If they were walled cities, did the Pendali move in and take over existing centers and peoples? Did the Pendali wear metal armor in battle and use civilized weapons and tactics? Did they have access to sorcery or theistic magic? What was their main source of strength in war?

I've always figured that they were a folk of lion hsunchen origin, who ended up becoming sedentary and eventually civilized. (Poor Basmol, even his worshippers who aren't defeated, abandon him.)

I think they're more likely theistic (henotheist probably), but don't remember details. I'd make them as civilized in technology as necessary to be a threat.
