Actual colors...

Look at this page on WikiBooks that I was trolling through. Without intention to find, I found words for the rest of the rudimentary colors. I will not post them, as per what I assume to be the rhetoric that "those in the know" (with NO disrespect behind my use of quotes) have about revealing things at the proper time. Considering that, I post what is freely available to anyone that stumbles upon it, like me. My apologies if this is preemptive.

Can anyone conform these??

Since blue/green are listed together as well as red/orange, my guess is that these were the original colors that were released to us a few weeks ago.  K. Pawl has since decided to do something different for colors and I think perhaps this was not updated in the wiki.

Yeah, those should probly be considered the equivalent of animal names in the Survival Guide. Though it would be interesting if black & white at least are not retained.

They may all be retained in some way, but I don't recommend setting up expectation around them in any way at this point. Perhaps tun will morph into something like the umbrella term "earth tones" and something similar will happen with ean...

I am hoping that this will be like the 'days of the week' situation, and we will have something basic like what might be found in a hunter-gatherer society, but descriptive enough to represent the range of real-world colors we all encounter.

Ean for instance, is now 'blue or green'. But with the strong prevalence of cyan-like tones in the Pandoran world, I wouldn't be surprised if ean ends up meaning blue-green or cyan.

Yawey ngahu!
