Great find Lancelot! And a very interesting read. I'd always thought that maybe it was a mixture of the mysticism of the Druids from the Isle of Mann (Isle of Mona during the time of the Roman Empire), the Timorese, Japanese isolationism, and Fijian exoticism. But you found something where most of the aspects of the thousand islands are present in one place! Awesome. What other cultures do you find have distinct real-world inspirations (aside from the obvious like Yi Ti and East Asians or Mongols and the Dothrak)?
