Outland Barbarians

Outland Barbarians

The Kaa peoples, mostly known as the Outland Barbarians, inhabit The Northern Wastes. Unlike the civilization that lives beneath the wastes, the Barbarians eke out a meager existence on the surface (the "outland", according to most of the subterranean inhabitants).

The Kaa are organized in clans, each with a different celestial as their patron. Clans marry within, but the Kaa people do have rather daunting rites of passage, which tend to lead their children to different clans as they are tested by almost every celestial, until one eventually chooses to sponsor them. Perhaps due to the potential for inbreeding, it is considered unlucky to have been chosen by the same celestial that chose their parents. To a few children every generation, a brand new celestial chooses them. This is an interesting omen, as it falls to that single individual (known as the gwyrdan) to bring the great spirit more followers. Many (such as my grandmother, Winmahay) leave The Northern Wastes to make their name. Not many return, but those that do can make their names as a Budaan or clan-founder.

As their existence is a difficult one, some tribes have been known to raid certain settlements of the Great River Conclave, as well as caravans traveling the Sunken Circuit.
