :)

Are Wizards long lived simply through exposure to magic, or do they have specific spells that cause this?

Wizards can and mostly do, live for extended periods of time due to Biomancy - the magic of maintain life itself. Most wizards focus on biomancy and human anatomy first, helps keep them and people they know alive - many townsfolk will think of wandering wizards as healers in many ways.
