It certainly makes a change to have the Bastard's biological mother be uncertain, rather than the father. (And Greg's made use of the ambiguous paternity with his Bastards - such as Thailog having three fathers.)

So I was recently doing some research on the historical Vlad Tepes for a fic I'm writing and I stumbled on an interesting factoid...

Apparently there is debate as to the identity of Vlad's biological mother. Though his father, Vlad Dracul, was married to Princess Cneajna of Moldavia at the time of Vlad Jnr birth, he was also known to have kept a number of mistresses. Legitimacy was apparently not a requirement for inheriting the Wallachian throne, only that the heir be "of the male royal bone".

Which makes me wonder how well the historical Dracula fits the archetype of the Weismanian Bastard?

There is balance in all things. Live in symmetry with the world around you. If you must blow things up and steal from those around you, THAT'S WHAT RPGS ARE FOR!


Last evening, I posted a mention of a PBS program shortly to air, a documentary about Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament, that featured some material about the Stone of Destiny. To my surprise, the program immediately following it (the series finale of "Inspector Lewis") featured a guest appearance from David Warner (the voice of the Archmage).
