Shirker

Given the extreme value that Muvari cultures places on the importance of having and rearing children, it is a cultural taboo to choose not to have children when one is capable of siring them. The term given one who refuses to become a parent is ‘shirker’ and it is considered a dire insult to be called this.

Leap That Precipice When We Come To It

Leap That Precipice When We Come To It 600x463.jpg

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.

Sisepha was a Muvari priest who captured a Galbran scout. All his methods of interrogation failed until Sisepha put him in the bell towers. The Galbran scout found the pealing bells so cacophonous and horrible that he gave up information about an impending Galbran attack, which the Muvari were able to thwart because of the specifics which Sisepha was able to extract.
