  1. A dark elf wearing a Flemius mask and a Flemius garb looks at this proclamation, shrugging his shoulders with a man in a Tankred mask. "Ah, the degenerate AIS men always making such proclamations, when they kill random civilians. They really needed this victory!" Says he, while looking at Tankred masked man, both wishing that they aren't AIS men.
  2. Wilheim rubs his hand together as he took out the knife behind the back of a Kortrevich shill, planning to eradicate The High Steward's vote.
  3. , Karamani scholars studying the stars with the aid of Salvian instruments YILDIZ KILAVUZU A GUIDE TO THE STARS Long had the nomadic Karamani people relied on stargazing & landmarks to navigate the many realms they passed through, including Arcas. For centuries, their methodology was passed by mere observation: children looking at their stargazing fathers. The bureaucratization of the realm however inevitably meant that the Karamani had to follow suit: learning to write & correspondent in a few foreign tongues. This resulted in an increased number of scholarly Karamani who, due to their literacy, were able to record the many ritualistic aspects making their many endeavours possible and successful. And so, the ‘YILDIZ KILAVUZU’ was born. Not only to record the methods through which the Karamani observe the world but to also compare them to the ways of the foreigners. THE CLASSIFICATION OF CYCLES Whereas the common foreigner speaks of months, the Karamani speak of cycles. They identify that within a period known as a month, a set of identifiable changes happen to the physical realm: such as temperature, state of flora & fauna, et cetera. This cycle repeats itself consistently and contributes to the realization of larger-scale cycles such as the change of seasons, or the days leading up to important festivities. CONVERTING MONTHS INTO CYCLES Snow’s Maiden - Oluşum, meaning Genesis Horen’s Welcome - Timur'ın zaferi, meaning Timur’s Triumph First Seed - Floranın dansı, meaning Flora’s Dance Grand Harvest - Bol bayram, meaning Bountiful Feast Sun’s Smile - Kumun kucağı, meaning Sand’s Embrace Amber Cold - Alev Yenilgisi, meaning The Flame’s Defeat Deep Cold - Timur’un vefatı, meaning Timur’s Passing CONVERTING THE INFIDEL YEARS TO KARAMANIC Although years bear little relevance to the Karamani during their endeavours, a preserved methodology of counting years had persisted their many journeys. Whereas their contemporaries from the Holy Orenian Empire or Hanseti-Ruska had adopted special calendars for cultural purposes, the Karamani simply never stopped counting from their conception, thus creating a calendar different from the norm. Year 0 is when the father of the Karamans and esteemed religious figurehead, Timur, was born. He was born in 1680 and died in 1743. If you subtract 1680 from 1743, you get 63: which anno 1743 is the current year for the Karamani. Calculative examples are below: Infidel year - Karamani year 1680 0 1693 13 1712 32 1743 63 1843 163 THE CLASSIFICATION OF STARS The Karamani had looked up to the stars for ages, and named differently from the norm. They refer to these for navigational and religious purposes, believing that certain stars are descendants of Kashgar, known as İyeler. A bright star, signalling the north, also known as the Northern Star, is referred to as Kanuni Timur, symbolizing the benevolent guidance of their great ancestor who stands central, living and posthumously as a star, to the navigation of the Karamanoğlu. The brightest star in the sky, also named as the Scorcher, is recognised as such, and thus called Parlak Nezih. It symbolizes the warm embrace of a maiden and is considered an omen of days ahead if seen. A constellation of seven stars, visible around everywhere in Arcas is named in Karamani tongue as Yakın Sırbı. It refers to the idea of proximity, resembling the brotherly closeness of the Karamanoğlu as a united clan. A star that shines with a strong red hue, mainly visible around the Korvassa desert earns its name as Kızılkalpak, meaning red hat. THE CLASSIFICATION OF ZODIACS The Karamani faith, known as Kashgarism, believes that the souls of the deceased stay in the mortal realm to advise his or her living offspring. It is believed that souls prepare a newborn soul for the conditions of the cycle he or she is born in, thus causing identifiable traits for people born within a certain cycle. THE STATESMAN In the cycle of Oluşum Men born in this cycle are usually of a scholarly and temperate nature, finding themselves fulfilling the organizational and bureaucratic tasks for the Karamani. Women born in this cycle are usually of an ambitious and gregarious nature, seeking to emancipate themselves by fulfilling professions unusual to them. THE EQUESTRIAN In the cycle of Timur'ın zaferi Men born in this cycle are usually of sturdy and militaristically capable nature, often serving the Karamani by blade and bow. Women born in this cycle are usually of a relative masculine nature and affectionate to animals, usually compelled to be the caretaker of Karamani horses or livestock. THE AGRARIAN In the cycle of Floranın dansı Men born in this cycle are usually of a diligent nature and extraordinarily healthy, inevitably forming the forefront of the Karamani labour force. Women born in this cycle are usually of a proactive nature and find themselves infatuated with herbalism, often taking care of the sickly and the weak. THE HEDONIST In the cycle of Bol Bayram Men born in this cycle are usually of a decadent and socialite nature, being prominent organizers behind most of Karamani meetings and festivities. Women born in this cycle are usually of a labile nature and make a lot of offspring, usually being the mother with the largest family. THE STARGAZER In the cycle of Kumun kucağı Men born in this cycle are usually of an explorative and emotional nature, embattled by their quest for purpose as much as their desire to understand more of life. Women born in this cycle are usually of a pious and scholarly nature, seeking to understand and represent their faith optimally. THE JOURNEYMAN In the cycle of Alev Yenilgisi Men born in this cycle are usually of a pragmatic and vigilant nature, often leading the Karamani caravans with their stellar knowledge of other cultures, biomes & territories. Women born in this cycle are usually extraordinarily physically fit and responsible in nature, finding themselves to be competent merchants and cartographers. THE SETTLER In the cycle of Timur geçiyor Men born in this cycle are usually of a responsible and content nature, prone to be tending to the temporary settlements of the Karamani. Women born in this cycle are usually of a romantic and caretaking nature, usually finding themselves dedicated to parenting or tending to the households of their family.
  4. Dixie Turpin waits for Flemius to make an angry speech with popcorn, watching the two sides clash, while sitting cozy in his neutral ground.
  5. Dixie Turpin, a random dark elf appreciates these sentiments, as he laughs on his own while cleaning his blade. A passerby seems to look at him weirdly, since the dark elf laughed randomly while cleaning a blade.
  6. "What is convenşın?" Replied Kübilay.
  7. Kübilay looked forth towards Oğuz in a seemingly infuriated manner, twitching his moustache in high disaproval towards the Böö, while eyeing the stone walls and the wooden framework of the halls, imagining a life in which their children would live within these, allowing them to grow content, and be ignorant of the world outside. How birds fly, how wolves prey on the weak, and how horses go forth. He would document his disapproval that evening within his tent, through carving a wooden carving of a horse, being held down by stone blocks, as if a ceiling had collapsed over it.
  8. Kübilay nodded towards the Qalasheen man, in a seemingly piqued curiousity whole he would sip on this tea, brought forth through a ceramic pot. The words of the man seemed to go through his head in a strange manner, yet the Karamani tried to understand more fiercely, his initial scepticism being broken away by the hospitable nature of the settlers.
  9. Dixie Turpin, a bandit who took these deaths not seriously, seemed to be taken aback after a new missive was released in Kaedrin, grunting in contempt about this, since it was a law regarding how one’s interactions were supposed to be conducted. He did not like censorship, and the idea of being limited to speak in the mannerisms of a nobleman. With a sigh, he would look up to the palace in Kaedrin, nodding towards the guards. “Ah, I am most impressed by the Young Prince’s ability to maliciously comply. May the God bless thee.’’
  10. Dixie Turpin looks at Mike Robertson and nods towards the man while enjoying the picturesque MMORPG-like cards that represented this tavern's activities in the missive. Sitting in the tavern, cross legged like a Turkin Akinji, he would slowly throw a set of dice, landing a decent score, thus robbing Robertson of his money. "Haha! You a pig mandem, tha's a small money that I win! Bet larger!"
  11. Wilheim Barclay would hear upon the news, a nostalgic smile touching his lips, while he was out riding with his Brother Anton, and cousin Tylos, contributing to the war effort. As the messenger arrived, the man would pull on the reins to get the party to a halt. The queen was dead, and Wilheim felt as if friends were falling one by one, while he aged. He felt dutiless, and without a purpose, while others departed to leave him secluded in the world. He remembered Milena first striding forth proudly into the palace, during a court, while he has guarding the boy-king, and from that day, Wilheim bore great respect for Milena. He would shake his head and look at Anton. "Queen's dea'" He simply said, and ushered his horse forward.
