    If you're going to send order revisions, please just resend the entirety of your order set. And you can send revisions up until the point in which I say no more revisions. Name deadline will literally be up until the moment I post the update.

    Konrell Naming Conventions

    Konrell adult names take the following form:
    {rank} {personal name} {ship/island}

    Ranks (gender neutral):
    [none] - King (or High King)/captain (the captain of a ship or king of an island are held to be essentially synonymous with their ship/island so do not require a rank prefix)
    Ast - Landowner
    Jel - Officer (on ships with more than one officer this is followed by their precedence, Ek [first], Kot [second], Mon [third], Tan [fourth])
    Fonma - Crewman without special duties
    Fonsed - Crewman with special duties
    Po - Serf

    Personal names:
    Column 1 Column 2
    Male Female
    Geres Laal
    Jalan Yerrel
    Nevitt Fottraal
    Loddutt Boora
    Zeren Mersana
    Kirrinn Kotal
    Melan Jebaraal
    Jezen Nefra
    Ser Galindra
    Fristin Welaal
    Hufirt Benaal
    Bistir Sumna
    Vorlen Iva
    Delestiren Ulemna
    Toten Heraal
    Neben Kottiru
    Quilar Forl
    Kalleb Commari
    Pallen Otira
    Mitiser Zeera


    Island names:
    Kontel (the largest island), Konret (the northern small island), Kontan (the north-western small island), Konmal (the south-western small island)

    Example ship names:
    Talfier, Talmalal, Konveel, Kalifer, Talnit, Jifril, Konkar, Herelin, Galat, Festin

    Konrell child name take the following form:
    {personal name} {Ana [M]/Anraal [F]} {mothers name (either full or personal depending on formality)}

    Notes:
    In informal usage only a persons personal name is used. If it is required to distinguish between two Konrell with the same personal name the rank is used as well if they are both from the same crew/island or the ship/island name if they are not. In the rare event two Konrell have exactly the same full name they tend to acquire a nickname which is used instead of a personal name.

    In the event that a significant number of Konrell settle down to a shorebound existence the ship/island part of the name will likely be expanded to include settlement names.

    Birdjaguar, Lord Herobrine,

    I used the napkin that i had written our agreement upon to clean up a spill- forgetting that i had written important information on it.

    I think i remember it but can you send me PM to remind me of the details in case i got them wrong.

    So sorry about that.

    Many thanks,
    Immac.

    From Misthali...

    To Osmos:
    Greetings, Kingdom of Osmos. The Misthali would like to do more trading with your merchants. We would also like to trade resources, if you deem so.

    To Cavharia:
    Greetings, Cavharia. The Misthali would like to get over past relations and sees great opportunity in trade between our two states.

    To Langoren:
    Greetings, Langoren. The Misthali would like to open up further trade relations with your state. This increased trade would include the trading of clay pottery that your fine craftsman have made.

    To Konren Hitifer:
    Greetings. The Misthali would like to discuss further trade with your prospering state.

    To Tamayame:
    Greetings, Tamayame. The Misthali have taken notice of the recent Gold Rush in your state. The Misthali would like to further increase trade between our nations, including the trade of your most recent luxury. Also, Queen Irlanki would like to send scholars of our own to help in your state's attempts to construct a Great Library. Hopefully, our scholars could exchange knowledge and benefit the documentation of this knowledge.

    To Konrell:
    Greetings, Konrell. The great temples erected upon your islands have not gone unnoticed. The Misthali would like to take an opportunity to further trade between us two states even more.

    Family names are very very rare and are usually used to denote a village or region. This is primarily because of the creche system (see prior story) which breaks down immediate family bonds and replaces them with something larger and more generic.

    All names are based on modern Thai names. I am unsure of the exact conventions used but you should have tons of examples to choose from in the above list for a little while at least.

    Greetings to the Lords of Misthali from the Clans of the Tamayame

    We are more than willing to welcome your merchants into the great harbor and bazaars of Waipio City. Bring your goods and we'll make deals to make us all wealthy.

    Please do send your scholars to study in the hallowed rooms of our magnificent Library. Bring your scrolls of knowledge ,great and small, and then drink deep from the well of what we know that all the Serpentin may benefit.

    Of course, trade is the thread that ties the Serpentin nations together.

    Do these trade deals make any difference? I was under the impression that trading was automatic unless otherwise stated.

    Termidorian Names

    Termidorian names are strictly patrynomic (or matrynomic, depending on the gender of the subject). The Termidorian culture has no concept of family names, and, with no formal bureaucracy, no need for one. Termidorians are delineated by their first names and the names of their maternal or paternal parent, separated by 'teri' meaning roughly 'Son of' or 'meri', meaning daughter of. For example, in the name Turqur teri Turmar, the subject's first name is Turqur, and his father was named Turmar. His father's full name was Turmar teri Burqär, and his father's name was recorded as Burqär teri Turqur, completing the circle. Termidorians are also frequently named after their parents or grandparents.

    Male Names
    Turqur
    Turmar
    Burqär
    Burmar
    Barman
    Tärman
    Shamur
    Äriqur
    Äriman
    Lisman

    Female Names
    Ärima

    Barqa
    Barma

    So everyone can adjust their orders as needed without several days of order amendments when TLK could be working on the update.

    You are correct in some aspects; when filling out all the economic forms I had, I had to figure out who is trading with who, so more or less I guessed. I imagined that the friendly Konrell and Misthali are already trading with one another, and so I marked that. The Tog, meanwhile, I had not really trading with anyone save for the Muka and the Karika, both Tog nations. You know, seeing as the Tog were busy up and invading everything in sight. So basically I made judgement calls, which I will adjust according to player action. It doesn't necessarily hurt to make trade agreements, it's just not always necessary. That's the nature of the beast. I'd post who exactly is trading with who currently, but that's a lot of information. Basically, if you are currently on decent terms with them, they're close (the Einion states and Cavharia aren't trading, for example) and have a means to trade with them (i.e, no land-locked nations you don't border), you are trading with them.

    Orders sent. The orders themselves follow the new 'priority funding' format we discussed. If the orders are okay, please just nod to yourself quietly and no need for a response. if they are not okay, please post or reply.
