The Wisdom Of The Ages


Geoff Le Pard

The Frngg are
an unsuperstitious race, generally, except when it comes to the formalities and
procedures around dying. The one thing the Frngg are insistent upon is that
none of the accumulated wisdom of their people shall be wasted. If someone
knows which berries taste good and which turn your earlobes purple then they
want this passed down. One day someone will invent the biro and the ring binder
but until then the deathbed transfer will have to do.
