How do the different cultures deal with dead community members etc?
Battari: Immolation seems a suitable way of disposal.
Dromal: Burial is performed by inferior castes. Presumably High castes use elaborate tombs and mausoleums etc as a show of status.
Dummonii: Possibly varied customs exist. Possibly including the following;
Leaving corpses in trees in sacred groves?
Burial. Especially important corpses are interned in mounds and monoliths?
Hutzlunr: Funeral rites are described in the OT book. I imagine ashes are scattered on a favoured site often water or from a peak.
Pelosia: Burial in the earth or entombment in catacombs or crypts?
Pyraxian: Immolation in the Eternal Flame is common, though others prefer internment in the Bronze Sepulchre.
Raphelia: Presumably burial, at sea being a common custom amongst those of the coast.
Uru: Varied customs. Some presumably practise a form of ritual cannibalism.
Yerwi: Presumably burial.
Hoileain: Burial at sea.
Leonian: Burial in groves, throwing into swamps or dumping in the sea.
Zammite: immolation and subsequent rites are then performed with the ashes.

Very informative post. We may need to consider collating such game expansions into a future product. :-D

After my posting, I noticed that a lot of material on these customs is in the early OT material done by Dan and Fifty. I'm not sure what's secret and what is ammended, so I'll let them post from this source.
