Yeah, i kinda know that feeling :) Well if you're very found of the sound of Kairula (as you indeed would be), you could perhaps just enter a visual change – either a pronunciation-unchanging spelling modification ("Kayrula", "Kirula"), or doubling the 'r' or the 'l', having a double 'o' for the sake of exotism, or heck, even those lovely alien apostrophes :D – consider "K'irula" or "Kairul'la" or various others on the same ideas ;)

Some good ideas there, Ximero. Thanks. Smile
Oh, and I forgot to say – congratulations on graduating. Smile

Things I noticed on your Wiki:

On Human's History, 711 AD, when you wrote about the Moors u didn't finish the sentence (the name they gave to their new home)… I readed it whole now, with the updates and everything (last time I just readed part of it… yeah I'm lazy -.- )… just a thought; I imagine those "random portals" to be generated on purspose by some higher beings, maybe following a plan or something… I assume you're ahead of me on this one, but I mention it just in case… seems acordingly to a world like the one u're creating… this plan may be made by a native race of Kairul'la (I liked the spelling Ximero suggested) or maybe an extrakairulean race…
Another thing, when you talk about "born lupi" u say that they are born from a human mating with a dragon, but u said before that humans and dragons couldn't mate, that it was done by Kairul'la's magic (I'm not sure 'bout with this one, maybe it's just my lack of a better understanding of english… maybe I'm taking the second "mate" the wrong way by giving the same meaning the first one have, idk)

Anyway, I like Kairula's background a lot, it'll turn out as a real deep plot at the end, I'm sure of it! …I will be following your updates, and try to make a contribution (or none if you don't want to ,lol) : )

Thanks, Kaylin :)
Oh, and – of course -__- – *fond and *exoticism (though "exotism" is also a word :p)

@Zerogarth, that sentence there about the Moors isn't finished because she is yet to come up with a satisfying name for the land, methinks.

@Zerogarth:
- That sentence isn't finished because I forgot to save. -_-
- Random portals are called that for a reason – they're random. There isn't anyone controlling them. They're the unintended side effect of something that happened aeons ago, which no-one living knows anything about.
- Lupi can mate with each other – it's only the first ones that were human/dragon pairings. They also marry humans and elves. Most lupi are less than 10% dragon, for reasons that will become clear later.
- I always welcome contributions, whether they are questions, suggestions, criticisms, or even just saying "I like it"!

hehe I knew u were ahead of me on the random portals, and liked the explanation… one can only speculate or try to put the pieces together, I like the mistery, it spices the story : P …the other things I mentiond were just in case u didn't noticed (though I think I just misunderstood the born lupi thing… I'm working on my english as much as I can so that won't happen too often xD)

oh, n I'm always willing to make questions, suggestions, to critic and speak my mind, lol. I'll try to give all the productive feedback I can : P

PROGRESS UPDATE:
Added a section on Dhampirs to the Vampire section of the "Lupi and Vampires" page.
Fixed some links on the "Lupi and Vampires" page
Added a subsection on Physical empathy to the section on Mind magic on the "Human Magic" page.
Added a section on Uses of Magic to the "Human Magic" page, which is still nowhere near finished.

Hadn't read the "Human Magic" section before… thought I readed everything hmmm… anyway, I think its awesome, the way you describe stuff makes it really engaging, gives an amazing feel of depth, which I assume its actually not just a feel, it seems that u really make a reflection on the aspects of Kairula before going on with the next new thing! really good job, and nice update btw!

…hey, I really wanna do a remake of the main image on the wiki, the one with the planet and its satelites, can I try doing something? I mean, u'll decide to use it or toss it away, so I guess there's no crime on trying, right? : P (at this moment I'm wondering if u would like to use material made by other users, specifically for your wiki? or just your own original artwork?)

Zerogarth, I'd love to have images by other artists to use on my wiki. I've already asked ams about using his remake of my King Arthur character, and he said it was OK, so he's going on there as soon as I create the appropriate page. If you want to remake one of my pictures, that's great! I was planning to re-do that picture anyway at some point, but I'd love to see what you come up with. Smile

here it goes!

Kirula-1.png

I tried to stick to the original idea, just played with the satelites position (hence the change in size) added some effects and put a little lighting… I'm not sure about the sunlight, maybe its too strong (I don't remember reading how close was Kairula to its sun)… hope you like it enough to put it on the wiki : P if not, that's fine too… it was fun remaking it : )

(voted on the poll, I think you should do the map first)

cheers! ^ ^

PROGRESS UPDATE:
Changed the picture on the homepage to Zerogarth's generously provided improved version.
Added some info to the "Eosi" page and a link to that page on "Races of Kairula".
Replaced the Stone age cave picture on "History of the Dragons" with a better version and added some more of the story.

wow, its there already! : P I'm really glad you liked it! : ) (btw, I would love to do requests, I have more fun doing requests because they don't demand me creating stuff from scratch, hence I go right into de colorful part that is heromachining it, wich is more suited to the amount of free time I have, lol …if you ever want me to do something, just ask away!)

about the updates, I'm liking the Eosi, its a preatty neat concept! I think you should do a little more backround on them later… as how they relate to the other races during their stay on Kairula… and maybe a little more backround on their past; how their planet was, why they left it, and stuff like that… (I know you're just starting with them, but in my opinion, adding those things should be the first thing you do when you go back to them… just a thought)

…oh, and the stone age cavern its looking better!

keep up the good work! : )

Hmm…could you work from a description? Or would you need a picture?

FRM and Zerogarth, take a look through the pages. If you see a note saying "picture coming soon", go for it. Also, I'd like someone to make me a replacement Fenris (Lupi and Vampires page).

Thanks for the compliments, guys.
