INKTOBER DAY 1 (DREAM): Ḥayil Ḥolam represents the linguistic “o” vowel in the world of Avgad.
Ḥolam is a rotund sailor whose job is to wage war aboard the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement’s ships. However, he is also a lazy dreamer who spends more time napping with a giant marshmallow pillow, as he claims he needs lots of rest to stay healthy. His sloth has one advantage though — while asleep, Ḥolam dreams of becoming a fierce warrior, and his dreams bring that warrior to life!
The Roaming Infantry is an ordinary foot soldier in the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement’s military. They’re trained to walk on all terrains, including on water, lava and even in midair. However, the more difficult the environment, the slower it takes and the more they need to focus. This special footwork allows the unit to join a vanguard of explorers, scouts and spies.
This unit exploits the רגל shoresh root, which governs regularity, training, foot soldiers, walking and spying.
INKTOBER DAY 15 (HELMET): When you have to look imposing yet dapper for that special event, the most dashing haberdasheries recommend the Ceremonial Ritual Helmet!
This heavily adorned piece of military regalia is worn by Holy Tongue Society members as well as ‘Ivrit Revival Movement troops, though usually in parades, pageants and other public celebrations, not during the thick of battle. The helmet imbues wearers with a certain gravitas and dignity that helps them concentrate while preparing to perform speech acts.
The Ceremonial Ritual Helmet comes from two neighboring shoresh roots with a common gematria of 169: קסדה and טקס. The first governs helmets and snails, and the second governs ceremonies, rituals, arrangements and adornments.
The general’s epaulets are worn by the head honchos of the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement. They give expertise and authority to the wearer, but are rare to find! Will the Holy Tongue Society be able to dig some up in the Ulpan?
This artifact is based on the אלף and כתף shoresh roots. The first root is based on training (including generals), and the other is based on shoulders.

Gadiëlah Hagdalah is the linguistic augmentative in “Milhamah: Fighting Words.” she is the daughter of a hairdresser who despises her poor upbringing and longs to be rich and powerful someday. She joined the ‘Ivrit Revival Movement and now trains young recruits in the Department of Morphology.
With her tough skin, hardened heart and icy personality, Gadiëlah often argues with and looks down on her colleagues. She sees herself as the “big girl” grown-up in the room. She also loves to show off her skin and brag about her body and (augmented) breasts, despite being self-conscious about a prominent facial scar.
Her gel shoes and legs, toned by frequent rope skipping, power her giant leaps. Her only obstacle to fitness perfection: cravings for gelatin and ice cream.
Based on the גדל shoresh root and family, Gadiëlah can increase her size and power, demoralizing foes with her glory. On the battlefield, she wields a Freezing Flag and uses semaphore martial arts to excoriate her enemies.
“Milhamah: Fighting Words” Demo Version 0.1 will be released the week of Nov. 30. Get ready for some action-arcade RPG mayhem!
