50 shades of affliction

I know. The title is unforgivable.

So I'm wondering if anybody else's brain is like mine and assigns colors to different afflictions/cures?

Mine seems to associate the color of the curative with the affliction.
Bloodroot/paralysis = red, Kelp/asthma = green, confusion/ash = grey

But I also imagine aeon as a yellow, card-shaped haze that expands to people-size and passes through them, so elm pipe is yellow to me too.
And I picture slike/anorexia as yellow, so epidermal salve is too.
Stupidity is yellow for goldenseal, like dizziness.
And even though the moon tarot has a red glow, I always picture it blue for some reason.

And ginseng affs are orange, like carrot vomit. Lobelia has the sissy affs, so it's pink. And voyria/immunity are black.

So who else has affliction synesthesia?

I like my steak like I like my Magic cards: mythic rare.

    Hmm. I have no coloured afflictions or coloured eats or anything. So I'll do arrows. My arrow colourings-

    Green - Curare
    Grey - Loki
    Red/Black - Delphinium/Voyria depending on mood
    If I used aconite it'd be yellow.

    Prefarar sometimes green too.

    I don't use coloured echoes for any of my curing or opponent alerts... for arrows I use:

    Red = Curare
    Orange = Prefarar
    Black = Delphinium
    Green = Loki
    One day, ACC, one day...

    I don't use colored echoes either for the most part. I was actually referring to my mental association with them. All in the imagination box.
    But when I do color afflictions and stuff it'd be with the color I associate with it.

    And on the CWHO highlighting package I made (on mudlet forum), I shaded the background of each class based on my association. Runelore is always blue to me, for example, so Shamans and Runewardens show up blue.

    My arrows:
    Colour              Venom               Quantity
    ------              -----               --------
    Undyed              None                32
    Red                 Curare              46
    Blue                Prefarar            25
    Green               Kalmia              50
    Black               Delphinium          17
    Orange              Gecko               10
    Gold                Slike               45
    Silver              Aconite             30

    Prefarar is green in my mind, but kalmia is greener.

    I don't associate afflictions or cures with specific colours (though I have colours in mind for herbs and minerals that often differ from the actual descriptions), but I do with classes.

    Shamans are a sort of bluish-brown, serpents are grey-ish green, occultists are gold, blademasters and apostates are black, runewardens and druids are green, sentinels are dark green, sylvans and bards are blue, priests are silverish-white, paladins are bluish-white, monks are an earthy brown, magi and infernals are red, alchemists are grey, jesters are yellow.
  • XithXith Posts: 2,602Member @@ - Legendary Achaean
    Interesting. Most of those were close to mine. Except I had Apostate as red, sylvan as green with the other forestals, priest/paladin as light yellow, monk darker yellow, alchemist dirty brown, and jester and magi purple. And occultist orange. But that's for bg highlighting's sake.
    And now that I'm without my entire mudlet and am on a PC using the HTML5 client, my cwho feels naked. :(

    Man, that's just wrong. So completely wrong.

    Blue - Delphinium.
    Black - Prefarar.
    Purple - Aconite.
    Orange - Curare.
    Green - Loki.
    Grey or silver - Kalmia.
    White - Epteth or Epseth. (I use those extremely rarely though.)

    USING ANYTHING ELSE WILL GET YOU POOR SNIPING RESULTS.

    Delphinium is obviously always black, prefarar is always red, curare is always green and loki is always white.

    See, this is what happens when you play a Serpent not in the Naga - you make silly choices.

    White - Delphinium (milk makes me sleepy)
    Blue - Prefarar
    Red - Curare

    I only color salve applications, sleep, paralysis and fitness.  I should add more but I like sleeping more.

    For arrows:
    Delphinium is black, because it puts you to sleep.
    Prefarar is green, because it's cured by kelp and everybody knows kelp is green.
    Kalmia is blue, because it gives you asthma and not being able to breathe makes you turn blue.
    Curare is red, because it's cured by bloodroot and blood is red.

    Those aren't even up for debate, if you use anything else you're plain wrong.

    Curare is yellow, because electricity is yellow and paralysis is caused by electric attacks.

    Edit: For arrow colours, white, silver, or orange (it can be a really light orange) are acceptable alternatives since there isn't any yellow.

    There seem to be some misconceptions.

    Cyrene is green, because that's the colour I arbitrarily chose for CT 10 years ago, when I started Achaea in Cyrene. It's true that loki is green, but it's because randomness is green, and trickster gods are green. Green dragons are green because poison/venom is green, and loki just happens to be the best venom. Moving on from green things, prefarar can be black, blue, or purple, because those are traditional bruise colours and bruises=sensitivity.

    Edit: Curare can't be gold, because aconite is gold since people do stupid things for gold.

    Sorry, but no. Gold is vernalius because gold is heavy and carrying heavy stuff makes you tired and weary.

    Nobody uses vernalius arrows though, so there's no conflict, they can both be gold.

    I can't find any examples either. The closest I found is the darker parts in the circled area here.

    Maybe I'm picturing a colour that doesn't actually exist. Maybe it's better to think of it as light brown with lots of blue flecks mixed in, rather than actually combining the colours.

    I made paralysis red and stupidity blue, I think. I don't really see the rest.

    Anyway, I made this up:

     

    Curare is red,

    Delphinium is too.

    I've got a dirk,

    So I can lock you.

     

    Prefarar is green,

    Aconite is black.

    Freeze you up with a

    goldenseal stack.

    Goldenseal cures are bright yellow.
    Bloodroot cures are red.
    Kelp cures are bright green.
    Lobelia cures are dark green.
    Ash cures are dark gold.
    Sleep stuff is blue.

    Therefore.

    Delph is blue
    Aconite is yellow
    Curare is red
    Prefarar is green
    Loki is black (cause it's a mix of everything and you can't do brown)

    I think I associate runelore with blue because Cyrene is blue due to their random blue ribbon festival thing, and runelore is all Cyrenish and stuff.

    It's useless to highlight things since there's no point while praying and you will all be praying.
