Default The peoples of Forsilvra

So one thing I love about this site is how thorough and engaging the lore is. There are a few things though I'm a bit confused and would love a little help with.

So we have a few named like "ethnic" groups I think in the world such as the Caelish and the Cemric peoples. But that has me thinking? What do the other big regional and provincial groups call themselves?

For example is it Abrechtian (I am sorry if I missed this), or Abrechtishmen? Is it Mierian or Mierish?

I'm curious because when I meet someone say from Lacharn do I refer to them as Lacharian or is there another word? I do know Aheshtri and Hazirm, but the others i'm not so sure about :3

Awesome! Ahesteri :3

I"m still curious about Mier and some of the more "unique" regional house groups.

Yes. If you are from Mark you are just "of the Mark."

Also, I don't think we do it, but I do like Mierish.

Quick update since I've done some basic thesis on this as I was doing some exercise.

Here is what I discovered -

Albrecht is an actual surname it means basically "Noble Light" which can be fun to play with :3

Vandermark is basically a combination of a word in dutch meaning "son of" and mark meaning "march".

So without further ado I have identified a few groups existing with Forsilvra from an anthropological perspective:

The Caelish or Caelic / Cemric Peoples
After a bit of reading I've notice that the peoples of Mier and even perhaps the Kelliales. The thing I'm noticing here is that many of these groups (I'm kind of excepting Lacharn from this) are probably the original inhabitants of the various isles.

The Abrechtlanders (Possible Dorwall Descendants?)
So the Abrechters or Abrechtlanders are a pseudo nordic people which according to the lore landed with Conrad. They make up the ruling area and alot of their cities are very Norse in naming and sound perfectly germanic.

The Vandermarkers (Dorwall)
So this is actually kind of cool as Vander means "Son of" and the word mark is kind of a word for march. So vandermark is the March of the Sons or the Son's March.

:3

Marker I think is a simple fun name for them. Or Vanmarker? Who knows

Some theories

Dorwall People - I think these guys are the super ethnic Linguistic group that led to the foundation of The Linnets, the Houses of Vandermark, and the more Germanic Abretchers (as I call them :3).

Greater -Ish Tribes - Like the original peoples of the regions making up the Kingdom. I suggest Mierish for the folk of House Vulferam. The name can easily be explained because they were Abretchized by the invading peoples under Conrad.

That's what I have so far ^^
