That coulld be right. I really don't know! The only reason I pronounce it like Erin is because that's my sister's name, and I guess naturally go towards that.

crescent1325

you know, ive always been pronouncing it like 'URN' .

I was under the impression that the wolfriders soul names are one syllble sound cocepts. So Erin is two syllables. ...lol..just my weird train of thougt....lol...

Still, that kinda makes sense when you consider the other Wolfriders' names.....Tam, Fahr, Wyl, Sur, etc.....so perhaps you're right - maybe it is pronounced "urn."

Yeah it does doesnt it. But 'Erin' is nice. **Bright idea** im so gonna name a girl of mine Eryn now (nice name, uniqueness and tied to EQ)

Foxeye

I'm with nowth on this one..."airn" is how I have thought of it.

(And in case you weren't mispelling it on purpose cres, Moonshade's soulname is "eyrn" not "eryn". ^_^ Though eryn does make for a better name for a kid...people would always mix up the letters and call her eryn even if you meant eyrn.)

crescent1325

LOL. good point Foxy. lol... but either way is a nice way..lol.


Eyrn or Eryn? either way....lol..nice name on a kid....

Next step would be me actually nameing a kid Crescent, which i must confess, ive wanted to since i was in highschool! :oops:

Songflower

I think I remember Richard saying it's pronounced like "Iron." IMHO, Moonshade's and Strongbow's soul names are kind of a little joke Elfmom and Elfpop must have been having.

Iron will!

(Bearclaw's and Joyleaf's go together, too, I think. Grenn and Dehl, "Grendel," the monster. Guess Cutter's the monster! LOL.)

crescent1325

[quote:a06b0efb04="RichardPini"]The pronunciation is halfway between "air-n" and "iron" - there's no way to indicate that with only letters so you just have to try saying it out loud until you think you've got it.[/quote:a06b0efb04]

[color=indigo:a06b0efb04]Well thats what elfpop had to day on the matter. Still, since i suck at figureing out how to actually Pronounce words, "Erran" is what im getting lol..[/color:a06b0efb04]

[quote:c5d0fc8281]She does kinda follow his lead, even if she thinks he is wrong. Or, as she'd put it: if they are wrong.

I don't actually mind that; although I'm not sure how well it'd work in the real world, I'll just assume that with Moonshade it's a healthy kind of devotion.

It's sweet. Even enviable.

From Strongbow's POV, though -- if I were in his place, it'd creep me out; I'd have to go woo Kahvi for a bit.

Then again, I might be exaggerating what's just one or two incidences.



Hmm. Moonshade certainly seems to follow Strongbow's lead, but I think it's just an individual dynamic of their relationship rather than a cultural thing. [/quote:c5d0fc8281]

Not to dig this up needlessly but I think I found what might have been the original source behind my impressions, by way of paraphrases, translations and hazy memories:

"Her mind is set on certain 'oughts' and 'givens,' which leaves her free to concentrate on her work. Watch out, women's libbers! Moonshade gladly defers to Strongbow on most issues and usually sticks up for her lifemate, even when he's wrong. As far as she's concerned, that's part of 'The Way.'"

(Elfquest.com character bio, now replaced... it might have come from the Gatherum, I don't know.)

I don't know if this brings anything new to the table, but at least I wasn't making it up entirely.

Honestly, I wouldn't like that ONE bit! Moonshade and Strongbow are lifemates forever. Besides, I wouldn't know one other elf that can handle our dear, stubborn archer. :)

I think they both would be extremely unhappy. Kind of like Raisong or Woodlock recognizing someone else. Those are the kind of characters that really form the two parts of a whole unit.

Nah, i dont think they would be extremely unhappy. I think because they are closest to The Way, the would be happy. Because Recognition means new life and it is The Way. Maybe they would even open up to a threemate if that ever happens.

Strongbow looks like he's had one too many. :cheers:

Thanks!

crescent1325

[color=indigo:0f8ad28d3e]its from the story where it explains how Skywise and Cutter become soulbrothers. In the RC its "In all But Blood"[/color:0f8ad28d3e]

Songflower

Oh! That was quick! Thanks.

"Troll Games and Soul Names." That explains it. I do not really like that story and have only read it once or twice.

ReenBladesong

Yeah, I've heard a lot of bad press for that story and its inconsistancies and plot holes, but you have to admit Sonnys a great artist.Possibly one of the best since Wendy.

crescent1325

[color=indigo:10ee69a984]i read it, i didnt see that at all. What is this Plot holes and Inconsistancies you speak of Reen?

Yah and Sonny is one of the Best that Elfma and Pa had on board with them, IMHO.[/color:10ee69a984]

ReenBladesong

Troll paper.
Or have I been listening to the ever cynical(yet witty)Wingthing too much?
Probably the latter.She puts up a good arguement.

crescent1325

[color=indigo:c0a6682983]oh yeah, that whole arguement! lol...

I tend to just gloss over that part... Grin [/color:c0a6682983]

That's true...Sonny's really good! I do like his art. That is a very nice Moonshade. Thanks for posting it!

I always pronounced it like yearn (if I spelt that right) like you are Yearning for something. I think it is pretty much the same as that ^
And you know, the soulnames always end up sounding like something that describes them.

Fahr - as in far away
Wyl - as in will power
Tam - as in, well, can't figure that one...
Ulm - as in Elm tree
Twen - reminds me of a sound an arrow would make
Sur - as in a Sir Knight
Dehl - as in a glade or hill and dale
Grenn - as in the grrrr of a wolf, or the grin of a mischivous wolf
Dyrr - can't figure that one either
Lree - the sound a bird makes, she imitates birds
Jial - as in jail (at least to me) he is quite controling
Sohn - a soft sound, but can't figure out what it might mean

I have a whole list of others but I think I made my point.....

crescent1325

Like your threory Elftanner. :D But, i actually talked to Richard and this is what he said:

Very nice, only I think it looks more like Nightfall... :oops:

I think your two Christmas elves are cool. (This one and the

Hurray for posting out of season...


Yes, I know it is odd to have pink flowers (in Moonshade's hair)
and fall leaves...but oh well.

I love all these new Moonshade works! :)

I like Moonshade too, her strong personality, and her name is beautiful too.
So here is my little contribution, in honour of Moonshade :



Argh, she ALWAYS looks sad when I draw her..

Treefox

Oh wow! She looks so sad and beautiful. Love that eye color.

Badger

Sad. Sad, maybe, but still lovely.

:love:

krwordgazer

Pretty, pretty! Good job, all of you!

I think Moonshade is the loveliest of all the EQ females. :D

Minouche

I agree with Badger. Maybe she is just sad because you forgot to draw her lifemate by her side? (Hint, hint, hint Wink )

Still like your trio, Siwan Smile

TheFontBandit

Hello all! *waves* I have a question that has been driving me bonkers, and I think if anyone can help me, it's those of you in this thread. I am currently working on a Moonshade costume. It'll be her black-and-red version that she started wearing during KotBW.

While looking for reference photos, I came across this panel online:



For the life of me, I can't remember which issue or series this is from. I can even remember the scene - she's trimming down the dress that Leetah received when she fell through the humans' roof in Kings. I've been hunting through my old back issues and the EQ Online comics, but I can't seem to figure out where that scene took place (it may have been a flashback later?)

Sooo... would anyone be able to point me in the right direction, perhaps? I'd be quite grateful, as this has been bugging me! =P Also, that is the specific "version" of the outfit I'd like to recreate... some other versions have the upper part in all-black or all-red, and the belt seems to disappear and reappear... so the more references I can get of that specific outfit, the better!

Vojira

Picture is from Dreamtime.
http://www.elfquest.com/comic_viewer.php?fd=/gallery/OnlineComics/DTC/_ElfQuest%20-%20Dreamtime%20in%20color_page=1#_1

Embala

To be exact: from the European colored version of Dreamtime.

And they most probably have forgotten to color her leggins - that's why she has bare legs. Wink

TheFontBandit

A-ha! That's what was throwing me off. My versions of the Dreamstime issues are in black and white, so I didn't even think to check them. The "peach leggings" should have been a hint! =P I do plan on doing the gray leggings... I was using HY 1 as my original frame of reference but there are only a couple of good images of the outfit in that issue, and she's missing the belt in that one.

Thank you so much! Smile I'll be sure to post images of the costume when it's done... right now I'm only in the early planning/material gathering stages. I'll be wearing it this September.

Embala

Really hope to see the finished costume!
