King of Dragon Pass


  • Most divinations will reveal that the husband is in fact an adulterer.
  • If you outlaw the husband, and pay the bride price, the <Z> clan will also be pleased, knowing you acted with honor.
  • You can outlaw <Y> but still keep the bride price.  However, your reputation will suffer with the <Z> clan since it was your clan member who broke tradition...and in a divorce, the bride gets back her bride price.
  • Simply paying the bride price will satisfy <X> and her clan, though not as much as outlawing her husband.
  • While you may not have proof, <X>'s clan will assume you tolerate the husband's philandering ways, and your reputation will drop.
