The Blade of the Raven Queen
Honour for the Zingarans is a very real concept, built of a character’s reputation, moral identity and self-perception. This sense of honour is the guiding principle of Zingaran society and is never a matter of mere lip-service. Indeed, honour is an all-important issue. Zingarans of honour are always alert for insults. Actual or suspected, insults will impugn a Zingarans honour. A Zingarans honour also extends to his wife, his family and his beloved. Impugned honour will usually result in a duel or other form of violent redress. Among the aristocracy and the knighthood, honour is the measure of standing, setting them apart from the common man. To those who hold a code of honour, it is as real as a castle, yet vastly more important, for a castle can be rebuilt if destroyed and honour is wounded forever if stained.
