    replied to Dark Eras: The things we miss!
    I would think the list of inspirational media for each setting would be a good place to start for those kinds of details. Remember also, freelancers aren't necessarily scholars - if you can't google a satisfactory answer there's nothing to say that they could either, especially under common deadline conditions and when the particular thing you want to see has potentially no bearing on the stuff they need to write about with limited words and time.

    I think the thread on resources for Dark Era settings is a great start to fill in those gaps though! Let everyone who finds something interesting,...

    Eh... there wasn't supposed to be a direct relationship. For example, there are latin Iron Masters, Carthaginian Iron Masters, Germanian Iron Masters, and Celtic Iron Masters etc etc etc. Of course, the text is what it is.

    Trivia! I spent some idle whiles working on Proto-Latin, Proto-Germanic and Proto-Celtic Tribe names. Wasn't especially relevant to the setting though - the space required to explain the new names was basically wasted when the word count was so limited.

    For what it's worth, my conception of the British Isles during FbR held them home to Hunters in Darkness, Predator Kings, and Bone Shadows (arranged roughly south, north and west but with plenty of overlap). Some Iron Masters in areas of heavy peat and mining.

  • There's always gonna be change and variation. Different cultures bring different ideas to conflict. By the time the Roman Empire fell, some 400-500 years after FbR, the Urdeshga were no more, the Iron Masters having split/been kicked out of the Council of Eagles and Lightning. The Ivory Claws, Firetouched and Predator Kings had likely come together in some form. The Marisi Uratha maybe tentatively allying themselves with Iron Masters from outside the Empire to help bring it down.

    Lots of possibilities I'd love to write about if I ever got the chance.

  • Sumerian doesn't seem to have a known definite article like 'the', as such. Certainly not as listed in the dictionary spreadsheet. You could substitute 'That' or 'This', or grab one of the unknown meanings for your own use, or look through other translations to see how other people - like Sikla Alkis) got around the problem.



    Perhaps something like Mergha-Ur.

  • Nate is on point.

    Much as we tried to squeeze in ways and means for Uratha and humans to work/fight together, and account for how iron age versions fight each other, the real advantage wielded by Uratha is magic - Gifts and Rites which can be utilized while in human form (some more subtly than others). The Varian disaster had something like a day or so of severe thunderstorms to assist the Germanian warriors, and the Blood Talons are good with those weather Gifts, so hanging back and summoning the lightning and rain could be argued as the most successful tactic they could have...
