  1. What are the capital crimes in Orlanthi society? I think I remember "Consorting with Chaos" being one. Crimes meritting formal capital punishment have probably put the criminal outside the honor system already.
  2. But what would they return with? In The Far Place no one can hear you scream?
  3. Remember that the intelligentsias' reaction to Tolkien was "Not another fucking elf. ..." and that was his friend. JRR is now a serious branch of literary scholarship.

  9. I love Andrew's stuff but my two most used and looted JC scenarios are Rocks Fall & Stone and Bone. Little adventures I can slot in quickly.
  10. A "bird" from a race cursed because of their support for Orlanth? A good lawspeaker could make a case. But then: A good lawspeaker could make a case. You could have both, with an argument between ancestors thrown in for more MGF.
