Cerilia is that of Aduria based on a map in the set of files attributed to Richard Baker. (cf. http://www.birthright.net/brwiki/ind...ile:Aduria.JPG)
That said, I had a quick look for Tollanar in the forum archives and one suggestion was made that it might be treated like Mayan/Aztec South and Latin America. So they must speak Latin, right?
I believe a Vice President told me so.

Thanks. I figured the map was fan based but sometimes it's hard to tell.
Thanks, I had the Aduria map and the notes that Rich Baker was shipping around back in the 90's. Just wasn't sure if the Aebrynis maps resulted from a list conversation.
Latin America...speaking Latin. :-) If a VP said it, then it must be true, right?
But I suspect that it does have something to do with the European colonization of Central America and the "latin" based languages that they brought with them. ;-)d'estre bons et leaulx amis et vrais ensemble et de servir l'un 'autre envers et contre tous

On a more serious point, the problem is that many of the Cerilian cultures have been based on a period and section of the Earth population. That includes the languages and the phonology used for the names (ie. what sounds can go in syllables). I am curious if there is anyone here who knows much of indigenous American languages? (North, South or Central) I have been exposed to some in my linguistic training but not enough to really help. I know we have had people from Brazil on this forum. And didn't you go to Peru Arjan? Aren't you our expert now?
Of course, that is just one option for Tollanar. Australia is another if it was barren enough to encourage nomadic tribes as separate entities rather than communities on set locations. It would also allow a completely new approach to the gods, ownership and the land.

but one of the old still spoken languages there is Quechua, it origins from the time of the Inca (the word inca can not be plural since there was only 1 inca at the time... and the people below them were not incas, but quechua)
for me as a germanic language speaker the quechua phonetic sounds are quite easy.. while they are not so easy for english speakers.
quechua is only a spoken language, no writing..

I have started detailing Tollanar, and have posted a brief description of the religious denominations there.
