Silent Strider Lore 1

  • You have been taught the meaning of the traditional taking of an ancient Egyptian name to honor the ancestors and the taboos involved.
  • You have been taught the basic history that survives of the tribe, and also have been told the days before the curse and the forced diaspora are not well recorded.
  • You know the basics of the tribal curse in egypt.
  • The Dark Umbra is neither a place to visit lightly, nor a place to be ignored.
  • If you are Metis, you experience ceaseless attention from ghosts and their ilk, and if you are not Metis you know the hard burden the mules of the tribe face.
  • A lot of the tribe takes jobs as messengers, couriers and travel all over the world to do so, and it can be dangerous.
  • At times, you will find yourself instinctively warned of danger or to be cautious, and all Striders learn to heed these warnings.
  • The tribe has ties to the Romani, mostly as kin, but do not make it well known.
  • The existence of various Camps isn’t a secret, yet they are not discussed freely outside of tribal gatherings or meetings. (Low approval camps are known to you.)
  • The Dousing of the Red Star cost the tribe a Legend- who is now the vessel of Meros, the Celestine, known among humans as Pluto. The tribe has very few Elders left.
  • A significant event took place of great importance to the tribe in 2011- but they prefer not to discuss it casually, especially not with outsiders.
  • The main Camps of the Striders are the Dispossessed, the Seekers, and the Harbingers; and the Wayfarers and the Swords of Night are the combat Camps. The rumors of others persist, but no one will as yet explain them to you. (High Approval Camps are now known to you.)

  • But you have been taught the prophecy of the Theurge Nephthys.
  • The tribe has made itself strong with ties to the Fera in Africa, and elsewhere.
  • The tribe attempted to retake the homeland of Khem and break the Curse in 2011- and failed. Why it failed is often argued upon- the survivors disagree and many who may know the truth did not survive.

  • You have a general knowledge of the Dark umbra and how it relates to the tribe.
  • You may have now met, or heard of, members of the tribe who deal directly with ghosts and the Underworld, and a Camp that is known to quietly recruit. You can never find them if you look directly- it is said if you are suitable, they will find you.
  • The location of the Wheel of Ptah- in Morocco, has been shared with you- as well as a firm warning not to risk its safety by spreading information about it or visiting carelessly.
