Tribal Centers of Dragon Pass

Internet Source Links are temporary and unsettled, here is links according to current WWW condition. Of course many unofficial. (2004 / March)

I think Somewhat there is contradiction about the existence of seminomadic / decentralised heortling have their own need (or usefulness) of their tribal center, for it fixes and mends the seat for specific clans that is near of the city [For example, Jonstown has completely on Aranwyth territory, though Malani founded it.]  Aside from the fact Sartar made his cities for unifying feuding clans and tribes by making cities on its borders (but he certainly failed about Duck Point and Colymar) , for their flexible and practical way [unprincipled? or irresponsible from the point of view of centralised Sun Dome Templars / Dara Happans] might prevent these centers as one of functionary points of whole Principality.

I think many elected (by political compromise, thus weak) heortling kings want to rule tribes from their own clan base, not distant Tribal Seat. It might indicate the level of centralisation of each tribes....for example, in Dragon Pass: LoT, Cinsina and Locaem doesn't have specific centers while Malani and Colymar have their own, even if not in Yelmalion Tyrannos Rule [Harvar of Vantaros in Aldachur, Count Lukus of Vaantar]. But this might be too technical analysis and it might simply indicate lack of concerns of authors, like about Balkoth along and around the Jaldon's Grave..... Maybe some sartari see Hauberk Jon permitted to put on his Jonstown distant Cinsina Land with quite astonishment for the eccentricity among Malani......

Order of Tribe Names is according to Sartar Rising 1: Barbarian Adventures, place names and names of current kings are from Dragon Pass: Land of Thunder.

Ask David Dunham about its clannish names and structutes and its tribe (For it seems that Grazers have only one Tribe, "Pure Horse Tribe" along with their Solar Centralised Tradition), two leaders [Feathered Horse Queen and Luminous Stallion King], why Sky Bows are hungry? why Yanastan River Laughter and Sora Goodseller are his favorite characters?
