Pathfinder / Eberron FR
Le Thrane est une nation théocratique dont le peuple, composé principalement d’humains est dévoué à l’église de la Flamme d’Argent. La Gardienne de la Flamme, Jaëla Daran, une fillette de onze ans, a un rôle principalement spirituel ; quant à la reine Diani, elle ne fait plus apparition qu’aux cérémonies. C’est le conseil des cardinaux qui dirige véritablement le Thrane.
The following turns of phrase are uniquely Thrane.
“Crooked!” An expletive, similar to “drat!”
“Flame forgive me.” An expression usually preceding or following a nasty curse or insult.
“What fi lth!” An expression of discontent or an indication of nonsense, similar to “hogwash!”

Thrane culture demands restraint and control, but when a Thrane shows emotion, everyone knows it. Offended or upset, a Thrane may very well respond like a focused blast of fire, either incinerating what invokes his displeasure or smoldering for a long, long time. It is considered rude to shout or rant, so Thranes show their opposition in very brief and very precise displays. Thrane citizens grow up learning exactly where the boundaries of propriety and modesty lie, but the wise ones learn how to defy such rules without explicitly breaking them. When rules are circumvented, success can justify forgiveness.
Some foreigners see this as a double standard, but natives consider such behavior a very precise code of conformity. When dealing with elders or authority, young Thranes are reverent, obedient, and proper, but when left to their own devices—as is often the case among Thrane adventurers—they burn with passion and intensity, either resolving problems with the swiftness of an inferno or searing all opposition until it melts away.
Thranes do not typically see themselves as zealous, fanatical, or hypocritical. While these extremes do exist in Thrane society, such attitudes are more villainous than heroic. Thranes are certainly very passionate, and that passion applies to all aspects of life, not just religion. Many learn about heroism from an early age, including a few notable stories of spectacular failures that are now seen as heroic. Boys and girls play at being paladins, and in recent years, many young women go through a “Jaela Daran” phase.
The nation’s heroes are not reckless or stubborn in battle—those who are don’t survive for very long. However, the average Thrane has an instinctive sense of right or wrong, just as a paladin has a supernaturally strong sense for what is good and evil. Many are dedicated to preserving what they know is right, and more important, supporting those
