Zerel Fan Mask
1  The Sun has been experienced in many forms over the long tale of the world.  In the beginning of 
    your long tale which of the Triple Manifestation is most important for you?

a  The Early Light
b  The Rising Orb
c  The Victorious Zenith
d  The united Zerel Fan
e  The message of the Prophet

c  2 checks to Victory rune and Courage virtue
d  Checks to Light, Fire, Victory and Harmony runes
e  2 checks to Magic resource and Optimist virtue


2  The next manifestation was the Solar Storm who was both King and God.  He ruled with majesty
    and might, filling the long tale with wars against the southlands.  He was ended by the evil king of
    the south, even though his ghost remained.  Which element of his chapter of the long tale do you
    recite with strongest voice?

a  He was the great God King
b  He was smiter of the south

d  2 checks to Truth rune


3  After the fall of the Solar Storm we were shattered into small groups of dispirited wanderers, and a
    few enthusiastic followers of the New Prophet.  Sekever came and united us, gave us victory and 
    vengeance, and became God Emperor in our long tale.  Which part of his story moves you most?

4  The coming of Death made sacrifice more costly.  Some of us avoided it unless absolutely
    necessary, others entered into it with even greater fervour.  How is your long tale flavoured?

a  With agony
b  With fervour
c  With hard-won understanding

Answers
a  Optimist checks become Pessimist virtue
b  Checks to Death rune, Magic resource and Pious virtue

5  The southern barbarians could not cope with the wondrous variety of spirits within the world.
    They undertook a process they still call 'The Balancing' which slaughtered their spiritual wealth.
    Some of the spirits and their followers escaped and sought refuge with us.  Did you give sanctuary

8  Beyond hope and exceeding expectation, in refutation of the understood Law of Death, Sekever
    returned!  This time he prepared for war with the south by allying with those we had thought
    monsters, and by making pacts with those who resisted the crushing rule of those they call the

10  The War Dragons counter-attacked, hatefully striking not only at Sekever's Righteous
      Empire, but also at Basko's home, trying to seize control of his soul as part of their bizarre and

11  There were many wars during this era, and we weathered them through our strength, the power
      of Zerel Fan's Six Manifestations, and making wise alliances.  While we were recovering the
      Kralorelan Exarchs came north and conquered us.
      What lesson did you learn most deeply from these events?

15  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, except that wealth may never be the highest rating.
The Economy statements are descriptive, not prescriptive.  All Chern Durelite '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, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10 and one related to the two clan runes
