The All Father’s Bosom

This phrase is formally used in Muvari funerary rites, expressing the desire that the deceased’s soul return to their Heavenly Father, or the One True God.

Typically, the Muvari consign their dead to the lava pits beneath Caladrex in elaborate funerary rites. It is expected that upon the second coming of the All Father’s Son that the lava pits will turn cold and the dead will be resurrected from their fiery slumber.

 

Kranuvi’s Thin Piece

The Kranuvi Tribe is infamous for its shrewd trading practices–some of which involve having scales that are weighted falsely and shaving coins for their precious metal. In fact, the Kranuvi Tribe minted a coin specially meant for trading with other tribes. This coin was thinner and contained less precious metal.

This gave rise to the saying “Kranuvi’s  thin piece” which came to indicate any bargain in which one party felt he was being given short shrift, an unfair bargain, or outright cheated.
