Color helpfiles
« on: September 27, 2014, 05:19:14 PM »
Players could get together and write helpfiles on colors, so people could be able to 'help blue' and see that blue is a color commonly associated with several merchant and noble houses, has a few superstitions regarding blue plants to be good luck because of their association with water, and things like that. 'help red' 'help yellow' 'help green'.

What do you guys think? I can edit and organize the top post here for information that we put here.
My thoughts.

I'll start with a draft for green.  Critiques required.


Green is not a common color in most parts of the Known World.  In farming areas, such as those around Allanak and Red Storm East, the fields are only green for a brief period after planting.  Some view the color with distrust, associating it with the strange and unfamiliar or even the dangerous unknowns of the Grey Forest.  Others appreciate the color for its association with life-giving plants, or value the exotic appearance of green dyes and gems.  Black and jade-green are the colors of Allanak, where the color often represents the city's government and military.  Green is used to represent the houses Fale, Kasix, and Valika, while Winrothol uses jade-green.  Bards of the Rusarla circle have green lemniscate tattoos.

   EDIT:  Aren't there some common green fruits and such?  What color is a kalan?
Got you covered.
