El Grande Carrascal and Badlands

by Marco Dalmonte English translation by Gary Davies

Karaash - Humanoids, war, conquest, strength, tactics
Wogar - War and military tactics, conquest, ferocity, predators
Yamag (Terra) - Balance of the life cycle, birth, prosperity and fertility, earth
Tabak (Ixion) - Sun, fire, light, knowledge, order
1. The humanoid tribes of El Grande Carrascal (principally gnolls and goblins) give homage to the above Immortal ancestors Yamag and Tabak, especially to the lords of war Karaash and Wogar, who inspired the goblinoid society according to the hard rule of life in which the strongest prevail and command the rest of the tribe. No true and proper temples were created to worship these Immortals, but usually the conciliatory ceremony they carried out around a site considered holy by ancestral tradition, linked to the peculiarity of each Immortal: a cemetery or a place of death for Karaash and Wogar, a particularly fertile site (like a pond or stream) for Yamag, and a high place (the top of a hill or of a cliff) for Tabak.
2. The Long Legs tribe is particularly devoted to Karaash, while the goblins of the Black Bellies and the Flat Noses that inhabit the Badlands to the west are unwavering supporters of Wogar. The remaining gnolls (Chiriquis and Dead Yuccas) favour the worship of Yamag who of the Immortals is the most bellicose.
3. Some tribes of mountain rakasta live in the area of El Grande Carrascal and nearby Terra Vermelha, contest with the goblinoids the domination of the higher fertile areas. Even though in inferior numbers to the goblinoid tribes, these powerful rakasta have never been crushed or driven from their hunting territories, and fight with tooth and claw in order to resist invasions both by the goblinoids and humans, in a state of constant belligerence. These rakasta all follow the cult of Ninfangle, protector of the tribes and Immortal of battle and courage, even if they have never built a temple or a sacred place dedicated to him and are in large part nomads.
