Lady Penstar's Reverse Verb List


Have you ever wondered, as I have, how to express yourself in action, but not been able to recall the verb to do it?


Penstar rolls her eyes as she pulls a manuscript from her pocket.


So I put together this little list of actions that you may wish to take, and what must be entered to perform that act. My list doesn't include actions that cannot be seen by others. If you wish that sort of list, there is one most fine by the Ladies Chrysandra and Falya in the Coven Library. And a lovely new list (if incredibly lengthy) by my sister Eratika.

Penstar smiles at you and pats the branch next to her.

Sit down by me and take a look at what I have learned.


1/6 - At last! People now can LISTEN when we talk, howl, gibber and so on. Thank you Cattriona for alerting me to this new development. At the urging of my coven sisters, Eratika and Aelpheba, I have filled in a few, alright maybe more than a few, missing verbs. Most of them are profession or race specific or pertain to actions not really involved in roleplaying. But I am sure I am a better person for having done this.

7/7 - I was GREETed this morning in front of the Kiramon mines by Blizzrd. Just before he ran off to greet all the Isle, he shared his secret with me. And if you feel the urge, and I assure you I never have, you can GRUNT. Dwarves can GRUNT in endless ways, which I do not detail here.

5/15 - May brings the festival of Oleani. I have quickly mapped the grounds. Perhaps this will help you find your way to all the wondrous sights and events! Don't miss LadyPenstar's Rough Guide to the Festival events. April brought a wedding. I married my countryman, Lord Mhegred Behlen and now am learning firsthand what all the marriage verbs are. I have decided against updating the list, because it truly is so much fun to discover them first hand! If you must must must know, you can write to me. Now go frolic!

1/11 - A new year, and fresh beginnings. The gods taught us to DISMISS disks, people, items, and even ourselves! The Table verbs have lots of new additions, thanks to Lady Kelista's sharp eye. I have started 2 new specialty lists to add to the House and Table verbs. The Marriage list contains those actions that spouses who have been married in the Cathedral can do. I hear there are lots of them, and being single again, I need your help to tell me what they are. I plan to start work on a list of things to do while you are dead. And I have received several requests for dancing lessons, so look for a list of those as well.
