Caught Between Worlds
Clans are an important part of life on Terra. They are not dependent on biological ties, though there are clans that are composed of just family members. Rather they function more like social groups or corporations. Clan memebership is never taken lightly and often a point of pride, indicating a level of skill, dedication, or success. Most Clans run have a singular focus for their operations. Clans run the gammet from mercenary companies, crime syndicates, and militias, to less combat oriented merchant companies, social organizations, or religious groups connected to a Power.There are two basic types of Clans:
- Air Clans are Clans which have a social organization, but no other bonds. These are more numerous, appear and break apart quicker, and have to use certain work around to manage day to day business.
- Stone Clans are Clans which are founded around an ancient magical artifact, a Clannacht, or Clan Stone. This gives the members a much deeper bond and ties them into a network of ancient orgin which is focused on minimizing conflict while increasing opportunity.
