  1. [A painting of a field of heather] For far too long the Wood Elves have been unaware of the growth that has been taking place outside the walls of Amaethea and The Vale- I, Ehrendil Taliame’onn, took it upon myself to take the name of Chieftain of the Taliame’onn after the disappearance of the previous chieftess, Melawen, my lari’onn, several years ago. Despite my exile from the Wood Elven nations at the time, I endeavored to restore the seed after Melawen left it in turmoil. When I started passing along parts of our culture— some of which had been believed to have perished with Briar Taliame'onn— to my children, who underwent the traditional trials, the seed slowly started to resurface. I rekindled old ties with my mal'onn, La'io Taliame'onn, by expressing my intention to assume the chiefdom's obligations also while spreading the seed outside my immediate family. Kholi’brii asks that we bring vibrancy to this world and I worked for decades to do just that and bring honor to my seed after my own failures in the past-- both to my seed and my people-- and the unfortunate happenings that the seed had endured since Briar’s passing. Since the scattering of my people, I've amassed ten members who are currently alive and strong, there were several more who have regrettably passed away since joining (Aspects guide them on their path to the Eternal Forest), and various others who have joined but are indisposed for a variety of reasons. I encourage all of the members to wander freely for, as the chief, I do not believe that the forest's children should be chained to one location. We are, after all, "of the trees." We have no allegiance to any nation and are subservient to no one other than the will of our Mani- we are to bring vibrancy to a world that is ever covered in darkness. Some may question my decision to rebuild the seed without a public proclamation- and to them, I understand your concern, why do I decide to announce this now? To what advantage do I have to proclaim this today? With my exile from Amaethea now lifted, and the seed strong and healthy as a mighty ironwood tree- I have decided to name the individual that I wish to succeed me, my eldest daughter -- Raell Taliame’onn, for I have laid the roots of a tree that may thrive under her leadership. She understands the customs of our people, and she possesses leadership qualities so great that she takes it upon herself to teach others what I have taught her of her own volition. She brings vibrancy to every room she walks in, and embodies what it means to be chief of this seed. To name her as my successor and to soon lead the seed that I have nurtured and loved for more than a century fills my heart with immense pride. I also write this message so that all Taliame’onn that I have been unable to contact since I took the mantle of Chief know that we have not been crushed under the weight of the splittings of our seed and our people. Furthermore, I welcome anyone, Wood Elf or otherwise, who chooses to join the Taliame'onn and aid in our creativity, so that we may continue to be a beacon of vibrancy in this world full of darkness. You may find me or one of my kin among Vikela or Amaethea. Chief of the Taliame’onn
  2. Credit to @LaffenOutLoud for the original Tiva post. Along with all the people that he credited. The Growth of Tiva The Tiva Expansion V. 1 [!] A book would be delivered to all major Elven settlements for placement within their library. Tiva was once the sacred language of the Mali’ame, and many of its meanings were lost to time. My former chief, Skylar Taliame’onn, took it upon himself to try and compile meanings so that we could continue to use the language. I made it my life’s purpose to help expand the knowledge of Tiva and scoured all references, including seed chiefs and any book I could get my hands on, in order to make the language of Tiva more comprehensive. This book contains all my findings, compiled into one place. The contents of this book are split into the same segments as the original book and are as follows: Tiva’lye – Flowers used to identify yourself Tiva’annil – Flowers used to guide people or denote an area Tiva’illern – Flowers used in ceremonies (parties, marriage, funeral) Saner’tiva – Flowers used to communicate ideas Tiva’lye This is worn by Mali to describe physical, mental and emotional features about themselves, and others. These flowers tend to be the most commonly repeated flowers inside of a Tiva wreath. True Calling - Oregano - Worn by Scholars - Mugwort - Worn by those who have second sight or fortune tellers; can also be worn by those who have good insight - Bittersweet - Worn by those that judge and guardsmen - Orange blossom - Worn by artists - Carrion - Worn by criminals - Spider Flower - Worn by politicians - Hops - Worn by brewers or bartenders - Sweet Woodruff - Worn by teachers or mentors Personality Traits - White Jasmine - Honorable -Queen of the Night- Elegant - Hou-zi-faced Orchid- Funny - Yellow Jasmine - Heroic - Spearmint - Clever - Echinacea - Athletic - Juniper Berry - Humble - Catnip - Manipulation, manipulative - Oak leaf - Strength, unbreaking - Chamomile - Calm, balance - Patchouli - Greedy - Aloe - Sensitive - Savory - Creative - Water Lily - Feminine strength, inner peace - Red tulip - Passionate - Thyme - Comfort - Valerian - Cowardice - Borage - Blunt - Parsley - Rebirth - Bluebell - Humility - Mint - Virtuous - Wisteria - Long Life/Immortality - Lemon balm - Sympathy - Olive - Peace and Wisdom - Heather - Admiration - Violet - Loyalty - Belladonna - Silent/silence, worn by the deaf or mute -Dog Rose- Worn by the blind - Sea Holly - Hope - Lily-of-the-valley - Sweetness - Goldenrod - Justice - Hollyhock - Ambition / ambitious - Holly - Worn by individuals that are considered wise - Clematis - Mental beauty, complimenting an individual’s intelligence - Lemon balm - Sympathy - Violet - Loyalty - Birch Leaf - Weak-willed - Honeysuckle - Pure happiness - Purple hyacinth - Sorrow - Hyssop - Sacrifice - Palm fronds - Freedom - Angelica - Inspiration - Dill - Hatred of evil - ElderBerry - Good health, used to boost immunity Tiva’annil This branch of Tiva is used to denote traits about an area or guide people inside of a destination. Area Traits - Lady’s Slipper - ‘Step softly here’ - Rafflesia arnoldii - Home of the halflings - Snowdrops - ‘Azdrazi sighted here’ - Tarragon - ‘There are monsters here’ - Sage - Placed in places to ward off evil Tiva’illern The most sacred branch of Tiva. Holds flowers used in ceremonies and denotes flowers that are important to the Aspects. Events - Myrtle - Good luck in love, and in marriage. Used to decorate marriages - Lady’s Mantle - Traditionally given to widows at a funeral - Parsley - Used to decorate festivities, festive, or means an individual likes to party Saner’Tiva This is the most literal chapter of Tiva, used to give literal meanings and small phrases. This is often to compliment or reinforce ideas that are already within the Tiva wreath. Love Language - Yellow tulip - ‘Your smile is sunshine’, ‘you’re my sunshine’ - Red Salvia - ‘You’re in my thoughts’ - Blue Salvia - ‘Forever mine’ - Ambrosia - ‘Return to me’ - White Clover - ‘Think of me’ - Forget-me-nots - ‘Do not forget me’ - Bachelor’s button - Forever alone - Passionflower - “You’re beautiful” - Fennel - Worn by those that ‘get around’ - Cherry Blossom - Platonic “soulmates”, given to people who are considered to be your friends for life - Yellow Carnations - Rejection - Mimosa Flower - Secret love/ secret affair - Camellia - Longing - White rose - Given to those you think you are worthy of courting Insults - Black Rose - Wishing death, of the worst kind. Use your imagination here. - Pine leaf - ‘You are hopeless’ - Thistles - ‘You talk too much’ - Rhododendron - ‘Watch your back’; out to get someone - Crab’s blossom - Corrupt of the heart / heartless - Basil- Deceit or deceitful - Buttercups - Childishness - Wormwood - Dirty, gross - Tansy - Declaration of war - Apple Blossom - Fading hope, forsaken - Yellow Rose - Infidelity, jealousy - Wallflower - Worthless Misc. - Hydrangea - Thankful for understanding - Butterfly weed - ‘Accept the consequence of your actions’ - Acanthus - ‘It’s not about fixing, it’s about letting go’ - Coreopsis - ‘The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit’ (Patience) - Speedwell - ‘Feel Better soon’ - Green Clover - Somewhat unique in Tiva as each petal holds a different meaning, the first petal means integrity, the second means faith, the third means love, and the fourth means good luck. You are considered lucky if you find a clover with four leaves. - Edelweiss - Ultimate devotion, love, and courage; when delivered to an individual it means that you would go to any length to ensure they are safe and loved. Conclusion With the expansion, the language of Tiva is not forgotten and becomes more prevalent as the years go by. With a better understanding of Tiva comes a better understanding of our culture. Giving a voice to the voiceless. With this notion, I hope that our ideas may flourish and our community will thrive like a grassland of brilliant minds. Written and compiled by Ehrendil Taliame’onn With notes from Briar Taliame’onn ( @briarthorn ) and Skylar Taliame’onn along with several seed chief’s input. (Also some help from the amazing @Tigergiri for formatting and conclusion <3 )
