@DialMforMara Ohhh, that is good...
That sounds blue/black to me? Like the thematic equivalent of appalachia?
Could be. I picked those colors because it's a military thing here. Has Onumbrica had wars since Lotusseed and the Metro took over?
Wherever you put it, it'll be hilarious to have a town called Lest We Forget where no one remembers what it was named for
(Maybe it was in one of the library books?)
Canadian military holiday discussion, poli
@DialMforMara Onumbrica hasn't had any official wars. There've been Pinkertons-style violent suppression of workers and farmers by Sheriffs. But the Senate has been very explicit that those don't count.
@ajanionthespot so might it be named for an early rebellion that no one remembers anymore? Or something that happened before the Cyclone?
Would Narwayeh know the history of place names? Or is that something to ask Firiel about?
@DialMforMara It'd certainly be worth asking them both.
@ajanionthespot if we do go to Lest We Forget, I’ll absolutely ask what the residents were supposed to not forget.
@ajanionthespot which reminds me: does Firiel know about things that happened between the Cyclone and the construction of the telemancy system?
@DialMforMara That's a good question...
The cloud forms don't seem to be able to perceive time clearly or linearly. It's possible that she saw events in the Cyclone-to-Telemancy period, but not in an order that makes sense. It might be like trying to recall a very complicated dream that you swear made sense while you were having it but on waking is nonsense.
@DialMforMara She could learn about those events now, if they got discussed on or near a telemancy line. But that wouldn't help for things that nobody nowadays knows about.
