Dilemma #22 - The Hunt

An annual tradition in the city is the hunt, marking the migration of ruminant herds across the northern edge of the snowplains. Some districts undertake this as a pragmatic and dangerous hunting expedition, others regard it as a more ceremonial event where the district leader shows that they trust their fellow hunters and are unafraid to face death.

How do the Districts honour the hunt?

Survival - Less mouths to feed, AND more food!

I smear sacrificial blood on my face in the symbols of the dread Oseele as the drums echo off the walls of the shattered skyscrapers at the edge of the snowplain. Today I cement my rule in the Ceremony of the Hunt.

I honor the tradition of the Ceremony. We need the trust of the people to keep our society together.
