What you have here are not really subtribes, but extinct tribes, Nsiki, or very small tribes. If you want to implement them, you need to say why they have split from the main three tribes, what the reaction of the main tribes was etc. Or that they as small group came with the three, maybe  put in the main entry with a additional small-lettered insertion  at the right position. 

I personally  think, that it is a not very good idea to add another four tribes, extinct or small. I would prefer to have true subtribes. Maybe they worship the bear or the eagle or the wolf AND another animal. So they would belong to one of the main tribes, but be a special group. As above - how are they seen by the people who are having just one animal as spirit guide? Which problems arise? These subgroups you can place in different regions as well - within the MAIN territory of each clan.

If you want to have extinct tribes, you can use the Great  floods (History table!)

There is an unfinished submission here , don't know, if you have to consider it as well. (probably not, it is not on the site)

I would like to bring the 3 great tribes, 4 small tribes idea back, for all who are interested, and also propose a discussion on where Eyelians did indeed come from. With developers on nearly every corner of the globe, surely someone would have found some ancient Eyelian ruins?

Hey Nsiki...my half-orcs also worship nature and animal spirits so that makes them similar to the Eyelians in that respect. Could an Eyelian ruin or artifacts be located in Caael'heroth by chance? Perhaps the Kaaer know of such thing and maybe interpret it as a temple of the Beastlord when in fact is an old Eyelian ruin. That would be super neat!  :D

The Eyelians fled their homecounty (whereever it was), because they were persecuted because of their belief. So you need to invent a people who did it. The next question is, did they build such sturdy houses, that they are still visible? What about the different body size?

Just something to consider, no opinion.

What I wanted to show you, Azhira, are these maps maps. There you can figure out, if it could be possible.

Azhira... I like the idea! And perhaps they have found an old temple built by the now extinct Bull-Tribe?
Alright... first, in order to have the persecutors, I need a location. Somewhere warm, or sub-tropical. A climate equivalent to Terra's Mexico, maybe.
And indeed, some of the Eyelian dwelling are sturdy indeed, as the Wolf clan uses stone as a building material. And what of the body size, Tal? Sorry, not sure if i follow you.

Might not be a problem, if the have chased away all small people..

But check the maps first, if it is possible at all! (What the timeline concerns)

 That is a pretty long and dangerous seavoyage for people which might not have been seatravellers! Maybe you have to come up with a myth about it? ;)

Actually, Judy and I were just talking about that... kind've a diminutive Moses, if you prefer. I'll probably give him a dove spirit guide as an easter egg.

I know the current homeland theory is Nymblamer (sic), but what about Yamalquan? I'm not proposing development there, but I think it would be nice to have the Eyelian's free from cultural attachments elsewhere, as they are such a unique people.
This way, we could hint at the Yamalquan continent, without actually investing resources over there.

Um..... 'dove' goes with 'Noah'.  Just make sure you have your 'Heroes of the Bible" straight before you start, or this could get a little strange... lol

Sorry bard... I knew that....
God.....
That's me running on two hours of sleep...
Well.
I need a sea to part.

But back to the discussion, what do y'all think of a Yamalquan homeland?

I thought you were thinking of an origin in Northern Sarvonia? Did I miss some posts?

Do you want to mention their origin? Frankly, I would do nothing which determines anything about Yamalquai now. Perhaps future developers would like to have there no humans  living at all? And,  if you look at the map, it is a very, very long voyage for a premedieval people which was not probably not even a seafaring nation, but a few people who FLED. Why do you want to change their mysterious past now and give them a home if not for the purpose of creating something else for a known place?

That was one proposition, by Az, but I'm not sure if it entirely fits, in retrospect. However, I have no problem with the Eyelians once having a presence there- maybe like the Viking remenats in Eastern Canada?

It's no big deal...but if the ancient Eyelians were ever near Northern Sarvonia and they left some artifacts or temples, then I thought it would be neat if the Kaaer found them and used them. If it doesn't work, then that's fine.  :)

No, I def. like the idea of the Eyelians having a settlement at one point- I just don't think that should be their homeland. But, ya, I could toss some ruins up there for you ;)

As I was asked about my input here: I would rule out Yamalquain, this is somewhere else, we have defined that aside from the name not much should be known about it for now, so we should leave it at that.

Maybe some Eyelians could have reached Southern Sarvonia when coming from Nybelmar, others ended up in Northern Sarvonia after having lost contact with the rest of the ships?
