 The Red Riding royal line was set by a heroine who tricked a clan of werewolves that had preyed on her tribes, leading them to their doom. The Royal banner reflects this.

BARBARIANS AND NON-HUMANS

Desert Raiders don’t need banners their clans are small enough for them not to be necessary.

Khansmen simple side under the skulls of their former tribal Khans attached to spears untilt heir rot or are destroyed in battle.

Hesclek also do not use banners are such but each clan has horns shaped like totem animals of their communities.

Dwarfs do not use banners but each surviving kraal has a unique tattoo of strips on each kraalmember – this identifies the community, job and standing of each dwarf.

Elves design and fashion banners for each campaign as the whimsy of the Heartgrove Elders takes them. Usually these silken works of art are designed to specifically insult and terrify their enemies. Usual ‘population management’ of Orcs etc; do not merit a banner.

Orcs clans identify themselves through war-paint.
