Kralorelan 'Pentan' Q&A

Questionnaire for Kralorelan Communities on the Steppes


The religion followed by these tragic exiles from all that is blessed, holy and truly human is almost a mimicking of those around them, and yet retains the rather staid nobility of the Eternal Dragons cult.
All communities have shrines to Kargzant and Halisayan.

NB Unless otherwise stated, all references to Magic are to the resource, not the rune.


1  All originates from Tarn Gat Ha, and all share in the heritage of that divine wonder.  Our way of 
    approaching life and order come from the various elements with which we are connected.  
    Which element of the Divine Dragon's Being is associated with your community?

15  He took us to the Far West, settling new caravanserai, making new caravan trails, and then
      descending on the Empire that awaited us, smashing it and taking much loot.  All the efficient

Interpreting the results:

The highest two runes are those 'governing' the clan and its future.
The highest three virtues (four if two tie for third)
Resources are allotted in the usual manner, except that wealth may never be the highest rating.
The Economy statements are descriptive, not prescriptive.  All Kralorelan 'Pentans'  will hunt, all will raid for slaves, and all will trade.  The statement indicates a particular interest in that activity.  

Guardian Abilities are decided from the answers to the following questions: 2 - 10  and one related to the two clan runes
