Five Hills and Five Tribes : A Tale of Ten Falling Stars
Spirits of the Lake
Those Whom Dwell Beneath
Unknowable Spirits of Water that dwell within the Lake and the source rivers that feed it. Alien in form and beauty and greedy in their need for appeasement from the Five Tribes.
Of all the spirits of the Valley they are the most likely to take action against the Tribes people.
The Elders Village maintains a shrine specifically to them and makes daily offerings and prayers (as well as the great festivals which honour them).
The test to become a holy man/woman of the tribe involves invoking the Water Spirits secret names and bargaining with them for greater knowledge of spellcraft and magic. Even the Ghao do not know these names, and only on the death bed of an Elder is the name ever passed to one of their students.
