Thank you very much. That makes it far easier to follow/read.
Glad to be of assistance! I know there's an enormous amount of discussion going on in that thread, and it can be difficult to sort through that to get to the actual developer responses.

As a minor request, could you put a marker in the next time you update the list so it is clear where the new stuff starts?

Or both, most likely.
I don't think there's any evidence that the Tengese people and culture originated in the West or on the Blessed Isle, at least as per Blood and Salt. Whether the Southwest as a whole counts as "South" or "West" for linguistic purposes is an open question, but given the West's overall isolation, I'd expect the landbound Southwest to be more closely culturally connected to the South. (For reasons of simplicity, playability, and wordcount, it's best to keep the language section of character creation as straightforward as possible, which means sticking with the admittedly over-stylized Directional language categories rather than creating whole new language categories for new players to puzzle over.)

I'd expect that the Tengese language would incorporate significant lexical borrowing from Seatongue. Low Realm, less so; that's the language of the Realm peasantry, and I doubt there's significant interaction between the Realm's lower classes and the Tengese, at least no more so than any other satrapy.

For that matter, if a mortal asks her to make him into a deadly sword, is there anything stopping her from forging him into a pretty charm bracelet instead (assuming she's not sorcerously bound, of course)?
"If I had the shaping of all things, as I have for those I reforge ... both harmony and happiness should fill the world."
