They are Sorcerer things. Your people and ancestors hate sorcery. I can think of a lotof things that the curse could be. And frankly, your clan is probably not sophisticated enough magically to play mage-detective. Best trade them away for something useful.

In Dwarf valley... But in the endgame, the dwarf problem will present itself.

Its dangerous but not unworkable.

Nope. But his prophecy comes true with apalling frequency.

Possibly. But then, they ARE your tribal allies. Have you been giving gifts and generosity? It helps that indebtted feeling.

Yes. (grin) I assume its 4. With Eurmal, I take NO chances.

I disagree.... the default choice, is, I find, often the best one.

That information is found readily when you go and try to recruit more... check with your clan ring.

Not sure I like this.... remember, they will, when intercepting you BE EXPECTING you. That is probably going to be a bad, bloody thing.

Never had that problem in all the games I've played.

No, its not. And they WILL come back, someday. Be prepared to do whatever they ask!

Scrolling give me an exploring feel to the game, and not a 4x turbo kill everything feel.

There are details if you scroll down. And in tribal societies, there really was no information, just what was provided by the (usually lying) plaintiffs. The sagas are full of tales like this...

You have to decide yoruself, usually for political reasons -- that is what everyone else is doing.. Of course, consulting with your ring at this point is usually wise.
