Okay, this is the one I can REALLY get into. Feel free to nab some runners-up for quit quotes, because I'm about to go overboard.
Charali on Tubori:
"I've never met a Tubori that wasn't crazy. But any who are sane wouldn't step foot on one of those boats."
"A somewhat forlorn huntress in camp used to warn against falling in love with a Tubori. She said the ocean is no place for a Charlian, and that you can not stop a Tubori from sailing off. Beware the Tubori fever."
"Be alert and never travel alone when a group of Tubori have been seen. Half of them are slavers who'll ship you off to Farin. And that is if you are lucky. There is no where to run if they take you to their island."
"The Tubori are the only outsiders who know enough to give women proper respect, but they still do not know enough to keep their men under control."
"The Tubori may know how to fight, but they are worse than children when they boast of the size of their hunts. No, I do not consider 'stabbing fish' hunting, and no one would believe there are really fish that large."
Charali on Vavardi:
"Murderers and thieves. We will drive them from the plains one day, when we can band together for longer than a horse race without fighting amongst ourselves."
"Impudent invaders who know nothing but greed. They wear their character on the outside, so they are easy to assess: the more pretentious their clothing, the more worthless a person they are."
"Witless, spoiled children. Trade with one will almost never be fair. Be careful not to be cheated, and instead cheat them whenever possible."
"Vavardi are never to be trusted, and always to be watched. If you yield an inch to them, they will take a mile."
"They are children not worth the time to insult."
Charali on Vandagans:
"A more practical people than some outsiders, and do not encroach where they do not belong. They can be valuable trade partners. I hear certain other tribes sell their extra males to the Vostocki for much coin, but we would never do such."
"The Vandagans are fair in their trades, and their furs and blades are of excellent quality. They do not bother us."
"A hardy people. I would not stay in those lands through a winter, but they seem not to mind the cold."
"I do not usually trust outsiders, but I would sooner barter with a Vandagan than most others. They drive a hard bargain, but their goods speak for themselves."
"They may be the only notable hunters outside of the plains. Their cold, harsh lands beget cold, harsh game. I'd not like to meet one of their bears outside of a circus."
Charali on Lithmorrans:
"Murderers and thieves little or no better than the Vavardi, but generally too distant to give much thought to."
"We have not forgotten their atrocities in the thirty-days war, but we are the ones they call savages. The only others with such twisted thinking are the tainted ones."
"Lithmorrans who are openly hostile are more honest than the ones who try to make friends with you. There is no telling what the latter wants, and it rarely ends well."
"They are not Vavardi, but they are not much better. They are perhaps worse in some ways, as they never speak their minds, and take insult at the oddest things."
"The Lithmorrans are difficult, but trading with them is still better than with the Vavardi. Few others will bring the gold that they can for our horses, and they won't turn around and try to sell you to the Farin."
Charali on Hillfolk:
"I hear they are simple folk. I've seen their ponies and they are not much to speak of."
"They're perhaps the only ones Lithmorrans value less than us. They would be good allies, but I don't think I would trust their food. I've heard they'll eat babies."
"They're some of the few reasonable folk in the kingdom. Hard to understand what they're saying, but disputes with them are settled not unlike among our people."
"I would never bet on a Tarnland pony in a race, but it is something to see one climb. The Hillfolk deserve more credit than they are usually given."
"I've heard tales of a hillbeast, but I don't think they really exist."
Charali on Farin
"Few outsiders are as dangerous as the Farin. But they are easy to see coming."
"Those who boast the loudest of honor always have the least."
"Few are as cruel as the Farin. Death is preferable to capture by the dishonorable wretches."
"They are fierce warriors. It is good when their attention is correctly on the Daravi."
"The Farin always say what they mean. And they rarely mean well."
Charali on Daravi
"A people lead by corrupted ones. Little good to say of them, other than they keep the Farin occupied."
"If any can be more cruel than the Farin, it is the Daravi. Do not allow yourself to be captured by them; death is no escape."
"The goods they offer in trade are interesting. But it is troubling to think of what they might do with what they are bartered for."
"It is good that the Lithmorrans have another to hate."
"Daravi are not to be trusted any more than any other outsider."
Charali on Charali
"Your tribe always comes first. Remember this."
"The other tribes are selfish, and only look out for themselves. Why would we help them? We have our own to look after."
"In strange lands, even if of other tribes, those of the blood can worthy of trust. In the plains, trust in your tribe."
"We as a people could do great things if we banded together. If only the other tribes would follow our lead."
"You can trust any Charalin not to murder or capture you while you sleep."
Charali on Brotherhood
"One does what one needs to to live. Taking back from those who hoard what they do not deserve is not dishonorable."
"A band rooted in deceit, but still more honest than some. Be careful in your dealings with them. "
"They say there is honor among thieves. But I would still sleep with one eye open around them."
"They are more honest than reeves. They're not so pretentious as to say it is justice when they rob you blind."
"Their brotherhood is a poor substitute for a tribe, but it can be one if there is no where else to turn."
Charali on Order
"Listening to their foolishness is a fair price for what their missionaries can provide. It can be helpful to allow them in your camp."
"Be careful of what you say around them, and pretend you follow their ways, lest the red robes come and steel men come."
"They can be good when they are correctly focused on the tainted ones, and not those who do not worship their particular spirit of the water."
"The brazenness of their metal-clad dogs is proof enough of their avarice. What they are denied, they will attempt to take by force."
"Remember who Dav was and what he did to us, and know that is who Davites look up to. That is all which needs to be said about them."
Charali on Merchants
"Strange are some of the things they are interested in, but when they bring steel blades for trade for them, I will not mock them for it."
"For enough salt, or a fine steed, you can buy from them everything that you will never need."
"Most are greedy children who would sell their own mothers for wealth. Remember this when you deal with them."
"Do not tell them more than they should know. A good trade can give yours an edge on other tribes, so long as they do not turn around and trade with the other tribes."
"They can provide many things. It is beneficial to keep good relations with them."
Charali on Troubadours
"They can be nosier than missionaries, but they tell more interesting stories and don't ask as much in return."
"Welcoming a bard to your fire is seldom a bad decision if you wish to hear of far-away places. The trouble is getting them to stop talking."
"They are good at talking. They can speak for hours and still not answer your question."
"Many of their ways are not unlike ours. But they can get huffy if you tell them such."
"They find themselves pretty important for supposed funny folk."
Charali on Reeves
"The reeves seek "justice", but not yours. It is better to see to your own than waste your time speaking to them."
"The dogs of spoiled children, sent to enforce ill-defined 'laws' that benefit few but themselves."
"You can count on the reeves- to throw you on the gallows when finding the real culprit is too difficult for them."
"One may as well thieve when one is already treated as one."
"Fanatics of 'justice' who are too blind to see the real criminals are themselves."
Charali on Physicians
"Their cures are strange and unusual, but when you cannot see a medicine woman, they are the next best thing."
"I do not entirely trust them, but sometimes there is little choice but face their torture."
"Where there is sickness, doctors soon follow. If it is not the other way around."
"They sew wounds well. I would think twice about swallowing most of their concoctions, however."
"They spout much nonsense. But I think they mean well."
Charali on Council
"They are a council of fools. They argue amongst themselves more than govern."
"They do not care about each other's problems, let alone ours."
"The only thing worse than a self-important fool is a group of them."
"Speaking to their council is often the only way to settle things. If they will listen."
"With so few of their elders participating, can it really be called a council?"
