The People in Charge
There are four people or
groups of people that are in charge of Vally. The top two are like gods
or demi-gods to the land. They hold the power over the other people in
the land of Vally. These two are known as the Man and the Stance Mans.
The other two are the Sumers and the Per-Nal Man.
The Man is the head god
of the land; he is the man in charge. He has the ultimate power in the
Vally. From my research I have discovered that the title the Man is a shortening
for a longer name, but what the full name was still eludes me. It is from
him that all the other titles for the people who are in charge derive their
names. Though he holds great power in Vally, he is rarely seen, he relies
on his Stance Mans to carry out his wishes.
The Stance Mans are like demi-gods
of Vally. They are under the orders from the Man, but they also have much
power of their own. Rarely does the Man get involved in daily issues, so
it is the Stance Mans who keep things moving in day-to-day life. They hold
the power of who comes to stay in this land and if a citizen must leave.
Yet though they have this power they have a weakness, the Sumers.
The Stance Mans
The Sumers aren't really in
charge of anything in Vally, but they do play an important role. They are
wandering tribes people who do not really live in the land of Vally, but
visit it often (usually to pay homage to the odd religion of the Sea Sems,
to be talked about later). From my research I have found that Sumers' ancestors
used to visit the building where the culture of Vally was found, and they
do so now simply to continue a tradition. It seems that a Sumer has some
strange power over the Stance Mans. If a Sumer gets upset then a Stance
Man will hurry to try to make that Sumer happy again, or as happy as possible
anyway. In this the Stance Mans exert their power over the clans, so that
the clans will try to make any Sumer in their territory happy also.
The Per-Nal Man
The Per-Nal Man is a person
who leaves the land of Vally and goes to other lands in search of people
who might like to live in Vally. When they do find someone who does want
to then they have an interview. Also the person who wishes to move into
Vally must meet with a Stance Man and be approved of.
