Hospitality Customs

Hospitality is considered to be a very important to the People of Marthis, bards are full of tales of the ills of those that dared to violate the rules of Hospitality

These customary mannerisms were expected of everyone as a way of showing courtesy and respect. While hosts were expected to generously welcome and provide food and shelter for passing travelers, despite their financial status, guests were likewise expected to be polite and appreciative towards their hosts and sometimes even reimburse them in the form of goods, services, or labour. Given the structure of Marthis society, where the majority of people had to rely upon the yields of their own farm and occasionally trading to simply survive the winter, being welcoming and supportive to all would be a fundamental strategy for the survival of their population. For trading, traveling, and relaying news, it was essential to value hospitality when receiving guests and respectfulness when being received. Even sworn eneimes obey these rules when called upon as the murder of a guest is a grave crime before the gods. Nearly every race within the Kingdom respects these rules.
