Skoli figs

You say "tamed"...I say "controlled".

 

immunity to venom and willingness to slide a painful blade between the chitin plates is probably about the best you can get with scorpion riding. I just can't imagine them being "tamed".

 

"Awww, he's cute! J'sset, can me & T'met pet 'im? Please?

It was the Skoli who taught the Orcs of the Monglash Steppes how to ride (taming is indeed too strong a word) the Giant Scorpions; no mean feat, given their general disposition and opinion on creatures perching atop them. During the Skoli Empire, the orcs were occasionally used as shock troops - but were never afforded respect in the eyes of the Skoli. The Orcs never forgave the Skoli for their mistreatment, but were never in a position to do anything about it.

they have an unbelievable sweet tooth. Living in the desert regions llike they do sugar and sweets are such a rarity that entire raiding campaigns have been started over a good bee hive.

Ah, but I am an inveterate liar; as all writers must be.

 

Nevertheless, being that it is the holidays, I am in a giving mood.

 

Ask me whatever you wish; and perchance I might answer.

 

But here's a hint: this writing monkey doesn't give out stats. So don't bother asking.

Okay, RR...here's a question:

 

what do you see intra-skoli gender relationships being like?

 

Are monarchs of each gender accorded the same respect? power? roles?

 

do monarchs or each (or more than 2?) genders appear w/ equal regularity or is one more likely to appear than others?

 

How does gender relate to power, rank, and role in priesthoods?

 

in the military?

 

in the skilled trades? (weaponsmith? tanner? horse/skorpion master?)

 

in the arts? (useful or merely cultural - from glass-blowing, weaving, & detail carpentry to dancing & mural painting)

 

that might keep ya busy for a while!

and more on religion. You gave us info on the one deity, but are there others? And to further ask on CD's questions, are they a monarchy or a theocracy?

Do they value magic over brawn? Or do they see a purpose for both and treat both equally?
