Hobranx Pile

This refers to a pile of hobranx feces, and the hobranx does leave behind prodigious piles of dung. This phrase is often used to refer to an assertion of dubious truth or sometimes to a product of poor quality. The picture above depicts a Galbran warrior standing near a pile of hobranx dung in order to illustrate the common size of a hobranx pile.

Architecture of Ledgrim

Architecture of Ledgrim 600x575.jpg

In the early days of Ledgrim’s history when the Muvari Tribe took refuge in the great cavern system, they discovered off the edge of The Rift, every home and establishment was built to be defensible.

This practice continues to this day, though—largely because the outer defenses of the city have become more effective—the defensive architecture has in some cases become so lax it is merely ornamental.

Likewise, the practice of each clan always, night and day, posting a guard has become somewhat obsolete and is practiced only by a handful of clans.

Though an outsider, Garvey Dire saw wisdom in the old tradition of posting a guard and has continued this practice for the safety of his family. Though the wives of the clan are always armed or have a weapon within easy reach, generally it is only the guard at the front portal who wears armor.

 

Leap That Precipice When We Come To It

Once, a Muvari named Troi Deen was with a reconnaissance party in the rocky wastes to the north of Ledgrim and was caught in an ambush. All her party was slain, but she escaped by leaping three separate precipices as the Galbran chased her. Many of the Galbrans attempted the same leaps but fell to their doom. These chasms are now called the ‘Three Precipices’ and the story of Troi Deen is told often to commemorate her fantastic escape. Also used as a term to mean jump to conclusions.
