Interesting read (detailed but brief) for any GM looking for "realistic" medieval mercantilism/economics info.

I remember seeing these things all the time when I was a kid in Florida. I didn't know they were weird until I moved out of state and never saw them again. Nice to have a name to put to them.

"The Plain of Jars" sounds like a randomly generated name from a Dwarf Fortress region, but it's a real thing.

Haha! (Curse Tablets Discovered in 2,400-Year-Old Grave)

So random, yet so specific! Curses targeted on barkeeps?? Made me lol at work when I read it. Poor, poor Demetrios and Phanagora. And apparently the curses themselves were beautifully and eloquently written. Love it!! Good times...good times.

 "I will smite down a dog's ear on your tongue"...just permanently entered my GM lingo notebook.
