Naming Traditions

Unisex names

Self Given Names

Once a misty mountain child is old enough to have developed a sense of awareness of their world, they would choose their own name. The latest age by which they might remain nameless is until age 8. A name might be taken from a favoured story, the elements around them, in memory of a loved one or one that is simply made up.


Average technological level


A medical idea that surmises that illnesses function in their own food chain much like in the animal kingdom. And that one disease can be partly treated with another.
The practice of conducting surgery on still living bodies to treat injuries and deformities to repair, remove or adjust bodily tissue.

Focus Stones

A tetlachihuiani innovation meant to shorten the reaction time for transmutational metals.

Common Dress code


The typical male attire is a loincloth worn under a thick woolen cloak or poncho patterned with dark and light grey checkerboard designs at the waist and triangle fringes marking the neck.


Women typically wear a single large cloth wrapped around the body and pinned at the shoulder with a waist belt or sash. On top of this, a cloak could be worn, again pinned at the front, to protect against the canyon winds.

Art & Architecture


The chasm walls under the Zagrostone Belt are home to natural and expanded pocket caves where many take to residence.


There are many natural stone bridges that span the great chasm that splits the Zagrostone Belt.

Common Customs, traditions and rituals

Grand Tour

Pilgrims to the Black Ghost, travel from all around the valley to receive his healing attention. They naturally deliver stories and gifts from abroad which enchant local communities.   Eventually, they are encouraged to travel on their own. It is a traditional trip through the southern hanging valleys undertaken by upper-class young men of sufficient means when they come of age.

Historical figures

Hilchi One-Half

The revolting co-head of a cloud clan hill against Cizin which brought years of fighting inside the heart of the country. He is one of the the clans' immortal kings; most notable for leading a band of exiles into the Zagrostone Belt through Mist Shores; picking up taggers-on.


Beauty Ideals


Misty mountain men have a greyish disposition about their skin. This could be natural but it could also be from dried mud caked onto themselves.


Misty eyes are commonly shades of blue or grey with some being able to shift to black, supposedly.

Relationship Ideals

Monogamous Marriage

Monogamy is the norm among the mountain men and women. And due to the amount of travellers, many find spouses outside of their clan.
