Many published Clans consist of a few separate villages or Steads; but it is the Clan that seems to be the key for much of the worship, politics, wealth, raids, decision making etc.
To what extent is the daily life centred on the Stead vs the Clan? How much daily interaction would there be between Steads? On Orlanth's holy day do all the clan members travel the few miles to the clan's Orlanth temple (leaving the Stead unguarded)? How would a clan raid be arranged? How would defence against a raid be coordinated? Would it be a Stead party or a Clan party who took sheep to the summer pastures? Etc etc.
I've not found any published work that goes into this level of detail, have I missed something?
Any thoughts would be gratefully received.
