How do the spirit world differ between Waha and Daka Fal shamans? It is said the outlook is similar to everyones culture. The Rulebook gives an example for Praxian culture which is seemingly Waha based: herds etc.

Would a Daka Fal shaman see it in different way? Waha would be based on herds and surviving with clan/tribe in mundane world, Daka Fal would be considered in ancestors and  continuation of family traditions and knowledge/wisdom and ofcourse the defferentiation of Life and death. If Daka Fal shaman would see it based on this, i'll come up with only some very abstract ideas... Waha seem to be a cult for a larger society while Daka Fal seem to be almost a private cult where a shaman teaches their apprentices.

Is it possible for anyone else than a shaman to travel to Spirit world? Discorporation runespell seems to handle only the moving discorporated in mundane world. 

Also is the Land of the Dead situated in Spirit world? Are The Dead people to Be found there or somewhere in other plains? 

Would be very nice to find writings of Rune Quest world from the perspective of a shaman.

I see the Summon specific ancestor or incarnate ancestor runespells very powerful, If any ancestral Heroes are known... ...and the bloodlines go back to Grandfather Mortal...

A Praxian Daka Fal shaman would have a spirit world very similar to a waha shaman. Where a waha shaman might journey out to meet Waha himself in the Herd Guard, a Daka Fal shaman would work around the great fire at the centre of the herd and summon ancestor there among friends.

Waha is the Culture Hero, Daka Fal is the ancestor guide, keep the clan connected with their past. For many Waha is their ancestor.

Yes, some shaman can take others with them. They have Shamanic abilities like Spirit Traveller, Discorporate other or even Spirit Snatch. Mostly in great ceremonies, the Axix Mundi is expanded to include all but lay members and everyone is in the spirit world around the fire. Participants never wander off they know they won't return.

The Land of the Dead, is a bit more complex as each great/spirit god has their own. They lie beyond Daka Fal's court of Judgement. Even Daka Fal cannot enter another god's afterlife, but he can call them out.

Yes, look at a specific version of this from Waha - Call Founder on page 322. A Waha shaman who is also a Daka Fal priest would be able to incarnate a Founder. This is the realm of powerful magics. The summoner would need to be powerful enough to manage it.
