"From the mingling of Saxons and Anglëi came the Lindish folk, whose deeds have since been quite mundane compared to their Southern cousins and kin, for few ever were troubled by the vicious war in those lands, and the kingdom of Nix was a distant legend." ~The Account of Men

Major language groups and dialects
Lindish is the overall language, but has several dialects, including Proper Lindish, Mërian East Lindish, Mërian West Lindish, Mogéntrian Lindish, and Trade Sea Lindish.
Culture and cultural heritage
Lindons draw their culture from their hybrid roots, hailing from Saxon and Anglëan descent. The mysterious legends of the North dominate the local folklore, and heavily influence how stories are retold, while tales of the historic battles the Saxons fought in the South give model heroes to inspire the youth.
Shared customary codes and values
For all Lindons, despite where they come from, good work ethic is expected. Noble bloodlines, however distant, are traced with due diligence in the Mërian settlements, while not as much in Lindon itself.

Common Etiquette rules
Lindons are an amicable people, generally, and are expected to greet one another as they pass. Short conversations may arise from this, and physical contact is often customary, especially between close friends or in matters of business.
Art & Architecture
Lindish art tends to focus on nature, as most live either agrarian lives and enjoy their scenery, or live in towns and cities, and wish to escape through art. Lindish architecture tends to be on the utilitarian side, focusing on function rather than aesthetics, and so the buildings themselves are often rather plain. In some cases, this plain nature is altered into particular designs, making simple, yet also beautiful structures.
Common Customs, traditions and rituals
Storytelling is most prominent among the Lindish traditions, passing old stories and legends of forgotten times down the generations.
Cannibalism, grave robbing

Simplicity is often seen as having its own beauty in some Lindish settlements, though those of the old country prefer some of the lavish things, remembering the lost days of Rhumnaria and the golden age of Saxonia. In the city of Saluët, particularly, lavishness is abhorred as vile, so there are extremes of ideals within the Lindish kind.
Men are generally the types for doing manual labor, and women expected to do more around the house, but this is not always the case. In the Mërian settlements, men and women are often seen doing much of the same tasks, and even competing for work, such is the competitive nature of that land in these days.
Men tend to court women most often, after the manner of the Anglëi, but it is fairly common to see the women conspire to get men to do so, or to set up a man with a woman who has her eyes on him.
Ideally, the men do work beyond the house, while the women keep the house itself in order. Men are expected to keep their wives happy, and the wife is expected to comfort her husband when he needs it, but to keep him at his best, lest he become too loose.
