Great question. Someone else asked me about the spheres and columns IC, and about the tools they used. Maybe someone has more info to share about these aspects of construction by the D'Ni.

Glad I'm not the only one who craves the knowledge of D'ni mathematics.

We were even talking yesterday about possible methods the D'ni learned their arithmetic and higher math. Whether it was through a childhood education system. (I recall reading in the chronicles of the kings information about reforms.) or whether guilds equipped their members with the knowledge and skills particular to their discipline.

Seeing as there are no "Guild of Mathematicians" I'm assuming that this -must- have been the case.

Unless there is archaelogical data that the DRC did not disclose.

To the Guild Halls!

Good grief. I have trouble grasping the maths I have to use everyday without torturing my brain learning something that's probably divisible by 5 and comes written in little boxes. :shock:


/me wanders off to find an easier thread....

RAWA as keeper of D'ni lore would be a good place to ask. Also the Archivist Guild they have a site and lots of lore....

dig dig, and you may just get lucky...

this is a very interesting site:

http://staticfree.info/dni.xhtml

here is more...

http://dni.wikia.com/wiki/D%27ni_Numerals

Decimals are fractions of a sort no?

For basic D'ni info: a good start is the DRC site here:
