    So how did Tada defeat Tripanandar? I have some character’s who are trying to stop Leaping Bears hunting their clan’s Bison, and I thought re-enacting the myth would be an option. Always good to have other folks input….

    I fear I’ve never come across Tripanandar. What’s the source?

    Anaxials roster page 82.

    I fear that is the only place Tripananadar appears (not in Nomad Gods, not even in Greg’s notes about the ecology of Prax). So I’d say Tada defeated Tripananadar by being Tada, the Champion of Genert Garden. Until Chaos showed up, he was pretty darned good at doing that.

    I doubt that’s actually a story of Tada. No one really knows anything about Tada now, and what is known mostly comes from the Basmoli. It’s an probably a tale of a first age Khan, who took part in the Basmoli’s Battle Ritual:

    Quote:
    Waha allowed himself to be captured by the Basmoli to take part in their Battle ritual. He successfully identified Tada’s spear from the twelve, and slew Basmol as Tada did. As is the Basmoli’s custom, he was released and given the title of Tada, Murderer of Children. Any khan who has completed this task may take the title Tada instead of Khan. (from the current Praxian playtest, subject to change)

    Another alternative is that it was a Waha Khan taking part in Foundchild’s Great Hunt in Sacred Time. I’d even say it was the same khan. So he was on foot, unarmoured, with his most trusted hunting weapons.

    Excellent, thank you. When’s the Prax book, roughly, meant to come out? Next year or so?
