Primary

Orientation Posture: Knowlegde/Thought
Orientation Aspects: Conviction, Tradition

The Saraan religion holds that study of the Creator's creation is the true path to knowing the Creator. In the Dreamlands the Saraa were scholars of great renown and travelled far and wide in pursuit of knowledge. The Saraan way of life revolved around scholarly exploration, and had so for uncounted millenia. Their abrupt arrival in Qaiyore has disrupted their fervent pursuit of knowledge, but only temporarily.

Secondary

Orientation Posture: Survival
Orientation Aspects: Revolution, Prevention

The Saraa arrived from the Dreamlands ill equipped to survive. They knew little or nothing of even the most basic technologies. Faced with imminent demise, the Saraan quickly adopted the tools and knowledge of neighboring desert tribes in the Shadowlands. The great journey across Qaiyore and subsequent settlement in the Shadowlands has completely revolutionized the Saraan way of life, forcing scholars and priests to become farmers, potter, carpenter, etc.
