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.

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.

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.

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.

Yeah, the Athan sun was a red giant because of a bunch of halfing sorcs trying to harness the power of the sun or something like that, and that's why Athas was a desert planet.

I saw a rose today that reminded me of pymlithe, possibly wrongly. Pale glowingly yellow center surrounded by white petals with pink tips. Would say A1 and C1 could both be described as a pymlithe hue.

Sorry for double posting, but...



Totally makes me think of pymlithe.

And this, for the bark/wood:



So, D1 for wood and A1, C1 for the blooms. Maybe even B1.

boog beat me to it, but I definitely think pymlithe should be D1.  References to pymlithe as a color in game are references to the color of the wood unless otherwise stated (and I don't think I've ever seen a reference to the color of the blooms).

Pymlithe should definitely be D1.  Please!

These are some great color descriptions. I can see these being of use in a lot of rp.

One caveat I must mention is the use of stones to reference color. I only see Emerald and Jade being used so far, and while emeralds are a form of beryl with specific impurities which make them green (the word originates from a Hebrew word meaning "green"), jade can come in a great variety of colors (historically, white jade has been particularly prized in China). This is true for many stones which are categorized by properties other than color, such as diamond, garnet, topaz, and all the stunning varieties of quartz (flint, agate, onyx, citrine, amethyst, carnelian, and jasper are all forms of quartz).

Even emerald, green by definition, has had some misuse due to other colors of beryl being marketed to raise the perceived value. (Google "pink emerald")

My point: Very few stones are actually named for their color, and the nature of mineral composition means that a crystal of any sort could form with impurities that alter the color dramatically.

Some of them look like "salt" colors to me (like that grainy grey/white added to it)

So, like

Once this is filled in, what's the chances this gets added to the website, with an on_hover box with color names?  So, I could hover my mouse over a color, and get a popup box with the color name in it.

That would be pretty easy to set up, honestly... could even add in some whiter shades of pale.

I'd do it in a snap, but I dunno where I'd host it.

In my opinion, E-12 is very clearly the color of Basalt
Being rather grey in appearance, with a hue of blue mixed in.

[Edit]: Flint maybe something akin to a slightly paler A-13 ?

Indigo and Cobalt were mentioned. Are there references to these colors in game already?
Since one is a Terran plant and the other a metal, I just wanted to make sure before adding them.
I believe I've gotten everyone else's suggestions undated.
If anyone disagrees, feel free to argue.


Staff, would it be alright for someone to post or PM me snippets of plant/stone/animal descriptions where there is a disagreement?

P.S. Please do not PM asking for the index. I am not handing it out. I will only give snippets.

Problem being that the color map we have now doesn't have a whole lot of... Well, colors. The first thing I have on the list - Agastakee - is a dull brown-green. There is nothing like that on the map. I mean, I could just find images of every color I think matches and post it next to the name of the pl... Right, well, I'll be back in a few hours.

There are tons of color charts that are better than the one posted, which is very limited, for example:



This one is nice because it has the neatly numbered grid...


But there is also:











Which could all be easily made into numbered charts... I'd be willing to do that.

I'm going to send in a request about this first. I want to make sure posting the names of these plants isn't going to piss anyone off. If you see a post here in the near future from me, assume it's been approved.

I like this one. Everyone else good with starting over?

Would someone else like to volunteer to keep it up if so?

That's not even counting the ones with no color anywhere in their descriptions, or plants that have vague color identifiers like such as 'pale' and such that can't properly be placed. Also the handful of plants I don't have.

I haven't gone through all the pages in this thread, but I have a question, possibly a favor to ask.

I see that you guys are using letter-number codes to reference colors. I am blind, so a-1, b-14, etc, mean nothing to me. Dark purple? light purple? medium purple? purplish-pink, blue-violet, etc, would be extremely helpful for me in terms of matching descriptive words with color names rather than codes.

Has this been done someplace, in text, and could I access it? Is it something that could be done just in list form?

Something like:

dark purple
Kadian purple

Instead of a chart/table?

It looks like the page that was hosting the A-X color chart got deleted.  Let me see what I can do with the simpler charts that were out there.
