Actually, the barbarians who sacked Old Tanium didn’t wear woad.
The barbarians Maureen Ramsay is descended from probably did, though.
Of course, the Old Tanians would argue that the Meerish and Weserlander royal armies which battered the Tanian Republic into submission and declared the Restored Empire were pretty much the same as the mustachioed (but probably woadless) barbarians who had sacked the old capital some centuries prior.
I really, really like Maureen.
cassie’s bra is cute!!
But this is all dancing around the question that science really wants answered: how many Old Tanians were vampires?!
I second both Chupaflora and Jesse!
Then… Jane walks back in when they are in the middle of the act. What does Chartannian propriety say about situations such as that?
