Smøøh (English: /ˈtrɪsin/ TRIS-in or /ˈtrɪkɪn/ TRIK-in; Skellan: a Smøøh /ə smœyh/; Rhythoed: Sngeaf; Clofabosin: tricin /tɾikin/ 'world'; Tsjoen: Xjeof /ɬjʌf/) is an older version of the conworld Verse:Tricin before major languages (especially Talmic) were revamped on July 1, 2018. The material is kept here for archival purposes.

Star system

Tricin is the second of 7 planets orbiting a G-type main sequence star, called a hond in Skellan, grian in Clofabosin, and pjeos in Tsjoen.

Planet names in Skellan, Clofabosin and Rhythoed:

  • Sfiþ, spitin, Sfith - terrestrial
  • Smøøh, tricin, Sngeaf - terrestrial
    • Satellite: Søøm, porfin, Chad
  • Aloð, olatin, Ălath - terrestrial
  • Fricoð, fricadin, Frăcod - super-Earth
  • Sdarciþ, sterocitin, Starăcüth - gas giant
  • Toroð, tarofudin, Torăfud - gas giant
  • Llifr, cliferin, Clăfar - ice giant

The largest planet is Taroð and the smallest is Aloð.

Planetary characteristics

1 Trician year = 381.3668618 Earth days = 357.0806527870906 Trician days = 1.04410737342 Earth years

1 Trician day = 25.6323176 hours

357 days = 51 7-day weeks

Atmosphere and atmospheric pressure: Earth-like


27% of Tricin's surface is land (i.e. not covered by water).

Continents (Areas are ballpark estimates):

  • Eta-Talma (Skellan: Eþa-Talma): Spreads north to south, about 20% of the land
    • Talma (Skellan: Talma): Northern, temperate region
    • Etalocin (Skellan: Eþa): Southern, tropical region
  • Bjeheond (Skellan: Ogxóoŋ): about 10% of the land, temperate
  • Txapoalli (Skellan: Nyçís) : about 30% of the land, climate varies widely
  • Cualuav (Skellan: Cualuav): 30%, climate varies widely
  • Arctica: 10%

Other areas:

TODO: Residual and spread zones within each continent.


The following describes the Talman calendar, which is now a global standard across Tricin.

Year 0 marks the founding of the Windermere Empire. Negative years are written with a minus sign.

Months in Clofabosin:

  • rufiporfin
  • talaporfin
  • uneporfin
  • verteporfin
  • rostaporfin
  • exeporfin
  • avidoporfin
  • temoporfin
  • padeliporfin
  • padoporfin
  • stannsoporfin
  • lemuteporfin

A seven-day week is used. The names of the days of the week in Clofabosin are:

  • domorelin
  • remorelin
  • mimorelin
  • famorelin
  • solmorelin
  • lamorelin
  • timorelin

Leap day every 12.3988275678 years

months: 30 30 30 29 30 30 30 29 30 30 30 29(30)

Leap year every 12 except when the year is divisible by 372. If the year is divisible by 130944=352*372 it's a leap year.

so the years 270, 520, 790, X40, 10E0, 1360, 1610, 1880, ... are not leap years

In Talman reckoning, history is divided into 72-year periods, known in Skellan as fyðóor.

The current Trician year is fT 1392.

Major oceans and seas

Tectonic plates

Major plates:

  • one big oceanic plate
  • Talman plate
  • Etalocian plate (Or maybe one single Eta-Talman plate)
  • Bjeheondian plate
  • two to three Txapoallian plates
  • one Cualuavian plate
  • two to four minor oceanic plates
  • one Arctican plate

Time zones



  • Long period of glaciation like in our world
  • Behaviorally modern humans emerged in Txapoalli


Mostly similar to Earth humans

  • There is a contingent of people who are not stereotypically autistic but they aren't normie-normies either. More common among scientists, mathematicians and artists. (needs more description)
  • Some people can only trust explicit rules.


Major languages

Roughly in order of number of speakers:

  1. Tizian
  2. Sjowaazhéñ
  3. Skellan
  4. Tsjoen
  5. Rhythoed
  6. Amphirese
  7. Clofabosin
  8. Qazhrian

Language families

Some major language families are:

"Racial" characteristics

  • Etalocians have brown skin, black hair, epicanthal folds, blue eyes (sometimes), and straight hair.
  • Native Bjeheondians look Caucasian.
  • Txapoallians: various

In-universe conlangs

  • Fantasy language aesthetics:

Programming languages

Programming languages usually have Skellan keywords. Some common languages are:

  • High-level language (Java + Python hybrid)
  • Functional language
  • C analogue
