Troll writing

Post  Snicka on Wed Sep 30, 2009 11:16 am

Although many trolls forgot the art of writing by now, we did have a written culture. In every troll ruin you can find tablets with ancient writing on them. I wondered how the ancient trolls have written, and I think this is really close to it.
The pictures are from an Aztec caledar, and symbolize the days of the Aztec month (as far as I understand, they had 20-day months). As troll culture is heavily based on Aztec culture, I can pretty much imagine a similar image-writing.
This may also explain why other races, who don't speak Zandali, can understand what is written on troll tablets - they can guess what the certain images symbolize.

I'm guessing that you forgot to include the link to the picture you're referring to?

Even after knowing it was a link, it took me a while to find it... Especially since I only found one 'this' at first, and it was the wrong one.

Decently sized images can be included in posts!

For some reason the picture didn't appear for me in the morning, so I just added the link instead.
Thanks for the hint, Vypra, I edited the font colour - although Ryleen has posted the picture already. Smile
