Marriage rituals


Soccercalle

Recommended Posts

One of my PCs (an Orlanthi god-talker) will marry an NPC (an Ernaldans assistans priestess). I am thinking about "playing out" the ceremony with some action. I role-played the wooing (based on the myth about Orlanth wooing Ernalda).

But I wonder if I can find information about Heortling wedding ceromonies anywhere.

Here's a common Orlanth-Ernalda marriage rite - 
 

Ernaldan priestess bride stands above a kneeling Orlanthi groom. Both are painted with woad. She with green, he with blue. She has placed her one foot on his shoulder and she is sheathing a scabbard on his sword. They are standing inside a circle which inner layer is made of flowers and outer from swords. People around them are dancing and throwing flowers and grain.

If you don't mind reading through a few pages of my Orlmarth campaign play-by-post game, you can see what I did for the Marriage of the Harvest Queen and the Barley King (a somewhat more elaborate Orlanthi marriage ceremony, but you may find ideas to draw from).

The marriage ceremony starts with the 2nd-to-last post on this page: [IC] HeroQuest Glorantha - The Colymar Campaign 2 - Orlmarth Clan - part 3 | RPGGeek
