An alarach (pronounced AH-lah-rock, alternatively a suniomin or just a suni) is a standalone layer, metalayer, or cosmos, not part of any single-unit or common-canon groups with other alarachs, though they may be grouped together in layer clusters/metaalarachs/metalarachs, which are a more formalized or organizational structure, not literally reflected in the internal history, narrative, or cosmology of each individual alarach.

History[edit | edit source]

The term alarach comes from a word for the concept in the exosprache/intrasprache spoken by the coiner in fhaer homeworld in fhaer system. "Suniomin" is a derivation of Hurrian (an ancient language of the Middle-East) šuḫniōmīn, a neologism compound combining the words for "wall" and "land", hence "walled land", as a metaphor for the separateness alarachs expereince from each other, and can be shortened to just suni.
