Culture, language, and ethnicity
So far most of us have been using "The World" and making up our own ethnicities based on either real ethnicities or ones related to the ethnicities of our neighbors. We are currently working on building a model of the language groupings and cultures of this world. When using continental terms, the continent names are marked here at Portal:Geography. Use terms like "West Ulethan" or "East Terephian". Here is a handy map that is being worked on at the moment. quick map and being talked about Here: Talk:Portal:World History. I am encouraging everyone to get into the conversation. :) Please don't be offended if I copy paste this into others talk pages. Thank you (talk) 07:26, 9 August 2014 (CEST)
Wiwaxia and Pasundan Padjadjaran
Hi Okiazr, this is Demuth your neighbour of Wiwaxia. I just wanted to touch base with you and mention that I created a bit of history between Padjadjaran and Wiwaxia. Hope it's okay and it makes sense for how you've envisioned the history for your country. Basically, to quote from the history I wrote:
By the 1400s and the Great Age of Exploration, Pasundan and Padjadjaran were rich targets for colonization, with unsuccessful incursions occurring over the next two centuries by a number of northwestern Ulethan countries, principalities and duchies, including Ingerland, Skandmark, Kalm as well as Sathria and Roantra, even occasionally some of the various petty kingdoms of Pretany made forays. The Edicarians were not a target until after 1521, when three galleons from Skandmark were sunk off of Parahayangan and Padjadjaran was deemed an impossible target. The Kalmish were the first to wrest control of the Edicarians away from Padjadjaran, followed by Sathria, then Ingerland, then Kalm again. Finally, in 1637, Ingerland bought rights from Kalm and began colonization in earnest, with petty nobles as well as the cadet branches of major Ingerish nobles emigrating, lured by advantageous terms offered by the Ingerish crown over the next century and taking entire Ingerish villages with them. It was over this first century that colonists from Ingerland poured in, building the cities and most of the major towns that sprang up in strategic positions throughout the region. The colony, known as Wiwaxia, had an uneasy start with regular attacks from Padjadjaran as well as pirates from as far away as Latina, but over time won out in terms of sheer numbers. And the construction of a series of walls and fortresses along the border with Padjadjaran went a long way to securing the weakest border. While there was a certain amount of co-mixing at this time, in 1701 an Ingerish colonist arrived in the port of Lydgate with a case of Darmer Fever, which proved lethal to the native Edicarian population, which was essentially wiped out over the next fifty years.
The New Kingdom In 1722, Wiwaxia broke completely from Ingerland; the noble families, emboldened by the recent success of silver mining in what is now County Lossinia, as well as the explosion in the global market for spices, declared Wiwaxia a Kingdom, with the powerful Countess of Penge as Queen Eglantine I. Ingerland, in the midst of a civil war, did not contest and within short order, much of the rest of the world recognized the new realm. The Ingerish Governer fled the Little Mother Palace in Wiwaxmouthe, and the new Queen Eglantine I was installed. Construction began immediately on the grand Excelsior Palace as the fledgling kingdom began to flex its muscles. The previous century spent fighting off outside attacks had unified Wiwaxia, and boundaries for the counties were established, with noble families in charge and serving on a royal council under the queen. Healthy trade and the discovery of rich farmland in south-central Wiwaxia provided a long period of stability in the first half-century of the kingdom. In 1773, the long peace was broken when Padjadjaran invaded from the sea. After a three-day siege, the city of Constance-Reid was sacked before Queen Margalin could muster her forces to meet the Padjadjaranians. The Wiwax-Padjadjaran War lasted for two years, during which much of south-eastern Wiwaxia, from Percehouse to Dilke Cove, was under control of Padjadjaran. The war ended when the Wiwaxian army occupied Salaka for two weeks before a treaty was brokered between the two countries.
