Quick question from a newbie:

A person from Sossal is a Sossrim, a Sossrim speaks Sossic. But what's the general adjective for things from Sossal and by Sossrim folks?

For example, can you say Sossrim cuisine? Sossic handicraft? Sossalish architecture? Sossar art?

Sossi.

I don't have a source noted for it, but I found this in my notes: "Sossrim or Sossar (Use the first term for beings, and the second for items.)"

This thread has the potential to be sossome.

The adjective is "Sossar", as used in the FRCS 3e, page 111. There's only one instance of that, though, I couldn't find another in my notes. Sossal-related items are rarely mentioned.

There's also Sossar Bay, which may or may not be using the word as an adjective.

The people are always known as Sossrim, but occasionally Sossarhim.

Meanwhile, a Sosser (with an 'e') is a type of horse found there don't get the two confused! :) (That's in Champions of Valor.)
