And if vadrus came back Gargath would no longer bethe head of the gang, only second in command at most. I see.

Except the gangs have splintered, and generally don't get along.

Gagarth leads the most unrepentent gang, but is largely confined to the Wastelands.

Valind leads the biggest gang, and they still rule the Glacier.

Ygg has his little island gang, sometimes hangs with Valind, and sometimes goes off to join the Wolf Pirates.

Iphara mostly hangs out in the Sea of Fog, but sometimes pops up elsewhere.

You might say that Storm Bull is the most successful gang leader, and he's got a lot of folk at the Block and scattered around Dragon Pass.

Gorgorma and Monster Man... So, you have five very prominent goddesses in the big Dara Happan myth complex. You have Ourania, who rules the domestic life of the Sky Dome, Dendara, wife of Yelm, E

Yeah, Shargash is everywhere. Often secondary, sometimes primary.  Ernalda:  There's a basic and fundamental difference going on here. Orlanth's position as King of the Gods is not inherent.

OK. PG Wodehouse was a British author who wrote comedies about weird upper-class families, mostly. The most famous are the “Jeeves & Wooster” books, in which a phenomenally capable butler (Jeeves)

The what now?

Nothing like Watergate, rest assured.

Stormgate is a local feature in the sky, the hole from which Umath emerged to spiral his way to the center of the sky, disrupting the complacent eight planetary sons of Yelm, colliding with who we know as Shargash, crashing into the north pillar, getting dismembered in the Underworld after having been caught in flagrante delicto fathering a new entity with Verithurus(a).

This last myth about Umath (minus the Lunar affair) is documented in the Copper Tablets, in the Guide, in Glorious ReAscent of Yelm, and in Heortling Mythology.

If you don't have these resources, here's a glimpse at Umath's entry into the sky, and at the situation before he entered:

Meaning everything points towards Vadrus return beeing trouble for everyone. Excelent. It's a pitty I cant use this idea and tand a campaign in the pre Umath Golden Age easily. 🙁

Well, one of those campaigns would have to go on a non-linear exchange of mythic paths. Not impossible in Godtime, but makes storytelling and following the story quite difficult.

You're giving me the impression that Vadrus and Ernalda really didn't get along. Not that I think there was a lot of people he got along with. What about Heler?

Got force-married by Vadrus when he slew Enkoshons, and Heler emerged as the Blue Lady. Iphara is their love-child, I think.

No idea whether Vadrus recognized his old lay when he and the Helerings may have gotten into some ruffles.

(bolding mine)

Uh, that sounds really bad.

Basically, Alkoth's reign of Terror created a border for how far the Only Old One's Shadowlords could cast their "net" of Unity and mutual support. The Shadowlords never made contact with anyone north of the survival sites named in the Guide or History of the Heortling Peoples.

And they were active in the region when Jenarong was just starting to put a semblance of Anaxial's Dara Happa back together. The Battle of I Fought We Won kicked off the Shadowlords' mission of making contact with everybody who had contributed to the Unity Battle (which had averted the Chaos Horde from making their way through Dragon Pass towards the Spike, so they had to go via Genert's Garden). I doubt that they managed to find all contributors, but a significant number of people were willing to join the alliance of the Only Old One and King Heort, and a few other heroes from I Fought We Won from smaller survival groups. Both Heort and the Shadowlords had been ranging the devastation already during the worst of the Greater Darkness before I Fought We Won, and knew about survivors and how to get there. When a hope of a post-apocalyptic period set in after IFWW, they quickly shared that knowledge with other hidden survivors, who would slowly come out of hiding.

Also, I should have asked. Do the Alkothi even appear in any of the other cities without it causing a majour stir?

As mercenaries. Much like Storm Bulls may accompany traders' caravans.

As civil servants or solders summoned by imperial authority.

As merchants, grooms/brides... They are considered to be humans, these days.

As raiders (mainly in Darjiin), but that might qualify as major stir at least locally.

That's ... a dramatic way to be born to say the least. When did this happen? That's defenitely the kind of event I'd want to have the players experience once they'd gotten comfortable enough with the Golden Age and Murharzarm's reign if i choose to place the campaign (or at least  some part of it) there.

1 hour ago, Joerg said:

Actually, the more I think about it the more it feels like the best way to really use this is to have the  players get aquainted with Vadrus (and the other Storm gods) and his followers in all their  glory during the God Wars.

Then after everyone is happy that he's gone, and a proper amount of in-game time has passed, have him return.

This would make the campaign a lot more ambitious, unfortunately, but its to much of a waste to introduce Vadrus return to players who can't recognize him or even partially understand what his return would mean. I'd need to build up an emotional connection between him and my players first or his revival would be wasted.

Good enough to allow a Vadrus cult to have Heler as an Associated deity if you ask me.

Or is it important the deities in question actually like each other and want to be Associated?

So, here's the thing, imho: 

A lot of the negative information we have on Vadrus is from the perspective of Orlanthi, followers of a different, and arguably rival, cult. 

It's a bit like reading a Catholic writer to learn about Gnosticism. The information is likely... skewed. 

Did Vadrudi see themselves as a "Hurt Everything Clan"? Did they see their exploits as purely destructive? Did they see their pairings as abductions, their internal structure as rule of the strongest? We have no idea. Because they pretty much died out during the Greater Darkness, and whatever survivors clung on either turned to animism, other gods, or were converted to Orlanthism/Lightbringer cult in the Dawn Age. 

I'm not suggesting that all we know is wrong and actually Vadrus was a completely misunderstood goody-two-shoes, but let's be brutally honest, his mythical function is kinda just to serve as a foil to Orlanth, someone on which to heap most negative Storm aspects, and that should, if nothing else, inspire intrepid myth-makers to imagine other perspective, and the version that was forgotten.

As for the Alkothi. I might be in the minority here, but I can't imagine a large city-state functioning without street-sweepers, scullery maids, garbage collectors, potterers, basket-weavers, cooks, clothes-washers, bakers, lamp-lighters, bricklayers, masons, carpenters, redsmiths, barbers, brewers, sex workers, poets, scribes, weavers, midwives, wetnurses, tanners, etc. etc. 

In other words, I just can't imagine the City of Hell, the Capital of Murder, the Enclosure of Gore to be ALL that different from most other major cities in the sense that the vast majority of people inside it are going to be ordinary Joe Schmoes, who may or may not think that bloodsport and demon visitors or whatever is just one of those things that you gotta get used to, ya know?

Both her mother Asrelia and her grandmother Gata could when they were at the fertile "age".

I haven't seen any explanation why the Earth had these generational hand-overs. Especially the crone retirement of Asrelia is a bit of a puzzle. Ernalda is active in the Golden and Storm Age, but Orlanthi myths tell about Asrelia being the destined wife of Umath that didn't come to pass.

The lineage of Earth goddesses (Asrelia -> Ernalda -> Voria, and their dark sisters) does show signs of being one goddess so vast that people approach the various aspects as if they were entirely separate. However, as worshippers undergo their own transitions, they transfer their initiation without penalty from one to the next.

Ah, that's what hadme confused. I knew hthay ad some backgrond in the Pelorian bowl and though they were just a nomadic offshoot (dammit I don't know how to spell this word at all) of the Dara Happans.

It's a bit more complex. The Pentan ancestors are from Pent and thereabouts, but spread across Peloria and conquered most of it (as chariot riders at the time), reviving the Yelm cult and reviving the institution of Emperor, and while they were driven out in the early First Age (at the battle of Argentium Thri’ile in 230), they have always basically regarded themselves as the true rulers of Peloria in exile. There is a bit more to it - the Pentan ancestors also became essentially merged with the rider culture from around Saird and switched from chariots to cavalry, and the Pure Horse Tribe became their priestly caste, which has its own traditions around sovereignty. They aren't exactly an offshoot, the main Kargzant culture appears native to Pent, but the Yu-Kargzant cult and the Pure Horse Tribe (and adopting riding rather than chariots) could be regarded as things that Pentan culture adopted in the period (from pre-Dawn to early First Age) during which they ruled most of Peloria. Pentan and Dara Happen culture had a lot of intermixing and cross over in that period - and have mostly tried to keep very separate ever since, with significant animosity.

While there are a few interesting exceptions over the years (the Char-Un in particular), mostly the nomads have always retained great animosity towards the Dara Happens, and this absolutely exploded under Sheng Seleris.

While the Grazelanders are to my knowledge all Pure horse (exept the Vendref).

Yes. They've just changed their relationship to the Earth, and grown reliant on the Vendref, but most of their traditions are Pure Horse Tribe. The Char-Un are also Pure Horse tribe, with some Lunarisation (and recognition of the Red Emperor as the Imperial Sun Emperor). 

We know so little about the origins of the Pentan Storm tribes that I don't even know if there is animosity between the Storm and Solar tribes or not - it is possible that the Storm tribes have always been there, and we just haven't known, given how much of what we know of the history of Pent is basically about the Pentan tribes in Peloria.

I kind of like this interpretation though. What happens in Alkoth should seem entirely normal to the Alkothi themselves, even if the rest of the world is horrified by it.

There may be certain rites in the Enclosure that could be described as trollish - possibly including necrophagy as a form of magical union with the deceased. I don't think that the equivalent of butcher Haarmann will be found in the less sanctified alleyways of the Green City, though, except possibly as a resident ogre family.

Orlanth never had the Godtime to grow old, so he lacks the Elder aspect and relies on Lankhor Mhy instead. Yelm's Elder aspects seem to be a loan from Dayzatar, too.

No, the goat herders of the Arcos Valley were nomadic after the Ice came, and may have accepted refugees from Nivorah as their new magical chiefs, bringing chariots and Kargzant/Reladivus/Lightfore magics which allowed them to come through the Greater Darkness rather ahead of the sedentary folks of Dara Happa who needed awakening from the Greater Darkness apathy.

I have yet to play Six Ages: Ride Like the Storm, but IMO the cult of Hyalor comes from Genert's Garden, where Yamsur and his Hippogriff riders were the allies of Genert who fought at Earthfall and were as badly decimated as the Pure Horse Folk of Prax at Alavan Argay in 1250. Hyalor may have led some of the survivors into the Arcos basin and beyond, meeting the Nivorans fleeing the approaching glacier, and spreading horse breaking for riding.

They'd certainly clamor to stop the steal and march on whichever seat of power there is. Complete with weird horned agitators... Grudges are what Vadrus and his get are good at.

It is somewhat possible that Aerlit, the father of Malkion and thereby ancestor of the Westerners, was a by-blow of Vadrus, too.

Hyalor may have led some of the survivors into the Arcos basin and beyond, meeting the Nivorans fleeing the approaching glacier, and spreading horse breaking for riding.

In the lore of the game, Hyalor was the son of Yamsur by a Nivoran woman (Yamsur and Hippogriff traveled a lot, and visited Nivorah fairly often; according to the Nivorans Yamsur was Elmal's charming but feckless brother). The wounding of Hippogriff and her becoming Horse (thanks to Hyalor) happened in Nivorah itself, and the Nivorans had thus already developed an equestrian tradition (in two factions, one of Riders following Hyalor, and one of chariot-riding Wheels following Samnal, one of Elmal's sons) before they left the city.

Of course, that's the in-universe lore that the Riders are telling themselves generations later, and there are several points in these narratives and myths that clearly contradict each other and make clear that the received stories aren't necessarily 100% accurate (and in fact they've actually forgotten Hyalor's connection to Yamsur entirely, and it's something you can rediscover in-game by picking the right option in a Heroquest ritual where you ride to the Gods War).

After that said trickster would probably be  giggling with glee over that it actually worked. Only to discoverthat Vadrus is actually a worse (if more fun) boss than Orlanth.

This brings up a question I've been meaning to ask.

What is the Dara Happan view on tricksters? I'd assume they really dislike them and was unsure if it was really worth asking but at the same time weirder things have happened than the Dara Happans actually tllerating tricksters.

So do you have any idea which it is?

Another thing I've been wondering about is the Bright Empire. I know a little about it but only from an Orlanthi perspective.

What is the Dara Happan perspective on that era?

Tricksters violate the Harmony of the Solar Court, so Dara Happans don't like them one bit.

  • Arkat/Gbaji was a Trickster and look how that turned out.
  • The God Learners were taught by a Trickster and nothing good came of them.
  • The EWF Dragons ate Tricksters and were consumed from within.

Really dislike them sums it up nicely. Unlike the Orlanthi, the Dara Happans don't have a native cult protecting Tricksters. The Lunars introduced Danfive Xaron as a possible career change, but that cult isn't fun at all.

Best thing that ever happened within history, alas, it didn't last. They even received tame Storm worshipers in their neighborhood, and their Iron Vrok brought order and Justice to all of central Genertela south of the mountains. The Digijelm got crippled, and the other Elder Races participated in the Dorastan Council, accepting the Imperial Justice of the Dara Happan Empire.

The arrival of Arkat Gbaji created problems in the far southwest, but Palangio managed to contain the problem, sealing the Deceiver to Hell.

But a rebellious descendant of a rebellious lineage of Storm worshipers abused the Underworld Summons of Bijiif to release Gbaji, and although he soon regretted doing that, the damage was done, and Gbaji and his Storm rebel followers marched against the Bright Empire.

Gbaji never invaded Dara Happa himself, but the Storm rebels used the opportunity to invade Dara Happa after the Emperor had sent his best forces to the aid of Dorastor against Gbaji and his Digijelm followers. The emperor was forced to abdicate, an upstart barbarian with a weak lineage from Lodril became Overseer of Dara Happa, and only the wisdom of the Great Advisor led Dara Happa out of this darkest period of its history.

The Dara Happans came to the inevitable conclusion that they had been too mild towards the Storm rebels.

Isn't there a Dara Happan hare/rabbit god who is a trickster? Never heard of a sanctioned cult for it, though, but then that doesn't mean much. 

Then there is of course Tunoral of Vanch, the raccoon thief good, effectively a trickster. But Vanch is outside Dara Happa.

I know there's VenegDel the Burning Hare in Pelanda.  I could believe Lodrili in the Dara Happa countryside who live down to all the negative stereotypes about the Lodrili worship it / propitiate it.

But yeah, Dara Happa as a culture is much more "anti-ruckus" than the Orlanthi in their worldview.  For the Orlanthi, there's a place for tricksters, just as violence is always an option.  The DH, however, would be obsessed with a toxic rhetoric of purity (if I may put it in modern terms) that would just look silly to most 3rd Age Heortlings.
