It all comes down to just HOW incredibly conservative the Brithini are. More so than any RW culture, for sure. But are they unbelievably conservative, or unbelievably and stupidly conservative?
I can believe, for example, that Brithini would continue drawing water from the same water source without ever checking the next valley to see if there was a better water source, as long was water supplies were adequate. But I don't think that they would ignore changes that do occur - I don't think the Talar would continue to order the water carrier to gather water from the well for centuries if he was aware that a river had sprung up in the way. The response might be unbelievably conservative, though. Order several years of magical tests on the new water source, allow a small group to test drinking it for some years, etc.
But its a YMMV thing - the Brithini are certainly more conservative than any human culture, its just a question of just how much by.
