The Sor’inyt Tribe

Mysterious as the sands that they travel, the Sor’inyt Tribe is sometimes an enigma to the outside world. Being both nomadic and matriarchal, this human desert tribe of the continent of Aerullin has learned, often through hard experience, how to survive where most would not.

It is also a closed society, and therefore knowledge of the Sor’inyt is hazy and vague at best. For example: though they have been documented to travel the lands between the Plain of Col’Paehjaar and the Plain of the Dead on a seasonal basis, sometimes they have been known to break the pattern by visiting the Plain of Esaechorodd during a particularly hot spell of normally warm Aerullin weather.


PEOPLE
The Sor’inyt tribe consists strictly of women. It is hereditary based; “joining” of the tribe is not allowed. If one wished to join, the woman must have provable family ties to the tribe. They are very tight-knit and closed to the outside world- strangers are not welcomed lightly.

PHYSICAL APPEARANCE:
As testament to their harsh living environment, all women have skin that is tanned a dark bronze from many hours in the unforgiving sun. Both hair color and eye color vary, though brown hair is a common sight. Hair is typically braided and styled atop the head, often decorated with gold strands and/or ornaments. Height among the tribe also varies, but an average height for the human female fighters is around 1.85 Peds. A few elevated members of the tribe have dark symbols (“Wani’toia”) tattooed on their faces and/or bodies, often representing a special achievement or blessing. Because of these markings, many outsiders often find these though women to be exotic or fearsome- sometimes they are considered to be both.

CLOTHING:
Normal Wear:
“Sper’itua” (Warrior/Traveler): Hardened leather pants and sleeveless cloth tops covered by leather chest-guards are favored garments among the members who travel. Various other leather guards are frequently worn, such as forearm protectors and hardened kneepads. Toughened boots are also an important element to the riders’ wardrobe.
“Tor’iti” (Non-Warriors): Those members who do not travel prefer loose skirts and sleeveless tops, made from a soft tribal-woven cloth, to the hot leather garments of the riders. Gone are the leather protectors- replaced with decorative gold arm cuffs and necklaces. Light, but strong, sandals replace the heavier boots.
Festival Wear:
The Sor’inytia adorn themselves on days of celebration in loose flowing skirts/shirts or dresses of bright colors (green, red, yellow, and/or purple). These outfits are often made from one or two long pieces of cloth, which are then wrapped around the torso and held in place at the waist with a length of gold cord. Gold jewelry is used liberally on days of festival. The members of the tribe that wear the tattoos (or “Wani’toia”) are known to darken the designs with a mixture made from roots and spices. The light sandal of the Tor’iti is worn by all during festival occasions.

OCCUPATIONS
Women:
There are two main occupations of tribe, under which are several “sub-jobs”:

The “Sper’itua” (Warrior/Traveler): These members of the Sor’inyt travel the eastern lands of Aerllin. This group is divided into four categories: Loopa, Rash’ida, Cani’tpa, and Wo’di’on.

The “Loopa” (Hunter): this group of the travelers traps and hunts the several varieties of small game in the desert; such as desert mice, lizards, and sand ferrets- which are then used for food.
The “Rash’ida” (Gatherer): this group of the travelers gathers the roots, stem, and leaves of the plant they call “Totit”.
The “Cani’tpa” (Protectors): this group of the travelers is the main body of the Sper’itua. They are the members of the tribe that are the most experienced in fighting. They protect the Loopa and the Rash’ida while touring the lands.
The “Wo’di’on” (Leader): this title belongs to a single woman who in charge of leading the Sper’itua. She is responsible for both the lives of her women and plotting their course of travel.

The “Tor’iti” (Non-Warriors): These members of the Sor’inyt stay in the small moveable settlement (the “Opi’t”). This group is divided into six categories: Gret’upi, Kad’iyt, Maast, Fod’itia, Cani’tpa’eta, and Do’wi’on.

The “Gret’upi” (Nurturer): this group in the Tor’iti cares for the young children. Children do not go on the travels, and therefore must be left in someone’s care. Often the Gret’upi are old or baren women.
The “Kad’iyt” (Preparer): the group of Tor’iti that prepare the totit. They also dye the cloth after it has been woven.
The “Maast” (Weaver): the group that weaves the totit into cloth.
The Fod’itia (Baker): the group that bakes the cop’a and makes the frodip. They also are in charge of preparing various other foods such as game or small birds.
The “Cani’tpa’eta” (Camp Protector): the group of Sper’itua that remains with the settlement. These Cani’tpa of the camp protect the vulnerable elders and children. They often serve as the first teachers of the adolescent children.
The “Do’wi’on” (Camp Leader): the title given to a single woman who is in charge of the Tor’iti. She is responsible for both the lives of all who reside at the camp and the trade of goods.

Men:
Men are not included in the everyday life of the Sor’inytia. Little is known about them, but the women of the Sor’inyt tribe must be fertilized somehow. These facts are largely unknown to the world outside the tribe. When women do give birth to male children, the infant is killed and the mother is demoted in status.

WEAPONS:
Though they prefer light weapons, the members of the Sor’inyt tribe are versed in several different categories of arms:
Bows: common weapon preferred among the Cani’tpa and the Cani’tpa’eta. Unlike most northern bows of wood, the Sor’inyt bows are made from bone. Often they are decorated with gold.
Javelin, Spear, and Pike: Another popular set of weapons among the defenders. Made from either bone or wood. Often carven with designs and inlaid with gold.
Saber, Scimitar, and Short Swords: used only by elite warriors, as they require closer contact to your enemy. Many warriors can use double blades.

SEX, PREGNANCY, AND BIRTH CONTROL:
There are many rumors concerning the fertilization of the Sor’inyt tribe members. For instance: the peoples of the Hot Winds Bay believe that the Sor’inyt women have both male and female sexual organs- and thus reproduce with each other. The peoples north of the Dunes of Thiva, who have a lower opinion of the tribe, believe that the women, coming so close to The Etherial Void in the wanderings, breed with demons. Other rumors speak of the tribe raiding small villages and enslaving the captured men. None of theses rumors are true. Despite these sometimes fantastical and imaginative ideas, the answer to the riddle of Sor’inyt procreation is something that few outside the tribe know and is actually quite simple: the women of the Sper’itua will periodically stop at towns, villages, and cities where they spend a night with men of that place. Because they do it both for pleasure and procreation- the stops do not always end in pregnancy. Only members of the Sper’itua are allowed to mate.

During the pregnancy and also after the birth, both mother and daughter are expected to remain with the Tor’iti until the child is weaned and the Sper’itua return once more to the settlement. After which, the mother would return once more to her old position and the child would remain in the Opi’t to be raised by a Gret’upi.

The Sor’inyt women have a method of “birth control” that they use to raise the chances of bearing a girl-child. The plant Hemor is used in this case. The Sor’inyt incorporate the plant into a few of their more important food substances: such as Cop’a, Frodip, and dried meats. Because of this large amount of Hemor-tainted food, the women are ensured a daily consumption of the drug/plant. The plant is digested and introduced within the blood stream through the natural ways. Once in the blood stream the plant then accumulates in the outer lining of the woman’s womb. When a successful conception occurs, the drug reacts to the male genes. Since all being are initially female, the plant simply blocks the element that would allow for a male child. This process does not always work, since nothing is proven perfect. Nineteen times out of twenty the plant works effectively, but every so often the plant proves faulty and a boy-child is born. Though this happens rarely, once a generation, when it does happen, the child is immediately killed. Twins, in accordance to legend of The Twins, are also killed at birth. But the birth of twins is even more rare then that of boys.

TRAINING:
Once a child becomes a woman at the onset of her moon-cycle, she is allowed to choose her profession in the tribe. She will then be trained accordingly. Despite set professions within the tribe, all girls are trained to handle weapons, if only simply, in case of an emergency. Girls can choose from any of the careers the tribe offers- her mother’s status does not brighten or tarnish the child’s status/reputation. There is a mandatory three-year minimum for training in a profession. After the three years studying under the appropriate Tor’iti member, the girl is then “apprenticed” and “inducted” into her chosen career. She will then be a novice for an average of three years and thus will not be allowed to do certain things. For Example: if the girl was apprenticed into the Sper’itua, she will not be allowed to mate until after her novice title is lifted by the Wo’di’on.

After several years in a position in the Sper’itua, a woman can choose to retire her position and take up one with the Tor’iti.


HOUSING:
Tents and yurts make up the majority of the housing of the Sor’inyt tribe. Most of the traveling by the Sor’inytia is done by horseback. This allows them to carry their collapsible yurts and tents behind them.

POPULATION:
The numbers of the Sor’inyt tribe lay around three and a half score. With an average birth and death rate for their size, the tribe usually sports an equal number of both per year (On average, the tribe experiences 2 births and 2 deaths every year.)

FOOD/DIET:
The members of both the Sper’itua and the Tor’iti have the same diet, which consists of: Small desert game, water, spiced wine, and flat bread made from the stem of totit (Cop’a). Other desert plants such as cacti and small fruit bearing bushes (Dog’nata) complete their diet.  


GOVERNMENT
The Sor’inyt tribe is ruled by a spilt republic. The members of each the Sper’itua and the Tor’iti cast votes for their respective Wo’di’on and Do’wi’on. The leaders have little actual contact with each other, but yet need the other to survive; thus not allowing for a split of the tribe.

Tribal hierarchy is based on the fertility of the woman. She is considered blessed and elite if she bears only girl-children. If she were to bear a male child or twins (both of which must be killed immediately after birth), she would then be demoted in status.

While there are very little matters that concern both leaders of the Sor’inyt, they must form a union in the case of a violation of the “G’aio”. The G’aio is a set of laws that must be obeyed. They are very few and are reinforced all the more because of their little numbers. The penalty for breaking the G’aio is banishment or, worse, death.

The G’aio:
* A member of the Sor’inyt must never take the life of another member, former member, or child of a member [exception of male offspring].
* A member of the Sor’inyt must never break a blood oath. A blood oath is made between two members of the tribe for various reasons. After swearing this oath they must slice each other’s forearm and draw blood in a form of binding of the oath. Thus resulting in the name- blood oath.
* A member of the Sor’inyt must never take money for a man’s pleasure. She may do it for her own pleasure and his, but she can never accept money [or equivalent thereof] for her actions.
* A member of the Sor’inyt must never bring a man into the tribe’s sleeping grounds.

LEAVING THE TRIBE:
There are two ways of leaving the tribe: choice or banishment.

Her Choice: A woman in the Sor’inyt tribe has many choices available to her. Among those is that to leave the tribe is she so wished. The reason for her leaving does not matter, but the woman must call an audience with both the Wo’di’on and Do’wi’on. She then must state her wish publicly. She is then granted her leave. But, she is formally reminded that if she were to leave, she would never be allowed back into the tribe nor would she be allowed to associate with other members of the tribe. She then has one day to remove herself from the tribe. Though this does not happen often, if it does it most likely is because the woman has fallen in love with a man and wishes to live with him. Her daughters, if they so wished, would be allowed into the tribe without question.
Banishment: If a woman breaks one of the G’iao, most often the punishment is banishment. She must leave the tribe immediately. The day’s notice that is common in the case of a choice to leave is not granted. The woman must leave then without farewells to her comrades or provisions. She is only allowed to take that which she has on her body and her horse.

SETTLEMENTS/TRAVEL:
There is one settlement known to the Sor’inyt: the movable Opi’t. The Opi’t consists of collapsible yurts and tents, which can be easily and quickly dismantled and moved when needed. The Opi’t is generally moved once in a season, four times a year. It is always centered around a water source.

Travel is essential to the tribe because of the magnitude of importance the totit plays in their lives. The plant, not yet cultivated for civilized farming, only matures twice a year and does not grow in close proximity to itself. Because of the amount needed for the Yuatu’way, the tribe is forced to travel to gather enough of the plant. Travel is also important to the Opi’t. The tribe moves the Opit for fear of eliminating their current water source. The tribe travels the lands between the Plain of Col’Paehjaar and the Plain of the Dead on a seasonal basis; sometimes they have been known to break the pattern by visiting the Plain of Esaechorodd during a particularly hot spell of normally warm southern weather.

TRADE
The Sor’inyt are involved intensely in trade with the major cities of eastern Aerullin. They trade cloth that is woven by them from the root of the totit. A very fine, smooth, and soft cloth, the cloth (Yuatu’way) is extremely sought after, especially by the noblemen of the northern Kingdom, Santharia. They often trade for spices, jewelry, or horses. Once a year, four members of the Sper’itua travel with a cartload of Yuatu’way to Shan'Zarathan and the annual horse fair. There, they trade the cloth for two Azhorhrian horses.


NATURAL RESOURCES
The Sor’inyt gather the plant totit from the harsh desert. They utilize every part of the plant: the root, the stem, the leaves, and the blossom.
The root: the root is first dried in the hot sun for three days until all the moisture has evaporated. Then the root is stripped and peeled into thin strips. The strips are then soaked in a spice/water mixture until pulpy. It is then mashed, strained, and carded. It is then left to dry for another three days, after which is soaked and carded again. After the second carding, it is then spun into thin thread. Then it is woven into sheets of soft cloth (Yuatu’way). Though originally a pale cream color, it is frequently dyed green, yellow, red, and purple for both trade and celebration attire.
The stem: dried in the sun and then ground into a fine powder. Power is then blended with spiced water and cooked, resulting in a flat bread (Cop’a).
The leaves: dried and ground into powder. Then is used with spiced water to dye the yuatu’way green.
The blossom: dried and ground into fine powder. When combined with oil, it creates a potent disinfectant lotion.

Another plant that provides essential nutrients is the Dog’nata. The tribe collects the small brown fruit, which are then used in several different ways:
Rotora: name given to the fruit fresh from the bush. Can be eaten uncooked- but the many seeds present problems. The fruit is also naturally bitter.
Topa: the fruit is dried and sliced into thin pieces. Useful for long journeys.
Frodip: the fruit is mashed and strained into a jelly substance. When combined with a sweet spice is used for spread on the Cop’a.

Hemor is yet another important plant to the Sor’inyt. The roots of the plant are ground into a fine powder and then mixed with Cop’a and Frodip. The powder is also used to cure meats.  

The tribe also collects the desert Strip Grass, which they then weave into storage baskets. These baskets are then used to hold various items; such as: cop’a, cloth, arrowheads, un-woven totit, etc…


RELIGION
Ironically, the Sor’inytia worship the sun god, Foiros. They consider him to all above others, and thus honor him. One girl in every generation is chosen to be the Foret’tuum (Foiros’ Bride). She is then automatically a member of the Tor’iti. While, she officially does not have power- the leaders often seek after her advice. When she reaches the age of 50 summers, she will choose her apprentice from the children. When she dies the apprentice will take over.

FESTIVALS
There are two major festivals in the tribe:
Foretium: the funeral festival of the elder Foret’tum’s death and the celebration of the coronation of the new Foret’tum.
Wani’toiat: the celebration of the applying of the Wani’toia to a warrior.

A smaller and slightly lesser event, the Gorda’ta is the celebration of “new women” –or girls who have had their first moon-cycle. Every girl who has experienced her first cycle during the time of the Sper’itua’s absence is welcomed into womanhood during this festival. This event is held exactly three nights after the Sper’itua’s return to the Opi’t.

HISTORY
While their history is largely unknown the Sor’inyt call upon a large series of oral stories of their early years as a tribe. The tales are passed from one Foret’tuum to her apprentice- and thus to generation to generation.

MISC:
Difference between “Sor’inyt” and “Sor’inytian”—

Sor’inyt refers to the individual or personal associations with the tribe. It is used when one wishes to convey the “human” aspect. For example: you can say “the Sor’inyt warrior” but not “the Sor’inyt settlement.”
Common uses: “the Sor’inyt,” “the Sor’inyt warrior,” “she is Sor’inyt.”

Sor’inytian refers to the object in association with the tribe, For example: you can say “A Sor’inytian spear” but not “a Sor’inytian woman” [which would almost be repetitive since there are ONLY women in the Sor’inyt tribe].
Common uses: “a Sor’inytian bow,” “a Sor’inytian nature,” “Sor’inytian cloth.”

Great detail!  However.....


Could you add a few more plants and vegetables to their diet, so that you don't have a tribe of toothless Amazons?

:)   ;)

Think we do have a few desert plants already in existence, otherwise feel free to make up a couple of tubers, cacti, and the like which have the requisite vitamins for your Sor'inyt!

Yeah, like it as well. However, I have a few questions:

- Is there a particular reason or some sort of myth why the tribe is so centered on females?

- Also would like to know at least some rumours from where they get their (few) men - do they treat them like slaves e.g.? Is there a ritual for reproduction and they later on kill the men or something in this direction? I guess this topic isn't covered properly so far.

- Foiros. Well, Foiros is a Santharian God, so it isn't clear if this could would be worship on Aeruillin as well, though it sounds logical that the sun god is worshipped in this desert region. However, Foiros is male as well (yup, "ironically" as you say - but why's that so?), which doesn't sound too probable for a tribe where males aren't treated like they should (I should organize a protest somewhere down there... *grin*)...

- Moving. Is there a special reason why they are moving? And how large is this tribe? Are there no regular settlements?

Rest is very fine, Anaea. Very well written and structured. Just how I like it to make integration easier for me.

"...which doesn't sound too probable for a tribe where males aren't treated like they should..."
How SHOULD males be treated oh kindly leader?  

:D     ;)

as to the other things- good pionts- i'll think about them and get back to you with an update in a day or two..

i have a vague idead that they migrated from santharia [taking old religion with them] a long time ago- but farther then that... well lets say its "hazy and vague at best" :)

Uh... I might have missed something, but...
You say that if a woman bears a male son the infant is killed.

Then where do they get their men? Raids can only go for so long before the raided start defending themselves.

who said they raid for their men? ;)

i do know where they get their men- hmm... to tell or not to tell? oh- why ever not!

they simply stop in a city/settlement for a day or two [or night or two]. what man would pass up the chance for sex if he  knew he'd definitely" get some"?
or at least i tend think they'd be willing. ;)

comments? questions? concerns? like i said earlier- give me a couple of days to write up the missing info that art pionted out. then most [but not all] will be revealed in this matter...

Hmm... I am sorry, somehow I missed this thread until now. The tribe is somewhat similar to the Sophronian tribe in the beginining. Perhaps maybe you should read it. Also I suggest that when you have your updated entry to keep it here in this thread. Just edit your first post. Try to keep your entry as close as possible to the guide given. I will reread your post when you have done your rewrite and try and help you as much as possible as I can.

I like the tribe very much so keep on working on it. And hopefully it will turn out to be a great entry that Art will like and approve.

Well, in general a historical table is necessary for tribes in order to see from the first glance where they originated  and how they developed etc., e.g. which wars they fought, what catastrophies happened, what kind of rulers did what and so on. At your tribe this maybe different, cause you're describing a tribe of nomads far out in the desert, so there probably are no existing records about them. So I'd say in this case it is not necessary to have a timeline, though it would be fine to have one of course (at tribes of the Sarvonian mainland this is essential cause we have to plan with all the relations between the tribes). But perhaps you can add a timeline for your tribe in the course of time when you develop them further.
