Mammon's Holy Defenders    Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (City/ Ruin)

The thief looked around to make sure noone was near and then grabbed a golden jewel-studded chalice.

"Put that back and leave this holy place, or face death for your act of sacriliege."

Random Idea Seed View All Idea Seeds

       By: Psalmanazar

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.
