Hello everyone, just starting a thread because the forum seems slow today :) |
I am looking to get some ideas/information on the differences of a Clan and a Sept. Or is it comparing Apples and Oranges? From the little reading I have done it seems that a Clan is a large family recognized as their own individual Title where a Sept is a smaller family that needs protection or has married into a larger Clan. Is this a correct assumption?
If so it is a "Once a Sept, Always a Sept" or once a clan gets it's own status would they be removed from being a Sept of another?
I see the McLea/Livingstone family as a Sept of another Clan and I feel that it weakens us because there are Livingstone or McLea's out there that go as a Sept of another instead of knowing that there was an offical recognition of this Clan.
So what does it really mean to be a Sept of another clan? Just a thought to stir conversations. :)
