Shadows over Innistrad
For the Kessiger, Life is work
Kessigers are farmers, millers, weavers, stone masons: They are close to the land and must work hard for every meal. This makes the self reliant, pragmatic, and planspoken. A Kessinger doesn't purchase tools from the general store; he forges them himself. She doesn't learn arithmetic or memorize the names of royal families; she learns harvest dates and the shapes of edible weeds. He goesn't quote great works of literature; he calls it like he sees it, in his own simple words.
Kessingers and Avacyn
Kessigers are hardheaded and unpretentious people, and the face-to-face realism of the Avacyn religion fits right into their worldview. Kessigers belive in "the worked earth below us, the hand-hewn stone walls around s, and the angel above us." However they don't trust the shiny boots of the big-city cathars, the pristine fingernails of Gavony ghost-hunters, or the out-of-touch decrees handed down from the aristocrats of the High City of Tharben
Etiquette and the Supernatural
Superstition and fear of supernatural creatures has woven its way into etiquette in Kessig. When you meet someone for the first time, it's polite to show that you are wearing an item made from silver. Wreaths of living wood are commonly given as gifts, and are often placed on the door of a home where a child has just been born, a gesture meant to protect the child's life from vampires. It's customary to eat sour root soup before traveling, or to fast for up to a day before a long trip, babits that are though to make one less appealing to warewolves and other hungry beasts.
