*pulls out sacred leaf/branch thing and waves it around* OH! WE PRAISE YOU, GODS!
...I told you I wouldn't post well, didn't I?
You mean a palm branch?
Generally, that's Christianity... I don't know whether the God's would be happy having another religion's flora waved at them...
Oh yes, sign me up as a follwer of Kaze!
ACTUALLY..."The palm branch was a symbol of triumph and victory in pre-Christian times. The Romans rewarded champions of the games and celebrated military successes with palm branches. Jews followed a similar tradition of carrying palm branches during festive times." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palm_tree

Seth, allow me to say first of all that I am extremely, extremely impressed with this thread. It is an idea I have had for a little while but never had the time or the creativity to put together. The Ninja Clans of Gaia was about the extent of my ability. And you definately did better than anything I could come up with.
I have yet to read the entire thing, but I read a very large chunk of it, and I will finish it soon, since school is out and I have a chunk of time on my hands before graduation.
I just noticed that this seems to be a pattern in the GCD right now, the threads that have taken an aspect to Gaia, written a back story, and incouraged other users to join in with it, like this, the Ninja Clans, the astrology. I have a friend who is planning something based on pirates, possibly something with that NPC people are calling Kim.
