To return this to a gloranthan context, I should expand on Andrew R.'s description of the watchwere as a caricature of Paul Keating. It is very earthy in speech and spends a lot of the time abusing people. It hangs around pig farms which it refers to as the 'arse-end of the planet'
Simon Bray mentions the Torabs of Fonrit. From what wastepaper material that I could uncover while in Seattle, I had the distinct impression that the Torabs are only to be found in Golden Kareeshtu (save in Katele) which has a more liberal tradition of slavery (this is blamed on the 'amoral' God Learners) and that Afadjanni society is more segregated along racial lines.
