The custom of storm-peace evolved long ago in
response to the sudden and severe storms that
plague this area. All Native creatures abide by it.
The basic concept is that an automatic truce
exists between all individuals and groups who seek
shelter in neutral territory during a lightning storm.
Such weather is simply too dangerous for fighting,
regardless of people’s feelings toward one other.
Storm-peace is assumed to be in effect unless
someone specifically rejects it. Even so, whenever
two strangers meet during a lightning storm, they
often greet one another by asking “Storm-peace?”
simply to ensure that the other knows and respects
Storm-peace applies to any thinking humanoid,
though not necessarily to other creatures. Many
people assume, however, that it applies to any
creature able to ask for it, and many legends tell of
bards singing songs to dragons or other dangerous
monsters during a storm-peace.
