Brevic Wisdom

Kingmaker image 1

The people of Brevoy are known for their somewhat pessimistic (they would say “realistic”) view of life, summed up in the many expressions on the lips of every farmer, trader, traveler, and tavern regular. Common Brevic sayings include:
     “When the wolf shows you his teeth, he’s not smiling.”
     “Riders at night carry no glad tidings.”
     “Winter always follows spring.”
     “As the stars see me” (a common oath asserting the truth) and “The stars see all.”
     “The dragon has two heads” (referring to both the crest of the Conqueror and the duplicity of the nobility).
     “The temple is close, but the night is cold. The tavern is far, but I have a cloak.”
     “Fire is everyone’s ally, but no one’s friend.”
     “Pharasma makes cradles for us all.”
     “No man dies wishing he had worked more.”
