Hellesan colours :
...dn't have the concept of grey-brown or brown as we know it today: darker shades were considered within black together with most shades of blue, while lighter browns, like ochre or copper, were considered shades of red or yellow. That's the reason why in Iscanian myths about the Gagant wars sources talk about «the blood-coloured earth» or «Lämnarott sheep, with their fur like the colour of the sea».
    Concerning Perans ancient sources often talk about the colour of certain...

The alternate history :
The basic idea is to rearrange history so that Thebes and not Athens becomes the dominant cultural power by the fourth century BCE.

One of the primary reasons why Athens becomes the dominant power in this period is their leading rôle in the second Persian war. So from this the idea arises to tweak the Persian War so that Thebes plays a leading rôle instead.

This runs a huge risk, of course, of being either very tricky, or very tacky. Besides of course "what if the Nazis won...

Red, Gold, Blue, Black (in field description):
...o register with the Consortium, but by no means do they have to join it as an agent - a breath of fresh air compared to the oppression, press-ganging, and even hunting down they face in the rest of the world. This is why there are two Gold values. In Crowsgrave, supers can just be people. Outside of it, they either submit to chains or fight for their lives.

Of course, even registration is too much for some, who may reasonably fear what such things might lead to, given the state o...

...he island, it has the nickname of "the ass-end of Crowsgrave". Donkey Lagoon also has a history of association with criminals, as the smell of the place made it easy to hide corpses, which is probably the main reason why it hadn't been paved over by the 20s - the powerful criminals liked their convenient corpse-hideaway. After the cleanup, the Lagoon remained due to the sentimentality of tradition, and governmental inertia. Later, environmentalists would also push to keep it around, as it...

... you?"), is very rude. More appropriate would be a full greeting, introduction of himself, and then request for the old man's name. He also uses several interjections that imply impatience or whining ([i]yíííb[/i] is something like "maaaaaan" or "whyyyyyyy"). The long strings of supporting/SR clauses when describing him dunking his face in the spring to guzzle down water (line 17), and later stuffing his face with fruits (lines 54 and 56) also imply a sort of breathless quick succession o...
