The Wayfinder Traditions are formal centaur philosophies of warfare and survivalism, the closest analogy of which found in other cultures of the world being the Ways of Blood of the Orcish Nation. Blurring tribal lines, members of the Wayfinder Traditions practice particular methods of survivalism, hunting, and combat techniques, standing as defenders of their tribes and go-betweens for other tribes with members of the same traditions. While largely a product of the Centaur nation, they occasionally teach the traditions to Cervitaur as well.

The major Wafinder Traditions are:

  • The Starherders, a school that unifies druidic magic and ranger-like martial competency, emphasizing the maintainance of natural harmony and readiness for the changes in seasons.
  • The Skyhunters, expert archers who defend their tribes from threats in the air. They're especially common in the rolling plains of the central lordless lands, where no real cover for attack from the air exists.
  • The Nightstalkers, a fairly rare tradition of the wayfinders which emphasizes stealth and cunning on the hunt. Cervitaur in particular excel at this tradition.
