Chief Gordangar
Player = Phil

Summary
Gordangar Kenstrelsson is middle-aged, generous, and traditional.

He has been Chief since 1602 except during the years 1612-3 when the Righteous Wind faction led the clan to disaster in Starbrow's Rebellion. Gordangar has not forgotten that lesson.

Thandren Longface

Player = Mark

Summary
Thandren Longface is the Speaker for the Carls, one of the leaders of the Hindelssons bloodline and a solid and cautious, though greedy farmer.

Korlmhy Orlgardsson

Player = Eric

Summary
Korlmhy, son of Orlgard the Lawspeaker, is the most vocal priest of Orlanth and is the main voice amongst the Old Way Traditionalists. He is widely known to walk the fields and speak to thane, carl, or cottar. But Orlgard's son is nothing like his wise father. Whatever position Savan Thunderer (the Chief Priest and Gordangar's brother) takes, Korlmhy is likely to oppose. He believes the clan must reenact the ancient quests to strengthen Orlanth. He thinks the Chief is weak, catering to Kangharl and the Lunars. He encourages the young thanes to think of raids and quests and bold deeds. He is likely to lead the split of the Vasmaring bloodline.

Resource = Magic 9W

Leader Abilities = Steward of the Lightning Band
Traditionalist 11W
Voice of Orlanth 6W
Hate Lunars 3W
Rune: Storm 4W

Ring Votes = 1 (Orlgard)

Current Faction Goals:
d10-1 Sacrifice to Learn More Mysteries of the Gods
d10-2 Restore Orane (Send Emissary to Gain Knowledge to find Orane)
d10-3 Send a Mission to the Grazelands to find the Argrath

Korlmhy's Private Goals:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
d10-1 Replace his Father on the Ring OR Replace Savan as Chief Priest
d10-2 Ally Another Faction to his cause
d10-3 Keep Orlanth Strong!
