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.


Stars can be lots of different colors.

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.

You wouldn't say D1 is more pymlithe? I've never noticed a pink description, just silver. :)

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
A1,  C1, B13, D7  (BINGO!)

Salt-yellow,  Salt-purple,  Salt-green

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.
