Looks good so far, probably only questions wold be regarding whether this map shows the current demographics? Also, why is Khadar (light green) highlighted differently? Thanks

It shows the current Demographics

Khadar is only colored that way because It hasn’t been fully added to the map yet, but since you have the Map Claim, its colored Light Green so I know its yours.

Besides maybe decreasing the amount of Rekhina in the northeast, especially since the coast is predominantly Arab, I’m good with the rest of it

Just on a side-note, it might be good to have a key for the colours :sweat_smile:

What are the origins of the Barelandic Slavs is the question though.
Should that be left to each persons interpetation or?

EDIT: Pardon me for sending a message here.

No need to apologize. Barelandic Slavs are probably connected to the Slavs of other nations. But that’s really up for you to decide in the end of the day

What language do the Rekhina speak and what religion do they follow? I’m planning on adding them to my wiki page

@Frost Can you answer here?

The Rekina people speak Rekina, Austral, Hinomoto, Sedunnic, Tarnian, etc.
if there are Rekina tribes living in fatiniyah they would also speak the native language of the country in addition to Rekina.

As far as religion goes this is heavily dependent on which part of the region a Rekinan resides. For example in Reizen, Frost Empire there are many who have abandoned or mixed their shamanistic ways with that of the Frost Empire’s Shinto religion. In the Rekinan Majority DPRR there is a revival of Rekinan Shamanism in the rural countryside while many of its soldiers and urban dwellers are less spiritual. There are also Christian and Muslim minorities among the Rekina but it is heavily dependent on geography as the religions didn’t take hold beyond their point of entry.

However, if there are Rekinans in Fatinyah it would be reasonable to believe that they would slowly move to adopt the country’s religion over the course of several generations.

Thank you. This means that Rekina language would be a recognized minority language in Fatiniyya, and while the majority would have probably converted to Islam, especially during the Fatiniyyan Empire’s golden age, some isolated communities of shamanism practitioners might still exist

Also, a similar question for the Tyvari and Slavs in Khadar. What’re their languages and religious belief? (Also, sorry for asking this question again. Planning on writing about Khadar)

The Tyvari speak their own language(Tyvarian), which is a Conlang, but I really don’t have time to make up yet another one. For Religion, I imagine that since they are Denvari, they would be a little more hesitant to convert to Islam.

That’s fine. Do they have any sort of religion or belief of their own?

No not really, which is rather standard for the Denvari.

In that case, considering they were merchants (I’m assuming from the name) they would’ve been treated much more favorably in comparison to “local” nonreligious peoples. Though social stigma might have still existed and persisted to modern times. Are the Tyvari sedentary or nomadic?

I actually wanted to run this by you, but the land where the Tyvari live were originally established as a Trade Post(1432) for both the Denvari Empire and Cimbria, and was officially owned by Cimbria, until Cimbria fell to Austral Invasion in 1576. The Denvari seized the post, now a bustling city, which began a mass migration of the Tyvari to the city. The Colony would’ve been entirely left alone during the Denvari Revolutionary Wars, and most likely would’ve had a brief independence before being absorbed into Khadar.

The Tyvari were a small Denvari Minority, who mostly were known for their trading, which led to them being employed by the Varsari(Jyllanders) and later the Cimbrians. The Outpost/City that would be established(Call Tyrsborg, which roughly means Trade Castle(Combination of Denvari and Cimbrian)) would later be inhabited by the Tyvari, and later most, if not all moved to the Colony.

So, assuming the year it was founded, that this trade outpost was for trade between Fatiniyya, Denvaria, and Cimbria before the last two eventually fell to their respective conflicts? I’m pretty down with that idea, though I don’t know what year the Denvari Revolutionary Wars occured, so they would’ve either been incorporated into the Fatiniyyan Empire or Khadar, since Khadar was a province of Fatiniyya until the Succession War in 1880

Oh, and Tyrsborg would probably be rendered in Arabic as ترسبورغ (Tirsburgh) or alternatively as قلتجار (Qaltajar, which is just a shortened version of the Arabic for “Trade Castle”)

The Denvari Revolutionary Wars started in 1682, and ended in 1683.

The Outpost would’ve also been used as a midway stopping point between the Denvari Empire and its Colony in Spiras.

So, maybe the Tyvari would only be incorporated sometime between 1685 and 1700? This would mean that it would have been incorporated into Fatiniyyan Khadar at the time
