Society Name: Morvali
Action 1-2: Reconvert the Morvali People to the Old Ways (2 of 3 years)
Many of the Seeresses of the Shanari have been killed, paving the way
for the shamans of the old religion to re-assert their influence on the
lives and politics of the Morvali people. The shamans still sit in the High
Council of Corryn, and the ruling-matriarchs have remained true to the
goddess Jaikosa, but much of the Morvali population worships the Shanari
god Sin-Alb, threatening the hegemony of the Wandering Shamans. The
Wandering Shamans have decided to undertake a massive re-conversion attempt by
syncretizing the Shanari and Morvali faiths. The Wandering Shamans have
declared Sin-Alb, to be the son-consort of Jaikosa, and will direct his worship.

Action 3+4: Five Year Agricultural Plan (1 of 5)
The High Council has decided that in order to increase development in
the region of the city of Corryn, new lands will be converted to
agriculture. As the rudimentary attempt last year was largely a failure, the High
Council has decided to make a more concerted effort to improve the production of
the lands north of Corryn. Workers will once again be conscripted from the
neighboring clans, but workers loyal to the ruling matriarchs will also
be brought in to advance the cause. In addition, fertility magicians from
the Wandering Shamans will also help.
Primary Determinant: Influence of High Council (+2)
