David Scott Posted October 16, 2016 Report Share Posted October 16, 2016 (edited) Having looked at what blowpipes are made of and their use. I'd suggest that Praxian blowpipes are made of a cane similar to River Cane found in the USA. It likely occurs in the Zola Fel valley around the bogs and certainly in a few oases. I don't think it's as widespread as its Earthly counterpart. It's likely more popular as a foodstuff and craft material. The ostrich clan likely have a large stand of this - a canebreak in their ancestral grazing, but unlikely on the scale found in America. As for use - hunting birds, small critters and spirits. Looks like clay pellets (clay from the Zola Fel) are aimed at the creature's eyes! Darts can also be made. I'm not sure the Praxians use poison darts, however if they do there's likely some kind of fermented lizard ichor that does the trick. The likely candidate for poisonous lizard ichor is something resembling a beaded lizard. All of this is likely Foundchild and Waha hunter's stuff, not mainstream nomad. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arundinaria https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blowgun https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cane https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaded_lizard Edited October 16, 2016 by David Scott added poison source 2 Quote ----- Search the Glorantha Resource Site: https://wellofdaliath.chaosium.com.
