Language notes: 

The Old Southern Tongue does not recognize colors as having their own names (like 'red' or 'green'). Colors are instead described as 'grass' or 'sky' and are recognized as colors based on context in much the same way we would recognize that an 'orange' is different from an 'orange pencil'.
