I thought you did a great job dividing up the surviving populations and developing them into the Anayok, Jason. I have tried to think about the different people groups here as well and how they will develop into tribes. We have a really large Mexican population. We're not that far from the Cherokee populations in Oklahoma. I was thinking that the Osage populations in Oklahoma would probably start migrating between the Ozarks and the plains like they used to. Then you've got the pagan/liberal/freaky factions, the big money factions (wal-mart, tyson, JB hunt, georges) and tons of evangelicals and hicks.
I'd love to have some more linguists working on this for the names and all, but that'll be a while if it happens at all, I think.
That was my forte in college. I basically made my own linguistics degree in undergrad, double majoring in biblical studies (with emphasis on hebrew/greek) and russian, minoring in biblical greek, and taking as many language electives as i could squeeze in like madarin, transformational english grammar, history of the english language, and a couple weeks of kazakh while i was overseas.
I hope to get into some good fun with syncretizing the Osage with the Ozark. The hard part right now lies in making time for this among my various other projects.
And speaking of projects, any news on the status of the 5th world wiki?
