Yes, I didn't know too much about Valkaro (still don't) when I wrote him into
my background for the ducks but I needed him to explain the presence of sorcery
on the Keet previous experience tables.

I assume that the sacrifice of flight happened through the self sacrifice of the
Mother of the Keets to power the net. One of my current campaigns is a quest to
take the Last Egg of Mother Keet/Duck back to the East Isles.
