Exercise Trainers

Exercise trainers build muscle, stamina and rhythm.

The Exercise Trainers are common fitness footwear used by the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement, especially among fresh infantry recruits who are exercising or performing drills. While these shoes appear ordinary, they contain internal weights balanced by muscle amplifiers. Their swaddling fit feels instantly comfortable, and they’re proven to improve footwork and rhythm. The sneakers’ soles also quiet enough to let the wearer move silently and spy around.

The Exercise Trainers come from the גלר shoresh family, which governs feet, infantry, exercise, drill, familiarity, swaddling, rhythm and espionage.

Tender Loaf

The Tender Loaf is soft delicacy that feels heavy going down..

The Tender Loaf is a delicacy that was baked in the Prescriptivist-occupied Kikkar District. This circular loaf of bread is soft to the touch, but feels heavy going down. A pizza-sized loaf weighs between 75 and 100 pounds!

While this loaf tastes sweet, eating it softens and weakens the body while mollifying the mind. Historians believe that the Prescriptivist troops indulged in this treat too much, robbing them of thinness, strength and high morale. In modern times, the Bavel Macrostructure feeds this dish to the poor to keep them pacified.

The Tender Loaf comes from the ככר shoresh family, which governs loaves, talent weights, softness, sweetness, weakness, delicacies, districts and mollification.

The Analeptic Raisin Cake

The Analeptic Raisin Cake in color

The Analeptic Raisin Cake is a tempting treat that the Descriptivists used in combat. This confection, baked in ashes, is smeared with a stimulant drug that promotes physical strength, sharpened senses, recovery and pain relief. However, eating too many can cause flashbacks, epileptic seizures, or mystical hallucinations of pagan gods. The last reason is why the Sefer Yetzer Ra’ cult uses them as burnt offerings, fashioning them in the shape of Ishtar.

The Holy Tongue society bans the use of Analeptic Raisin Cakes among its members, though Etgar Toar still craves them when no one is looking.

The Analeptic Raisin Cake comes from the אשש shoresh root and family, which governs raisin cakes, fire and analeptics.

Inktober Day 3: Kelilah Kilyah

This kidney cultist will kill ya.

Kelilah Kilyah represents the Kidney among the Souls Division of the Bavel Macrostructure’s Yetzer Ra’ cult. She handles battlefield logistics and supplies the troops.

Kilyah is a knavish careerist who works herself to death to achieve the End of History. On the surface she reins in her emotions, but her innermost thoughts, feelings and morals all steer toward annihilation.

She also is a hoarder who always wants to collect the complete set of everything: weapons, clothing, accessories, tools, consumables — you name it. Her powerful strength lets her carry a massive lacquered Provision Pot, which boasts a near-infinite storage capacity. And in a pinch, her bean-shaped ocarina is a sonic weapon too.

Kilyah was inspired by the כלי shoesh root and related family, which has to do with completion, kidneys, vessels, tools, instruments and potential. It also fulfills Inktober’s Day 3 theme of “Vessel.”
