Is this based on actual ancient practices?

Suicide was actually a taboo. But Mordriti is fictional.
Those who had committed suicide were not buried in order not to desecrate the land. Rather their bodies were thrown into the evil forest and left to decay.

I think if you're going to go that far, it would just be better to get it over quickly in a battle where you let someone lop your head off.

Lol... They consider Mordriti a sacred ritual. A Better way for them to go to than fighting a battle they're still gonna lose.

Does it still work if the witnesses are also performing Mordriti?

Very interesting world building you're doing with Warrior's Wings :) Adds so much mystique and depth to the tribes.

I wonder was this inspired by the Samurai Seppuku or another ritual?

Haha You're right man. This was inspired by the seppuku ritual.

Wow!

"Brutal agonizing death"-
I wonder if this maybe also keeps people from committing suicide?

"Mordriti" almost have the words Murder (which is "Mord" in my native language) and Ritual. Is this intentional?

Wow. I actually got the first part from "mort" french for death. Good to know it has a link to your language too.

They definitely do. There are lots of stuff we may not find in the story, WW facts are a good way to reveal them.

Great patterns! (I'm terrible with patterns, so I really admire your wok on them)

Oooooo thank you!! Sincerely, I don't have much luck with patterns either. This is actually one of my best.
