Cultural Keywords

From Testarta.com: My friend Robin writes fantasy novels. She uses the following list when she creates new cultures for her books.

It is especially helpful when I'm "stuck" and need a little push - the list frequently suggests an interesting facet or angle that I can expand upon.
