Trouble in the Dales
The Agunti, sometimes called ‘The First Men’, are now little more than a memory: an ancient, near mythical progenitor of all human civilization.
How they looked—>
The Agunti are believed to have been Xanadu’s first human civilization. The ancient city of Aguntum, from which the Agunti gain their name, existed on (name of island) west of (name of continent). Little is known of the actual Agunti culture, as almost all of it was destroyed when Aguntum was drowned in lava during the Sundering. It is known that the survivors of this lost civilization sought refuge along the coast of western (name of continent), eventually helping to found the nation of (name of nation in grasslands). The history of the Agunti may be lost to time and the (name of volcano), but their cultural influences can be seen in many of (continent’s) current civilizations.
Due to the devastation caused by the Sundering, little is known of ancient Agunti culture. (blurb about peoples). Many stylistic elements of their culture are still copied to this day. A newly discovered piece of authentic Agunti jewelry or architecture can trigger a design trend followed throughout (continent).
The Agunti people spoke a language also known as Agunti or Ancient Agunti. Even though it hasn’t been actively spoken for millennia, it’s linguistic legacy is carried on in such languages as (some regional languages). Some artifacts recovered from this ancient people also show signs of other strange languages, though the origins or use of these can only be guessed at.
Another popular way in which people of today adopt Agunti culture, is by giving themselves of their children the archaic names found on artifacts, wall mosaics, or manuscripts. Agunti names almost always begin with a vowel, and never include a surname. Popular male names include (some fukken names), while females are called (more fukken names).
Little to no actual clothing from Aguntum has survived the millennia, but depictions of Agunti dress can sometimes be found painted on ancient walls or artifacts. These depictions show that deep green and crimson were popular colors among the nobility, a palate which is often followed by those wishing to be perceived as having strong Agunti heritage.
