I don't see any huge religious Orlanthi precepts against adultery, but
there are cultural ones, just like in our society. Both Orlanth and Ernalda
were known to have other lovers, even after being married. Travelling
Orlanthi may tend to test the local waters, as it were, even if they are
married. In the ToDP game we play in Seattle, a few characters are
considered 'randy and loose', while others stay doggedly loyal to their
spouses. In goofy game terms, we use the Love Wife passion for this.

Of course, if the adultery is discovered, the wife (or husband) is free to
divorce, getting her brideprice returned and returning to her clan. Feuds
have started for less.

Now, rape is another matter completely. One that Orlanthi do not tolerate.

Neil

P.S. Thanks for the Questlines II responses I have received. Everyone who
sent me an e-mail is guaranteed of getting one once I get back to Seattle
from sunny Melbourne.
