[unparsed]Does your conculture refer to your offspring and their offspring and their offspring etc. as your descendants?
When they talk about events in their ancestors’ lives, do they refer to “ascending to the Age of the Antonines” or the like? (cf. Edmund Gibbons’s writings.)
In keeping with talking as if the past were below the present and the future were above the present, Adpihi and Reptigan effectively call the people [i:226cf546be]we[/i:226cf546be] would call “descendants”, something like “ascendants” instead.
If one were to use the term “descendant”, they’d take that to mean “antecessor” or “ancestor” or “predecessor” or somesuch.
The past “is” down, and down “is” past.
The future “is” up, and up “is” in future.

In my multiracial fantasy builtworld,
I think the Humans will go with
But I think both Elves and Dwarves will go with
I haven’t decided about MerCentaurs yet?
