Hi, there, one and all. Looking for a little cultural guidance.
I know that, going by previous posts that mention Romani culture, culture talk can get a little sticky, and I can appreciate that. Respect for other cultures should be paramount when talking about them, and I am pleased to see that here on the forum such talk is handled maturely and with respect. I was wondering if there is a particular 7th Sea culture that is analogous to the real world's Jewish culture, as I plan on pitting my players against the Inquisition in defense of a people. One of my players is even interested in playing a character from such a background. I'm still doing esearch on how Jewish families protected themselves throughout Europe around these times, as I very much want to get it right, and was curious if the 7th Sea setting has any foundation from which to work.
That would be the Yachidi. There are bits about them dotted about the Nations of Theah volumes, with more detail in the Crescent Empire book.
