Thanks again everyone, especially Donald and Jeff; lots more food for thought for me (and some ideas for my intrepid band of Lunar cultural engineers...).

Makes a lot of sense given the proclivities of their advisor, and the clans role as a barbarian allies to the Army.

It's going to show my inexperience with the matter, but I hadn't even heard of Estal Donge until very recently. I think I can come up with some reason why it didn't work (and perhaps a way to make something like it work...). That or we'll see about an "anti-Kallyr".

What a lack of foresight! It must be all these Solar jerks in charge of the occupation that are responsible! ;)
