Praxian Tribes and their clans


Recommended Posts

We might want to start with the published clan chiefs - Narmeed Whirlvishbane of the Singing Flower Bison clan comes to mind here. I'll admit that I am at best a transient in Prax, so I'll let people with actual experience of the place take over.

In my Prax games the players always name their clans. I also always ask them to name their Khan, Queen and Shaman. I also get them to do the seasonal migration route of their clan across the wastelands, along with their Paps visiting frequency (in years). This is in the clan making section.

Copper Bison Clan - Bison (In my game - The clan that enslaved Argrath)

Spirit Rock Clan - Morokanth (In my game - Egajia Chewer of Flesh's Clan)

High Horns Clan - Sables (In my game - Inire the Red's clan)

You may notice a theme above. In order to connect the players into the story, their clan should have a key figure as part of it.) This is not the case for mixed tribe groups in cross-tribal bands like Orlanth, Yelmalio, Storm Bull, White Bull, etc.

I'll look up their leaders when I get home.
