Journals of Zuri Golzar

A Chronical of Self Discovery

Written by Zuri Golzar during her travels, the collection of diaries begins with her exile from her home village of Anapata in the Chisisi Desert; though poor in construction quality, and incomplete, they provide a unique and otherwise unseen insight into the life of Ilerians whenever they fail to meet their culture's harsh expectations.   Nearly all of the journals are crudely made from a variety of animal skins, loose-leaf paper, and other materials that have been dated to many times and locations. This suggests that Zuri Golzar may have made many (if not all) of the journals herself throughout the course of her adventures in Tolara.   The covers themselves are made from thick, poorly worked hide, with rough diamond tooling in their centers, while corners have been wrapped with slightly thicker layers of leather to prevent damage. Inside pages are extensively damaged, however; stains, waterlogging, dirt, and plenty of unidentifiable substances have rendered some pages unreadable- and age has contributed significantly to the fading of the low quality ink used throughout much of the journals.

Author's Notes

▼ Please Read Before You Comment ▼
I absolutely love getting feedback on my setting and its worldbuilding. I love it even more when people poke and prod at it, and ask questions about the things I've built within it. I want both. I actively encourage both. And it makes me incredibly giddy whenever I get either. However, there's a time and a place for critique in particular- mostly when I've actually asked for it (which usually happens in World Anvil's discord server). And when I do ask for critique, there are two major things I politely request that you do not include in your commentary:   ➤ The first is any sort of critique on the way I've chosen to organize or format something; Saleh'Alire is not a narrative world written for reader enjoyment... It's is a living campaign setting for Dungeons and Dragons. To that end, it's written and organized for my players and I, specifically for ease of use during gameplay- and our organization needs are sometimes very different than others'. They are especially diferent, often-times, from how things "should be organized" for reader enjoyment.   ➤ Secondly, is any critique about sentence phrasing and structure, word choice, and so on; unless you've specifically found a typo, or you know for a provable fact I've blatantly misued a word, or something is legitimately unclear explicitly because I've worded it too strangely? Then respectfully: Don't comment on it; as a native English speaker of the SAE dialect, language critique in particular will almost always be unwelcome unless it's absolutely necessary. This is especially true if English is not you first language to begin with. My native dialect is criticized enough as it is for being "wrong", even by fellow native English speakers ... I really don't want to deal with the additional linguistic elitism of "formal english" from Second-Language speakers (no offense intended).   That being said: If you want to ask questions, speculate, or just ramble? Go for it! I love talking about my setting and I'm always happy to answer any questions you have, or entertain any thoughts about it. Praise, of course, is always welcome too (even if it's just a casual "this is great", it still means a lot to authors)- and if you love it, please don't forget to actually show that love by liking it and sharing it around. Because I genuinely do enjoy watching people explore and interact with my setting, and ask questions about it, and I'd definitely love to hear from you... Just be respectful about it, yeah?
