  1. UBUNTU HAS FALLEN . . . THOUSANDS MUST SIEGE HALLOWCLIFFE. "To you who did not respect the Spirits Wishes for our battle to be a 'suit and tie' event, smell the blood in the air as we reave your fort of stone and mud, -whatever will it take for you to realize your follies? Will we have to muster upon your city or will you submit to the correct path. Yes, history will remember your fight. They will remember your armies and ours clashing, however only when they recall the reformations of the Uruk army and how our force disciplined and valiant slaughtered your men in castles of twisted collaboration with little casualty. Our armies will be more experienced, more driven, stronger than any on Aevos. Do not mistake this for a simple gloat, or an empty threat. It is a promise. Wherever the forces of the disparager march we will be behind, until we achieve full surrender. Look to the consequences of your resistance. Look how the demands heighten. Remember they only grow day by day, just as your forces resolve weakens. The Spirits are angry, they call for your desolation, they call for the return of the Jungles. 'Deliver this' they ask. Lo' I tell you of how we won upon Ubuntu. It was upon our first volley that a GREAT SPIRIT gave me premonition. The Spirit, one of memory showed me how the battle was to play out if we marched upon Ubuntu, a grand victory. It was the WATER SPIRIT who pointed me up your walls, it showed me how your armies would be slaughtered- at the moment of our victory my mind was made spectral and I could not thrust my blade into your bodies, nor slash your necks- then only did I know it was a premonition of things to come. TRANSPORTED back to my siege camp I decided alone to continue bombarding you until we relieved ourselves of ammunition. Why? Because it terrified your troops and slaughtered them, because it was RIGHTEOUS. This is how UBUNTU FELL. Remember this, the SPIRITS are upon our RIGHTEOUS side." -The second letter of Daahd'Lur to the Vikelan peoples. With this announcement, the REXDOM and its allies march to siege HALLOWCLIFFE. The demands have changed. Any former allies of Vikela will remain neutral lest they provoke the wrath of Lurak and be forced to pay reparations among other concessions. Allies of Vikela be warned- you have made your own bed, you now will pay the price of war and your lands are considered hostile. The REXDOM makes these demands which will be ceded in full or any peace will be denied: The removal of all structures built by Vikela. The replacement of the Queendom with stewards of the forest. The destruction of the daemon statue (it floats upon the waters without voidal intercession!) The destruction of the so-called tree of “five.” Accomplished. War Reparations from nations who oppose the just action of Lurak and prevent it from being a quick endeavor. The Relinquishing of claims over the southern 'Forgotten Valley,' by Vikela and Brabant. (Tile 1 Birch Forest) The Destruction of the DEMONIC EVILS that VIKELA is conjuring at HALLOWCLIFFE, as well as the structure of IBLEES. War Reparations from the Vikelan Government to pay for the cost of War. The exile of Vikelans from the southern half of the continent for eternity effective one year after unconditional surrender. The Fall of Ubuntu. Accomplished. WARCLAIM: JUNGLE_PLATEU_9 (HALLOWCLIFFE) WARGOAL: THE REMOVAL OF THE VIKELAN ENTITY HENCEFORTH.
  2. This a post made not to toss blame, or to complain over a trivial issue. But on the second war claim for the war between Lurak and Vikela, there were one too many mistakes. I understand that there are bound to be numerous issues that can come up that cannot be predicted. And there were many of those. But in a war claim, PVP should not be turned off once it has gotten going because someone brought an item they weren't supposed to, nor should there have been code accounting for such an anomaly that messed with PVP. The fact that it occurred during a pivotal moment, and gave one side a significant and obvious advantage, only makes the issue worse. This is not to say that there was foul play, but when these mistakes occur in such a manner that they outright shift the tide of a battle unfairly, those who suffered for it are going to look for a blame. Because why should they suffer for something completely out of their control? In the name of all those people who were interested in a fair fight who had their hopes and the sight of victory ripped out from under them over a water bucket being placed, I call upon the staff working on the war claim server to take significant issue to ensure that no more mistakes of this degree occur in the future. No one should have to have their main worry in a war claim be whether or not the server is going to do something that makes victory impossible for their side, whether it be accidental, or whether it be foul play as many may begin to suspect. Such occurrences, even if they are not intended by the staff, disrupt faith that the staff are doing their jobs correctly, and that only causes problems to cascade. If this conflict is to be one that the majority of participants can accept the conclusion of, it needs to be conducted and managed in such a way where victory is not assured by which side has the least glitches that benefit them during a battle, but action and the will to win that makes so many fights interesting and exciting, whether you win or lose. We all need to do better, or no one will want to be in a war claim because of the stress and uncertainty, and that's not fair to everyone who has done everything in their power to make war claims fun and exciting for their members.
  3. The same anonymous figure places a new missive. "This is a mere observation. Nothing more. But the camp of the forces of Lurak that are preparing to attack the fort of Ubuntu held by Vikela, appears to be a mud fort. Now, for those who do not know what this means, a mud fort is, as the name implies, a pit in the mud. However, in the jungle terrain surrounding Vikela and especially Ubuntu, it cannot be done without disrupting the local flora to rather significant degree. One of Lurak's stated reasons for war was that Vikela was disturbing the forest with the 'invasive' Tree of Five. Vikela, thus far, has not made any moves that require disrupting flora to the degree that a mud fort does. That is all."
  4. The following is an extended copy of a message responding to criticism of "On the Topic of War- A Vikelan Citizen": "War is rarely just, and always bloody. I write today to speak of the war, not to mourn for it. But I have a question to anyone asking. Does Lurak's claims match their response? Let me ask all those reading this with knowledge of the war. Who. Struck. First? Who were the aggressors who stirred up such instability in the first place? Who drenched the earth with blood first? I will not give my answer, for that would disrespect Lurak, who as you know, are an honorable nation. Let me ask you, what has Vikela done that other nations haven't that justifies this war? Was it the tree? Was it the statue? Was it simply existing? But I do not speak to bring shame to Lurak, who as you know, are an honorable nation. I have also taken notice, that many who have taken the side of Lurak, who as you know, are an honorable nation, have stated their desires here to be wishing for the dissolution and death of the Vikelan people, and any who dare to show sympathy to such a dangerous nation, for Lurak as you know, are an honorable nation, who surely must have good reason to go to war." "To those who know Vikelans, not the country, but the people in it, do you know anything those people have done to warrant such violent death and displacement? Were the reasons for conflict stated by Lurak, who as you know, is an honorable nation, so vile and inhuman that it warranted such a violent stir against the Vikelan citizenry? Other nations can surely be said to be guilty of far worse. But then, does that mean that Lurak, who as you know, is an honorable nation, will show restraint on such charges greater and more terrible than Vikela's? If so, then Lurak, who as you know, are an honorable nation, would not be so honorable as to let themselves stand still when there is war to be fought! And to those who fear the rising threat of the darkspawn in the north, who have already shown that they are not content to stay trapped in the cold, dark regions of the world, does this war not interfere with our focus on such a dangerous threat to us all?" "To those who say they have no stake in this war, see it yourselves. Do not sit back and stay out without first truly knowing what is occurring in this war. There is rarely a war where the only people impacted are from the two nations fighting it, so let me ask the people of Aevos. Think of those who you know and care about who are impacted by this war. Think about what goods come from either nation involved, that make your days just a little bit better. Think about how such instability leads into further instability for far more people down the line. And now once again, think on the reasons given for launching this war." "IS. IT. JUST?" "Could there really have been no other response from Lurak, who as you know, are an honorable nation, than complete and total war to annihilate Vikela? For war, as you all know, is rarely just, and always bloody. To those who are unwilling to take a stance out of fear of being alienated, you are the ones who I shall not be afraid to shame here. It is one thing to not care, but to be unwilling to take a stance purely out of the fear of how others will react is cowardice of the most unconscionable degree. Those who stand while soil turns to sand will fall for anything of importance striking them from behind. Here lies the momentous issue of total war. Shall you stand still as its fires rage around you, so close to burning yet far away enough that you choose to ignore it as it spreads? IS THIS WAR SO JUST, YOU WOULD INVITE ANOTHER?" "But, of course, surely it would have to be, for it to be anything else would shame Lurak, who as you know, are an honorable nation. After all, the tree has been destroyed. Now their demands are only the simple ones of the destruction of all structures of Vikela, the banishment of all it's people from the southern region for one year's time, the destruction of a statue made in remembrance of a panda, reparations from Vikela and all other nations who oppose Lurak in any way, and the fall of Ubuntu. Surely these demands are not unreasonable in nature, for that would besmirch Lurak, which as you all know, are an honorable nation. After all, if they weren't, then it wouldn't matter what you think of Vikela. If they weren't an honorable nation, Lurak would be in the wrong here. They'd be the ones starting war over issues for which war is far too egregious and devastating a solution to want unless those issues weren't the real reason for war. But surely, this isn't the case, for Lurak is an honorable nation that has not done wrong to anyone yet...right?" (Posted this originally in the wrong topic. Reposted here)
  5. THE SIEGE OF UBUNTU "To the pitiful defenders of the siege at “The Tree of Five-Maehrnor”, your hallow walls have been brought asunder with but a few cannonballs and a singular ladder. This was your greatest fortress? How do you intend now to defend from our advance? Do you regret now spitting on the Sons of Krug? Hark, it is now in our grasp. Your Ubuntu… we only need to reach out and take it. From the ashes of your abominations will grow the largest flora in Aevos, your blood is only watering the ground of the returning Zag’hal of Zag’bal. Defend this Ubuntu for our warriors thirst for another battle, this siege did not sate desire; but know the longer you take to give in the more our demands will heighten." -Letter of Autarch Daahd’Lur to the defenders of the Castle Ubuntu. With this announcement, the REXDOM and its allies march to siege UBUNTU. The demands have changed. Any former allies of Vikela will remain neutral lest they provoke the wrath of Lurak and be forced to pay reparations. Remaining Allies of Vikela be warned- you will now pay the price of war. The REXDOM makes these demands which will be ceded in full or any peace will be denied: The removal of all structures built by Vikela. The replacement of the Queendom with stewards of the forest. The destruction of the daemon statue (it floats upon the waters without voidal intercession!) The destruction of the so-called tree of “five.” Accomplished. War Reparations from nations who oppose the just action of Lurak and prevent it from being a quick endeavor. War Reparations from the Vikelan Government to pay for the cost of War. The exile of Vikelans from the southern half of the continent for eternity effective one year after unconditional surrender. The Fall of Ubuntu. WARCLAIM: JUNGLE_PLATEU_10 (VASSAL_UBUNTU) WARGOAL: THE REMOVAL OF THE VIKELAN ENTITY IN SOUTHERN AEVOS.
  6. ISSUED AND CONFIRMED BY FIELD MARSHAL CERRICK FENIFAER VALLLO TOUJOU COURI VALLHIUW Declaration of Mobilization DECLARATION OF THE JUNTA In the next month, we shall experience the horrors of war. Many in the State of Vikela have not experienced war first hand, hearing stories of what occurred in the Coalition War of Braevos and the Southern Occupation of Nevaehlen. Thus, emergency measures must be taken in order to secure the stability of the State. THE TWO FOLLOWING ORDERS WILL GO INTO EFFECT IMMEDIATELY. MARTIAL LAW In the interest of that state and her security, the military will take control of the government and temporarily suspend certain rights in order to maintain stability throughout the realm. The rights suspended include freedom of speech against the State and her policies, This measure is enforced to maintain stability and prevent the spread of misinformation that may jeopardize national security and public order. Also the freedom of gathering without informing the local authority, and protests against the State. The freedom of gathering in groups larger than 4 without informing the military is limited in order to develop an emergency response. However, family meetings are exempt from this restriction, provided that a guard is called to ensure their safe return if they venture out.During this state of emergency, all public protests against the state are strictly prohibited due to their potential to incite civil unrest and Uncertainty. Offenders will face immediate and severe consequences. CONSCRIPTION As the State of Vikela prepares for its first war in modern history, it has become evident that our regiments suffer from inadequacies due to the reliance on untrained volunteers, akin to a common militia. To rectify this, it is imperative to enlist all able-bodied citizens in defense of our homeland. All able-bodied citizens are hereby obligated to register for military service in the upcoming Census. This draft is essential for bolstering our defenses and ensuring the safety of our realm. Citizens who wish to opt out of active military service may do so by paying an additional annual tax of 20 minas or participating in weekly monitored gathering trips for select materials, as decided by the militia. This contribution will aid in the provisioning and support of our new army. Upon enlistment, all recruits and current military personnel will undergo rigorous retraining under the guidance of Field Marshal Cerrick. The Field Marshal will evaluate each individual based on combat and leadership experience to determine new ranks and responsibilities. This decree shall be enforced immediately following the upcoming Census. Failure to comply with draft registration or tax obligations will result in penalties as determined by law. By implementing these measures, we aim to strengthen our military capabilities and ensure the defense of our State in these challenging times. MAY LIGHT GUIDE, Cerrick Fenifaer, Paladin of the Fallen Xan, Formerly of Khamees, Field Marshal of Vikela, Head of the Military Junta of Vikela
  7. Three years had passed since the initial declaration of Wahg. Three years of strife for the Concord of Coastal Companions. It began with the forging of the signature of the Lubba, and verbal abuse which caused the Serene State to withdraw. This act was followed shortly by the declaration of neutrality by Dunfarthing. It was the denial of peace which saw Vortice remove themselves from conflict. Call them cowards, call them 'backstabbers' but would you defend a so called 'ally' who neglects to defend themselves? Throw men and mina down the drain for a lost cause? Whatever the case, the Vikelans had ample time to prepare... The Orcish March waited. To the astonishment and wonder of the world who said: "Why do the Orcs not march upon them! Why do they not belittle them with savagery! Why?!" And the answer was simple. The Red Spirits. It was as with the declaration. The Great Shamans of Lurak went to the Lieutenants of the Four Great Red Spirits, the Blue Spirits, and asked them: "Shall we march, oh friends? The Green Spirits are with us! Oh Blue Spirits, wise in your opinion- why do we hold off on Wahg?" They replied. “DO NOT MARCH O' REX AND AUTARCH OF LURAK, DO MOT MARCH FOR YOU MUST WAIT. FOR IF YOU MARCH NOW YOU FACE THE CURSE OF THE SIXTY.” It was then the Shamans cried: "Oh the CURSE OF THE SIXTY! The Sickness of the Evil Spirits! Allies of Iblees they are! How can it be so that the Sixty (even after exile from the Spirit World) still vex us!" So they waited, and despite not knowing what this curse was they listened to the venerable BLUE SPIRITS, servants of the RED SPIRITS. And they were rewarded, a clear path was laid through what remained of the jungle and unassailed they began their siege. Even while freedoms were repressed in Vikela as was the way of the failed order of heretics. Wahg was upon the world once more.
  8. [!] This missive is posted within the Eastern and Southern regions of Aevos! [!] Artist rendering of a sunset in Vikela To the good soldier, Bon’Ox I am Field Marshal Cerrick, Formerly Cerrick of Khamees as a knight of the Aengul Xan (Janus in the worlds of Man.) There are a few facts regarding the matter of Lurin that I find important to disclose in order to clear this sticky situation we all find ourselves in. I will go over the accusations one by one in order to further make clear the predicament that has been created. On the matter of Darkspawn within Lurin, I can attest to this. I have multiple witnesses that claim that Lumia, former Silver Lubba of the Serene State of Lurin, was conspiring with Inferi to secure her state after losing the will of her people. If needs be, I will bring forth the witnesses as long as their protection can be assured. On the matter of Ferrymen within Lurin, I cannot attest one way or another to this. Rumors of their presence have always floated, though no true evidence has been brought forth to my knowledge or to the knowledge of those around my state. On the matter of the Horde’s participation, there is no threat to the Heartlands. The Orcish Hordes are busy indulging in conflict with my own, now allyless, state. The Oathbreaker Lumia Uialben ensured that no state with honorable rulers would ally themselves with the Serene State of Lurin after their disastrous diplomatic blunder. On the matter of Ser Gundanat, he is quite an honorable man. He seems to have the intelligence needed to restore Lurin’s honor, alongside the will to enact such. I will not speak ill of him as he has been nothing but kind, moreso willing to fight against the Long Dark that reaches across the continent than most others. He will be a fine Silver Lubba. Thus it is my recommendation to the Heartlands to press further investigation rather than war, as war brings nothing but destruction upon all that it touches. Glory is seen in the history books, but the impacts of war on the commonfolk oftentimes are not. Please, take this into consideration. MAY LIGHT GUIDE, Cerrick Fenifaer, Paladin of the Fallen Xan, Formerly of Khamees, Field Marshal of Vikela, Head of the Military Junta of Vikela
  9. A missive is silently spread about ISSUED ON 10th of Malin’s Welcome, 186 S.A. BY THE ⋆˙˳ ───────────────⊱༺⠀𓊝⠀༻⊰─────────────── ˳˙⋆ With the war looming over the Southern East Coast of Aevos and the violence that comes with it, The Queendom of Vikela has offered The Unified Domain of Vortice the option to withdraw from conflict with no repercussions, and with this option, the council has deliberated for many months, and has decided to withdraw from combat and take a stance of neutrality between The Rexdom of Lurak and The Queendom of Vikela. We shall offer a home to any displaced, as well as offer aid to the restoration of the Jungles regardless of the outcome of the war with our withdrawal. Vortice wishes to become a state of refuge and allow civilians of either realm to find safety within our walls. It is our hope that the two parties will soon come to terms with one another and allow harmony to return to Aevos. Until then, however, Vortice will welcome citizens from both realms so long as neither party disturbs our peace. ⋆˙˳ ───────────────⊱༺⠀𓊝⠀༻⊰─────────────── ˳˙⋆ The 10th Sovereign of the Depths, Monarch of the United Domain of Vortice, Lenora Jusmia Monarch-Consort of Vortice, Gusiam Jusmia Department Head of Internal and Foreign Affairs, Aerith Maelstorm Minister of Defense, John O’Riley ⋆˙˳ ───────────────⊱༺⠀𓊝⠀༻⊰─────────────── ˳˙⋆
  10. [!] This was address to all of Lurin. Quill to paper. Nothing fancy expect for a signature. We stand united. We stood united. Yet there is a chance to stay united. A treaty signed by peace, and to keep each other safe that was the promise that was made. A promise Is like the illusions one tries to glamour themselves with. At the end of the day the mask has to fall and true colors must be shown. It greatly disappoints Vikela the actions that have shown such. But with such actions truth shall be shed to light. It is with much displeasure I bring to the world what actually happened that night since you do not have the dignity to tell your own people. That night before the notice was posted, you were made of aware of what was going on. All the coastal leaders were made aware of the turmoil in the south. There was much to discuss and time to do it. Amongst those that were told whether through letter or Chatter, The golden Lubba, Mika was told, for if not all those we trusted wouldn’t have been told. Mikas has always been a friend and will always stay a friend to Vikela, for many reasons. How it happened I do not know fully , I can only speculate what happened within your own council chambers. But I must picture that it came down with Mika holding the quill out to you. To honour your word to the people you signed a pact with. To honour your word, but what is a word but just the weight of ink on paper? I have to wonder if you valued the meanings from the beginnings? Yet did you even have honour in your heart? I must ask these questions to myself to understand how it all went wrong. Logically it makes no sense. Trade is your biggest asset. You, make deals and pacts and trade. But a merchant who can’t keep his word is nothing but a swindler, no better than a bandit giving false promises and abandoning the deal. I personally thought you were better than that, Lumia. We, Vikela, forged an agreement together, and you know you signed that parchment. The letter couldn't have come back to us without that signature. If there was forgery, it was with in your chamber, not our actions. I simply lay bare what you pointed at us. Forgery? Your jests of are from anything but funny. Forgery of lies, perhaps. I can’t fault you for running from danger—that is basic instinct. But it takes those cut from a different cloth to stand taller. I will no longer address you directly, I much would no longer even wish to know who you were , are and will be, because it will not go down in history. Instead, I speak to your people, whom I have come to know these past months. They are cut from that different cloth. To the people of Lurin, the fighters, the dreamers, those who keep their word, I do not believe you wish to end this fight, not where it’s been left. Many of you followed your leaders into battle for peace of mind. If you wish to depart now, then perhaps all my words and thoughts were in vain, but I can understand the value of one’s life, to protect all that holds dear.But I believe there is more here than meets the eye. There are still fighters among you who wish to uphold the alliance forged in companionship. To you, I say stay. Continue to fight. Keep the resistance alive and give Vikela one final stand. At the end of this era, it is companionship that brought Vikela together, and it is companionship that will keep it. I implore you, join the fight, as friends as companions. Will you stand and fight as you did in the beginning, or will you run back in the city? For those who wish to continue to fight, there will be a place within vikela for you take shelter in. Either choice is yours to make and there will be no further judgement on your actions , as they are your own. But I shall warn you only what I know to be true, from dealing with Krugmar and Orc diplomancy as a whole for the past three hundred years. The orcs know you fear them now. The orcs knows you just betrayed an ally, and know at least Lumia is an oathbreaker, and if we, Vikela falls, who’s to say they will stop at us? The choice is yours. Sincerely, Andria Rosalis
  11. UBUNTU MUST FALL THE DEMANDS OF LURAK “You admonish the land, you tear down the ancient trees, you annihilate all life and replace it with its twisted contort. The Shamans say the Spirit Freygoth and Zagbal are angered by the ruination of the jungle, the destruction.” The demands were set for the “Queendom of Vikela,” demands that many saw as too light a sentence for the desolation. "Remove your castles surrounding the capital and attempt to reforest the ancient land which lay scarred and barren; desolated." These demands were denied in council where it was brought to them upon the dissolution of the Confederation. With these demands denied there lay no pathway open to saving the jungle but through war and the replacement of old stewards with new. So it is that with confirmation of the REX and the AUTARCH, LURAK DECLARES AN OPEN STATE OF WAR UPON THE FALSE QUEENDOM OF VIKELA, VIKELA IS TO BE REMOVED FROM THE JUNGLES BY FORCE AND EXILED HENCEFORTH FOREVER. With this announcement, the REXDOM and its allies place themselves in opposition to Vikela and its allies and marches upon them. If Vikela’s allies abandon them to their desolation in their daemon worship, no harm will come to those who lay down arms. The REXDOM makes these demands which will be ceded in full or peace will be denied: The removal of all structures built by Vikela. The replacement of the Queendom with stewards of the forest. The destruction of the daemon statue (it floats upon the waters without voidal intercession!) The destruction of the so-called tree of “five.” Stipends from nations who oppose the just action and prevent it from being a quick endeavor. The permanent exile of the Vikelans from the jungle they destroyed. The Fall of Ubuntu. WARCLAIM: JUNGLE PLATEU 3: THE TREE OF FIVE. WARGOAL: THE REPLACEMENT OF THE DAEMON WORSHIPPERS WITH STEWARDS OF THE FOREST, THE ANNHILATION OF THE VIKELAN DESOLATION. IE: CONQUEST AND SUBSEQUENT TRANSFER FROM LURAK.

  23. Vikelain or Silachian Silachian is a mixture of Elvish and Auvergian. It has a sort of southern flare on top of that. For a more OOc dive, Silchian is a mixture of Lotc Eleven mixed with Lousiana Creole. From deep avuergene roots as well as wood elven ties to the community With this base, it creates a softer, more elegant sounding language with a tone that sounds like water rushing. Rather than more earthy tones, there should be hardly any guttural or rough words used within Silachian. History and Synopsis The words of the sword are translated as Silachin in the language of the protected people. From its founding family, one auvergne & Farfolk woman and one Wood elf, these phrases are both fluid like a swing and sharp to the tongue.. It is interesting to note that the founding couple frequently transitioned between these linguistic influences, which led to a momentous event when a human observer inadvertently interchanged the two terms. This serendipitous mistake has endured through the passage of time. Today, Silachian has become an integral part of the linguistic heritage of Vikela. It can be heard echoing through the streets of Vikela, where it is cherished as a language that is not only well-known but also passed down through generations, embodying a unique and enduring fusion of linguistic traditions. Definition: Auvergnian, interchangeably known as Auvergnat by those who are fluent in it, is a well-known human language. The dialect is famous throughout the various realms of Oren and Aeldin for being crowned the "Language of Love". Auvergnian is a soft, melodic, and yet arguably very complex dialect. Auvergnian is the same as real-life French. Definition: Elvish This language, known as Ancient Elven, was developed by the children of Malin after their establishment in Aegis and was used widely in the ancient world. Grammar For those of you want to fully immerse yourselves. Sentence Order: The common order of elvish sentences is Subject-Object-Verb. The apostrophe-’ : Used in certain cases and possibly dictates a certain pronunciation. Current known uses are: Denoting certain honorifics (such as sainted) Between a modifier and a verb Between a word and its suffixes (more on this below). With the word 'eyha' (and) to connect sentences and in terms of a list. -n makes such a word a noun -an plural AFFIXES & SUFFIXES Use of affixes: This has been shown to be a very important factor in Elven language. Elves tend to use multiple affixes to further define their nouns and verbs, rather than using separate words. For these, the following rules exist: Most affixes seem to have two forms, depending on whether or not the word it relates to ends or begins with a vowel. Suffixes often get added with an apostrophe between it and the word. If a word has multiple suffixes, there will only be an apostrophe between the full word and its last suffix. The priority for ordering the suffixes is least important to most important. So your root word is closer to the most important suffix. If a suffix is separated by an apostrophe, it inflects as if the last letter of the word it relates to was a consonant. -é Makes it past tense, for example: burn - bril / burnt - brilé -s makes it present continuous, -s is followed by the Simple Present word’s vowel, for example: Pèdi - miss / Pedé - missing / Pèdis - Missing Adding “Will - Te” will make the sentence future tense, as the verb does not need a special addition. For example:“Mo te anwo twa ne’pleure…zusna.” - “I will not cry over you...*******.” :) “Burn *****!” “Sluzes Bril!” FAMILY AND PEOPLE Mamon: Mom Malda: Dad Sèsa: Sister Bresen: Brother Tonton: Uncle Tant: Aunt Nès: Niece Nef: Nephew Gra’Malda: Grandpa Gra'Mama: Grandma Numbers un, in - one Dé - two trò, trwa - three Kat - four Sink - five Sis - six Sèt - seven Wit - eight Nèf - nine Dis - ten mu'dis - 100 te'ludis-1000 Much like the grammatical structure, numbers are structured similarly to elvish for double digits and beyond (i.e three-onehundred-five-ten-four). ' is used to link a number with its value for 10, 100 and 1000. Adding the Mu- (very) to add to the beginning of a number to make it ma-single point value. ( Values of Ten). Example Mukat'dis (40,) Musis'dis (60) MuNèf'dis (80). Examples So 14 (fourteen) is Dis'kat [10.4] 40 (forty) is Mukat'dis [10.4] 174 is Mudis'musetdis'kat [100.70.4] COMMON PHRASES & SENTENCES Bonayla! - Hello Heyalez afær? - How are things? heya ça va? - How are you doing?

This was such a fun project to head with the lovely people of Vikela. We orgianzied this is a way we thought made more sense. We recommend you have your sentence, and then move it to subject object verb so you have a clear understanding. Most Vikelian will only be using common phrases rather then full sentences.

  25. A Melody Must Have an End How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard. The flood of memories rushes by, giving one last adieu “Oh! My little butterfly!” a Voice came, my dearest aunt “Come give Aunty a hug” My earliest memory by far, the woman always came running over with that big childish grin of hers and would swoop me into her arms just as she did now but as she got to me the scene changed. “Grandmama?...” My grandmother passed away and my mother was struck by grief. I had stayed with my aunt for a long time, so long, and my mother followed not long after, my father was never around. I was left alone, or so I thought. “Look what I've brought for you! It's your favourite, but don't tell your mother” Sweets were held in front of me by my dearest aunt, a woman who never let her smile fall in front of me, it was infectious indeed, I was not much of a people person at all, but looking back at it I missed out on a lot, and now all I have is regrets on not trying to do more with my life while I had the chance “It's alright, you alright, things will get better soon” My last memory came to play, my aunt hugging me while we were in our darkest hours. Falling into complete utter oblivion, My eyes slowly fell due to my attacker's actions, but it wasn't all bad, I got to see the birds fly one last time before nothingness. Greyed skin and life taken by force, a body was found under the gate arch of Vikela, this body was unfamiliar to most, but to those who knew the woman, to Medea who found the young woman she was almost unrecognisable Melody de Astrea, she was drained of all blood, with two puncture wounds upon her neck an obvious attacker. However, that did not seem to be the killing blow. Whether or not this was the work of one person or if there was someone else to give the final kill would never be known, From the look of her dissected body it seemed as if someone had studied it like she was someone's science project, she did not at all look like her former self anymore, and the only thing left behind by the sick attacker was a note simply saying. “Thank you for participating” As if it had been all but a game to them, maybe to taunt the deceased loved ones more Melody de Astrea had not lived a long fulfilling life, before this horrid day, she had already been withering away from poor health, her time had already been approaching but it seemed someone had plans to bring her demise much, much sooner. For she had been expecting her demise due to her health a singular letter had already been written to whom she cared for most, to who had looked after her, but sadly this letter had never been finished Dearest aunt Medea You looked after me like I was your own, and for such I can't thank you enough, our fates intertwined from my birth, I would have felt so lost if you had left me alone, being born as your niece had been the greatest treasure to me, to be able to grow and follow you, you shaped my life, but if my time does come to pass by, I wish you to know to look to the skies in hopes a bird flies by, I watched from the window as the birds flew by gliding through the shadows of the clouds up in the sky, I've laid my memories and dreams upon their wings, and in my dearest memories, I see you reaching out to me, and if I should leave this lonely world behind I hope for you to only carry on and remember that… [!] the letter incomplete one would never know what the dying woman had been trying to say at the end of her letter to her aunt. [!] With her Body now buried Melodies of life now gilded forever more amongst the winds of time. Sleep well little butterfly, Melody de Astrea
