Well, now they're gone. I have to admit: Maybe those stats made too much limits to GM:s.
But on the other hand... well, huck it. They're gone. Go to Comment

Yes, there is, but I think it's better suitable for regions, not for whole worlds. Well, it would be too much work to ONLY move Apierta (part of my world) here anyway. But, maybe some day... Go to Comment

In the Middle Ages, and even up to the early twentieth century, most of Europe's executioners were related: the Sansons and Deiblers in France, the Pierrepoints in England, etc. The reason for this was that, it generally not being socially acceptable to, well, kill people, executioners and their children could, generally, only marry other executioners or their children.
The parallels with massively inbred, Hapsburg-style dynasties are obvious- imagine a rather clever but politically inept satirist noting this, and being sentenced by the latter to a meeting with the former; even worse, imagine a dynasty of deranged and deformed executioners- think Texas Chaisaw Massacre with government funding.
