Flags and symbols

Postby Magic_Octopus » Wed Jan 20, 2016 5:25 am

Are there official flags or symbols for the main kingdoms and/or powers in Barsaive? Or are flags not part of the setting? Some sort of shield device I think would be appropriate to differentiate between Throal's and Thera's military forces, for instance.

If there aren't any official ones, has anyone come up with something cool?

Barring those, I can always google stuff, but thought I'd ask.

The triangular symbol I use as my avatar is the symbol for the Kingdom of Throal.

I know the t'skrang aropagoi have symbols they use (though I don't recall them offhand).

There may be information about that for other powers in some of the other books, but nothing springs to mind.

Where did you find the Symbol for Throal? I knew they had one, but never saw a picture.
The Symbols for the different T'skrang Aropagois can be found in "Serpent River"

There are either depictions or descriptions of most of the major power's Symbols, but they are scattered through different books. That would be a really interesting project. :) Here are some good examples of the Throalic crest:

That's actually the shield Strikeback, isn't it?

Hi,

you'll find the symbols of the troll clans in the Skyraider sourcebook. And one or two symbols for orcs in the "Blades" adventure. Some ED novels have pictures and descriptions of Flags and Symbols as well. Thera has the sun as a symbol in his flag. The sun is surrounded by a few rays and within the sun is a circle, which repesents Thera as the centre of the sun :-) The Bloodwood has a symbolized Rose. Even a Iopos flag has shown up in some 2nd edition stuff, it looks a little bit like a dragon claw (from my perspective a good idea)
