Lenshi Q&A

Clan Questionnaire for Lenshi clans

Pentan clans practise a wide variety of religious and economic lifestyles, and have a bewildering array of relationships and taboos.  These questionnaires depict those peoples who draw upon the overall Lenshi heritage.

All Lenshi clans have shrines to Hurfor the Kargzant and la-Unguriant, and their economies include Hunting and Horse Herding.
The Zaytenerae

14  Agartu Say adopted the name and title of Sheng Seleris and established the Great
      Khanate.  He swept away his enemies to east, south, and west, and showed us how
      great we can be when we unite as the peoples of Pent.  We fought many, and looted
      many.  He led his trusted horde to the Red Moon itself, and took the riches there.
      In the end, however, he fell to the clutches of Yara, since she punishes greatest as
      least.  Which of the many exploits of those years do you best remember?

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.
The Economy statements are descriptive, not prescriptive.  All Lenshi will hunt, all will raid for slaves, and all will trade.  The statement indicates a particular interest in that activity.  The presence of non-horse herds indicates that the clan is not of the Pure Horse peoples.

Guardian Abilities are decided from the answers to the following questions:
5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13, 19, 20 and one related to the two clan runes
