Changeover Terminology

After a long period of research, digging through rotting Greek, Roman, and Latin texts, Ryslen's scholars have put together a listing of "new" terminology with which to replace the now out-of-place "Weyr Terms"... Ryslen is hardly a weyr, with all that has been going on here in the last span of time.

Leaders - please feel free to adopt this (and adapt, if necessary) to fit your own not-exactly-a-weyr-anymore.
