Khajiit culture

Post by Le Grimacier on Tue 12 Mar 2013, 6:42 pm

I've found some discussions on Reddit that could explain a lot of things about how Khajiit are thinking. It is important to show things like this in game. It makes the background more alive and realistic and show how the Khajiit are different from humans and elves.

Makes me think of the naked couple from Bloodmoon. Except in the middle of the mead hall...

Khajiit are more liberal than the other races.
From Ahzir Traajijazeri
"Fusozay Var Var": "Enjoy Life"

Life is short. If you have not made love recently, please, put down this book, and take care of that with all haste. Find a wanton lass or a frisky lad, or several, in whatever combination your wise loins direct, and do not under any circumstances play hard to get.
Very very more liberal...
From Lord Vivec's Sword-Meeting With Cyrus the Restless
Cyrus moved the pillow and saw it: a dark rock weathered smooth with age, encrusted with traces of glistening curves. He glared at G’latha. “And you knew about this?”

“Yes,” the cat said. “G’latha found it amusing. Also, G’latha thought that maybe its magic would seep into your brainpan and teach you vaba maaszi lhajiito, do-sura.”

Cyrus got on his feet and grunted some admonishment. He found his sword near the cutter tools and hefted it, looking at its grip and wondering why it felt a bit off. Had the dunmer wizard knocked its balance out? Had he even set aside the saber in that whirling motion he’d made? Cyrus couldn’t remember. He remembered only how ridiculously fast it had all been.

“That book also teaches ahzirr traajijazeri,” he said to G’latha.

“Did you ever notice we hid that lesson at the bottom? Speaking of lessons, it seems like do-sura learned a few.”
That make me think that martial art could be something traditionally learned in Elsweyr. And because Khajiit are bored with abstract things it could be a way they use to teach their philosophy.

Ahem, interesting. Who knew Elsweyr was full of sex and philosophy?

When I said "Philosophy", I meant for a Khajiit it's more something about having a good common sense than spiritual doctrine. They are too pragmatic.
Vaba maaszi lhajiito is the ta'agra for "it's necessary to run away" and it comes before ahzirr traajijazeri "we justly take by force".
