If going on a cattle raid is the defining exciting tale of young Sartarite men, what is the defining exciting tale of young Sartarite women? By young men I mean young Orlanth cultists (including Vingans). By young women I mean young Ernaldan cultists (including Nandani).
So something along the following lines: Sent on a quest by your Rune Master (e.g. to collect healing herbs in the wilderness, to obtain rare minerals or metals, to bring a message to another temple, etc.) that turns out to be expectedly fraught with dangers, temptations, and excitement.
This is for an expanded optional Family Background table. Roll D20 or choose. This entry would be something like:
Take a temporary lover (perhaps during a religious ceremony), give birth to a child, and are accepted as a full adult woman of the Ernalda cult. The child may be raised by the temple, by your clan or family, or by yourself. NOTE: if you do not want this as a background event, please reroll or choose another event.
I could see the classic Sartarite female Bildungsroman (and counterweight to the young men doing something stupid like deciding to steal valuable property from a neighbouring village) could well be to take a temporary lover, have a child, be acclaimed as a full member of the Ernalda cult (as that automatically makes you eligible for becoming a priestess in the cult), with option of the child being raised by the temple and within the clan. Which in game has the advantage of getting that all done and over with before your character becomes an adventurer (and thus letting any further character development along those lines be unnecessary OR something to do within the course of the game).But am curious people’s reaction to that. Again, this is not intended to represent the actual universal experience, but rather the classic Bildungsroman.
Just as I do not think most Sartarite young men go on a cattle raid that has something go terribly wrong, with death or feuds as a consequence. But it happens in all the stories!
Ernalda is a popular cult (at least with my players), but her cultists are usually doing social things, summoning earth elementals to smash things, casting Heal Body, or twisting menfolk around their fingers. The earth elemental is a big thing. That and the Charisma spell.
