>Bravo to David Millians' Aggarite headhunters! Tell me more about your setting!

        After talking with a number of people in Victoria, I shall be sharing some of the campaign info that I've developed. But I'm sure everyone knows what happens when one comes back to game materials for a new look. Everything needs a bit of buff and polish, and elements have changed as we've played.

        Sure, there's plenty out there, but Orlanthi just seem to be so good at homebrewing much of their own trouble above and beyond what the world throws at them.

        In my Aggar, the (primarily) women's cults of Orinalda and Agga Gor maintained many traditions, and the latter is probably one of the primary origins of headhunting anyway.

        More to come.
