Major language groups and dialects

Ezirandi, with mixed Nuairan, have created a language unique to the Venidan. It combines terminology from both languages, as well as the common trade tongue, to create a dialect all their own.


Gender Ideals

The Venidan believe in merit, rather than enforcing the gender ideals of their Ezirandi forebears. Men and women both participate in the legal system, purchase and sell property, inherit and bequeath wealth, and participate in other financial activities, and all are expected to contribute to the subsistence of their community.
