K. This hit me right away, among a million other things, so:

Did the Ramen always burn the wood?

Know what I'm getting at?

I would respectfully suggest that....yes, the Ramen have always burned wood. They possessed "horse-lore", NOT "wood-lore". That's my story, and I'm sticking to it...!

They weren't vegetarians, and the Plains would've had enough wood sources, not to mention the mountains on the southern edge of the Plains.

Given the environmental themes of the Chrons, perhaps they DID burn rubbish.

Dried horse dung probably burns. Native Americans burned dried buffallo dung didn't they?

I've always wondered what cooking over burning dung did to the taste of the food cooked there.

Evidently there was/is by definition. And the definition is that this was how the author wrote it. Big Grin

I suspect that the silver lining would be that it would keep the "armchair quarterbacks" away from the cook. Smile

Chicken. With or without a spoon.

Don't know about wood burning ramen but I believe it's more of horse-sense than horse-lore. Razz

Which brings up a nagging question.

What feat did the Ranayan do, to achieve a group of people to give up their current lifestyle and bind generation after generation of their decendences to a life of servitude to a group of horses?
I mean if you look at the way they venerate the horses, it looks more like a religion.

I'm sure that a little soft shoe footwork and a "Shuffle Off to Buffalo" wouldn't have convinced them.



And as far as burning horsedung. It sure would take the fastest of Manethralls to keep pace with the horses with a pooper-scooper.

I don't think there was any 'event' that inspired the Ramen devotion.

It's simply the beauty, power, and overall awesomeness embodied by the Ranyhyn. They are beings of true Earthpower and for the Ramen, that is enough.

There may not have been an event, but the Ranyhyn could have become receptive to the idea after Khelenbrabanal, and so allowed it to be.

When there was nothing else, they ate the Top Ramen.
