this has just given me a thought.....
(it also relates to the dragon/bloodline thing in another thread)

several (most, in fact. a good thing IMHO) of the "monsters" in cerelia
are described as having relatively advanced societies (compared with
the vos, for example).
how implausible is it that, say, a giant could commit bloodtheft/forced
investiture on a scion? (avoiding the whole "were they at deismar"
given that, why don't these blooded "monsters" go on to form realms and
everything else?
