Some landings were so severe that those colonists failed to save much of anything. These colonists formed recovered what they could and formed shared resource communities. This then led to a form of rigid tribalism. Some tribes became nomadic while others became very authoritarian and rigid in both their beliefs, and societal structures. The ruling centres in tribes become a contest between those of might, the tribes chieftain; and those of magic, the tribal shamans.

Once a tribal population reached a given area's resource limits, the tribe split and moved to a new areas. Some tribes split over purely ideological issues when consensus could not be met.

As the tribes spread they started forming a more shamanistic approach in their society. The colonies that resided on the Plains of Morag evolved into nomadic tribes based on the predominant life forms found in their gene-splice banks. Thus we had the Tribes of Capall (horse), Eallach (Cattle), Eilc (elk), Cat, and Madra (dog).

The area of settlement had a tendency to influence the ongoing makeup of there respective peoples. Those landing in the forests had a tendency to form quasi nomadic tribes that moved to new areas whenever they believed the resources of their current are became stressed. This allowed these areas to recover.

The hillman also could be classed as nomadic in that they moved between two or more areas on a seasonal basis.
