  7. Li-Wen 李文 Li-Wen is vastly different from any existing languages on Almaris, borrowing greatly from the Hou-zi in its use of characters and pronunciation, often very difficult for those unfamiliar to pick up. Words are often made of a combination of up to three syllables in phonetics, with five different inflections. Li-Wen is tonal; tones must be correct in order to convey the correct meaning, which makes it more challenging to learn. One mispronunciation of an inflection can result in calling your mother a horse. It is heavily context-laden and lacks preposit

  14. The Sky and the Star The evening creeped in over Talon's Port quite beautifully- the tavern was busy with celebration and chatter, nevertheless, today was a day the people of Tai Ping had been dreading since the very first victim claimed. From the front gates, the Talons citizens would turn their head to the sound of a loud gong. Soon after that, it wasn't long before the sounds of sobbing and wailing trailed into the area. Marching slowly through the streets, dressed in all white, the Li-Ren funeral procession made its way back to their own district going over a mile,

  18. Overview: Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice originating from the Far East, passed down by the Li-Ren’s great ancestors. It requires solid knowledge of the flow of ‘qi’ or energy in the body, usually alongside the nervous system in channels called ‘meridians’. By inserting sterilised silver needles into particular channels, one can redirect nervous sensations or hormonal imbalances within the body. It is important to note however, that acupuncture itself cannot completely treat any ailments, it is best to accompany it with dietary or lifestyle changes.

HELL GATE FESTIVAL [!] Posters have been distributed all throughout Arcas, with an ink painting in a distinctly Asian style depicting a hundred ghosts pouring out of the Underworld, each carrying empty bowls.

The air has turned colder and many households find items missing or moved around in their homes… Join us in our festivities to curb the spirits’ wrath, and their appetites! Activities
