The Book of Kendring
“Tell me about my clan”
The Kendring are an Orlanthi hill clan occupying the land just to the north of the Quivin mountains.
Runes: Air, Movement
Thunder Brother: Betimagor Uzbane
Values: Shrewd, Cautious, Courageous
Clan Motto: “Violence is Always an Option”
The clan is highly cohesive with a strong leadership, as befits a people beset on all sides by enemies. There are few Lunar converts or sympathizers, and those Lunars who live in the clan have little influence.
The clan’s warband is powerful, with clever thanes skilled in the art of ruse and ambush. However, there are few peacemakers and diplomats to balance the thanes. The clan has earned itself many enemies from generations of raids and border struggles.
The clan’s magics and wealth are modest but not insubstantial.
The clan boasts these abilities:
Makes Nice Household Utensils
Makes Bone Artifacts
Know Dragonewt Greeting
Player characters derive these abilities from their clan during character generation:
Fine Workmanship (Craftsmen only) +5
Goose Dance +5
Close Combat Weapon +5
Ranged Combat +10 (one shot; only when appropriate)
Domestic Chores (Steadwomen only) + 4
Wyter (The Clan Spirit)
Valenstor the Gale 18
Valenstor is the hero who defended the clan from the Five Dark Sisters, who could hide in your shadow and kill with a whisper. He raised a scouring wind that blew them into the light, where they could be slain. By many great magics he was bound as your clan guardian. Now he manifests as a green standard, a pennant some fifty feet long that billows and curls even when there is no wind. He speaks as a snapping wind in the faces of his people.
