While about a week ago we had the interesting topic about Praxian hyena and the path memory of RW hyenae, my time was a bit limited to reply. All in all, many of you made it very clear what it comes to collecting the parts of Genert...

I was only worried that before we add all those niceties to Garzeen`s Genert-Hyena connection, things should be decided from Praxian view of culture, IMHO. I mean I think that maybe too often we (still) view the Praxian culture from "outlander" perspective.

Yea, I have it. By "magazine" here, I actually referred a finnish mag called "The World of Science" and about its articles on path memory that the RW brown hyenae seem to have.

I`m really awaiting if we`re gonna see this in some future release. Whoa!
