Small one.
« on: October 16, 2009, 01:56:22 PM »
In the Draxorith page, when you mention the Avisarr, you say, "It is crafted from a translucent green crystalline substance known as vertrillium." This is all well and good, but in the description for the Crystal of Ynthar in your notes for The Warriors of the Mark Campaign, you said that the Thought Shard, which is green, was made from Thrithinium and the Essence Crystal, which is blue, is made from Vertrillium. Seeing as Vert is French for green, I would assume you just mixed the two up on accident?

My thought on this is that the essence of Draxorith makes the Avisarr green since the pit in the Banishing Chamber is also swirling green vapor.

My problem isn't with the Avisarr being green, it's the fact that the same substance is said to be blue somewhere else in the site, and it would make more sense if they were both green, because of the word itself.

Though Draxorith IS 'green' when he's in a mist state, so that does add to the explanation of using a green crystal.

Well, this is from some VERY old material on the site, so I would take it all with a grain of salt. I'll probably rewrite that stuff anyway. (It's always the oldest stuff on the site that needs to be updated and rewritten the most...)

But for the record, there were originally 3 crystalline substances associated with body, mind and spirit. And the third one, Vertrillium, should be green. The base of the word "vert" comes from Old (and modern) French vert ‘green’, from Latin viridis. So, vert = green.

If any page says it's blue (or any other color), feel free to ignore that. I'll fix that later.

That's what I figured. I basically just wanted to make sure I wasn't stupid and point it out just in case.

I realized that after I posted my reply...D'oh

Hey it happens. I've been so wrapped up in school and relationship and everything else that I haven't touched any of the stuff I've been meaning to on here, not to mention my extensive reading list. >_>;
