I still say Maran Gor should have Sheep Sacrificed In Her Terrible Name. But I'm persnickity.

Half your clan SHOULD be Children. Well, certainly 1/3 - 1/2 I find that my clan stabilizes at about 1:1 Child:Farmer ratio

Spend Magic on Children when they say 'Children born this year will have Great Destinies' That usually generates one or two.

Also, spending points on Heroism helps generate heroes -- though I can't quite work out the mechanism. I seem to stabalize in the 20-something range for nobles when I sacrifice 1-2 points per year (if you are low on nobles, the rest of the ring will start begging for you to sacrifice for Heroes) Don't forget to sacrifice to a deity during the course of the year too... Just to influence who the new noble might choose.
