Don't worry so much about the individual aspects and subcults. Sylila is not Sartar and the Sylilings (and Talastarings) do not necessarily have the same Adventurous, Allfather, Thunderer categorization.

Hilly lands with lots of small farms and plenty of woods. Hot in summer, cool in winter. Clans of free peasants ruled by Lunarized (as well as Dara Happa emulating) nobles bloodlines who look to Jillaro and Thubana. Excellent light horsemen, although most peasants fight from foot.

Daysenerus? Who would dare speak that name? Tharkantus? Who would dare speak that name? This is the Son of Yelm, whose temple has been here since the dark times following the Gbaji Wars (although it has been sacked and destroyed several times). His worshipers are stubborn and proud, and they serve as mercenaries to the Sultan or other rich and powerful nobles.
