This is me testing the shoutbox, because shouting is a great stress relief and it would be a shame if it doesn't work.

The Thur'ruk

Known for their wisdom and experience in all manners of mysticism, the Thur'ruk (Spirit Speakers in archaic orcish) are the tribe's spiritual guides in times of both peace and war. The Elder rank of the Path of Wisdom, the Thur'ruk are assisted ably by the Gosh'kar.

A small circle of some of the tribe's most respected and venerated orcs, be they sages, seers, loremasters or mystics, the Thur'ruk often serve as crucial advisers to the Chieftain. They perform most of the rituals required for the tribe in order to preserve the careful balance between the living and the spirits, and are tasked with maintaining the Annals which document the tribe's present and distant past.

The circle of the Thur'ruk is clouded with a mysterious façade, as only its own members and the Varog'Gor know of the rituals that bind the Thur'ruk so closely together.

Origins:

Known as Spirit Speakers in the Red Blade tongue, the Thur-Ruk Oracles have been a part of Clan Redblade for as long as one could remember. In effect serving as the clan's Far Seers, the Thur-Ruk served as the spiritual guides of the clan. As such, they were often seen as the Wolfking's advisers when he would require aid of matters that were closely tied to spirituality or the finer way of thinking.

When Mruthgor took over control of the clan, it was the circle of Thur-Ruk Oracles who aided him in doing so, becoming a vital part of the Cult of the Wolf that rose at the time. Whilst the Varog'Gor practiced the more bestial side of teachings within the cult, it was in fact the Thur-Ruk who ensured spiritual balance was found within the tribe, and made sure it was kept that way. They particularly excelled at befriending the aspect of the Wild, which may well be due to the fact that wolves involved a great deal of their practices.

Requisite:

Accepted training from another Thur'ruk or the Chieftain as a Gosh'kar and, once approved, perform the Rite of Vision. The training is highly specialised dependent on the craft of the trainee, and may include advanced rituals, punishing pilgrimages and mastering the Tribeslore.
