Welcome to the discussion page for the The Burying Season one shot. Here you can feel free to ask me out of game questions, check some game resources, vocab and formatting stuff, etc. I'm going to start by listing some reference material and formatting below.
This is an image of what a lot of the free standing buildings that exist around here are likely to look like. Most of the people in Upperborough live in large tents with permanent buildings usually being something for things like shops, temples, or the periodic residence for those who need or prefer something more settled.
If you are writing in a language that isn't common make sure to put it behind a spoiler tag with a spoiler that indicates what one might need to read it.
The environment of the surrounding area is akin to the American great plains in terms of environment and the American Southwest. So think rolling open plains alongside rough badlands. Any more info would be obtainable through the use of Knowledge (geography) in game if you are interested.
Make sure to check out the world wiki starting Here. After that punch in the frontier tag in the search bar on obsidian portal and it should help fill in a lot of gaps.
The Imperium: the massive nation that the frontiersmen owe fealty to. They have a base south of here where one of their legions operates. They maintain the roads and defend the farming villages around the town of Lowerborough. Think NCR from Fallout New Vegas
Frontiersmen: The rough and tumble farmsteaders of the region, Frontiersmen are the descendants of Imperials (often of the Octavian, Calvan, and Anastasian lands) who migrated here once the land was opened to settling by the Imperium. Though descended from Imperial citizens they have developed into their own unique culture and both see each other as separate people now.
Nomads: The native people of this land the Nomads have lived here since time immemorial. They roam the lands on foot and horseback surviving off the lands as few others can. Their relationship with the Imperials and Frontiersmen is often tense as these new groups move into their traditional lands and set up shop forcing them to relocate. That being said they do have a level of respect for each other as many Nomad clans fought side by side with Imperial Legions during the Orc wars over 2 centuries ago. Though nomads include humans it also encompasses other races like feralfolk, orcs, nomad born half-orcs, halflings, hobgoblins, goblins, and Ironborn.
Slivic: the language of the nomads. Sounds like Navajo or Apache.
Saradaga: Known as The Sun Language Saradaga is the language of the people of the city of Jaddah Yafif. It has roots in Draconic, Igan, and their own primitive proto-language. It sounds arabic.
