Society Name: Ban Horroth
It had been debated for many years in the courts of the Ban Horroth. Should it be made so the race leave the rocky citadel to explore the outside world or should they remain, silent, brooding, lusting for existance. Ten years had the motion been debated, sometimes peacefully sometimes with blood. The three castes got together in the eleventh year of this debate for another discusion concerning the iminant future. THis year was different, an upcoming member of the religious caste stepped forward announcing news from the gods themselves. He claimed to have had divine message and gave a three day long speech. By the end of the speech it was clear what must be done, the king sent out ten of the most talented, strong and intelligent of the race. He sent them out to the points of one of the ban horroths religious symbols (the Ped'nar) the scouts went on their way spreading out into the open world. Their mission was to discover civilisations and to investigate as many different aspects of the cultures they find. The King told them to come back with information on religion, trade and the military. They were give a year to find out as much as they could then to return. All that they must do was to be done quietly and silently without the new cultures seeing them.
