The Tchilkbinian culture is one of the two cultures that was come up with for the first-ever Culture Creator instance. It lost 48.5 to 50 against the Hevanian culture, as judged by president George Sakr and guest judges Mark Barbar and Ramy Chamoun. The culture as such could do with a little more fil conducteur - which its opponent has - but the delegates who came up with it gave extreme attention to details, which made the culture very credible. However it goes a little out of the context of the assignment in that which humans become gods and live with them, when the assignment requests the people to be descended from very human scientists.

Tchlikba's Culture

by Gaelle Fenianos 17:26, 19 February 2012 (UTC) On Livon, Tchilkba was the only region which has citizens in it Watka (Nature ) challenged them ! 20 guys and girls accepted the challenge, all the rest were watching Each competitor presented their family, once he’s out, the family is forever vanished! Those were the rules imposed by Watka, who tricked them in only watching the first game! The competitors’ names weren’t written down because a new history was about to be made for Tchilkba!

The Ten Obstacles Imposed By Watka

  1. Only 10 Spalus (snakes) were on this continent, they had to bring a head each! (10 are in, 10 are out!)
  2. Woumkba (the great volcano) only gave 9 flames. Each competitor was given a torch to light ( 9 are in, 1 is out )
  3. There were 8 birds who gave birth to an egg each, they had to get an egg (8 are in, 1 is out )
  4. Holious ( the holy tree ) only has 7 leaves, they had to get a leave each after finding it ( 7 are in, 1 is out )
  5. Only 6 places in Livon had snow, they had to find a place and get it (6 are in, 1 is out )
  6. Souhare ( the desert of Tchilkba ) had one Cdoula ( cactus ) which has only 5 fruits, they had to get a fruit each ( 5 are in, 1 is out )
  7. They had to get till the end of Livon, where they had to get one of the 4 Oickus ( oily rocks ) ( 4 are in, 1 is out )
  8. They had to find Plumas (the 3 feathered eagle ) and get a feather each ( 3 are in, 1 is out )
  9. They had to kill Strogas and Patus ( the protectors of the Elie mountains) and get a head each ( 2 are in, 1 is out )
  10. The winner of the obstacles will be de terminated by who will bring the ONLY eye of Clopus ( the guardian of the flames )

The Gods And Their Apprentices

The last 3 challenges determined the 3 gods and the 3 survivors:

  • The winner is now Akbe, the supreme god
  • The 2nd ranked is now Ecde, the god of reason
  • The 3rd ranked is now Sculo, the god of passion

So those gods were chosen, they had the benefice to live forever! Watka, who lived for millions of years along the universe, decided to vanish, giving all its powers to the 3 newly chosen gods! But Akbe totally refused that idea, and kindly asked Watka to live forever; with its power in his hands... the deal was accepted :) All the tchilikbinians vanished, and the gods decided to choose 10 disciples, aka the 10 Akbecda, to have a function each:

  1. Tchile : apprentice of pleasure and desires
  2. Acde : the apprentice of water
  3. Egwa : the apprentice of wind
  4. Fla : the apprentice of fire
  5. Ewta : the apprentice of land
  6. Utcha : the apprentice of love and birth
  7. Woule : the apprentice of war and hate
  8. Tchoilu : apprentice of arts
  9. Likbeu : the apprentice of the body
  10. Kbutcha : the apprentice of the moods

Each Akbecda was the apprentice of a function of Watka, they learnt everything related to it and became responsible of it! They also had the advantage of living forever once they learnt their function till excellence... But all the final decisions were in the hands of the 3 gods!

A New History

Now that Tchilkba was emptied by Watka, they had to give birth to a new generation of tchilikbinians! So Akbe, Ecde and Sculo ordered Utcha to give birth to a hundred mortal men and a hundred mortal women, so that they could have a hundred families! Once those men and women were united by Utcha himself, they were all gathered in the Itchuwa place located in the middle of Tchilkba! The gods and theirs disciples told them the rules and the duties and the jobs they had to execute. They had 5 duties to do and 5 rules to live under and many jobs to choose from!

Five Duties

  • Visit the gods at least once each 10 days
  • Build a house for each family member, and one for all
  • Offer your everything to your gods, they will take care of you
  • Sacrifice one of your sons to become a god’s servitor
  • Share everything with all the Tchilkba citizens

Five Rules

  • Worship all the gods and apprentices
  • Ask for permission before doing anything
  • Give once a year, a certain percentage that you’ll choose, of what you have, to a god of your choice
  • Men have to be in the army to serve Tchilkba and women have to be in the hospitals to help injured soldiers. THIS RULE IS APPLIED IN WAR CASES ONLY!
  • You shall not visit a neighbor without telling a god or an apprentice about your visit at least 2 hours head time!

Tchilkba's New Division

The tchilikbinians lived in Tchilkba, the town. It was divided into two divisions: the mortals and the gods. The mortals had Tchilkba, the town; but the gods had all Livon including this town! They lived on one mountain, Elie Mountain, not so far from the town, with their disciples!

Greetings

Saying hello is done by the shaking of the feet of two people parallel to each other Saying good bye to one another is done by jumping one step forward (using the left foot) so the two people become side to side and then they hit their ankles together (this is done using right foot)

Cursing

Cursing at one another is done in one of the three following ways:

  1. Curving the tong at another person
  2. Rubbing ones nose
  3. Pulling the left ear in a downwards position

Be careful because these cursing techniques can be understand in a different way if not done properly for example : if you do not curve your tongue and instead just pull it out you will be proposing to some one And if by any chance you pull the right ear you will be saying I’m in love you

Ways of showing respect

While looking at our flag we are obligated to show respect by doing the following

  1. Getting up one knee (left for a man right for a woman)
  2. Extending the neck
  3. Putting our hand on our neck (right hand for a man left hand for a woman)
  4. Humming the national anthem or just humming

Cherishing the name of akbe is done by getting in a crouching position while standing and putting our hands on opposite knees ( for women it is done by putting their hands on the same feet ) and we keep our hands held up high to show that we see and believe When saying a phrase and we use a reference to akbe or any of the akbedica we should put our hands together and say hail akbe and for a woman instead of grabbing their hands they grab their ears When we curse in the name of akbe or any of the akbedica we should turn our backs to each other and close our eyes and hum the following phrase (mighty gods forgive us)

How love is shown

To show someone you like them or you’re attracted to them you do the following If it’s a girl ----> a man shakes but from left to right If it’s a man-----> a woman scratches her but and smiles in a way that all of her teeth are shown To propose you extend your tongue without curving it To say you love someone you pull down your right ear

Akbe day

Kevin Saliba 18:51, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

On akbe day it is custom to wear colorful clothing (the color depends on our mood and/or personality). And we walk all over shelkba holding hands singing the anthems of the gods and holding the flag up high (the biggest honor anyone can achieve is to be the carrier of the flag during akbe day)

Common things done during the day

When someone sneezes we slap him twice on the right cheek to throw out the nasty and cruel germs and to say bless you we put our thumbs on his forehead for 5 seconds. When someone eats and finds the meal delicious he does the following: 1. He wipes the plate he ate with on his face and kisses the chef on cheek But one someone eats and finds the meal terrible he wipes the plate to his but and farts When two lovers share a meal and they finish they bump their heads together and shake their elbows. To say thank you we stomp on the ground twice (for women it is 3 times) To apologize we slap ourselves twice (for men on the left cheek for women on the right cheek) If someone is hungry and wants to show it he simply bights his lips If someone gets hot he puts both hands on his head (when he is cold he puts them under his but) If someone calls him from behind he turns using his right side for women it is the left side
