About Cintem The Cintemi are an ancient and respected people, known for their masterful steel, knowledgeable minds, and beautiful sky farms, hail from an unknown place lost to the millennium of time. They call themselves "ol-Cintémpros" or "the river-people-of-the-Sky-Father" sometimes translated as "the river-children-of-the-Sky-Father." The language these people speak, Cintem, is widely considered to be the language of science, art, and literature, and is considered to be a great candidate for a universal, worldwide language, due to its simple grammar and script. Cintem spread through the world not just by conquest, but by excellence in diplomacy. Several times throughout history, the Cintemi managed to strike deals with foreign powers to allow Cintemi settlers to live and work in the foreign nation, in exchange for money, territory, etc. This was an attempt to build up internal problems in foreign nations for the nation of Cintempax to quickly take advantage of and seize goods. Conquest supported diplomacy and diplomacy supported conquest. Through this strategy, Cintempax grew and grew and grew, whilst the people became less poor, had access to technology many other nations could never grasp the concept of, and felt they were a part of something that was way bigger than themselves.
