Puteulanus Astrum

Post  Mimodo on Mon Jan 30, 2012 6:04 am

As an idea for the main hall, instead of a skylight, we can put in the Puteulanus Astrum, or blue star.

This will be a massive blue gem (lapis blocks) in the roof of the dome, with gold blocks spotted throughout. The great centrepiece of our civilisation. It also gives us something to do with all that lapis Smile other people liked the idea, what does everyone else think?

Sounds like an awesome goal. I'm all for it. Did some searching online and about all I found were blog posts or courses on Latin. I'm now curious where this is from.

Isidar mithrim... From eragon. We chose a name for it, then translated to Latin to give the awesome name.

But the idea was from eragon originally

Shouldn't we come up with something original instead of stealing things from movies? o.o

Screw the movie! This is from the book... And it's a similar idea, not the same... And I'd rather not have a skylight, as we have one for the farms

We have farms?

We don't need to make a skylight, but let's come up with something on our own. =P

You do realise that that isn't the name of the Sapphire in the books, we got the idea from Isidar Mithrim but we decided to make up a different name, I think we should still have a skylight circling around the crystal, it would be nice to see sunlight.

Isn't Puteulanus Astrum a bit too wordy?

I'm pretty sure that it's rather bad Latin. And if we're gonna use bad Latin, let's at least use bad Latin that doesn't sound so close to the Spanish word for "Prostitute".

How about the Astrum Ceruleum? It means Sky Blue Star rather than simply Blue Star, and at least has the right non-adjective order.

I did study it for 3 years in school. My sister studied it for 9, I'll double-check with her over dinner tonight.

Apparently the proper term is "Stella Caerulia".

If we are going for latin, do we want to get the Latin name for our city??? Or give it a name in Latin?

"Civitas Nanos" would be "Dwarven City", I think. Probably got the endings wrong though.

Mountain Home should translate to Mons Domus. I like the sound of that.

I had an idea for the main dome.

What if we put in a wide carpet and line the carpet with jack o lanterns. they provide light and remove the need for all the torches on the floor.



The pumpkins give the rug a sort of finished tassel edge look.

The idea could work with any color wool

I like that idea. The first dyed sheep were red, so as to enable a red carpet in the Throne Room eventually. But we'll soon have plenty of wool, and we already have plenty of pumpkins for jackolanterns.

That looks really really nice, and makes me want some ice cream. I think Bren said carpets and stuff don't fit into our theme though, other than in the throne room.

I don't think I like the Jack O' Lanterns but I do like the Idea of a path lined with Light.

It's a col looking thing, and a great idea for the lighting, but does it really fit with the dwarven theme? This is supposed to be an underground city of stone, not fancy coloured wools and pumpkins :p (that's a little smartass there, don't be offended
