Reading Arnold K's totally sweet post about Wizards and Witches inspired me to try to come up with a way to think up bizarre taboos for wizards and monastic types on the fly. I imagine some of them will take more interpreting than others, but let's try it out!
Here's the table:
|3||At all||3||In the presence of others||3||Use||3||Alcohol|
|4||In vain||4||Between sunrise and sunset||4||Own||4||Sex|
|5||Between sunset and sunrise||5||Abstain from||5||Words|
And let's try a few examples:
- (Roll: 1, 4, 2, 6, 4) Must never tolerate sex in vain (I see this as a belief that sex is a necessary evil for making babies and followers of this belief would be intolerable prudes)
- (Roll: 1, 4, 3, 8, 7) Must speak with blood in the presence of others in vain (Okay, this one's weird. Maybe when in the presence of others, these people must address people based on their social class, or something weird and magical with blood?)
- (Roll: 2, 2, 6, 7, 1) Should see meat in excess every day (These guys would have to surround themselves with raw meat, more than they can eat)
It's not perfect, but I think it might be fun if you're stuck for ideas.
