1: Banners. I already have design ideas in my head for them. My question is whether or not the three big clans should have banners.
On the one hand, their not militaristic, a flag does not hold much point if you got no enemies to wave it at. Besides that, a banner usually lets people know what lands their in. the clans tend to like staying in their own lands, and not tread on eachother's toes. everyone is aware of the unspoken boundaries. and its pretty clear when your in new lands. long creek is warmer with taller grass, feather peaks got dirt floor with occasional small scrubs and of course trees up the yingyang., and you know your in chalk mound lands when you start stubbing your ties on the occasional rock, and have to wrap up to keep out the worst of the cold.
Now on the other hand a banner would be useful in other ways. when trading caravans set out to other lands people would look for the banners to know where the group comes from and therefore what they are likely to be trading.
in the event that clans get together for games[such as their wrestling competitions and various ball games, all done in light hearted fun and to more or less remind the clans that there are other fey around them, what with there being huge gaps between the actual settlements] it would be useful to know who your playing against, since there is a certain uniformity to the events. It can get confusing when everyone is dressed more or less the same.
2: gummie foods.
While eating on a bag of gummy worms I looked up what theyr made of. Eating gelatinous bone-meal isn't all that bad in my opinion but the sitte that was telling it was one of those vegan sites and painting it out as a horror of horror's, Which just goes to show that lack of meat in ones diet has delitarious affects on ones mental state of being. Personally. I find that the more you eat of an animal the less of them you have to kill. Take sheep's head for example. I mean, Do you think it goes bouncing off thinking"Well at least they didn't get this bit of me" ? The Eskimo's have defiantly got the right idea here. Use as much as humanly possible and make it last. Same with jelly.
Anyway I kind of went off on a tangent here. My point is that a gummy snack would be easily made and I was thinking that the fey might have them, but I wanted to make it one clan that makes the stuff.
Which clan should make gummy treats?
I already decided to set in a few gods. I did a picture depicting a champion called Carvel who is pretty much doomed to be the gods favorite champion, and I did a sort of religious concept for the fey, and how the fey came to be.
What I want to ask here is if the gods should play more interactive rolls as they have in the description of carvel, and the new historical concept of the fey, or if I should tone it down a bit and back up on the gods a little, and give them a less 'In your face' placement in the fey world?
