Red Hair Tribe Q&A

Clan Questionnaire for the Ten Clans of the Red Hair Tribe

Since there are but ten clans this is, of course, more restrictive than the other Q&As.

All of the clans have shrines to Kargzant, the Red Khan and ma-Tamara.  
All are Horse herders.

1  We are the righteous children of Pent and of the Empire.  We are new, and we are 
    growing.  Once there was a clan.  Now there are ten.  How do you see yourselves?

a  We are of Pent
b  We are of the Empire
c  We are the best of both

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 Red Hair Tribesfolk 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, 4, 6, 8, 9
 and one related to the two clan runes
