My thoughts are halfway between Cheka and Moonhunter. I'd suggest reediting it as per moonhunter, then I'll vote. It is definately a good start, with lots of detail, but not enough in some areas. Go to Comment
A culture has a tradition of wearing animal pelts as a sign of status or job. Carpenters might wear beaver skins, Masons have a moleskin hood to their cloak, Gaurdsmen might have badger pelts. Done to show the culture's respect for nature and how much of nature is equal to each other.
