Dark Sun: Gulg
The term People in Gulg refers to more than simply the denizens of that place; People refers to subcultures within the city which reach across each Dagada and even beyond the city walls. While a Dagada serves a purpose within the city, People affects tradition and culture. Individuals from the same People might never meet, but even strangers from the same People will treat each other like family. Young children are taught to trust strangers if they are of the same People. People are often identified by specific necklaces, beads, feathers, hair style, or clothing.
