Scras,is it all right with you if I link Rachet with this NPC that I am planning to create? I assure you that it won't interfere with Rachet's story line anymore than Alia did with Voonasi's. Go to Comment
The size and number of knots in hair, tied around neck, or hanging from belt could signify family, importance, worship, guild affiliations. Being able to translate the meaning of the size and placement of knots can give you a a large understanding of who somebody is.
May be used in a more barbaric society. Where in cities peoples clothes and crests show who they are, barbarians have no need for this so use knots.
