Re: Scalvoris Curses!

"Well, you're about as welcome as a flying turd!"

It originates in Egilrun because that is where the Scalvwing Steeds originate and are most common. It refers to...well...their turds. You would say it when encountering a person/animal/ghost/spirit/being that you *really* do not want to see or deal with. Essentially that person is as welcome in your presence as a Scalvwing Steed's turd would be if it dropped on your head from above.

"Flying turds!"

This is a shortened version of the above curse which essentially means something along the lines of "Aw, crap!" but would be said in the same circumstances.

Re: Scalvoris Curses!

1. "She's a real Nellie." - A man describing a woman, though it isn't strictly gender bound.

The term originated in Almund (and has remained relatively local) after the discovery that Madame Nellie was the one attacking her own girls. It is now a term used to describe an individual who is deplorable and untrustworthy, or more commonly it acts as a replacement for the term for a female dog.

2. "Go chew sand." - A phrase to dismiss someone you dislike.

A term that originated in Almund due to the higher crime rates, this term is used similarly to "F(censored) off" due to the large presence of sand and the unpleasant taste of it.

Visible Mutations/ Marks

Mutations
Defiance: Skin always glows faintly and he is warm to the touch. His is also the center of a field of static electricity so people get shocked touching him on occasion.
Rupturing: Orange etheric cracks spider-web up his arms to his elbows. His eyes and the glowing cracks going down his cheeks glow dark blue.
Transmutation: He has a series of emerald, glowing cracks on his right pectoral.
Marks
Bellinos: His fingernails are always black. The color fades into his fingers.
Celarion: A dim glowing ring surrounds his left forearm.
Palenon: A silver lightning shaped mark about the size of a hand stretching up towards his torso.

Scars

  • Oops, Oops, Ouch: Balthazar Black has twenty scars across his back from a lashing as well as scars on his hands and arms from jagged rocks on Faldrass. There are two scars on the sides of his abdomen from being stabbed and a slash across his back which blends in with the whip scars.

Re: Scalvoris Curses!

"Treid's bile!"

This term originated from seafarers around Scalvoris Island - particularly those who traveled the Hollow Sea and were familiar with Treid's Mouth and Treid's Teeth. A common exclamation, it is primarily used as a profanity, but it is also used by sailors to describe the approach of bad weather, leviathans, and pirates. In such circumstances, it is implied that Treid is spitting bile at the ship.



"U'frek's scorn!"

Also a common profanity, in circumstances of misfortune on the seas, it is implied that U'frek is heaping his scorn upon the sailors.

Re: Scalvoris Curses!

Scalvoris Saying


King's Piss

A nod to Scalvoris history and the Pirate King himself, this is a exclamation of disbelief, or something to denote a shocking situation. Sometimes used in similar fashion to "when pigs fly", or "piss off", etymologists believe it may have evolved from fear or shock felt in the aftermath of the angered pirate lord, i.e "The [pirate] king is pissed" and was later adapted into every trial life. Scalvoris citizens will often elongate this saying in a number of customized ways, commonly to their personal preference or region (see Example II).

Example

A: "I won."

B: "No, you didn't!"

A: "Yes, I did!"

B: "Oh, king's piss!"

Example II

A: It's true! It had nothing to do with the nel! She says she loves me and we're to be married.

B: (Laughing in disbelief) Yeah, when kings piss for dead men.

"Tio's lying trap."

1.) Named for the Immortal of Curses, who is sometimes known for his unpredictable duplicity. Or his penchant for dramatic exaggerations that mislead the subject.

Re: Player Submitted Scalvoris Curses!

"Nothing more than fish shit"

Common saying amongst sailors and likely borrowed from the Biqaj, it's used as a crude insult that equates the individual(s) to a piece of excrement, with implications that said individual(s) are both worthless and without any lasting legacy/easily forgotten. Can be applied to ideas people consider pointless or crap. Often paired with "The sea take you/him/her/them/it" for greater effect when used against someone.

Examples:
"You know that craven, Marten? He's nothing more than fish shit."

"May the sea take you and make you nothing more than fish shit!"

Appearance

Pyrre's right lower leg is missing and has been replaced with a wooden peg after a run in with Chrien.
As a Biqaj, his ears are slightly pointed and his skin glows a silvery hue under the moonlight. His eyes change accordingly:
Standard Aquamarine, gold starburst Upset Indigo, silver starburst
Curious Pale blue, gold starburst Injured Jet, silver starburst
Angry Gray and gold, silver starburst Drunk Pale amber, gold starburst
Amorous Platinum, gold starburst Scared Emerald, silver starburst

Cursed

Hated by Chrien
"The first level of Chrien's curse bestows terrible misfortune upon the Hated. A series of events will befall them daily that range from the minor and annoying to the severe and dangerous. Rarely are these forces of mishap deadly, but curiously those that are around the Hated seem to benefit from remarkably better luck than they might have otherwise had."

Re: Player Submitted Scalvoris Curses!

Sweetwine's bitter-berries

Also often abreviated to this as a more firm curse: bitter-berries

This is used to indicate that you didn't get what you were expecting or worse yet, got something you don't want.

Dispite it's name, Sweetwine has an ample supply of beautiful and tasty-looking berries that are truly awful to eat.

Examples:

- By Sweetwine's bitter berries, what is that?
- OOoooohhhh, that's some Sweetwine's bitter berries you got there.

Appearance

When standing at his full height, Winston towers a full 1 foot and one blueberry tall. A fact he will happily demonstrate before flicking said blue orb into the air with his nose and then eating it with a snappy grin.

His eyes are dark and sharp, ringed by dark brown fur upon the bright white fur that sets off across the rest of his face.

Equipement

Winston usually carries the following on his person:
  • Cassion's Locket hangs snugly around his neck.
  • Winston's Fairy Bell hangs from his tool-belt attached to his hip. It's 'ringer' is often bound by a small piece of cloth to prevent it giving away his position while in the wilderness.

Re: Player Submitted Scalvoris Curses!

"Faldrass' fiery farts!"

This can either be an expression of shock or a reference to a bad smell.

Most people consider this curse to be so mild that they barely consider it a curse at all. But anyone who has spent enough time on Faldrass to know how much it can sting to have the smell of sulfur run through their nostrils, knows that this curse can pack a punch.

Example:
"Did you step in something? You smell like Fadrass' fiery farts!"
