It's been a while since I updated anything in this journal entry...
Anyway, lately I've been slowly working out some new ideas for Aeluria, such as character development and working on terminologies for this world.
One such terminology is the use of the word 'Pride' in this universe, and its relationship to the conflict that I once used as this series title.
Recently I've been thinking of using the word pride, like used in reference to lion prides, for an alternative word for clans, or houses in the Aelurian world.
The term would not be exclusive to lions, open to all species/races in Aeluria.
I've also been rethinking what exactly the Pride Wars in view of this definition.
Originally the Pride Wars was going to be the wars between Feloria and Zigoria, but recently I've been thinking of using the name to refer to inner conflicts in between Felorian clans/prides before and after the war with the empire.
One thing I've thought is that Felorian clans/prides are divided into two societal and cultural groups. On one side you have the Arturian prides, descendants of the people who came to Feloria with the legendary king Eli Arturius 600 years before the time of 'The Sons of verganza' series, on the other you have the Felorian Native prides whose ancestral line predates the Arturians by several millenia.
The Pride Wars would be this rivalry coming to a head in the form of civil wars, feuds, and revolts.
The plan I had for the warlords uprising against the city-states is that it would be one of these wars, possibly the first of a long line of wars.
As the wars progress in ferocity however the lines between the Arturians and Felorians will blur as alliances formed between the wars will break down the culture barriers between the two sides.
As to how many of these wars will plague Feloria, I have not decided, I do know one will be called 'The Great Pride War' and it will possibly linked to the 'Prophecy of Mara Alisaedra' in some way.
