A place to centralize links to these things.

The North

North of the Wall there exists a land of nomadic tribesmen. The language spoken there is Torghut. We have met The Happy Tribe and The Bloodspear Tribe. Most other clans and tribes we've encountered did not share their names.

The South

The East

We know of a land to the east largely because of Coyote, who came from there. He has mentioned other spirits in that land, including Raven, Thunderbird, and lots of Bears.

Kiri shows up and apologizes for the extreme delay. Apparently, Renyu was supposed to deliver this a while ago, but he's tied up with the Sea Lord at the moment, so she's been asked by Whale to deliver it for them.

The long lost coyote briefing from Whale:

Coyote is a trickster spirit. Very much like Monkey. He's got a fair amount of punishing the vain and serious, but also much more identity confusion. He's often impersonating others, or getting others to impersonate each other, etc. Monkey tends towards a more physical comedy, Coyote is much more situational.

He's here in the Empire because he's temporarily in hiding from his own lands and realms. Whale doesn't really understand the details, but apparently Raven and Thunderbird are having a bit of a row between them, and it's Coyote's fault. The Blue Stone Bear is searching him out, and if he finds him, will drag Coyote back before the others and put the whole matter to bed. So, he's laying low.

But, he bores easily, so he's having fun in the Empire while things boil over at home. Monkey is using him, Fox is chastising him, Spider hasn't seen him, and Butterfly betrayed him. From Whale's point of view, he fits in well with all of them...

The West

  • The Light: A faction from the West, who have "infiltrated" the Empire. They seem to be focused around Chaos/Freedom and have had schticks involving the breaking of rules. They have names that are weird and difficult to pronounce, and make unusual word choices when speaking, using synonyms to change the connotations of things.

We know of some conflict on board the Unconstrained, and a mutiny.

As usual, Ambassador Serafina of the Island and Prelate Gomez were wrangling at the time of the disaster. Once more, the Ambassador was expressing the futility of worshipping dead gods, while the prelate was expressing distaste at the ambassador's attitude towards men. The argument was cut short when Crane attacked.

  • The Dark: A faction from the from "the western desert beyond the strait", of whom we have met only one representative (that we know of). They appear to be focused around Law/Order and Sima seems to have schticks about enforcing laws.
