The Arhiyao Clan: Another requested article, this time from the old Compendiums. A close look at a minor Aslan clan.
Loved that article, but something needs clarification.
In The Prodigal Outcast (Pirates of Drinax, book 1, pages 212 and 220), the planet Hkakh (Ranib/0807) belongs to the Tokolfeahr Clan (it's a plot device, too). Unfortunately, the Arhiyao Clan article says otherwise (Hkakh is "core territory" of the Arhiyao, Compendium 1, page 102).
There is an error, or it's just a side effect of Aslan politics? :wink:

Tempted to say the latter, but we will look into it :)

Perhaps the Tokolfeahr are vassals of the Arhiyao who had a dispute with the Ahroay'if that did not involve the host Arhiyao. Yes, it's complicated, but maybe it works?

Naah, too complicated. Just replace Hkakh with a different world in the commercial PDFs of Pirates of Drinax, and pretend nothing happened.

I always look for ways to keep printed and therefore canonical stuff true without wholesale changes. And I have a wildly liberal capacity for suspension of disbelief. :lol:

Oh well, I keep hoping Matt admits defeat, and give us the Holy Grail of Mongoose Traveller: official Errata files for the entire book line! :P

As if humans could ever understand the intracacies of Aslan clan politics.

I've pushed for corrections to published material as well, but lets not fool ourselves into thinking that a stack of official errata would end our raging debates over rules minutiae, or the quell the levels of scorn we as players heap upon the publishers of the games we play.
