I don't consider River Horse, Frog Woman, Mistress Calm, Rainbow Girl, Dew Maid and Ronance to be useful in Tribal Warfare for anybody yet they are still present in Nomad Gods. Even if the Tada-Shi have secretive practices, the spirits they worship are still contactable on the plains by anybody.

If they roamed Sacred Prax during the Good Old Days, then they are Praxians.

>The Golden Age folk of Prax (the Tada-shi) did have agriculture or

They did?
