The Dregs :- Art Preview

Recommended Posts

We're doing a deep dive on the lesser folk of Clearwine. No Runelords here. Just regular folk. Who work or not as the chance may be. Kalf here fancies himself a poet although he earns his coin with hard work as a charcoal carrier and stickpicker.  Initiate of none of the Gods and happy that way.

lovely portrait, but he's not going to get far with that attitude 😄

Nice!

Speaking of just-regular-folk, has there been any substantive discussion of who does the tattoos in Orlanthi society?  And for whom?  Kalf here is a stickpicker, but how does his ink stack up against others in Clearwine?  I know plenty of people of very little means who still manage to sport some impressive body art.  And, er, vice versa.

I see Kalf's Air rune took a nick.  Is he going to have that touched up, or does he spin a story about taking a scar in battle?

!i!

As a matter of fact I have been discussing that very subject earlier today. 

The snake ink is his clan marking (which I'll come back to in a later post) (aka when I remember) 

His air rune was likely done at clearwines light bringer temple, likely at his adult iniation. 

Temples maintain both tatto artists and some priests choose to learn their art. 

 

There's a lot more to say about the subject but there's a chasoium book in the works that may shed more light on the subject
