A group of humble, free-spirited people consisting of travelers, vagabonds and farmers. They are ones to adjust to their surroundings, but have tendency to move around from place to place.
They do not have a true identity to one of the human subraces (i.e Highlander or Heartlander) due to them moving around so much they have accumulated many kinds of people, however throughout the years of being on Atlas, they have stayed close together with their fellow clansfolk.
The Chief is without a doubt the highest respected position in the clan. They are responsible for inducting new clansfolk, keeping the Clansgarde’s morale high and to maintain the peace within the clan and outside of the clan.
The Clansgarde are the loose militia formed by the chief to help protect the Clansfolk. It is a highly respected to position to serve in the Clansgarde.
Those without a special position (farmer, merchant, hunter) or do not serve in the Clansgarde are simply known as Clansfolk.
Hartgarde’s live by a simple code of values. Those who cannot follow this simple code will be cast out of the clan with judgement made by their peers and Chief.
Family: Respect your fellow Clansfolk as if they were your family.
Fidelity: Remain true to the faith and respect those of different faiths.
Humility: Stay true to living a humble lifestyle.
Pride: Take pride in being a Hartgarde, do not let anyone make you question your own being.
Sadly Hartgarde’s are not excellent artists, but they do however write their history down with excellent stories of their travels, people they have interacted with and with. They may not be good illustrative artists but with their words can fill many paintings.
Hartgarde’s love to celebrate good hunts, harvests, new Clansfolk and marriages.
Hunt Festivals: Usually when a great beast is slain or many animals are brought back from a hunt it is common to present them to the Chief/Chieftess and then feast on the largest animal killed.
Harvest Festivals: When GOD blesses Hartgarde farmers with a great harvest, they are to be turned into great foods and desserts! Once they are prepared and brought out all Clansfolk from youngest to eldest pick out their desserts to feast on.
New Clansfolk Ceremonies: Whenever there is a new Clansfolk entering the clan or one is born into it, it is always a time for celebration! All the Clansfolk including the Chief are present to welcome a new member to the clan with open arms.
Marriages: When a Clansman is married it is customary to invite the Chief, his/her family and all the Clansfolk nearby. All invitees are to bring presents to the wedding and hand them to the betrothed after they have completed their ceremony.
Common but with varying accents.
Hartgarde’s are typically Canonists, but they accept Clansfolk of other human religions and beliefs. The Chief of the clan cannot enforce his/her beliefs on Clansfolk of other religious beliefs. All Clansfolk are to live in harmony with one another.
