Zalanthan Color Charts
« on: March 03, 2010, 12:32:56 PM »
I was thinking of compiling a Zalanthan color chart over the next two weeks or so.

If anyone would like to jump in and help, please post a color swatch coordinate and an appropriate name.
Any name used for a color should be available in a help file (cunyati-brown for example) or be something that is common earth knowledge (amber-orange or granite-gray).

If you disagree with a choice, by all means speak your piece and offer a better name for the swatch or a better coordinate for the name.



PS: if someone can find a better chart that has some kind of coordinate system, post it as well.

Of course!

Now then, A-1 seems is the kind of color I see when I think of a gortok.

It's a euphemism for "dung-brown."

Having a color chart where everything is related to something in game would be dual purpose.  
1. Could help you describe things. 2. Could help everyone memorize and visualize what things look like.

I've always thought Jihae templar red to be more B6, and Jihae moon to be more sort of 1.5, less color than B2, but more than B1.

Thank you!! I'll be happy to help with this. In fact if you guys can figure out all the arm plants and things that correspond with the colors I'll do it up pretty on photo shop.

G8 = Allanaki green?
C1=      Pymlithe
G14= Kolh

I'd leave azure, cerulean, emerald, sapphire, crimson and the others we see commonly used in the game left alone.

and true Jade is F9

Edit) I'd be more helpful if I had better knowledge of Arm's plant life. Pigments are often named for the plants and flowers that share their color.

Isn't Allanaki green suppose to be jade?  I don't have a clue personally?

from the pic of the Allanak flag it looks like the cross is a deeper green rather than Jade.  I always assumed they used jade (the stone) to make the jewelry like the jade crosses and so on as the rock is naturally a green. But on clothing and the flag they used a deeper green dye.  Therefore you could have true Jade (like the stone) and then Allanaki green , like the green shade used on the flag on the website (shrugs)

Allanaki Green IS Jade. (Hence the Jade Sabers, Jade Cross, etc.) And real JADE would be closer to F9, I'll agree.

Personally, I CRINGE at "allanaki Green, Kadian Purple" because it's not something you see everyday.

I would call B5 something more like "blood red," or "Crimson" because to me Suk-Krath (the sun) would have more of an orangish tint to it since it is a ball of fire, and fire is (by and large) orange.

A-10 or A-6 - Suk Krath Red (or Orange?)

I'll agree with D8 for Azure.

As a helper, you can punch in a color in google, OR, go to wikipedia and punch in "blue (color)" and you'll get all sorts of shades.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azure_%28color%29

So, here's some ideas for what else cold be filled in:
- dusky
- midnight / ebon / ravon / pitch / jet - Probably all the same thing, right along with "Khol"
- cunyatti
- agafari
- baobab
- sepia
- umber
- cerise (french for "red", see's some rare usage.)
- cerulean
- steel
- chestnut
- earthy

Mostly darks and browns. We may have to mix and match a bit. Pull out some colors we don't claim and swap them for others we find useful. As I said, wikipedia is an EXCELLENT resource. Check the link.

C12 - Horta
Always pictured horta as a deep purple-tinged black, sort of like eggplant black.

I don't at all agree with your designation for Jihae red.

I would say it is B-7.  It's the blood moon, not the pureed salmon moon.

I also don't agree with Suk-Krath Red.  Suk-Krath color should be like A-8 or A-9.

Editted to add:  You sunk my battleship.
