PREVIOUS PROTOCOL: http://classic.particracy.net/viewbill.php?billid=471680

BRIEF PRE-GAME HISTORY

The oldest remaining inhabitants of Jelbania are the Jelbics, who entered the area long ago after a long migration with several stops - but which began in northern Seleya. The Jelbics are based on an amalgam of nomadic Eurasian cultures such as the Tatars, Turkics, Mongols and Finno-Ugrics, and their modern descendants speak Jelbék, a conlang devised solely for the PT world. Barmenian, Vanukan, and Pontesian Jelbics speak their own distinct versions of the language, the primary difference being the source of loan-words. The Deltarian Dissuwan people speak Dissuwan (RL: Hungarian), which is linguistically separate but heavily influenced by Jelbék in terms of game history.

CULTURE

Jelbéks consist of the minority Steppe Jelbék (or Jeztaghé Jelbék), who are a largely a pastoral and nomadic people, bound by strict traditions, clan loyalties and cultural taboos. The majority of Jelbék are Settled Jelbék (or Jeztaghényr Jelbék), who live in the townships and cities, and have a culture vaguely similar to the Central Asian nations of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, etc. Steppe Jelbéks are often romanticized and idealized by Settled Jelbéks.
