Actions in Game Year 1417

Society Name: Morvali

Action 1-2: Reconvert the Morvali People to the Old Ways (1 of 3 years)

The Seeresses of the Shanari have been killed, paving the way for the shamans of the old religion to re-assert heir 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.
