I imagine the Kosok as being competition for the Kedashi in the skies above the Naralon Forests.
With the 'Wild' Kosok preying on the Kedashi, I just don't think the Kedashi would want to tame any of them for their own use.

The Kedashi would probably just find another (possibly smaller) bird of prey to use against the Kosoks.
(This is of course, a blatant hint for Mike to scuplt a new avian.  Grin)

Also, whilst I would have thought it possible for any of the races to train a young Kosok, I like the idea that the Devanu are the only race big enough and strong enough to keep them under control when they are fully grown.

That's a good point!
I've not been planning to add the kosok to the kedashi forces, but I'm sure some swarms will have put them to use. For the most part they are probably a nuisance to the kedashi, preying on the frenu and young trebarnii, but I'd happily endorse them as an unofficial option for the list, especially if you create a trebarnii character to look after them...
What do you think though, should they be an official option, like with the kelahn? Or is it cheating to nab too many devanu creatures?

I was reading some of the rules (as you do...) and had a question.

In the Chronicles of Anyaral, the entry about the Kosok (p54) says 'The predatory kosok soar over most parts of Anyaral, from the garish eru kosok of the Naralon Forests to the dorah kosok of the Argoran Wastes...

Twilight Traveller 6 states: 'The Trebarnii know the fearsome beasts of the forests and how best to deter them from their homes...' The rest of that entry on the Kelahn mentions how the Trebarnii utilise these beasts to their advantage to fight their enemies.

Putting these two things together, does that mean that the Trebarnii could use Kosoks? These new Kosoks would have to be painted in a 'garish' colour scheme, but would they be an acceptable addition to a Kedashi force?

 If I was a Fubarnii I suspect I'd paint some comical message on my roof... Roll Eyes

More answers to a random selection of questions...
Enar is one of the two moons. There are lights on the surface that the fubarnii believe to be cities.
The Enarii (gods) are ancient fubarnii who earned their place on enar. They believe that by burning their dead some part of them may get carried to enar where (if they are deemed worthy) the enarii will recreate them and they can live there.
Plenty of engineers (and other fubarnii) think this is nonsense, and within most of the empire this is an acceptable belief. Priests are held in a similar regard to engineers - respected, but often left to their own devices. Both engineers and priests study the lights on the moon, but there is no consensus whether they are natural or divine.
Some fubarnii paint symbols on their proves so the gods might read them - it's only fair to assume that they have divine telescopes with which to view such writings. The fubarnii don't really expect the enarii to do anything, but it's always good to let the gods know you are thinking about them, just in case that makes a difference.

We are in the early process of planning Twilight Day 2017 and it looks like we might have settled on a date... it's not certain yet, but it'll probably be on Sunday 25th June.
Who might be around? Have I clashed with any big events that might mess up plans (aside from Eid... sorry Simon!)?

Tater has answered this perfectly!
You can be as creative as you like with the swarms, but the most flexible approach is to make up the swarms on small bases and just put them on medium bases when they grow.
I haven't done rules for large swarms just yet... medium swarms are scary enough! (Although I learned that they are real liability when playing against Paul's massed slingers...)

what's this talk about large swarms?   Grin

What I did with mine was carefully remove one frenu from the swarm so my two small swarms have three frenu on.  The medium swarm is mounted on a 40mm base and has the two extra frenu added so has six and looks a bit more "swarmy"

Irish christian hermits used to pack a small one man boat and sail off to wherever their god took them, perhaps some Fubarnii engineers did the same with airships.

I'd struggle with the Devanu having the same complex social structure that the Fubarnii have, I imagine their empire would have been far less cohesive due to their natural predatory instincts so they are, to my mind, far less likely to have gone searching for something new...unless if it was more a case of outcasts being driven into new lands.

Perhaps the Devanu gods passed their knowledge onto them about the larger Bakahn. Maybe they paint their myths on rocks like the aborigines of Australia. I kinda like the idea of some Devanu sneaking into the remains of a tower or some hidden cave to pass on the knowledge. Assuming that Arak isn't just boasting then maybe he is more of a prince, thus has greater access to ancient knowledge, than a just a simple brawler...well at least for Devanu.

What are the ultimate aims of the Enari? If they are gods then I supose its to lift up the fubarnii and unite them (for whatever reason) but if they're not gods then what? I suppose that as mortals then presumably they need to breed for what species would ultimately put other before their own. Are they trying to form a beachhead before more Enari arrive from over the mountains? Maybe they are searching for something lost in Anyaral?


I might have a bash at speculating...

Maybe the Enari once lived in the Delgon lands when the climate was more ameanable. They fought a great war with the Devanu and were driven into the mountains. Then as the world grew colder so to did the Enari. Escaped Fubarnii fled north to live a chilly but Devanu-free life in the north. Then the great rebellion came and whatnot. Now, with the devanu gone the Enari have returned south but used the native myths to elevate themselves...and seek vengeance on the Devanu.

I like the idea of other races on other continents but given the level of tech we've seen so far and the general lack of interest in the high seas I don't think there has been much of an exchange so far...apart from hermit-engineers and the floating islands maybe...perhaps the Enari were left behind while their fellows floated off.
