Alrighty, I'm starting to work on my culture and I need two things: Islamic Origins for Thuzla and Bhuddist Origins for Turvin

Athara Magarat You have a city in my nation and now that I'm working on culture seriously for the first time since I made this nation, I need to consider its impact.

Negarakita When did your nation become muslim and how were your people made islamic?

this process is going to include and actual writing of my early history too.

Truthfully exciting.

So when I mention keplisii and 'esh in my culture, I figure the sword is essentially a shotel-like blade, somewhere between that and a khopesh. It would mean that 'esh would be like this but faster, with less protection (meaning none, you fight 'esh in only a loicloth and powder) and with sharpened blades:

Right. Turvin Gadhi.

I don't exactly remember saying Buddhist. But Magarat has always been strict on prosetlyzing (sorry about the spelling..and in AM this term refers to enforcing a single religion and "one God" or "our religion better" rhetoric instead of the ancient syncretic values) and often these religion-spreaders were exiled. This is another reason why Magarati-descent people outside AM are mostly Buddhist or Christian while the island is still majority Munist. So yep.

And there could a chain of events for the city.

Like in 1XXX, the Magarati ship placeholder name reached what is now the city of Turvin while on a voyage to the fabled east. (Another thing is that Gael, Argus and Southern Sea were often mythicized in Magarat - especially from records of the distant hangates. In Gael for example, there was the Sunuwar Hangate even as late as 17th Century. I guess you have heard of the war the Xiangu Hangate in Wellsia? The Magaratis, while not trading and all, were mostly searching if their distant cousins, and possible allies, still existed.)

Or in 1YYY, the city rose in rebellion after the Magarati traders fasely accused and shot a local man for robbery.

At least you can sleep happy knowing that we won't ever use your information without your permission.

Or so they say

Athara Magarat, in response to the IW thread question (so as not to clutter it), you have TGs incoming; just need to get my thoughts in order first.
