May Plans and April Reflections

30 April, 2010

May or Maius in Latin, which the Roman poet Ovid says  is named for the maiores, Latin for elders, or it might have been named after the Greek goddess Maia, who is associated with Spring.  So, shall I stay with Spring and the Fey for May?  Perhaps with a few of the major players, representing the elders, described for the Sea of Stars?  What would people like to see?

April was a fairly productive month.  In the design Journal we saw:

Articles

Languages in the Sea of Stars and RPGs, how do the characters communicate in game.

The Otherworld Lands of the Sea of Stars, the fey-like realms and other such places.
