[answer snip] Many thanks for the complete answer.

        Still I think that many in his tribe saw a king who married the daughter of
the Evil Emperor, the chief of their atavic foes, and granddaughter of a
Chaos Goddess to gain power from on high rather than from his people.

        It's a pity that my players didn't choose this campaign, otherwise I would
have turned you into a NPC: Ingkot's teacher and most trusted advisor, Joerg
Baumgartnersson - "What right have we to judge what is chaos? After all we
are the Devil's relatives!" ;)))

Rainbow Mounds.

        Maybe they are afraid of the Dragonwet plinth and so avoid the entire area?
Could this be an answer?

Essential KoS
- -------------

        DLoD too contains the description of an entire clan, with personalities and
customs, and IMO one of best (not very heroic) campaign series that have
been written for RQ3.

        Cheers,
        A talastari Alex.
