As I read this I saw a vision of a wizard in bonded servitude, much like a queen bee in the middle of a hive. While the staff can create 1000 a year, and I assume that would be at one time in a short time span, I was more thinking like this bonded wizard was sitting in a dark central cell/cave/dungeon creating 0-10 beings a day in whatever configuration the "master" wanted. They wizard would give the geas to follow the command of the true master and the master would give "orders" to the wizard depending on the need.
For what purpose, I didn't get that far, but they entire idea of a renewable source of servants is pretty fascinating! Go to Comment
I find the history of sauces interesting. As British as Worcestershire is, the story is they were trying to recreate an Indian sauce of unknown provenance. The Romans covered everything in a fermented fish sauce called garum that they borrowed from the Greeks. Medieval manors had a separate kitchen called the saucery just to make sauces, headed by a saucerer. Go to Comment
