We finally have the list of the 15 known founding civilizations and their Dawn Incarnates and their Condcord Jewel's gemstone type. Any guesses on what civilization is inspired by what real world culture?

So far I believe Akharin Sangar is based on Iran (and I read somewhere ancient Sumaria) and Godsbreath is based on the American South. I think Tayyid is based on the Mungal Dynasty and its preceeding dynasty (very curious how that translates to D&D).

We know 3 are based on east Asian Cultures that are connected to each other via Dragon siblings.




Civilization Dawn Incarnate

1. Akharin Sangar Turquoise Lion

2. Atagua Yellow Quartz Kapok Tree

3. Dayawlongon Serpentine BanyanTree

4. Djaynai Water Opal Saltwater Salamander

5. Godsbreath Jasper Pecan Tree

6. San Citlán Fire Opal Xoloitzcuintle

7. Sensa Amber Scorpion

8. Shankhabhumi Moonstone Water Lily

9. Siabsungkoh Ruby Pangolin

10. Tayyib Sard Elephant

11. Tletepec Obsidian Eagle

12. Umizu Pearl Carp

13. Yeonido Amethyst Tiger

14 Yongjing White Jade Flowering Pear Tree

15. Zinda Bastite Caiman

Tletepec and San Citlan are both Mesoamerican themed. Their gems + their incarnates are heavily inspired by that region, and the names are a dead give away.

San Citlan sounds like a maybe post-colonial Mesoamerica. Tletepec is def an classic or post-classic Mesoamerican civilization.

I'm thinking San Citlan is the one based on Northern Mexico, which sugguests Tletepec might be the Venesuala one.

A suffusion of yellow
kimchi tacos! How glorious.

I was a bit iffy about having a civilisation in the Deep Ethereal, since I like my ethereal to be mysterious ephemera. However I do appreciate they have acknowledged the surreal surroundings in the write up and the Keening Gloom.

The Concord Jewels sound like Spelljammers though and planeshifting make it sound more like an MtG setting - which isnt necessarily bad

I like Sholeh being a dragon who has set up a UN Utopia

Radiant Citadel + Spelljammer = D&D Fantasy Star Trek?

The "preceding dynasty" for the Mughals would presumably be the Sultanate of Delhi, which had three dynasties, although it was one continual state.
