The Lampi
The Lampi Peoples

Beyond the Border peaks, to the north and east, stretches the frozen plains. While not continuously frozen the thaw and following bloom during the short summer brings life to the area. This mostly unexplored region is home to the Lampi peoples who during the summers bring their herds of caribou north so they can graze on the plain's bounty. By winter the Lampi peoples and their flocks are in their winter camps in the forests to the south.

The Lampi peoples are mixed, if one looks closely one can find blood from most sentient races mixed in. Most have blood from orc, elves of the snow and frost varieties and human. It is a hospitable people to those that show honour and respect, the harsh lands they dwell in demand it. This hospitality is also why their blood is so mixed. The Lampi is a highly spiritual people, while they don't ask the spirits for permission they do placate them. This world is their domain, not the spirits.

The Lampi have no central organisation, no rulers nor even any clans or tribes. Instead they

Incidents

Session 36-4

At a crossroad

With Anton's and Zarrah's nightmares becoming worse you yound yourself at a crossroad, go back and try and undo the spell upon them. Or let the boy guide you to Spotted Tail's herd where their shamans may know a thing or two. You made your decision and a couple of later smelled, herd and saw the hundreds upon hundreds of caribou in the herd.

Session 37-1

Insights into nightmare

Arriving at the Lampi herd you were escorted to a small sitting area while the Lampi curiously followed your walk through their camp. Once at the sitting area you were given some hearty food and were told someone would come and meet with you soon. As you finished your meal an elder Lampi arrived and you exchanged pleasantries, the tale of Greyhoof (of which he and Spotted Tail was aware of and concerned about) and about your nightmares. The elder told you that it was most likely the work of hags, one of which keeps cockatrices and basilisks as pets. Some of the Lampi had been affected by them in the past and they had either gone insane due to the lack of sleep or the hags had grown tired of them and the nightmares stopped that way. Knowing someone was the cause of the spell you cunningly waited until the nightmares came and then dispelled the spell. By all accounts it worked. When Zarrah was dispelling Anton's nightmare she took her time and learned as much as possible about the spell. It's workings she found was primal, primitive and was powered by blood. Upon the realization of them being powered by blood she connected a few dots and realized the hidden workings of the spells in the Eternal Legion's Journal was as well. But much more refined. And that she possibly could replicate it.

Session 37-2

A day with the Lampi

With your night sleep back, and needing a bit of rest in general, you decided to spend some time with the Lampi while getting your energies back. You participated in their daily life and that evening noticed something was happening. The Lampi had gathered. Moving cautiously Zarrah found her way to the gathering where she got to observe a Lampi funeral. The old elder had died and was placed upon a pyre. Behind it the most magnificent caribou Zarrah had ever seen stood. During the funeral the elder's regalia was passed on two the successor, like the regalia chose who. having seen enough Zarrah went back to the tent.

Session 37-3

Future of Spotted Tail

Later that evening the somewhat inebriated new Speaker of the Caribou, VerĂ¡, barged into your tent and started questioning you about all you knew about about the wolfs and Rivfader. Her tone changed quickly though becoming almost afraid. The short conversation ended with her asking what she should do in almost a surrendered tone. After getting her answers she left you and returned to the herd and the night. Next morning you woke up with the herd having packed up, moving away to new pastures. On a distant hill you again saw Spotted Tail and felt a refreshing wave of energy flow over you as it bid you farewell.
