        Um, yes. TR p.29 says 1200 people (600) adults, divided into 6 bloodlines. Each bloodline occupies ~3 steads. That's ~70 people per stead. Unfortunately, the "average stead description" on p.18 says 70 adults. So more people or fewer steads, I say. Conflicting sources, indeed....

        Right, but the point is to make a stead that matches the details of TR and ST, right? So the stead should fit neatly into the 1200 people, 6 bloodlines, model. As I see it, Swensline is set to break off from BLOODLINE sometime in the next generation or so, but at the moment they are still part of it.
