Paths of Light and Inspiration – Kristian
David Mitchell asks, “Hi guys, I was wondering about how you guys use the paths of light / inspiration. Are they philosophies or religions? Do they have priests or just monks. Could you have clerics for them. How do they differ aesthetically. Are there non quori followers and would you allow a player to play a good follower of the path of inspiration or vice versa.

From David Mitchell: "Hi guys just wanted to ask a question about how you guys see and use the rivalry between house phiarlan specialising in intelligence with the investigators of house Medani and how they compete with the kings lanterns the zilargo trust, the aurum etc. I love the cold war espionage plot line with the heroes working the different factions or the factions playing them but was curious to know do you have the kings lanterns subcontracting intelligence gathering through...
Enemies of the Dragonmarked Houses – Wayne
Billy Rigby asks, "Dragonmark Houses are powerful, the 12 have a foothold on Khorvaire but who is against them? Who's the enemy of the 12?

Is anyone trying to end the Houses and if so, why?" Wayne offers his ideas.
Conflict with Aberrant Marked – Keith
Gabriel Krotkov asks, "Keith mentioned that the standard houses began the War of the Mark partially to suppress the "source of power" coming from aberrant marks. What economic threat did the aberrant marks pose to the houses? I get that there must have been a popular fear of the real danger posed by aberrant marks, but if that's the inciting factor in the War of the Mark why was the main opposition towards Aberrants coming from the Twelve?

Neutrality of Dragonmarked Houses in the Last War – Kristian
Gil asks, "What is the expectation of a dragonmarked house and/or a nation from a dragonmarked member assigned to support a national army unit on the front line? There is usually a lot of questions/conflicts that come up when there is a mixed PC party of soldiers and dragonmarked heirs when running a Last War scene. Clearly a PC can break the rules/norm, but it will be good to understand the "company-line" as there are a lot of interest conflicting scenarios that can arise in the heat of...
