Capability and culture
|Military organization||Ka'Shari didn't really developed an organized army. Instead, we can
spot individuals which bear traditional position on each ship. Inheriting prestigious
titles from their original culture, these Protectors could be compared to knights. Their
mission is to train warriors to organize defense in front of menace. Leading small units
of seasoned warriors, they can gather to form larger units when on land but they are
dispatched on the ships most of the time.
Several Protectors and their entourage could be found on larger ships more dedicated to military missions or where leaders live.
Outside this elite, warfare is a matter that means for everybody. Even women or teenagers are trained to fight with long daggers or sabers. Pirates or slavers that tried to attack Ka'Shari small fleets or lone ships learned Ka'Shari valor.
Depending on circumstances, Ka'Shari fleets could be reorganized around warships where volunteer forces are commanded by Protectors.
|Economic system||Ka'Shari are not individualistic, and their economy is not based on possession. Goods
and resources are gathered and managed by the group. Depending on needs, the community
decides to dispatch food or goods to families during weekly councils. Barter is common
between ships or fleets and is an occasion to gather for cheer festivals.
Ka'Shari are not ignorant of currency. They met many cultures and traded with some. A quaiyoran trader could very surprised to discover that Ka'Shari deal with strange currencies, or obsolete, even forgotten ones.
