TOPIC | How Dragons Write
1 2
I think spirals have writing but everything is written by ADD dragons with no attention span. An epic one thousand page novel will also contain the first two sentences on a thesis of if black holes exist, "See Noggle Run! Run Noggle run!," part of a poem about glowing mushrooms, and what looks like a partially complete math equation. This is all just on the first page.

It's pretty much going to be a frustrating read to everyone not a spiral.

I like the alphabet, but wouldn't it make more sense for the single-footprint runes to be vowel sounds? (Also, there's a FR conlang called [url=https://www1.flightrising.com/forums/cc/2428677#post_2428677]Ursegal[/url], and it's pretty neat too) [right][item=Forgotten Poet's Tools][/right]

@Laluzi

they don't come out of the backs of their wrists! they're just big thumb claws - when they walk on the ground, they fold their thumbs back. (they have thumbs on their feet too, just like pearlcatchers!) i'm sure writing wouldn't be much of a problem. i could write just fine like that :P

now as for why they have big thumb claws specifically, don't ask me.. but i'm sure they're pretty strong, and probably a digging tool, since they love tunneling through sandstone. ought to be decent weapons, too.
