Superstitions / Cultural Practices (Allanak)
« on: August 15, 2017, 06:09:57 PM »
Having come across the superstition about the color green hidden away in Allanak Fashions, I was curious if there are other superstitions / cultural beliefs that Allanaki citizens in particular would hold.  I'm happy to hear about undocumented ones (i.e., not in the docs, but evidenced by player lore, or evidenced by NPC/item descriptions/room descriptions) too.

Of course we do have Superstitions help file, which lists off things like:

o Odd number of feathers is good luck; even is bad luck.

AMong others.

Walking by a dead elf brings good luck and security to your belongings.

There's an ancient cult of gicks who live in the Allanak sewers and worship a sentient sewer horror that has survived since the defiling of the world. They call it "He Who Sleeps Below" and await the time when all three moons during the exact moment dusk turns to late at night.

When you pass a sewer pipe, make the two fingered sign of the tentacle lest you be devoured when the Great Rising occurs.

Many of my hunter PCs in Allanak have always considered it general bad luck to find more than one dead animal that hasn't been scavenged or skinned in one outing. If something is out there killing indiscriminately, they often will head back and wait a day for it to satiate itself.

I play froofy social aides/concubines now.

There's actually about the same number of unexplained bodies...

I find it extremely bad form to kill someone and not leave at least some faint clue as to why and how they died. The random body crumpled on the ground at the corpse pile just freaking annoys me.

'Arrange' is a command, people! Use it!
