Round Two!

Second round!

What we need from you now is this:
Colorful & unusual SL-based tribal customs. We’re looking for primitive stuff mainly, anything from body-decoration to superstitions, taboos, burial rituals, etc. Remember to keep it brief – no big write ups or explanations. Just a sentence or three. Put separate ideas into separate posts, if you can.

If you’ve still got ideas for the first round, head down to the earlier post and leave them for us there!

    I’d love to see something along the lines of primitive demon summoning and binding. A tribe that binds demons into their adamant weapons.

    Perhaps how the nation of Zaran became the Za Bandits. How banditry became a custom or even an art form to them because perhaps they see all of that territory as their ancestral lands? So I am thinking along the lines of Vance’s writings — how banditry is considered the norm to them, if not a virtue. There might be a cool little list of how they see and treat strangers and interlopers upon their lands, perhaps depending on their number, how they dress, or whatever.

    The early start of the Thralls, and the growing pains of going from created warriors to a true race. Also potentially some of the Archaens could be devolving due to magical and environmental effects.

    Thrall Culture – How the first Thralls began using tattoos to signify their differences. Perhaps for the first time a mini-lexicon of what kinds of tattoos on which parts of the body have specific meaning? I think it would go a long way for players to have a decent writeup on this.

    Of the ancestral races, perhaps the Drune are characterized as being monochromatic, but an individual of the race may be any of a myriad of colors based on the magical experimentation of the prior age. Then explain how some of them divided themselves into tribes based on color. On the other hand, the Vandar are characterized as being polychromatic (tattoos), perhaps signifying that they are the protectors of the Drune of all colors from the attacks and raids of the sub-men.
