M’adukar of Shaintar

Partially influenced by reading the World book and actually building a Black Lantern in the past, M'adukar. A hybrid that relatable to real like species stand out differently altogether. Sulur-neh or trueness of blood in regards to Fae was mostly absent, even lacking the features of a human as well. The strays of society, facing rejection on both fronts. As demostrated they mostly branched out by Kor, becoming a radically new race altogether by turning into Korindians. Culturally we see spliters where Malak's ideals thanks to the notions of society dubbed mal'alakar from the Elven Nations. There birth a kingdom in itself. Its difficult to be completely dismissive of the matter of where M'adukar would belong. They suffer that fae weakness, meaning they retain some level of their DNA as well as their strengths. Outsider is distinguishing as most possess some natural beauty, though in this scenario are not held by the standards of their island cousins.  I would speclate they intergrate into more accepting societies vs say one mainly of Fae or Human thanks to the stingma of the past.

 

On creation notes I see patterns of the human with the free edge and skill at D6. However after removing the traits which forges the Martial using Fae, we are left with a peculiar form. I ponder as thus far it has yet to be addressed if a non Korindian simply forgoes its racial edges which is very likely. However within some regard they shouldn't be punished by being given none. Ironically could argue they deserve a combination of Alakar and human edges. I am nonetheless curious on a discussion upon this.

What do you mean and what are you asking?

(Also, while the world book does contain the roots and basis for what Shaintar is, it doesn't hold as law completely because the material is being re-created in the form of the published Shaintar works, partly because it needs to be updated.  So if you are asking about something that has been published the published material always takes precedence.)

It's not really difficult to get my drift but I shall  elaborate so it's clearer.  Basically racial background wise where would theey be classified  as by definition one would not label  them koribdian.  Would they forgo the capability of possessing no racial edges simply because the Madukar is not following after Kor ?  If not game wise what would they have access to?  This tackles into territory  more book wise and barely anything is mentioned past the origins of them prior tto becoming Koridians.

I suspect maybe the Elven Nation or Korindian guidebooks in the future will address this concern, yet there  is no certainity In this.  Likely no one but SPF has a better answer..nonetheless it seem worth mentioning. Outside of mechanics what do people think about those " half elves" that do not embrace the ways of Kor and feel like an outsider with both parents shunning them for lacking their traits?

I think we are getting into the territory of

Racial/Physical make up vs Racial/Culture, where edges are concerned.  And what are you giving up if you are a M'adkuar vs a Korindian (physically the same in genetics but cultureally different).

In this scenario it is more than anything in Shaintar barring guidebook edges for cultures like Malakar or Serenity where racially they possess nothing. Every instance their edges involve the Law of Kor. I comprehend this but if wanting to remove that cultural trapping what is there?  Honestly it was first about character creation, however it's slowly moved to curiosity on them as a whole. 

Compared to others Madukar culture mainly consists of Korindians.

Right now, there's nothing out.  I'm sure that's coming down the pipeline of books they are working to put out.  So for now if you're speaking mechanically just ignore the racial edges and grab some of the edges that don't relate to race.  No there isn't anything out yet nor edges that you can take to reflect this choice other than avoiding Korindian edges.

If you're talking culturally in the world, you're basically going to come across as an outsider among korindians and others might find you odd in manner because I'd imagine growing up around a people so different from yourself would lead to some social awkwardness, especially if those people know what Korindians are like.
